A well-known name amongst Japanese gourmands since 1980.
The food: Rokukakutei is renowned for their kushikatsu or kushiage (think skewered tempura, but with panko) that’s served omakase style and often paired with wine for the complete Rokukakutei experience. There are just two options on the menu — the $134 set includes 20 skewers, with salad, pickles, fruit jelly and bread, and the $288 set which consists of 15 skewers with the same sides, additional desserts, espresso, champagne and a glass of red or white wine for every 3 dishes. Some of the freshly imported seasonal ingredients you’ll see here include Japanese yam, angel prawn, Wagyu beef, mountain caviar “tonburi”, all paired with a recommended homemade sauce like mustard with sesame, salt & pepper, lemon & mustard, red wine sauce and shoyu.
The space: Intimate and lively 40-seater set in a categorically contemporary Japanese interior, featuring counter seats where you can watch the actions unfold.
The buzz: Led by Chef Hideyuki Tanada (@hide.rokkaku), Ginza Rokukakutei Singapore is the first overseas outlet of the one-Michelin-starred restaurant from Osaka, Japan.
