Shirokane Tori-Tama, Singapore
Whoa - that was unexpectedly good. Located next to Cafe Garb at Robertson Walk was this new kushiyaki place (11 Unity Street #01-02, 6836-5680), which I assumed to be not that different from my usual haunts over at Cuppage Plaza. And the menu at first seemed surprisingly limited, specializing in a wealth of chicken parts but really not much else, aside from a few veggies plus a random stick of pork or even duck. But I went ahead with a barrage of some of my yakitori favorites as well as some other chicken parts that I'd never tried before, plus some greens to round it all out.
It was amazing. Wow. Not only were the ingredients of top-notch quality, but everything was perfectly cooked. One had to pay a price for it though - each of the items were single stick servings, and I ordered enough on my own to nearly hit a triple-digit tab. But it was definitely worth it, making this place instantly skyrocket to become one of my favorite yakitori places in Singapore. Only when I looked up this place later did I realize why this was the case: this was actually a transplant from Japan...a Zagat rated place from Japan at that. Either way, I'm coming back, even if they don't take American Express. Perhaps next time I'll give some of those chicken innards a try just for the sake of it.
