Shop/Food Review

Ms Teatime Says:

Located on Bukit Timah Road, a short walk away from Sixth Avenue MRT Station is HIBIKI Yakitori Lounge, a Japanese restaurant hailing from Saitama Japan. In case you are wondering, this is not a HIBIKI Whiskey specialty place. Opened by HIBIKI Food Service Group, the "HIBIKI" here comes from the family name of the group's founder, Bunji Hibiki.

 

HIBIKI Food Service Group is famous in Japan for its Miso Barbecue Sauce, Yakitori and Grilled Skewers made from quality ingredients. The Group even owns a Yakitori Theme Park 全や連総本店 TOKYO that showcases Yakitori from different Japanese Prefectures.

HIBIKI Grilled Skewers

With this background, it is pretty obvious that HIBIKI Yakitori Lounge specializes in Yakitori (and other grilled skewers). Indeed, the grilled skewers, which feature tender juicy meats in a well balanced sauce, are delicious. In addition to grilled skewers, HIBIKI also serves delicious Japanese Hotpots, premium Japanese Sake and Shochu.

At HIBIKI, expect to find quality meats (Japanese Kurobuta - black pork and Malaysian kampung chicken), Japanese imported vegetables (leek, sweet potato, fruit tomato, etc) and sake (Japanese rice wine) from Kagamiyama, one of the smallest brewery in Japan. Being small, the sake master will be able to personally monitor and make sure that every sake made within the brewery is of good quality. If Sake is not your thing, HIBIKI also provides a range of Shochu. While sake is fermented from rice, shochu is a distilled spirit made from fruits and vegetables.

Sake Shabu Shabu

For hotpots, there is choice of Sake Shabu Shabu or Miso Sukiyaki. As the name suggests, Sake Shabu Shabu uses a sake dashi broth. Personally, I cannot detect the sake flavour after cooking but I enjoyed the light sweet broth. After all the ingredients are finished, add in Japanese Rice/Udon to soak up the remaining soup. Rice is recommended for the Sake hotpot while udon is recommended for Miso Sukiyaki. Unlike the typical Sukiyaki, Miso Sukiyaki is savoury instead of sweet. After cooking, the thick Miso broth will be absorbed by the udon and the end result is a slightly wet fried udon that looks like Black Hokkien Mee. This is on the saltier side and will please diners who like stronger flavours. As I have a light palette, I prefer the Sake hotpot.

Tatami Iwashi
Sweet Potato Cake

Apart from the above, HIBIKI also serves unique dishes (for eg. Tatami Iwashi and Sweet Potato Cake) that are not commonly found on other menus.

Given the exclusive menu and the use of superior ingredients, prices at HIBIKI are understandably on the higher side, so I will reserve it for special occasions or days when I want to indulge. However, HIBIKI does run some good promotions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so plan around these days if you want to save some bucks.
