The guys behind Geylang's popular The Skewer Bar are behind this izakaya concept at Siglap. What sets them apart from the many Japanese joints in Singapore is their unabashed feature of local flavours, along with extremely wallet-friendly prices — prices are nett, with no GST or service charge. Bring a few friends along to this spacious spot, not only to knock back a few drinks with, but also to partake in a communal feeding experience. Burppler Jasper Six&Seven highly recommends the Special Yaki Onigiri ($5 for two), which he describes to have a "smokey, hae bee hiam-belachan aroma". Other dishes to try include the Otah Tamago ($6.90), which cleverly combines lightly spiced otah and Japanese rolled egg, and Grilled Eggplant with Housemade Chilli ($5), which features a bed of soft smoky eggplant blanketed with chilli paste. The Oysters ($12 for three) are also plump and fresh, and you can even opt to have them grilled if you don't enjoy raw shellfish.
