To find out just what kind of magic can happen when Japanese yakitori meets Szechuan shao kao (barbecue), pop by CHIKIN on Bukit Pasoh — hint: it's delicious. The skewers here are marinated in Szechuan peppercorn sauce and then grilled over Binchotan flames for smoky tastiness. There are various chicken parts ranging from the familiar like Thigh ($3) and Chicken Meatballs ($4.50) to the slightly offbeat like Windpipe ($4) to keep diners happy and interested, along with a small selection of beef and pork skewers ($6 each), a good variety of vegetables including Shishito Pepper ($3.50) and Shiitake Mushrooms ($3.50), and some izakaya-style plates like the Asahi Clams in Spicy Garlic Butter Dashi ($14). The smoky skewers pair well with their cocktails made with infused spirits (gin, sake, whisky) and Japanese flair — try the fruity and refreshing Sake Sangria ($19). There are also beers (from $8), wines (from $18 a glass) and a lot more in between. Let loose, but be prepared for the morning hangover. Pro tip: Ask them to taper down the skewers' spiciness if you can't take the heat.
Avg Price: $30 per person
