Visit this new kid in the Arab Street neighbourhood for superbly prepared kushikatsu (Japanese deep-fried skewers). It is started by the Unlisted Collection, which runs several popular joints including Burnt Ends and Cheek by Jowl, so expectations are high. The space is hip but laid-back — come by on a chill date, or to hang out with a couple of friends. As its name suggests, the Signature Kushikatsu ($2 to $8 per skewer) here are coated in panko (Japanese breadcrumbs), and the beauty lies in how the batter is evenly distributed, thin, crunchy and remarkably oil-free. Options run the gamut from prawns and scallops to pork neck and baby corn — they're all great, so you're unlikely to go wrong regardless of what you choose. The skewers are made for pairing with drinks and there are plenty here, from wines to sakes and Japanese beers. Kanpai!
Avg Price: $30 per person
