Was told last min that the restaurant will be closed due to unforeseen circumstances on the day of my reservation. I was surprised when they offered me cash vouchers and I ended up only paying for half the bill! Great ambience, great food and excellent service. Love the DIY tako balls too. Would definitely recommend this place!

Enjoy their signature golden fried skewers along with a Shikuwasa Lemon Sour or Okinawa Sling Highball πŸ‹πŸΊ
Super love the fried egg skewer where the yolk is still soft & slightly runny 🐣

Other items in the Okinawa Fair menu includes okinawa-style grilled pork spare ribs, umi budo (okinawa 'sea grapes'), okinawa mozuku (seaweed) & taco salad 🐷

A really great place to just chill & relax with your friends on the weekends or after work 😌

My dining partner and I made takobabies! :) we decided to go for the original tako set. ($10)

The set came with an oiled takoyaki griddle pan, enough pre-measured batter for 9 takoyaki balls, a bowl of red ginger and 9 pieces of tako. First, we poured the batter and let it solidify sufficiently before placing a piece of tako and some ginger in the center of the hole in the griddle pan. After the batter had solidified significantly, the staff showed us how to flip the takobaby with sticks so the other side could cook.

Our takobabies came out slightly overdone and misshapen, but we loved them all the same. After they had cooled down slightly I dressed them with sauce (they paired fantastically with kushikatsu sauce) and popped them in my mouth. The outside was slightly crispy before giving way to a soft and silky inside with a crunch from the tako. The red ginger was a surprisingly important element as it gave the takoyaki a refreshing tang.

All in all, an enjoyable experience in a cosy restaurant which exuded traditional Japanese vibes. I adore KKT's concept and definitely appreciate what it brings to the Clarke Quay dining scene.

We ordered the Meaty 5 ($10), Seafood 5 ($13.20) and the Vegetable 5 ($8.40). It was quite difficult to identify what the meat was because everything was 1 color. But a definite highlight for me was the unagi kushikatsu, which was tender and flavorful beneath the layer of crisp breadcrumbs. My dining partner favored the cheese and ham kushikatsu.

I liked how the skewers were served piping hot and and the batter was crispy but not greasy. It really was the perfect deep fried skewer. It went well with their special sweet and salty sauce. Rolling a skewer in the chiritori cheese nabe sauce resulted in a delicious, flavorful bite.

I was quite grateful for the bowls of cabbage they provided. Dipping them in the sauce provided a refreshing palate cleanser and allowed us to savor the skewers more slowly rather than wolfing all of them down at once. My dining partner and I went through 3 bowls of the cabbage leaves easily.
