Asparagus, lotus root, beef, pork, onion kushikatsu, served with macaroni salad, niku sui and rice

The is a DIY potato salad. The crunchy bacon make this dish taste nice! Remember to order this when you dine here.

Super Japanese ambience and service. The décor, the menu on the wall, the shouting (the irasshaimase!s and arigatou gozaimasu!s and all - ah, Osaka) and the bell that chimes everytime a customer plays the Japanese dice-rolling game Chinchirorin for the Jim Beam Highball. Fun. Nice sauce. Evenly fried cheap kushikatsu ($1-$2.50). It was my first time trying highball. Is it supposed to be that diluted that I could not taste any alcohol?

Assorted Skewers ($1-$2.50)
My only regret @KKT.sg was not visiting earlier even though I’ve been asked to go several times. This place felt so welcoming I went back twice in a week! There was a distinctive laidback and jappy vibe as the place is packed with Japanese popping by for a drink after work. At $6 for most of their highballs, it’s no wonder everyone would rather order their highballs than pay $5 for water. I especially loved the skewers which was coated with a breaded crust that didn’t feel greasy nor too crunchy as the crumbs were of a very fine texture. I would try to recommend the skewer items except that every skewer I had during my dinner and lunch visits was great! Just remember to not only have the skewers with the standard dipping sauce but also with the spicy mayo!

Chiritori Hotpan ($18)
This came strongly recommended by @that_dex and I only wished we were back in the 22 degrees weather few weeks back keeping warm from the yummy broth of this stew. @KKT.sg serves this dustpan shaped hot pan that comes with a mountain size serving of vegetables stewing in the spicy miso soup with your choice of sliced beef or pork and beef offal. The hearty stew was semi sweet and savoury, a perfect blend. The beef slices were tender and those beef offals were the star of the dish. Apparently, the offals are from wagyu beef and it’s no wonder each piece of offal was melt-in-your-mouth good. This is definitely one dish to order!

I said I’d be back for this, and here I am! Just as good as the last time, you get a ridiculous mountain of bean sprouts, beef slices and wagyu beef intestines (which if you’re adverse to fat, this may not be your thing). 😂

Soooo satisfying on a cool night, that spicy broth is just perfect with the tau gey and beef. And that mug behind? My highball that cost a nifty $3! Play their game of dice and take your chances. Roll two die and if the result is an even number, your highball is $3, if it’s odd, you get a mega version of the drink at $12. Roll doubles and your highball is on the house! 🎲 🎲

Very nice finish to a satisfying meal. Served with hersheys sauce as you like.

Left to right, oysters (3), salmon (2 horizontal pieces on a stick), on the right aji mackerel (double) and we loved it and at the bottom 2 bacon cheese.. Ok for me. Nothing exciting. The long thin asparagus at the top is a must order we were told by staff and it was so good we ordered again. Everything served crisp and hot and juicy. But they don't serve water free, you have to buy a bottle for $5. Sake is 140ml at $9 and it's good quality for the price. Not harsh, quite smooth (we had it hot).

A rustic-looking Japanese izakaya with Jim Beam highball and all the usual grubs, but with a twist.

Absolutely lovin the kushikatsu, deep-fried to perfection. Prices are decent for food in Clarke Quay, and it’s available till late (good for hangover supper). The only inconvenience would be paying $3/head for some white cabbage... a mandatory cover charge.

In its first foray outside of Japan, where it has 168 shops, Kushikatsu Tanaka has found its first international outpost here in Singapore's Clarke Quay. They specialise in Osaka-style skewers ($1 to $2.50), crumbed in panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) and deep-fried till perfectly golden. Burppler Dex Neo especially loves their Oyster, Shrimp and Asparagus Kushikatsu ($2.50 each). Apart from all that deep-fried deliciousness, consider sharing the Chiritori Hotpan Beef ($18 for small, $34 for large) with a friend or two. The sizzling hotpan dish sees sliced beef and wagyu beef intestines (uh huh!) cooked over a bed of bean sprouts — amazing! Afterwards, you can opt to add the Cheese Curry Risotto ($7) into the pan to further soak up all that goodness.
Avg price: $30

I’m quite sure I’ll be back just for this. A sizzling hotpan of bean sprouts soaking up that spicy, rich broth was the perfect backdrop for all that beef! Consisting of beef slices and wagyu beef big intestines (how crazy is that), I was blown away by how shiok this entire dish was!

Their intestines aren’t like what you’d expect. There’s a thin layer of the usual intestine lining but attached is like a mound of rich, collogen-y goodness that’ll have you digging back in for more!

You can get curry cheese risotto ($7) to add into the broth afterwards. We didn’t try doing that but it’s something I’m definitively going to do the next time I’m back.

Kushikatsu Tanaka has made its foray out of Japan where they have 168 shops and the first Asian outlet outside of Japan is right here in Clark Quay! Specializing in Osaka-style fried skewers ($1-$2.50), these panko coated morsels will have you chugging down Jim Beam highballs all night long.

I’d definitely be back for their oyster, shrimp & asparagus kushikatsus ($2.50/each). They have other interesting fried items like cookies and cream too, which is basically a deep-fried Oreo (though that’s not really my thing). And the Chiritori Hotpan? Moaaaar please!

Here, you gotta work for your food. 😝 A fun aspect at Kushikatsu Tanaka is that many items have an element of DIY like this potato salad or their onigiri and takopachi.

Mash it up to the consistency you’d like and dig in. Tasty and tastes like how you’d expect it with little bacon bits and egg.

A frosty tall mug, very refreshing.
