Kind Of Japanese

Kind Of Japanese

Featuring Bincho at Hua Bee, Lokkee, Yoshinoya (Bugis Junction)

Tung Lok Group modernised and ‘upgraded’ Lao Beijing into Lokkee. We didn’t try the gimmicky fusion dishes. The traditional Chinese dishes are good, although nothing to scream home about. Service is proactive. This is the most high-end restaurant at Plaza Singapura, although it’s not as grand in terms of either food or décor as its counterparts at Takashimaya, Paragon, or ION. But that’s more in character with this shopping mall. So, you would not cross town just to come here to eat.

Review of the new outlet at Dempsey. Hard to find, as it is tucked behind the Min Jian @ Dempsey restaurant, but by no means is Binsho a bin for the food show at Min Jiang! Compared to the original at Tiong Bahru, this branch has more cooked dishes. We had the uni shabu shabu - extremely yummy! The yakitori dishes are delish, more ‘refined’ than at other superior yakitori places. Great choices of Japanese whiskey and sake. Cocktails are also unusual, although the soursop margarita is a bit too sweet. Attentive, personal service. The downsides? It is pricey - unless you stick to the lunch sets, you would end up paying $130 a head. The day we visited, the aircon was not working well so it was kind of uncomfortable.

Clean, fast, and reasonably-priced (especially with Entertainer offer), otherwise absolutely nothing to write home about. The food is not vad but not that flavourful. An alternative to aircon food courts, except here you don’t hsve to hunt for a seat. No or Ya?

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
