An exciting new addition to Singapore’s night scene, Chikin (meaning “chicken” in colloquial Japanese) is a contemporary Yakitori-bar concept that offers an array of Japanese skewers, small plates and a delectable spectrum of house-infused cocktails.
The second and newest venue by lifestyle group Coterie Dining Concepts, Chikin was conceived with the aim of amping up the Yakitori experience through a package of great food, flavourful, tipples and a buzzing trendy bar setting.
Housed within a conservation shophouse at the up-and-coming Bukit Pasoh enclave, Chikin pays tongue in cheek tribute to Japanese popular culture and consumerism both with its out of the box characterisation of traditional Yakitori and cocktails , and with its affordability.
Boldly defying the traditionally premium price points of its offerings, Chikin believes that delicious Yakitori and well crafted cocktails can and should be enjoyed without breaking the bank.
On the ground floor of this three-storey Yakitori bar is where a long bar and open kitchen sits, guests are greeted with wall-to-ceiling murals sprinkled with iconic Pop Art symbols that are enlivened with neon lights and energetic graphics.
Through a climb up the stairway, the bar opens up to a lounge-like space in a dim-lit dining hall catered for cosy sit-down dining and for larger groups.
Over at the third floor, CHIKIN holds a private room space dedicated for functions and small group gatherings. Access to the private party room is by invitation or reservation only.
At Chikin, the authenticity and art of the Yakitori is preserved as cuisine-trained chefs serve up a mouth-watering selection of skewers and small plates. As its name suggests, the menu carries as many parts of the chicken as you can name: thigh, wing, heart, gizzard, tail, windpipe, neck,with other Kushiyaki (meat and vegetable) options grilled to a smoky perfection over Binchotan, a high quality Japanese charcoal.
Conceptualized by award-winning bartender Sam Wong, Chikin’s drinks menu boasts a bevy of up to 20 different cocktails, with a majority of 15 being house-made signature cocktail infusions. Infused over a period of three to four days, each spirit is expertly formulated with various ingredients to deliver a spectrum of subtle to profound flavour profiles. Just prior to serving, Chikin’s bartenders top the infusions off with carefully crafted ingredients to enhance and balance the cocktails.
The Downtown Line 3 (DTL3) will open on 21 October 2017, making it the longest underground and driverless MRT line in Singapore, surpassing the 35.7km Circle Line (CCL). The completed DTL which will be 42km long will facilitate direct travel from the north-western and eastern areas of the island to the Central Business District (CBD) and Marina Bay areas, providing greater connectivity to residential, industrial and lifestyle enclaves.
DTL1 with six stations from Chinatown to Bugis opened on 22 December 2013 and DTL2 with 12 stations from Bukit Panjang to Rochor opened on 27 December 2015. The DTL3 Extension from Expo to Sungei Bedok, an additional 2.2km, will open in 2024.
The 21-kilometre long DTL3 comprises 16 stations and is the longest stretch of the Downtown Line to be opened. DTL3 includes three interchange stations at MacPherson, Tampines, and Expo. The MacPherson interchange station links DTL3 to the CCL, while the latter two stations connect the line to the East-West Line (EWL), providing commuters greater accessibility to the rest of the island and significantly shortening their travelling time. There are eight Civil Defence shelters on DTL3, namely Geylang Bahru, Bedok North, Bedok Reservoir, Tampines West, Tampines, Tampines East, Upper Changi and Expo.
The first 10 stations from Fort Canning to Bedok North have achieved their Temporary Occupation Permit status while final fitting out works are currently in progress at the last six stations.
