For only S$68+ per pax, a variety of cold and hot appetisers, chicken, beef and seafood yakitori, seasonal produce, noodles and dessert are served to fill your hungry bellies and satiate your Japanese food cravings. They are all grilled over binchotan charcoal fire, a specialty charcoal treasured for its ability to burn at a higher temperature without odour, cooking foods with a subtler and more refined smokiness.
Experience a curated selection of yakitori indulgences such as the prized Wagyu Beef Platter which includes US wagyu striploin MB8/9, Australian wagyu striploin MB7/8, Japanese A5 wagyu or the Hokkaido Pork Platter, served from the jowl, collar, and loin.
Other meaty yakitori include the negima (chicken with leek), chigimo (chicken liver), kawa (crispy chicken skin), and indulgent foie gras. Its seafood skewers include the negima mekajiki (swordfish cubes), yaki sake (grilled salmon cubes), and shisamo, while vegetable yakitori such as shishito (Japanese sweet pepper), shiitake mushrooms, and asparagus are not to be missed as well. End the appetizing meal with a hearty bowl of tonkatsu ramen and dessert of the day for the complete Ryu Taro Yakitori Omakase Menu experience.
Enter the urban luxe world of IKO, an all-new Mod-Jap restaurant and bar along the vibrant Neil Road. Expect contemporary Japanese creations and mouth-watering Robata-grilled bites, as well as an exceptional collection of sake and Japanese-inspired cocktails, all accompanied by groovy music and good vibes.
IKO is an abbreviation for ‘let’s go’ in Japanese, while its emordnilap (a word that becomes a different word when read backwards) refers to the word okinami (OKI), meaning ‘offshore wave’ – a nod to Japanese influence on the restaurant. Paying homage to the unique word play, the restaurant features the iconic IKO logo in vivid neon, illuminating the ceiling and setting the mood for a night of luxury; while a striking nine-metre hand painted mural spans the length of the restaurant, depicting swirling ocean waves – OKI – that transform into four soaring cranes lifting upwards and into the horizon – symbolising an unforgettable experience at IKO.
“Taking inspiration from what I love about Japanese cuisine; beautiful and artistic presentation of Kaiseki dishes, the attention to detail of an omakase and intimate drinking culture of an izakaya, my team and I worked together to create a space where diners can immerse in the perfect setting while indulge in Japanese food and enjoying a tipple – the ultimate Mod-Jap dining experience.” Lambert Chen, Co-owner of IKO shares.
Singaporean Jeremmy Chiam, known for his signature European culinary flair and love for Japanese ingredients, helms the kitchen at IKO and has introduced a menu of trailblazing Mod-Jap creations. These beautiful dishes incorporate subtle hues of purple, pink and blue – a clever play on the brand colours.
The dinner menu is presented in six categories; Raw, Cold, Small, Robata, Rice and Noodles, and Sweet.
The restaurant also offers a compact lunch menu, comprising a selection of COLD and SMALL dishes along with ZOSUI; traditional Japanese rice soup served in clay pot.
Other than an exceptional menu of creative Mod-Jap dishes, IKO also offers an impressive collection of Japanese sake, wines, liqueur and cocktails served by friendly and knowledgeable staff.
