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.

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.

Nature reserves are protected areas of rich biodiversity that are representative sites of key indigenous ecosystems. To safeguard the native flora and fauna in these areas, there are special restrictions on the activities that can be carried out.
As part of a holistic conservation approach, some nature parks have been established on the margins of the Nature Reserves to act as green buffers.
The National Parks Board (NParks) has unveiled plans for a new 67-hectare Rifle Range Nature Park, which will serve as the southern buffer park for Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and is expected to be completed in 2020
The 67-hectare Rifle Range Nature Park is located at the southern end of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. As a buffer park, Rifle Range Nature Park will help to reduce visitorship pressure on Bukit Timah Nature Reserve by providing interesting alternative venues for the public to enjoy nature-related activities.
Being next to the nature reserve, Rifle Range Nature Park provides complementary forest habitat for biodiversity from Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Surveys indicate that native flora species growing in the nature reserve can be seen at the fringe of the nature park. Visitors may be able to chance upon native fauna species such as the Sunda Pangolin (Manis javanica) and Horsfield’s Flying Squirrel (Lomys horsfieldii). Native crabs, frogs, fishes and snakes can also be seen in the slow-flowing sandy streams.
Visitors will be able to experience the canopies of a regenerating secondary forest through a Sky Garden. It is an elevated walkway that provides a seamless experience from Beauty World to the Sin Seng Quarry.
The former Sin Seng Quarry will be sensitively enhanced to support the rich biodiversity in the area. The quarry was once one of the deepest quarries in Singapore (55 metres at its deepest point), but has since been backfilled. It will be transformed into a freshwater habitat with alook-out point for visitors to appreciate marsh birds.
Hiking trails with varying levels of difficulty will also be added to give visitors a chance to learn more about the history of quarrying in Singapore and the heritage highlights within the site.
Aerial rope bridges across Rifle Range Road will be provided to allow animals to move safely between Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Rifle Range Nature Park. The first such bridges in Singapore, they aim to restore the ecological connection between the two forest habitats.
