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.
