Bincho at Min Jiang delivers the same authentic Japanese yakitori experience to Dempsey Road, in a contemporary industrial-chic hideaway at Dempsey Road. Like its flagship venue at Tiong Bahru, the restaurant is tucked away behind decades-old Cantonese restaurant, Min Jiang by Goodwood Park Hotel.
Step through the hidden entrance amidst beautiful greenery and treat yourself to a cosy, intimate dining experience – starting with its discrete location; an unassuming entrance via a dark black door with frosted glass panels; a charming vaulted roof; copper-hued interiors; with a Japanese folk playlist providing background chatter.
The restaurant offers the same yakitori selection as its outpost in Tiong Bahru, as well as a selection of luxurious offerings and seasonal items, only available at Bincho at Min Jiang.
Set in the lush flora of Dempsey Hill, the 40-seater restaurant occupies the 1000 square foot space of the monochrome one-story colonial building. Situated away from the main cluster, the restaurant provides a tranquil escape away from the bustling lifestyle and dining enclave of Dempsey, complete with a beautiful green picturesque backdrop.
Following his success at running Bincho at Hua Bee, the new Bincho at Min Jiang will be helmed by Executive Chef Asai Masashi, who hails from the Hyōgo Prefecture in Japan. Formerly of the prestigious Abeno Tsuji Culinary Institute, Asai-san spent thirteen years of his career refining his skills at various dining destinations in Hyōgo, Osaka, and Kyoto.
Growing up in the Hyōgo Prefecture, surrounded by pristine produce from the land and sea, Asai-san developed an appreciation for exquisite, seasonal ingredients from a young age. Holding these ingredients in high regard, he thoughtfully curates his menu according to the 24 micro seasons in the Japanese calendar, showcasing the best ingredients each season has to offer.
With more than 30 years of experience under his belt, Chef Asai Masashi understands the importance of precision execution over simple ingredients and continues to masterfully shares his philosophy of Japanese grilling to Bincho at Min Jiang.
True to the restaurant’s name ‘Bincho’, synonymous to the famed Japanese white charcoal Bincho-tan, the restaurant offers a selection of Yakitori grilled to perfection over an open fire. The signature Yakitori Platter features various part of the chicken, where no protein is left out, from the chicken thigh, breast, neck, wing, skin to its tail, heart, liver, gizzard, and cocks comb.
Another note-worthy dish Chef Asai created for the new restaurant is the Uni Shabu Shabu, featuring a luxurious ‘Uni broth’ made from fresh Sea Urchin. The creamy, cloudy dashi-based broth boasts a light orange colour and a distinct aromatic fragrance. Originated first in Osaka, Japan, the Uni Shabu Shabu set features the broth served in a personal sized hot-pot, a spread of air-flown seasonal seafood items (eg Oyster, Crab, Abalone, Prawn), seasonal vegetables and sashimi-grade Sea Urchin.
Guests may enjoy the fresh seafood shabu-shabu style over the simmering broth. To complete the dish, the server uses remaining soup broth in the hotpot to prepare an umami-rich Uni Porridge using Yumepirika rice, spring onions and other condiments like kizami nori (seaweed) and shichimi (seven-spiced powder). The rich, creamy and comforting Japanese porridge is topped with fresh uni.
On Bincho’s grilled menu is Yasai Maki (translated as Vegetable Rolls), a type of meat rolls featuring thinly sliced pork or beef, wrapped around seasonal vegetables, skewered and grilled. The range of Yasai Maki features an extensive list of seasonally available vegetables like Japanese long yam, young corn and mushroom amongst others. Grilled over the Bincho-tan charcoal, these skewers offer a wonderful mix of textures and flavors, with each meat roll paired with its own complementing sauce.
