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.

Hot on the heels of the popular halal-certified FIX Cafe, The Food Explorer F&B Group has just released the newest addition to their brand of casual eateries. Here comes FIX Grill, a casual mediterranean grill concept.
Built on the same promise as FIX Cafe, FIX Grill offers “Original Handmade Goods” of the edible kind and sets itself apart with a few choice touches.
The kitchen’s attention to detail can be seen in its range of creative appetisers, each component carefully put together to achieve a harmony of flavours in each dish. One such appetiser is the Watermelon and Prawn Salad. The watermelon cubes in the salad are first compressed, concentrating and enhancing the sweetness of each morsel, before being topped with contrasting flavours of crumbled feta, crunchy almonds and poached prawns and finished with a honey lemon verbena dressing.
Another appetiser not to be missed is the Hokkaido Scallops on Quinoa. These plump scallops are sweet & juicy and lend a delicious flavour to the bed of quinoa and grilled corn it sits on, perfectly complemented with a homemade romesco sauce.
Coming with a group of friends? The Assorted FIX Grill Platter of Skewers makes a great dish for sharing. This is no ordinary platter of meat cubes, expect creative items like Greek Beef Keftedes skewers, Lamb Moussaka skewers, Chicken Tsukune Yakitori skewers and Homemade Prawn & Fish Cake skewers, all grilled to perfection and served with a delicious homemade pumpkin mash and potato crisps.
There is a good selection of mains with sufficient variety to suit any palate. Pasta lovers can choose between the vegetarian Primavera Pasta, Seafood Pasta in a light broth or a hearty Homemade Beef Lasagna.
Meat lovers will delight in the Bone-in Beef Shortribs, slow-cooked for 24 hours to achieve a succulent texture and delicious beefy flavour. Or the Slow-Roasted Half Chicken which is tender, juicy and served with a porcini cream sauce.
Seafood lovers have not been missed with a FIX Lobster Roll featuring chunks of meat from a whole lobster tail in a creamy mayonnaise in a buttery soft homemade brioche bun. The Pan-seared Salmon on Wild Rice also makes for a great kid-friendly dish.
A perfect accompaniment to the dishes from the grill, FIX Grill also offers a range of Handcrafted Sodas made from fresh fruits and herbs. Take your pick from Strawberry & Sweet Basil, Pineapple & Passionfruit, Ginger & Lime or Kiwi & Mint, all refreshing in taste and delightfully colourful.
