I ordered my all-timed favourite : Yaktori Bento ๐Ÿฑ set @ $15.50, and additional green tea @ $1.50. Exclude GST.

Whatโ€™s so good ๐Ÿ˜Š?

Established in 1983, probably the longest and one of the oldest-running of Japanese Yakitori restaurants in Singapore ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ.

Itโ€™s been their 30 Years of Authentic Japanese Yakitori @ Far East Plaza, their flagship restaurant. Another one @ Chinatown Point Mall...

Similarly, It was exactly 3 decades ago... then my lovely & beautiful ex-girlfriend brought me here to enjoy real Japanese cuisine... certainly brought back many fond memories of togetherness of yesteryears... ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Well, itโ€™s just pure memories as fate do us good ! ... ๐Ÿ˜“

Indeed, an eye opening for me to the intricate, beauty & culinary of Japanese ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต cuisine ... ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿข๐Ÿก๐Ÿฆช๐Ÿœ๐ŸฅŸ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฅซ... from Sushi, Sashimi, California roll, Ramen, Udon, Tempura to Yakitori ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

As I had made prior reservation to the restaurant @ 1:30pm, for just myself alone ... to savoury this Yaktori Bento ๐Ÿฑ !

I had chosen the front seat where U can see the Yakitori Chef ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ in action at their grill, as they BBQ the skewers with great passion, occasionally sprinkle some light salt over the food b4 dipping into their homemade sauces prior to serving customers ... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

This simple art of cooking with the finest ingredients over an open flame is evident from meats tsukune (chicken meatballs), which are nicely charred on the outside, while its insides explode with great fragrance & flavour โœ….

My set B comprises :

1. Asparagus wrapped with pork meat slices in wooden skewer.

2. Chicken with leek in wooden skewer.

3. Chicken meat balls ๐ŸŽฑ in wooden skewer.

4. Pork seasoned with garlics ๐Ÿง„ in wooden skewer.

5. Shiitake mushrooms ๐Ÿ„ in wooden skewer.

6. Japanese Rice ๐Ÿš w/ seaweed and to blend w/ sweeten minced pork & braised mushroom ๐Ÿ„

Garnished with finely cut cabbage ๐Ÿฅฌ ; cut slices of radish and carrot ๐Ÿฅ• + preserved slices of cucumber ๐Ÿฅ’ + sliver foil cup of their Japanese authentic soya bean paste (my favourite - salted and tasty) ... got 2 extra toppings servings ๐Ÿคฃ.

All BBQ cooked well and well marinated with charred burnt at good sides, giving U that kind of smokey feeling, with juiciness oozes out, flavourfully and tastefully carries out well ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ โญ๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘

Sipping the miso soup w/ tofu + seaweed : simply tasted great too ! And finishing off with the brewing Green Tea ๐Ÿต for great digestion ! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฉ

As Always ... Yaktori Bento ๐Ÿฑ... Yummily ๐Ÿ˜‹ Great ๐Ÿ‘!
