The Latest Japanese Grill Concept by ZS Hospitality Group @ Yakimon 燒乜

Set at the popular 8 Lyndhurst Terrace, there is a brand new Japanese grill concept restaurant introduced by the ZS Hospitality Group called Yakimon. While it has an incredibly cool and cozy environment inspired by the Yakitori culture in ancient Japan, the restaurant serves a vast majority of skewers and grills that are delivered with a little Western elements featuring the innovative cooking skills.

Our starter, technically say the amuse bouche, is a chef-special lobster bisque with a creamy and rich flavor. Followed by a new style caprese in a glassware, it is made with a combination of beautiful elements including yuzu jelly, mini yogurt balls and deliciously sweet Japanese tomatoes.

On the menu, there are several vegetarian options and we tried a deep-fried tofu pocket stuffed with cheese and another deep-fried tofu in logs flavored with a much stronger garlic paste.

Coming to the signature items, the chicken leg is super juicy and tender whereas the chicken breast is flavored with spicy pepper, plum with shiso and wasabi respectively. My personal favourite is no doubt the batter-fried chicken breast; not only is it super crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside, the tartare sauce accompanies amazingly too!

If you like sukiyaki, you will enjoy the minced chicken stick served aside a raw egg yolk with sukiyaki sauce. But I would recommend the A5 wagyu beef skewers with wasabi foam, which melts wonderfully in my mouth; and the other sharing dish made with thin-sliced wagyu beef that is also well-served with an egg foam.

Last but not least, the king crab legs are grilled to perfection and serve with light and foamy lemon soya sauce. The chicken onigiri is definitely a must-have. Mixed in the piping hot stone-pot with a rich concentrated chicken soup, so hearty so good!

For desserts, I absolutely adore the black sesame panna cotta. It has the perfect creaminess served with a lightly sweetened matcha syrup. The matcha creme brulee is also made very delicate with crushed matcha cookies and a crunchy brulee surface; the Hokkaido milk roll is light and fluffy as well.
