Nanbantei Lunch Sets

Yakitori Don Set (S$14)
Nanbantei has been around for a long, long time, easily more than 20 years. Ironically I tried it in Tokyo first before I did so in Singapore. Food here is generally quite decent and satisfying.

For lunch, you can get some very affordable set deals too. This is the Yakitori Don Set (S$14), which is about four grilled items on rice, accompanied by a bowl of udon, pickles and appetiser. I love the bacon-wrapped stuff (whether okra or asparagus).


Yakitori Bento (S$13)
The Yakitori Bento (S$13) comes with rice topped with stewed mushroom, dried seaweed and minced meat. You get five skewers of grilled goodies.



You can sit at the bar counter and watch your food being grilled
Nanbantei is not very big, but it sure looks cosy and almost ancient. You can sit at the bar counter and watch your food being grilled by the chefs. There is seating all around the perimeter of the restaurant and even an extension at the back.

The exhaust hood is pretty strong, so you don't smell too heavily like yakitori yourself after eating here. But you will still. A little. Hey, it's a tiny space with all those fumes!

Check out the rest of their lunch set bentos here. They have gyu tan, unajyu, tonkatsu, gindara teriyaki, saba and salmon shioyaki sets. Green tea is free.

We found the lunch bentos very similar to that of Kushigin's. We were wondering who copied whom. Only upon leaving the restaurant, we saw that it is affiliated with Kushigin indeed.

  2. Oh the yakitori don looks right up my alley (yakitori + rice = what's not to like?) and I'm with you on anything bacon-wrapped, really. :D

  3. nice! i always tried their dinner set meals only. There used to be two handsome chefs doing the yakitori, one singaporean and one japanese. But now, both of them are not around anymore and the yakitori didn't taste as good! Maybe because there are no more sight seeing for me :P

  4. Dirtystall: Yeah I want to go again too!

    Kenny: bacon rules!

    MissTamChiak: haha, no more eye candy? Maybe they went over to Kushigin. Nanbantei chefs have been spotted there before...so I hear.
