Kushigin has nice lunch sets!

On my way to Noodle House Ken's today, I got distracted by Kushigin which I have been meaning to try. They have some very reasonable lunch sets (various combinations starting from S$10 for kushi age or maguro tataki to S$18 for unajyu).

Since it's a yakitori joint, I had to try some of its grilled goodies. I chose the Yakitori-don and Inaniwa Udon set (S$13). Lots of pickles to go with the rice and an appetiser of sliced lady's fingers/okra in some sticky-gooey fermented soybean-mountain yam concoction, topped with shredded bonito. A bite of that and a slurp of the noodles - bliss! The udon was nicely done, soft but with tensile bounce, in comforting dashi stock with slice of sweet beancurd and wakame (seaweed). Even the spring onions tasted good.

And the yakitori? Wonderful! There was bacon-wrapped okra, quail's eggs, chicken with leek, and tsukune (grilled chicken meatballs - at least I think they were chicken). Each offered a different taste but all were well-seasoned and grilled to aromatic perfection. The rice too, was good quality, proper Japanese short-grain rice - unlike what I got at Akashi.

I'd love to come back and try the grilled eel or salmon. Prices look pretty reasonable for a la carte too. If not mistaken, could be less pricey than Wahiro's sister joint Kushiyaki. I need to try Kazu too...someday.

    Indeed, you need to try Kazu =D
    Goodness knows how much time (and money =S) I've spent a Kazu... I need to find a good yakitori joint in Manhattan!

  2. so they've been pretty consistent in the food! And I think the price is very reasonable with such generous portions! Yummmm.. I will go there again. Finally found a good eat at that area.
