16th November 2023

Best Japanese yakiniku outlets in Singapore

It is a truth well-acknowledged that yakiniku has earned a special place in Singaporeans’ hearts in recent years. As a yakiniku fan, learning that new restaurants offering cheaper yakiniku alternatives are springing up across Singapore is incredible news to me. If you’re on the hunt for yakiniku like me, here’s a list of the best yakiniku places in Singapore for you to satisfy your Japanese BBQ cravings. 

1. Yakiniku Go


Located conveniently across the island at six outlets, Yakiniku Go boasts value-for-money options for its yakiniku. We recommend trying their signature Yakiniku-GO Set (from $15.80++) which has three popular cuts of beef: Beef Short Plate, Beef Ribeye Steak and Beef Tongue, accompanied by rice and soup. We were impressed by the four sauces that you get with any of the grilled meat. These four sauces were created in-house by Yakiniku-GO’s very own Japanese head chef: House Special Yakiniku Tare, Spicy Yakiniku Tare, Miso Tare, and Negi Shio Tare!

2. 59Hutong Yakiniku


59Hutong Yakiniku is where it’s at if you want elevated Japanese barbecue. The collaboration between local start-up 59 Restaurant and Taipei’s leading yakiniku franchise, Hutong, is all about offering diners a Taiwanese-fusion yakiniku experience—think premium Wagyu beef cuts, exclusively imported seafood, Taiwanese dishes, and top-tier hospitality. Located along Boat Quay, this is a convenient pick for meals with the fam and friends after work or on the weekends.

They offer an impressive selection of Wagyu here, from Japanese A5 cuts to Australian Wagyu. Additionally, they also have premium cuts of US Prime Angus beef. Fans of offcuts and offal will also be pleased to know that 59Hutong Yakiniku serves up an Australian Wagyu Tongue Prosperity Bag, which comprises beef tongue expertly cut and wrapped around scallions and onions. Lightly grill this and be wowed as it melts in your mouth. For something warm and hearty, get their Japanese A5 Wagyu Chuck Top Blade Sukiyaki, where tender Wagyu beef is paired with a sweet miso-based soup. 59Hutong Yakiniku has also launched a range of new side dishes to complement your BBQ, so definitely don’t skip ordering these.
