Thinking about making a Bincho booking?
Made to look like a yakitori house so common in Japan, Bincho provides a setting that’s unlike any other in Singapore. The Tiong Bahru restaurant is found in the back of Hua Bee, a lively 70-year-old kopitiam (traditional coffee shop) and mee pok stall during the day, which makes for a bit of confusion but only adds to the authentic experience, making diners feel as if they’re dining somewhere very exclusive, just like in a small alleyway bar in Japan. The restaurant was once a full-time kopitiam, and still retains traditional touches including marble tables and old wooden chairs – come by to take a glimpse into the the past when dining at this local legend.
Bincho’s menus change frequently, which is a good sign that the kitchen puts emphasis on freshness. The best way to enjoy a true Bincho dining experience is to order a set menu. The YamaSachi set for two, for example, is a great option, and includes option such as fugu skin nikogori with ankimo tofu, salad sticks with Bincho’s signature miso paste, eight types of mushroom with chicken soup nabe, ramen and dessert. Best of all? The prices are fair and reasonable, even for so much food! Experience Bincho on Moh Guan Terrace by stopping by its Tiong Bahru premises at Hua Bee – book ahead to ensure your table.
