Kabuke: Hidden Gem in Telok Ayer Serving Exquiste Contemporary Japanese Cuisine



Dislike to dine in crowded places? Fighting hard to avoid the queue? Looking for a private place to chill with your families and friends? Love sakes and Japanese food? If yes, you are in for a serious treat!

Tucked in a corner along Telok Ayer street hides a quiet secluded restaurant that serves a variety of exquisite contemporary Japanese eats at an affordable price. On top of that, this hidden gem also offers an extensive range of sake to pair with their food. If you are totally clueless about sakes, you don’t have to worry at all. Kabuke has thoughtfully penned down all the relevant details of each sake in their menu. 

Honestly speaking, this is one place I would love to visit again because the food left a very strong and good impression on me! You’ll know it eventually when you head down to Kabuke!

Are you drooling? I guess you will if you're having this table full of mouth-watering Japanese dishes! It’s so hard to pick a favourite because I really liked all of them. Definitely the perfect place to spend with your friends/colleagues after a long stressful day of work! You might want to have your TGIF here!

Salmon Bruschetta 
Kick-starting the meal with a seemingly simple Salmon Bruschetta, but blew our minds away. Salmon was fresh and well-mixed with Crème Fraiche – sweet and sour combination was good! 

Shiso Tempura with Hotate Tartare
The truffle smell already hit my nose before this was served onto my table. Scallops were well-seasoned and well-cooked. How to eat this? Finish it with one mouth! Shiok! 

Tuna Tataki
The tuna was well-marinated and very tender. Just gently bite it and it melts in the mouth. Paired with the aromatic garlic chips, I can easily finish the entire plate all by myself!

Takoyaki Fries
Can I not share this? The Takoyaki Fries are so addictive that once you start eating, you literally can’t stop. I also liked the bits of octopus that can be found in the fries. 

Crispy Goma Wings
Another dish that I’m not willing to share! The wings were crispy and very well-marinated! Dip it into the wasabi (with a subtle yuzu aroma) for maximum pleasure! 

Baby Corn
Corn-verter! Did you get my pun? For people who doesn’t really like corn, you’ll fall in love once trying this dish! No joke, especially with the combination of pork floss and siracha mayo on the corn! 

Miso Pork
Thank God the pork wasn’t too fatty! Sauce really complemented the pork very well! 

Nasu Dengaku
The egg-plant was well-baked to achieve a soft and melty texture. It was also well-seasoned and very flavourful! 

Mini Beef Bowl
Before you start on this mouth-watering bowl, break the runny egg and mixed the entire bowl. The beef was well-cooked, very tender and juicy. Again, the garlic chips are so damn good, complemented the beef so well!

Kabuke Cheese Platter & Sake Flight
If you are a cheese/sake-lover, you need to order this! Different flavoured cheese to pair with different sakes!

  1. If you can't stand crowd then for sure get to venues in NYC here early to start off your night. Our group did this just a few days ago and quaffed down some tasty beers and ciders before making our escape to further escapades in the city.
