Welcome to Torikin 鶏金, where we bring the heart of Hakata, Japan, to the vibrant streets of Singapore. Our pride lies in our signature offering – Mizutaki, a traditional Japanese chicken and collagen hotpot renowned for its health benefits and exquisite taste. As the brainchild of our founder from Japan, Torikin marks our first venture in Singapore, embodying a passion for authentic Japanese culinary art.
A Cozy and Culturally Rich Ambiance
Nestled along Bukit Timah Road, our cozy establishment is a testament to Japanese craftsmanship and aesthetics. The space, though intimate, is ingeniously divided into several sections, including an alfresco area, a sushi counter, booth tables, and a semi-private room featuring horigotatsu – a traditional Japanese-style seating. The interior, adorned with clean-lined wood elements and Kanji calligraphy, radiates a sense of tranquility and homeliness, offering a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
A Menu that Celebrates Tradition and Innovation
Our menu is a celebration of Japanese culinary tradition, enhanced with innovative twists. Apart from our beloved Mizutaki, we offer a variety of dishes that cater to every palate. Our starters, ranging from Salted Squid with Cheese to Chicken Skin with Ponzu, set the stage for a flavorful journey. Our donburi selections, like the Oyako Don and Salmon & Salmon Roe Rice Bowl, offer hearty and satisfying one-dish meals.
In our Toubannyaki selection, the Avocado Okonomiyaki stands out as an exotic choice, but it's the Hakata Tonpei Yaki that has won the hearts of many – a perfect blend of soft cabbages and tender pork belly wrapped in a fluffy omelette, topped with a savory-sweet sauce. Our menu also features an array of chicken dishes, including the Oita Chicken Tempura and Grilled Chicken Wing, each prepared to perfection, highlighting the quality of our ingredients.
The Star Attraction: Hakata Mizutaki
The centerpiece of our culinary repertoire is the Hakata Mizutaki. Prepared with Sakura chicken, free of antibiotics and growth hormones, the broth is boiled over six hours, ensuring that the collagen is thoroughly infused into the slightly sticky, milky-white soup. This dish not only delights the taste buds but also offers the nourishing benefits of collagen. The experience is further enhanced by our homemade ponzu sauce, adding a tangy contrast to the rich flavors of the hotpot.
