Yokai, a speakeasy Japanese-inspired restaurant & bar in TTDI. Whether you are here just for a sip of cocktail, to indulge into specially crafted delicacies by the chef, or both, Yokai is an ideal place to be.
Modern, contemporary interior, dimly lighted but doesn’t fall short in style. Love the cool neon light display, and stylishly designed cocktail bar counter. You can choose to sit at the teppanyaki counter, high tables, bar counter or cocktail lounge area. Private rooms are available too for larger groups, where you get to throw a mini birthday party, celebrations or gathering with friends and family.
We were seated at the teppanyaki counter, where we get to watch chef in action.
First dish was the signature sando, with serving style that is worth having your camera ready to capture the dramatic ” opening” moments. Trio Sando –
Wagyu Katsu Sando
Chicken Katsu Sando
and Oxtail Sando.
Our top favorite is Oxtail Sando – a secret, off menu dish. Recommended to try a set if you are in Yokai TTDI.
Had a bowl of miso soup while chef preparing our teppanyaki.
For Teppanyaki, you can have Miyazaki A5 (120gm), Wagyu MB9, Angus Tenderloin (150gm), Chicken (200gm), Salmon (200gm), Seafood (200gm). We opted for Wagyu MB9 and Seafood Teppanyaki.
Love the Seafood Platter that put together scallops, prawns, and squid, finished off with shio teriyaki sauce infused with truffle oil, finish off with butter.
More meat to go – Wagyu Satay. Pretty interesting.
For more substantial meal, you can have mains like Squid Ink Seafood Pasta, MB9 Wagyu Pasta, Garlic Fried Rice, Buntut Goreng Fried Rice, Crispy Chicken Fried Rice. Consider trying out the MB9 Wagyu Pasta – rich, creamy sauce thickly coated to strands of pasta, topped with tobiko and seaweed. Nice, but perhaps could go lighter with the salt level.
Miso Glaze Beef Ribs, last main course for our dinner. A dish that goes through hours of braise and bake process to achieve juicy, tender bites of meats. Portion is hearty, suitable to share among two persons if you are ordering other dishes.
We then adjourned to the bar area and sampled Yokai signature cocktail – YES -SER. A concoction of premium whisky mixed with Agave, Fernet Branca, Apple Cider, served in Smokey Dome.
If you like vodka based cocktail, try the Say Cheese San that put together vodka, orange marmalade, orange puree, bitter, finished off with cheesecake foam.
