En Yakiniku @ Middle Road (Bugis) - New Japanese Yakiniku & Sake Bar Offering An Authentic Japanese BBQ Experience


Many yakiniku restaurants have opened around Singapore in recent months offering Japanese BBQ experience, ranging from affordable selections at coffeeshops to premium and rare meat cuts at full-service restaurants. En Yakiniku is one of the latest yakiniku concepts to be opened in Bugis. It takes over the now-defunct Captain K Seafood Tower.


While waiting for the rest of the group to arrive, we started with some snacks to munch on. We had the Grilled Dried Thread-Sail Filefish ($15.40), Grilled Dried Pufferfish ($15.40) and Deep-fried Sweet Shrimp ($5.40).

Grilled Dried Thread-Sail Filefish and Grilled Dried Pufferfish 4/5

Deep-fried Sweet Shrimp 4/5

The delightful snacks can double up as bar bites to complement the drinks.

Yakitori 3.5/5

Chawanmushi 4.2/5

If you don't have the patience to wait for the meat to be cooked or just want a quick meal, there are several cooked items on the menu, such as Yakitori ($12), Donburi and Chawanmushi ($3.40)


Prime Short Rib, Beef Chuck, Oyster Blade 4.2/5

Beef lovers can look forward to a good variety of cuts at En Yakinkiu. We started with three types of cuts, starting with the US Prime Short Rib ($28.90), US Beef Chuck ($17.90) and Oyster Blade ($17.90).


A4 Wagyu Ribeye, A4 Wagyu Striploin 4.5/5

There are premium cuts, such as the Miyazaki A4 Wagyu Ribeye ($54.90) and Miyazaki A4 Wagyu Striploin ($54.90), for their beautiful marbling, giving it the melt-in-the-mouth texture.

Gyu Tan 4.2/5

The more adventurous can go for the Gyu Tan ($21.90), which has a delightful crunchy texture once grilled.

Chestnut-fed Duroc Pork Belly 4/5

Spanish Pork Jowl 4/5

You need not worry if you are a non-beef eater. The Chestnut-fed Duroc Pork Belly ($15.90) and Spanish Pork Jowl ($15.90) are excellent options that are as satisfying as the beef cuts. In addition, the pork oil from the grilling emits a fragrant aroma enhancing the enjoyment.


Tiger Prawn 4.2/5

We even had Tiger Prawn ($22) from the seafood selection to complete the yakiniku experience at En Yakiniku.

Overall, I enjoyed the food at the En Yakiniku. The pricing and the quality of meats and seafood served it is reasonable. Some may argue that you can find cheaper options. I agree but compare the quality or how thinly these places sliced their meats.
