How about taking a stroll in the park before digging into some Smoky Yakitori? Though, this isn’t our first time at Toriyard, this round we are here for Toriyard New Revamped Menu.
Toriyard is situated at the heart of Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, well surrounded by greenery and joggers. It possesses the vibes of a cottage restaurant in the woods! With the serenity of the park, Diners are able to get their well-deserved meals without much disturbances. Choice of dining indoors with air-conditioned glass doors (We still get to catch a good view outside) or the vibrant sheltered outdoors are available (even if it rains, we are all covered.). Take your pick!
Yakitori (Japanese: 焼き鳥) is a Japanese type of skewered chicken.
Toriyard’s meats are imported from Japan and grilled on the spot at the open-concept grill station. Their appetizing menu is specially designed by Tokyo native Chef Hasegawa Isao with 40 years of culinary experience. It feels like dining in a garden with fine Japanese food. Remarkable.
Their menu includes the specialty; Classic tori (Chicken) skewers, grilled beef, pork, seafood and vegetables.
Appetizers – deep fried chicken ball with perilla leaf and Onsen Tamago Cocktail. You might want to start your meals with these signature dishes.
Toriyard New Revamped Menu
In addition to their all-time favourite Yakitori, they have curated new dishes for more diverse meal selections;
Salmon Skin Salad – Signature Fish Skin Salad (S$ 14)
A Refreshing Starter with our must-eat crispy Fish Skin.
Wagyu Sumiyaki – Charcoal Grilled Wagyu (S$ 20)
Tender Wagyu, grilled perfectly. Great on its own.
Okura (V) – Lady Finger (S$2.50)
Lady Fingers on skewers! Sea-salt flavored greens with a crunchy texture! Certainly an eye-opener for us.
We are impressed it could be cooked this way! Fresh Lady Fingers are used to attain the unique texture and taste. We are glad they did it.
Buta Karamiso Zousui – Spicy Pork Belly Porridge (S$ 13)
Next, for Mains, The Spicy Pork Belly Porridge is in our top list and value for money as well. Pork Belly are thinly sliced to perfection and coupled with the fine Japanese Rice immersed in rich spiced broth. It is not too spicy in our opinion. Hence, definitely suitable for those with low tolerance to spicy food. A sprinkle of seaweed shreds add a tad of saltiness to the soup therefore enhances the aroma. Perhaps, cracking an egg to this soupy dish will be marvelous!
Furthermore, besides dinner, they do serve affordable set lunches too.
Ira Maruyaki – Grilled Hokkaido giant squid with ginger and lemon (S$ 22)
Chewy whole squid with a dash of acidity.
Ten Don Set (S$ 14) NEW!
Crispy Prawn, eggplant, sweet potato and shitake mushroom. Served with steamed rice.
Soba Shioyaki Set – Grilled Mackeral (S$ 16)
Served with Soup, Salad and Japanese Pickles
Unagi Don – Grilled Eel Rice (S$23)
In conclusion, either rain or shine, there will be something suitable for everyone’s palate for any meal of the day on Toriyard New Revamped Menu.
