YNG x Lennardy Mood Grill-C

2.Yakiniku-GO Collaboration Series: Lennard Yeong X Tetsuya Yoshida

Social media sensation Lennard Yeong has partnered with Yakiniku-Go for an exciting limited edition set menu that will ignite your cravings for meat. The Beef Bomb and Pork Bomb sets are slices of karubi beef and Duroc pork belly wrapped around a core of marinated soy garlic for an extra burst of umami. Meat lovers will prefer the Double Dragon set, with a choice of thick sliced beef short plate or Duroc pork belly in a diamond cut, elegantly wrapped around sliced zucchinis. Grill the zucchinis till slightly charred for a juicy, wok-hei crunch.

Order the meats ala carte, or as a set with the choice of maze gohan mixed with wagyu tallow or shio konbu rice, kimchi, and miso soup. For dipping sauces, the goma tare is a creamy sesame sauce that brings out a thicker flavour, while the yuzu koshu ponzu sauce is a refreshing citrus kick for a cleaner taste. We recommend mixing both sauces together for an ultra burst of flavour that goes with hand-in-hand with the marinated meats.

The Yakiniku-GO x Lennard Yeong set menu is available at all out outlets islandwide from 13 April to 31 July 2023

Tendon Kohaku

You can still take a gastronomical journey to Japan even if you’re not there physically! The famed Sakura ebi takes the spotlight in Kohaku Tendon’s spring seasonal menu, with the delicacy that is only found in Suruga Bay in Japan, and Taiwan. The Sakura ebi is prepared in two ways – soft-boiled and fried mixed with furikake. The soft boiled ebi was sweet and juicy to the bite, while the fried version was more savoury. Mix together with the Tokyo Curry Udon or the rice bowl Haru Sakura-Ebi Tendon, which results in a lovely and ssatisfying medley of texture and flavours! The sets also comes with fried tempura like baby corn, tiger ebi, another Sakura ebi patty, Hotaru-ika firefly squid, and a flowy onsen egg.
