The Hitsuji Club

Flanked by bars and karaoke joints, Hitsuji Club is a low-key gem located along the bustling streets of Boat Quay. A cozy and intimate space which seats 22 guests, the place specializes in the hard-to-find and cutely named Hokkaido barbecue specialty jingisukan (named after Mongolian conqueror Genghis Khan—we are told it has something to do with the hat-shaped grills the dish is cooked on). Whereas much of Japanese cuisine is famous for its seafood and wagyu beef, the focus here is on the low-cholesterol option of lamb. Cuts are freshly imported from Australia and New Zealand, from animals as young as four to six months old.The drink menu includes wine bottles such as the Les Sauvages Vermentino from Australia ($120), and Kenzo Estate Rindo ($310) from California, both sold in limited quantities worldwide.
