‼️Best karaage in town?!?! SKOSH at NAFA Campus along Bencoolen Street serves up dishes with a Japanese touch and to be honest I was pretty pleasantly surprised by their dishes! The fusion aspects are prominent but I like that they did not go overboard with it. ✨ Mentaiko Tater Tots ✨ Truffle Shoyu Karaage ✨ Okonomi Rosti ✨ Chicken and Waffles ✨ Hojicha Brownie with Ice Cream ✨ Sea Salt Hot Chocolate ✨ Uji Matcha Latte My top picks are the Truffle Shoyu Karaage and the Okonomi Rosti 🤩 The unassuming karaage kept me sooo distracted throughout the meal because I kept eyeing it to make sure there were still enough to go round 🤭 Savoury, juicy chunks of chicken with a hint of sweetness at the end. A party pleaser. I’m a fan of both rosti and okonomiyaki and SKOSH serves the best of both worlds in a single dish! Imagine this: shredded potatoes pan fried till crisp, topped with ingredients found in okonomiyaki such as bonito flakes and sweet sauce. The result is a tangy and hearty combination that will satiate any souls out there. Do check out SKOSH if you’re in the vicinity — whether it’s for a meal or just to have a drink with friends, they have something for everyone. Be sure to order their karaage! #japanesefusion #sgcafe #sgfoodie
