It's not easy to find a good and authentic halal Japanese restaurant in Singapore but it's even harder to find halal yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) ? Whenever we go on trips to Japan and savour delicious yakiniku, our only wish is that we can have them back home too.

In case you're wondering, Wakuwaku is opened by the same folks who brought you Fatpapas Burgers and Shakes - Sheikh Haikel and Bernie Tay. If you've been to Fatpapas, you'd know that their juicy burgers are to die for. So, you can probably expect the same quality from Wakuwaku!

Now let us introduce you to Wakuwaku's scrumptious offerings. They haven't put up their menu online yet and not much information has been released but we do know that you can get definitely get your hands on their Beef Platter which consists of different cuts of meat.

If you're an expert in Japanese cuisine, you'd be delighted to know that they serve jo-karubi (boneless short rib) - one of the most popular cuts of wagyu. It's known to have more marbling and it's very juicy and rich in flavour.

For the adventurous foodies, here's your chance to try a Japanese delicacy called gyutan or beef tongue. This particular cut is thinly sliced and cooks quickly. It might have a slightly chewier texture than regular cuts of wagyu but when else can you get to try this northern Japanese specialty??

Of course, as with any yakiniku places, you're expected to grill the meats yourself. There's nothing more exciting than the sizzling sound of barbecue and the smell that engulfs the whole room. After that's done, all that's left to do is to savour the grilled meat and enjoy that melt-in-your-mouth goodness ?

Besides grilled meat, Wakuwaku also serves a selection of donburi (Japanese rice bowl) such as kaarage chicken and beef which comes with miso soup, onsen egg and assorted side dishes. They also have miso ramen too! Sounds perfect to go with your grilled meats ?

So, if you've been craving a taste of authentic yakiniku right here in Singapore, there's no other place to go than Wakuwaku Yakiniku. But do note that you'd have to make a reservation if you're visiting from Mondays to Thursdays.
