Shirokane Tori-Tama, Robertson Walk

We finally made our way to Shirokane Tori-Tama (#01-02 Robertson Walk, 11 Unity Street, tel : +65 6836 5680), an outpost of the Tori-Tama Group which originates from Tokyo. And yes, these guys who do yakitori in the true sense of the word are grilled chicken specialist. There's a good variety of chicken parts to choose from, more than a few of which I never even knew existed or had names.

I'll try to keep this short and just mention some items of interest since it was all good. 

toritama don 

maruhatsu - whole heart
Maruhatsu was a first time for us since prior to this, we've only ever had hatsu.

hatsu - heart

saezuri - windpipe
Not much taste from the windpipe, but excellent textures.

otafuku - could be esophagus, lymph nodes or meat from side of the neck
The otafuku was fatty and flavourful, I gathered that the name represented those few parts of the chicken so it could be either the neck or sweetbread from the chicken. But honestly, I couldn't really tell what part it was.

chigimo - liver

tebamoto - drum stick

kanmuri - cockscomb/crown

inariyaki with raclette cheese

jaga - baby potatoes

gyutan - ox tongue

lamu - lamb
There weren't much non-chicken meat options but gyutan and lamb were a couple of them. Their lamb was pretty gamey, fatty and delicious. For those that would enjoy this particular flavour like we did, this skewer was kickass tasty. And expensive too at $12 a stick.
