Located at 4 Haji Lane, Panko is a new Japanese Kushikatsu restaurant by the Unlisted Collection who is behind other popular dining establishments including Burnt Ends, Cheek by Jowl, Salted & Hung and The Market Grill.
Panko officially opened to the public on 07 July 2017 and it bills itself as “Singapore’s sleekest Japanese kushikatsu restaurant”. Which in all honestly, is not difficult as few restaurants in Singapore serve kushikatsu.
Kushikatsu, for the uninitiated, is famous in Osaka and is known to be one of the identities of that city’s food scene. Also known as kushiage, kushikatsu is essentially deep-fried meat/vegetable skewers.
The prices of Panko’s kushikatsu range from S$2 to S$8 per stick. Enjoy the kushikatsu with ponzu dip, Japanese salt or homemade sauce. If you miss having kushikatsu in Osaka, Panko at Haji Lane is your alternative.
