Located along Circular Road is newly-opened Yatagarasu, a quaint little eatery devoted to serving up authentic Japanese chargrilled meat skewers.
Besides the usual skewers you would expect to find at most yakitori joints, you can expect a pretty impressive selection of 10 innovative pork belly-wrapped creations here as well ranging from enoki mushroom to curry rice..
This unassuming yakitori joint along Circular Road makes for a good, robust meal with your mates before you pop over just a few steps away to the boat quay area for a tipple or two.
With the opening of Hillview Community Club, residents and those who are working near the area now have more dining options apart from restaurants and cafes at HillV2. One cafe that stood out among the rest of the casual dining spots there is Kohi-Ya.

The gorgeous interior is also an added bonus, so remember to drop by this new cafe in the West of Singapore for a weekend brunch with your family or significant other! READ ON

Unfortunately, the neighbourhood had to make way in late 2016 due to developments under Mountbatten’s estate renewal plans, and so did Tian Kee & Co.
