Halloween has crept up on us once again and my post today is to show you where to have a "horror-ween" good time. Halloween is not widely celebrated in Singapore, in fact this year there's only the Halloween Horror Nights 5 that is happening. (I miss Sentosa Spooktacular) So you can imagine the crowds and queues there. Alternatively, one could actually celebrate Halloween by having a good meal, chit-chatting and just chill.ROCKY Yakiniku is one place I would recommend going to. Located at the 4th floor of Bugis+, it was fairly easy to spot this restaurant due to the Halloween decorations outside. ROCKU Yakiniku is a casual, upbeat and edgy restaurant that brings a totally fresh concept to the traditional Yakiniku joints. It's a blend of traditional style of Japanese dining with modern entertainment which perfectly characterize the Japanese pop culture.The pullers there did a fantastic job by dressing up according to the Halloween theme. They are not to frighten you away but are more than happy to welcome you in. Enter if you dare! There's no turning back. So follow me in! Loving the upbeat and lively atmosphere of the interior of the restaurant. I felt like I just stepped into a pub but one which plays all my favourite songs which I can sing along to! That is how ROCKU entertains and enthralls their guests, with modern music of Korean, Japanese, English and Mandarin Pop-Rock variety, catering to the younger patrons who have become more international in their music taste.There's a stage in the middle which is for Live Band happening every Thursday to Saturday from 7pm to 10pm. Tonight's singer is Mint which most of us bloggers would have known too as she's a blogger as well. Aspiring singers can go up there to sing together as well. Check out short performance here.Thursday: Mint and MorganFriday: Regine and ErnestSaturday: Jia Ling and Ernest HORROR-WEEN MOCKTAIL$16.90++ Per JugWe begin our meal with the Horror-ween Mocktail. We chose the Spooky Passion (Passionfruit mocktail) and Bloody Thirsty (Strawberry mocktail). The drinks all have "eyeballs" in it and for the Strawberry mocktail, we even have to inject in the red syrup. Check out my instagram video here.COMPLIMENTARY ROCKU BOMB WELCOME DRINKOne of the main highlights of the night was this drink called the Rocku Bomb Welcome Drink. Be prepared for some shouting and table banging as you try to get that shot of sake to drop into the glass of beer cocktail. We had so much fun doing that. Check out my short instagram video on how we did it here. Best of all, it's complimentary for all customers every Monday to Thursday (while stocks last).YAKINIKU AND BEER BUFFET$35.90++ Per PaxFor $35.90++ per pax, you get to enjoy unlimited servings of meat, vegetable and side dishes from their buffet spread with free-flow beer! This is super duper worth it! Available every Sunday to Thursday from 6pm to 10pm.The joy of cooking your meat and vegetable on the sizzling hot charcoal grill. One thing to bear in mind is not to leave your food on the grill for too long as the fire is really very strong. We burnt some vegetables in the beginning.What better way to enjoy your veggies, seafood and meat at the same time? Meat lover will be able to enjoy the tantalizing cuts of meat, ranging from chicken, pork and beef. For the beef lovers, you will be able to enjoy beef cuts such as strip loin, short rib and chuck tender, all under one roof.Not forgetting to check out their buffet counter for the appetizer, sauces, desserts and some Halloween edition food items!The three main sauces available are sweet miso, spicy miso and ponzu sauce.Appetizer from the buffet counter.Halloween edition food items. Hotdog and cheese as chopped fingers and coloured eggs. Creative!Very unique green and pink chawanmushi.Really yummy side dishes that we had. Yes, they have free flow prawn and salmon too for a different buffet package.Equipped with high performance exhaust system that take care of the smoke, I remain comfortable in the air-conditioned environment throughout my meal. No smelling like BBQ food when I left the place.

Brought its deal from voucherlicious .We had all the food and drinks (free flow jugs of drinks). Price: Only paid $30 for the voucher n no more extra charges. Quite worth it.Food: quite good especially for all the thin slices of meat of beef,bacon & thick pork belly. However other type of thicker slices meat is abit hard.Service: its a sunday n place is full house. Reservations were full so we walk in. We went at 6pm but reception inform us we hv to wait for an hour. When we are back in an hour we continue to wait. Our dinner starts at 8pm.Its good that the food comes in big portion so we dont hv to be keep ordering. Theres not many staffs around and u can see they are all quite busy. But nevertheless they always try to attend to u n get your ordered served. Environment: Cool n hip place. Looks like a club/pub already because of the dim lights. kpop music videos project onto the rugged looking bricks walls n many japanese graffiti. First time see this concept in restaurant . Cool!Dining time is 100mins but maybe because we went in quite late there are no more customers coming in and they are nice enough to let us finish our food without chasing us away and we bbq for about 2hrs. Overall good dining experience and will consider going back!  continue reading

When Charmaine* suggested going for Japanese Charcoal Grill, Micaela* and I readily agreed, since we have never tried it before. So that was how we ended up at Rocku Japanese Charcoal Grill at 201 Victoria Street #04-06 Bugis +, Singapore 188067 (Tel: 6634 3313) for a delicious dinner with a unique experience.Located conveniently Bugis+, Rocku Japanese restaurant looked normal on the outside, as in, just like any Japanese grill restaurant. It was when we stepped in then we realized that it resembled a pub more than a typical charcoal-grill eatery.Get past the rows of exotic Japanese wines and spirits, and head to the dining area. See this screen here in the photo? Don't be fooled, lights will soon be dimmed and Japanese bands entertain diners throughout the night; disco lights started flashing, and the place transformed into a lovely replicant of a Japanese club literallyWe selected what we wanted from the menu - pork, chicken, beef, assortment of vegetables etc, and the very amicable service crew served us shortly. We had a fun time grilling our own food - for me I usually preferred my food a little more char-grilled (blackened) though its unhealthy, I know.The meat portions were rather generous, and very neatly arranged. It was thoughtful that they actually cut up the portions into smaller pieces so it made it easier for us to grill and eat. What we got was mainly lean meat, so it was good. The meat was well-marinated as well, so that they were tasty. The accompaniment of vegetables and mushrooms made for a well-balanced meal albeit it being BBQ. continue reading

We paid close to $40 a person after tax for weekend dinner buffet which is overpriced for the quality of the food we received.Only the ambience was good with a live band which livened up the atmosphere.There was also a 100 minute limit for the buffet.There was a cooked food section which includes chawamushi,nuggets,chicken wings and some fruits such as orange and watermelons.The cooked items were cold and not replenished when finished.There was no free iced water too.We have to pay $12.90 ++ for a jug of soft drinks which is overpriced.The bbq food was very average,the grilling plate that was placed above the charcoal,was thin and easily charred,most of our food was charred quickly upon contact with the grill plate.We requested for the grilling plate to be changed but the server only adjusted the postion of the plate and did not change it. continue reading

I brought my family there for lunch and the place is a great disappointing. I think if you are planning to try, you better think twice!We had set lunch which comes with appetizers free flow. The appetizers are 6 types of "japanese yang tou foo" ie fish ball, meat ball, mushroom, and other flour balls etc soaked in miso soup. Salty and tasted like flour only! The other items are 2 types of fruits - water melon and rock melon, some japanese dishes, chicken wings and fries.The main dish we ordered was fish. The size of the fish was pretty decent, and came with miso soup, kimchi, chawanmushi beans and salad. All these items except the miso soup were available at the buffet bar. I felt that it was not necessary to serve these items at all! The only good thing was the fish tasted good although slightly on the burnt side. We had to reject 1 set because the fish were overly burnt and not acceptable for consuming.The chicken wings and fries were COLD, and the food looked like there are left there over for a long time. HOW can Rocku serve cold food to its customers? Besides there is nothing worth to eat at the appetizers section although they advertized - ALL YOU CAN EAT APPETIZERS with 20 items??? And the 4 side dishes in your set meal were already included in as part of the buffet bar. The waiting time was very long. They were very slow in serving food. We ordered our 6 set lunch (all fish set) and shocking to wait for 1 hour for the last 2 sets. There is no water serve, and they charged $3.99++ for soft drinks and mineral water. The only soy sauce is at the buffet bar and it was empty. I asked for them to replenish but had to wait for a long time!This is the one of the few rest in SIN that serves COLD food, and no water provided, and also have to wait so for about an hour long for the food to be served! The place is almost empty (only 3 tables and us) and imaged the time wasted in waiting! Honestly, I have not eaten at any restaurant that served hot food COLD for a long time. If you like it this way, then this is really the place for you!When the food came, we took our time to wait for the last 2 persons to finish eating (because they have to wait for 1 hour to be served, and another set has to be replaced because of burnt food) but was told that the place would be closed in 5 mins time (meaning we have to get OUT by 5 mins). We took our bags and left! During our meal, there was no one who came by to help clear the dishes as well. Poor customer service! continue reading
