Chikin is as ostentatious as it gets, with bright neon lights, Hello Kitty paraphernalia and Japanese-inspired pop art mural decorating the space. The food is just as colourful: the joint specialises in yakitori spiced with Sichuan mala sauce. The chicken skewers (from $3) are cooked using Japanese techniques over Binchotan flames, but tastes closer to the popular street snack, shao kao, which you’ll find on the streets of Chengdu. But it’s not all spicy grilled meats on the menu – Chikin also whips up a wicked bowl of unagi garlic fried rice ($12) topped with generous cubes of grilled eel and tobiko.
