[SG EATS] Ginza Rokukakutei (六覺燈) At Odeon Towers

Housed at the corner of the bustling Odeon towers is Osaka One-Michelin-starred Japanese Restaurant Ginza Rokukakutei. The restaurant is within a walking distance from City Hall MRT station.
Ginza Rokukakutei
“Rokukaku” means six senses- the five senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch, and the sense of creating. Tei means torch, a word chosen by Chef Hideyuki Tanaka’s master in hopes that many people will gather around and be drawn to this torch. A well-known name amongst Japanese gourmands since 1980 and this is the restaurant’s very first overseas foray.

Rokukakutei offers Osaka’s soul food, the kushikatsu, which is Japanese’s deep-fried skewers of meat, seafood and vegetables. Helmed by Chef Hideyuki Tanaka who has 15 years of experience, be prepared to be transported to the world of skewers. Rokukakutei also uses Fresh premium ingredients are flown in from Japan daily.

There are 5 different omasakes menus to choose from: Roku, Kaku, Tei, Iku and Ken.We tried the Tei Omasake course($148++) which consists of 20 skewers and showcase a heartier medley of meats, seafood and vegetables. All courses are served with fresh seasonal vegetables from Japan, bread and dessert of the day. The skewers are accompanied by 6 different types of sauces that include lemon mustard, shoyu, sesame mustard, organic red wine sauces, Japanese salt and pepper. The course is also made to pair it with white and red wines. I personally love to pair my skewers with the white wine.
Ginza Rokukakutei-Vegetable bowl
Starting off with the seasonal vegetable bowl, which caught me off guard due to the level of freshness. Every ingredient is either crisp, sweet or crunchy, balancing each other out! The bowl is served with no dressing, but feel free to dip some vegetables into the 6-different type of sauces.

Ginza Rokukakutei-Skewers
We had a range of skewers that includes scallops, wagyu beef, and chicken paired with mountain caviar. Each skewer is fried to perfection and is gently placed on a piece of bread and what’s interesting is that the chef will place the end of the stick to the recommended sauce. Every skewer is flash fried and is spin to prevent over-greasiness.
Ginza Rokukakutei-Homemade bread
Halfway through the course, a refreshing tomato granita was served, and we have told it was a palate cleanser. A bowl of homemade bread served with cheese was also brought to us, which helps to balance out the diet. The bread was soft and it entered my list of favourite bread immediately.
Ginza Rokukakutei-Salmon with pickled chrysanthemum on top
My personal favourite was the Salmon with pickled chrysanthemum. The overall taste was amazing and an eye-opener. The salmon was fresh and along with the toppings, the taste was well balanced yet amazing. Another skewer that stood out, is the sticky rice made with small shrimp. The skewer felt like sushi, and the taste was indescribable.

The experience here at Rokukakutei has been an eye-opener. Every skewer was unique to its own taste, and by the 15th stick, I was already struggling to finish. The chef and Service staff was also constantly checking up on the food, and my welfare. With its classy interior, being here feels like a small getaway to Osaka. The experience may come with a hefty price tag, but it’s worth every penny.
