[Food Tasting] Rocku Yakiniku Horror-Ween Night

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.

$16.90++ Per Jug

We 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.


One 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).

$35.90++ Per Pax

For $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. Thank you for the invitation!
