Hid­den away in the back al­ley of Amoy Street is this 38-seat restau­rant, named for the Ja­panese white char­coal used in grilling. The menu boasts a unique fu­sion of Ja­panese and French cuisines, such as the shaven foie gras with a pâté-like con­sis­tency that comes with daikon for a re­fresh­ing twist, as well as the shi­itake mush­rooms and dashi gelée. The cap­pellini, stud­ded with sakura ebi, shio kombu and chives, comes in a gen­er­ous por­tion, while the 18-hour slow-cooked An­gus short rib is sea­soned with a savoury Ja­panese black vine­gar glaze, and served with burnt leek purée and na­gaimo (moun­tain yam) fries. Staff are pa­tient in ex­plain­ing each dish and aren’t shy about giv­ing ec­om­men­da­tions.
