This open-air bar on the roof top of Customs House makes us feel a little like we’re in some gritty side street of Tokyo, but in a good way. The illusion is perfected if you keep your back to Marina Bay Sands – we like to sit perched on barstools that look straight onto weather-beaten walls spunked up with graffiti, ‘Godzilla crossing’ road signs and a corridor lit by red Asakusa-type lanterns. The trellis-lined bar and Japanese writing on bamboos add to the underground, home-run feel of this place, even if the menu strikes a different chord: a little less than half the drinks menu is Japanese, while the cocktails have Western elements shaken in. The house special Spicy Hachimitshu ($16) is a refreshingly spicy martini glass of vodka, honey umeshu, a tinge of wasabi gomme, fresh lemon and Japanese cucumber. The nachos at Kinki are not quite nachos; rather, they’re tempura seaweed sheets topped with guacamole, sour cream and a choice of either black-pepper beef or spicy pork.
