Yakiniku-GO Plus is the premium cousin of Japanese BBQ eatery Yakiniku-GO, which has opened five outlets in Singapore in a space of nine months since February 2021.

The very competitively priced Supreme Beef Platter (S$29.80) is a medley of A5 Miyazaki Wagyu Karubi, diamond cut beef short plate and thick cut beef tongue.
Also available are Yakiniku-GO’s best-value sets – such as Karubi Set and Jyo Karubi & Ribeye Slice Set, with prices starting from S$9.80.
There is also a smorgasboard of ala carte offerings to cherry-pick – from the Gyutan Ajillo (S$14.80/100g) which is beef tongue marinated in garlic, leek, citrus juice, chilli, and black pepper, to the Atsugiri Gyutan, a delicious thick-cut beef tongue.
On top of rice, soup and choice of kimchi, radish kimchi or mini salad (which can be added on for just S$3), the grilled meats come with four types of sauces – House Special Yakiniku Tare, Spicy Yakiniku Tare, Miso Tare and Negi Shio Tare – which are all formulated in-house. The Negi Shio Tare, in particular, is a delightful mix of Japanese leek, along with lemon, lime, yuzu and orange.
Other selected dishes will also be accompanied by condiments such as salt, Ponzu Oroshi and the outstanding Kizami Wasabi – all designed to enhance the flavours of the meat.
