Welcome to Hanare by Takayama.
A new Japanese concept by Chef Taro Takayama featuring traditional and homey dishes that highlight seasonality-driven and exquisite ingredients.
An Ode to
In Japan, Hanare is an extension of a building or home. A dynamic communal space, one used to entertain, host, or pursue one’s personal hobbies.
Chef Taro Takayama welcomes you to Hanare by Takayama. Here, he embodies the spirit of a typical Hanare, entertaining and delighting diners with traditional and soulful fare in a welcoming and contemporary approach.
From a small city known as Wakayama, near Osaka, Chef Taro's passion for food took root and blossomed in his hometown. The comforting taste of childhood dishes remained deeply etched in his memory.
His experience has brought him to three-star Michelin restaurants in Osaka and the Japanese Ambassador’s residence in Singapore. Since opening Takayama on Shenton Way, Chef Taro has been relentlessly honing his craft while placing ingredients and seasonality centre stage, an ethos that clearly also reflected in his new casual concept, Hanare by Takayama.
