One of the things we were curious about was their sugarloaf cabbage with seaweed butter. The flavour was outstanding.
Tomato, Tamarind Ponzu ($10.90) which is a refreshing palate-cleanser with its plump and juicy tomatoes, along with yuzu and pickled lemon to enliven the dish with a subtle citrusy, tangy flavour.
Curious Palette is a full-fledge cafe-restaurant and it offers different menus throughout the day.
One Japanese restaurant, En Sushi caught y attention due to its promotion during this period.
Each dishes are delicately crafted to bring out the mouthwatering flavours of Japanese food.
With such an array of fresh seafood, sashimi and a plethora of other delectable dishes for you to indulge in, your inner foodie will be nodding with satisfaction.
The place can get pretty cramped, as tables are close together to cater to the space constraint.
Wildfire Burgers is simply furnished, minimalist industrial chic decor, and comfortable enough.
Wildfire Chicken & Burgers is a local burger joint known for their premium burgers that are grilled over Japanese Binchotan charcoal fire.
Affogato's not bad. Espresso was sufficient bitter which paired quite well with the ice cream.
Impressed by their saffron cream fettuccine with prawns and scallops.
This is my current go to place when I am looking for a great pizza at a good price and don’t really care much about the ambience.
Have a H.K. Summer Iced Milk Tea (S$3.20) along with your meal. The drink comes as a cup served in a bowl of ice so the drink doesn’t get diluted over time.
Back again to the things worth coming for is their steamed chicken rice.
The prices are a bit on the high side, especially when you consider the ambience, or lack of it. However, the food is of good quality.
If you do visit, suggest the first 4 dishes and also many other tables had crab dishes on them, so might be good try too!
It was a delicious dinner and the service was superb.
To me, Wing Seong reminds me of the family dinners I usually have with my family. The simple zhi char style is non-costly and heartwarming. If you're near bugis area, why not drop by and give the authentic cantonese cuisine a try?
the prawns were fresh and the food came out at blazingly fast speed.
If there was anything Thai Gold Food didn't do well at, it was their iced tea. I'm actually surprised this was lacklustre. These days, it's not so difficult to find a better representative of this beverage as it was some years back.
Food takes a backseat at Lowercase. The only thing solid is their house-made ice-cream and coffee.
Lowercase is the perfect chill out, food and study spot for the students with its spacious environment, laid back vibes and of course free all-day wifi, as well as student discount entitlements on top of the already affordably priced dishes.
The rice bowls that we had were not bad, but insufficient to warrant a second visit. However, I’ll make a trip here specially for the Gyocos and a taste of their unique Japanese butter bowls.
Nevertheless, the dishes we had were undoubtedly the beginnings of the must-haves here and would hopefully be signatures to stay.
To be honest, we actually found Kyodai’s food pretty decent — both dishes were actually not too bad especially at that price — their offerings might be appealing to the students in the area, considering the stall’s proximity to Singapore Management University (SMU) and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) and also the office workers in the area.
Eat3Cuts ought to be a popular place for roast meat and duck lovers in the upcoming months thanks to its affordable price and delicious meats.
Promising new next generation roast shop serving roast and pipa duck prepared the old school way.
Overall, not a bad choice in the area, considering how it is a little hidden away from the crowd and hence a little quieter than the other dining spots around
I visited District Sushi without huge expectations and true enough, the food is decent value but not memorable.
It’s a place to swing by, for sure, because there’s also a range of sashimi, nigiri sushi, and more donburi to taste.
All in all, District Sushi is a hidden gem we would highly recommend to students studying at the campuses nearby or those who are on a budget. Their value-for-money donburis and nigiri sushi sets are definitely worth a try!
If you are schooling, working, or always in the area, these other Bencoolen food places make good options as well.
A humble, under-publicised shop of 300 Boru. If you are looking at something more polished, maybe they are still getting a hang of things, but could try if you are in the vicinity.
