The chef behind popular Southeast Asian restaurant Laut has followed up with another restaurant, this time with a traditional menu inspired by the famed street hawkers of Singapore. The restaurant is in a 60-seat space with eight seat-bar designed by the chef himself. Expect blue velvet seats, marble-topped tables, exposed brick, tropical plants, and a flower mural in the dining room.
The menu pulls from classic Singaporean street snacks and other traditional fare - cuisine that has been influenced by several Asian countries like Malaysia, China, Indonesia, and Thailand. Among the dishes are curry puffs with potato, chicken and beef satays, crispy rice salad with vegetables, sweet and spicy chile crab, and Hainanese chicken with rice, chiles, garlic, shallots and soy sauce.
Jumbo prawns in a salty duck egg sauce; chicken and beef satays; and crispy rice salad with chile, mint, and Thai dressing. Singapore’s version of Hainanese chicken (poached chicken in a pandan chicken stock over rice) and chile crab with Chinese buns are also on tap. See the menu below.
