Unit No: 01-84 | Galleria
Balinese Ribs (Half Rack $20, Full Rack $36)
NEW-to-market Monkey Warung serves up inexpensive Pork Ribs and modern Indonesian style dishes with recipes from Bali.
The dishes here are created using a traditional charcoal grill which delivers a selection of grilled seafood and meat.
Indonesian delicacies you can expect include Cumi Bakar Jimbaran (grilled squid), Pepes Cumi (Chilli Squid), Satay Lilit Bali (pork satay), and dishes of Sop Buntut (oxtail soup), Ayam Penyet Rice, Nasi Goreng Seafood wigh Egg, Crispy Pork Belly.
Their fork-tender signature ribs are quite affordably priced, with a sizable half-rack portion at $20. If you come in a bigger group, then get the full rack at $36.
The ribs were marinated with a special recipe and spices, glazed with sweet sauce then grilled over charcoal flames. Suitable for communal dining with friends and family as portions can be huge.
Equilibrium Modern Italian Bacaro & Ristorante
Unit No: 01-86 | Galleria
Tel: +65 6384 4069
Dutch Street ‘Fries’ – Crocchette Patatje Oorlog ($12.90)
Keep an eye for Equilibrium’s NEW “Cicchetti” menu featuring beloved street food classics from around the world reworked with a little Italian touch.
“Cicchetti” means savoury snacks or small side dishes.
One of the highlights is the Crocchette Patatje Oorlog, inspired by the popular Dutch street fries. But you don’t get fries here. What you have is a rethought version of potato croquettes with mozzarella cheese.
That is not all. The potato balls are popped with the essential chopped onions drizzled with mayonnaise and Indonesian sate sauce. Just like what they do in Amsterdam. Weird but true.
You can also look out for their Tunnbrödsrulle, Equilibrium’s interpretation of the Swedish hot dog with Mangalica pork sausages in homemade flatbreads filled with creamy shrimp salad.
Ryu’s Japanese Restaurant & Sake Bar
Unit No: 01-87 | Galleria
Tel: +65 6384 9087
Japanese Style Stewed Iberian Pork Ribs ($23 Ala Carte, $25 Set Lunch)
Backed by 33 years of operating experience, Ryu’s specialises in traditional Japanese cuisine, with fresh ingredients imported directly from Japan including the renowned Tsukiji market.
The Japanese Style Stewed Iberian Pork Ribs that reminded me of a braised Bak Kut Teh is said to be one of their most popular lunchtime sets.
When put to the ‘test’, the meat tore apart (check out the video above) easily and simply with chopsticks.
The spare ribs simmered in sweetened soy sauce were intensely flavourful, served with boiled daikon brushed with black miso paste.
Oriole Coffee + Bar
Unit No: 02-20/21 | Neue
Tel: +65 6384 6495
Oriole Truffle Burger ($18 Ala Carte, $19 for Set Lunch with Beverage)
Specialty coffee house Oriole Coffee + Bar features their classic brunch fare matched with desserts and gourmet coffee.
Some of their recommendations include Fish & Chips, Capellini Crabmeat, Fish Tacos, Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, Avocado & Toast, and Espresso Hotcakes.
I would recommend the Oriole Truffle Burger ($18) though slightly greasy, was a mouth-watering treat. It comes with a juicy piece of grilled beef patty with sautéed mushroom, caramelised onions, melted cheese and truffle aioli sandwiched in a fluffy brioche bun. Of course with Oriole-spiced fries.
Best to be paired with an in-house Taisho cold-brewed coffee.
Ramen & Tonkatsu Ma Maison
Unit No: B2-51 | Neue
Tel: +65 6384 6211
Tonkatsu Ramen ($17.80)
The soup base for Ma Maison’s ramen is specially cooked from Japanese domestic pork bones, heated for 10 hours to create that creamy white coloured broth.
Yet, it is lighter than the usual ramen soup bases so that it could be paired up with deep fried pork cutlet. You can choose to have it in shio, shoyu or miso soup combinations.
Good to know: The pork used for the tonkatsu went through an aging process to enhance the flavour from the pork. Also, the rosu cut or pork loin was used for juicier texture with a strip of fat along the side.
Unit No: B2-55 | Neue
Tel: +65 6384 5131
Chicken and Mozzarella Cutlet Plate ($17.80)
The Japanese French Cafe popular for its “hand-dripped” coffee and dessert soufflés has introduced a “Hoshino Coffee Special Selection”.
The items include Teriyaki Chicken Steak Plate with Onsen Egg, Angus Beef Steak Plate, Lasagna with Mini Soufflé Pancake Plate, Mini Soufflé Omelette & Mini Soufflé Pancake with Sausage & Bacon, and a very enticing Matcha Pancake Soufflé Style served with kuromame (sweet black soy beans).
I had the Chicken & Mozzarella Cutlet Plate, served with choice of rice or toast. While this looked like ordinary chicken cutlet from is appearance, as you pick up a piece, be surprised with its oozy centre and stretchy cheese pull.
Matched with its crisp panko exterior, the meal was superbly juicy as well. Drizzle with tonkatsu sauce to add that special sweet-sour flavour.
Unit No: B2-54 | Neue
Gobi Manchurian ($12.00)
Established in 2009, Nalan is one of Singapore’s most famous contemporary Indian vegetarian restaurants.
It features a delectable array of North and South Indian cuisine, Every dish is made to order, with home-cooked experience at every siting.
