ASIAN CHOICES TO WHET YOUR APPETITE
(Main picture) Clockwise from top:
KORYO MART B3-16
Bring the K-wave into your kitchen at Singapore’s most prominent Korean mart. Everything is brought straight from Korea, from its ramyeon noodles and seaweed to snacks and beverages. Don’t leave without some kimchi — there are even 2kg packs for big fans!
JiBiru Craft Beer Bar 01-26
Bar eats don’t have to be boring. The Yakitori Salad ($12.50) features seasoned chicken over fresh salad, while the Smoked Aigamo ($11) with slices of tender smoked duck breast is great with an ice-cold beer.
Kaisen Tei 03-41
Relish in the ocean’s bounty with the Signature Kaisen Don ($13.90), with cubes of maguro, salmon, tako and mini hotate mixed in a refreshing unique Kaisen sauce and served over rice.
If sweltering spice is what you want, get the Ayam Penyet ($8.80), Indonesian smashed fried chicken served with rice, accompanied with homemade chilli sauce that packs a serious punch.
Encik Tan B3-39/40
Savour this must-have — Pan Mee Dry ($5), with noodles in a sweet, salty and spicy sauce mix, served with minced chicken, mushrooms, leafy greens, fried ikan bilis and an egg.
For some comfort food, warm up with Sukiyaki Teishoku ($19.90) — thin slices of beef in a bubbling hot-pot with a soy sauce-base stock. Complete with rice, miso soup and egg, you’ll definitely leave with your belly satisfied.
Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory B3-03 to 06
Feel the heat with Spicy Topokki ($15.90), Korean rice cakes, fishcakes, Cajun-battered squid and a deep-fried egg coated in a red-hot sauce. Have it as it is, or amp it up by adding breaded chicken tenders ($4)! Equally satisfying is the Spicy Chi-bap ($32.90), juicy fried chicken tenders and sweet potatoes tossed in a onion salsa marinade and BBQ sauce, served with seaweed-flavoured rice, fries and grated cheese.
If you’re a cheese fiend, you’ll love the Cheese Chicken Galbi ($55.90), spicy chicken chunks piled on a pan with fresh vegetables and Korean rice cakes, surrounded by a oozy melted cheese dip.
Find comfort food at its best at Saboten. Try the Hunwari Tenderloin Katsu Don Gozen ($22.50), with two pieces of mini pork tenderloin with Saboten’s unique donburi sauce over rice, or the Loin Katsu Curry Gozen ($21), pork loin katsu with curry sauce over rice, both served with miso soup, chawanmushi, cabbage, pickles and dessert.
Can’t get enough of matcha? Get your fix with Hyala’s unique matcha creations. The Matcha Kaze ($7.40, $1 will be refunded upon the return of glassware) is high-grade Nishio matcha shaken with lemongrass-infused honey brew and topped with dairy-free yuzu foam.
Small Potatoes Ice Creamery B3-48
Yes, guilt-free ice cream is a thing, and you can find it at Small Potatoes Ice Creamery. Try the signature Small Potato Party ($10 with a choice of soft serve), Okinawa purple potato ice cream packed with traditional Japanese toppings like Azuki red beans and Warabi mochi and filled with antioxidants and dietary fibre.
WESTERN FLAVOURS THAT PACK A PUNCH
Brotzeit® German Bier Bar & Restaurant 01-27
Go all out with the Wunderplatte ($128 for six pax), a massive platter comprising a whole oven-roasted chicken, Berner sausages, honey bavarian ribs and the signature crispy oven roasted pork knuckle. Paired with a couple of pints of beer, this is the ultimate get-together platter.
BARRIO by Mex Out 01-14/15
For a little taste of the sea, get yourself a pair ($13.40) or trio ($15.90) of Fish Tacos — soft corn tortillas with beer-battered sea bass, pickled red cabbage, chipotle aioli and red salsa.
Dubbed the Asian cousin of the American-favourite sloppy Joe burger, the Hadoken ($8) is packed with a pork patty slathered with a chilli meat sauce, melted cheese, diced onions and bacon. Complete your meal with Chilli Cheese Fries ($6), fries covered with equally spicy pork chilli and cheese sauce.
HAAKON Superfoods and Juice B2-14 & 53/53A
A meal isn’t always a guilty pleasure, especially when it’s a wholesome Haakon’s Acai Bowl ($7.90 small, $12.90 large). An icy organic acai blend on a chia seed parfait is topped with gourmet granola, coconut flakes and seasonal fruit.
DIY is at its most delicious at iCrepe. Pick and choose from the wide array of sweet and savoury fillings, and watch as the Crepe Artist makes and assembles your crepes right in front of you!
