4 Hidden Food Places in Esplanade You Might Not Know

Do you know that there are actually lots of good food in Esplanade? Have a meal and catch a performance, or simply just visit here for a cozy dinner.

Suzette

Suzette

Located at Esplanade Annexe, I had a great time doing a food trail here! I went to several places, Alter Ego, Wah Kee Big Prawn, Suzette, and Supply & Demand. It was fun and delightful.

1. Alter Ego

Alter Ego

Alter Ego

I started it off with Alter Ego. They serve Hawaiian poke bowls in the day, but craft beers and bar grub in the night. It is a good place to chill and a sweet spot to a spectacular view of the Marina Bay. 

Seafood Gumbo

Seafood Gumbo

Inspired by Louisiana, Seafood Gumbo is a Creole-style soup with intense flavor from the roasted prawn heads, and spices. It is then thickened with delicious sweet roasted vegetables. Served with shrimps, shredded chicken Italian sausage, it goes perfectly with their garlic paprika bread!

I personally enjoy this soup a lot! I love the strong aroma of the prawn and it was just too good and comforting!

Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich

Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich

Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich felt like the ‘atas’ (high class) version of McSpicy. Deep fried chicken thigh drizzled with cheese sauce and sandwiched between buttery soft brioche bun, it was hell delicious! The chicken was crispy and well-seasoned. Additionally, it was also juicy! Definitely a winner.

Wah Kee Prawn Noodles

Began in 1951, Wah Kee’s signature dish is prawn noodle. The robust soup, gigantic prawns and firm noodles all come together to achieve a winning dish.

Famous Wah Kee Prawn Noodles can also be found here in Esplanade! Why go to Pek Kio Market where it is hot and humid to eat the famous prawn noodles when you can eat here chilly with air-conditioning in Esplanade?

Prices are still as affordable and there are new dishes that will be available exclusively only at this outlet. Make sure to drop by for your prawn noodles kick!

3. Suzette

White chocolate durian tart

White chocolate durian tart

I’m sure I have mentioned about Suzette, the dessert bar before. It is a small cafe where you can find delicious and comforting desserts and tarts. Their creations always make me excited and I love it.

One look and you will know it’s a durian tart as it looks like a durian. Suzette’s White Chocolate Durian Tart won’t be surprising as it’s located here in Esplanade which has a similar appearance too! Even though I’m not a fan of durian, it was pleasing and Durian-lovers will find it satisfying as the flavor of the fruit was intense.

Lemon Tart

Lemon Tart

Though I do hope that their Lemon Tart can be more sourish, I’m sure this tart will fair much better to others as I’m a little extreme. Nevertheless, I had the whole tart myself because it’s still my favorite! 

Handcrafted waffles with ice-cream

Handcrafted waffles with ice-cream

Served with their homemade ice-cream, I was surprised that they served handcrafted waffles here! Waffles are always welcome!

4. Supply & Demand

Salted Egg Yolk Drumlets (front) & Garlic Truffle Fries (back)

Do you know? Supply & Demand’s Garlic Truffle Fries have been voted as one of the best in town by Lifestyle Asia Singapore, Lady Iron Chef, Honey Combers, The Smart Local SG, Marie France Asia, and more.

Though Supply and Demand is a Italian restaurant, they introduced many Southeast Asian dishes to the menu to let their tourist guests enjoy our local favourites. One of their dishes is Salted Egg Yolk Drumlets. Typical spiced fried drumlets with salted egg yolk sauce and curry leaves. 

The Morning After Pizza

The Morning After Pizza

One of their signature pizza, The Morning After Pizza is served with tomato sauce, mozzarella, bacon and mushrooms with a soft egg set in the center. I think it will pairs well with beers and cocktails!

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake

Cute right? Strawberry Shortcake is a very popular comfort drink! This cocktail consists of vodka, strawberry syrup, frangelico, whipped cream and milk. So instagrammable at time same time.

Suzette @ Esplanade – The Picnic Basket Concept

Suzette @ Esplanade

Suzette @ Esplanade

If you have heard about Lola’s Cafe, then I’m sure you will want to know more about this new Dessert Bar at Esplanade. The owner of Lola’s Cafe opened a new Dessert Bar named Suzette. Conveniently located at Esplanade, this dessert bar offers a wide scrumptious of desserts and savory menus that are all so heavenly.

Yet, Suzette is not like any other ordinary cafes or dessert bars. Starting from 5th November 2016, you could rent a picnic basket and a mat with a deposit of $50 to go for a picnic! How unconventional right?

Suzette Picnic

Suzette Picnic

I got to have a wonderful picnic experience with their new picnic concept. I love the idea of having an outdoor meal with nature.

Pulled Duck Burger

Pulled Duck Burger

Pulled Duck Burger. Sure it will be messy when having this. But, the shredded duck meat was pleasantly sweet. It was certainly refreshing. 

Quinoa Rice Bowl

Quinoa Rice Bowl

My personal favorite, Quinoa Rice Bowl with Chicken, Guacamole, Corn & Chilli Lime Dressing. I think that the chicken was well-grilled. Paired with the guacamole and dressing, it was flavorful and so delish! I totally prefer Quinoa to Brown Rice. Still, Quinoa is as healthy as Brown Rice. So I was glad that they used Quinoa.

Passion Fruit and Basil Cheese

Passion Fruit and Basil Cheese

For dessert, I got to try out Passion Fruit and Basil Cheesecake. It was fabulously exotic!

From top to bottom, the creator of this dessert certainly a whole lot of thought it too! I was told that only the whipped cream was infused with Basil and not the whole cake itself as some people might not be so fond of the flavor. Then, I was amazed by a wonderful combination of Passion Fruit and Cheese together. Just you think it can’t get any special, the crust was made with a very unusual ingredient. I can’t tell you what is it but, you got to try it out!

Coffee Hazelnut Tart

Coffee Hazelnut Tart

If you love Nutella, you got to try this out yeah! 

Coffee Hazelnut Tart, lovely as always. A mocha nutty crust, hard yet crumbly soft! A little ironic I know but that is how I am going to describe it. The filling was wonderful and aromatic too! Surely a rich and decadent dessert, if that’s what you are looking for.

Banana Earl Grey Cake

Banana Earl Grey Cake

Dense fudgy Banana-flavored & Earl Grey Cake covered with luscious smooth Banana-Flavored almost-caramelized buttercream, that’s a lot of banana to represent this cake. 

Something different if you are feeling adventurous, especially if you are deeply in love with banana. 

Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart, a good balance of sour and sweet deems a good tart. I’m sure this will satisfy most people, but I find a little just a little more sourish will do my liking. Nevertheless, I still find that they have one of the best Lemon Meringue Tart in town.

Raspberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Curd

Raspberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Curd

Raspberry Loaf with Lemon Curd may sound rather uncommon to us Singaporeans, but actually a very popular combination elsewhere in the world. Try it out yourself and you will know why. At the very least, I’m sure that a loaf cake won’t go wrong.

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Simple and light Acai Smoothie Bowl. If you ain’t looking anything to devour down a rather heavy meal, maybe you could grab a bowl of Acai Smoothie from there. Topped with fresh fruit and yummy-limous crumble, simple, light and refreshing.

Drinks

Drinks

Chocolate drink is my favorite among these three. Nevertheless, all three of them are very rich and fragrant.

Suzette Picnic

Suzette Picnic

It was definitely a pleasant evening with Suzette and their new Picnic Concept. I can see that many people will enjoy this idea during their weekends with their family and friends especially after a long week of work. I too would bring someone I want to spend time with to sit down and enjoy the marvelous evening.

Thanks Suzette for having me, giving such as a great hospitality. Ring them out to find more information about it!

Dallas Restaurant & Bar @ Suntec City Sky Garden

Dallas Restaurant & Bar

Dallas Restaurant & Bar

Suntec has been offering a wide variety of restaurants and Dallas is one of it you should totally check it out. Dallas is a good place to hangout as the bar/bistro concept restaurant offer casual dining ambiance for your after-work drinks and a glorious city view.

Pineapple Punch and Cherry Peach Cooler

Pineapple Punch and Cherry Peach Cooler

Refreshing mocktails before dinner starts. Didn’t want to take alcohol as it was a weekday.

Snapper Fish Tacos

Snapper Fish Tacos

For starters, I got to try out Snapper Fish Tacos. The fish fillets were lightly battered fried till crispy golden brown. Paired with lovely cheesy nacho cheese, pineapple chutney and a finishing of lime juice. It was heavenly amazing. I love it!

BBQ Chicken Parm

BBQ Chicken Parm

Next, I got to try out BBQ Chicken Parm. Pan-fried chicken breast, wrapped with grilled bacon and caramelized onions, and topped with a generous amount of melted mozzarella cheese. 

BBQ Barramundi

BBQ Barramundi

This got to be my favorite main dish, BBQ Barramundi. Crispy skin, yet tenderly soft meat, served with Garlic Mayonnaise and a finishing squeeze of lemon juice. It’s a great choice, yum!

Meat Platter

Meat Platter

When you are in Dallas, you should totally try our their Meat Platter when dining with your friends. Though this Meat Platter is for 2, I find that it is more suitable for 4 people. The Meat Platter consists of Braised Pork Ribs, Australian Lamb, Prime Rib, and Roasted Chicken. It comes with Mint Jelly, Mushroom Sauce, and Black Pepper Sauce. The Mint Jelly goes delightfully with the Lamb Cutlets, while the other sauces should be paired with the Roasted Chicken.

Keylime Pie

Keylime Pie

If you love sourish dessert, this is for you. I highly recommend you to get a slice of Keylime Pie to share at the end of your meal here in Dallas as it was very zesty and sharp.

Warm Chocolate Brownie

Warm Chocolate Brownie

THIS IS THE BEST BROWNIE I EVER HAD! TRUST ME! It was so rich and indulgent, even I was embarrassed with my own brownie recipes. I was told that all their desserts were made in-house, I wonder why they did not open a brownie shop because this brownie really deserves some recognition.

Apple Pie

Apple Pie

Lastly, I also got to try their Apple Pie. I do like the Cinnamon Apple filling. Yet, the crust was a little too soft and lacks flavor.
