Concierge.com's insider take:
This whitewashed traditional Chinatown shophouse, nestled between incense-filled Buddhist temples and Singapore's seedier hotels, has such a lengthy and eclectic menu that you could easily eat from daybreak till well after dark. Their home delivery service, an upscale nod to India's famous dabbawalas, has created a loyal following of locals, who now stop by the airy dining room to chat over breakfasts of hearty homemade oatmeal with brown sugar and vanilla and the best coffee in town. At lunch and dinner, the plush club chairs are the perfect spot for tucking into gazpacho shots, juicy burgers with homemade ketchup, or "lambsicles," Dijon-crusted lamb on a skewer with polenta and spring onions. Regulars drop by to pour their own glasses from the Enomatic machine, stocked with little-known wines from around the world. The best way to end your day? Snuggle up on the elevated loft for flourless chocolate cake and oatmeal cookies, just like the owner's mother makes.
