Whilst trying to locate the newly renovated Changi Village Hawker Centre, my brother made a wrong turn and we somehow ended up at this place. Since we were all famished, we decided to just settle our weekly Sunday family brunch here instead.
I must say, this gem was really well hidden! I mean, no one with the right set of business mind would set up a bistro at a place with such low human traffic. Seemed like a route to tragedy to me. Ironically, it was because of the low human traffic which made this particular Sunday brunch much more enjoyable and relaxing.
Back to the hungry family. We ordered the rack of lamb, fish and chips, the cod fish with salsa, specialty chicken wings and the crayfish and mussel arrabbiata to share. A little pricey, but thinking that it was helmed by celebrity chef Eric Neo, at least it was worth the penny.
Up first was the chicken wings. One word – awesome. It’s shrimp paste chicken really well done! Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. The ratio of the shrimp paste was carefully managed so it wasn’t overwhelming. My sister was commenting it’d make a great beer night companion!
The rest of our mains were subsequently served. The serving of the fish and chips was humongous, my brother with the voracious appetite had the initial intention of finishing it on his own, ended up sharing it with his girlfriend instead. Mom loved the cod fish, saying that it was well done. The pasta fell short here, with the crayfish a tad overcooked. Overall, it was one of the best brunches we had.
Worth coming back, but not until when it’s payday for my older siblings. Good food and ambience don’t come cheap. I also heard my brother rattling off to his girlfriend that it’d be best to reach here earlier in the evenings to catch their live band, since this place is only accessible by car (and a bus no. 2) and unfortunately, parking lots are limited.
