Ambush-Pan European Dining describes themselves as a ‘sausage & pasta bar’ – it might sound like an odd combo, but they sure know their European cuisine inside out. Yet, they’re not afraid of a little fusion and can throw together a tasty dish using ingredients like seaweed, fish roe, and thai basil.

We tried the Sichuan ‘Mala’ Grilled Fish ($70), which had tender chunks of fish seeping in numbing spice broth.
Another dish worth trying is their baos: the flavours lean towards the quirky side, especially with Colonel San Da’s Chicken Bao ($12), which is an adapted version of Colonel Sanders’ finger-lickin’ good fried chicken.
