the masses

The Masses

The Masses is the brainchild of Chef Dylan Ong (one of the former co-owners of Saveur) and strives to serve ‘contemporary happy food at low prices’, something they definitely weren’t kidding about – everything in the menu is priced below $20! Give their version of Sotong a whirl: it consists of tender sous vide Australia Fremantle Octopus charred on binchotan coals, served alongside pickled lotus root with gochujang aioli. Delish!

Find it at 85 Beach Road #01-02, Singapore 189694

Brine Restaurant

Brine Restaurant is The Laneway Market’s sassier and more experimental younger sister – they’re operated by the same folks, but Brine has deviated from the standard hipster cafe scene to bring you exquisite tasting menus with a contemporary twist on the classics. Pop by for their 5-course tasting dinner menu and tuck into aburi-ed Tenderloin Tatare with wasabi mayo and lotus root, Mussels cooked with garam masala and served alongside papadum and freshly grated parmesan, and deliciously creamy homemade ice cream. It’ll be a meal you won’t forget!

Find it at 775 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 198743

Bistro November

Bistro November sets itself apart from all the other new restaurants in Singapore thanks to their ever-changing market-driven menu – everything you’re about to chow down on is purchased fresh from Chinatown markets in the morning and prepared based on whatever ingredients they have on hand, making each visit a unique experience. It’s a place unlike any other, and definitely somewhere you’ll never tire of visiting!

#WTF stands for Wine, Tapas & Friends, so why not head down after a tiring day at work? Grab a bottle of amazingly-priced wine off the rack (indecisive people beware: there are so many options you’ll be standing there for at least an hour), order an assortment of delicious and unbelievably affordable tapas (pro-tip: #wtf sliders are amazing), and invite a couple of people you love for a casual get-together. You’ll be recharged in no time – there’s really no better way to celebrate the end of a long week!
