Cheek Bistro

53 Wishlisted
~$60/pax
In a nod to Cheek by Jowl, CHEEK BISTRO is its cheekier younger sibling by Chef Rishi Naleendra and his wife Manuela Toniolo. It flaunts a more playful personality, whether through its concept or vibe. Small or large sharing plates showcase familiar flavours but in exciting guises, such as with bold flavour combinations or unconventional executions.

I only managed to visit @cheek.sg three days ago, a few months after it subtly shapeshifted into a bistro. To me, the intangible but undeniably present qualities that have remained of #cheekbyjowlsg is Chef-owner Rishi Naleendra’s unique take and elegant execution of choice produce and ingredients as evidenced by the new dishes on the menu, and his wife Manuela’s disarming smile and relaxed hospitality which makes everyone immediately feel at home (she has quite the knack of changing your mind about a midday glass of wine too). I may have missed Chef Rishi that day (he’s busy getting his new restaurant on Amoy Street ready for the scheduled opening in mid July), but I saw Chef Alan more than capably holding the fort with the team during the lunch hour rush.
Although my friend and I had already ordered a few dishes including the barramundi for ourselves, we were surprised by chef with the house-cured trout shown above. You can bet we were only too happy to give it a try and yes, it revealed itself to be most delicious.
The layer of very fine black olives was a delightful savoury foil to the clean-tasting fish. Even more so when whooshed through the light almond cream, and interspersed with bites of the crisp, cool shaved fennel. Needless to say, the plate was as clean as a whistle by the time we were done.

My hands-down favourite from my spontaneous lunch at Cheek Bistro. I literally went “Wow!” when I took my first bite. Though surprising, the micro herbs and crispy fried shallots went amazingly well with the creamy cheese and fresh, juicy heirloom tomatoes. What however, elevated the dish to become nothing short of spectacular was the addition of fermented green chilli. It brought an eye-opening tropical sultriness of heat, tang and intoxicating aroma that was completely unexpected but made total sense because when I had a mix of everything in my mouth, it tasted unspeakably perfect.

What is possibly the most instagrammed of all the items on Cheek Bistro’s menu so far, the Waffle with Chicken Liver Parfait also tastes as good as everyone says.
I loved it most when I bit into the parts of the light, crunchy waffle that hid more of the sweet date jam (it‘s under the supremely light and creamy clouds of chicken liver). The pickled mustard seeds is an ingenious touch as it brought a little extra texture and burst of flavour to each bite.
