Reviews of good food at Coalesce

With lunch sets starting at $8.80++ for a 2 course set (yes, forealz), one of the standout dishes that we tried was Spicy Balacan Seafood Linguine Pasta.
Surrounding the pasta was plump and succulent prawns and squid, tossed in spicy balacan. For all spicy food lovers out there, this definitely hits the right spot. With balacan that's sweet, yet packed with a spicy punch, every mouthful could bring you to tears, if you can't take chilli that is, but it's perfect for me.

Thank you @burpple for inviting us to the eatup and the team at Coalesce for hosting us!

Tucked away inside NTU's Alumni Building in One North, this casual dining restaurant serves tasty Asian fusion plates that hit the spot, and its spacious interiors make it perfect for large group gatherings. Try the Ground Beef Rendang Pot Pie ($24), which features the time-tested combination of flaky and buttery pastry with tender ground beef. According to Burppler Jonathan Teo, the beef was well-spiced and mixed through with rocket and potatoes for extra bite. Another winnning plate is the Laksa Linguine ($22), which comes topped with a generous helping of springy squid, peeled prawns and tau pok, as well as a perfect onsen egg. Break the egg and stir it through the pasta for extra lusciousness. It's also only mildly spicy, which makes it ideal for those with a low threshold for spice. If the tongue still burns, cool things down with the Iced Coconut Yam Parfait ($12), a variation on local yam paste (orh nee) that combines yam parfait, fried pumpkin mochi and deep-fried shallots (yes you read that right) — yum! Pro tip: Check out their affordable weekday set lunch ($8.80). For that price you get a main (consider the Spicy Balacan Seafood Linguine), a soup and a drink.

Coalesce takes all things Singaporean and puts their own spin on it! One of the desserts that caught my eye was this variation on orh nee (one of my all-time favourite desserts!).

By using a parfait that was quite intensely yammy (is that even a word), they managed to recreate the flavours of the classic dessert. The fried shallots certainly added an element of surprise to the sweet dish but my favourite was the fried pumpkin mochi which was crispy on the outside and chewy inside.

Coalesce's signature dish is their Ground Beef Rendang ($24++), which is essentially a piquant portion of ground beef that's been fried in a redolent rendang that everyone will relish. It's all loaded into a behemoth of a bowl that's filled to about halfway before it's sealed beneath a layer of buttery, addictive puff pastry.

The rendang itself is thick and less on the gravy-like side, and it cocoons every single element of the beef rendang, from the ground beef to the chunks of potatoes. The inclusion of arugula leaves within was a brilliant play, as the peppery flavor of the arugula counterbalanced the rich, heavy flavors of the beef rendang. Of course, the buttery, flaky puff pastry just made everything just so much better.

However, Jin, the manager, explained to us that while experimenting with their dish, the team at Coalesce decided their dish just felt lacking in satisfaction somehow. The immediate solution was the addition of the potatoes into the luscious mixture. After chowing down on this bowl of beef rendang, I can quite confidently identify the fault. The replacement of the traditional, stewed-till-tender hunks of bovine with ground beef resulted in a lack of bite and character to the dish, and as such, satisfaction levels plummeted.

It really is quite unfortunate, because this dish is flawless in terms of taste. Perhaps Coalesce could look into replacing the ground beef with cubes/slices of beef instead.

Coalesce's legendary laksa pasta now comes in a new version, the Sambal Belacan Seafood Linguine. It actually comes as one of the options for mains in the 2-course power lunch set meal at Coalesce, which is going for $8.80++.

The sambal was moderately spicy, as evidenced by fellow Tastemaker Vanessa immediately reaching for her drink. The spice wasn't enough to mask the rest of the flavors present, fortunately enough. If you brave the heat, you'll be rewarded by a vast ocean of savory, luscious flavors thanks to the sambal belacan that adorns every last linguine.

While the squid could be fresher, the seafood was cooked just right, and there's quite the bounty of them swimming around in this plate eagerly sucking up that sterling sambal belacan.

A nice starter to share (or hog to yourself) would be this Pork Tsukunne! It fulfills all the meaty, creamy, eggy (there's an onsen egg hidden under there!) requirements to a foolproof dish that'll satisfy me. Add in a couple spears of asparagus and I'm sold. Slightly pricy though but I hear they're planning for some possible adjustments so keep a lookout for news from them! 🙌

Hidden away on level 3 of NTU's Alumni Building in One North is @coalesce.sg, a new casual dining restaurant with a focus on fusion cuisine.
We had a group lunch there today and we're all pleasantly surprised by how tasty the dishes were.
Pictured above is the Laksa Linguine from the a la carte menu. Besides the generous helping of springy squid, peeled prawns and "tau pok", the pasta also came topped with an onsen egg that when broken and stirred, coated everything in a luscious silkiness. As it was mildly spicy, this should be fine even for those with a low threshold for hot food.

This really delicious spicy seafood balacan pasta is part of the $8.80 set lunch deal that comes with a soup and a drink. They were very generous with the seafood ingredients as well!

If you live or work in the Buona Vista and One North area, you might want to take note of @coalesce.sg.
This new-ish casual restaurant at NTU's Alumni Building is very spacious and offers a big enough selection of dishes, which makes it suitable for group gatherings.
On a recent visit, we tried their excellent value-for-money $8.80+ set lunch, plus a couple of their fusion dishes. One of them was the Ground Beef Rendang with Puff Pastry. Poke your fork through the light, flaky and buttery pastry "lid" and you'll find a good amount of tender ground beef that's been simmered in rendang spices beneath. For those after something spicy and meaty, this would be a good choice.

Found this on burpple. Good servings and the flavor was really good! Loved the balacan and prawns going together. Definitely value for money for $8.80. Great place for power lunches! (7.8/10)

Very good rendition and the beef rendang was well-spiced with tender minced beef, rockets and potatoes inside. Get a 20% discount off your total bill when you flash the burpple app!
