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.
Avg Price: $25 per person
