Conceptualised by new head bartender Jorge Conde, the menu showcases various playful libations which often riff off classic cocktails and emphasize experience over visuals (the latter being quite the focal point in previous iterations of the menu).

While the agave-led "Smoke & Mirrors #4" updates the bar's signature cocktail, "Robbery At The Museum" reimagines the Singapore Sling as a foamy minx who's more pineapple tart than cherry sweet, and the "Le Paix 75" is a luxuriously botanical take on the classic Martini.

Generally imperceptible, the spicy and numbing element only reveals itself if you allow the broth to rest in your mouthly cavern before you experience ashy embers shyly envelope the length of your tongue. 3.4/5

Like an over-eager Sundown marathoner, the already hesitant flames quickly ebb to reveal a moderately robust chicken broth. 3.3/5

There are both sweet and savoury options on the menu showcasing these sponge-light and quiveringly wobbly mounds of pancake pleasure, from the serrano ham-starring and Hollandaise sauce-drenched Benedict to the crinkly caramelled Crème Brûlée.

The pandan perfume worn by the River Valley-sweet custard plays it more Aesop than Davidoff Cool Water, while elsewhere the coconut flakes add texturality to the cotton-soft proceedings.

Combines the crispy skin and roast of chicken with the smoky, sticky and intoxicatingly aromatic waxed meat goodness of glutinous rice in one scrumptiously addictive package. 4.1/5

The juicy meatballs were a cross between luncheon meat and ngoh hiang, while elsewhere the titular tofu possessed a savoury, meaty quality and the slitheringly luscious greens played it all sorts of eloquent economic rice joy. 4/5

The rice noodles played it like mee sua gymnastically intertwined with kway teow, while elsewhere the red broth played it more Drew Barrymore than Nicki Minaj and the braised pig intestines headlined the bowl with its suggestively gamey, Jessica Rabbit-esque sultry. 3.9/5
