A hidden gem with an affordable, rustic set lunch menu with dishes that were executed perfectly.

The salad was a refreshing starter with a zingy wasabi soy drizzle. They do a mean spinach aglio olio, cooked to garlicky, al-dente perfection, topped with slices of eggplant and zucchini that were fresh, juicy with an addictive charred smokiness. Fans of the classic carbonara might take a liking to their fusion take, with bonito flakes crowning the creamy dish.

We were treated to a colourful trio of hand-shaved chips - the sweet potato chips were outstanding (dip them in the homemade guacamole salsa and you'll see why). Teas were at $2 a pop with the set lunch - the iced pomegranate tea was a refreshing treat.

We stared longingly at the halibut dish that was also on the menu, but that's a dish for another culinary sojourn.

Hands down one of the best comfort food ever - slivers of potato pan-fried till golden brown and decadently crispy, paired with tender, well-marinated bugolgi beef. The dollop of sour cream made the dish complete by giving it a smooth, creamy finish.

With a pastel-hued interior and ultra comfy seats, Cafe Milligram is a great place to rewind after work.

The basil pesto cream gnocchi was a delightful dish, with a generous portion of gnocchi bathed in a sea of pesto sauce. The sauce was bursting with tangy flavours, which made it less cloying than the usual cream-based sauces.

We also had the medium rare sous-vide steak paired with sweet potato fries (they give you more fries if you are not a fan of rocket leaves salad). The sizeable 250g steak was melt-in-your-mouth tender, well-seasoned and ridiculously juicy - everything you want in a good ol' steak.

Those sweet potato fries were seriously the bomb and came fresh, fluffy and crispy. The delightful tango of savoury and sweet flavours were on point(e).

Will bookmark this hidden gem in Marina One (find it on level 1)! Mains hover around $20 or less and you can snag a 1 for 1 promotion if you sign up for the Burpple Beyond membership.
