Maxwell has the majority of typical Singapore dishes - Hainanese as well as Malay (ayam penyet) chicken rice, Nasi lemak, carrot cake, fish soup, peranakan, laksa, porridge, etc. Even western salads or ramen for unadventurous tourists. That’s why both ang moh (tipped by tourist guide books or travel websites) come here. Prices are reasonable, not cutthroat as in tourist ghettos like Newton Circus. Of course, Singapore street food being so plentiful, many dishes are not represented, eg. fish head curry, prawn mee, biryani, claypot rice, sup tulang, etc. My favs are Tian Tian chicken rice, China Fritters, and Fuzhou oyster cake (see reviews).

Wide variety of food. The seafood (lobster, prawns, crab, oysters, sashimi) is the best - quite fresh. The Indian selection is also commendable. The local food is mediocre, far below the level at StraitsKitchen at the Grand Hyatt: bak chor mee, laksa, roast meats, carrot cake. Service is friendly but not terribly proactive - we had to ask for water refills all the time. Surprisingly, the cashier agreed to give us parking redemption tickets only if we signed up for (free) membership of local MO eating club.

The famous signature dish - uni on squid ink and egg yolk pudding - is innovative and truly sublime! I could easily have several of those in one meal! Other dishes are quite good (the simple tomato salad oozes sweetness and freshness), but not necessarily memorable: the ribeye steak could be more tender; there’s not much tongue in the beef tongue hash; the white asparagus is slightly overcooked. The biggest compliment to Lolla is the fact that these talented local chefs have succeeded in coming up with such innovative and good western dishes, even better than at restaurants headed by western chefs. Excellent service. I prefer to eat at the counter, and watch/talk to the chefs, rather than at the big communal table in the basement; you also get the dishes directly from the chefs! Pricey, but worth it! No Nonya dishes cooked with canola but Lolla is still lollapalooza
