Quaint & cozy restaurant

Recently, the current craze is over japanese cod roe, aka 'mentai'. I am personally a fan of mentai too & upon hearing that five & dime offers mentai pasta, i knew that i had to try it. Pulling my partner along, we patronized Five & Dime on a quiet Monday evening and settled down for dinner. The ambience was so comfortable and cosy, the servers were welcoming & helpful. We ordered the grilled chicken, cod roe pasta & a side dish of truffle fries. Our dishes were serves promptly. I love how the truffle fries was unique in the sense that they use truffle mayo instead of usual truffle shavings/oil. It was a unique sour taste with a hint of truffle. My partner had the grilled chicken. It was served with a cup of butter corn and garden salad. I took a bite of the chicken but I found it pretty ordinary for a grilled chicken & it was nothing out of the world. I enjoyed the corn though, it was buttery enough, just the way I like it. The finale was the purpose of my visit.. mentai pasta! It was so good I slowly savoured it in small portions because I didnt want the dish to ever finish. There was a tinge of spiciness and the pasta was infused with creamy cod roe. Thumbs up! My overall experience at Five & Dime was amazing. On a side note, they even provide car lots at the back of the restaurant for convenient parking! Definitely a recommended restaurant to dine in, be it for couples or gatherings!

Went there during one of the Sunday evening dinner with a huge group of 13 pax. The service is fast and great. They remembered what each of us ordered and didnt have to ask who to serve the food to! If you love salted egg yolk like I do, you need to try out this restaurant.

I have to admit that the location is not very accessible if you are visiting by train. With two nearest MRT stations stationed in town, Five & Dime can only depend on Somerset and Dhoby Ghaut MRT Stations. Luckily, there is a bus stop directly across the road, which a little more convenience to diners, as well as a carpark just right behind the cafe.

 

Five & Dime does not have a lot of seats, so reservation is actually recommended, and they only take in reservation on every two hours (e.g. Table reservation at 2pm, 4pm, 6pm, etc.).

 

French Toast ($16.00) with choice of either crispy bacon or chicken sausages and with fruit salad. It really seems to me as a very simple dish, but their French toast is just too fluffy and the syrup with butter makes the toast not too dry yet sweet.

 

Braised Pork Belly Sandwich ($18.00), with the use of black Berkshire pork in between toasted French white and sweet potato fries at the side. I have no idea how many portions are available, but I'm glad that I am one of those trying out the limited portions!

 

Pork belly is definitely yummy, dripping with sauce on the "tough-like-rock" French white. Well, the outer is hard, but the bread itself is still quite soft and the dripping sauce is acting like a jam to me.

 

Golden Custard Lava Cake ($12.00). The only special out of the list of 5. Something like custard bun, but instead a "westernized" version. Love the soft chocolate-ty taste of the cake, mixing the sweet and saltiness together to form a smile on your lips.
