A Cozy Corner

Located at the hidden corner of Erskine Road, this boutique hotel reaches out to business travellers and hence Our Korner provides a nice mix of traditional and fusion mix to fit the different palettes.

For the explorer, try the cream of laksa clam chowder, a thick soup with a laksa after taste.

Another fusion dish that popped up was the sliders with chili crab. Now one can have chili crab without having to dirty their fingers.

Looking for something more traditional, try the char kway teow if you are into something local, and their rib eye for something more western.

End the meal with something sweet, and a local dessert to try is the puloh hitam with cream - although be aware that it can be quite heavy and rich for one to indulge by himself. Not to worry though, if you have food coma like me, one advantage of dining at Our Korner is that you can just check into a room later to sleep it out.

Interesting fusion

It really feels like a kosy korner here at Our Korner, especially when you're going there for a surprise birthday dinner. Take a nice walk from Tanjong Pagar MRT, where it's quiet and serene, pass by Maxwell Hawker Centre and up the hill to Scarlet Hotel! Feels like you've found a gem.

Back to the food, this place serves up fusion food - a mix of Singaporean/ Asian with other international cuisines. It's always interesting to have fusion because you try to figure out the influences on the dish, and the reasons behind the flavours in the dish. Here's some stuff that was found on the table that night!



Char Siu Salad ($14.90) (photo courtesy to my friend who has a knack for capturing some of the most candid moments). Barbequed chicken, poached egg, orange slices, croutons, lettuce, green apple slices, parmesan. Friend mentioned the char siu was tasty, almost like it was obtained from Maxwell, which is just next door haha.





A few Flaming Pizzas (7 inch at $14, 10 inch at $18) appeared on the table that night and the moment they did, everyone's attention immediately turned to it! Smoked duck with artichoke, sun-dried tomatoes, capsicum, mozzarella and Bacardi flambe thin crust. I felt like the cheese overwhelmed everything else, and I couldn't get enough of duck, and definitely not enough of artichokes. The flaming part is lots of fun though! Tiny hints of alcohol when you bite through the crust.



Seafood Spaghetti ($25) - garlic, prawns, squid, clams, mussels in tomato cream sauce. Looked like a hearty portion but I didn't try this!



This was my main! And I recommend it yum. It's Chili Crab Linguine ($25)!! Filled with chunks of crab meat and tossed in tomato sauce, topped with a poached egg and a tempura style soft shell crab. Mine was plated beautifully, but some of the other portions on our table didn't have crabs that stood so prim and proper atop the pasta aha.

While the pasta felt a little soggy for my liking, I did like breaking the egg over my pasta and eating it with my soft shell crab as well. The sauce was also very strongly crab flavoured! Very good and special. Try out the chili crab sliders as well! Heard pretty good reviews about it too.

Modern Singaporean Cuisine

Our Korner, a new restaurant and bar perched on the apex of Ann Siang Hill and Erskine Road started last Semptember, is a casual comfort food establishment in Scarlet Boutique Hotel.

For more photos, click here.

The menu reigns a medley of seasonal local and international influences, marrying the cornerstone of Asian favourites such as Laksa Clam Chowder ($14) which was drizzled with truffle oil served in a focaccia bread bowl. We love the combination of bread and laksa, but the strong spices from the soup covered up the taste of truffle oil, which is a pity.

A delicious spicy prawn dish bursting with flavour, high in protein and packed with chilli. The Spicy Garlic Prawns ($16) was stir fried with roasted garlic and chilli and comes in three small cups, which make it convenient for small bites.

We enjoyed the Chilli Crab Sliders ($22) thoroughly. The patty was crab meat with diced water chestnut which wasn't too dry but you can taste the generous amount of crab meat in the patty.

The patty came with mini burger buns, accompanied by signature Singapore chilli crab sauce. The chilli crab sauce was more towards the spicy side, but it sure made us crave for more!

Putting a traditional Italian dish to a twist, the Chilli Crab Linguine ($25) was tossed with crab meat in spicy tomato sauce topped with poached egg and tempura-style soft shell crab.

The Chilli Crab Linguine was bursting with rich robust flavours and every mouthful, there was generous amount of crabmeat. The deep fried soft shell crabs complemented the dish, but I felt the poached egg didn't go quite well. When mixed, the linguine came too sticky and dry.

  Colour Me pretty ($12) which was horlicks ice cream topped with colourful frosted icing cookies. It reminded me of my childhood days when I had the frosted icing cookies. They got their ice cream from a ice cream shop and it was quite good.

Some hits and misses here but we appreciate the creativity of the chef to create modern Singaporean cuisines. I Particularly like the Chilli Crab Sliders, Spicy Garlic Prawns and Laksa Clam Chowder.
