Quentin's the Eurasian Restaurant

AsianEuropeanFusionWestern
Eurasian aunties would be pleased with the food at Quentin’s the Eurasian Restaurant. For starters, it’s cooked by Quentin Pereira – the son of the author of ‘Robin’s Eurasian Recipes’, a cookbook book endorsed by neighbour and former First Lady, Mrs Nathan.

The best of Singaporean cooking

Forget that mod-sin rubbish, ditch the overpriced and overhyped zz-char stalls and head over to Quentin's for an absolutely delicous, and hearty and value for money deal.

We visited as a party of 4 and sampled a large variety of dishes.  We tried the signature Chicken Curry Devil, Pot Roast Beef, Chicken Keluak curry, Prawn Bastador, Black ink calamari and a couple of vegetable options, plus a sambal fried rice and corned beef fried rice.  

Everything was fully flavored, unique, hearty and generously proportioned.  In particular, I loved the beef dish, as well as the amazing black ink calamari - that dish made me want to get all the carbs I could find and dunk it into the savory ink sauce.  This dish makes 80 dollar squid ink paellas and 30 dollar pastas look like a sad joke.  The ingredients were fresh and everything screamed quality, quality, quality.

Kudos to the chef, to be able to create such flavors.  To me, this is truly the best of Singaporean cooking.  Quentin's definitely deserves more publicity and celebration. Diners are lucky to be able to taste this food in such a welcoming family setting and at such reasonable prices.

Fabulous Food! Highly recommended!

Went over using the deal vouchers and was impressed with my colleagues. May have to wait for a short while for the food but it was fab! Location a bit úlu' (far) to my opinion but again, for the food? Worth it!

Defo must try is the Cambrang Bostador (Prawn Curry) yum! Will be back with or without the deal promo. Not to forget, the service staff, they were welcoming and friendly. Great eve!

Great place

Had sunday lunch here in Feb 2014. Great ambience to relax. I believe it's more cosy on weekend nights to have a drink or two

A truly unique gastronomic experience

As a Singaporean, i am quite ashamed to say that i have not known about Eurasians let alone their unique cuisine until a friend of mine who is a regular patron at Quentin's finally brought me along for dinner last Friday.  Quentin's is the only full-fledged Eurasian restaurant in Singapore-with of course a modern twist to some of its dishes.  Their "Oxtail Curry Debal" is to die for!!! It is without a doubt very sinful but hey, You only live once, so if you want to indulge yourself, indulge on the good stuff.  we also tried the "Prawn bostador" which, as what the waitress informed us, literally means "slap" in creole Portuguese.  and true enough, SLAP-it delivered!  The Ros Befe (Pot Roast Beef) was a incredible hit given that we had quite a variety of spicy mains, it was a good distraction from all that chilli... HOT HOT HOT.. and did i mention that they have a good range of Portuguese wines?!  We were informed by the waitstaff that they only carry Portuguese wine! (by the way they also served Portuguese beer!)  as the theme of the evening was SOMETHING NEW, we went for the GREEN WINE. As we were promised that it goes really well with our food choice, and so with that much good stuff, how can a night go wrong?  and yes, in line with the heritage food, you can also view the showcases at level 1 and 4.  entrance is free. we did visit the showcases while waiting for our food and from then on, we were educated...  by the way, if you guys are intending to go there for a makan feast, i suggest you call in advance as the air conditioned room seats is limited. trust me, you dont want to be outside, sweating profusely from all that chilli!

We learned that they actually have an acoustic band every friday night. which is tres cool coz if you've been there you will understand my point. the place is really cozy, peaceful and undeniably charming.  nuf said, go check it out for yourself!

Lovely Eurasian food of the Portuguese variety

Having extensively travelled in Goa (my wife is originally from Goa) and loving the Portuguese influenced Goan food, Quentin's was like a slice of Goa but with its own local twist.

The restaurant is housed in the Eurasian Community centre off Dunman Road, and has a very private quiet setting. There are no malls or crowds but just a patch of grass in between the restaurant and the road. As you enter, there are photos of old Singapore and writings on the history of the Eurasian people in Singapore. 

The food is delicious. The croquettes remind me of homemade cutlets. The devil's curry and fired okra is especially delectable and something we have almost always. 

Prices are quite reasonable too. It's also a great setting for a beer, or to hang out with a large group or with family. 

If you want to try some authentic Eurasian food, you should try Quentin's which is run by Quentin Pereira. 

Great food and an enjoyable experience always!
