Local delights with a cosy and serene ambience

I would usually have casual lunches at this restaurant because the pricing is not too hefty yet the ambience is chic and food is consistently good.

 

My usual recommendations would be the Mama leong’s chicken rice, bak kut teh as well as the seafood consommé. Some may find the mama leong’s chicken rice a tad too pricy, but I reckon that it can’t be compared to those you find at hawker centres. The chicken meat is poached well with a find balance between the skin and meat.

 

The lamb bak kut teh is another hot favourite. Unlike the commonly found pork ribs bak kut teh, Space uses Lamb rack. The broth is thick and savoury while the meat is so tender.

 

Lastly, the claypot crabmeat and shrimp consommé is my personal favourite. At just $12, the consommé is extremely fragrant as it is packed with a load of seafood. Heartwarming dish especially good during cold weather or if you are feeling a tad off.

 

Highly recommend this restaurant. Prices are affordable ranging from $10 to $14.

Was staying in nearby Conrad for the weekend but didn't fancy anything too elaborate for dinner so settled for a quick meal at Space @ My Humble House at the Esplanade.

Playing neighbour to it's more illustrious sibling, My Humble House (which by the way didn't quite impress me on my previous visit), Space has a nice modern, minimalistic vibe to it - definitely not some place you would expect to find local favourites like chicken rice, hokkien mee and the likes. But at a premium of course.

Mama Leong's Chicken Rice - Apparently this humble dish was named after Sam Leong's mum. And I thought it was good - tender, moist and seeping with flavour. You have the option of ordering an entire chicken ($32), half a chicken ($18) and single portion @ $12. Rice is an additional $1/head and though fragrant and seemingly prudent with the oil, lacked the fluffiness that I would have liked.

Fried Radish Cake with Freshly-peeled Crabmeat, Whole Prawns, Juicy Scallops and Egg - I loved the extravagance of this dish - huge prawns and scallops coupled with copious amount of egg. However it lacked the slightly charred taste and came across as bland. Somehow everything just didn't seem to meld together. The radish cake wasn't exactly smooth and silky either.

A quick meal of local dishes cost us to the tune of $48 (inclusive of a small cup of watermleon juice @ $6). The chicken rice was good but the radish cake only made it to average based on the merit of the prawns and scallops; without which, it would have languished at the bottom half of the scale. Service was decent but hardly a selling point.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
