Set lunches started off with soup of the day featuring cream of mushroom.Fragrant and light with cream. Croutons were added as well and texture of the soup was simply smooth. The bowl of mushroom soup had swept my feet off.
The mini striploin set lunch was simple and straight froward, served with herbs and shoestrings fries. With our choice of done-ness on the mini beef, the medium striploin looks abit deceiving at its external.
Its sizzling dark brown color with 2 pieces of melting butter looked as though it was thoroughly cooked but dont judge the book by its cover. Juices were seen yielding as we lend the culinary knife cuts into it. The done-ness was way perfect!
Over to the pan fried Salmon lunch set which seems pleasantly attractive as compared to the earlier dish. Salmon was perfectly pan fried with crispy skin and juicy fleash, featuring a contrast of texture in each decadent bite. Salmon dish was completed with grilled tomatoes, garden salad and smashed potatoes.
Be itbrunch or lunch, I have enjoyed both hearty meals provided by W39.The place may be a little quiet during weekdays and surprisingly fully pack on the weekends. Reservation is recommended unless you don't mind sitting at the outdoors enjoying the rays from the sun.

I feel that W39 Bistro was just a normal Bistro. Nothing to rave about really. A personal visit done just last weekend was... almost disappointing. I think all the A++ reviews given were not exactly accurate. Maybe I just happened to experience this just that weekend, who knows?
What I can say is, the Mee Siam was not too bad. Definitely above average. But price? It could be better. 3 times more compared to the how much a bowl of Mee Siam would cost in a normal foodcourt. The Hearty breakfast was what most people ordered. Maybe that was what they were known for. Mushroom soup... $6.90 for a very and i mean very, small bowl.
Service? - Do not expect service. Most of them are young teenagers who can't remember the menu or what the bistro serves. What I experienced? A simple "Do you have this?" and she replied, "I don't know" while Chewing on something.
Ambience and layout? It was small, cutely designed and a little vintage.
It was not too bad, I'm happy I made a visit but I won't be going back.
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
