With its stylish, inviting interiors and chic vibe, casual fine dining restaurant CreatureS is the epitome of “chill-lux”. Tucked away along Desker Road, the award-winning dining enclave presents hearty modern Asian comfort fare with a twist and peppered with local influences. Highlights include the Hainanese Uncle Han & Hatsumomo Katsudon ($24) with strips of tender pork chop pan-fried Hainanese-styled on a bed of Japanese short-grain rice, layered with scallions, topped with an onsen egg, and served with a local Singaporean curry gravy to give it a little kick. Think: Japanese pork chop rice meets Hainanese “Scissor’s Cut Rice”. There is also the unusual dish named Italian Godfather “Yong Tau Foo” & An Ma Noodles ($22) that has chilli, aubergine and okra stuffed with herb feta cheese then drizzled with balsamisco dressing and accompanied by la-mien tossed in fried shallot and light soy. Meatless, playful and strangely tempting. If you are feeling less adventurous, their signature CreatureS Crayfish Hokkien Mee ($30) will hit the right spot. Wok-fried noodles enriched with a fragrant prawn stock and served with fresh crayfish, tiger prawns, squid, crispy pork lard, Japanese fish roe and home-made sambal belachan. So good.
CreatureS has also opened its second restaurant concept, TEASE by CreatureS, in Beijing, China in February 2019, do check them out if you are there and missing food from home.
