Tucked away at the back of café Windowsill Pies, this spot is a little cutesy but the food is a breath of fresh air. As the name suggests, the menu changes every two weeks, and each edition centers around a different theme. But from the color-coded Orange and Green—a mix of carrots and caramel from the “salad” edition—to the scotch eggs with curry mayo from the “poultry” round, everything we’ve tried here has been thoughtful and well-balanced, showcasing a level of technical skill rarely seen at such casual joints.

Tucked away at the back of Windowsill Pies, this spot is a little cutesy (a fake pine tree, miniature stage and pastel-colored Smeg refrigerators figure large in the decor) but the food is a breath of fresh air in this celeb chef worshipping city.

As the name suggests, the menu changes every two weeks, and each edition centers on a different theme. We love how the young guns in the kitchen (brothers Jonathan and Sean Gwee) offer experimental cuisine at an affordable price (from $4 for starters, from $14 for mains). Plus, they get up-and-coming industry-folk to guest chef too. Most recently, they had Abel Su (formerly of Jaan) in to cook to the theme “smoked/charred”.

And though the offerings change frequently, the grub has been reliably delicious every time we've visited. From the color-coded Orange and Green—a mix of carrots and caramel from the “salad” edition—to the scotch eggs with curry mayo from the “poultry” round, everything we’ve tried here has been thoughtful and well-balanced, showcasing a level of technical skill rarely seen at such casual joints.

We love the unconventional menu. But if you’re more of the old reliable type, fear not as the brothers are planning on reintroducing some of their greatest hits (including a real toothsome chicken heart and octopus pasta) as permanent menu fixtures.

Come here for a conceptual and fun meal: It’s a pure thrill getting a new experience every time you visit.
