    Wild Rocket is a mix of a younger, trendsetting crowd and luscious food

Considering that Singapore is short of truly stylish restaurants, Wild Rocket, located at hip budget hotel Hangout @ Mount Emily, can only be a good thing. Its mix of a younger, trendsetting crowd and luscious food, courtesy of Chef Willin Low, is a breath of fresh air. However, Wild Rocket is by no means the most popular dining spot in town (not yet anyway), as its relatively inaccessible location up a hill makes it a tough spot for those who don’t drive. But pay this small establishment a visit, and you won’t be disappointed. The ambiance is classy, replete with white-washed walls and mood lighting, and the crowd is colorful. The food here is equally vibrant, with signature dishes including the laksa pesto spaghetti with quail eggs, seabass with baby kale flowers and crabmeat linguine with light tomato cream sauce. The latter, especially, is a rich and luxurious dish that is elegant in its presentation, and yummy all the same. Granted, portions are a bit small, but the weight- and fashion-conscious certainly won’t mind. Starters, such as the pan-seared tuna with rocket salad, are a step up above many restaurants in town, as are the desserts. We recommend the strawberry cheesecake with maple walnut ice cream and dark lava chocolate gateau with flambé banana, which are to die for. The gateau is an absolute delight as it is lightly baked, and oozes rich thick chocolate sauce with every bite—ooh la la. We’ll be back for more.


This review was written when Wild Rocket first opened in 2006. It has since undergone a renovation.
