A relaxed bistro set amongst a cluster of black-and-white colonial houses, with a gorgeous alfresco space and a charming upstairs dining room. Creations range from Maryland crab cake with red coconut curry coulis to more substantial options such as braised beef short rib with smoked cauliflower. It’s a great date spot, and boasts a compact cocktail list of well-executed drinks.
The buzz: Krish at Rochester Park is no more. In its place is a more relaxed bistro offering, five-week-old Nosh, in the same appealing black-and-white colonial house.
The vibe: It wasn’t broke so they haven’t fixed it. The gorgeous al fresco space is still there, so is the charming upstairs dining room, adorned with a kitchen feature wall, complete with pans and culinary utensils galore.
The food: Randy Torres, one of our favorite hot male chefs, is responsible for new creations with appetisers like creole prawns ($16), spiced pork belly($15) and beef tartare ($18) with mains such as their mushroom Risotto($26) and roasted vegetable & sesame salad ($8), alongside more substantial options such as their pan-fried snapper($32).
The drinks: You can head on to their cafe-bar, Noshery located in the same bungalow for an open beer garden with their bottled beer and ciders offered like the carlton pure blonde ($12), bulmers magners original ($13) and draught beer like nitachino nest white ale ($16 for a pint) along with wine like san't elena,2013 ($14 per glass).
Why you’ll be back: It’s a fab date spot, even if you have to drag your mom along.
Eat this at Nosh: Maryland crab cakes. It's one of I-S Magazine's 50 things to eat in Singapore before you die (2012).
