Good food, good price, good location. I tried one of the poke bowls for main and cookies and cream for dessert. Was not disappointed, everything sounds as good as advertised on the menu. Good price/quality relation.
Really love the experience! Both the food and staff were wonderful! Though their iced tea had an acquired taste which they should relook, else it is one place I will definitely want to go back too :)
Great service and great view of the Bay. Will definitely come back for the beer and the view. We got the table that we wanted.
Excellent food, service and view. Loved the poke bowls, will be back
Welcoming service with friendly and attentive staff, along with great food and ambience. Lunch sets are also available on weekdays, at a pocket-friendly pricing of $15.90 onwards with a main and drink. I decided to go for the ala carte menu and ordered the Southern fried chicken sandwich (which turned out to be a burger instead), cornflake french toast and loaded taters. My favourite dish among all was the southern fried chicken burger which comes with a huge slab of deep fried chicken thigh topped with nacho cheese and ranch sauce, sandwiched between soft buttered brioche buns. It also comes with a side of tangy purple slaw and honey butter cornbread that was luscious with a soft, crumbly texture resembling a pound cake. A great and sweet change from the usual fries/wedges. The loaded taters was sinful albeit enjoyable, deep fried mini bite sized hashbrowns loaded with a generous amount of spicy jalapeno cheese, sour cream, chives and bacon bits. Would prefer if the sauces are served separately though as the tater tots below had turned soggy and lost the essential crisp factor. The cornflake french toast was crisp and coated with cornflakes that provided a pleasant crunch factor, filled with a spread of white and dark salted chocolate ganache and served with butterscotch banana slices and macerated berries. The fillings of chocolate ganache could have been more though IMO, tasted pretty mediocre and akin to a typical chocolate spread without any hint of saltiness as stated. Though prices are pretty steep for the dishes here, it's worth a visit for the ambience and quality of food served!
I had an excellent time at Alter Ego. The poke bowl was wholesome and good. I just wish the chunks of fish could be larger. Also tried the pizza fries and it was very good value for the price. The cheese used for the dish wasn't the usual 'cheap' type of cheese that most eateries used so I really appreciated that. The caramelised ikan bilis tasted wonderful too though it would be good if they served it in smaller portions as it was a bit too much for two people to share. Great experience!
I'm a regular at Alter Ego since their opening. I like their poke bowl mix and it's very yummy! They just launched $15.90 lunch set, so get coffee/tea with your order! If you want also are able to eat some "sinful" but super delicious sides, be sure to try their fried chicken skin, fried fish skin or the pizza fries. You won't be disappointed. If you want more food options, try their burger also. They also serve a lot of drinks like mead, cider and other drinks. Highly recommended! 😉
I had a light pre concert dinner with two friends at Alter Ego. We shared a classic poke bowl and a belly pork sandwich. The service was friendly and efficient and the food good. The restaurant offers a large variety of beer but the wine choice is limited. I would recommend Alter Ego for a quick pre concert dinner.
Alter Ego is the brainchild of the same team behind A Poké Theory, but with another side to it - decadent, sinful and equally enjoyable. From the contrast between the pillowy bun, snappy sausages and broad flavours of the Chilli Dog, to fried chicken skin dusted with paprika that is airy and crisp, Alter Ego's offerings are well-executed versions of classic comfort foods.
It was an average experience at Alter Ego. Service was prompt and staffs were friendly. Pizza fries was good when eaten hot, it turns salty when cold. The Original Poke Shaker and Umami Omega pokebowls were not bad, Chilli cheese dog wasn't that fantastic though it was recommended by the staff. The portion for chilli cheese dog was disappointing, considering it's the same price as the salmon bowls, it came with a small portion of coleslaw & curly fries. There was a 10% discount for UOB cardholders.
