Service was fast, ambience was good and the food was yummy and affordable. My personal favourite to-go place for poke bowls! My third return visit here.
Loved the food at alter ego! The grilled cheese pulled pork sandwich was awesome. We ordered two servings. Try the poke bowl and iced mocha too!
2nd visit and this is going to be my pre concert dinning joint!!! ordered the double patty burger and pulled pork sandwich... and sat through a 2.5 hours forbidden city by Kit Chan... feels like in heaven already!
One of my fav food place as usual, though I didn't get the table of choice as requested. But quality of food is definitely more important.
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!
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.
Being a vegan I was delighted to find a restaurant serving a vegan option for my pre-theatre dinner. I had the Green Goddess Bowl which was a satisfying mix of avocado, kimchi, brown rice, and pomegranate. I added spicy roasted cashews for an extra $2, and they added crunch and spice to my meal. They also served my favourite Chai Rebel coconut mylk! My friends had the other Poke bowls and they all enjoyed their food. We also ordered both smoothie bowls and the cacao one was the nicer if the two - but then chocolate always wins when it comes to dessert! Both were not too sweet and tasted very healthy. Reservations recommended as they were quite busy! Best place for a healthy guilt free meal at Esplanade in my opinion.
It was a great experience! We made a reservation so we didn't have to wait. The staff were prompt to serving us and the food was delicious. It was really lively within the restaurant and we didn't mind one bit. The price was slightly on the high side. But overall I would recommend Alter Ego.
Came here to celebrate my friend's birthday! The staff were very eager to help me out in this so kudos for that. The birthday girl enjoyed her grilled cheese (FOR ULTIMATE CHEESE LOVERS) as did I, and we all loved the fried fish skin. Buffalo wings are a tad monotonous with a single layer of flavour - sour-spicy, that never graduated into a different taste, so skip that. Service-wise, there's a lack of clear floor management and procedure - the staff forgot to pass us our water and we had to ask thrice before another server got it for us very apologetically. It's also slightly unhygienic to be served water from a flask on the ground. What saved the day - nice food, servers were still very friendly and we pulled off the surprise successfully so thank you! I tried to be fair in this review, hope this helps y'all target what to improve!
Very nice ambience in the restaurant and the food was awesome! Small and cosy for a dinner gathering with friends. All the food recommendations were so good and to top it off, the happy hour was perfect! I would highly recommend my friends to try Alter Ego!
everything was great! service was fast and efficient, especially love the pizza fries there. After making payment, one of the staff told us "Hope to see you guys back at Alter Ego again!" and I felt that this was a good gesture.
My dining experience was good until the part where the service crew did not mention that there was credit card promotion. I had to find out when I walked over to the cashier to order my takeaway. Next thing, my takeaway took half hour. When I asked the crew, he went into the kitchen and he told me that there was a mixed up in order thus there was a delay. I could see the look in the crew's faces and it was a case of order not done at all. I would have appreciated the honesty rather than lying to my face. The crew did not even do any service recovery by offering anything other than a glass of water. The service needs work.
Alter Ego is an excellent after work dinner place. The restaurant was packed as it was a Friday night. The food was really good and filling, we ordered the poke bowls and various sides to share. I will definitely come again!
We love it here! I was here a few days ago and I came here again with some other friends after trying. I love the fact that we can get the eat clean and eat dirty menu because we can accommodate people of different eating diet. the eat clean menu ends at 8pm (even though the website and a lot of reviews claim that it doesn't serve eat clean food in the evening!) love the atmosphere
Ordered the umami poke bowl, juicy lucy burger as well as the pizza fries. I've to say its my first time there but will definitely not be the last. The pizza fries, albeit took super long to arrive (after i finished my mains) was super mind blowing. The cheese on top of the fries were really generous and complements well. However the fries itself was a little on the hard side. The poke bowl and burger were fantastic though. Cant wait to try our other food on the menu :)
The food overall was great and the service was pretty fast. Our drinks, pokebowl and appetizers arrive shortly after we placed our orders. The staff were quite attentive to the customers although we waited a little more for our bill before another waiter noticed us. I guess the first waiter we approached was busy taking new orders and kind of forgotten us getting out bill. But the ambience was great, it's good place to chill and relax on a Saturday night. Will definitely visit again in future :)
Friendly staff. Food didn't wow me. Personally found desserts lack lustre where it isn't interesting. The staff got the orders wrong 3 times. First they served the loaded taters with bacon (when we asked for it to be separated), then they change the order but forgot to serve the separate dish of bacon, and served a wrong dish of main to our table. We were a table of 4 and ordered 2 poke bowls, a main, 2 drinks, had 4 glasses of water on the table and was still waiting for another friend. The table was getting horribly and impractically crowded with no space left but yet they didn't offer a change of tables. We had to request and also correct the wrong orders. I would think attention to details, besides being friendly is important.
First experience with Alter Ego for my bday! Staff on duty were all efficient and welcoming. Side note, Thank you for arranging the glass panel low seats, i enjoyed the little fireworks!
Ambience of restaurant was hip and friendly from the first step in! Menu offered was perfectly curated from a group to share or even for yourself. Special thanks and thumbs up to Ash, the guy who took care of us, he was really warm, delivered great hospitality to guests and recommended good plates to us! Thank u guys, keep up the awesome work!!!
It is a great place to hang out, have drinks and chill with friends, but I somehow wished that there was more variety in their food options. The original poke shaker bowl had a great mix of ingredients in it, but perhaps wasn't too much of a hearty meal. Would be a great option if you're in the mood for light eating/dieting. Grilled cheese sandwich, loaded taters and chicken skin was great-tasting and good for communal eating 😋 overall cost on the higher side for the small portions
We had the original poke bowl which was delicious and had a generous serving. The tater tots were really yummy too. Service was prompt and attentive. Had a good time at Alter Ego. Thanks guys!
Food was good. Only blip was when ordered a particular type of cider (which they did not have and had been replaced with another brand), the server did not inform me and processed my order with the new cider. I was only later informed by another server when the pint had already been prepared. Overall, will still go back because the food is pretty yums :)
Ambience is great. Opt for alfresco dining if you prefer to have a conversation with your friends. Had the dirty menu as it was past 9pm. Grilled cheese with tomato soup by the side is highly recommended. The only downside is that the service crew are not as attentive to the alfresco tables and we had a hard time trying to get any attention.
Good ambience and customer service. The service staff were attentive and the food was good! We ordered Poke Bowl (MUST TRY), Beef patty burger and Cilantro wings. My friend and I enjoyed ourselves there and we will definitely go back again and to try out their Smoothie Bowl! :)
Generally great food, ambience and service. Would highly recommend the Pizza fries and Seafood Gumbo. Poke bowl was a tad bland and they didn't have extra seasoning or condiments to make up for it. They gave me extra pizza fries sauce which was a bit weird but no choice. Would come back here again for the fries!
Great service, good food. I would come back here again and recommend this to others. Thank you the crew at Alter Ego for the pleasant night last night
My friends and I agreed that the poke bowls are really good. But the sinful appetizers were so-so (we have fries pizza and pulled pork dip). Loving the long happy hour as well although the selections were limited. Would strongly recommend to do reservation early since almost all tables are reserved, even the high stool bars.
Food was good but service was slow for a non crowded restaurant. The service staff could have managed our expectations by letting us know in advance about the longer waiting time. Food could also have been served together rather than 20 minutes apart due to different preparation time. But I'll still return for the food.
Enjoyed the refreshing poké bowls and sinfully good grilled cheese sandwich. There was a slightly overbearing service staff that pressed us to purchase drinks and somehow added a drink to our bill when we did not order it. Would appreciate it if that particular service staff refrained from such hard-sell tactics in future. That aside, food and ambience were great, would certainly return.
It's my first time at Alter Ego after much ravings. Unfortunately, it didn't impress me and would not return for a second visit. Service was slow and the cilantro lime wings was horrible; taste of frozen chicken and the texture was soft instead of crispy which really turned me off from eating more. Other than that, the poke bowls and chips were a-okay.
Food was really good, I enjoyed the ribs/cheese sandwich and pizza fries very much. I would definitely go back again. We also had a poke bowl which was decent.. I guess they could probably have a wider selection of desserts?
Nice bar ambience, love the decor and service is really good! Menu is split into Naughty and Nice so you have the option of healthy or a little more decadent. LOVE the beef grilled cheese sandwich, its The Bombbb
Ambience is good for 3-4 friends to catch up. Poke bowls is good and the finger food is good to share with friends and nice to go along with beer. It be good to add on more main meals to the existing menu. Cheers (",)
i was lucky to get my hands on a poke bowl! it was perfectly mixed with the ingredients! many customers after me left cos they have stopped selling them for the night! fantastic food, laidback ambience and of cos the good service by the staff!
Not really ideal for big groups as the tables are big and it can get quite noisy indoors. Would go again in a smaller group for a smaller table so we won't have to shout across to each other. Food was okay, service was okay. Not a very memorable experience. Would try it again next time.
Great food and great vibes. Must try: pizza fries, fried chicken skin and shortrib sandwich. You'll wanna enjoy the walk outside towards Jubilee Bridge before dinner and enjoy the sunset too ;) Nice spot for a date.
Excellent service with super polite staff! A few of the appetisers I ordered were sprinkled with paprika, which was a tad too spicy for me; food was yummy though. Thumbs up! Will definitely be there again :)
We had the poke bowl, grilled cheese, pulled pork dip and the fish skin ! Food was good,especially the grilled cheese - our comfort food . Definitely will be back, hope to see more new items on the menu though. especially clean eats :)
Reservation was screwed up. Reserved at 7.30pm but was fully booked. Had to come at 8.30pm instead. Barely sat for long, informed us that they are taking last orders for poke bowls. Ingredients ran out for our bowls + some drinks. Had to replace / change orders. Server was confused while serving. Had no idea what drinks were what. Third time visit here but my worst. Probably might not make a visit back.
The food was amazing! Portions given were generous. I really loved the fried chicken skin. The staff were attentive and have great attitudes. It was a good experience and I will definitely recommend it to others.
The food was tasty and the service was superb! I ordered the dessert and requested for the words "Happy Birthday" written on the plate, and the restaurant was able to do so beautifully. Highly recommended!
Food - solid 5, service - solid 5. Spent average $35/head. Food is best for sharing. Grilled cheese with beef is a defo required staple; also don't underestimate how full you can get eating it! Reservations defo needed for a Friday night!
The food was really good! We tried the umami omega, wildcard poke and the chicken sandwich along with a set of carbo load. Accompanied by the amazing view of esplanade's waterfront, everything was above expectations!
The food was good and portion was just right. The jalapeños cheddar dip was great with the fries and tortilla chips. We also ordered poke and chips, Cilantro Lime Wings and pull pork dip. All were awesome and mojito is good.
The waiters served my friends and I tasty food efficiently and even ensured our cups of water were constantly refilled. Great job guys! Will be back for more good food and service for sure(:
Waitstaff lacked attentiveness as we were seated outdoors. Food was good especially so for the poke bowls. A bit slack to be told that "as we are a bar at night, you'll need to purchase drinks to be served water". Yep, didn't get any water. Food's reasonably priced though, good ambience.
The menu overall was really good;up to expectations. My only gripe was the seating and the fact that we were so close to the door that it felt even warmer then usual. Also, the ambience was off due to the poor choice of music. Was very much a distraction for me.
Really nice food. Great service staff and atmosphere. Laid back and relaxing for a nice Sunday brunch! Highly Recommend the legendary poke bowl! Would return to try the wings and craft beers soon!
The options for us who prefer decadence to clean eating (cos it's cheat day!) were great. We are grateful for the prompt food service on a Sunday afternoon, and their happy service crew.
