About Monochrome Fusion Bistro

Black. White. Yin. Yang. East. West. These dualities converge in an understated demonstration of culinary prowess at Monochrome Fusion Bistro’s South Bridge Road premises, whose Chinatown location is exceedingly appropriate for a fusion bistro in as pluralistic a city as Singapore. Founded by three enterprising friends with the goal of bringing adventurous fusion cuisine, contemporary design, and a place to unwind to Singapore’s working masses, Monochrome is a stunning example of how the mantra less is more can be implemented when it comes to fine dining.

More about Monochrome Fusion Bistro, Singapore

The decor at Monochrome works to about as simple a theme as you could wish for: black and white throughout. Some may think this sounds oppressive, but it’s actually cosmic and timeless in its simplicity. Think harder – there’s little to distract you before your food arrives – and Monochrome’s monochromatic theme begins to make sense. Here you sit, in a restaurant down South Bridge Road (European legacy) in Singapore’s Chinatown (Asian heritage) about to indulge in Eastern-Western fusion cuisine… that’s right, far from being a hollow, non-dimensional, acultural gesture, Monochrome is, as subtle as a smiling Buddha, building in a reference to the concept(s) of yin and yang into the very furniture. It’s all about balance, see?

Besides the striking optical illusion you experience when stepping into Monochrome’s totally black and white premises down South Bridge Road, this fusion restaurant’s offering is almost hallucinatory in its delicious simplicity. Starters, sides, mains, and desserts, are pruned to an absolute minimum – no filler, no fuss. What you get from this Chinatown concept restaurant’s kitchen are beautifully presented, considered dishes like the Monochrome B&W Chorizo Meatballs (yin; the yang being Monochrome B&W Chicken Meatballs), Thai Sauce Coated House Wings, Monochrome Squid Ink Risotto (bet the design team love that one), and the Black Velvet Cake. Aimed firmly at Singapore residents looking to find balance when it comes to work and play, Monochrome is likely to become a firm favourite among the city’s overworked, closet aesthetes.

Nice décor and friendly waiter. Very quiet on a Monday night so lacking a bit of atmosphere. Menu quite interesting but options such as the fish and chips could have been done in a more creative way in the spirit of a true fusion restaurant - maybe served with truffle fries rather than French fries. Only one cocktail on the menu and they had run out of tequila so it wasn't available.

Food was good and I believe the boss (presume since he was great) was really very friendly and great. My friend and I had 3 mains and 1 side and finishing off with a great dessert! But they were great, and wine promotion made it really worth the value!

Friendly staff. Good place for catch ups as it is not overly crowded and noisy. A place for good desserts. A pity we didn't get to try the sticky date pudding.

While the food was pretty good, the time it took to serve was incredibly long for lunch considering the place had only 3 groups of people when we went.
