Believing that food doesn’t have to be complicated to be enjoyed, :pluck is a restaurant down Singapore’s Club Street that’s gusty and unpretentious. It’s an Asian casual kitchen & bar that features an open kitchen and carries open mindset towards food. It’s where uncomplicated interpretations of classic dishes are served up to the delight of the city’s cosmopolitan palates. :pluck layers local and regional flavours that will bring a smile to everyone's face and by that we mean current head chef, Nicholas Teo, stamps his gastronomic mark with new signature dishes like Thai-inspired tom yum cereal salmon and spicy beef ribeye.
The Establishment’s Brandon Teo cut his teeth (and a good many ingredients) working alongside luminaries of the culinary world like Andrew Walsh, Karl Dobbler, Julien Royer and Ebbe Vollmer. His frank and fresh approach to global cuisine has garnered his various restaurants and passion projects effusive praise from critics and diners, and :pluck is no exception. Offering both lunch and dinnertime menus, :pluck takes perennial classics and gives them a creative twist.
Combining an array of international influences, at lunchtime head to :pluck to fuel up for the day with the When You Missed Breakfast (scrambled, slow-cooked or sunny side up eggs, bacon and brioche, roasted veggies and pork sausages) or go for something healthy but equally as delicious like the Good Health Binge (a salt-baked beetroot, pine nut pauline, housemade whipped ricotta and watercress salad). Come evening time, you could chow down on some cosmopolitan interpretations of comfort food classics like the fried chicken, the Asian lobster roll (oriental lobster, Asian soy ginger dressing, ebi sakura shrimps, seaweed butter in a housemade brioche bun) or the biryani (24hr braised spiced beef cheeks, basmati rice and homemade achar pickles). Serving up unpretentious fare in a stylish yet casual setting, this social restaurant can fill up quick – book ahead and avoid having to wait!
Nice and friendly staffs! Serving of food wasn't too quick nor too slow, was given a counter seat and same time the area wasn't too oily. Highly recommended!
Nice experience, ambient was nice. Used the 'Snatch' app for 1-for-1 deal, and had the Salted Egg Wings and Deep-fried Tako (which is Octopus). A nice place to chill after the end of the day.
Attentive service, great recommendations and delicious food! I had the Tom yum cereal with salmon (the meat was so soft and well cooked), and scallop ceviche (so good and it melts in your mouth)! Must-try for a cool spin on classic dishes. :)
