Embracing current food trends while also staying true to ancient recipes, you can expect to find everything from Mulan’cheon meat fries of straight-cut SPAM fries tossed with Asian spices to Nyonya ‘Pongteh’ braised pork belly slices served with fluffy garlic mash, caramelized onions & their trademark sixty-WAN degree egg on the menu at this cool eatery.
The menu at WAN • 玩晚碗 Singapore is so intriguing that you’ll find yourself wishing you could order one of every single dish on offer. The team behind this inventive bar and restaurant certainly know a thing or two about crafting excellent dishes that pack a flavourful punch and that you won’t find anywhere else in Promenade or Singapore, for that matter. Situated in the buzzing complex of SunTec City on Temasek Boulevard, WAN is the go-to bar for traditional Asian dishes with a modern twist – and their cocktails ain’t half bad either!
If you’re heading to this Promenade hotspot for a bite to eat accompanied by some excellent wine, cocktails or shooters allow us to suggest a few of our favourite menu items... Vegetarians will love the WAN’s signature Asian take on poutine Seoul Jajang bomb fries doused with Korean jajang (sweet black bean sauce with vegetables) & covered gooey mozzarella. If you’re fond of fish or seafood, be sure to try the Salted Egg Yolk Fish Skins; the crispy prawn fritters with Asian herb-infused batter coated in a spicy local chilli crab gravy and the Lion City topshell served with shallots, chilli & WAN’s secret signature sauce. Meat-lovers will enjoy tucking into dishes such as Crouching Tiger beef donburi of char-grilled ribeye dry-rubbed with lemongrass and spices blend, served with pickled mustard greens or the Indomie-flavoured buttermilk fried chicken served with truffle fries & creamy Asian achar-slaw. As you can see the food offering at Singapore’s WAN makes it quite the popular spot, so we strongly recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
The staff were very friendly, but not very attentive perhaps because of the lack of staff working (and it was a busy night)! An order was forgotten, but the other items were served rather fast. Food was great and price was reasonable, although the mantou dip was rather pricey at a price of $9++ for 4 extra small mantous.
We waited for > half an hr for our drinks - lager & red wine. our latter order of 2 pint of beers came b4 the lager and wine.
