Fresh, clean and calming – these are the words that come to mind when visiting Wild Rocket in Singapore. Since 2005, the restaurant has served up innovative mod Sin – that’s modern Singaporean cuisine, a term coined by Wild Rocket’s chef-owner and the brains behind Willin Low – and creative Asian fusion dishes and Singaporean-style fresh pasta to Singapore’s huge foodie scene. Situated on Upper Wilkie Road at Mt Emily Park, close to Little India and Rochor MRT station, this restaurant with its Japanese-teahouse inspired setting makes for a truly unique place to dine. Book ahead to avoid a wait at this hugely popular Rochor restaurant.
Dear diners, for same-day reservations, for groups of more than 8 people, or to book an omakase menu, please contact the restaurant directly. Thank you!
Trailblazers of the mod Sin movement, the folks behind Wild Rocket are leading the way in Singapore’s contemporary dining scene. This stunning dining destination puts freshness first, utilising the best local produce in the kitchen, time-honoured recipes and decades of expertise. Modelled after a chashitsu, a Japanese teahouse, the restaurant boasts a gorgeous carapace made up of 15,000 meranti beams, serving both as a work of art and a unique shade from the hot Singapore sun. Everything at this mod sin restaurant is designed and produced in Singapore, from the pendant lights to the staff uniforms – Wild Rocket is a place that exemplifies the natural wonder of Singapore, both aesthetically and culinarily.
Executive chef Willin spent eight years as a lawyer before making his dream of opening a restaurant a reality at his brainchild, Wild Rocket. His contribution to contemporary Singaporean dining is evident in the many designations he has been awarded over the years in numerous international publications and culinary magazines. The food at Wild Rocket reflects the stunning diversity of local Singaporean cuisine, with dishes from the a la carte menu such as laksa pesto linguine with king prawns, baked flounder with dao cheo Chinese miso vinaigrette and Iberico pork char siew with Shanghai kao cai and quinoa showcasing the range of unique produce, meats and herbs available in the city-state. There are many more culinary gems to uncover at Wild Rocket. We recommend reserving ahead before visiting this highly esteemed restaurant on Rochor’s Upper Wilkie Road, close to Rochor and Upper Wilkie Road stations.
The nine course meal was awesome. Chef Willin's imagination and personification of local food into his very own creation that was splendid to Sadly though, the waiting time was a wee bit too long. Sad that I could not get a photo with him.
The food was really unique and tasted very good. The pork Jowl was done just right. The very special chendol gave a perfect ending to the excellent lunch.
always consistently good at wild rockets. There is not a dish that we dont like. It's a shame that it is closing down. also a shame that it wasnt awarded any michelin mention
Please try this place before it closes. It's like going on a Singapore food tour without really going anywhere. All the best of local food in one sitting. Will eat again.
Glad to have finally tried Wild Rocket albeit during their last hurrah (today is its final curtain call after a good long 13-year run, a rarity in this industry nowadays) by Mod-Sin cuisine pioneer Chef Willin Low. I appreciated his innovative interpretation of heritage Singaporean staples like “Giam Chye Ar” - duck and mustard green consommé with delightfully morish morsels of foie gras ravioli, “Bah Chor Mee” - sambal minced pork bee tai mak (rat rice noodles) topped with onsen egg, “Ter Kah Chor” - gelée of black vinegar enveloping fork tender iberico pork jowl with pickled cabbage on a bed of chestnut puree; yet most surprisingly, it was dessert that won me over (I don’t usually have a sweet tooth) - the signature Chendol with its individual components of refreshing coconut ice cream, rich Gula Melaka, crunchy biscuit and soft azuki beans all coming together in a perfect play of textures centred around a properly done pandan panna cotta. Notwithstanding the modern take on these local dishes, the flavours were certainly nailed down pat with retaining reminiscence.
My partner and I had a lovely dinner at Wild Rocket. The food was just great and the wine was delicious. Very happy that we took one dinner set and ordered a main from the ala carte. The main was a sea bass in a laksa type sauce that was just amazing and the lychee sorbet was just great. If i could fault anything, it would the portions, it was too petite for a hungry man.
Wild Rocket offers through its culinary creations the uniqueness of Singapore and her cuisines. It is modern, traditional, filled with senses imbued from Willin Low’s simple infusion of tastes and sights. Each a wonder to behold and savour.
Had lunch with girlfriend. Quiet minimalist interior . Service was efficient and good. Our server was knowledgeable about menu and very helpful advising coriander and garlic free choices. We both had 4 course set lunch with different options so we could sample across menu. Portions were dainty, well presented and tasty modsin style. The mushroom ravioli soup and buah keluak pasta were flavourful but much too salty.Need to balance and accentuate ingredients natural taste . Would recommend and go again.
The food was very creative and tasty, but the portions are small which we knew about so don’t go expecting to leave full. We would have rated it higher except for the service. Our server forgot to bring our wine and only came around once to refill. He also forgot to have a starter plate specially prepared so for the price and small number of tables, the service was lacking.
Our second time at Wild Rocket. Food and staff excellent both times. A wonderful dining experience. We had friends from Australia join us and they were all impressed.
