Spotting a black and white decor, Monochrome Fusion Bistro along South Bridge Road offers a dining experience inspired to provide diners with a gastronomic journey of the East and West. On a weekday night that I visited the place, it seems the place is quite popular with the young crowd.
Threesome Wing It 4/5
We started the night with threesome which was very enjoyable. I mean the Threesome Wings It ($16) with the three flavours Honey Oat, Chilli Crab and Favourite House Wings all in a basket. The chicken has a nice exterior crisp, plump and juicy. Out of the three flavours, my favorite is the honey oat, I enjoyed how the sweetness complemented the crispy chicken while the oat gives it an extra crunch. They also sells each individual flavour separately if you are too share to have threesome at $9 per dish
Juicy Pork Belly Pizza 3.5/5
Monochrome offers a couple of pizza selection on the menu and we decided to try the Juicy Pork Belly Piza ($22). Topped with braised pork belly, mayonnaise, caramelized onions, cucumber and sliced red chilli, this is an unique and delightful combination thin crust pizza.
Squid Ink Risotto 4.2/5
The highlight of the dinner has to be the Squid Ink Risotto ($23) with pan seared scallops, crunchy quinoa, parmesan cheese, edamame beans and alfalfa sprouts. Cooked in a flavourful stock, the grains has absorbed the beautiful flavours on top of the al dente grains. The addition of crunchy quinoa, edamame beans and alfalfa sprouts provided the extra texture.
Oven Roasted Chicken 3.5/5
For something more substantial, there is the Oven Roasted Chicken ($23) that is roasted till golden brown and served with a choice of criss-cut fries or fluffy mash potato. The dish may not shout out but it did come across moist and tender.
I left the dinner feeling that I have a satisfactory meal. I did observe that there were a mix of young crowd such as dating couple, friends gathering at the bistro. However I did feel a bit old and out of place at the bistro. Nevertheless, the food is worthy a visit.
