Angel & Devil Asian Fusion Bistro @ Keong Saik Road - Decent Food But Nestled In A Very Competitive F&B Area


Keong Saik Road in the modern day is known for its vibrant F&B scene with many restaurants along the stretch of shophouses. Opened back in September 2020 at the heart of Keong Saik Road without any hype, Angel & Devil Asian Fusion Bistro offers Asian-European cuisine with a range of affordable alcohols that comes as part of the experience.

Devil's Mac & Cheese 3.8/5

Our lunch started with the Devil's Mac & Cheese ($12). The generous topping of bacon bits, crispy floss, onion and cheese, gives the dish the extra layer of flavour and textural enjoyment. I felt the sweetness can be slightly reduced, to allow the cheese profile to be more prominent.

Guinness Braised Baby Pork Ribs 3.8/5

Moving to the mains, we started with the Guinness Braised Baby Pork Ribs ($32). The baby pork ribs are cooked to fork-tender with the hint of Guinness coming through but not overpowering. The coat of 5 pepper crust smartly brightens the taste profile.

Signature Cereal Crusted Baked Cod Fish 4/5

My favourite dish goes to the Signature Cereal Crusted Baked Cod Fish ($32). The superior soy broth complements excellently with the moist and buttery cod fish. I enjoyed the execution as it leans towards the familiarity of the Asian steamed fish with delightful crusted cereal coat atop the skin.

"Angel Meet Devil" Sundae 3.5/5

Suitable for sharing is the "Angel Meet Devil" Sundae ($15). I am not sure why the name but angel probably refers to the cotton candy wrapped around the hot chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream and raspberry sorbet like a group of cloud. I would assume devil is the sinful indulgence of the dessert.

I feel that the food at Angel & Devil is actually quite decent. However, I find the pricing is quite expensive for the a la carte items, especially when there is a lot of competition in the area. Being new and unknown, it is quite hard to draw customers away from the established restaurants in the area. If you are on a budget, I would recommend going for the lunch sets ranging from $10 to $20 that comes with house salad, soup of the day, choice of mains and medley fruits with greek yoghurt and chia seeds.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
