Town Restaurant @ The Fullerton Hotel Singapore - Past Meet Future Pop Up Featuring Celebrated Specialties Of Singapore's Next Gen Hawkers


For the month of March, Town Restaurant at Fullerton Singapore collaborates with four next-generation hawkers, showcasing their respective speciality in addition to the line-up of heritage dishes.

Seafood On Ice 4/5

Before diving into the much-celebrated specialities of the next-generation hawkers, we had a round of appetisers first, including the huge, stunning bowl of Seafood On Ice. Within sits Tiger Prawns, Norwegian Smoked Salmon, Spanner Crab, Conch, Half Shell Scallop, Black Mussels.

Sashimi & Maki Roll 4/5

Along with the Seafood On Ice came a family-style platter of Sashimi & Maki Roll.

Whole Roasted Baby Chicken Sapit 4/5

Each table is also entitled a one-time order Whole Roasted Baby Chicken Sapit, served with Spicy Kicap Manis Dip. The chicken was incredibly moist and tender. I love the gravy that was served over chicken. It was robust and vibrant with spices, perfect for kicking start your appetite.

Tree Coconut Nasi Lemak 4/5

Moving on to the stars of the month. Tree Coconut Nasi Lemak shines with its moreish coconut rice and that ever pleasing Sunny-side up.

Beef Noodle Soup 4/5

BeeF Noodle Dry 4/5

Next was the Authentic Hock Lam Street Popular Beef Kway Teow, and you can have the best of both worlds as it comes in soup or with gravy. The beef balls and beef slices were tender as expected. The chilli served at the side, enlivened the dishes by a notch.

Popiah 3.5/5

Popiah is my all-time favourite. Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat Popiah didn't disappoint with its stretchy skin. Still, I thought the turnips could be softer and more flavorful.

Eat3Cuts Cantonese Roast Meats 3.8/5

Another draw of this heritage feast is the Eat3Cuts Cantonese Roast Meats, featuring Roasted Pipa Duck, Soy Chicken and Golden Chicken Coin, with sweet and sour cucumber. The Roasted Pipa Duck was the highlight with its well-roasted skin.

Asian Delights Platter 4/5

The Asian Delights Platter is a must-try here. It comes with Iconic Singapore Chilli Crab Golden Mantou, Singapore Satay Beef & Chicken, Kurobuta Pork & Crab Meat Ngoh Hiang. A pleasing platter for the whole family.

Singapore Laksa 4/5

Another notable item is the Singapore Laksa, one of the buffet's signature dishes. The gravy imbued all the oomph of a good laksa, at least to me.


The dessert course was superb with a platter of well-curated sweet treats. I love the Strawberry Shortcake that has an ideal fresh cream to sponge cake ratio, as well as the unique Teh-Banana Tart comprising layers of ingredients. The Fullerton Fudge Cake is worth a second helping too.
