After relishing the four delectable appetisers served tableside, I eagerly made my way to the expansive buffet spread. My first stop? The dim sum section, where tempting offerings awaited. Among the array of choices, the Siew Mai and Har Gow stood out as timeless classics. The Siew Mai, with its succulent filling encased in a thin, translucent wrapper, offered a delightful balance of savoury flavours. Meanwhile, the Har Gow, showcasing plump shrimp enveloped in a delicate yet resilient casing, provided a burst of freshness with every bite.

Tanglin Cookhouse @ Tanglin Mall - Modern Colonial-style Restaurant Offering Western and Asian Inspired Dishes


Tanglin Cookhouse at Tanglin Mall is a modern colonial-style restaurant serving Western and Asian-inspired dishes that best represent the dynamics between British culture and local flavours.


Here in the evening, you get to start with some tippers from the bar. We had Gin and Tonic - Berries Wonders with Widges London Dry Gin ($20) and a Moonshot Martini with Boutique-y Gin Company Moonshot Gin ($20) under the Special Gin Cocktails list. I recommend the latter, which allures with floral notes.

Vine Tomato Salad with Fresh Burrata Cheese 3/5

We started the dinner with Vine Tomato Salad with Fresh Burrata Cheese ($25.90). The salad was covered with an abundance of puffed kombu quinoa and a generous handful of pine nuts. The pairing of pillowy burrata with crunchy elements set this salad apart from the usual.

Tanglin Scotch Egg 2.8/5

Next, we had the much loved Tanglin Scotch Egg ($16.90), served with Purple cabbage slaw and pickled mustard seeds. Both the slaw and tangy mustard seeds cut the richness of the meat, but I find its gaminess a tad too much.

Salmon Wellington 4.5/5

We had Salmon Wellington ($26.90) and Grandmother's Roasted Chicken ($25.90) for the main. My favourite was the former. I loved the warm smell of the dill when it was served, and slicing the buttery puff into half unveiled an incredibly moist slab of salmon fillet. It was plain delicious with the side of lemon dill beurre blanc.

Grandmother's Roasted Chicken 3.8/5

The latter features a 1/2 spatchcock chicken with onion gravy and Yorkshire pudding. The chicken was tender with very nicely roasted skin, adding to its flavour. The onion gravy was superb, complementing the meat exceptionally well. However, the Yorkshire pudding was slightly burnt, and the green peas were somehow cloyingly sweet.

Sticky Date Pudding 3/5

For a sweet ending, the warm Sticky Date Pudding ($14) was comforting with English toffee sauce, with added nutella soil for texture. What's different about Tanglin Cookhouse's pudding is that it is served with papadam and coconut ice cream to give a savoury, tropical vibe. I enjoy the sweet-savoury play on this classic typical dessert. However, the pudding itself can be 'stickier', and the papadam was a bit limp when we had it, which affected the overall experience of this dish.

Eton Mess Trifle 3/5

We also had Eton Mess Trifle, a rather romantic dessert made by layering basil macerated strawberries, meringue and vanilla chantilly cream. The tangy strawberries brought the trifle a refreshing and herbaceous burst of acidity. However, less sweet would have been better.
