Street 50's Great Singapore Savour: Serving up a good spread of local treats

Wednesday, 1 June 2016

Perfectly timed with GSS, Bay hotel will be launching their brand new all-day dining ala-carte menu, spotlighting local favourite street eats.

Served in a good size and in touch with Singapore's heritage food, it is bound to make your day as they present local delights with a chef's twist. Here's our review.

The first dish of the night was plain looking Cereal Prawns with Wasabi dressing ($9.90). A seemingly common dish that hard to make well, the cereal prawns are evenly coated with cereal and when you dip and bite into it, hmmmph. Comforting. Could eat this over and over.
One who loves coffee ribs would be pleasantly surprised to know that the chef at Street 50 has updated it to Coffee Wings ($7.90) instead. The dish is made with chef's homemade hong kong styled coffee jam, the savoury sweetness that can be found on the wings are thankfully not too overwhelming and a lovely side dish to order for sharing.
Shrimp and Eggplant Sambal ($8.90) offers two of my favourite foods combined into one. I'm not biased, but this was the highlight of the night for me and definitely one of my favourites, as the chef had seemingly put some thought into the taste aspect. Not just well done, the addition of ikan bilis to the dish had brought it up a notch, offering a savoury taste and good crunch which I couldn't stop eating.

Too much of salted egg lava croissants and other things flooding the internet? Well, no difference here, with chef's salted egg rendition, known as the Salted Egg Lava Chicken Breast ($9.90). The crispy exterior and the tender chicken meat was delicious to have with the salted egg yolk bursting out from within. Best to have this warm and cut it open as soon as it's served!
Next, we tried the Curry Fish Head and the Claypot Assam Fish ($18.90). I've always been a curry lover, so my vote goes to the Curry Fish Head. The fish meat was tender and soaked up the flavours of the sauces so well.
It'll be worth it to order a bowl of rice and splash the gravy over the white grains, to fully enjoy the goodness of the sauce!
Interestingly, this fried rice is served omu-style. Delicately cutting the top of the omelette will reveal the flavourful X.O. Scallop & Prawns Fried Rice ($9.90).
Can't decide if you want Or luak (oyster omelette) or Char kway teow? Well, this dish is a combination of the two. With hints of chinese wine, kai lan and mushroom in oyster sauce, lent its uniqueness to the Oyster Char Kway Teow ($12.90).
After the meal, the Fresh Coconut Malibu ($8.90) was a refreshing dessert to have, served with fresh young coconut fruit, mixed fruits, coconut ice-cream and a side of fresh coconut juice. T'was a nice touch to cleanse the palate of the savoury bites that we had.
