Nestled in a beautifully restored, three-storey, pre-war transitional shophouse, The Palmary was formerly home to a vintage bicycle shop in the 1970s.
This fusion dining restaurant bar has done this historic location justice with its great food and impeccable service.
Fancy some bar seats to perhaps people watch and slow down your pace of life?
The restaurant on the first floor offers a selection of intriguing fusion dishes like Boston lobster and mushroom cream linguine ($25.90). In addition to having a succulent boston lobster, our pasta was coated in a sauce with a fine balance of cream and shroom taste. Guess who couldn’t resist slurping up the entire plate?
One of our favourite starters is the Squid & Salsa ($10.90). This dish of marinated squid was juicy and nicely seasoned with mango salsa. In the background is their Truffle Mushroom Soup ($10.90). I am a lover of all things truffle, so this definitely appealed to my taste buds! However, some may find it a bit too oily for their liking.
For those craving for a good steak, The Butcher’s Cut ($27.90) is a dish of cured hanging tender steak slow cooked for 4 hours.
Desserts are always the highlight for me, and The Palmary did not disappoint. The Earl Grey Cake ($12.90) was fluffy with a fragrant earl grey finish, perfect for all tea lovers! You can try the Almond Pecan Brownie ($11.90) as well with its bittersweet chocolate, almonds, pecan complete with vanilla gelato. Unfortunately we did not get to try their specialty Spiked Ondeh Shot as it was unavailable during our visit.
Overall, we had a very enjoyable experience here. The Palmary is a pleasant surprise to be found in a quiet neighbourhood of Singapore. Just a short walk away from Farrer Park MRT and the Little India enclave, you can explore the region after your hearty meal. What’s more, they are currently having a S$50+ 3-course set meal for DBS Cardmembers, definitely an opportune time for you to check them out!
