Less than a year into business, Chef Ricky has already brought global flavors into the STREET 50 Restaurant & Bar kitchen successfully. Trained on French cuisine but later also on Asian cuisine, you’d be in for a treat if you are a fan of fusion food. In this establishment, it’s essentially Asian food with European twist.

If you are wondering, prices are more than reasonable. Starters start at $8++, while pastas and mains average at about $15++ and $20++ respectively. Hotpot is also served as one of the ala-carte options. From $16++ to $27++, you can opt for either the Imperial Chicken Broth or the Tom Yam Broth.

Hazelnut Escargots :: $14++ (1/2 dozen) / $22 (dozen)

Hazelnut Escargots :: $14++ (1/2 dozen) / $22 (dozen)

Hazelnut Escargots ($14++ for 1/2 dozen / $22++ for a dozen) :: Slow-baked Burgundy snails stuffed with Hazelnut butter and flambéed with brandy right in your face. These interactive moments make the appetizers more well, appetizing. It’s actually quite interesting a combination; I love how fragrant it is, with hints of whatever brandy that remains. A refreshing change of the usual garlicky ones.

Lamb Rendang :: $24++

Lamb Rendang :: $24++

Lamb Rendang ($24++) :: I was disappointed with the slow-braised whole lamb shank though. It’s drenched in rendang paste, which came across a little too heavy and sweet for me. Further, the meat was not as soft and tender as I’d like.

Barbequed Chicken :: $18++

Cajun Chicken :: $18++

Cajun Chicken ($18++) :: It was to my delight that the more unassuming dish, the roasted halved spring chicken, stood out far more. Though roasted very evenly and adequately on the outside, the inside remains, as cliché as it sounds, tender and moist. I don’t like breast meat, but even that was edible. It is accompanied with salad and fries.

Tom Yam Flair :: $18++

Tom Yam Flair :: $18++

Tom Yam Flair ($18++) :: Who would have thought that I’d be able to find an of-standard pasta dish outside of a Italian / Pasta-specialized restaurant? Made with Thai herbs and wine in a mild Tom Yam cream, everything fell into place nicely. I can take spicy food well, and this was daringly spicy. With faint tastes of wine and Thai herbs on the background, fresh seafood, including two huge indulgent scallops, and al-dente pasta, I’d highly recommend anyone to try this.

Durian Pengat :: $8++

Durian Pengat :: $8++

Durian Pengat ($8++) :: Unfortunately, it doesn’t taste as good as it looks. While the crepe wasn’t overly thick, the durian pulp cocooned in the crepe tasted somewhat artificial.

Sure, there were hits and misses, but it is still a reasonable dining place, away from the crowd at VivoCity. Have the Tom Yam Flair whilst here, or for a safer option, the BBQ Chicken – you should be more than satisfied.
