Monochrome Fusion Bistro @ Chinatown
Opened early this February, Monochrome Fusion Bistro opened its doors to guests looking for a place to unwind amidst the hustle and bustle. With the love for food, design and travel, three friends came together and brought forth their first child – Monochrome Fusion Bistro. Having met in the real estate industry, they soon found similar interests and decided to transform their creativity into a business. As you enter the restaurant, you can see the classic and minimalist design of the bistro- mainly in black and white.
Wings lovers will be happy to hear that they offer three different flavours – honey oat ($9), chilli crab ($9) and favourite house wings ($9). I like the favourite house wings most with chef’s special Thai chilli sauce. Honey marinated oat wings were too healthy for me, and I thought the chilli crab version should give a stronger punch. If you can’t decide, go for the Threesome? Wing It ($16) which offers all the three flavours in a basket.
Monochrome offers three different pizza flavours. We ordered the most unconventional pairing – Juicy Pork Belly ($22), that is stacked with braised pork belly, mayonnaise, caramelised onions, cucumber and sliced red chilli. Kudos to the thin crust, but the pizza tasted rather bland in my opinion. Perhaps a tablespoon of hoisin sauce may make it better?
Our favourite was Squid Ink Risotto ($23). The pan-seared scallops is fat and juicy. Set atop a flavourful squid ink risotto with crunchy quinoa, parmesan cheese, edamame beans and alfalfa sprouts, it’s satisfying but not cloying.
For a filling main, the Oven Roasted Chicken ($23) is a good option. The tender and flavourful meat is roasted till golden brown, and served with choice of criss-cut fries or fluffy mash potato and fresh greens.
