Singkong, the latest addition to Bandra’s food scene, in one word is ‘delightful’! A live sushi counter, a bar and dim lighting are the key features of the ambience. The look and feel of the place is much similar to The Tasty Tangles, which in a way is a good thing.
Browsing through the menu, we realized that the place is priced not as steep as The Tasty Tangles or Sanchos and comprises of Thai, Japanese and Chinese dishes. They also have an extensive bar menu with some unique blends.
We ordered our drinks after scanning through the bar menu, the Tropical Sangria and the Singkong Martini caught our attention. While the Sangria was quite a disappointment, the signature martini was delicious and got better with every sip. The coffee flavour along with the punch of vodka and cinnamon blended perfectly and left us craving for more.
Coming to the food, we were served tasting portions of a lot of dishes out of which our favourites were the following. Roasted Black Pepper Chicken, succulent and flavourful; Oriental Shrimp Nest, served in a shot glass and was definitely a winner, Spicy Aromatic Chicken Dumpling, a signature dish and comprised of a riot of flavours. A special mention to the sushi, even though we are not fans of sushi in general, we thoroughly enjoyed and savoured the ones served here. The chef has done an incredible job of tweaking the flavours for the Indian taste buds.
For desserts we tried the Sesame Honey Mini Cones which transported us back to being kids and the Chocolate Mocha Fudge Cake, dense and sinful.
Overall, Singkong is an ideal destination for lunch and dinner meetings or family get togethers. lovely flavours and spacious seating, give it a miss if you are planning a quiet date!
