El­len­bor­ough Mar­ket Café

T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Internatio­nal/asian -

Apart from clas­sics found in Straits Chi­nese or Per­anakan homes, there’s an ar­ray of other Asian and Western fare at El­len­bor­ough. Lo­cals usu­ally go for the buf­fet lunch or din­ner, which serves au­then­tic dishes such as babi pongteh, chap chye and ayam buah keluak. In the last dish, chicken is cooked in a mild curry, with the bit­ter black nut paste served on the side, rather than mixed with the gravy, to cater to dif­fer­ent tastes. The ro­tat­ing menu of­fers an in­ter­na­tional reper­toire, with ev­ery­thing from com­fort­ing pork rib herbal soup and creamy but­ter crab to tan­doori chicken and Thai-style steamed grouper. There are also salad sta­tions, as well as a se­lec­tion of sashimi, soba and fresh seafood on ice. Drop by the live cooking sta­tion for la mian soup noo­dle, or make your own kong bak pau—steamed buns with braised pork belly—and kueh pie tee, where a crisp pas­try shell is filled with cooked shred­ded turnip, prawn and egg.
