T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Asian/contempora­ry -

Lo­cated in a shop­house, Crea­tures is a vis­ual treat with its stucco-style con­crete walls em­bel­lished with rough brushstrok­es and pretty flo­ral paint­ings. The multi-page menu fea­tures many beloved Asian dishes that are given an in­ven­tive re­work­ing. Hainanese chicken rice, for in­stance, is pre­sented in rolls, while the lamb ren­dang is served as a ragout in shep­herd’s pie. Ky­oto Desker sees a slab of fresh tofu cov­ered in baked lo­tus root and herbs sit­ting on an ad­dic­tively creamy sauce of se­same, chilli and cen­tury egg. The restau­rant de­serves ap­plause for an ex­cel­lent miso cod and the crab dish served in a heady, spicy lemon­grass-rich curry broth. Save space for the ou­tra­geously good (and ou­tra­geously large) choco­late cake. The wine list isn’t huge, with a mix­ture of reds and whites from New Zealand, France, Italy and Spain. Staff are warm, en­gag­ing, and un­flag­ging in their en­thu­si­asm, but at times can be a lit­tle too at­ten­tive.
