6 November 2020
8ASH is the new F&B kid on Ann Siang Hill. A multiconcept modern casual diner, 8ASH is a retro-outfitted 40-seater restaurant that houses three distinct brands under one roof. The retro neon-lit dining outfit is helmed by head chef Addis Tan, who has an illustrious background in some of Singapore’s most prestigious establishments such as Garibaldi and Ricciotti with over 14 years of experience under his belt and who is an ardent supporter of plant-based fast good food. American and Japanese influences are heavily found across the brands, materialising in the form of the food available on the menu. Think iconic burgers and Japanese bowls, remastered with premium ingredients such as caviar and ikura freshly flown in from Hokkaido, where 8ASH gets most of its ingredients from. Mirai Burgers is the American-Japanese burger concept under 8ASH, offering creations that use classic Japanese flavours and cooking techniques, and showcases them in such as the Ultimate Fish & Caviar Burger ($22) and Yuzu Karaage Burger ($14) - the former of which comprises of hake filet and caviar tartrate enveloped in fluffy brioche, while the latter is fried chicken in yuzu kyosho batter, American slaw and mature cheddar.
