Located in the city's central business district and within one of the historic, pre-war shophouses along Circular Road, Quay House is the newest addition to the vibrant Boat Quay dining scene.
The newly launched restaurant presents a personal interpretation of regional cuisine, which takes cues from the storied history of the restaurant's location as the epicentre of spice trade in the past. Guided by the rich culinary history of the region, Quay House's concept is anchored by a suite of cherished heritage recipes and their intriguing provenance stories.
At its heart, the restaurant aims to deliver comfort food prepared with ingenuity, finesse and quality ingredients. The team of regional chefs drives the direction of Quay House with technical versatility in both traditional and modern techniques such as wood-fire cooking, fermentation and aging to showcase bold flavour combinations and unconventional executions.
Reflecting the collective culinary experiences and expertise of the culinary team, the dynamic menu is designed with communal dining in mind and highlights fresh perspectives to excite the palate, and to interest and ignite dialogues. Guests can also expect a kaleidoscope of fresh and familiar regional flavours within the dining space that exudes #SingaNoir ambience.
For starters, JJ's Flatbread is a perfect tear and share dish which is a little nod to one of the sous chefs' past projects of serving up homemade pizzas, while the Burmese Tomatoes Salad is a humble vegan dish of seasonal tomatoes served in a silky chickpea dressing, lending complex layers of sweet, sour and spicy flavours.
Other menu highlights include the Balinese Kampung Chicken, which is marinated in a Betutu rub, a spice paste made of chilli and a range of fragrant Southeast Asian herbs, before being wood-fired grilled to a charred finish. Diners will also love the Quay House Duck 2 Ways where the duck breast is aged to enhance its flavour and texture before being smoked for six hours over lychee-wood. The smoked duck breast is then paired with a duck confit and finished with a rich Nona curry.
For a sweet ending to the meal, the 888 Chocolate is the team's take on the Chinese Huat Kueh, served with banana ice cream, masala crumble and teh anglaise.
Perfect for corporate diners seeking to impress clients, Quay House's Executive Lunch Set provides a convenient and fuss-free option. For a two course lunch set ($38+ per person), diners can pair a delectable main with a side of their choice, while the three course lunch set ($48+ per person) comes with a dessert to conclude the meal.
Up for a pre-or post-dinner adventure? Head on to the second level for a session of mystery golf with Kulnari Mystery Golf, and be transported to 1920s Boat Quay to investigate a mysterious occurrence at the Kulnari Trading Company building. The ingenious combination of escape room puzzles with mini-golf gameplay, coupled with storytelling flights of fancy and touches of historical facts, is an experience you won't want to miss.
