Suprette Restaurant Kam Leng Hotel Singapore

Suprette Burger

Jalan Besar looks set to be the next up and coming area, with hip places such as Antoinette Patisserie, Chye Seng Huat and Broadcast HQ.

Suprette, a modern restaurant which specialises in American-inspired food with a grown-up drinks list, is one of the newest addition to the area. The restaurant can be describe as being on the intimate side, the space is only big enough to accommodate slightly over twenty guests.

When we were there for dinner on a weekday night, the restaurant was almost full. We were surprised as the location was rather inaccessible. But after having a meal there, I can understand why Suprette is slowly gaining popularity. The food is delicious, hearty and unpretentious.

Like the restaurant, the menu itself is small. There is a breakfast menu (served daily from 7am to 11am, and 2.30pm on weekends) consisting of items such as Corned Beef Hash, Ricotta Pancakes and Western Omelette. For lunch and dinner, you can choose from five starters, five main courses and two desserts.

Seared Scallop

We started with the Seared Scallops ($16), which were very disappointing. Four tiny pieces atop a bunch of shaved leek… Let’s just say if I do visit Suprette again, I will steer clear from this dish.

Roast Pork Belly

The Crispy Pork Belly on Crostini ($14) fared slightly better. But considering that the main courses are only a few dollars more, I would probably just skip the starters and order more main courses to share.

Spicy Seafood Spaghetti

We tried all the main courses except for the Vegetable Stack ($22), which was not available that day. I was especially enamoured of the Spicy Seafood Spaghetti ($25). The pasta was cooked right and it had generous seafood ingredients.

The Suprette Burger ($24), pictured above in the first photo, was superb. It came with a tasty beef patty topped with gruyere cheese in a nicely-toasted bun. There is the option of adding sides – such as bacon, mushroom, avocado, or foie gras – but the burger is so good on its own that you won’t need them.

Hanger Steak

Also good was the Hanger Steak & Marrow ($29). The beef was tender and flavourful. A very well-executed dish.

Ricotta Stuffed Chicken Breast

The Ricotta and Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast ($23) may sound a bit less glamorous than some of the dishes above, but don’t let the name fool you. In fact, this dish surprised all of us. I am not a fan of breast meat, but Suprette’s rendition completely won me over. This was easily one of the most tender chicken breast meat I have had.

Desserts are probably not Suprette’s strength, so I would suggest going somewhere else to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Suprette Bar

Our conclusion was that despite some rather lacklustre starters, the food was very good. Suprette fits the bill when I am looking for a spot to have a good meal and some drinks with friends.
