The Pipe District sits far away from the city area in the Western side of Singapore. The relaxing vibes of the place is a stark contrast to the surrounding office buildings, providing a little rest-and-relax place for anyone wanting some good food and fun.
The theme of the place is industrial and the entire place is filled with pipes and rustic wooden decor.
The Pipe District has some stellar dishes such as the Charcoal Fish & Chips (from S$14) and the Prime Beef Tenderloin on Himalayn Salt Block (S$32). They also have a huge range of sharing items such as wings and fries.
If meats are your thing, it is worth the trip down just to have the Prime Beef Tenderloin. You get generous slices of the beef on top of a heated salt block and you can “cook” your steak to your preferred doneness before consuming. We recommend no more than 2 to 3 seconds per side—just to get that slight sear, with a pink centre.
Cooking it on the Himalayan salt block gives the steak a little more taste and wow-factor. Also, the dish comes with seasonal vegetables, garlic rice and sauces that will definitely keep your tummy happy. However, to taste the true glory of the beef, skip the sauces and have the meat fresh off the salt block.
The Charcoal Fish & Chips is one that we were sceptical about at first, only because we had our initial reservations on whether or not the dish was overrated because of how it looks. But the batter was crispy with the right amount of thickness and the fish on the inside was glistening—far from being overcooked.
There are three choices for the Fish & Chips – Scottish Salmon (S$18), Atlantic Cod (S$20) and Dory Fish (S$14).
