You can’t really go wrong with the Jigger & Pony Group. As part of its impressive roster of bars and restaurants, Humpback is a 63-seater restaurant nestled in a 1930s conservation shophouse within the Bukit Pasoh neighbourhood. First launched in 2015, it is back after a two-month-long renovation and remains a relaxed and welcoming date spot, boasting a brand-new menu for any seafood lover.
Led by chefs Alynna Tan and Joseph Teoh, expect nothing but inventive dishes rich in European culinary techniques and Japanese influences. Think House-Cured Hamachi Pastrami served with Japanese cucumber softened by Champagne vinegar, Purple Clams that’s simmered in sake, mirin and toasted koji cream, and Ricotta Cavatelli served with swordfish belly bacon. One would find the dishes hearty and fresh, with produce sourced as locally and regionally as possible. As for the oysters—a popular mainstay since Humpback’s early days—they are flown in fresh from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Look forward to freshly shucked oysters like the clean and crisp Hama Hama, creamy Blue Pool and briny-sweet Summerstone, best washed down with a bottle of Muscadet Domaine L’Ecu Classic 2020 from Loire Valley.
