Good grub are aplenty in food-obsessed Singapore, but one with a killer view can certainly take things up a notch. When we’re craving for really awesome comfort food and want something amazing to stare at, chances are you’ll find us at OverEasy, everyone’s favourite American-style diner that offers stunning views of the Marina Bay skyline.
This all-American dining destination transports us back to a time where classic American diners were housed in train cars. It’s got the late-1800s feel down pat: the interior boasts a stylish, old school look, with a distinctive wooden curved panel near the ceiling and iconic silver, industrial mirrors behind the bar.
The visual feast (and great location) aside, OverEasy’s grub is the other thing that keeps us coming back for more. Menu highlights include the truffle burger (this American staple features wagyu beef mince slathered with house-infused truffle mayonnaise, a cheese blend of red milk cheddar, emmental and parmesan, sauteed onions and mushrooms inside a grilled brioche bun), and the Mac & Cheeks, which uses Australian beef cheeks. Cured for five hours in rosemary, thyme and veal jus, these tender delights are seared with red wine before being braised overnight in the oven. Plus, they don’t use just any kind of cheese for this creation… it’s a combination of parmesan and the oh-so-rich, creamy gruyere.
There’s also the fiery buffalo wings, where you have control over the spice level – there are four levels, ‘Wimp’, right up to ‘Crazy Mofo’, but if you’ve a burning desire to prove you can handle the wings even hotter, ask for Level 10, an off-the-menu special made with the spiciest chilli on earth, the scorpion pepper.

To wash down all that goodness, we highly recommend ordering one of OverEasy’s specialty cocktails. Those with an uncontrollable sweet tooth must order the spiked milkshake, which comes with rum, vanilla bean ice cream, and maple syrup. Need something refreshing? Go for the Kyoho grape sour. If you’re up for something really different, pick the Breakfast of Champions. Dubbed the “ultimate wake-up call”, this mighty mix consists of Redemption High rye bourbon, Advocaat, Grade A Maple Syrup, lemon juice and a waffle biscuit.
