Mediterranean fare, barbecued Asian creations, Chinese classics, teppanyaki, and superfoods – get all this in one place: Alley on 25 at Andaz Singapore
If you’ve got a big appetite, or can never decide on where to go for a good meal, then all-day dining venue Alley on 25 is perfect for you. Located on the 25th floor of Andaz Singapore (killer views are a given), Alley on 25 is a colourful collection of restaurants, each specialising in a particular cuisine (and cooking style).
Alley on 25 is modelled after Singapore’s long, winding back alleys and old shophouses, and even though it’s five different eateries, they’re all linked so you can easily hop from one spot to the other. Ready to feast? Here’s what you can look forward to (along with some of our personal recommendations!):
For Mediterranean plates…
Go to: The Green Oven
In the mood for some comfort food? At the Green Oven, it’s all about hearty dishes prepared in a single Beech oven. Try mains such as the spring chicken with bacon, Pommery mustard, and potatoes, and don’t forget about sides like the lobster mac and cheese and eggplant parmigiana – which, by the way, were our two favourites here.
For grilled Asian delights…
Go to: Smoke & Pepper
Fans of barbecued-anything, make a beeline for Smoke & Pepper. These guys fire up the grill in the open kitchen and whip up your Asian-inspired orders, from hand-dived scallops with garlic-sesame butter and lime, to must-tries like the vegetarian burger. The latter features a chickpea-beetroot patty and tastes so good that even the biggest carnivores (like us) won’t miss their meat this one time.
For Chinese fare…
Go to: Auntie’s Wok & Steam
Auntie’s Wok and Steam pays tribute to Singapore’s love for zi char, but there are plenty of dishes with a fiery Szechuan twist here. You can get your dim sum and (sustainable – yay!) seafood fix here with the selection of small bites and live, fresh catch, but we’re in love with the double-boiled beef short rib noodles with spicy Szechuan broth. Also, you might want to leave room for Mao Tai chocolate ice cream for an interesting sweet treat.
For a different kind of teppanyaki…
Go to: Plancha’Lah!
Fancy watching the chefs put on a show just for you? Get the best seats in the house during dinner time at Plancha’Lah!, where you can observe the action before savouring offerings such as A4 Japanese Saga wagyu sirloin and Kurobuta pork chop with Fuji apple puree. Go the omakase route and choose from the set dinners available here for a little bit of everything, including stars like the super umami Patagonian toothfish cooked en papillote and the Pineapple Flambe with Sarawak black pepper, coconut ice cream, and Patron tequila.
For light bites (and heaps of superfoods)…
Go to: Icehaus
Keep it light and simple at Icehaus, where chilled seafood and cold cuts take centre stage. Go for the vegetarian-friendly caprese toasted sourdough sandwich – which comes with heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, rocket, pesto, and Kalamata olives – or be like us and do it your own way with a superfood salad, where you can take your pick from the salad bar and build a healthy bowl of greens and proteins.
Want a taste of all this goodness at Alley on 25 without a major splurge? Pop by for lunch instead. Sets start from $25 at places like Auntie Wok’s and just $18 at Icehaus if you’re craving some salad (it’s super popular). There’s also a weekend special, where you can get breakfast at just $35++. The deal? You get to pick an a la carte main course (think delectable items like a smoked salmon bagel and steak and eggs) on top of Alley on 25’s glorious breakfast buffet spread. Come hungry!
