Every couple would’ve gone through this before:
Boyfriend: Dear, what you want to eat for dinner tonight?
Girlfriend: Eh…anything lah. Your birthday, you choose.
Boyfriend: Zichar? Got your favourite crab-
Girlfriend: Don’t want lah, very hot.
Boyfriend: Okay…ba chor mee? Got pig liver.
Girlfriend: Aiyo, I push away all my appointments for you tonight and you want to bring me to eat minced meat noodles?!
Boyfriend: Okay, okay, how about western? There’s this-
Girlfriend: NO! Western so boring, can? Everywhere also the same. Can’t you be like my BFF’s boyfriend who got a lot of creative ideas-
Boyfriend: Western BORING?! Oh, hell no, you did not just say that, you fish.
And the rest, as they say, is history…They broke up.
But while the poor boyfriend could’ve put it in a nicer way, he’s right. Western food isn’t all the same across Singapore.
From time to time, creative places do pop up with Western dishes done so differently you’d never suspect they exist.
Like this hidden western eatery at Upper Thomson.
Located along a stretch of shophouses known for their food, Molten Diners is a brand-new entry to the food scene at Upper Thomson.
And they’re not just any western food stall.
The geniuses behind the humble eatery come up with new, creative dishes that’ll make you revisit the place again and again.
And their food is incredibly affordable as well with mains starting from $8.90, such as the Cajun chicken steak which comes with two free sides.
More on that later. Now…creativity.
Creative Sauces You Probably Didn’t Know Exist
Mention Western and you’ll think: Pork Chop, Fish & Chips, and all the usual jazz.
But tell me, have you heard of Twisties-flavoured Fish?
A perfectly fried fish fillet that’s crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, doused with a generous helping of cheese and sprinkled with crushed twisties.
The savoury cheese is perfectly complemented by the oh-so-familiar taste of Twisties that we used to binge on back in the past.
Or the Australian Grain Fed Ribeye with Kerala Creamy White Pepper.
You’ve heard of white pepper crab but I’ll bet my boss’s entire fortune you’ve never heard of white pepper chicken or beef.
Until now, that is.
The Kerela white pepper sauce is less fiery compared to the usual black pepper used on chicken or ribeye steaks.
Perfect for people who simply want a slight kick in their meals.
And when you pour it over a thick slice of Australian grain-fed ribeye that’s grilled medium-rare to perfection?
That’s as close to heaven as you can get.
Affordable, Quality Food
If you’re familiar with how Goody Feed does things, we don’t just recommend good food. We recommend good food that’s worth your money.
And this humble eatery here falls smack dab into that category.
People say a picture says a thousand words, so we’re going to let you see this first.
Comparable to Aston’s prices, Molten Diners’ uses quality ingredients in all of their food and each of their main course comes with two free sides.
Just look at their Mushroom Swiss Cheese Wagyu Beef Burger
A thick slab of wagyu beef slathered with molten Swiss cheese with mushrooms placed on top of crunchy lettuce and tomato slices, accompanied by two sides and a corn croquette…
…All for the price of $18.90. Yes, Wagyu beef for less than $20.
Or, if you’re feeling for some simple fare, their Cajun Chicken Chop (a tender, sizzling prime chicken cut with two free sides) comes at just $8.90.
Then, end off your gastronomic journey with some sweet treats.
And the best part? Molten Diners has no GST or service charge. So whatever number you see on the menu? That’s what you got to pay.
Here, Check Out A Video We Did On The Place:
Now, we understand that while a picture speaks a thousand words, a video shows a thousand pictures so here’s one video that’ll TL; DR the entire article.
Don’t wait liao, it’s time to make some dinner plans with your makan kakis.
P/S: The people in Molten Diners sort of have their own R&D team in the kitchen and we heard they might just be coming up with interesting seasonal flavours from time to time.
Like their Truffle mayo fries (which is, of course, done in response to Burger King)
So it doesn’t hurt to follow their Facebook Page to get first-hand news of what they’ll come up with next.
And it’s not just new food you need to keep an eye on.
