I was pleased after a long day to discover Candlenut literally across the concourse from my hotel. And I was doubly pleased to be able to sample a really unique local cuisine during my brief stay in Singapore.
The simplicity of the restaurant was matched by the warmth of the welcome and arriving at 8pm with no reservation was no problem. The restaurant was pleasantly buzzy and obviously people were enjoying g themselves.
As I was dining solo I asked for advice to ensure I sampled the signature dishes. Personally I couldn't resist the wing bean salad - a light, tangy combination of green beans, prawns, cashew nuts, lime juice, mint and coriander. Utterly delicious. I had this with the house speciality - beef Buah Keluak. What looked dark and daunting was rich, smooth and unlike anything I had ever tasted. A must have.
Service was friendly and efficient and the drinks and meal arrived quickly. It was a thoroughly positive experience.
If you are staying at the adjacent Dorsett Hotel you will get a 10% discount. Just another reason to enjoy,
