“OMG”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Singapore of course is renowned for its food - at Shoebox, they set the standard for incredible meals with amazing flavours and a casual yet very attentive service style. It feels like home, but with waaayyy better cooking than Mum's!! Its a must try.

“We love the food!”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Modern cuisine - free style according to what is available in the markets locally. We had the wagyu beef cheek pasta. The beef melted in your mouth, sauce was tasty and pasta was al dente.

“Unpretentious setting with yummy grub to boot”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Walked in one afternoon and decided to give this place a go.

The place is a mixture of raw concrete walls, tiled mosaic floor, glass doors and a long communal table on one end against the wall, and a row of tables and chairs on the other.

Honest, unpretentious, simple, casual. Just the kind of place I like.

As with most hip eateries these days, the menu changes periodically. When I was there, I ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich while my friend had the Ranch Burger. Both were fuss-free, well presented and more importantly, delicious.

The wait staff were attentive, friendly and professional as well. So it certainly made for a pleasant lazy lunch on a weekday.

And if you come for dinner, walk right through and you'll end up at Bitters & Love, a bespoke cocktail bar. But that's another story for another review.
