If you are in a search for a hipster vibe dining which I am fond of, I often suggest going to areas like Tiong Bahru, Haji Lane and Lavender. Recently, Lavender has another addition of those wonderful instagrammable restaurant that would delight those who love to dine with great ambiance and amazing foods. Introducing the.twenty.cavan.
the.twenty.cavan is a 10 minutes walk from the Lavender MRT. It has a tricky surroundings because you cannot find that many food shops along that lane that you might missed it. Most restuarants and cafes are at the next lane. the.twenty.cavan is a modern cuisine restaurant with Asian fusion. The design concept is very rustic dining area with strategic display of lightbulbs on walls. The reason for the emphasis on light bulbs is to acknowledge Jalan Besar’s association with lighting shops. Andrew and Alex are the owners of the.twenty.cavan and are both professional chefs.
The Entertainer App Sg invited us, bloggers to a night of dining at the.twenty.cavan. It was nice to see some old faces and was happy to meet new bloggers & instagrammers.

Chicken Galangal Rice Bowl ($18)
This is a diced chicken tossed with rice in blue ginger sauce with zucchini, tomatoes and edamame. We were figuring out what the hairy fibery yummy ingredient in the bowl. We thought it was chicken floss. We were surprised to learned it is ginger, maybe sliced thinly. It is an interesting dish that we really liked.
Crispy Fish & Chips ($17)
It is made of tilapia coated with lager batter and fries with the skin on. This is a thick and large portion of crispy fish than most fish & chips I have seen.
Cavan Breakfast of brioche, bacon, pork bratwurst, sautéed button mushrooms, corn kernels and choice of eggs ($18)
Who loves the idea of eating breakfast food all day? I do! All of the content of a good breakfast are on this platter. You get a big meal just right here. You can order this in the Enteratainer App if you get in during lunch or dinner.
Canton Roast Chicken with homemade Thai chili sauce and black rice ($18)
Ahh, this is definitely one of our favorite dish. It is flavorful and juicy. It wasnt dry at all. I love the marinade of the chicken and the nuts on top.
Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs with roasted vegetables ($20)
Chef Andrew’s made a pork ribs version of the Hakka chicken dish made with red glutinous rice wine lees. This is another favorite of mine. Chef Andrew have perfected his craft on this wonderful dish.
Stir-fried Blueberry Lamb Chop with cous cous ($20).
For the main course, they have saved the best for last. The lambchop was gloriously marinated with sweet blueberry. It was soft and tender. It can with a healthy complex carbohydrates, cous cous which I would prefer that the regular white rice. Do note however this is under the premium menus and cannot be ordered in Entertainer App.
Pumpkin Yam Puree with chilled coconut cream ($8)
This is a modern version of the traditional Teochew orh nee has aloe vera and pandan juice mixed in with the pumpkin and yam puree. I reminds me of the afternoon snack my nanny used to make for me when I was young.
Matcha Pudding with mixed berries, black sesame cream and a dollop of pulut hitam ($7)
Matcha-lovers would be delighted on this dessert. It has a wonderful mix of sweet and sourish taste to play with the gustatory senses.
Lemon Pudding ($7)
If you like tarty flavor, this is for you. Its hint of mango balances out the tartness of fresh lemon juice.
I urge you to come visit this fab restaurant that is great for dates as well as meet-ups with friends. The food, the interiors and the friendly staff would be a sure hit on your date or your clique.
