Bread Street Kitchen

Updated November 2021

There have been numerous trips to MBS recently on our end for errands and it just happens that the mealtime coincides, thus we got a chance to dine there. We decided to revisit Bread Street kitchen after 4 good years and since it was an impromptu (without reservation) decision, we were left with the choice of dining at bar counters in which we were perfectly fine with it.

The service is friendly and professional as usual. We took our orders and the basket of assorted bread and butter was served shortly. Out of the assorted bread, I'm in love with their focaccia bread with cheese.

I love these out of all others that night. The Seared scallops come in a plate of 3 and we added another 1 for $8 to make it 4. The seared scallops were decked with sweet corn ragout and topped with n'duja chimichurri. The combination of sweet taste from the scallops and corns with a little sourish from the chimichurri is perfect.

Though the price remains the same since 2017, there are differences in the dish. The portion was smaller when compared and the section of meat used from the pig is definitely different. We still enjoy the upper luscious cracking layer of the skin however the experience was not so fantastic with bones in it.

Besides the glistering surface of the Pork belly that makes the dish stands up, I will comment that the combination of Apple Puree and mustard jus to the meat is wonderful.

The mashed potato was surprisingly good. It looks like dough in a bowl too but the texture was way above what we can imagine. It was smooth and creamy.

The Roasted Black Cod was served with mashed potatoes, salted capers, artichoke, red wine & lemon sauce. The Mashed Potato that decked the black cod tasted more flavourful as compared to the side order we had. There were hints of herbs taste in it.

While we have expectations of the food in Bread Street Kitchen, the slow-roasted Pork Belly was a disappointment. The first time we had it did leave the dish a good impression but it seems that the standard is no longer the same.

The industrial warehouse designed restaurant and bar, Bread Street Kitchen, which modeled after its London counterparts are serving a British-European menu in this bustling place of Singapore, Marina Bay Sands or MBS in Short. For those that do not know, this is the celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay's 2nd Restaurant in Asia.

Without reservation, we manage to grab a table as "walk-in" customer for limited timing as pre-agreed with the servers. Avoiding the weekend crowd, we went in the early evening and luckily got a table by the side of the window, a lovely corner good for people watching.


The assorted complimentary bread was served lukewarm with a block of margarine at the side. It was refillable and interestingly served in an assorted where you can enjoy different texture.

Love the checkered flooring and the laid back feel of the restaurant. Though furnishing may be dim in colors but during the day time with natural lights coming in from outside, it turns out to be very bright. I bet that when night falls, it's going to be very cozy and romantic here!


Besides the sparkling water we had, we ordered a glass of vanilla milkshake. Pretty ordinary with not much of a strong vanilla taste. The milkshake was topped with chocolate bits and smaller marshmallows.

Simply looks like eating something from the part of the bark of the tree as the dish was served on an earthy log. Roasted veal carpaccio was smokey, not gamey and brought together beautifully with the runy quail's egg, dill pickles mix in tuna dressing. What an appetizer that balance the flavor and texture!

The cider Onion soup was awesome, it was not too creamy or gelat for us. We were very please about its pleasant taste and the 3 cheddar cheese toastie that floats.

The must-order dish when you are in Bread Street Kitchen. Indulging the traditional fish & chips we do find in London, a large chunk of it fried to its golden brown perfection with big cut chips. The thin and crispy batter had been well executed and holds the fish as a whole. Besides having the homemade Tartar sauce and lemon wedges by the side, there is minted scented crushed peas to complete the meal.

Pork belly? Really? Our kind of Chinese "Sio Bak" (Roasted Pork Belly) being served right here in Bread Street Kitchen. The external layer of Pork Belly was crisply done up leaving a good crackling bite while the pork literally melts in our mouths.

What pondered us was that how did they manage to make the bite so crispy without compromising the juiciness taste in the pork belly meat.

Awesome! Moreover, the paring of spice apple puree makes it different, love the fresh tartness from the apple and they did marry well with the slab of Pork Belly.

We did manage to dine within the time limit and all went well despite the 20-30 minutes wait upon getting our food. For those who wish to make a visit, do remember to make a reservation early to avoid disappointment. Overall service was attentive and friendly, I won't mind coming back again if its for special occasion.
