The overall experience here was better than expected. We ordered 2 set menus and some ala carte dishes (there were 4 of us). The buah keluak fried rice was amazing. So is their cod fish. We ordered many varieties of food and most have excellent taste. Desserts (we ordered all) were superb. 4 of us spend $600+ without ordering wines. Abit costly but it was a fantastic evening overall.
Personally, I think that everything at Candlenut is really great. Quite great food, pretty great service and really great ambience. The food there is done in a way that is both very suitable for local and foreigners. And you can have not only the nice food, but also excellent atmosphere.
Having tried many delicious fusion food in this place. And my favorites are the Wagyu beef and the wasabi with the crab balls on the top. The dishes tasted really yummy with the quite fresh meat and fresh ingredient as well.
I had a preference for the signature Mum's Curry because it was delicious and aromatic. If you want something more peppery, then the Yeye's Curry here is highly suggested to you. Price was also quite affordable. The curries were just charges around 14.00++SGD every and went along with free available flow rice.
Visiting this place with my friend, we ordered omelette chincalok, candlenut satay, chap chye, buah keluak with chicken meat, tumeric wings to go with plain rice which were pretty delicious. We also had banana caramel pudding, chendol cream and textures of coconut as desserts too. The food there was quite nice and I highly recommend it.
