For dessert, options include smores ($12) with brown butter marshmallow, hazelnut praline, and sugee cake ($12) made with orange, candied ginger and yogurt.

The prices are for the dinner menu. At lunch time, pick three dishes for $25 or four dishes for $30. Additional charges apply for certain dishes.

The drinks menu features cocktails such as Who Moved My Kueh ($18) with pandan vodka, Cointreau, passionfruit, fresh lime and egg white; and For Goodness Sake ($18) with nori sake, Kyuri gin, barley, shoyu and fresh lemon.
