Open For Business: Redpan
Established Singapore architecture firm DP Architects has partnered with The Food Explorer Group, which runs Grub Burger Bistro and Fix cafe, to start a modern Singapore restaurant.
For mains, tuck into Prawn & Hae Bee Hiam Pasta ($15), where tagliatelle is spiced up with the spicy dried shrimp condiment, made from head chef Mervyn Phan's grandmother's recipe.
Other dishes include Char Siew Chilli Fries ($7), topped with char siew ragout, sour cream and jalapeno salsa; Pork Pops (fried pork belly) with spicy mango sauce ($7) and Roti John ($9), grilled baguette topped with omelette.
