People will tell you that the best Eurasian food in Singapore is found not in Singapore but in homes, cooked from recipes handed down through the generations.
Here at Quentin's, we introduce the Eurasian past and future cuisine, passed down from generations and to carry the tradition and introduction of new creations to future generations!
"Skinny Chef" Quentin learned the art of Eurasian Cooking from his Grandparents. He has taken the bold step of setting up a Eurasian Restaurant knowing full that Eurasian Family cooks will be his harshest critics.
So those of you without the connection, there's Quentin's!
Quentin's Eurasian Restaurant (Ceylon Road)
"A gastronomic icon of Singapore’s Eurasian community, this homely restaurant dishes out classics that are a glorious mix of East and West.
From the menu, start with a tasty snack of Fish Keropok and Sambal Belacan. The deep-fried crackers are salty and crunchy, perfect for dipping into the fiery sambal sauce. Another spicy snack is the Prawn Bastador, where fresh plump prawns are simmered in red-hot gravy.
For mains, order the Curry Debal with Oxtail. Named ‘Devil’s Curry’, this classic Eurasian dish is traditionally made from the leftovers of Christmas dinner. Here, the dish features a fall-off-the-bone oxtail, with bits of bacon bone in the slightly spicy gravy that adds a deep flavour to the dish. Another must-try is the Prawn Bostador, Pot Roast Beef and Pasteis De Bacalhau. End dinner on a sweet note with a slice of Sugee cake. Made with semolina flour, ground almonds, and a generous amount of butter, this is one moist and delicious treat that will satisfy all dessert-lovers." (Chope, November 2019)
