Although it has only been open for 8 months, SupperMan has established itself as a firm favourite of the office crowd in its vicinity. Located a stone’s throw away from Tanjong Pagar MRT station, at the white Maxwell Chambers building, it serves good food at good prices.
For F&B, I feel that that’s a simple winning formula that will keep people coming back again and again!
We were invited for a food review, and had a great time.
One of the owners shared with us that the place was set up by three friends, each bringing their own unique skills to the table. One of them is the chef (who used to work at Raffles Hotel!), the other the pastry chef (whose desserts are real yummy), and the last person takes care of the book-keeping. Sounds like a dream team.
One of my favourite aspects of SupperMan is its set lunch concept. For the price indicated next to a main, you also get two sides (one of which can be the dessert of the day) and any non-alcoholic drink thrown in. With no GST and no service charge (although full service is provided), what you see is indeed what you get. How rare in this day and age!
The sides are of good standard too – I find the mesclun salad consistently fresh (after having dined there a few times before).
The truffle fries are a hot favourite, and in case you are wondering what the side called “balls of fire” is, the public service announcement here is that it’s popcorn chicken!
The menu is also very innovative, in a good way, with offerings such as seafood laksa linguine, and tom yum prawn risotto. The local-flavoured sauces/gravy go surprisingly well with the italian pastas.
|Generous portions of cod|
I really enjoyed the cod served that day. It was cooked just right, and I thought it was particularly generous that they serve two fillets for the whole set meal price of $29.80!
|Laksa lovers will love this|
The laksa worked so well with the fettuccini that I kept going back for more helpings of this dish. Presentation is always done well in their dishes too – a feast for the eyes, not just the tummy.
|Rib-eye steak on a bed of passion fruit sauce – pretty!|
|Dessert – different every day|
The pastries are always interesting and of consistent quality. I thought it generous of them to usually offer a little scoop of ice-cream alongside to complete the sweet end to a good meal.
