A Guide to Palette Restaurant & Bar @ Capitol Piazza (Media Tasting)

Many bloggers and foodies have been talking about this new multi-brand dining concept called Palette Restaurant & Bar by BreadTalk Group, located at Capitol Piazza. Some liken it to a high-end food court, while others rave about having ten specialty food brands all under one roof. Over here, you can find over 400 different dishes on one menu, from street food from around the region to gourmet delicacies.

The ten food brands are:

  1. Huat Huat BBQ
  2. Delhi 6
  3. Ah Koong Restaurant
  4. Yong Xin Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle
  5. Ah Yat Seafood Restaurant
  6. Hok Kee Authentic Hong Kong Noodle & Congee
  7. Balestier Bak Kut Teh
  8. IndoChili
  9. Little Nanyang
  10. 90 Gastro Bar

You will not have to worry about finding a seat because the dining hall seats 420 guests comfortably as it spans 12,000 square feet. Also, ordering is done through an iPad, so you do not have to stand at a stall and wait for your food.

Each table comes with a jar of fruit and herb-infused water ($3, free flow), which is as good as ordering a drink from a stall.

1. HUAT HUAT BBQ

Famous for its BBQ chicken wings for about 14 years, Huat Huat BBQ has also set up stall here at Palette.

Huat Huat BBQ Chicken Wings (half a dozen for $12). Chicken wings marinated with Chinese rose wine, barbequed and served with chilli sauce. The special marinate added fragrance and sweetness to the meat. I wish I had more space for this!

2. DELHI 6

Other than local food, you can also find North-West Indian cuisine by Delhi 6. The dishes are cooked with two electric tandoors (Indian clay oven).

Paneer Ke Sholey Roll ($11.90). Roomali (thin flatbread) roll with spiced Calcutta cottage cheese and vegetables. According to the staff there, this is a must try because it is very good. The flavours melded together brilliantly and it is a good option for vegetarians.

Lahori Boti Kebab ($16). Boneless mutton marinated for three to four days with green mango and papaya, then tandoori-grilled with masala spices. I would have preferred if this was chicken because the mutton was rather gamey.

[Newly Opened] Dazzling Cafe Has Come to Singapore!

Wow! I must say Capitol Piazza is looking spiffy these few days! And one of the first few tenants to commence its operation is Dazzling Cafe! This Taiwanese cafe is the first branch in Southeast Asia and some of us had been anticipating its opening.

The cafe is undeniably pretty and we noticed that the patrons here are mostly females (only two males accompanying their partners in a full house). Anyway, Dazzling Cafe has two storeys but is only serving on the first floor as they are still looking for more manpower to run its full capacity while sustaining quality.

The cafe is currently having it s soft launch, so opening hours are from 12 to 8pm (last order 7.30pm). We went there on a weekday around 4pm and the queue was not very long. The wait time however was about 30 minutes so we left our number with them and went to another restaurant for lunch first.
