Tiong Bahru's Hipster IHOPI haven't eaten pancakes since I was a kid, but when I spotted the blackberry and chocolate pancakes at the Open Door Policy (ODP) restaurant in Singapore, I thought I might revisit my childhood.
After a week of eating barbecue chicken and rice from the city's famous hawker stalls, it feels good to dig into these pancakes while throwing any care about calories to the wind. If you're looking for something a little lighter, try the roasted field mushrooms on toasted brioche with truffle puree.
The menu is described as "modern bistro fare with a rustic twist," developed by executive chef Ryan Clift from the famous Tippling Club in Dempsey.
ODP is packed every day because of the creativity and quality of the food, the Asian bistro design, and the helpful staff. It's located in the up-and-coming Tiong Bahru neighborhood, filled with indie bookstores, DIY fashion boutiques, and other indie businesses.
