Gallery & Co Review

Posted on Monday, December 19, 2016

I loved the food in Gallery & Co so much that I came back twice within the space of two weeks, and am contemplating making my third trip back already. So the reason Jie and I ended up here was also because I had the Entertainer, which if you don't already know gives one-for-one mains throughout the year and this was by far the most value one-for-one I've redeemed because Gallery & Co does not charge GST or Service Charge. This meant that our two mains cost us just $10.50 nett each!

If you can only get one dish, I strongly recommend the Spiced Roast Chicken Leg (S$17.00). From the moment it hit the table, the aroma of the coriander garlic-pesto had me drooling. The ingredients make you feel healthy with the mixed grains and roasted eggplants (love) but it's really not because of how oily and juicy the chicken was - kind of best of both worlds? Aggressively seasoned, generous in portion, tender and flavour packed. 10/10 want to eat this again!

The Soy Ginger Salmon (S$21.00), while also delicious, was a lot less filling and satisfying than the chicken, but definitely a lot more healthy! We also had the Ondeh Ondeh Cake which seems kind of apropos since we were eating in the National Gallery!

There aren't many reviews of this place online, so I'm kind of surprised why the hipsters haven't caught up to it with it's pastel, post-modern / art-deco and light filled interiors and seriously instagrammable food that actual tastes good. I would say my only criticism was that the restaurant is a little dirty, in the sense that it was quite hard to find a space to sit down that wasn't already covered with used plates.

Also, as if Gallery & Co could sense my enthusiasm for the place, they've recently reached out to let me pick one of their three adorable Xmas Bundles this Christmas (because if you didn't know, Gallery & Co is not only a Cafe but also the official museum shop selling products inspired by Southeast Asia which fuse art and design. I chose The Fig, cause I needed a notebook for next year (true story):

All the bundles come pre-packed and gift wrapped, the other two are Holly and Mistletoe, which you can just order online if you don't have the time to go down to explore the actual shop!

Thanks for the festive cheer! Can't wait to make my next visit with gift cards in tow.
