The White Rabbit restaurant is located at the Eastern end of the Dempsey dining belt. Housed in an old but lovingly restored chapel, it has arguably one of the most interesting restaurant interiors in Singapore.
The tables are set far apart, a nice luxury in land-scarce Singapore, so you do not have to hear the conversations of your neighbours. If you are here in a small party (up to four) we recommend to call in advance request for one of the semi-circular booth seats at the sides. They are very comfortable and romantic especially when lit at night. Today, however, we decided to lunch here on impulse and was seated in one of the centre tables. The White Rabbit restaurant serves European food i.e. mostly a combination of familiar French and Italian standards. Your ordinary patrons were not very hungry and so we decided on just a main course each, namely the linguine vongole at and wagyu quarter-pounder, both priced at $28. Other items which looked interesting on the brunch menu were the braised oxtail and maine lobster omelette.
The most important thing about linguine vongole is the clams. In this case, they were fresh and juicy. The pasta was done well at the right amount of al dente-ness. The only thing we would improve on is to increase the quantity of clams so that the clam flavour is stronger. The burger came in a generous portion. The meat patty was very well cooked, with the right amount of charring on the outside and maintaining a moist tasty interior. The fries deserve some praise as well. All in all it was a very pleasant lunch in a very soothing setting.
