Salted and Hung Restaurant in Purvis Street, Singapore

Salted and Hung Purvis Street Singapore - 15

We had thought that Salted and Hung Restaurant was a repackaged version of the former 5th Quarter restaurant that had relocated to another part of Singapore. We had a good experience there (read about our visit here) and so we thought it was a good idea to check out the new Salted and Hung which is now in a shophouse on Purvis Street.

The interior of Salted and Hung bears no resemblance to the one at 5th Quarter. Instead of an interesting ornate decor, the space in Purvis Street was purely functional.

Here are pictures of the Salted and Hung menu. The menu looked roughly similar but the prices seem to have moved up.  We ordered five items, thinking that it would be enough for two.

This is the charcuterie platter which was a combination of the five kinds of cured meats listed under the “salted and hung” category in the menu, except that one item was replaced by oxtail. The taste of the charcuterie was roughly similar to those available elsewhere. Given that this was the category of food bearing the name of the restaurant we had expected more.

Little Creatures Pale Ale ($16), one of the nicest beers from Australia.

Next was the tripe. Now this was a nice, distinctive dish. Pieces of tripe deep-fried till very crisp. In particular, we liked the texture of this dish which was a perfect finger food to eat with a cold beer.

The grilled king prawns was just that. A plate of three grilled prawns with a coating of a mildly spicy sauce.

The pork jowl was served with some slices of abalone. The pork had a high proportion of fat and was roasted till the edges were crisp. A high-end version of ‘siew yuk’. The taste of this dish was quite good but the portion was very small.

The kale was a dish of vegetables with a ball of homemade cheese and some toasted nuts. Again the taste was good but the portion was so small.

Generally, our experience at Salted and Hung was quite different from the one at 5th Quarter.  The quality of food was generally good, but the servings were really small.
