We saw this Singapore restaurant in Brisbane City, Australia when we were there earlier this year (before the virus became very serious and the big lockdown). We had stopped to try some hawker favourites at the Singapore & Co Kitchen in Albert Street, Brisbane.
According to its website, “Singapore & Co. Kitchen (previously, Little Singapore Albert Lane and Little Singapore Market Square) specialises in Asian Cuisine, particularly Singaporean dishes, offering customers a vast menu of over 50 dishes cooked including our signature Laksa“. It is located in the heart of the Queen Street Mall in central Brisbane City, a bustling retail and restaurant zone popular with tourists and local alike.
Singapore Restaurant in Brisbane City – Menu
Here are pictures of some portions of the Singapore & Co. Kitchen menu. It contains many of Singapore’s hawker food, with laksa being served in seven variations. We were not in the mood for spicy food that day and decided to try the wonton soup noodles (A$14.90), nasi goreng (A$13.90) and beef hor fun.
The wanton noodle soup was served in a quite a large portion. There was a fair amount of noodles, char siew and wontons. Taste wise, it was a decent large bowl of noodles, nothing really stood our – whether in a good or bad way. I guess Singapore visitors to Brisbane with a craving for wonton mee would not be dissatisfied with the wanton noodles at the Singapore restaurant in Brisbane.
The nasi goreng was the least enjoyable dish that day. It was a serving of fried rice with an egg and not much else. We would avoid this dish if we visit Singapore & Co Kitchen again.
The best dish of the day was the beef hor fun (picture below). There were many slices of beef, but more importantly, there was an aroma of wok hei. The standard of this hor fun was comparable to those of a good tze char restaurant in Singapore.
It was certainly nice to come across a Singapore restaurant in Brisbane City in the form of Singapore & Co Kitchen. Apart from the nasi goreng, we were generally happy with the food that we tried that day. Prices are high compared to dining at Singapore hawker centers but are reasonable in the context of eating out in an Australia city. The many Singapore students studying in Brisbane can head here when they feel homesick!
