Moonbow Restaurant Review: Brunch at Dempsey Hill

Moonbow Restaurant is a new restaurant in Dempsey HIll that opened in January 2021. It is helmed by a famous Singapore chef known as Ironman Chef Heman Tan. The restaurant serves “modern European cuisine with an Asian influence”. We were there for weekend brunch recently.

If you find that the new Moonbow restaurant at Dempsey looks familiar, it is because it has taken over the premises formerly occupied by Greek restaurant, Blu Kouzina which is now in the unit next door. If you read our post on Blu, you will notice that the lighting, flooring and structure has remained largely the same. The furniture has been changed to good effect. The plush seats now exude an air of luxury in the restaurant.

The non-airconditioned section at the back of the restaurant has similarly been made-over. The blue and white Greek style have given way to a more contemporary style, which I suppose is in keeping with the theme of the new Moonbow restaurant.

According to Wikipedia, “a moonbow (also known as a moon rainbow or white rainbow or feelybow) is a rainbow produced by moonlight rather than direct sunlight.” Chef Heman is a multi-talented chef. You can read more about him in this 2016 New Paper article: Former drug addict is now chef, ceramicist and triathlete. We were told that some of the crockery at Moonbow were designed by him.

Here are pictures of the Moonbow restaurant menu. We decided to go with two items from the brunch menu: The Big English Breakfast and Fin & Leather’s Big Breakfast ($29 each). We also opted for the bread and coffee ($5 per person).
