10 Black Versions Of Your Favourite Food Worth Getting Your Teeth Black For

9th December 2016

Black food worth going back to

There is a common saying of, “Once you go black, you’ll never go back”. Well, we are pretty sure once you’ve tried all these black dishes, you will go back to have it again and again. Seductive and sexy, these black versions of your favourite dishes are aesthetically pleasing upgrades from the norm.

1. Black waffles


Black charcoal waffles might look a little dubious but they sure taste good with ice-cream! Twenty Grammes offers their Charcoal Waffle ($8.50) plain with salted egg sauce. If you want something fancier, add a single scoop of ice-cream for $3.50 more. You can even mix things up by ordering a Yuan Yang Waffle with Soft Serve ($15) that comes with a delicious drizzle of chocolate sauce.

Address: 753 North Bridge Road, #01-01, Singapore 198721
Opening hours: Mon-Thur & Sun 12pm to 10pm, Fri-Sat 12pm to 1am

2. Black fish and chips


Charcoal Fish And Chips ($14+) at The Pipe District caught our attention with its black exterior that has charcoal added in to give it a slightly earthy taste. Served with either sweet potato fries or regular fries, the fried fish has a nice crunch due to its light batter. Those with picky taste buds can also make a choice between different types of fish here.

3. Black panini


King crab and prawns sandwiched between Squid Ink Panini ($13++) sounds tantalising, but its looks might be a turnoff to some. This panini is a hearty and dense sandwich filled with juicy crab and prawn filling that could easily be a light and satisfying meal for two. Sink your teeth into this as your lounge al fresco at Dolcetto By Basilico.

4. Black egg custard bun


Even though these Mini Black Charcoal Egg Custard Buns ($4.20++ for three buns) from Goodwood Park Hotel don’t contain flowy salted egg lava, they’re still equally shiok to eat. Available at both Min Jiang and Coffee Lounge within the hotel, these are an awesome treat for bao lovers. And don’t worry if you want to bring your prim and proper relatives here, ‘cause these buns don’t actually come with emoticons on top.

5. Black thick toast


Drizzled with malt sugar, liquid marshmallows, salted caramel and topped with coconut ice-cream and toasted nuts, charcoal thick toast, or TAN ($14.90), served at Stateland Cafe certainly sounds good enough to whet our appetite. Baked twice to achieve a crispy texture, this is one toothsome toast to dig into.

6. Black mochi balls


Also from Stateland Cafe are black mochi balls that burst in your mouth. Now, before you judge how this dessert looks, know that it’s responsible for crowds that Stateland consistently attracts. Titled Mochi Burst With Softserve ($15), this plate comes with three fried mochi balls that contain lava cores of cookie butter, lemon curd and salted egg yolk. If this doesn’t tug at your tummy’s heartstrings, it’s hard to say what will.

Located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, DC Comic Super Heroes Cafe offers their signature Batman’s Dark Knight Burger ($25.90++) with black charcoal burger buns, wagyu beef patty, grilled portobello mushroom and a side of nacho chips. With the Batman symbol stamped right on top of the black bun, fans of the superhero are definitely in for a treat here!

8. Black soft serve


Whether you have it with waffles or on its own, Charcoal Vanilla Ice Cream ($6.50) is a must-have at The Cold Pantry. Pair it with a Chocolate Root Beer Waffle ($12.50 with the ice-cream) for something unique. If you prefer your food pink, get their Pink Velvet Waffle ($13.50 with a scoop of ice-cream) instead.

9. Black panna cotta


Made with black sesame, Blancmange ($8.50++) is Issho Izakaya’s black version of a panna cotta that looks aesthetically pleasing and tastes equally good. Served with black sesame ice-cream made in-house, the creamy and smooth panna cotta makes a great ending to your meal here.

10. Black char siew bun


Black Squid Ink Char Siew Bao ($5++ for three) is Mouth Restaurant’s iconic dish that rightly deserves its title with a distinctive colour against bright red char siew. The soft and fluffy buns have a light smokey fragrance that, combined with the char siew’s tenderness and sweet sauce, makes this a must-order here.
