Home Singapore at Clarke Quay is a day-to-night cafe and bar

home singapore - brunch flatlay

Brunch peeps and night owls, you’ll want to pay some attention to what we’ve got for you: Home Singapore is the newest kid on the Clarke Quay block and has got both camps covered, quite literally from dawn to dusk.

home singapore - view

Barely a month old, Home Singapore is a dual-concept space on the second floor of a corner block of Clarke Quay. Read: a much better view of the Singapore River than their peers stuck on the ground level.

More on how Home Singapore is dual-faceted in its appeal━by day, you’ll find brunch staples worthy of any cafe, and when night falls, the brunch menu goes to bed when the lights come on and the place goes abuzz with alcoholic tipples, and the all-day dining menu takes centre stage.

home singapore - live band

The weekend runs all week long here, with late-night hours, as well as live bands and DJs hitting the stage on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Expect themed nights too, so you can pick your poison through updates on their Instagram page!

home singapore - pain perdu

Picture-perfect mornings should all start with Pain Perdu ($16++), or French toast to the layman.

Beautifully custardy within, the thick-cut French toast has a crisp, caramelised exterior, is drizzled with maple syrup, and finished with a literal rainbow of colour from fresh fruit and edible flowers.

If you’re like me, eggs Benny is a non-negotiable at all brunches. The Bacon and Mushroom Benedict ($18++) is one of the eggs Benedict options here, layered with multiple slices of crisp bacon, sliced button mushrooms and spinach.

It may look pale, but the Hollandaise sauce packs a tasty punch that ties all the elements stacked on the English muffin together. 

home singapore - salmon namjin croissant

A surprising favourite was the Salmon Namjin Croissant ($23++), which you shouldn’t dismiss lightly either. แจ่ว, or nam jim jaew, is a Thai dipping sauce which bursts with sweet, sour, and spicy notes from shallots, lime juice, sugar, fish sauce and more━a perfect match for the strong-tasting flaked salmon in this croissant.

home singapore - cafe drinks

No cafe is complete without a bevy of drinks, and at Home Singapore, you’ll find Coconut Latte ($7.50++), Orange Americano ($7.50++) and others, brewed with coffee beans from Malaysia that the team has specifically brought in.

home singapore - donut mocha latte

Of special note is the Donut Mocha Latte ($8++), where fresh-frothed cream is poured into the mocha to create an overflowing doughnut of cocoa powder on top of your cuppa.

home singapore - alcohol

When the sun sets, Chorong Chorong Soju (from $18++) comes out to play. For something fancier, consider one of their cocktails instead: there’s Sour Plum (Ume子酱 zǐ jiàng), Strawberry Sorbet (草莓冰淇淋 cǎo méi bīng qí lín), even a White Choc Milkshake (白色幽默 bái sè yōu mò) if you’re feeling something indulgent. Each cocktail is priced at $22++.

home singapore - menbosha burger

The line-up of food is just as exciting, with Menbosha Burger ($26++) stealing the limelight with its house-made prawn patty.

Think an ultra-thicc minced prawn cutlet with lashings of house-made gochujang mayonnaise and fresh slaw━seafood lovers don’t miss out on this one.

home singapore - abalone risotto

Alternatively, Abalone “Risotto” ($28++) is a 전복죽 (jeonbok-juk)-inspired dish; the Jeju speciality is reimagined here with Japanese Koshihikari rice, a whole Korean abalone, and diced oyster mushroom.

Cooked somewhat like a risotto, this is comfort food at its finest if you like this sort of thing, with earthy, shroomy flavours and briny seafood notes cooked into each grain of rice.

home singapore - black pepper crab udon

Then, there’s Black Pepper Crab Udon ($20++), a wok-fried special that’s inspired by Singapore’s iconic pepper crab dish.

Topped with a whole, deep-fried soft-shell crab, this was piquant and moreish.

home singapore - wagyu rendang

Down the same fusion road is Wagyu Beef Steak Rendang ($45++), which stars an Aussie Wagyu skirt steak seared to medium-rare doneness.

It’s paired with a house-made rendang sauce which stands out for its spice-heavy profile, balanced out by the tart cherry tomatoes and fresh salad the dish is paired with.

home singapore - nasi lemak

One of Home Singapore’s signature dishes is Gochujang Ayam Nasi Lemak ($22++), which swaps out the usual ayam berempah for a gochujang-marinated chicken leg, marinated overnight for extra tastiness.

It’s oven-baked so you feel less guilty indulging, with sambal that’s cooked in-house; it’s slightly gritty because of the ikan bilis that’s been blended into the rempah!

home singapore - margherita pizza

For a classic, you can’t go wrong with Flower Margherita Pizza ($28++), layered thickly with an appetising tomato sauce. What makes this a ‘gram-worthy dish is the flowers on the pizza, formed with balls of fresh mozzarella and halved cherry tomatoes. 

home singapore - sides

If you’re just here for snacks and drinks, they’ve got a comprehensive menu of bar bites too, such as Baked Camembert ($28++), Yangnyeom Chicken ($16++) AKA Korean fried chicken, Moo Ping ($12++) and such.  

home singapore - la zi ji

Their La Zi Ji ($18++), tossed in a house concoction of spices, is super addictive. 

home singapore - chicky gizzy

And for something more unique, there’s Chicky Gizzy ($16++), which gets you deep-fried chicken gizzards with a gochujang-based dip. These are pretty labour-intensive to clean and prepare!
