Finally made a trip to Five & Dime! I’m actually looking forward to their Golden custard (Salted Egg Yolk!) LAVA CAKE! But its out of stocks when i reached. ): oh wells. But yes, back to Five & Dime. A very european exterior with red bricks ceiling, tainted windows and a white coat standing along the street. Open into bricks walls with wooden furnitures. Chic and simple design. Quite a small area too, probably around 8 tables for seating and a bar table top.
Simple menu with a few starters, mains and sides choices. Their weekend menu is more brunch like while weekday menu is more western like with food like pastas, fish & chips, cajun chicken etc. They were have 1-1 for some of their drinks. So we ordered a somersby apple cider. Slurpss. We ordered one of their starters – Mac & Cheese ($15). Quite different from the usual where it’s just macaroni and melted mozzarella cheese instead, this had an additional lobster sauce. You can taste bits of lobster chunks too! Its quite creamy more than cheesy though.
Then we ordered Seared Salmon ($23) and Mentaiko Pasta ($18). The pasta is cooked to al dente. It’s a creamy dish, and had good mixture of cod fish roe and mentaiko. Their portions are quite generous. Very filling after the meal.
