Communal New American Restaurant, Singapore
This place (12 North Canal Road #01-01, 6221-7790) is billed as a "New American Restaurant," serving not just burgers and sandwiches, but also a number of Southern dishes like fried chicken, cornbread, and that side of biscuits and gravy above. It was slightly upscale, but still unpretentious, complete with paper napkins and counter-style seating.
And I generally liked it, particularly the mac and cheese, which was thinner than I expected, but nonetheless good enough that it disappeared pretty quickly. Today's soup of the day, a celery root soup, was smooth and satisfying.
Now, some things were a bit of a head-scratcher. I was surprised to find that they used sliced bread for the BELT Sandwich (that's a BLT with egg, in case you're wondering), while the fries seemed like they were frozen. Nonetheless, I'm easily coming back here for the sides. I could probably just go down the list and order one of each.
