Applause (or One Night Only?) on River Valley Road, Singapore
I'm not sure if I got the name of this place correct. The big neon sign outside says Applause, but the receipt says One Night Only, which is also painted on the side of the building. Well, either name suggested that this might be a stand-up comedy club or live music bar. Instead, it's an American diner that now sits on the location formerly occupied by Tony's Pizza (397 River Valley Road, 6236-1248).
To be specific, it focused on Southern food (think: fried chicken, chicken fried steak, and étouffée). I went for the blackened catfish above, and was a bit disturbed by the small puddle of water sitting underneath it on the plate. I didn't care for the overly soft cornbread either, even though the creamed corn was fine. Well, even if it were better, I doubt that I'd come back given how high the prices are.
