Looking for new places to dine in now that covid restrictions are lifted? Here’s a stylish restaurant in Prinsep that’s hidden behind a nostalgic old-school shop you least expected.
Mama Diam Restaurant Bar
Aptly named Mama Diam since the speakeasy bar is hidden behind a shop that looks like a traditional mama shop along Prinsep street in the Bugis area.
Upon finding the entrance, diners will be treated to a menu that puts a modern twist to iconic local favourites.
A shelf in the mama shop hides the actual restaurant away. Can you spot it?
Here’s a video from Instagrammer @sebastianang revealing the secret if you have trouble finding it.
Here are some of the restaurant’s signature dishes to try if you are dropping by:
- Bak Kut Teh Udon
- Crab Kueh Pie Tee
- Drunken Chicken Roulade
- Pandan Sour
- Sng Mei Potion
You can also have a sample of everything with the 9 Bites of Wonders dish.
Besides food, there’s also a unique dessert menu that has sweet creations made with a local twist.
- Thai Tea Creme Brulee
- Homemade Churros with Caramel Kaya Dip
Definitely must try.
