Inspired by the story of legendary mythical character the Monkey King, Wu Kong takes its cues from the classic 16th-century novel Journey to the West. With interiors themed after the waterfall cave and magic stones that appear in the epic tale, you’ll dine in plush blue booths under twinkling filament lights and glowing glass lanterns, a one-of-a-kind setting for a meal if we ever saw one.
You’ll find a mix of Sichuan, Cantonese and Singapore and Hong Kong street food dishes on the expansive menu, from a lengthy dim sum line up to shareable feeds like spicy double-cooked pork belly and beef brisket lo mein. Prices are very easy on the wallet, so you can splurge on spanner crab and lobster bisque xiao long bao and still have dosh leftover for kong pao chicken, crispy chow mein and of course, fried ice cream for dessert.
The drinks menu is even longer than the food menu, with plenty of wines, beers and cocktails, including a bubble tea cocktail with brown sugar pearls. There’s also some creative numbers like a honey and kumquat lemon margarita and pandan pina colada, or regular non-boozy bubble tea for the non-drinkers.
