Ever wanted to try dishes like goulash, blinis, or spätzle? You can find all that, and more, at EATcetera, an all-day Pan-European dining concept in the heart of the Alexandra and Redhill district.
Embark on a whirlwind trip around Europe as you tuck into an extensive array of dishes influenced by the flavours of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Russia, and Belarus.
Whether you’re having a date night, a girls’ day out, or even a corporate dinner, EATcetera, with its snazzy yet unpretentious interior, is a versatile spot you should totally visit.
Even better — the restaurant is located a mere three minutes’ walk from Redhill MRT station.
If you find it hard to resist a platter of cheeses or cold cuts, go for the all-encompassing Mixed Deli Platter (S$44), a sharing portion of assorted European cold cuts and cheeses with condiments, salami, Black Forest ham, smoked bone-in ham, gruyere, cambozola, and camembert cheese.
Otherwise, order a bread basket with a selection of Three Dips (S$18): pork schmalz, liver spread, and herbed cream cheese.
If you’re craving something warm and soothing, the traditional Polish Flaki Beef Tripe Soup (S$14), which is best enjoyed with Our Famous Garlic Baguette (S$12), is your best bet.
The Dranikis, the national dish of Belarus, otherwise known as Grandma’s Crispy Potato Pancakes, also come highly recommended. They pair wonderfully with a side of Belarusian Sour Cream “Classic (S$11), Smoked Salmon ($14) or wine-braised Sauteed Mushrooms ($14).
A Pan-European feast ain’t complete without the meat. Meats like beef, lamb rump, pork collar, and chicken breast are grilled in a traditional Josper charcoal oven till smoky, charred, and irresistibly tender, taking on the form of the Legendary Signature Hanging Skewers (from S$24).
Singaporeans would also be familiar with the Crispy Oven-Roasted Pork Knuckle (S$36), served alongside sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, mustard, and dark beer sauce.
Once you’ve settled on a side dish or grilled meat, dive into the plethora of rich, hearty, and comforting mains. The Hungarian Goulash (S$33) boasts tender, melt-in-mouth chunks of veal, seasonal vegetables, and buttery spätzle, an egg-based, noodle-like German dumpling.
Why not treat yourself to one of the national dishes of Austria, the Wiener Schitnzel (S$42)? Breaded, pan-fried veal cutlet served with potato salad and lingonberries — it’s hard to say no to that.
You can also find weekday specials at EATcetera. Come by on Tuesdays for perfectly fluffy, crispy-edged blinis, or Russian Pancakes (S$68) with sour cream, blackcurrant jam, and for a touch of luxury, salmon caviar.
Cuddle up with your boo over a Fondue Dinner For Two (S$82) on Sunday evenings from 5pm–9.30pm. You get an assortment of crusty sourdough loaf, baby potatoes, gherkins, and pearl onions to be dipped into an authentic Swiss cheese fondue prepared with gruyere, emmentaler, and appenzeller cheese.
Dessert is not to be missed.
The signature Kaiserschmarrn (S$18) is an ever-popular traditional Austrian dessert comprising fluffy, shredded pancakes with rum raisins, while the Russian Honey Layer Cake, a caramelized honey cake stacked with cream and honey icing, topped with biscuit crumbs, hazelnuts, and strawberries, is the epitome of the word “decadence”.
Moving on to the drinks, unwinding over coffee, tea, and desserts is a classically Viennese affair, and you can do the same with cups of Julius Meinl coffee and Vienna Hot Chocolate (from S$6), which can be ordered with or without whipped cream.
But of course, if you’re in the mood for some tasty tipples, choose from a variety of German and Belarusian craft beers, alongside Austrian wines and craft cocktails like the Choco Scotch Martini (S$22).
All things considered, EATcetera is a unique hidden gem worth visiting if you’d like to take your tastebuds on a gastronomic adventure around Europe. Do note that the restaurant opens till 12am daily, so you can eat, drink, and make merry till the wee hours of the evening!
