The charming neighbourhood of Katong is home to some of the most incredible cafes, bars, and restaurants in Singapore, including plenty of hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
If you haven’t already heard, there’s a brand new concept worth paying a visit — Supperman Speakeasy & Grill.
Supperman Speakeasy & Grill is a dining concept dreamt up by a young team of talented chefs, bartenders, and established restaurateurs.
You can find the restaurant in the conservation shophouse along Joo Chiat Road (previously occupied by Sinpopo Brand, which has since moved to TANGS in Orchard), with both alfresco and indoor seating options, perfect for dates and larger groups.
Instead of desserts and heritage-style mains, diners can look forward to high-quality, flame-grilled meats alongside specially curated wines and creative cocktails — very fitting, given its location.
Before moving on to the main event(s), you can choose from a selection of starters like the Supperman Caesar (S$18), Smoked Camembert (S$18), or the Grilled Foccacia & Wine (S$15, tasting portion shown above), fresh charcoal-grilled bread served with “beef love” butter and a tasting portion of house wine (S$5 for full glass).
We couldn’t get enough of the indulgent and creamy beef-fat-infused butter, which we gleefully mopped up with focaccia.
Steak takes centre stage here at Supperman.
Fans of Argentine beef, which yields some of the best-tasting steaks (tender and less fatty, with a deeper flavour) must try the 100-day grain-fed Argentinian Black Angus Ribeye Steak (S$38), a 300g portion of steak cooked till medium rare and served with anchovy butter.
Smoky and chewy, with a distinct meaty flavour, and a beautifully charred crust, this was certainly a solid steak I wouldn’t mind having to myself.
But if you’d rather switch it up, alternatives include The Tomahawk (S$118, for 2–3 pax) the braised and charred Whole Rib (S$48), or the Angus Top Blade (S$32), which is served with chimichurri and grilled corn.
Otherwise, don’t miss out on the Supperman Grilled Half Chicken (S$28), a surprisingly memorable main that left me feeling some type of way.
The chicken is placed into an aromatic bay leaf brine, before being grilled over an open fire. The result? Incomparably tender and juicy meat, with a subtle sweetness accentuated by a squeeze of lemon. I also immediately zeroed in on the wickedly addictive crispy skin — so, so good.
Pair your mains with sides like Creamed Baby Spinach (S$14), Sofrito Rice Pilaf (S$12), and the unique Lamb Ragout Mac & Cheese (S$16), comprising tender lamb chunks, rigatoni cooked al dente, honey goat cheese brie, and house-made panko.
As much as I enjoyed the funky flavours (which may be a bit of an acquired taste for some), I would’ve preferred the cheesy sauce to be a lot thicker and creamier, texture-wise.
The side you must order, however, is the Beef Fat Smashed Potatoes (S$14), house-made crispy potatoes with garlic, chives, and fluffy insides.
End the meal on a tipsy note with “the coolest cocktails in the East” like the rum-based Don Vanilla (S$23) with hints of citrus and berries, or the amusingly named Shoddy Man’s Balls (S$21), a sweet, sour, and dangerously drinkable whisky-forward cocktail with sour plum.
Those who prefer something more dessert-like can try Supperman’s take on an espresso martini, the creamy and decadent Kopi Peng (S$21).
Teetotallers need not worry — options on the mocktail menu are equally enticing.
Got an upcoming date night, a group gathering with friends you haven’t seen in ages, or simply need to unwind after a stress-filled week over steak and cocktails?
Supperman Speakeasy & Grill is the place to be!
