10 Eateries in Singapore That Serve Sous Vide Food Under S$15

21 November
Sous Vide Food

Most methods of cooking have been around for hundreds of years and new techniques of cooking rarely come along, but sous vide cooking is one of the exceptions. The key to obtaining consistent results in cooking is easily done by sous vide (pronounced “sue-veed”).

Sous vide means “under vacuum” in French, which refers to the technique of vacuum-sealing the food in a bag and immersing it in a precise temperature water bath. This is a popular technique used by professional chefs and restaurants and it is a cooking technique that is becoming more prevalent everywhere else.

Here are 10 Eateries in Singapore That Serve Sous Vide Food Under S$15.

#1 DON.档

Opened late last year by three young hawkers, Don.档 specialises in Japanese Western cuisine and they are definitely not your typical coffee shop Japanese stall. The Mentaiko Salmon Don (S$9.90) may look overwhelming at first glance but this bowl can satisfy any Mentaiko cravings in no time.

The Burning Oak Iberico Pork Cheek


Singapore’s hawker scene has certainly upped its game. Located in Simpang Bedok Food Center, The Burning Oak exudes a rustic yet modern charm that resembles a Japanese-American grill bar off the streets of New York.

Marinated in soy sauce and honey, the Iberico Pork Cheek (S$12) is sous vide for 10 hours before it gets chargrilled. This would go perfectly with an ice cold beer on a cold rainy night.

A Noodle Story is a Michelin Bib Gourmand 2017 listed stall offering Singapore-style ramen which comes in three sizes – Small (S$5.90), Medium (S$7.20) and Large (S$8.50).

The noodles are a mish-mash of Japanese ramen and Hong Kong-style wonton mee. But the slab of sous vide char siew with homemade sambal and dried shrimps give it a Singaporean identity.

Established by The Astronauts Group, Ninja Cut is the second installation in the Ninja brand. Compared to its precedent, Ninja Bowl, the food offered at Ninja Cut has healthier and more unique options to choose from.

The Gimme Chimi Chicken (S$14) is fantastic. Sous vide chicken breast marinated with Cajun spice to add a slight kick of flavour and homemade chimichurri sauce to add some tanginess. Who says healthy food can’t taste good?

Located in the National University of Singapore (NUS), Waa Cow! has finally opened a second outlet at Raffles Place MRT’s Raffles Xchange.

The Signature Wagyu Beef Rice Petite Bowl (S$11.90) is the star of the show. Using wagyu beef from America’s Snake River Farms, it is sous vide for a full a full day before it is torched with the house-special nikiri sweet sauce. The dish is topped with an onsen egg and Japanese sour plum to balance out the meaty flavour.

Brothers in Fine Food Butcher's Daughter


By the folks behind Penny University, this Muslim-owned café in Tampines West Community Club is another chic place to hang out.

The Butcher’s Daughter (S$14) is a popular brunch favourite. The dish may look nothing out of the ordinary but the flavours do pack a punch!

Makcik Chicken Confirm Steeemmm

Founded by a husband-and-wife duo, Makcik Chicken is a Muslim-owned takeout shop with a cheeky social media persona. Sadly, the halal eatery is only available via delivery (through their website, Deliveroo, Honestbee, and Ubereats).

The Confirm Steeemmm Chicken Rice (S$9.50) looks nothing short of the regular chicken rice (except for the Hanjuku egg). However, from the ordering process to having it delivered, Makcik Chicken does promise a refreshing experience which is very different from ordering it at a hawker centre.

Mon to Sun: 12pm – 8pm

Angmo Food Rice Bowl

Located at Badaling Coffeeshop in Ang Mo Kio, this western-style stall stands out amongst the other typical coffeeshop stalls. Not only do they serve Western food, they have a small range of delectable rice bowls below S$10.

The Angus Beef Rice Bowl (S$7.90) comes with a beautiful serving of medium-pink Angus beef, sautéed cabbage, sweet crunchy corn and a poached egg. A Western and local fusion of flavours in a rice bowl at an affordable price. What more can we ask for?

Plum & Rice Fish Set

As the stall name suggests, Plum, or in this case Umeboshi, is the main component added to the rice and porridge sets here. Umeboshi is a type of salted Japanese plum that aids in digestion and counters fatigue.

At Plum & Rice, each set meal (S$4) is served with Umeboshi rice or porridge and you can top up  S$2 for a sous vide codfish (S$6).
