'Asian comfort food with a local twist' is the lure of the bar and restaurant, tucked within the Peranakan shophouse. The tongue-in-cheek menu highlights its signature Asian Fried Chicken, with names like 'Not a Cock Up' (a vodka-infused crispy wing), 'Soy Lickin Good' (with a honey-soya glazing), 'Swicy Hot Chick' (it has a Korean chilli coating), and the restaurant's version of har cheong kai ($12 for four, $20 for eight). For heavier bites, Black Nut offers interesting variations of a chicken and beef burger with additions like kimchi and homemade rempah spice paste.
On to the drinks, which is really what most people are at Emerald Hill for. Black Nut goes for some exotic flavours like chendol, and claims it uses fresh fruit in its cocktails, which run from $18 to $22.
