Comfort food at its best
A meal at Morsels feels like coming home. The rustic barnyard-style restaurant takes after a cosy living room with a showcase kitchen at the back where you can watch chef Petrina Loh and her team whip up comforting dishes that speak to the heart. Everything you see is made from scratch, from the bottles of pickles and ferments that line the table to painstaking crumbles that take hours of preparation.
Mainstays on the menu include the steamed Venus clams in a fig and chicken broth with cabbage kimchi and wakame pickle – each sip is a comforting embrace that soothes the soul. There are some new additions worth mentioning too – the Hokkaido scallops are placed on top of a seared cut of pork belly, and their contrasting flavours come together with fermented sunchoke puree and tamarillo jus. For something more substantial, those with an adventurous palate will enjoy the aged duck served with spicy rice cake and homemade chye poh while those who want to play it safe can opt for the firecracker duroc pulled pork with pasta and habanero pesto.
In a hurry? Morsels also offers a quick and easy noodle set lunch ($28) that rotates every week where you get to try creations such as the pork jowl char siew wonton mee or the Duck-Kut-Teh. And if you happen to be there on a Thursday, you can get two tacos at $15 or at $25 with a glass of wine.
Dinner is priced from $85 to $135 per person. A nine-course vegetarian menu is also available at $85. Lunch is priced at an affordable $45 per person or $95 for the omakase experience.
