Media Tasting at Hunger’s Kitchen by Arome
It may take a little challenge to locate Hunger’s Kitchen if this is your first. My friend and I have walked two rounds at Shaw Tower Beach Road before we managed to find Hunger’s Kitchen. You have to walk through a row of hair salons if you’re coming from Suntec City direction. It is more accessible if you’re coming from Bugis direction, Hunger’s Kitchen is located outside of Shaw Tower Beach Road (near Starbucks). At Hunger’s Kitchen, be greeted with a wide range of menu options from cold/ hot appetizer, Asian delights, brown rice bowl, olive oil/ tomato/ cream base pasta, main course, dessert, lunch/ dinner set menu and beverages.
Salmon that melts in the mouth is truly the best. It is topped with kombu, crunchy cucumber, onion, ikura. Pssst, it’s slightly raw if you don’t take raw food. Definitely one of my favourite appetizers from Hunger’s Kitchen. It’s so good and I can’t help but ask the chef the secret behind this salmon. The chef has noted the salmon is slow-cooked for at least 20 minutes.

Salted egg chicken wing had a more pleasant, less-oily-tasting surface in thick and creamy salted egg sauce with a hint of spicy kick from the curry leaf and chilli padi.

This simple but satisfying, Hungry’s cold pasta is colourful and appetising to the eyes. Pasta was smooth and al dente topped with baby scallop, ikura, tobiko, ebiko, kombu, furikake, cress in seaweed cream. Lots of crunch in this dish with generous servings of ikura, tobiko and ebiko.

Healthy oven roasted 1/2 chicken with a beautiful golden-crisp exterior, served with a side of salad and fries. I’ve tried the chicken breast portion and was surprisingly tender with light flavour. This is something that I would crave for after a yoga practice.

Spoilt with choices for pork ribs glaza as you can choose among BBQ, Sze Chuan or Japanese BBQ. Not a fan of their pork ribs as it’s a little tough on texture but the glaze is flavourful and comes with wedges and salad.
Pork ribs at S$17.90/S$28.90.
The texture of the slightly crisp skin and the tender duck was done well. Received a pleasant surprise as it’s not the usual mash but TRUFFLE mash. The mash was amazing smooth that was never lumpy or dry. Special mention to the mushroom with the flavours gushes out a little as we bite. There are also other accompaniments including mini orange slices and Thai asparagus.
Duck confit at S$14.90.
Spoilt for choices with 18 different types of pasta ingredients. Selection of classic pasta dishes like garlic bacon prawn or adventurous Gochujang pork belly pasta with a spicy kick is sure to please spicy food lovers. I feel that both portions of pasta were slightly overcooked but the flavours were good!

Gochujang pork belly pasta at S$11.90.
You can also expect Asian delights at Hunger’s Kitchen! Upgraded nasi lemak to another level with a salted egg chicken cutlet. The generous serving of the savoury, spicy chicken cutlet is topped on fluffy rice and topped with a fried omelette, papadum and sambal chilli.
Salted egg chicken cutlet nasi lemak at S$8.50.
Brown rice CPS is another dish that I would crave for after a good exercise. It comes with not just 1 but 3 proteins namely chicken, pork and salmon!!! I’ve enjoyed the chicken best! It was tender and tasted like sous vide chicken. Served with a serving of healthy brown rice and topped with marinated cherry tomato, broccoli, 63 degrees egg and chicken jus.
Brown rice CPS (Chicken, Pork, Salmon) at S$13.
