Singapore is a society built on multiple cultures and religions. Our society grows ever more global, and it shows in our culinary scene as well. What we call ‘Singaporean food’ is, after all a fusion of diverse elements derived from several cuisines, best embodied by our national dish, the ever-adaptable rojak. And as more cultures come to our shores, our culinary palette grows.
The diverse cuisine available in Singapore is very remarkable and one very notable cuisine that we all seem to appreciate is the American-style diner. A cuisine so uncomplicated it has grown to become one of the favourite staples in the island city. From waffles, to pancakes and milkshakes, it sure made an impact to the dining preference of people in Singapore. Hence, OverEasy has become a household name since its launch in 2009. It has expanded from its original Fullerton outlet and now has found a home at the Liat Towers in Orchard Road (the site of the first McDonald’s in Singapore, fittingly enough). Nine years on, its impact has not diminished, and has even grown.
Excellent food, Excellent Atmosphere
Stepping into OverEasy feels like entering a time machine. OverEasy’s signature retro American styling effortlessly captures the vibe and feel of the 60s and 70s, both in the atmosphere and in its menu.
OverEasy serves classic diner fare, like burgers, wings, and American-style breakfasts. Their speciality is the To-Die-For Burger ($24), made with wagyu chuck patties and topped with OverEasy’s signature burger sauce. Another favourite is the Truffle Burger ($28), which includes Swiss cheese, sauteed onions and mushrooms, and truffle mayonnaise. Both burgers are served with soft, warm brioche buns.
Brunch is also served all-day on weekends. Their brunch menu includes specialities such as the Eggslut sandwich ($18), Hangover Part IV ($28), and their Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Soup ($20).
A Clubbing Experience to Di(n)e For
The food and atmosphere aren’t the only things that set OverEasy apart, though. At night, the restaurant transforms into a space groove and Britpop club paradise. This dance floor has hosted internationally renowned acts, such as RAC, Star Slinger, Andy Hart, and This Soft Time Machine, among others.
OverEasy is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. With so much to offer, it’s no wonder it’s still going strong after almost ten years in the business.
