Ambush – Fast Casual European Dining in the Neighbourhood

I met up with a friend for lunch in Junction 8, Bishan. At first I thought that we would end up in a usual neighbourhood restaurant such as Swensens or Ding Tai Feng. However, I chanced upon an interesting looking restaurant on the 2nd floor offering European food. So, we decided to have our lunch there as it’s not very usual to find a restaurant that offers European cuisine in a neighbourhood shopping centre.

The menu was very special as it was designed to look like newspapers. There were a variety of German, Belgian, Spanish and Italian dishes (and many more that I can’t remember) to choose from. Both of us were attracted by the German Pork Knuckle but too bad they do not have it. In the end, we ordered Smoked Pork Bratwurst, Fish and Chips, Pan-seared Salmon, Raspberry Italian Soda and Iced Peach Tea. The food was quite delicious, although the bratwurst was slightly salty. We paid about S$50 plus for the lunch and I think it is value-for-money.

Overall, I think this restaurant is a good choice if you are tired of the usual restaurants or if you are looking for value-for-money European cuisine.

As for myself, I’ll definitely visit the restaurant again and try their mussels and pork knuckle, and I’ll remember to take more photos and post them here! 🙂
