Food Review: May May Singapore @ Tras Street | Delightful modern Asian fusion restaurant

The Place It is interesting that our dining scene is becoming more sophisticated, as I notice the increasing trend of new restaurants in Singapore with a focus on fusion cuisine. I happened to squeeze some time during lunch time one week day and was in seek for an interesting restaurant for lunch, and I came across May May restaurant from various media sources. May May opened its doors last December along Tras Street, offering Asian Fusion cuisine. The interior is chic and simple, in a long shophouse fashion with natural sunrays in the middle communal table. The mini plantation, coupled with the natural sunlight, eased my spirits a little as I settled down.
IMG_8125eThe Food I must say I went all for the lunch sets (from $12 onwards), which is so value for money as compared to the dinner menu. The good thing is they have the lunch menu on Saturdays as well, so fret not if you are not working in the vicinity. The rice dons dominate the lunch menu, with various mix of ingredients. There is also an option to switch to noodles if you fancy. I will recommend going for the Lunch Combo ($3) which includes a salad and choice of drink (coffee, tea or soft drinks).
IMG_8136eI had the Butter Poached Cod ($18), which is served generously with wakame, tomatoes, grilled mushrooms, pickled lotus root, wasabi sprouts and egg. The rich colours was a visual treat as well, while I was busy identifying each ingredient before I tucked in. The cod is definitely my favourite here, but I love cod fish anytime. I find the wasabi sprouts interesting as well, my first time having wasabi infused in a vegetable, which has a tinge of wasabi taste that I find acceptable.
IMG_8145My mum went for the Grilled Miso Aubergine ($12) with crispy tofu, tomatoes, grilled mushrooms, pickled lotus root, wasabi sprouts and egg. I am usually not an eggplant person but this version caught my bud with its grilled flavour. The rest of the ingredients are pretty standard across the rice dons, with a heavy focus on Japanese vegetables. My mum fancied a healthier grain, hence she opted for the Quinoa ($2) in substitute of white rice.
IMG_8142eOther rice dons available in the lunch menu include the Braised Pork Belly ($16), Beef Rendang ($16) and Red Chilli Chicken ($15).
IMG_8150eRants The flavours here may be too healthy for some people, so do not expect a rich flavoured meal at May May if that is what you fancy for the day.  

Will I Return Again? The Asian Fusion food has won me over, I love the simplicity of the ingredients and how they are mixed to make up the rice don. The quality ingredients at a reasonable price for lunch is a real treat if you are looking for a nice restaurant other than Maxwell Food Centre.

  2. The braised pork belly one looks good!

    Haha i dont think wasabi sprouts are “infused” with wasabi. They are just naturally spiced like that.
