Ten+ - Singapore’s First Safari Theme Bistro [MEDIA INVITE]

Glamping is one of the activities that has been gaining traction in the past few years. It has elevated the humble camping experience, spicing it up with glamourous and luxurious features to the natural elements. Now you can partly experience glamping at Ten+, Singapore’s first safari theme bistro that simulates the ambience of dining during glamping.

Ten+ Entrance
Located in Sungei Tengah, Ten+ is surrounded by Singapore’s natural greenery, farms and nurseries. It is probably as close as to the middle of nowhere, which is a suitable setting for a glamping café. One part of the indoor seating area is furnished with knee-height foldable camping tables and foldable canvas camping chairs. This camping furniture is used in the three al-fresco seating tents. For those who prefer regular-height dining tables, this option is also available at the front and back of the indoor dining area.

We started the meal with Torched Aburi Prawn Pasta ($23). The plating made it look like the western version of prawn noodles. The al-dente fettuccine is sitting on the robust and umami prawn bisque. The prawns are fresh, and perfectly cooked with a lovely smoky flavour from the torching. In each bite of the pasta, you can taste the popping texture of the tobiko and seaweed. We polish this dish completely, except for the prawn shells.

Flame Grilled Angus Burger ($23). It is one of the best burgers I have tasted in a while. The patty is cooked to medium-rare, juicy and packs with nice beef flavour, while the brioche bun is nicely seared, light and with a touch of sweetness. The lettuce is perfectly placed at the bottom, preventing the juice from the tomato, gherkin and patty soak into the bottom of the bun. Topped that with bacon and cheese, it was a delicious burger.

The burger is served with addictive curly potato fries and garden salad with vinaigrette dressing making it a complete dish. Yummy!!

LD & I also tried their bar bites. Moo Ping (4 sticks, $14) served with bonito flakes. We like the presentation and the moo ping has a caramelised exterior. However, we find the interior is too dry, like it was overcooked. The saltiness level is on the high side, suitable with beer but not for regular dining.

Battered Fish Bites ($14). A lovely bar snack, perfectly fried. The mini flesh fish is coated with crispy batter, followed by moist fish meat. The tartar sauce compliments the fish bites nicely.

Crispy Kawa Ebi ($15). One of our favourite snacks in a Japanese restaurants. Crisp, plump and loaded with intense prawn flavour. A few drizzles of lemon juice with enhance the flavour and balance the saltiness in this dish. The portion is very generous, and we were unable to finish the whole dish.

If you love pork knuckle or came with a bigger group, I suggest you try their Crispy Pork Knuckle ($32). Most of the customers will order this and it looks super yummy. Unfortunately, it was only LD & I, we certainly won’t be able to finish this.

For drinks, LD ordered Cocktail Lychee Pea ($15), which was refreshing and very generous with the alcohol. I ordered Smoked Oak Mocha ($7). Nice mocha, with a hit of smokiness at the end.

CBK Verdict: It can be a bit challenging going to the café for a non-driver. However, once arrived, you will be rewarded with a great safari dining experience. While the menu is on a smaller scale, the team made sure that each item on the menu is delicious. We will return if we are around the area. Cheers!!
