Fast Casual European Dining at Ambush

Ambush is a pretty interesting name for a restaurant, don't you think? It's almost as if we diners should expect to be ambushed by something (hopefully) delicious on our plates :)

What we also found interesting is that the menu in the restaurant is designed to look like a newspaper (or a publication of some sort). Thankfully it's high(er) quality paper than dirty newsprint! Ambush serves up dishes from several countries all around Europe, so whether you're in a mood for Italian Pasta or Pizza, German bratwurst and sauerkraut or Spanish Paella, it's probably on the menu.

Drinks - Peach Soda (SGD3.80) and Earl Grey Latte (SGD4.20).

We very much liked the Mixed Pot (SGD18.20, with Garlic Bread), which is a large pot of mussels and clams, cooked in your choice of sauce. We chose Vin Blanc (white wine) sauce, which we thought was a good choice as the resulting (relatively) light sauce didn't overpower the taste of the clams and the mussels. Oh, and it came with bits of bacon floating in the broth. Everything tastes better than bacon :)

The Smoked Bratwurst with Rosti (SGD12.20) was only outstanding in its' oiliness; otherwise it was pretty much very ordinary.

Although the food isn't that great, for the price of ~SGD20 per person we feel that Ambush is very good value for money - besides, there isn't really much in the way of competition in the mall.

Ambush is in Junction 8 mall near Bishan MRT. Non-halal.
