(NEW) The Masses: New, Affordable & Creative French Fusion Restaurant Opens Door at Beach Road


The Masses...

Taking over the space from Black Tongue Bistro & Bar, The Masses is a new restaurant that serves simple yet creative French-fusion dishes at a very affordable price. As their name suggests, they seek to provide “Contemporary Happy Food” to the masses. They believed in using fresh, seasonal produce as well as contemporary cooking techniques to bring out the best of its form.

Even though at such a young age, the owner has already made a name for himself. Dylan was one of the founder for Saveur which is a renowned French restaurant in Singapore, best known for its pasta. With the opening of The Masses in less than a week, you can definitely expect surprises from his dishes. If you are working near the Beach road vicinity, you might want to drop by for lunch.

Enjoy all these delicious treats at a very reasonable price!

Chicken Collagen Veloute // $8
Clams, Duckfat, Scallion Oil
The soup was flavourful and has a refreshing sweetness (from the very fresh clams) that lingers in the mouth. The clams were fresh and juicy, and they were quite generous with the portion. Definitely a “perk-you-up” soup. I was charged after drinking it!

The Egg (Hot/Cold) // $9
Ikura, Tobiko, Homemade Potato Chips, Beurre Noisette
This was a very interesting dish! Dylan’s mum recommended us to get this hot and I’m glad we listened to her. The egg which was placed at the bottom was super soft and runny. It went very well with the Ikura and home-made potato chips. The combination was deadly addictive. You have the soft texture from the egg, bursting salty flavour from the Ikura and the crispy element from the chips. A must-try if you visit!

Aus Frementle Octopus Tentacle // $14.90
Pickled Lotus Root, Gohujang Aioli
Don’t let the looks of the octopus tentacle scares you because this was one of my favourite dishes at The Masses! The octopus tentacle was well-grilled; it wasn’t too tough or too chewy. It definitely paired well with the Gohujang Aioli which brought out the flavour of the octopus. What a creative dish! 

Chargrilled Corn // $7.90
Parmesan Cheese, Chipotle Aioli, Caramel Popcorn
The corn was very sweet, goes very well with the chipotle sauce which was a little fiery. The caramel popcorn was a surprise because it matches the corn perfectly. A little bit of saltiness to the already sweet corn. The taste was definitely very contrasting! Simple yet delicious!

Truffle Fries // $11
Parmesan, Truffle Aioli
Very generous portion of fries. The truffle flavour was strong and the fries were thick. Super addictive!

Duroc Pork Loin // $15
Truffle Scrambled Eggs, Plums, Chicharron
The pork was firm and well-marinated. Love how they separate the skin and the meat. The skin was super crispy. The truffle scrambled eggs were fluffy but the truffle flavour wasn’t strong. 

12 HRS Braised US Short Ribs // $18
Pomme Puree, Talinum Salad
This dish won our hearts hand down. The short ribs were well-marinated, has a similar texture to that of beef cheeks but the flavour was not too overpowering. It was super soft and juicy. I also love the mash at the side!

Honey Garlic Miso Chicken Breast // $13.90
Celeriac Puree, Sauteed Kale
I didn’t quite really like this dish because the chicken was not well-cooked. It lacks flavour and the meat was tough and dry. Probably did not cook it longer as they were parts where I could still see blood inside the chicken. The only saving grace for this dish was the celeriac puree which I liked. Dipping the chicken into the sauce makes it better.

Deep-Fried Camebert // $8.90
Yoghurt Ice Cream, Gula Melaka Granola, Fruit Enzyme
The portion was just right so that you won’t feel uneasy or jelat after having it all by yourself. It was very cheesy and goes very well with the yoghurt ice cream which took away the greasiness and jelatness. The nuts added an extra crunch to the overall dessert.

Homemade Banana Cake // $9.90
Rum & Raisin Ice Cream
The banana cake was warm, moist and super rich. My eyes were wide open when I popped it into my mouth. I didn’t expected it to be so tasty. The strong rum and raisin flavour of the ice cream complemented the cake super well. I liked it but one of my friends didn’t. Probably because I’m a little alcoholic.

Popsicle // $6
Juice Fermentation, Lavender Honey
My friend like this but I didn’t. Didn’t quite like the icy texture and plum flavour. Let me know if you like this!
