Little Creatures Opens Up A Branch In Singapore And People Are Going Crazy Over It

James Chan

Little Creatures Singapore

Based in Fremantle, Western Australia, Little Creatures has opened a brewpub right here in Singapore! Having done my degree in Perth, I was pretty stoked when I heard the news.

If you want a table, you’ll have to book early because this place is gaining popularity day after day and you can expect it to be crowded.

The Food

Similar to its Perth branch, Little Creatures Singapore brews and serves their beers on site. You can even ask for a quick guided tour if you like (if they’re not too busy). They have nine beers on tap featuring crowd favorites like Pale Ale, Bright Ale, Pilsner, IPA and Rogers.

For the food, the prices might be a little steep but there’s no denying that their dishes taste pretty darn good (as you’ll understand after reading on).

little creatures mushroom risotto

Mushroom Risotto, $25

Wild Mushroom, Onion, White Wine, Parmesan Cheese

Might not look like much but this dish definitely packs a punch with regards to flavor. The risotto was perfectly cooked, not too soggy nor too hard and each individual grain was chocked full of a rich mushroom taste.

little creatures beef burger

Beef Burger, $28

Caramelized Onions, Bacon, Tomato, Cheddar, Fries and Smoked Paprika Mayonnaise

Don’t overthink this. It is as advertised. There’s nothing special about this other than the Paprika Mayonnaise which leaves a nice lingering spicy aftertaste. The beef was just a tad over cooked though but the tomatoes and bacon fat made up for that dryness.

little creatures fish and chips

Fish & Chips, $26

Tartare Sauce and Lemon

When it arrived, it smelled extremely fishy but be prepared for a big surprise when you take a bite as there was practically no lingering fish taste. The batter they use for the fish is also very light and crispy. My only gripe about this dish is that the tartare sauce might be a little too sweet.

little creatures magarita pizza

Magarita Pizza, $22

Sundried Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil

If they had Pepperoni, I would have ordered Pepperoni but alas, it’s not on the menu. No regrets though as this was my FAVORITE dish of the night. Maybe it’s just me but I felt that the sundried tomatoes had a bite of spiciness to them. The best thing? That light and tasty pizza crust. I could eat two of these babies with no problem.

little creatures pork belly

Pork Belly, $27

Pork Crackling, Red Cabbage Sauerkraut

Super tender pieces of meat combined with melt-in-your-mouth fats and crispy skin. Wow. Sounds like a great combination but wait, there’s more! There are a couple of strategically placed pork crackling pieces here and there which makes this dish really irresistible. Perfect with any of their beers too!

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

I’m a little divided on this one. On one hand, the food and beer is good but it is a little pricey. It’s not economical to be coming back every other day but good for special occasions for sure. If you’re there “just for the alcohol”, that works too!

26@Marina

I was in the Marina Bay Sands area, and famished. At that point, all I knew was that I wanted food.

Shuffling my leaden legs forward, I stumbled upon the unassuming establishment of 26@Marina.

As I was pondering the number of sides that would satiate my rumbling stomach, I was introduced to Carol. She gave some choice recommendations, and made sure I left in contentment.

26@Marina crispy pork belly

Crispy Pork Belly Salsa ($13.90)

Carrying just the right amount of fat, each slice of pork belly had a crisp, golden-brown cracking. I especially love it when the fat just melted in my mouth!

26@Marina sambal belacan

Feeling that a little something was amiss, I added some chilli, and that sealed the deal for me. The homemade chilli sauce helped bring out the flavour of the dish, and at the same time added a punch to the dish.

Aptly named Ooh La La Belachan Chilli, it is made with a special homemade recipe and is up for sale at $8 a bottle, but produced in limited quantities. Naturally, they sell out pretty quickly.

26@Marina stuffed mushrooms

Stuffed Mushroom ($11.90)

The dish was simple, but after I had my first bite, I knew this was not your regular stuffed mushrooms. This was when Carol explained that this dish was made with her own secret recipe, consisting of chopped sausages and bacon, giving you that juicy goodness that just OOZES out!

This is the dish that has stood the test of time at 26@Marina, and remains a crowd favourite even after all these years.

26@Marina sausage and pork chop

U.S. Pork Chop and Sausage ($12.90)

By this time, the angry rumbling in my stomach has subsided, but when my main was served, my jaw dropped. The portions were so huge!

The sausage was large and juicy, and was filling enough to be served as a main in itself! Imported from the States, the meat was hearty and satisfying to the last bite. For the pork chop, it was well-seasoned accompanied with a nice, herb-y taste.

On the other hand, the fries by the side did not cut it for me, as they were a tad too bland.

Others to try

If you have diet restrictions, other bestsellers include the beer-battered dory, classic cheeseburger, and spicy hot wings.

26@Marina happy hour pricing

Verdict

As I finished the last of my meal, it occurred to me that this was a fantastic spot for a gathering with friends. Additionally, they offer a wide selection of alcoholic beverages, serve superb bites. All these with a KILLER view of Marina Bay.

The staff were friendly and very accommodating, and I would most definitely be making a trip back in the near future. Until next time!
