Cafe Explorer: Wildcard

Wildcard, the latest dining establishment brought to us by the talented individuals behind Maxi Coffee Bar, is a hidden gem located at Furama RiverFront. 

Perhaps this part of Singapore is where you seldom head to, but the hotel is quite near the new Havelock MRT station. With its unique concept as a coffee and wine bar, Wildcard offers more than just your average dining experience. We suspect the team doesn’t want to call this a “café” though!

While it’s a temple to caffeine in the daytime and a laid-back place to have a glass or two of wine in the evening, the constant is that there’s soul-nourishing food all day: A small but punchy menu of compellingly uncomplicated dishes planned well, seasoned properly, done right – a rarity in the casual dining scene.

There’s the Oxtail Donut, for instance – savoury braised oxtail ragout within a spherical doughnut that’s glazed with espresso barbecue sauce and topped with bone marrow crumbs and chives. Or the fried Jerusalem artichokes with onions and comte shaved over the top. Or the pasta dish that begs to be washed down with a glass of something grapey: Paccheri served cacio e pepe style but with pesto and topped with a silky egg yolk. I could go on, but I’d probably just end up listing nearly the entire menu.

Whether you’re a seasoned foodie seeking a new adventure or simply looking for a remarkable dining experience, Wildcard Restaurant promises to be a remarkable addition to your culinary journey. Discover the magic and innovation that awaits at this extraordinary establishment, where the wild and wonderful flavors of the culinary world come to life.
