Platypus restaurantsare casual Mediterranean bistros, specialising in hand-made pastas and gourmet risottos. The restaurants serve up seasonal gourmet cuisine at affordable prices.
Nicholas has a few key philosophies for his restaurants:
– Fresh produce
– Seasonal ingredients
– No gimmicks
– Affordable gourmet
Prices are kept reasonable by sourcing and using local ingredients and what is in season.
Nicholas made it a point to keep all the items in his menu at under S$20 – this despite the fact that his dishes feature premium ingredient like saffron, caviar and scallops.
He also promise diners that “what you see is what you get” on the menu. All the dishes are plated beautifully. If they do not tally with the pictures in the menu, you can send the items back to the kitchen.
Platypus Kitchenoffers a large selection of hand-made pastas and risottos. Pastas are all made fresh daily and contain no additive preservatives.
These are the items I have tried at Platypus Kitchen:
It is very hard to find a good restaurant with all these factors – 1) convenient location (Bugis Junction); 2) quality food (gourmet pasta and risotto); 3) affordable pricing (all dishes are under s$20); 4) cosy ambient (restaurant can comfortably accommodate 100 pax). Platypus Kitchen fits all these criteria.
I frequent the restaurant and would also recommend it to others. Go try it. 🙂
