Sing, the Singaporean restaurant from former food critic Cuc Lam and restaurateur Jerry Lasco, has officially opened its doors.
The restaurant at 718 West 18th Street started serving satay and wok-fired noodles during its first official dinner service on Monday night, according to a post to its Facebook page. The restaurant has been in the works for more than a year, and was originally set to arrive at the 34th & Ella development before Lasco and Lam decided to open at Lowell Street Market. The restaurant’s current space occupies 1,230 square feet, seating between 20 and 30 diners.
As far as the food is concerned, Singaporean dishes will have a major place on the menu, along with inspiration from Malaysia, China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam. Plates range from snacks like chili-crab rangoon and shrimp chips to satay skewers, boat noodle soup, and char kway teow, a stir-fry of flat rice noodles.
Sing is currently open for lunch and dinner service from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
