Our Story

Local Bites with a Twist

For over 20 years, the owners of CREATURES reinterpreted favourites, jazzing them up with an Asian flair. When they moved into their new home, they combined their love for cooking and tasteful interiors, and began inviting families and friends for intimate home dining experiences. With a passion for bringing out flavours through natural ingredients and experimenting with texture, the owners amassed a menu of their own creations after decades of thoughtful cooking. CreatureS, being their debut restaurant – brings that cosy home dining experience to all, with an aim to make the restaurant a habitat of creature comforts.

The concise, constantly changing menu speaks for the restaurant’s growing confidence and passion in bringing heart and art on a plate, inspired by the heirlooms of traditional Asian and Peranakan cuisines, married with a modern and current take on presentation and flavor profiles. Also, all cakes and desserts are homemade, largely with a local flair. Enjoy the sweet delights with artisanal brew or bespoke cocktails from the restaurant – you will find yourself just right at home.

THE SETTING

Atmospheric Dining Enclave

Desker Road, once Singapore’s oldest and notorious red-light district, is now home to old-time shopkeepers, adventurous backpackers, migrant workers, small modern Soho offices and a myriad of charming back alleys. With its whiff of old-world charm, there is a designated effort to retain the area as a special conservation area.

CreatureS may be the best address along Desker Road as an atmospheric dining enclave that is cosy and contemporary – a temple to the city’s new wave of casual fine dining in an unexpected, yet charming location. The restaurant feels like a stately Peranakan home with a new cosmopolitan energy – set to enshrine the heritage of the traditional art of cooking and dining, while kicking in contemporary elements for diners to explore and relish.

Chef Jardine D’Cruz on ‘Economic Rice’ – The Food Journal

When I was younger, I ate economical rice almost every day to save money. But I seldom do so now as I cook. Sweet and sour pork, bean sprouts and steamed fish are some of the dishes I’d order at the economy rice stall. That’s the beauty of it – you can either keep it...
