The newly opened members club, Straits Clan, is positioned in a historic building along the beautiful Bukit Pasoh Road. As you walk up the stylish entrance and enter the building through the magnificent doors, you are momentarily transported back to the 20s. One of the first things you will notice is the Clan Cafe, with its inviting bright colors and retro interiors. Serving a range of healthy plates and grain bowls, Clan Cafe will allow you to indulge in a delicious meal while doing your body some good. The plates feature a perfect combination of Asian flavors and ingredients you would find in hearty brunch dishes. The specialties don’t end with the food though. Watch out for their beverages that have been incredibly crafted in collaboration with A.muse projects.  5 tea blends are available, each inspired by traditional Chinese remedies. If you are feeling adventurous, I would recommend you try the Tom Yum kombucha.

Otah Sandwich

Otah Sandwich ($16)

A hearty and delicious option would be the Otah Sandwich. The bread is toasted freshly, and the crispy exterior is met with a rich slab of mackerel and prawn otah. The cherry on top is the melted 18-month Comte cheese in the sandwich, which makes the warm sandwich as satisfying as it sounds.

Grilled Angus Ribeye Grain Bowl

Grilled Angus Ribeye ($19)

This grain bowl incorporates Australian grilled Angus ribeye with a soft-cooked egg to make a hearty and nutritious bowl that is certainly filling. The base of the bowl is made up of a mixture of grains, red and brown rice, red quinoa and is seasoned with soy sauce. To complete the meal, the bowl also comes with vegetables including purple carrots, mushrooms, and edamame. The Asian and Western flavors complement each other to make a juicy bowl that is nothing but pleasurable to the palette.

Kakiage Grain Bowl

Kakiage ($15)

This diverse vegetarian bowl is definitely one of the highlight dishes for its originality and delicious fusion of flavors and textures. Inspired by Japanese kakiage tempura, the vegetables are crunchy on outside and tender on the inside. Including purple sweet potato, murasaki imo and kale, the variety of flavors will make this a dish you will not get tired of. Sitting on top a composition of mixed grains, the bowl is graced with a silky wafy dressing. But that is not it, the bowl comes with a mushroom medley, kimchi, and spicy pickled cabbage on the side. Flavorful and healthy, this bowl will keep you coming back for more. For maximum insta-worthiness, the bowl comes with a teapot of genmaicha broth. Pour it over the grains and not the vegetables so they don’t become soggy.

Kueh Salat

Kueh Salat ($6.90 per slice)

This cake is the Clan’s take on the traditional Peranakan dessert. Using glutinous rice, pandan leaves and coconut milk, this cake mixed velvety, soft and chewy textures in all the best ways. The cake is colored with blue pew flowers and pandan to ensure no added colorings are used.

Clan Cafe is located at 31 Bukit Pasoh Rd, Singapore 089845
