The new Overeasy at One Fullerton boasts cinematic influences and a refreshed diner menu
It's been eight years since Overeasy at One Fullerton opened its doors, much to the glee of ravenous patrons along Singapore's charming riverfront. Indeed, the renowned diner has long solidifed its repertoire as the it diner on our shores. Fun buns and spiked milkshakes? Where else but Overeasy?
Eight years is a substantial amount of time, and instead of resting on their laurels, the spacious diner has decided to celebrate with a good old-fashioned revamp — except the new face of Overeasy is anything but gaudy. While retaining the core elements of a classic American diner, this reboot is heavily taken over by the edgy spirit of the 1960s and 1970s.
The entrance is an alluring sight, which draws you in with a bar view akin to a cinema set imbuing old-world charm. It comes as no surprise that the inspiration behind it was Quentin Tarantino's cult film Pulp Fiction. Think neon-lit signage, bold red-checkered tiles, and powder blue booths to match. The Instagram-worthy elements stay consistent throughout the rest of the restaurant — accented with nostalgic PacMan arcade machines as well as cheeky quotes in the bathrooms.
Food wise, your favourite diner classics are updated with an elevated touch (the new menu can also be found at Overeasy Orchard). Their Truffled Lobster Mac & Cheese puts a sophisticated spin on the wholesome combi with succulent Maine lobster and a stellar white wine-lobster broth. If you're looking for snacks to spilt with your squad, try their Smoked Cheddar Jalapeño Corn Dogs — featuring a smoked cheddar hot dog encased in a jalapeño cornmeal batter and topped with a housemade sriracha mustard for an extra kick. Huge appetite? Give their Baby Back Ribs a go — we're talking fall-off-the-bone ribs baked in a smoky housemade barbeque sauce seasoned with an aromatic blend of spices.
Of course, don't leave without getting your sweet fix. We encourage all to try Grandma's Cookies and Cream, essentially dark chocolate shortbread stuffed with white chocolate, accompanied with none other than Overeasy's signature Oreo milkshake. Our diet plans are definitely on hold, for now.
