Cozy cafe tucked within the premise of Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations along Waterloo Street serving up a homely range of value-for-money, well-executed western fare along with craft beers and ciders. Paper Crane’s signatures include the $15 dollar series of robust main courses such as the crumbly, crispy and juicy Southern-style Buttermilk Deep-fried Chicken with Slaw & Fries, and the crispy Beer Battered Fresh Seabass & Chips that features fresh succulent seabass from Ah Hua Kelong. Try pairing them with Paper Crane’s homemade UBO chilli sauce to kick it up a notch.
For non-meat dishes, try the wallet-friendly but hearty Pesto Linguine with Sauteed Mushrooms ($10) or the Asian-inspired Angel Hair Pasta with Ginger Scallion Oil and Shrimp Roe ($10). For sharing, check out Popcorn Chicken with Spicy Coriander Mayo ($10) as well as the unlikely combination of east and west in Kimchi Fries with Grilled Steak and Cilantro Mayo ($15) that turns out to be a good, refreshing take on steak frites, best paired with Dead Pony Club Pale Ale craft beer ($10 or $40 for a bucket of five).
Everything you see at Paper Crane is nett price and they also do a variety of daily promotions that includes one-for-one Southern Fried Chicken on Monday, $10 Fish & Chips on Wednesday, one-one-one pasta on Tuesday and Thursday, and half price of the second order of Fresh Mussels.
