You might remember that we wrote about the closure of Immigrants Gastrobar. After keeping us in suspense for months, the restaurant’s veteran chef Damian D’Silva has finally unveiled his newest venture at food truck gastropark, Timbre +.
D’s Joint is a simple set up serving honest, Singaporean favorites and Western plates, albeit in a faux-gritty setting. Sure, there’s the usual fish and chips, pastas and burgers, but what’s sending food critics here in a tizzy is his nasi lemak, with a generous portion of fried ikan kuning, omelette, fragrant coconut rice, sambal and ikan bilis. Besides this hot favorite, the menu also offers other interesting highlights like the kai fun (or street rice), rice served with chicken broth, char siew, lup cheong and shredded chicken that was a staple for coolies back in the day, and Peranakan specialty sek bak; pig offal in thick, aromatic gravy.
