I-S reviews Peranakan eatery Immigrants along Joo Chiat Road for some fiery small plates and plenty of whiskey.
“The menu includes enough offal and chili to put hairs on any chest. But even with all the testosterone-pumped offerings, dinner here is not a slapdash affair. Each recipe is thoughtfully paired with its own special blend of chili sauce. The one which accompanies the aromatic seh bak ($18), braised pig innards, is exemplary with a strong hit of calamansi lime. Other standouts include the sambal goreng ($12), chicken livers, gizzards and prawn in a sweet yet tongue-numbing red sauce, as well as the squid bombs ($14), silky rings of just-cooked calamari bursting with chili paste.”
