Hidden Door Concepts, the progressive restaurant group behind some of the most well known lifestyle and F&B concepts in Singapore, like Sear and Empire, has launched a new concept in the heart of Mohamed Sultan Road, serving breakfast, dinner and bonding over a few casual beers.
As an unpretentious and casual neighbourhood bar, Nickeldime River Valley offers high quality craft beers and international bar food in a laid back environment. Chief Executive Chef Tim Ashwood helms the kitchen and prepares all the progressive comfort food completely fresh in-house from scratch. No shortcuts, no cutting corners.
We dropped by one evening to check out the place.
We had a few dishes to share, paired with craft beers such as:
1) Stone and Wood Green Coast Lager.
2) Tuatara Coastin’ Session IPA.
3) Pirate Life Mosaic IPA.
4) Heart of Darkness Directors Cacao Porter
SCOTCH EGGS STOUT BROWN SAUCE
Runny eggs wrapped in smoked streaky bacon and house bread crumbs, served with traditional English brown sauce caramelized with dark chocalate stout. This dish is well executed with the right balance of flavours and sweetness.
PICKLED BEETROOT & WITLOF SALAD
The beetroot is slow roasted, peeled and pickled in maple syrup and sherry vinegar. It is added to witlof and tossed with candied hazelnuts, orange segments and dressing made from beetroot pickle jus, topped with feta mousse. A refreshing and healthy dish indeed.
A modern take on a traditional cafe dish. House made leavened brioche is layered with Dijon mustard, hand-carved leg ham and a cream layer of mozzarella, cheddar, gruyere and IPA beer. It is masked with bechamel and baked in the oven, and served with a fried egg. This simply melts in the mouth and explodes in the mouth with a fusion of delightful flavours.
CONFIT DUCK WAFFLE
The duck legs are cured for 12 hours before slow-cooked in duck fat, and served atop leavened thyme and cheddar cheese waffle, stout glazed bacon and a fried egg. The marbling of the duck fat oozes out and pairs really well with the Cacao Porter with hints of red berries, cacao nibs and dark roasted coffee.
