Xiao Ya Tou <小丫头> is <Little Rebel or Imp>
Standing out amongst the bustling nightlife of Duxton Hill, Xiao Ya Tou (a.k.a. Yours Truly) is a restaurant bar serving up modern Asian cuisine with a naughty touch. The fun begins right at my doorsteps – walk through an array of lanterns and be greeted by the sights and sounds of Asian nostalgia.
My restaurant bar takes strong influence from the rich history of Duxton's past, an old street popularly known as ‘Jinrickshaw Place’ in the mid 1850s. Then, Duxton was flourished with coolies looking for a means of enjoyment at gambling dens, brothels and opium dens.
To some, Duxton was a slum; but to me - it was synonymous with fun and guiltless pleasure which is reflected in the experience when you visit and dine with me.
So don't be shy. Hold my hand and come eat, drink and be merry <吃喝玩乐> with me?
Every plate is laced with modern Asian flavours, served with a touch of naughtiness.
I don't play by the rules here, just like my menu offerings where local flavours are transformed into innovative dishes.
Each meal period features a different menu - weekday lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Expect your humble Otak-Otak Rolls wrapped in phyllo pastry and Eggs Benedict served with an Asian touch! Party in your mouth, anyone?
I also have a selection of curated cocktails, such as Opium & Milo Dinosaur, a decadent take on the local mamak staple. After all, no meal is complete without the warm glow that comes from a drink or two!
