Regular visitors to Raffles City’s Marketplace would probably be familiar with the sight of Out Of The Pan. Going down the escalator to the basement level, you get a bird’s eye view of the entire restaurant. Located right next to the popular sit-here-and-rest fountain, a meal at Out Of The Pan (or OOTP as I call it) is surprisingly therapeutic, especially enjoyable for a meal at the end of a day. The sound of water running and splashing made a great accompaniment to our order of crepes.
A mix of Asian and Western cuisine, the menu at OOTP is creative. We ordered the Pork Bulgogi Crepe and the BLT Crepe. The ham and cheese in the BLT makes a tasty combination, but it was the Pork Bulgogi that really made our night. Well-balanced between sweetness and mild spiciness, it carried much of the flavor of its Korean namesake. Not only was it a surprise from the first bite, the taste was consistently delicious and the crepe good to the last mouthful.
Our crepes were accompanied by the Asian Spices Chicken Breast Salad. The chicken was well seasoned with Thai curry paste, and the sweet Thai chilli sauce dressing light and refreshing. We topped it all off with the Mango Cooler, which was a tad too sweet, but felt smooth and soothing going down.
If you order the set meal, it costs around S$20 for a crepe, salad and drink. If you are a UOB card member however, you can take advantage of the ongoing one-for-one promotion running for lunch and dinner from Mondays to Thursdays. Note however, that it is only available for dine-in, so bring a friend along for a relaxing lunch or dinner.
If you’re looking to eat on the run, OOTP also has a counter for take-away mini crepes, with crepe choices like BLT and Mama Margherita that are absolutely tempting.
