Food Review: Lime House @ Keong Siak Belt, Singapore

When Lime House first opened its doors in 2013, they introduced the Caribbean concept of “liming”, which means the art of sharing food, drinks, conversation, and laughter. The restaurant and bar is set in a heritage four-storey shop house in Chinatown’s Keong Siak belt.

The owner of Lime House, Chris Morris wanted his customers to view Lime House as an extension of their own homes. This is clearly reflected in the interior and décor of the space, as well as the warm and welcoming staff that instantly made us feel at home! The space gives out laid-back, vacation vibes which complements the home-y taste of the dishes served.

After celebrating 5 fantastic years of Limin’, Lime House launched their new Caribbean Tapas and Cocktail menu which features some of their old favourites as well some new delectable selections. One thing is for sure, by the end of the night, we were so stuffed that we could roll out of the door!

Lime House prides themselves in their house-made sauces and curries that are all made from scratch. As a result, one of the stars of their menu is the Jerk Chicken Skewers which features their homemade sauce and delectable pineapple salsa. Their chicken was tender and had a good balance of flavours.

Another interesting menu item was the Seafood Tostones. The tostones are double fried plantain, whilst the seafood cocktail dip is a concoction of prawn and squid in a Rum-infused, spiced dip. This dish had a bit of a throaty spice and was and interesting melding of flavours.

The Caribbean Rice Bowls consists of brown rice topped with Oxtail, Tribajam Curry Goat, Jerk Chicken, or if you are vegan, Ital Stew. Our favourite was the Tribajam Curry Goat Rice Bowl! The mutton was very tender and had a familiar, home-y taste to it. I would definitely order this the next time I visit!

They also launched a few new cocktails such as Rebel Stormy – A concoction of homemade Falernum, ginger beer and passionfruit, Jamaican Sunset – Pimms N1-based drink with fruit, spices and ginger beer, and Bison Cooler – Vodka flavoured by Bison Grass, with the refreshing flavours of chamomile essence and apple juice. The Bison Cooler was definitely my personal favourite! It’s very refreshing and, in my opinion, great to cleanse the palette!
