THE MISSING PAN is a little shophouse restaurant at 619D Bukit Timah Road with a bakery on the first floor and a brasserie upstairs. It is run by the same folks behind artisan bakery and sandwich shop, Uppercrust by The Organic Baker, which used to occupy the same premise.
The restaurant serves modern cuisine with a flair for artisanal baked goods, given the background of the owners.
The menu is kept simple to two pages. Simplicity does not mean a lack of variety. They have everything from hot and cold mains to desserts and even a kids’ menu:
I was invited for a brunch tasting and these are the items I sampled:
I like this place!
Ingredients are natural and wholesome, with liberal use of veggies and fruits. Parents with young children will be very happy with the menu at The Missing Pan. I know my wife will approve.
The French Toast Salpicon is a must-try. The mix of sweet and savory ingredients seem odd, but they work well together to titillate tastebuds. The chef said he got his inspiration for this dish from the Taiwanese “Coffin Bread (棺材板 )” street snack. This is like the souped-up, gourmet big brother of the Coffin Bread!
Order anything baked or with pastry and you will likely find it satisfying.
The restaurant tend to get quite packed during the weekend. Go early or make early reservations to avoid disappointment. Here are the details for The Missing Pan if you are interested to visit:
