Menage Cafe: Truffle Crayfish Pasta & Beef Cheese Fries At This Dog-Friendly Cafe In Sin Ming Plaza

Last Updated: November 15, 2018

If there’s one thing I love other than delicious food, that’s dogs — fuffy puppers with tiny paws; how could you possibly resist them?

That’s why I was so excited to finally visit Menage Cafe at Sin Ming Plaza.

Not only can you bring your dog here for a meal with a specially created menu just for your pup, it also dishes out yummy Western cafe fare for us humans, such as Signature Fish & Chips (S$17.90)Duck Confit (S18.90) and Spicy Crabmeat Linguine (S$17.90).

When we walked into the Menage Cafe, we were immediately struck by how clean and spacious it was. Full-length glass panels lined the side and its large ceiling dome over half the cafe.

There were also dog-friendly amenities, such as water bowls and pee mops at the ready. It certainly seems like the perfect place to chill with your furkid.

To start off our meal, we got the Triple Threat Wings (S$9). It comprised eight gloriously fried chicken wings, a pile of crispy nachos, house salad, and three dips: cheese, sweet chilli, and lemon mayonnaise.

Though the wings were pretty average and could’ve used a little more seasoning, I really enjoyed the lemon mayonnaise dip. It was tangy and light, and balanced out the oiliness from the chicken wings.

The Beef Cheese Fries (S$13) is a fan-favourite, and it’s easy to see why. A basket of freshly made french fries came drizzled with a generous amount of nacho cheese and chunks of soft, melt-in-your-mouth beef.

We loved the fact that they didn’t scrimp on the nacho cheese sauce nor beef, and each bite was sinfully indulgent and really yummy. This is a definite must-order if you come with a large group of friends, as the large portions and creamy cheese might be too much for a single person to finish.

Seated on a bed of silky mashed potatoes, roasted cauliflower, sauteed asparagus and pommes puree, the Pan Seared Salmon (S$18.90) was well-seasoned and delicious.

The salmon’s pink flesh was soft and fell apart easily, while its skin was crispy and salty. It went hand-in-hand with the sweetness of the mashed potatoes and the zesty kick from the pommes puree.

The intoxicating smell of truffle hit our noses even before we dug into the Truffle Crayfish Pasta (S$21.90).

Creamy and smooth, the mushroom linguine came in a large portion (enough for two people, we reckon) and the slurp-worthy sauce was infused with truffle to make sure that every mouthful of pasta was packed with earthy and rich flavours.

The crayfish was baked with cheese, resulting in a gloriously golden exterior, though the cheese itself was hard to remove and had stuck to the shell, which was quite a pity.

The crayfish flesh itself was firm, fresh and bouncy, and went really well with the truffle cream sauce.

For dessert, we went with the Ice Cream Waffle (S$9.90). Freshly made and topped with a scoop of ice cream of our choice (we went with mint), the waffle looked gorgeous with its little heart-shaped sprinkles and powdered sugar frosting, and warm and crunchy when we dug in.

Pairing warm waffles with ice cream is always a classic combination, and it was the perfect way to end a meal, especially with that generous amount of chocolate syrup drizzled on top.

Before you leave, don’t forget to snap a picture of your pooch (or yourself) on the cafe’s iconic hanging nest chair.


I will be back again with my furkid, and hopefully, the Truffle Crayfish Pasta would fare better then. Otherwise, dining at Menage Cafe is an absolute delight for dog owners and dog lovers alike.

For dog owners, you can indulge in scrumptious and affordable Western fare while knowing that your pooch is having fun in a safe and clean environment. And for dog lovers, being able to pet and interact with furry dogs while enjoying a delicious meal with close friends is always a perk.
