Nestled on 548 Macpherson Street, Pestle & Mortar Society opened its doors on 26 April 2021. Offering Malay-Western fusion dishes with a homely touch, their timely opening also makes it a perfect place for Muslim diners to break fast after a long day. This cosy space serves a fusion of familiar and delectable array of Malay-Muslim and Western dishes.

Their steak selection constitutes a thick slab of meat with a serving of fries and mixed salad greens. Featuring cuts from premium Angus beef, you can enjoy Angus Tenderloin, Sirloin or Ribeye with a juicy and flavourful bite. Two types of sauces are available—the blue cheese sauce and black pepper sauce, which adds another dimension to its taste. If you have a liking for lamb, their lamb rack is a good choice, beautifully plated with three generous slices, doused in sauce and topped off with asparagus. 

Rendang and pasta lovers would be hooked on to the Beef Rendang Pasta. Thick cubes of beef rest on an ample hill of pasta, a good ratio that may just tempt you back for more. Spice lovers can opt for the Smoked Duck Lemak Cili Padi Linguine, with a pretty generous serving of smoked duck slices.

They have your standard Buffalo Wings and Nachos served with guacamole, cheese, salsa, and olives that doesn’t pale in comparison to the rest. The Traditional Ambeng has a huge helping of rice and ingredients which warms the soul and stomach for only S$10.90

Savour the end of your meal with sweets of lava cakes and ice cream, with flavours like Red Velvet, Gula Melaka and more. Overall, Pestle & Mortar Society offers homely, soul-warming dishes with a muddle of flavours from the East and West—just like how ingredients blend seamlessly when using a pestle and mortar.
