Brought to you by the folks behind Nicole’s Flower Café and Le Jardin in Fort Canning, Under Der Linden is a new pet-friendly restaurant in One-north.

Appointments and reservations

When we visited on a Friday afternoon, we found the restaurant to be full.

They accept reservations through Instagram Direct message as well as visits without appointment.

It is best to have a reservation before you arrive as we have been told that the wait time for walk-in people can take an average of 45 minutes to an hour, depending on space availability.

However, there’s a good chance that the reason you’re here (or hanging out here) is to take photos anyway, so you can spend the time taking photos outside while you wait for your table.

Here are some of the spaces that will soon populate Instagram:

Photo spots

You can’t miss the main entrance, which seems to be a popular spot for photo ops.

However, we observed a constant stream of patrons (and buses) approaching the main entrance during our lunchtime visit on a Friday, which can be a challenge for those looking for an uninterrupted photoshoot. .

Next is the entrance to the Nicole’s Flower store, located right next to the main entrance to Under Der Linden.

The hallways outside are adorned with plants and tiles and monochrome chairs.

The outdoor seating area was not yet open to diners when we visited on December 17th, but we were told it should open from December 21st.

Catering area

Under Der Linden identifies itself as a restaurant with “a common catering concept”.

Once your table is ready, step inside and you’ll be greeted with the following views:

Food and drinks

The menu is accessible via the QR code on the table or by clicking here.

For drinks we tried the Tandaradei (S $ 9), which is a butterfly pea flower tea with grapefruit and homemade tea syrup.

This pretty drink leans on the acidic side with a strong grapefruit flavor.

Another drink recommendation is the Walther vogelweide (S $ 12), which is an English tea infused with lychee and yuzu that is served in a clear teapot and matching tea cups.

These drinks are non-alcoholic, but you can add a glass of vodka, rum, or gin for an additional S $ 4.

Then, our choice of Small Plate, the Hamachi Crudo (S $ 24) with cucumber, celery, raisins and dill was served.

Available from the lunch and dinner menu, we found the raw fish slices to be fresh and sweet, complemented by the light and refreshing sauce in which they are immersed.

Although it is called a “Small Plate”, we felt that the dish could be shared as an aperitif between two small eaters.

The “Grande Assiette” we tried was the Iberian pork secreto (S $ 34) with kale, pineapple and apple cider juice.

The small pineapple cubes not only add a touch of color to the dish, but also help remove the fat from the meat and the salty taste from the sauce.

All in all a safe option for a main course that is hard to go wrong. However, if you prefer fish, the Barramundi (S $ 30) was also recommended to us.

Again, we felt the portion was large enough to be split between two small eaters. Or maybe we were just too full of the aperitif earlier.

If you don’t mind a bit of carbs, they also have pasta on the menu.

Last but not least, we had to make room for dessert.

They all looked very pretty, so it was a bit difficult to decide which one to choose.

We finally chose the Lavender Earl Gray ($ 12 S).

Adorned with flowers, it makes a pretty dessert. However, we found it a bit too sweet for us, possibly due to the cream overpowering the Earl Gray.

If you have a sweet tooth and prefer an Instagram-worthy dessert, this is a good option, especially if you pair it with hot tea or coffee to balance the sweetness.

Desserts range from S $ 11 to S $ 14 and are displayed at the counter:

They also have pastries such as Butterfly Danish (S $ 6), Focaccia (S $ 6), and Pumpkin Brioche (S $ 8).

As you walk to the washroom through the back door, you might notice the outside space next to the washroom.

We were told that the lights outside, including the neon sign, are usually on around 6 p.m.

There will also be another restaurant occupying the neighboring space which is slated to open in 2022.

Named Cesoir, the fine dining concept under Nicole’s Flower will seat 30-50 people, including a private dining room, with a menu different from Under Der Linden.
