Simpson Wong’s (Café Asean) ode to Singaporean hawker food offers another spicy, seafood-laden reason to head to the West Village. Ornate wooden doors set the tone for the restaurant, which pays respect to Singapore’s multicultural food culture — a mash-up of Indian, Chinese, Malay, and British Colonial influences — with family-style dishes enhanced by homemade chile-garlic and sambal belacan (shrimp paste). Standout appetizers include popiah, spring rolls filled with shrimp, jicama, snow peas, and chile sauce, and the shrimp-paste-seasoned chicken wings known as hah zheung gai, first garlicky and crunchy and then tangy and tender. There’s plenty for noodle lovers too, including hokkien mee, stir-fried egg noodles served in a shallow shrimp broth and loaded with shrimp, squid, eggs, and scallions. For those with bigger appetites, tender and buttery grilled skate in a banana leaf served with calamansi sambal, and rendang lamb shank, slow-cooked in a spiced coconut milk and served with herbed potato croquette, satisfy.
