Lonely Planet review for Hemlock
Taking full advantage of its cosy shophouse location, this perennial favourite has enough style to feel like a special night out but doesn’t skimp on flavour or preparation. The eclectic menu reads like an ancient literary work, reviving old dishes from aristocratic kitchens across the country. Try the flavourful mêe·ang kam (wild tea leaves wrapped around ginger, shallots, peanuts, lime and shredded coconut) or yam kà·moy (thieves’ salad).
