Roosevelt's Diner & Bar is conveniently located right at Outram MRT. There's also an open-air car park that is coupon-based just opposite the cafe, so there's ample parking options should you choose to drive down. This place seems to be catered more towards the expats, for a chill out bar experience but they also have a weekend brunch menu that can suit the needs of any family.

1. Pan Seared Hokkaido Scallops ($24)
For appetizers, we were recommended to try their scallops, at $8 a pop, I did expect it to be at least decent. The pan seared scallops were served on yuzu mustard ricotta with seaweed brown butter and toasted hazelnuts. The menu mentioned it was topped with tobiko, but we saw no trace of it. The scallops tasted alright, but nothing to wow about, except the price.

2. Squid Ink Fish and Chips ($26)
An interesting version of the fish and chips that I've not tried before. The exterior of the fish was crisp and had a nice bite, with the addition of the squid ink, it was able to absorb some moisture, leaving the desirable crusty appearance and texture. It was certainly a great surprise for me as I really enjoyed the fish. The chips were slightly limp and soggy, but still acceptable.

3. Chicken Confit With Truffle Potato Foam ($26)
The chicken skin was thin and crispy. Missing was the layer of fat in between the skin and the melt that had melted away during the cooking process. The chicken melt was tender, juicy and flavourful. Paried with the truffle potato foam, this main dish was the winner for the night. The truffle potato foam had a distinct truffle aroma that wasn't too overpowering, along with the smooth truffle lingering taste that made this dish so addictive. I found myself, digging in, spoon after spoonful of truffle mash!

4. BBQ Baby Back Ribs ($26)
This was served with a bourbon BBQ sauce and was their signature dish. The portion and price was reasonable and I watched a family of 4 next to us, enjoy this as a family sharing dish.

5. Secret Compressed Watermelon waffle

Instead of picking a dessert off the menu, owner, Ying recommended us to try one of her newest invention. I was honoured to be her guinea pig.

A unique waffle with Strawberry, compressed Watermelon with mint and choya, Balsamic Vinegar Honey and Rose bud ricotta.

The compressed watermelon with mint and choya was so juicy and sweet, bursting with flavours. The balsamic honey and rose bud ricotta were all interesting ingredients which sounded like an overdose of ingredient combination. But nope, it all worked out, together. The waffle itself was crispy with a butter fragrance.

Overall, decent food with a nice, cosy and chill-out ambience. Great for the boys night out, or family gatherings during the day.

Brioche French Toast Waffles ($14++): This is actually a brioche bun soaked in Amaretto-laced moisture, and then pressed into the waffle machine. So you get this bun-c**-waffle creation! The texture quite dense to me - well, rightly so I guess since it's not your normal waffle batter. For people who don't like bread, perhaps you should stay away from this, because you'll complain that it's too gelat. But I enjoyed the combination of everything - I tasted a bit of cinnamon which was just right to go well with the mixed berries sauce. And with that Vanilla ice cream, how can it go wrong?

Spiced Potato Bacon Hash ($16++): This dish consists of spiced potato, bacon, poached egg and served with house-made tomato relish. Even though I don't like potato and hence the dish wasn't my top favourite, I have to say that the potato was delicious and the spices sure did give it lots of flavour. A tip: break the poached egg and mix everything up together.

Crab Cake Benedict ($21++): A more unique twist to the classic (and perhaps overdone) Eggs Benedict, this one replaces the usual ham/smoked salmon/mushrooms with crab cake! It's served on english muffins and with a thin layer of garlic mayo, plus a side salad. The eggs were runny and nicely poached. But I can't quite get the taste of the crab cake... Except its saltiness.

BBQ Baby Back Ribs ($22++): Even though I'm not a meat person, I was delighted that the meat fell off the bone with one slice of the knife/fork! It was tender, not too salty and oh-so-good with the BBQ sauce! And I like the accompaniment of the corn salsa too!

Breakfast Waffle Candied BLT ($14++): Essentially all the breakfast items sandwiched between two crisp layers of waffles. And it was so delicious! It sounds like a very plain idea but the tastes, aesthetics... all worked for me. On the whole it was a bit salty but I guess cos there's bacon. But I still love this dish - and oh yes, the waffles! It didn't turn soggy despite the many fillings inside. And you'll think that you'll feel gelat since it's waffles right? But no, it filled me up just fine!

Apple Berry Crumble ($10++): All my favourites in this dessert. Muesli and berries crumble mixed with some apple slices and then topped with vanilla ice cream, this was polished clean!

All in all the newly introduced food in the weekend brunch menu are worth a try. Some dishes are rather unique, like the Brioche French Toast Waffle and Spiced Potato Bacon Hash.
Other Info. : Good place for brunch or group gatherings

Something on the regular menu and it's only available from lunch to closing, BBQ Baby Back Ribs - $22 (half), $28 (full). The meat was tender and flavourful. If you are a meat lover, this could be for you.

I got to say Roosevelt is pretty generous with the servings!

As my first experience here was a positive one, I recommended my friends to try out this cafe. The new dishes we had (that I've not yet reviewed) were the steak with wine sauce ($29) and the truffle fish pie ($18). The steak was done medium. It was a rather thin slice but was compensated by its larger than typical size. I'd prefer if it was thicker though.

The pastry of the truffle fish pie was flaky and moist. There were pieces of fish beneath the pastry and the fish that was drenched in the sauce somehow reminded me of the taste of mushroom soup. As the pastry was soaked in the sauce, it was somehow soggy but still tasted good. The truffle had a slight smokey taste but the taste of the truffle was rather light. 

The ambience at night was lovely.

I really love the ambience there, especially the rustic brick walls near the counter area. During the day, the natural sunlight shines through the glass panels and gives the whole place a vibrant look. By night, it has a bar-like setting, complete with dim settings to set the mood. Look at the teardrop (bulbs) ceiling lights. So pretty!

Flat White $4.80

Coffee was on the acidic side and I find that it wasn't sharp enough for me. It was an average cup of coffee, enough for a perk-me-up but honestly speaking, I'd recommend you to skip their coffee and try out their milkshakes instead.

Roosevelt's Salted Caramel Milkshake $8

Their milkshakes are on the pricier side but they are good to share as the serving size is large and filling.

There was a good balance of salt and caramel flavours and the texture was wonderfully smooth and well blended. Every sip kept me wanting more. Roosevelt's milkshake certainly lives up to its name.

BBQ Baby Back Ribs $28 (Full)

Their baby back ribs are marinated twice overnight as part of their preparation. I had to carefully serve it onto my plate because the meat fell off the bone so easily. The sauce was sweet and the meat was surprisingly tender. The corn sides had a refreshing twist as mini cubes of cucumber were added into the mixture. If you love pork ribs, you've got to try this dish!

Southern Fried Chicken $18

Their fried chicken is marinated with fresh milk overnight. This was one of my favourite dishes that I had sampled. They were well seasoned, the skin was crispy, and the meat was tender and fell off the bone easily. My only gripe was that it was slightly salty for me. There were 2 sides for this - salad and a mashed combination of pumpkin, potato, and sweet potato which sounded dry but was surprisingly soft, moist, and tasty.

Eggs Roosevelt $17

We were recommended this because this dish is rather popular among diners. There was a really strong flavour to the hollandaise sauce and personally, I wouldn't be able to finish it all by myself as I am not used to the robust flavour. This will be good to share so you can enjoy and appreciate the flavours of the dish better.

The chorizo, which is a type of pork sausage, was sliced and scattered in the dish. The heavy taste of the chorizo did not clash with the overall flavours of the dish though. The smashed potato which made up a large bulk of the dish was moist and soft thanks to the sauce.

Mixed Berries and Apple Crumble $8

We were told that the oats were fried and then baked together with the fresh apple slices. This is definitely not your typical apple crumple dessert. Although it was fried, it tasted healthy to me due to the taste of the granola oats. The soft and juicy apple slices, together with the generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream, were a great combination with the warmly baked crumble underneath.

The Place:
Situated as part of Dorsett hotel, this is the place is known for their waffles and cheap drinks.
When we first arrived at the restaurant at close to 5pm, there weren't much people around, except a few who ordered just drinks.
Service:
This is one of the rare places which actually served water without asking. Thumbs up for this. The waiters were extremely helpful and seem to know their stuff well.

The Food:
We scanned the menu and ordered the following-

Candied Bacon Beef Burger ($20)
Their burgers are served in their in-house brioche burger bun that's baked fresh daily, with 180grams of juicy patty for the beef burgers, and double cheese fries.
The many layers of ingredients- pickles and the usual cheese, tomato and lettuce complement the patty very well. That being said, the patty was not well-marinated and could not hold itself well. The candied bacon was actually the star of the dish.
What is a candied bacon? As you may be thinking already, yes, it is actually bacon drenched in sugar syrup before deep frying it to get that sweet coating and crunch when you bite. Bacon is already sinful enough, with sugar? Double the sin! But trust me, it's all worth it.
We are definitely going to try this candied bacon the next time we make our home-made burgers!

Tasting somewhat like Popeye's Fried Chicken, including the 3 side dishes- salad, potatoes and corn.
Tasted tender, boneless, totally perfect for a first date dish. The skin is very cripsy and well marinated as well.

Churros Waffles ($12)
With cinnamon sugar, butter, and mocha sauce on the side.
As the mocha sauce was not sweet as we would have preferred for a desert, we actually drenched it in maple syrup, which was provided on the side. The waffles were a tad oily, but it was soft and airy. The whole combination was extremely tasty. It definitely kept up to its reputation online.
The HUGE vanilla ice cream in the middle totally made my day. I always had to 'ration' my ice cream whenever I have waffles with ice cream. Today, there was no need to, and in fact, the ice cream was the last to be polished off!

Came here with parents and small kids in tow so I reserved a table beforehand to avoid disappointment.
For starters, we ordered the Jalapeno Mac & Cheese to share. You can definitely taste the spice of the mac & cheese and it's pretty good. Hubby preferred if they had used Cheddar instead.
For the mains, we ordered:
Southern Fried Chicken - I must say that the seasoning can be pretty spicy for the kids (mine complained a bit) but for us hardy adults, no problem. The skin is fried till crispy and the meat is still quite juicy. It's served with their homemade mash, which is very good, and a side of corn and salad. The dressing of the corn and salad doesn't rock my boat because I don't fancy sour stuff much and I assume others may like that.
BBQ Chicken - Generous half spring chicken that is marinated with their BBQ sauce. No bad tasting and meat is juicy too. Served with shoe-string fries and corn and salad.
Baby Back Ribs - the same BBQ sauce is used to season the ribs. It's nice and meat falls off the bone when eaten. It's good, better than some more established makan places.
Teddy's 100% US Beef Burger - a tall burger with their homemade pattie and bacon strips as the main stars. It's pretty good.
Penne Bolognese - daughter wanted pasta and we tried their bolognese which was very good. Again, you can tell they made their own sauce and that's quite a bit of pride there.
Milkshake Salted Caramel - It's not super sweet so that's great! I can't really taste the salted caramel so that's a small shame.
I like how they attempt to make their food fresh by really making the marinade and sauce from scratch. We'll would be back again to check out the rest of their menu and drink a little this time.

Roosevelt's Diner & Bar is an all-day diner and bar that serves up a wide range of American-style dishes and drinks at affordable prices in an ambient setting. When we stepped into Roosevelt's we felt that we entered a diner in New York; with it's full length windows, industrial-chic interior and cozy ambience.
We were there at evening time and the restaurant was lighted up with warm, orange ceiling bulbs and candles were placed on every table. Patrons could truly feel relaxed and at ease in this warm environment. We also really liked that the furniture were nicely spaced out as it allows diners to have sufficient personal space to engage in conversations comfortably.
We got to find out that Roosevelt's pride themselves for their extensive Wine Menu. Apart from that, they also serve up a few types of Beer and cocktails. As both of us enjoy White Wine better than Red, we sampled all 3 of their Whites. The lightest of the three is the Blanc-Combard ($6 for 75ml) from France. It is slightly acetic with some fruity aroma. The next in line is the Sauvignon Blanc ($7 for 75ml) from New Zealand. It has a fruity taste and I feel is the least spicy wine of the three. The strongest is the Chardonnay, slightly woody with fruity flavours and a buttery note.
We ordered the Garlic Prawns ($12) as one of our Side Dish. Roosevelt's sides range from $7-$12 each. We would love to try their other sides such as Truffle Fries and Fried Oysters the next time we are here. Z's favourite is the Garlic Prawns. She likes is so much that she had 2 servings. The prawns are evenly cooked with an aromatic garlic flavour. The prawns are crunchy whichI would prefer to the soggy ones.
Another side that we tried is their Jalapeño Bacon Mac and Cheese ($11). The Jalapeño flavour was really strong and it added a spicy note to the dish. What was different from Roosevelt's Mac and Cheese is that the added a layer of Bread Crumbs on it, which made the whole Mac and Cheese drier in nature. Personally, I would like the Mac and Cheese to be less dry.
For our dessert, we ordered the Flourless Chocolate cake served with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream as well as Mixed Berries and Apple Crumble also topped with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream. I like that they pair their dessert with Ice Cream as it gives the desserts a balance.
Overall, we had a good dinner, completed with great drinks and desserts!

Went to Roosevelt’s with cousin’s family for dinner. Roosevelt’s is one of the pretty new cafe in Singapore. Its located near Outram park station at Dorsett Residences. The deco of the cafe has already caught our eyes even before we enter the cafe. I guess nowadays pretty cafe is one of the attraction points. Its interior has a industrial feel with a touch of garage and pretty hanging lightings. Walls are decorated with different art pieces too.

Just look at one of their dining tables! Glass top with a motor alike mechanism supporting the glass table. Pair it with the metallic chairs, and a scooter just right beside it! Dont you feel like we are back to the olden industrial era for that short moment.

Back to foodwise, some are good some are average. Anyway just to note they have a all day menu and a after 6pm menu. The after 6pm menu consists of more mains such as protein based food. & so we ordered quite a number of dish to try since there’s quite a number of us. We ordered Mango Passionfruit Smoothie ($6.50). Its a lil sourish, refreshing, you would be able to taste more of passion fruit over mango. Smooth but as most places, its not 100% blended with real ingredients but rather with mixture of water, and so after sometime you can see the separation of the 2 mixtures so just got to stir it well before drinking! Their truffles fries ($10) is quite nice! I love that truffle taste they have. The fries are crispy and every bite you could taste the truffle.

I decided to try their beer battered fish & chips ($19). I still cant appreciate the beer battered. I guess they just add that tiny winny bit of beer into the flour mixture so couldnt really taste anything. The fish and chip is so so, not really a big fan of it. Next up, US black angus ribeye steak ($29). My uncle had it well done, but even though its well though, its not tough at all! Well marinated. It is accompanied with pumpkin mashed potatoes. Barbecued chicken ($18). Half a chicken, meat is tender, skin is crisp. Half BBQ baby back ribs. Meat is soft and tender with a well mixture of meat and some will call it collagen/ some call it fats or whichever. So its like you have the meaty mouth feel together with the soft part from collagen/fats.

Last main for the dinner. Lemongrass prawn burger. Patty is make of of smashed up prawn and taste of lemon grass. Quite a new taste i come across for a burger so far. Desserts time! Apple forest berries crumble ($8). Before it was served i had imagined it as something like apple crumble style, so was quite surprise to see it that way. Its more like your muesli bar or grains mix with berries and slices of apple and bake it in the oven. i’ll still prefer the traditional apple crumble style.

We ordered another dessert too. Chocolate banana waffle ($12). This is good! caramelized banana soft and sweet, it literally melts into your mouth! Waffle is a lil crispy and spongy. Both desserts suppose to come with vanilla ice cream, but i think they ran out of it, so they substitute it with chocolate ice cream. It’s thoughtful of them to separate it, as some might not like the chocolate ice cream with their dessert, as their combination may not match. Very friendly staff too. Quite a nice place to pamper yourself after a day of work in office.

- nothing to wow about. I would like to say their service is pretty bad. Had to repeat our orders a few times, no side plates, had to ask for utensils after our waffle is served, when we were served the waffle they asked if we want the ice cream by the side but the ice cream did not come?! 😰😰 that's very unattentive.

Located in Dorsett Residences just next to Outram Park MRT Station Exit H, the less than 1 month old Roosevelt's Diner & Bar is already developing a loyal following, especially amongst the residents of nearby Duxton and Outram. Offering gourmet fare at wallet-friendly prices admist a quirky, modern decor, Roosevelt's Diner & Bar looks sets to do well.
Ambience at Roosevelt's Diner & Bar is best described as modern with elements of industrial chic. Star highlights include th 'Engine Table', a glass panel table supported by a race car engine, a vintage orange vespa, and expressive photo canvasas adorning the walls. Furniture is functional, but not all are comfortable. Lighting is a mix of natural sunlight and in-house lights on the high ceiling, with several lightbulbs doubling as decor. Roosevelt's Diner & Bar also offers magazines for browsing.

Service at Roosevelt's Diner & Bar makes an effort to impress. Being new, I'm surprised that service here is efficient, and staff are friendly and quite knowledgable on the menu. Food is prepared relatively quickly as well.
Roosevelt's Diner & Bar serves artisinal all day breakfast / brunch, along with gourmet coffee. At night, they bring out the extensive wine / beer menu, and serve restaurant quality fare. I love the food here so far, haven't had any bad experiences yet! It also helps that prices are affordable, comparable to other cafes.

The signature Eggs Roosevelt (SGD $17) features a bed of turmeric spiced smashed potatoes and spicy chorizo sausage, topped with 2 softly poached eggs. The yolk when cut just runs down and coats the potatoes and sausages, making it visually messy but so good to eat. The turmeric spice on the potatoes is just right without being too overpowering.
