The Masses has moved into a swankier space at Capitol Singapore

 

At its new home in Capitol Singapore, The Masses brings a fresh breath of Franco-Asian cuisine, continuing its mission to deliver exceptional dishes at great value. Under chef Dylan Ong’s (pictured, right) stewardship, it continues redefining dining with a blend of cultures, traditions and innovation.

Ong’s journey from a family-run hawker stall to The Masses’ new chic surroundings is a tale of transformation inspired by a passion for food and community. His philosophy, rooted in accessibility and affordability, ensures every guest can enjoy a culinary experience that feels both personal and expansive.

Originally housed along Beach Road, The Masses began with offering contemporary French cuisine, which later morphed into Franco-Asian food: dishes with a French core layered with Asian elements drawn from Ong and his team’s experiences.

Among the standout dishes on the menu is the squid ink kueh pie tee, featuring squid ink shells filled with crab meat, jicama and a burst of flavour from XO sauce — a unique twist on a traditional favourite.

The duck confit truly embodies The Masses’ spirit. Brined and confited to perfection, the duck is served atop wok-fried rice noodles. This dish is not only the perfect harmonisation of French and Asian flavours but also tells the story of Ong’s background of working in a kway chap stall run by his parents. 

Another addition that has captivated many taste buds is corn and cereal dessert. A whimsical creation, this dish pairs warm toffee and corn pudding with a whisky caramel sauce, complemented by corn cereal and house-made cereal ice cream. It’s a sweet and comforting finale to the meal.

The Masses’ relocation also marks a new chapter in its culinary offerings. With a bigger dining capacity but the same commitment to quality and value, the restaurant continues to welcome foodies seeking a memorable and fun dining experience without the hefty price tag.

Whether you’re a long-time fan or a curious newcomer, a visit to The Masses will tell you Ong’s story through every dish you taste. Above all else, he and his team have a note for everyone: Eat well. Really well.
