California-based meat alternative brand Impossible Foods has struck yet again. It has expanded its borders beyond the United States in recent years, with Singapore the very first in Southeast Asia to bear the Impossible torch.
Geek Culture managed to get a handful of dishes from these joints, and we can confidently confirm for you that these entries are legit.
Dean & Deluca
The first of the four restaurants is Dean & Deluca. Leading their lineup is the crunchy, flaky Sausage Roll (S$22).
Every bite is accompanied with a satisfying crackle of the bread, complemented by the savoury Impossible meat seeping with rich ragu sauce. Other entires from Dean & Deluca are the Sloppy Joe Quesadillas (S$24) and the Cottage Pie (S$24).

Kinki Restaurant + Bar
The Kinki Restaurant + Bar holds the unique position of being the first Japanese restaurant in Singapore to feature the Impossible Foods recipe. We got to try their super crunchy and super sweet Impossible Katsu Sando With Apple Curry (from S$26).
The deep-fried Impossible patty wrapped in breadcrumbs and white bread just screams savoury, and dipping them into the apple curry sauce adds so much more oomph to every bite. Joining the Impossible Katsu Sando are the Impossible Omu Rice Burger (from S$28), as well as the Impossible Okonomiyaki (S$28).

The Marmalade Pantry
Need something closer to home? The Marmalade Pantry‘s Impossible Rendang Meatballs (from S$24) offer just that good bit of Singaporean spice to the mix.
The rendang Impossible meat is drenched in amazing savoury, spicy coconut sauce, and goes really well with white rice. Accompanying the rendang meatballs are the Marmalade Pie (from S$22), the Baked Cheesy Pasta (from S$26) and the Truffle Beef Burger (from S$30), which is exclusive to the ION Orchard outlet.

Oriole Coffee + Bar
Last but not least, Oriole Coffee + Bar brings more classic Western offerings to the mix, with the Impossible Juicy Lucy Quarter Pounder (from S$26) providing a more back-to-basics take on the Impossible Burger.
However, don’t be quick to write this one off as “just another Impossible Burger” — the melted Monterrey Jack cheese, caramelised onions and sauteed mushrooms provide a wonderful blend of flavour to the already juicy Impossible patty that will leave you wanting more after every bite. Similar classic entries at Oriole Coffee + Bar include the Impossible Sloppy Joe Pizza (from S$24) and the Impossible Spaghetti Bolognese (from S$26).

And there you have it; four Impossibly good new locations to consider for your next meat alternative outing. Don’t say we didn’t extend the invite.
