Expert review of 1 TwentySix
1 TwentySix is one of the few fashionable restaurants on the east coast, overlooking the seafront. Don’t expect waves crashing on the shore, more like joggers and cyclists hitting the park, but it’s still a chic getaway.
1 TwentySix offers gastro bites and European fare with an Asian touch. My mum had the shell fish cabonara, which was rich and creamy, but not too heavy. While I opted for the baby snapper fillet cooked crispy with minted pea cream and fries. My partner had the 126 burger, a monstrous-sized meal with a juicy meat patty. Save room for dessert, the Valhrona dark and white chocolate fondant with coconut praline ice-cream is a sensation.
Modern furniture and candle lit tables situated in a tropical garden looking out over the seafront. There’s a relaxed and chilled atmosphere, especially with the live band in the evenings.
It was a busy Friday night and we did have trouble getting hold of a waiter to start with, but overall the service was of a good standard.
On the east coast parkway, near the Big Splash playground, this is perfect weekend brunch location overlooking the sea and bay front area. Best take a taxi as there isn’t an MRT station in site.
Mains are roughly $30-50, so a little on the pricey side. There’s also a communal set menu priced at $70++ per person, featuring a large variety of seafood and meat dishes to share, ideal for large groups. The brunch menu is a little cheaper.
1 TwentySix is part of the One Rochester group of restaurants - featuring One Rochester at Rochester Park, 1 Altitude in the CBD and 1 Caramel
