This refreshing choice comes with a set menu of a starter, an entree, a main and a dessert at $88. Wine pairing is also available upon request.

Welcome to Charly T’s Food Journeys!

Hawaiian Kalua Pork

I’ve been to Dhoby Ghaut plenty of times and each time I walked past Charly T’s, I’ve always thought it was just another Western cafe/bistro/restaurant. And to add to that, I didn’t even know the place was called NOMU. But nevermind that, as for Charly T’s it is not just your regualr Western cuisine joint, but rather a doorway into a selection of International Cuisine that Charly himself experienced while he was globetrotting throughout the continents when he was younger.

Charly T’s is said to encapsulate the hometown flavours of each dish while bringing them to Singapore to let guests savour an experience beyond borders. From their famous Rotisserie chicken which has been wonderfully marinated for over ten hours and Asian creations like the Kampong Amber Sticks, coupled with choices of sauces of up to 9 varieties, this is one restaurant with a chill out vibe to Jazz, Food, Travel and more.

Cocina de Pasion, Fulfilling That Rustic Touch of Spanish Cuisine


Tanjong Katong is almost like a street full of surprises. If you take a stroll past the shophouses, there will be many outlets of unique interest here and there. My previous visit to the area brought me to Bruno’s Pizzeria and Grill where I experienced a very tasty and creamy Linguine Al Granchio.
