Discovering 18 Hours
18 Hours is one of the few places that is simple and chill to dine in. Sometimes, because of the ambience, you’d think the food and the service will be dry and irritating – but, it is always about to prove you wrong.
18 Hours is an underrated place, a treasure chest hiding in Chinatown of Singapore. I was never disappointed dining here – they’re very good hosts, their service is fast, and their food is better than I expected.
The place is usually packed, because it is a great place to go to when you are on budget. There was one time when the service was slow, but it was because the place was packed and people just kept coming in. We didn’t mind the wait, considering we weren’t the only people who ordered food.
The good thing about the place is the staff are always alert and they never let anyone go without taking their orders. They also have WIFI, so it was not a hassle to wait since you can surf the net and keep yourself busy while waiting for the food.
When the food did come, I didn’t really expect the generous portion sizes. The waiters and servers were also very detailed in explaining the menu, giving great suggestions of the bestsellers here.
The ambience at 18 Hours was very western, and even the food had an amazing fusion to it. On some nights, they even have a good stage for performers, with a good amount of beer to everyone’s disposal. It isn’t even expensive, and worth every ounce of beer!

The 18 Hours Menu
When did cheese, bacon and french fries disappoint? If they do not disappoint apart, imagine them all on top of each other plus a dip? That is nowhere disappointing!
The most important thing about eggs is how it is prepared. People are so different, we all love our eggs prepared in certain ways. It all comes down to our preferences. As for me, I want the eggs cooked in a really fast way – cook on the outside but still runny in the inside. It doesn’t even have to be poached to achieve this preparation.
My favorite in 18 Hours is the Eggs Benedicts (S$12.90)! They just made everything right – bacon, poached eggs, the sauce, the muffins! It’s just making my mouth water right now, thinking about it. I’m sorry, Gudetama! I found a winner!
The Ultimate Burger (S$19.29) definitely didn’t disappoint. It was meaty and generous with the tomatoes and sauces. The best thing about the burger is the spices has somehow sipped its way into the patty, and you can taste them at every bite. I think, it deserves its price, because it is one of those burgers you didn’t just get at every turn in Singapore.
The disappointing bit was the fries. While it wasn’t soggy or plain and bland, it was sort of oily and greasy. But, it didn’t turn me off the burger. It was still a good pair, and it was all fresh! I just prefer my fries a little crunchy on the outside, and filled in the inside – just not with oil.
The Tuscani Salmon Pesto is only available at the Hotel 1887 branch, but it is definitely one of the reasons why you should go there.
Salmon is a very difficult fish to prepare. It has to still have its flavor, its texture when it is being cooked. The smell has to be reduced to a minimum, because sometimes, the fishiness of the salmon can be good.
In this case, the salmon was amazingly prepared! I could taste the crunch, the blend of the salmon with its sauce. The salmon was cooked just right to make sure the taste and the texture remains the same – the tender inner meat was just heavenly!
18 Hours is a perfect place to dine with family on a busy day, when you have to move around a lot. The food is very affordable, and it’s really worth every penny. I haven’t had a bad experience here at all, and I am sure no one has, too! They’re really good hosts to their customers.
