THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Isle of Singapore Restaurant Review: The Chinese food served here is just fine, but the Singaporean and Indonesian side of the menu are pure gold in this modest neighborhood restaurant. Chef-owner David Yea was a chef in Singapore before coming to Denver. Start with gado-gado, a classic Indonesian salad that combines fresh veggies with lightly fried tofu strips, topped with a tongue-tingling peanut sauce. The mussels in black bean sauce are tender, earthy and...well, just perfect. The sapi saos istimewa (grilled steak strips marinated with star anise in a rich, brown sauce) is equally yummy, as are the calamari in a salty shrimp-fish paste. Most of the dishes here are heavily spiced with ginger, curry or chiles, so if you don't go for spicy ask your server for suggestions. For dessert, nothing soothes the tongue and throat like a mango smoothie or a small bowl of sweet, cool lychees. The friendly staff is used to describing dishes, answering questions, and bringing out small portions for tasting.
