The Salted Plum, formerly Taiwanese pop-up diner Five Ten at South Bridge Road, offers popular Taiwanese street eats and more.

This hole-in-the-wall sets the mood of a fast-casual Taiwanese diner with upbeat Mandarin pop music from the early 2000s. Just as it did in its Five Ten days, it is keeping its prices between $5-$10 on average. Though with an expanded menu, there is the option of choosing slightly more luxurious dishes such as steamed Boston lobster with soy and sesame dressing ($25).

Malaysian-born chef de cuisine Shawn Koh helms the kitchen. With his experience from Five Ten and further research from a culinary trip to Taiwan, he has added new items to the menu the likes of Taiwanese sausage patties ($10) and braised pig intestines ($10).
