Fans of fusion cuisine will love Bam! Restaurant, an intimate joint on Tras Street that serves up tasty morsels on elegant small plates, proving that Spanish-influenced tapas and Japanese sake do go hand in hand. Executive chef Pepe Moncayo, who helms the kitchen, presents a menu of innovative creations such as the best-selling roasted suckling pig and pasta la plancha with prawn in butter sake sauce, which have been meticulously crafted for pairing with one of a hundred different sake labels that sit in its collection. Come on down to this Tanjong Pagar gem for delightful bites to accompany your after-work drinks but first, don’t forget to make a reservation.
The food is fantastic and the service is good too! The pairing of the sake with the food is good. Enjoy the whole experience there and will definitely go again with my family.
Chef Pepe is awesome. Food was served in a good portion and tasted super good. Love the ambience. Quiet and classy. Will definitely go back
Great dining experience , awesome flavourful dishes and Super service and team! I definitely recommend BAM to all who want to experience a different type of cuisine (Japanese-inspired tapas)
BAM! - Well patronized despite exorbitant pricing and meagre portions although staff friendly and efficient; besides the chef with looks and skills to die for - Wham!
We turned up as a group of 8 with high expectations but was sadly disappointed by our visit. The nature of our dinner was a reconnaissance site visit for another event we hold monthly that is a beef related event. Upon arrival the maître d soon realised who we were and understood our group needs. We ordered the 8 course Omakase menu ($150 per head) but requested an additional 5 rump steaks that were off the menu. 2 of the 8 dishes were amazing but for the most part the other dishes were underwhelming. For myself I requested a vegetarian menu but was ok with shellfish, during the meal they asked me if a meat broth was OK (which it wasn't clearly), they then served me prawns and squid which I would have preferred to have asked since I don't normally take these in my diet but since they are shellfish what can I say to that? Half way through the meal we checked where the steak was and our waiter said he'd check with chef but never returned with the answer and it was only when they started serving the desserts that we asked what happened to our steaks, again he wanted to check with chef but on this occasion I asked the maître d who said it was not available, I am not sure why this was not mention throughout the meal but it left us all very disappointed because the portion sizes of the 8 courses. Seems the communication between the floor staff and kitchen is seriously lacking because from my perspective it was the difference between a good meal and an average one. The wines on the list was 4 to 5 X the price of the same wines listed in Cold Storage according to our in-house wine expert, so we ordered sake instead and drank lots of it, the cheapest bottle was $174, so the place is not cheap for what you get. Of the 8 people at our table not one of us would return nor recommend this venue.
Great food, inventive and great scene at the bar. I would definitely recommend for relax business lunch or nice dinner. The indoor and outdoor spaces are great.
The various tapas are generally quite interesting and tasty. However portions for the main courses are too small. Good selection of sake, served in wine glasses.
