More about Black Tongue Bistro & Bar, Singapore

When you’re eating in Singapore, you’re spoiled for choice when in terms of dining destinations. There are restaurants offering up everything from Cantonese classics and sushi specialities to Korean BBQ or Thai mookata hotpot from Asia, as well as Western favourites such as burgers, pastas, tapas and soups. Black Tongue Bistro & Bar on Beach Road in the centre of Bugis caters to the palates of the growing bistro and cafe scene in Singapore, where a cosmopolitan menu tempts with dishes that speak to the soul.

The breath of the cuisine on offer at Black Tongue is impressive, and the international scope is the main reason to make the journey down to Beach Road. Start with an Asian appetiser – grilled chicken satay, Thai-style top shell or charbroiled teriyaki salmon – before moving onto a main in the form of slow-cooked beef cheek, duck leg confit or Korean BBQ short ribs. Book a table at Black Tongue and head on over to Bugis – that’s the local train station, although you can also go to Esplanade or Promenade – for one of the best bistros in Singapore. Don’t forget that Black Tongue does a great all-day brunch, too, from 11am until 5pm on weekends, with classics like eggs Florentine and scrambled eggs on toast.

Nice ambience, good portionof food and the mushroom appetizer were the best! However the music can be a little loud if you were to seat at the speaker area.

This bistro/bar is cozy. Food is nice and the ambience is great. Staff are attentive too. Recommended for chilling out on Fridays and small group gatherings.

This is our first time patronizing your Bistro. I brought my colleagues on 15 Jul evening. The food was yummy. We ordered the new Matcha Squid Ink Burger, Buttered Salted Egg Fish & Chips, Crispy Mushroom, Wild Mushroom soup, Nutella Crepe and not forgetting a bottle of Red Wine. But the Nutella Crepe was a little disappointed. I will bring other colleagues some other days. The lady staff with spectacle is very service-oriented. Well done. I didnt get her name though. Thank you.

The food was good. Great variety of burgers and the salted egg fish and chips was yummy. Not a good range of desserts though. A nice chill place nonetheless !
