Bugis is one of the major nightlife areas of Singapore, and the dining options available are extensive. Beach Road runs straight through the heart of the district and just where it meets Middle Road, you can find Black Tongue Bistro & Bar, where you can pick up some of the best coffee in the area and a Western-influenced meal. Or, go for the full bar menu, with cocktails, German, craft and global beers plus an extensive wine list (watch out for happy hour). Reserve a table for you and your friends before taking the train to Bugis or Esplanade station and wandering around the corner to Black Tongue.
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.
Tried the salted egg burger, beef patty burger and apple crumble.. it's delicious.. the apple crumble is best to be shared.. the staff are nice and friendly.. the ambience of the cafe is great.. it's walkable distance from bugis mrt..
Very good dining experience with good food and service! Attentive and friendly staff. Would definitely go back for the charcoal salted egg burger and spam fries! Thumbs up!
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.
