Duck down Boon Tat Street and into Den Bar & Kitchen at a given moment and you might find it functioning as a Europeanstyle bistro or a tapas and wine bar, depending upon the hour. Either way, you’re sure to find something to relish at one of Chinatown’s most chic and eclectic eateries. There’s a rationale behind the way that Den skips from casual panEuropean dining to specifically Spanish small plates and wine – designed with the theme of travel collecting in mind, Den likes to hop, skip, and jump its way between a number of culinary destinations, picking the best for its mercurial menus. Book a ticket and jump aboard to savour one of Singapore’s bestkept secrets.
Excellent chill out spot for large informal gatherings with casual bar food and value for money happy hours!
Perfect gathering spot for drinks with big groups and delicious bar snacks.
Not much service around the off-peak hours, but the food was great. Would recommend their mac and cheese, although the other pasta dishes are great as well.
First up, let us emphasise that though Singapore’s Den Bar & Kitchen offers a delicately designed and rather gourmet selection of European food and drink, they’re also generous hosts (especially, might we add, to those who book their culinary holidays in advance). Promotions here are as abundant as Champagne for first class fliers, so be sure to check out Den’s daily drink offers and daily healthy lunches for two. However, while Den’s Boon Tat Street premises are open Monday through Saturday for a simple cup of premium coffee with this Chinatown bistro’s quirky interior as a backdrop, the destination here is invariably their fine European food.
Lunchtime at Den Bar & Kitchen is a casual affair, with a restrained menu of specialties, each dish a winner. Choose between salads, a longer list of pasta dishes, carefully curated mains, and a couple of delectable desserts. Avowedly European in terms of ingredient profile, highlights include the adventurous watermelon rind pickle, feta, farro, mint and sunflower seed salad, and the pork belly pizza. For those looking for something heartier, the Grilled Squid, fish casserole, or DEN burger will certainly suffice. In the end it’s Dens evening tapas menu that draws a crowd to this cleanlined haunt for Singapore’s foodie set down Boon Tat Street. Match DEN's tapas with Den’s premium wines (almost exclusively old world) or craft beers (Golden Gambler, Big Wave Bay, Sevens Stout) and you’ll be calling Den your Chinatown home away from home in no time.
