The heat of Singapore can get a little oppressive, particularly in the summer months, so finding somewhere that offers peace and quiet, and particularly, a breath of fresh air, is of the utmost importance. Enter The Bark Café on Upper Changi Road. Guests to this fusion eatery are greeted with a dining room which is open to the garden at the rear, allowing the Singaporean air to blow through and cool things down a little. Those looking for inventive pan-Asian and international food are in the right place. The kitchen here is inventive without throwing out diner’s favourite dishes; try the Japanese saba fish or the roasted smoked pepper duck, both dishes really showcase the kitchen’s talent. If you fancy something a little more Western, there’s a fine selection of German and British-inspired dishes on offer too.
It isn’t just the food that’s pulling customers to The Bark Café on Upper Changi Street. In fact, the bar is an event in itself. Packed out in the week with live music fans looking to hear the best from local and foreign bands Monday through Thursday is one of the best places to catch a show in Singapore. This is a serious bar, and all serious bars, of course, need a pool table. The table here is very popular so anticipate a long wait to get a turn! Head down here for a fusion food menu, drinks, music, and pool, if you’re lucky.
