Accessible place with decent selection of beers (Australian Lagers, Belgian Pilsners, Ludwigs, Timmermans (belgium fruit beers) and the list goes on). Please ignore the miniscule selection of hard liquor, wine and non-alcoholic drinks. Beers are the mainstay here.
Happy hour promotion lasts till 8pm and its 1-for-1 for their beers on tap.
The fiance started with a Tripel Karmeliet ($16) whilst waiting for me to finish my errand. We then both took up the 1-for-1 promotion, Konig Ludwig Dunkel @ 0.3L ($13 per glass originally).
There is a decent selection of typical main courses and bar grub. Standard offerings of fish & chips, chicken wings, pork belly skewers, beef stew, bratwursts, fries, etc. However I find that the main courses are more value for money since the price range for both main courses (pizzas included) and bar grub are pretty much similar.
We started the meal with the Bratwurst Galore @ $17.90 (get to select 3 out of 5 types), served with mashed potatoes, saukeraut and mustard dip. The saukeraut was not bad, surprisingly, although the taste does reminds me of Grandma (hmmm). Unless you fancy salty mustard dip, you may wish to avoid the mustard dip. At least I found it salty and not to my liking.
The fiance had the Fish & Chips, served with honey mustard dressing on greens and tartare sauce ($14.90). The fish fillets are of a decent size and can be daunting for a small eater. Took a bit and it was OK. Not fishy and seasoned.
I had the Oven Baked Dory Fillet ($17.90). Sliced small young potatoes, stalks of broccoli and the dory fillet were baked together in cream sauce and covered with cheese and onions. Hence, I felt that justice was not done to the broccoli as its a teeny bit overcooked. Otherwise, this course was average and nothing to rave about.
Noted people ordering pizzas, bar grub and stews. The accompanied carbo with the stew is of a pretty generous portion.
Formerly Sakae Sushi, its at the atrium where alfresco dining is the norm more than indoor dining. Besides, its really much better to dine alfresco unless one really needs air-con. A 2-man band provides the entertainment and piped in music played when the band takes a break. There is a TV indoors if one wants to catch sports in action on cable.
Great place to chill out with friends and chat the night away. It is accessible too with the MRT station in walking distance and cab stand right behind the building.
