Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar

AmericanBeerEuropeanPizzaWesternWine

With its late night dinner and bar bites offerings and very comprehensive drinks menu, Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar, nestled in the Tanglin Post Office building, brings new energy and excitement to the downtown dining and bar scene. With its extensive drinks menu that includes a variety of beers and apple ciders on tap, wines, whiskies, boutique malts, champagnes, spirits, liquors and cocktails, Nassim Hill has become the perfect spot for the ultimate pairing between great cuisine and drinks. Taking centre stage is an enormous marble counter that seats up to 20 something one might find in a medieval tavern. Customers in Nassim Hill are encouraged to share dining space and mingle at the counter and the communal tables, and tap their own apple cider or draught beers at the end of the counter, where the taps are located. The bar also serves its unique all-day signature cocktails such as Yuzu Breeze or Sriracha Bloody Mary and has the longest happy hour in town from 8 am to 8 pm. The bistro is also well known for its famed malt-flavored Asahi Kuronama bread, used in their signature Hot Reuben sandwich. Taking a spin on classic dishes, the bistro also offers Spicy Eggs Benedict and Chili Crab pasta as well as healthier alternatives such as their generously sized Detox Salad and Asian Chicken salads.

A little slice of heaven

So many cool cafes popping up in Singapore nowadays, but this place is a little gem. My friend recommended me the bacon and cheese waffles... sounds counter-intuitive, but they certainly did not disappoint! The waffles were just the right combination of crispy outside, with specks of browned cheese, and chewy on the inside. Topped with copious lashings of maple syrup (it WAS sunday brunch after all!) it made for an indulgent treat to be washed down with their amazing coffee. The hot chocolate was lackluster though, watery and thin. Maybe that's why the server said he didn't know how good it was. hmmm. 

Go before 10:30am on a weekend if you want a quiet morning... after that it gets crowded fast.

good sweet potato fries...

went with a bunch of colleagues as there is 1-for-1 dinner promo... i ordered the salmon with sweet potato & beet chips, plating seems a little sad because the big plate has the salmon in the middle and a few chips surronding the salmon, chips not so nice either... one of my colleague order the cheddar cheese bacon waffles, not a fan of bacon but the waffles was nice... brownie parfait was also good... lastly is the sweet potato fries, they are superrrr nice that it is addictive...

Poor service, expensive breakfast... never again

Went for breakfast with family this morning. Service was slow as the crowd grew which was still tolerable but the staff certainly needs more training. Twice I signal to a particular staff and twice I was ignore despite being aware that I was in need of attention. Food in my personal opinion also did not match the premium pricing. When I commented to Kenny the manager when paying my bill which I had to personally go up to them at the payment counter since I was not given much attention he shrugged and was not able to give a reply. Not sure about lunch or dinner but my advice skip this place if you want to go for breakfast and only if you have lots of money to burn.

Slow service, average food

ervice way too sluggish, understand lack of staff, queued 45 mins, waited 15 mins for our drinks, 1 hours for first main, waited 2 hours for fish and chips, it way to unacceptable. hope the service can be better.

A Place to Chill

I have been to Nassim Hill Bakery before, but it is mostly for the afternoon cake and coffee. With the revamp menu though ( and the one for one DBS offers), one can stay for that long leisurely lunch or continue from coffee to dinner without having to worry about where to head off for that proper meal.

At a recent visit, I stated with the mussels. Blue mussels are used which have a natural strong saltwater content. Very addictive indeed.

I also tried the beef burger, which was really hearty.

My favourite main course though had to be the Rosemary Lamb Chop with Polenta Cubes ($39). The lamb was done to perfection, chargrilled on the outside with its juices retained with a slight gamy tinge to it.

Finally, if you are into Canadian food, or just need your carbs, the Poutine will do just fine. Thick cream cheese on fries - could be a meal by itself.

For desserts I tried the Apple Crumble and Carrot Cake-  one with crunch and the other a smooth eat all the way.

Well there you have it, Nassim Hill is certainly more than just a bakery.
