Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar is this spacious and welcoming destination where one can feel right at home having a breezy brunch with the family or savouring drinks and late night dinner after work with friends. 

Taking centre stage is an enormous counter that seats up to 20 inspired by what one might find in a medieval tavern but given a generous contemporary twist with the use of black marble. In a bid to encourage a convivial environment, customers are welcome to share dining space and mingle at this communal table as well as tap their own beers upon ordering. 

Customers will be beckoned by an intoxicating aroma of daily-baked fresh artisanal breads and pastries as soon as they step in. The hearty Guinness Stout bread is truly a unique beer- infused bread in Singapore. This dark bread carries the beer’s distinctive caramel aftertaste while maintaining a sense of lightness in texture. You won’t be able to stop at just one slice!

 

An ideal destination for all day cocktails and evening drinks and revelry, Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar also serves a wide range of quality alcoholic beverages and has the longest Happy Hour in town from 8am to 8pm. Besides Strongbow Apple Ciders, Heineken and Erdinger on draught, guests can also look forward to a range of signature drinks which include: Wicked Calamansi Sour, Yuzu Breeze, Raspberry Lychee Ice Tea, Dirty Sriracha Bloody Mary and Summer Sangria for groups.

Hearty good food paired with wide array of cocktails

Nassim Hill Bakery is located at Tanglin Post Office, a rather iconic building at the edge of Orchard Road.  With a comprehensive drinks list and beer and apple cider on taps, Nassim Hill Bakery is more than just a bakery - it is an energetic chilling out haven with good music and array of European magazines amidst its dim, comfortable decor in the spacious bistro.

We started with one of their signature items - Guinness Stout Bread(SGD$8.00), malt-flavoured, infused beautifully with the bittersweetness of the dark beer we all know so well; this fluffy bread goes perfectly well with butter or marmalade.

Next, we had the Market Fresh Mussels with a hint of Chilli (SGD$25.00), 250grams of French Bouchot mussels are cooked with white wine, Sriracha butter cilantro and garlic and served with crispy baguette on the side. The tiny, sweet mussels were squishy with flavourful gravy, tinged with a little hint of chilli as promised; the gravy was so good, we were still taking turns to consume it long after the mussels were gone.

The Kale Caesar (SGD$17.00) in creamy anchovy dressing, sliced hard-boiled eggs, prosciutto chips, parmesan crumbs and sliced garlic croutons - was something new. It was the first time I ate kale - one of the much-loved superfoods in the western parts of the globe, a very healthy and nutrients-rich vegetable, and I can see why it is being loved.  A Caesar without the usual refreshing leaves of lettuce, but replaced by crispy sprigs of kale that gave a good bite and gentle "green" favour; nothing too overpowering - a little like eating the top part of brocooli, only leafier. I loved the prosciutto chips too, so this great-tasting salad made it to my list of "must order" when I revisit.

Moving on, Chilli Crab Pasta (SGD$16.00 for half-sized / SGD$25.00 for full-sized) - jumbo lump crab meat sautéed with own spicy and tangy chilli crab sauce on spaghetti. The springy strands of pasta was good with bite, as is the robustness of the thick sauce - a local delight, infused with sweet crab meat and spiciness. The gravy was so good, I couldn't resist dipping baguette bread into it to soak up the goodness; however I also feel that the pasta can do with less sauce because it was a little "wet",  like being drenched in soup.

I really dug this Triple X Chocolate Cake (SGD$9.00) - rich, lavish slice of moist chocolate cake infused beautifully with triple sec, giving it a bittersweet flavour amidst the aroma of chocolate, well executed with a solid base and gentle interior.

Then there was Pear Cheddar Crumble (SGD$11.00) stoking one's immediate passion for its baked pear, gelato scoop and crispy cheese biscuits on the side, satiating the palate in terms of texture and taste.

Plenty of drinks and food options. For starters, there is a HGW promo at the moment where every 2 main course orders after 4pm (except pizza) will get you a free light bites. Choose either the popcorn chicken with sriracha aioli, or the soft shell crab with chive remoulade. Terms and condition applies. Have tried both, and these light bites goes well with the beer/cider.

Happy Hour starts from 8am to 8pm. Serious. For cider, only Strongbow on tap. For beer, there's Heineken and Erdinger draft. There's a wine list too, if you're interested. If you like tangy and very spicy flavours, try the Sriracha Bloody Mary. Sounds like a wake-up drink. Didn't try though, since my preference was towards the sweet and fruity Raspberry Lychee Iced Tea (@$18++). Wished it had more vodka though.

If you're looking superfood salad, they do have Kale Caesar (@$17++) on its menu. Not only was it packed with vitamins, minerals and proteins, the salad was tasty too. Another crowd pleaser, was the Market Fresh Mussels with a hint of Chili (@$25++). Soak piece after piece of fluffy bread with the umami'ish sauce, and we're all set for the night. For carbs, the Chili Crab Pasta (@$16++/$25++) packed a punch with its small chilies. Plenty of sauce and loaded with jumbo lump crab meat. No fried mantous for the excess sauce, but I think the Guinness Stout bread works too!

For meat eaters, there's the Grain Fed Angus T-bone Steak (@$65++), all 500 gms of meaty glory.

For desserts, the Triple X (@$9++), the Pear with Cheddar Crumble (@$11++) and even the Carrot Cake (@$8++) were all enjoyable. Triple X because it is chocolate cake that's light and moist, with a heady orange flavour from the Triple Sec liquor. The saltish biscuit like cheddar crumble was a perfect foil for the sweet vanilla ice-cream. Unfortunately, the pear was a tad too crunchy. Liked the light carrot cake that's not overpowered by spices and not too sweet. Just nice.

Full Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2015/08/nassim-hill-bakery-bistro-bar-tasting.html


Located in old Tanglin Post Office off Tanglin Road, Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar is well known for many things, in particular, their delicious, freshly baked French bread and pastries, communal tavern atmosphere, and being able to tap your own beer!

Ambience at Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar is styled to resemble a medieval European / German tavern, with colourful stained glass windows, globule lamps, large and sturdy oak wood dining tables, and a communal marble counter with beer taps at the end. While there are bright spotlights throughout the interior, these are often kept off, lit by natural lighting during the day, and low, warm ambient lighting at night, lending a feeling of serenity and intimacy, though it makes photography difficult. The buzzing, friendly atmosphere is welcoming, and the aromatic smell of baking perfumes the place. Great!

Service at Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar is decent / average. The relatively young staff are cheerful and friendly, offering greetings / goodbyes, and seating guests quickly. Product knowledge is lacking in the junior staff, they cannot describe dishes, nor make confident recommendations, although they are up-to-date on current promotions. Thumbs up for efficiency, they came around regularly to clear and change empty / dirty plates. Lacking in attention to details, as they did not top up our cutlery, I resorted to taking it from the empty table next to ours after every course.

Food at Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar is modern bistro quality, with primarily French and Italian influences. In particular, their bread and dessert pastries, which are freshly baked / prepared each day, is the speciality here. They also feature a rather extensive menu of appetizers and entrees, with hits and misses. Portions are large, and suitable for sharing. Prices are reflective of a high-end bistro / gastrobar, budget about SGD $50 per person for a proper meal here. If you're just getting cakes / bread / pastries, budget about SGD $8 per person.

The unique Cheddar Cheese Bacon Waffles (SGD $19) is worth ordering, because it combines bacon and waffles. BACON & WAFFLES! With cheddar cheese and bacon bits baked directly into their waffle batter, served with rashers of bacon, and a chive sour cream on the side. The waffle texture is the thin and crisp version, and my only minor complaint is that it's slightly dry, though this is helped by the fragrant chive sour cream. Worth ordering, because... bacon & waffles!

This is among the best Chili Crab Pasta (SGD $25) I've had in Singapore thus far. The spaghetti is done al-dente, with some bite, the chili crab gravy is thick, with alternating notes of sweet, savoury, tangy, and spicy, and there is some lingering heat. The generous portion of fresh, deshelled crab meat, and spicy chili padi complete this dish. Highly recommended!
