Full Poppies Bistro-Bar review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/08/poppies-bistro-bar.html
Situated in Siglap since it opened it's doors in November 2013, Poppies Bistro-Bar is a stylish, laid-back European style cafe that serves uncomplicated yet tasty food. A cosy haven for family meals, or romantic dates, Poppies Bistro-Bar also has several enticing weekly pormotions, such as free dining for children all weekend!
Ambience at Poppies Bistro-Bar is so laid-back, it's the sort of place you could just wander up, and plonk yourself into one of their super comfy sofas. The large 3 meter fan acts as both an eye catching showpiece and cools the interior, while the flueur-de-lis / stylised floral floor tiles lend a touch of elegance. Poppies Bistro-Bar also screens live sports, though I think their television is slightly small to screen for a crowd.
Service at Poppies Bistro-Bar is very good! Staff are friendly, welcoming, and polite, offering greetings upon entry. Orders are served quickly and promptly, and the staff vibe feels family-like. Diners are given individual attention, and asked for feedback on the meal / experience. The family-friendly staff also greet kids, provide utensils for them, and sometimes even play with them!
Food at Poppies Bistro-Bar is Western / Intercontinental style, with a mix of cuisines ranging from British, American, French, and Italian dishes on the menu. Food styling is not a strong point at Poppies Bistro-Bar, most dishes are presented simply, and look uncomplicated and plain. But they sure pack flavour, I think that most individual components of a dish are tasty and well cooked! Prices are mid-range for a cafe, costing between SGD $14 - $23 per main course, and portions are nicely sized for one person.
Beer Stella Artois (SGD $14 Pint) is the only draught beer on tap here. Their weekly Thirsty Thursday promotion has this going for only SGD $7 per pint from 7pm till 10pm!
The Classic French Onion Soup (SGD $10) is a thin but flavourful broth, with soft, caramelised onions within the soup. Taste is potent but not overpowering, with a touch of sweetness. Lovely and satisfiying, especially with their home made toasted gruyere cheese crouton. The only drawback was the thin layer of oil on the surface of the soup.
The Omelette 3 Egg - Onion, Mushroom, Ham (SGD $15) has smooth, creamy, fluffy egg omelette. Enveloped within is a generous stuffing of 3 fillings of your choice, we went with onions, mushrooms, and ham. The filling was cooked well, the onions were sweet with a slight bite, the mushrooms were fresh, and lent an earthy taste to the omelette. Doesn't look like much when served, but is very filling, and overall, an above average egg omelette!
The Big Breakfast (SGD $18) is served with a generous portion of crisp, smoky bacon, perfectly grilled pork sausages, baked beans, grilled tomato, sauteed mushrooms, fluffy scrambled eggs, crisp toasted white bread, and breakfast potatoes.
