Strong Aussie vibes with a touch of Peranakan style, The Lokal (which also means "bar or dining place" in German) is nestled at the corner of Neil Road. Led by Chef Darren Farr, The Lokal is all about Western comfort food and gourmet coffee which beans are from Sarnies
Despite of the crowd, service by the waitresses are well delivered with courtesy and hospitality.
I ordered a burger dish, but forgotten its name. Served with squid ink (or was it charcoal) buns, bacon, sunny side up with a thick slab of perfectly done salmon. Not only was it tasty, but definitely Instagram
Lu orderd Roasted Chicken Panini which did live up to expectations.
As mentioned earlier, beans are from Sarnies as this cafe is co-owned by the folks of Sarnies. Besides Latte ($5.5), German wheat beer Paulaner is also on tap.
Lastly, although both of us were filled, but we couldn't resist the temptation of Sticky Date Pudding. Blame it on the good sales speech by the waitress.
Served with a heap of vanilla ice cream, piping hot pudding and adorned with a thick layer of caramelized sugar, it was diabetic (but shiok)!
Opened till 1030pm, The Lokal is probably one of the spots for dinner and wind down after a long day of work.
