I mentioned that I celebrated my birthday at a restaurant in the East that is quietly hidden from the busy streets of Singapore. The Bark Cafe offers an outdoor fusion dining experience. The place looks cozy and relaxing. I saw the place was slowly getting packed by people coming in from work. It was the perfect place to unwind with its abundant greenery and open air setting. It is nearby the Changi Prison Chapel and Museum. Too bad the museum was already when we arrived. It closes at 4:30PM. Maybe next time.
It was a small quiet dinner with hubby, Naj, my mother-in-law and I invited my friend, her hubby and her hubby’s sister. They also have a baby in tow like us. Naj and my friend’s baby are born two months apart.
Here is what we ordered:
This is one of their speciality. It is actually really good. You can get it 6pcs ($15.90) or 3pcs ($8.90). The waitress was nice enough to suggest that they will slice the wings into two to have more to share. It was crispy but not oily. No special sauces needed.
These fajitas ($17.90) are another crowd-pleaser. It comes in three pieces with a salad on the side. It’s a 10-inch tortilla with black pepper filling, mozzarella and capsicum. It is served with mixed greens and fries.
THE BARK PIZZA
Another bestseller of the cafe is the Bark Pizza. ($19.90). They have it in beef and chicken. This one is the beef pizza. We also ordered the chicken pizza but I failed to take a picture of it. Both are equally good but I prefer the chicken.
SEAFOOD AGLIO E OLIO
This pasta ($19.90) contains scallops, mussels, squid and shrimps. This was a bit spicy for me even if the waitress said this one is less spicy than the tomato-based spaghetti they have. I apologized for the blurry pictures. I need learn to take better pictures. If you any photography workshop coming us soon, let me know ok?
TAGLIATELLE AL RADIACCHIO
In plain English this means creamy bacon spaghetti. I haven’t tasted this pasta ( (S18.90) because I was already too full from all the other dishes. But my mother-in-law and hubby said it was really good. Sorry again for the blurry pictures. (I am using a Sony Nex 5T by the way. So anyone who uses the same camera, I hope you ca give me pointers.)
I got German beer for the men. My hubby said it is still not as strong as the Philippine beer. I guess no beer kicks as strong as Red Horse.
It was a fun and peaceful birthday celebration. It was nice to see that before my friend Mel and I were just carrying big bags in our travels, now we are carrying our babies, haha. We bonded during family medicine residency, went almost at the same time to Singapore to work and now we both happy wives and mothers. From stethoscopes to diapers…
The Bark Cafe is a hidden gem in the East which we will definitely come back to. Its walking distance from our place that if we are craving for pizza we know where we will go.
