Food Review – Handle Bar

with 6 comments

OK. Time for some food review!

Last Friday, my roomie is so rich from his industrial attachment and scholarship (where people said, get big portion of PORK) and decided to give me a treat together with some friends in this special bar located quite far away from our varsity.

It’s Handle Bar.

Please forgive my SAMPA-ness. I’m George from the jungle. But telling you all honestly, I’ve never got to this kind of place before. Nor anything similar. Not to say the ambience is different than the ones I had in some other cafes or bars before, just that I’ve never see so many Ang Mos gathered around other than at the CBD. 

i can smell fish here…

Hey I can’t find that many Ang Mos even in Ang Mo Kio lor !!!

It’s definitely one very special place to be. Despite being catered to most Ang Mo clients,  it is renovated uniquely that sometimes I do get confused with their stuff… Like their menu…

At first sight I didn’t realise it is something that it was supposed to be.

And they have got all the wicky weird names for their dishes. Well, just how often do you “SLAP YO MAMA PORK CHOP” ???!!

Wy Leong got us this drink. Well being a GUAI GUAI ZHAI i never drank a cocktail before. Now it’s 1 glass.

FROZEN Magarita Tequila Sunrise… or whatever the hell name it has… =.=”

Then the main dish is out … first … is the SLAP YO MAMA PORK CHOP!

I bet you can see the portion of the dish just looking at the picture. Dude I swear I never photoshop it and it was what it supposed to be! I think it really deserved the name “SLAP YO MAMA” as it slapped mine… … oooops ..

But seriously, the first piece was nice to eat and chew and whatever you want to do with it but as time goes by, the 2nd piece seemed more like a torture to me… =.=” At $20 per plate, it’s quite worth it, just that you better finish it fast or suffer, that’s all…

Then the rest came up as well. While we were eating the 2nd piece and suffering like them below…

i want to slap yo mama… slap yo mama… slap yo mama!!!

While all of us were finishing up the side dishes… Wy Leong wondered where was his “Silence of the Lamb” ?

After 45 minutes long waited hunger, it arrived !! I bet it took a lot of effort and time to “SILENCE” the lamb before it got served…

Then as usual we won’t want to miss the special ambient around this special bar and restaurant! So we took the chance …

Not bad for a bar! Apart from the seats that we got were too mood-killing with super dim light, I guess everything was above average. Suprisingly, I think the price is still okay compared to those ‘class’ restaurant in the shopping mall. I would suggest you drop by here once awhile and perhaps you may meet a few girls wearing sarongs here…


At least in the bar, when you are thirsty… you can do this!

ooops… i mean this…
