Located at the corner of Amara Hotel in the up-and-coming hipster zone of Tanjong Pagar, we rate Bar-Roque highly for a boozy weekday lunch or fun night out with friends. The restaurant’s two focal points are the modern innovative rotisserie — one of the biggest in Singapore – and its outdoor terrace. Its décor reflects the exuberance of the Baroque style in a contemporary idiom, with patterned wallpaper and plush furniture counter- pointed by the natural textures of masonry walls and wood beams, metal and bricks.
The foood is seriously good. We recommend the Foie Gras Terrine, Snails “Cocotte” Garlic & Parsley Butter and Wagyu Hanger Steak. The Australian pork knuckle, delightfully crisp tart flambée, indulgent seafood platter, and “Mom’s” apple pie are all excellent. Plates can be shared.
