Harry’s Bar & Cafe (Juhu) – Review
A hectic day at work asks for an evening with friends. When in doubt on what to do to unwind yourself, tune into a place with good music, grab a fancy drink at the bar and shake your legs to a move or two.
Ask where one could experience this at Juhu and Harry’s Bar & Cafe would be the preferred choice! Yes, you heard it right! Singapore’s iconic bar chain – Harry’s present in the bustling suburb has become a desired destination to spend some good time. Located close to Copa, this place seems to be the destination that serves good food, interesting signature cocktails and tap & bottles beers, great music and celebrity faces sitting next to you at the bar.
Speaking about the bar, one might surely know their comfort cocktail but with an interesting menu that serves extensive choices like the one Harry’s offers, you are going to end up taking your own sweet time on deciding your poison. You would find great choices like the Dirty Harry – a Vodka based cocktail with Demerara and Litchis or Eye Candy – a Watermelon Martini created by Michelle from Harry’s Singapore or even Harry’s Old Fashioned – A scotch based cocktail with infused oranges and Demerara, served on ice with hints of bitters but some drinks might grab your attention just for the kick to try something different, say the Caramel Popocorn Martini. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
However, the drink we kick start our experience at Harry’s hinted towards something on the menu called the Blood on the Rooftop! It reads – 4 spirits served with peachy lemonade and a big splash of red wine, do we have your full attention now? Looks enchanting when served and if you love to keep your spirits high, this is your drink!
While sipping on our drinks, the appetisers and mains made its way! Our menu consisted of Chimichurri Chicken, Market Salad, Pattaya Beach Fish Goujons, Muchos Veg Nachos, Sticky Rice Bowl, The Pasta Bowl and Braised Pork Riblets.
The Pattya Beach Fish was a delightful starter! Soft pieces of fish oriented with soy and spring onions is one of the better starters that pairs well with the cocktails offered here! Spicy, juicy and apt, go for it!
The Muchos Veg Nachos and Chimichurri Chicken were an average option. Feels like monotonous after a point of time with less appealing taste and nothing to accompany them well.
Having said that, the mains don’t disappoint one bit. The Sticky Rice Bowl is a comfort meal. Thai Chicken Curry blends perfectly after a light appetiser course.
Same goes with the Prawns Pasta Bowl. Evenly spread flavours served on a bed of Spaghetti makes you feel you have chosen the right options for dinner.
Braised Pork Riblets infact might walk out with the best words. Perfectly made and was very very very succulent. Highly recommended.
These mains were concluded with a fancy dessert called the Drunken Volcano Cake. Warm chocolate pudding with Vanilla Gelato. It’s on flames -> It’s on your spoon -> It’s in your tummy -> its over! Such a delicious treat this is, don’t miss out on it!
In all, Harry’s Bar & Cafe not only offers some really amazing drinks but also good food, unlike most bars. So if you are in Juhu and looking for a good place to spend a really good evening, head here!
