My first tip if you want to experience Singapore's newest Greek eatery - make a reservation!! We finally scored a Saturday night table, by booking ahead. Yes, this place is popular. Only open for around a month, they have clearly hit the spot. We sat down to dine at 8pm and enjoyed a leisurely dinner - love not being rushed. By the time we left around 11pm or so, the place was still bustling with lots of people and atmosphere.
Located at 3 Seng Poh Road, in the Tiong Bahru area, just around the corner from The Link Hotel, Bakalaki Greek Taverna occupies a large, open modern space, with a great outdoor seating area as well. Whilst it may not look like your typical Greek Taverna (think the normal Blue and White), I loved the contemporary decor and the overall feel of the place. Assistant General Manager Christos gives a super friendly welcome, the wait staff were very knowledgeable, and the food - well the food was really, really good.
The portion sizes are generous, in fact, on this occasion, we ordered way too much for just two of us. We loved the fact that dishes can be shared, which is great for a couple or a group of friends to experience the different flavors.
They have a great list of Greek wines. Our red was superb, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Peloponnese, priced at $78.90 a bottle, not too outrageously priced for Singapore. They also have wines by the glass, cocktails and Greek soft drinks as well as of course the Greek liquors and aperitif's. In fact, it was hard to resist finishing the meal with the obligatory Ouzo, which went down rather nicely with the complimentary Baklava.
Bakalaki is definitely a place I would go for a lunch with the girls, or for coffee and dessert in the afternoon. We will definitely be going back for dinner, as we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
