7 Best Lunch Sets at Bar Bar Black Sheep – Only $10.90 Nett!
Walking along the conserved heritage shophouses outside Botanic Gardens, you could almost miss Bar Bar Black Sheep because it feels like a secret hideout from the hustle bustle. From the rear of the main shophouse building, there was no big and loud restaurant entrance but just a stairs down to the restaurant.
That’s the beauty of Bar Bar Black Sheep. It is convivial without being loud, intimate without being claustrophobic. It’s the kind of place where I want to chill out with friends at night over beer, or have a delicious lunch with such a huge menu.
Bar Bar Black Sheep has long established itself since 2007 as a pub offering a wide range of international cuisine. At the Cluny Court outlet, there is a trio of North Indian, Western and Thai grub, each prepared independently by the different chefs who excel in their own cuisine. While having your meal, don’t forget to order cocktails, premium spirits, wines, bottled beers, and European draft beers- all at very reasonable prices. Guess what, the restaurant is offering super affordable lunch set at only $10.90 nett.
NORTH INDIAN CUISINE
North Indian food is rich in Indian spices and ingredients which gives mouth watering dishes like kebabs, naans, biryanis, daals etc. Not only can we get these lovely indian cuisines from Little India, Bar Bar Black Sheep also serves quality Indian food.
The Butter Chicken delivered a sweet, buttery and fragrant taste with the traditional spices of coriander, cumin, cinnamon and cilantro. Boneless pieces of chicken were cooked with puree of tomatoes, cream and mild spices. This is best paired with homemade Lassi ($7.90). I tried the mango one which a refreshing smoothie-style drink that is creamy and refreshing. Other flavours include peach, orange, strawberry or plain.
For the vegetarian, not to worry! The talented Indian chef also has vegetarian set featuring Palak Paneer and Bindi masala. Fresh home-made cottage cheese were cooked in rich gravy. Don’t be turn off by the cottage cheese because their texture is somewhat similar to our usual tofu. You can also order naan (from $2.40) to complement the set. Handmade using traditional tandoori oven, choose from plain naan, butter naan, garlic naan, cheese naam, sesame naan, cheese & garlic naan, naan kulcha or cashmiri naan.
If you love briyani, you MUST try them because they are immense favourites amongst many foodies. Briyani menu (starts from $9.60) includes vegetable, mutton, chicken, and fish. They also have vindaloos and masala fish/chicken. Prices here are really affordable!
Thai food is rich in Thailand’s food needs little introduction. Prepared by a Thai chef, its profusion of exotic flavours and fragrances makes it my favourite cuisine in the menu.
For lunch, choose from 1 Main and you get 1 dessert (coconut ice cream) FREE! Prepared by Thai chef, be prepared for real authentic Thai flavours such as Tom Yum Soup with rice, Green Curry with rice, Phad Thai or Pattaya Fried Rice. The Tom Yum Soup has bold flavours from lemongrass, chilli, galangal, lime juice and more, giving it a good kick every mouthful. Its spicy and sour taste screams ‘Thailand’!
My favourite Thai dish Phad Thai is best paired with MACHO 1 Litre option of any of the draft beers – Carlsberg, Kronenbourg 1664 lager, Kronenbourg Blanc or Asahi Super Dry Black. Thin noodles are tossed in a hot wok with crunchy beansprouts and eggs to get that smokiness in every strand. I like it that we can add any accompanying condiments as we wish – sugar, chilli powder and finely ground peanuts.
Always strong in western cuisine, be pampered by the whole menu of pasta, burgers, tapas and mains – all great with alcohol. Bar Bar Black Sheep’s newly launched Black Sheep beers is also available here. Brewed in the award winning Black Sheep Brewery in Yorkshire, England, their selection kicks off with the rich, delicious Black Sheep Ale, as well as the very popular Golden Sheep Ale. The Golden Sheep one is really nice, and Bar Bar Black Sheep is the only one in Singapore to carry this (together with Black Sheep Ale).
Every day, Bar Bar Black Sheep comes with a daily special. On our day of visit, they had Carbonara tossed with egg, crisp bacon and loads of Parmesan. It was a revelation. The backbone of the sauce remains eggs and Parmesan, it is still rich — and quite delicious.
If you like pasta, they also have Prawn Aglio Olio ($14.90), Seafood Marinara ($14.90), Squid Ink Pasta with Seafood ($15.90), Crab Meat in Arrabbiata Pasta ($15.90).
One of my earliest memories with Bar Bar Black Sheep is to have their gourmet burgers in Cherry Avenue. Now, when I am back here to have their burgers, it brought back so much good memories. The Smokin Hot Chicken Burger is very simple but comes with juicy grilled chicken thigh burger with tangy BBQ sauce. Of course, this works well with beer anytime of the day.
Other burger options in the a la carte menu includes Deluxe Club Burger ($16.90), Savour Cheeseburger ($13.90), Blue Cheese Burger ($15.90) Rendang Spicy Beef Burger ($13.90) and Vegetarian Om Burger ($11.90).
Lightness is not usually associated with enchiladas, the most comforting of Mexican tortilla foods. But these enchiladas, filled with a mix of tomato salsa, succulent diced chicken and covered with cheese, are both light and incredibly satisfying.
Only at Cluny Court outlet, Cluny’s Cider ($16) is a sexy red cocktail made from a refreshing combination of mint, citron fort, rekorderlig, strawberry lime, lychee liquer and lime.
Courting Danger ($16), on the other hand, is a blue cocktail with Belvedere, Blue Curacao, Elderflower and lemonade. Because of their refreshing concoction, both cocktails work well with most of the western dishes.
Whenever you dine at Bar Bar Black Sheep, it is always recommended for you to pair your meal with a glass of cocktail or beer. Bar Bar Black Sheep carries beers from more than 13 countries around the world – how many have you tried? Or, go for the Tinhill Margarita ($17) – a perfect mixture of tequila, fresh passion fruit, agave nectar and sugar rim. Blended with ice and sweetened up, this frozen margarita is relief in a glass on a hot summer day.
All draft at $7 nett, 7 days a week till 7pm.
