Old Boys Gallery Tapas Bar & Restaurant Food Tasting

Along the street of Kampong Bahru, one can find this charming and artistic spot that was previously an art gallery. I was being introduced to Old Boys Gallery Tapas Bar & Restaurant, a great place to chill out for a good food and fantastic beer.

Upon entering Old Boys Gallery, I was immediately being attracted to all the fine art pieces that were surrounded the places.

The vibrant colours of the art pieces instantly lifted up my mood. The ambiance made me feel at ease, Old Boys Gallery is a place that you will enjoy with your friends.

Old Boys Gallery has been in operation since 6 months ago. The restaurant is found by a team of three not-so-young (old boys) buddies who share the same passion for the elements of a great chill-out place: food, beer, art. 

Old Boys Gallery is like a mini gallery, bringing Singapore’s burgeoning arts scene to the fore. The art pieces on the wall are for sale.

Can't get enough of the art, especially love the art piece on the wall. 
So beautiful, stop by for photo taking against the wall.

Look at their collection of alcohol available. It's a great idea to collect the empty bottles and displayed them out.

The three old boys went to source for these bottles of brews from Europe, Japan, wherever we can think of. 

After mingling around, it's time for a feast. May the feast began:

Manster Burger (Beef) - $17.90

The burger was stacked with layers and layers of goodness starting from egg, caramelized onions,cheese, beef, bacon, tomato and lettuce, served with fresh greens and fries. This is the hot signature of Old Boys Gallery.

Belly Good Burger - $18.90 (newly added to the menu)

This handmade burger definitely will fill our stomach. 
The ingredients were similar to the Manster Burger.  Belly Good Burger was filled with Japanese style slow braised pork belly with onion rings, pineapple, bacon, cheese and egg, served with fries and greens.

Pork belly and onion ring was a great combination. The pork belly was very tender and juicy while the onion ring was deliciously crispy. One bite of both, you will experience a tender juicy crunch. Deliciously good.

Bak Kwa Risotto - between $10 to $20 (newly added to the menu)

Who would have thought risotto can actually pair with bak kwa?

This creative concept came from our Chinese New Year delicacy, Bak Kwa, specially created for last CNY. The savoury of the bak kwa bring out the flavour of the creamy risotto with a taste of sweetness. Suitable for people who want to opt for something simple and not too heavy.

Spam Chips - $9

Trying this for the first time, deep-fried luncheon meat with wasabi mayo. The luncheon meat was fried until it turned golden brown. You can hear the cripsy crunch with every bite of it. We cleared the plate within minutes, leaving the veggies behind. 

Potato Head - $7.90

How about dipping the sweet potato fries with curry mustard.
This is super addictive, we couldn't stop ourselves from eating. The secret lies in their homemade curry mustard, it further enhanced the flavour of the fries, bringing a different taste out.

Chili Beef Fries - $13.90

Chili beef with kidney beans, fries topped with nacho cheese, mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese. If you like cheesy fries, this is the appetizer you can opt for. 

Form Your Own Triplets - $21

You can select any 3 sides from bits and bites at the price of $21. There are 14 selections that you can mix and match from.

We have Vongole Bianco served with crispy toast, crispy porky and OBG crab cakes.

The vongole bianco was really spicy. When I took the first sip, I think the spiciness was still bearable. But when you swallowed it, that's when the burning sensation kicked in and linger at the throat.

I love the sassy flavour crab cakes with mango relish and the juicy roasted pork.

OBG Wings - $10.90 for 3 pcs / $18 for 6 pcs

Full wings marinated in chef’s legendary sauce. The marinated wings tasted sweet and delicious. The meat was juicy and tender.

Devil's Double Chocolate - $9

Though sinful, but who can resist the chocolate lava cake with ice-cream?
I have a soft spot for dessert, especially ice-cream. I couldn't resist the mouthwatering devil's double chocolate.

Early Grey Cake with Lavender Cream - $7.90

The cake has a refreshing taste with a trace of light early grey and lavender aroma that linger. Suitable for people who prefer not so sweet dessert. The cake was moist and spongy as well.

Coconut Cake - $7.90

This was my favourite dessert, coconut cake with gula melaka.
Gula melaka complemented the overall taste with sweetness added, every bite tasted flavoursome.

With Meryl enjoying our desserts.
Thanks Meryl for the photo.

We have a great dining experience at Old Boys Gallery, I'm sure I will be back for a visit again for the good food. Thanks HP for the invitiation too (:
