Last Saturday, I’ve travelled all the way to the far east of the island for a relaunch of Kakis Bistro and Bar located next to Changi Village. The exact address is 289 Farnborough Road. You have to turn into the small road after the Indian temple.
I was greeted with an abundance of greenery when I entered Kakis. I am a nature lover and the lush of greenery made me feels at ease and very peaceful. The designer of the place is the same as the one who designed T2 and T3 of Changi Airport!
For Social Media Addicts like me, you have to take note that Kakis do not provide any WIFI as they are encouraging us to put down our phones and talk to each other. I find this notice really cute. 🙂
Live Band is on every Friday and Saturday night from 7.30 pm. We have The Passerby on for the relaunch and I must say that they are pretty good! I love the voice of the female vocalist. The Passerby plays during Friday nights!
On to the food! Kakis served tapas and mains using some ingredients that are homegrown! There’s a farm next door and that’s where some of the ingredients are harvested. First dish of the day is Prawn Alioli with Homegrown Lemongrass & Coriander. The prawns are fresh and succulent. Very appetizing dish.
Stir Fry Button Mushroom with Homegrown Kaffir Leaf, Shallots and White Wine. This dish brings out the original taste of the ingredients. Very organic and fresh and I think will be great with rice. It is tasty but not something that I will order at a Bistro Bar.
Chicken Quesadilla with Homemade Salsa. I like this dish as I find that the salsa is very refreshing and the quesadilla is not too dry.
Fries Addiction with In- House Special Seasoning. This is curry fries which is actually pretty addictive. The fries are thin and crispy, not soggy at all.
My favourite dish of the night! The Aglio Olio with a fusion taste of homegrown kaffir leaf. Big juicy fresh prawns with the pasta done just nice and it is not too oily. The taste of the Kaffir Leaf gives it an Asian twist and the whole dish is very flavourful. Thumbs Up!!
Fish & Chips is ok. The fish is fresh but I find that it is a little dry. The chips are the same fries without the seasoning.
Red Velvet Cake with coconut flakes. The cake is decent, but not one of the better ones I’ve tried.
There’s a make our own Mojito session and the mint leaves used are homegrown. Making a Mojito is pretty easy. All you need are mint leave, lime, brown sugar, soda and rum!
I will say if you are living in the East, this is a place to check out when you are looking for somewhere new to chill out! For those not living in the East, this place will be more accessible if you’re driving. If the weather is good, you get to enjoy the sunset too!
