Harry’s Bar at MapleTree Business City

There isn’t all that much to eat at the MapleTree Business City where my office is located. The opening of the Labrador Park Circle Line Station doesn’t really help because it’s at least a 10 minute walk away and if you include the time taken for the return journey plus the train ride itself, you soon realise why venturing out is not for the faint hearted.

We are all quite looking forward to the opening of the Alexandra Retail Centre (ARC) next to the PSA building. At least there will be a few more restaurants to choose from, and McDonalds! But I can tell you, no matter how many restaurants sprout up around this area, it’s never going to be enough, because that’s just how the human mind works. You want to know you have choice, even if you don’t ever exercise the choice.

For now, if we don’t want to leave MBC, we have a grand total of 3 restaurants to choose from: Crystal Jade, Astons Specialities and Harry’s Bar. Other non-food court options would be Cedele, FoodBarn, Starbucks, Subway and Killiney. You could make a lot of money if you opened up an eatery here. You would have a captive audience!

Anyway…

When we feel like we need a bit of cheering up, we head to Harry’s Bar. No we don’t go for the drinks, we go there for lunch. I have to say, the food there is surprisingly good. One doesn’t normally associate a bar with good food, but Harry’s strives to be different. It’s not greasy pub grub you get here, although of course you could if you chose the deep fried items.

All of us like the Harry’s All Day Breakfast. It costs only $14 and comes with back bacon, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, baked beans and egg. The food tastes fresh and isn’t too oily. You can choose to have pork sausage or chicken sausage. The crusty bread goes very well with the breakfast.

Harry's - Fish and Chips

Fish and Chips $16 – Also one of their signature dishes and I’ve tried it twice already. The fish is usually of a substantial size. It moist, flaky and very fresh tasting. The fries are also pretty good too, the crunchy type that I like.

For a healthier option, you can go for the Atlantic Salmon baked in a packet $16 – Not sure how this tastes but my colleague who tried this had no complaints.

I like going to Harry’s at MBC for lunch. Going to Harry’s for dinner however is a totally different thing. It usually means I have to stay back late in the office and that sucks!

KPO – Killiney Post Office cafe bar

I don’t know who came up with the name KPO, but that person sure is a smart fella. KPO, if you don’t already know, is a cafe and bar situated at the Killiney Post Office building (yes the post office is still operational!). KPO = Killiney Post Office, what’s so smart about that you say. Well, how’s this? KPO is also happens to be situated on the corner of Killiney Road, Penang Road and Orchard Road. Now is that cool or what??? Word plays turn me on….ahem…moving along…

After my huge 8 eatery Gastromania Feast at Far East Square, I still managed to wobble to Orchard Road to meet up with my JC mates. Not only did I continue to have a drink at Oriole Cafe, I managed to down some Vietnamese beef pho at Killiney Road, and still have space for a peach Bellini at KPO. Nearly 10 hours of feasting…phew!

KPO Peach Bellini

Here’s the peach bellini I had for $22. Didn’t taste of peach at all. A little disappointing actually.

KPO unidentified drink

Here’s what one of my friends had. Didn’t manage to take down the name.

Exterior seating area

KPO looks cool huh, especially at night. Took this picture off http://www.imaginings.com.sg/, which owns KPO as well as Balaclava and Wala Wala. Taken from this angle, I can’t even recognise this as a place in Singapore!

KPO (2)

There is indoor seating as well as outdoor. This was taken from the 2nd floor outdoor seating area.

See the Singapore Post sign?

KPO Cooked Food Combo

It seems that they serve cooked meals as well. Didn’t get to try any out for obvious reasons. Maybe next time.
