Buzz In The Woods – Western Food And Weekend BBQ Surrounded By Lush Greenery, At Phoenix Park Tanglin Road
Buzz In The Woods has replaced Coyote at Phoenix Park, 320 Tanglin Road. I feel that the entire space is perhaps under-utilised, or more correctly said, too under the radar.
There is potential for the eateries here to do well, noting local diners penchant for restaurants surrounded by greenery. Take a look at Dempsey, The [email protected] Aerospace Park.
This new bistro and bar offers a variety western cuisine, local fare, as well as weekend BBQ brunch.
Appetisers offered included German Sausage Platter ($28), Buzz Cheese & Parma Ham Platter ($26), Baked Brie with Syrup and Thyme ($20), and Old-School Chicken Liver Parfait ($20).
As for the mains, some of the selections offered were Buzz Special Ribeye Steak ($35), Fish In The Bag ($30), Rosemary Lamb Rack ($30), Bacon Ranch Chicken ($25), Asian Salmon Steak ($25), Grilled Pork Chop ($23), Seafood Spaghetti Aglio Olio ($23) and Angel Hair Pasta with Truffle Oil ($20).
Do note that the menu is subject to changes and the restaurant is still considered relatively new.
I had ‘difficulty’ ordering because I didn’t get a sense what the specialities of the restaurant would, and prices weren’t exactly welcoming. Perhaps they have confidence that the Tanglin crowd were more willing to spend on dining.
For starters, I ordered a Cream of Mushroom Soup ($8) which turned out to be disappointedly shallow. Also I would have preferred if there was a more rustic taste.
To be fair, the Grilled Pork Chop ($23) in garlic and herbs was decent – tender and moderately juicy, well marinated.
However, I wasn’t sure about the plating (no offence, but it seemed rather ‘Hans’ for the price being paid) and the portion.
The ambience around was welcoming, and it was cooling to dine surrounded by lush greenery. I noted that Buzz In The Woods is both kids-friendly and pets-friendly, and featured an outdoor patio and small play area.
