Many are familiar with Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar for fresh bakery offering, all-day-breakfast and hearty cakes. Their revamped dinner menu presents quite a wide selection of starters, entrees, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, pasta and mains.
This is also one of those bistros that start its dinner menu at an unconventional time of 4pm, just in case you get hungry earlier in the day.
With a last order time of 10:30pm and closing at 11:00pm, we now know another option for supper, drinks and beer on tap.
Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar nestled in the Tanglin Post Office building, has quite a vibrant energy every time I visit. It’s like everybody feels happy here. No kidding.
If you are a DBS or POSB card holder, there are more reasons to come … 1 for 1 Main Course! This applies to the sandwiches, entrees and pastas.
This is a really good deal.
My personal recommendation for sandwich is the Po’Boy Sandwich ($21) where by the grilled shrimp added a taste of sweet-saltiness along with honey baked ham in a sundried tomato cheese focaccia.
A regular favourite since the beginning of the bakery is the Hot Reuben ($18) – corned beef with melted Emmental (a type of yellow medium hard cheese), sauerkraut (sour cabbage), onions and Russian dressing on their signature Asahi Kuronama beer bread.
The new addition to the sandwich menu in the DIY Steak Sandwich ($22), both fun to eat and great for sharing.
What you get is a similar to a ‘deconstructed sandwich’ – tender US Angus ribeye steak served with grilled balsamic onions on lightly toasted ciabatta. You decide how much meat and carb you want, best for people who find eating a whole sandwich too filling and messy.
The 1-for-1 also applies to appetizing sounding mains such as Peppercorn Steak with Fries ($43), Salmon with Sweet Potato & Beet Chips ($24), Steak and Eggs ($23), Mac and Cheese ($18), and Cheddar Cheese Bacon Waffles ($19) which is the ultimate guilt, or pleasure. Depends on how you look at it.
We ordered the Rosemary Lamb Chops with Polenta Cubes ($39) and Nassim Hill Double Decker Burger ($21). No regrets for both.
The former had an irresistible aroma, and the lamb was to our surprise quite moist and tender.
For some restaurants, burgers bun would not come across significantly. I have to give credit to Nassim Hill whose sesame buns are evenly and lightly toasted with a fluffy texture, complementing the succulence of the beef patty in the burger.
Their Chili Crab Pasta ($25, $16 for half portion) was one where al dente spaghetti was almost covered generous portions of jumbo lump crab meat sautéed with an addictive tangy, not too spicy chilli crab sauce. Simply lovely.
Nassim Hill is the kind of place where you gather with good friends and colleagues over good food, cakes and a range of drinks – from aged whisky to apple cider on tap. The promotion and affordable pricing make it even harder to resist.
