Havelock II may not be a building people would ordinary head to, but there are credible restaurants and café there such as Daejon House, Thai Kha Thai Street Cuisine, Genesis Vegan Restaurant, Haritts Donuts & Coffee, Abbie’s Coffeehouse, and BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers which went viral for their brownies.

Brew’ Kopibar is the newest kid in the block, a venture of 3 buddies who used to work in the CBD area; and are kopi-lover by day and craft beer fanatic by night themselves.

The premise of this shop is simple – coffee in the day and beer at night for those looking for their liquid solutions.

Conceptualised with the objective of “Simple. Local. Easy”, the owners kept the décor uncomplicated, a simple space for customers to enjoy the best of both worlds.

They serve up traditional beverages in the morning such as Kopi, Teh, Milo, Yuan Yang, and even a Kopi Milo combination; complemented by a menu of familiar home favorites such as paus, kaya butter toasts and soft-boiled eggs.

The signature Kopi ($1.90 for hot, $2.30 for iced) is brewed using premium coffee powder made from 100% roasted arabica.

The robusta beans is blended at a special ratio and pulled from a long-spouted pot – local style.

It was a not-bad, aromatic cup of coffee, better than what some of the chain-stores offer.

Pau varieties include Big Pork Bao ($1.80), Big Chicken Bao ($1.80), Stew Pork Bao ($1.80), Lotus Bao ($0.90), Char Siew Bao ($1.00), Red Bean Bao ($0.90), along with Glutinous Chicken Rice ($2.00) and Char Siew Fan Choy ($2.20).

While the Red Bean Bao I had was not quite a Mdm Ling, it was decent, fluffy, and not overly sweet.

On the other spectrum, they serve a range of international craft beers from local, and taps include 3 home-stays and 3 rotating ones to keep things more varied.

Currently, they are running opening promotion at $12 per pint for Brewlander – Love, Hitachino Nest – White Ale and Brewdog – Lost Lager.

To complement the beers, they also serve daily special bar bites such as Chicken Wings, Nuggets and Edamame ranging from $5 to $8.

Simple, fuss-free, and affordable place, with no additional GST or service charge.
