Bark! Bark!

Lauded for its excellent ambience in the east and away from the hustle and bustling city lives, the Bark Cafe is a definite choice to romance your date. We marked this place as our last stop before heading back to the west and called it a day.

As we approached the shelter after parking the car, the neon lighted signage of The Bark Cafe's led us to the entrance.

We came to the counter stand where it showed "Please Wait to be Seated" and started browsing through its menu which was placed on the stand. After flipping repeatedly through the menu, there was still no one attending to us, we decided to walked into the cafe ourselves.

As we walked into the cafe, the servers then noticed us and gave us a warm welcome with a free selection of seatings. We had the same magazine looking menu on our tables.

Ordered a jug of cranberry juice instead of having each a cup as we find it more economical to share this way. Servers are rather prompt in refilling our cups with the jar from time to time.
Cost: S$12.00 / Jug or S$4.50 / Glass

The pool table is located just beside our dining table. Customers can pay a sum and get to enjoy a pool game whilst waiting for their meal.

Seafood like the "Sotong" (Squid) is delicately cute to a pleasing appearance, a bite of it simple discloses its chewy and Q tasting feeling.

Many of the hawker who prepared the the Hor Fun nowadays had actually forgotten that this is the most important area that makes a plate of Hor Fun Stands up but the bark cafe did it! Enjoy the charred smell of every mouthful of Hor Fun Tossed in the great tasting egg sauce essence. Yums!

Bark's Cafe Speciality Chicken is also voted one of the must tries dishes. Similar to our local "Har Cheong Kai" (Prawn Paste Chicken), it goes best even without any sauce. Be prepared to move your 10 fingers as they are pipping hot and finger licking good!
Cost: 3 Pieces - S$8.90
6 Pieces - S$15.90

I did try the song dedication and when asked, this is only applicable on their live band nights during Monday and Tuesday.

Overall, their service is good and they will come changing our dirty plates in exchange for a new one. I will recommend this place especially you just want to laid back and have a relaxing weekend meal.

Recommendations
(1) For those who are mosquito-proned like me, equipped yourself with some mosquito repellent before dining.
(2) Located beside the Changi Chapel & Museum, the carparks lots are rather limited, be early to avoid disappointment.
(3) A very good place to throw your events.
