The Bank Bar is flanked by glass walls and located in the very heart of the Central Business District (CBD). It is a premium bistro and bar set in a chic, lofty and spacious ambience, tending to executives types for meals, discussions or unwinding.
The Bank Bar is furnished beautifully in a modern European decor, making patrons feel right at home immediately in the cushy couches and cosy elegance. *Kelly and I decided to meet up here for lunch on a Friday afternoon.
Drinks were served first, both of us settling on these beautiful glasses of Virgin Margaritas (SGD$10.50 each); she had the Lime one while I had my Strawberry drink. The delicious, refreshing drinks tasted just as delicious without the slosh of tequila. Somehow, the lime margarita was more watery / melted faster than mine.
For food, *Kelly decided to go with the The Bank Caesar Salad with Smoked Salmon (SGD$20.50) with romaine lettuce, crispy bacon bites, poached egg, parmesan and black pepper breadstick with citrus Caesar dressing. It was crisp and tasty, a light and healthy dish perfect for lunch. The use of poached egg in lieu of hard-boiled eggs allowed the salad an extra velvety coating of pierced egg yolk.
I had the Homemade Beef Pie (SGD$14.00) consisting of a puffy crust containing very generous chunks of beef, which was a delightful surprise. The succulent pieces of beef were juicy and marinated deliciously. It was an absolute delight to find so many pieces of big beef chunks in the pie, and the fries on the side were crispy.
We shared a dessert because it sounded irresistable - the Baked Marshmallow (SGD$14.00) with berry compote, sour cream and chocolate ice-cream. It was so gorgeous we could not contain our excitement. I mean, marshmallows are lovely eaten roasted, on their own or with fondue; but baked marshmallow?
It was sticky, sweet and chewy, disintegrating lusciously in the mouth. Paired with the creamy chocolate ice-cream and tarty fruits, this was one of the best desserts I have ever eaten. The only drawback was that it was a little messy to eat, we had to twirl and twirl like malt candy. But it was all worth it; I could have eaten an entire one by myself.
