Huber’s Bistro takes up a small part of the large complex that makes up Huber’s Butchery & Bistro which is now located further down the road (nearer Holland Road) at 22 Dempsey Road. The place was larger than we had expected. As you can see from the above picture, the entrance looks like the foyer of a mini airport, with the wide open spaces, equipped with ramps and trolleys.
There is a large open space in front of Huber’s Bistro. Most of the internal space is taken up by the butchery which has grown into a small supermarket that sells more than just meats. We will show you some pictures at the end of this post. We turn to the more important business of our meal at Huber’s Bistro.
Relative to the scale of the entire complex and the butchery, the Huber’s Bistro is a modest eatery. There are some outdoor sheltered tables which are definitely the better places if the weather is not too hot. The air-conditioned indoor space is small and simply furnished. The decor has some resemblance to an American diner. The food menu is a straightforward two page affair. Here are pictures of the food and drinks menus.
There is a list of daily specials on a small chalkboard but it was hard to decipher the handwriting. See if you can make out the Daily Specials.
We ordered the Original Veal Sausage ($13.80), Braised Grain-fed Bone-in Short Ribs ($17) and Huber’s Beef Birger with Bacon and Gruyere Cheese ($15.50). We tried two types of beer – a Schneider Weiss ($12.60 per pint) and another draft beer the name of which I can’t remember ($12 per pint).
The veal sausage was good. It was served with onion sauce and some spatzli (which according to our internet research means soft egg noodle found in some European places such as Switzerland and German) that was very plain.
The braised short rib was a single big rib that had a lot of meat on it. It was more than enough for one person even without including the accompanying mashed potatoes. The taste of the meat and sauce was however not as robust as the dark colour suggested. We would have preferred a stronger braised dark sauce taste.
The beef burger was a simple common dish that lived up to expectations. This will be a dish that we would be happy to order again.
There was an interesting beer selection at Huber’s Bistro. The two we selected were enjoyable. The tall one, Schneider Weisse, was the usual fruity German beer kind of taste. The other one had a slight bitter after taste that appeals to some of us. Overall, we had mixed feelings about the food at Huber’s Bistro. The beer however received universal approval.
Now we show you some pictures of the Butchery section of Huber’s Butchery and Bistro.
