Beer Basket Katong is a new pub for beer but it is one you can bring your kids to for a family meal. It offers brunch during the weekends; and yes you can have brunch with beer.
Beer Basket Katong
With a name like Beer Basket, one may be forgiven for thinking that the place will be dark and dingy. Beer Basket Kitchen & Bar in Katong in fact is brightly lit and airy and looks like a hip contemporary cafe with industrial chic decor.
It has a sitting area out by the public corridor. Inside, the predominantly grey space is punctuated by some green plants and beer bottles with colourful labels
There is a row of chillers with a wide variety of beers. That section of Beer Basket feels more like a supermarket than a pub.
Beer Basket Menu
A wide range of beers is available in Beer Basket Kitchen & Bar. It also has other alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. Below is a picture of the Drinks Menu.
The food menu offers more than just the usual pub food. Interesting dishes like Cha Soba Salad, Korean Chicken Tacos, Moroccan Lamb Burger and Messy Churros Balls are on the menu. Below are pictures of the Food Menu of Beer Basket Kitchen & Bar.
Brunch at Beer Basket
We visited the new Beer Basket Kitchen & Bar recently and ordered Egg Benedict ($16) and Vegetarian Pizza ($18). Order and payment were made at the counter. Food and drinks would be served to the table.
The Egg Benedict was served with crispy bacon, mushroom and some vegetables. It was quite a substantial dish and had everything one would expect of a Egg Benedict in a cafe – nice poached eggs and a good combination of textures and flavours.
The thin crust Vegetarian Pizza was surprisingly good. The crispy crust had a nice fresh out of the oven aroma. The toppings had a good mix of textures. It was a rather delectable pizza.
We did not have beer with our brunch. We had hot coffee, which was good.
Nice Food & Coffee
There was good service by friendly people at Beer Basket. The prices were reasonable. We did not have high expectations of the food and coffee in a beer pub but were pleasantly surprised at Beer Basket Kitchen & Bar in Katong. The brunch dishes were nice and the coffee was good; and, though we didn’t, we could have brunch with beer. Beer Basket Katong will be added to our list of great places for weekend brunch in the East.
