Buddy Hoagies Rendezvous

The homegrown restaurant chain offering affordable and quality Western cuisine has over the years set up outlets in suburban and heartland malls – such as Bukit Timah Shopping Centre, Waterpoint, Djitsun Mall and Eastpoint Mall. In mid 2022 Buddy Hoagies Cafe & Grill opened its first downtown outlet in Rendezvous Hotel Bras Basah Road (where the famous nasi padang restaurant Rendezvous Restaurant Hock Lock Kee was originally located).

Buddy Hoagies Rendezvous Hotel

Buddy Hoagies Rendezvous is a casual diner with a look that is a cross between Hard Rock Cafe and Mcdonald’s. It is colourful and has interesting posters and memorabilia on its walls. There is a relaxed atmosphere.

Affordable Set Meals

The menu is quite extensive. There are chicken, fish, steaks, pork and lamb prepared in a variety of styles. Pasta, pizza, sandwiches, baked rice and rosti are also available. Desserts will include Lava Souffle and Brownie & Ice Cream. The selection of beverages includes coffee, floats, beer and wine.

The online menu is on the Buddy Hoafies’ Website. A few random pages of the menu are below.

When you order a main you can pay $4.50 more to make it a set meal – which will include soup and a beverage.

Currently, there is a weekday lunch deal (available from 11 am to 4 pm) where you order any main (starting from $10.90) and you will be given the set meal without additional charge.

Affordable Meal

We ordered the Flamed Grilled Chicken ($10.90) with a $4.50 add on for the set meal (with mushroom soup and coffee). We also ordered the Fish & Chips ($11.50) and Rosti Bacon & BBQ Sausage ($12.90).

Buddy Hoagies - Soup & Garlic Bread

The mushroom soup and garlic bread were about what we expected – not bad at all.

The Flamed Grilled Chicken order allowed us to pick two sides. We opted for fries and coleslaw. The thin fries were nicely done – crispy with soft inside, and not oily. The grilled chicken looked tasty and it was. It was well-seasoned and had the unique flavour from the grilling process.

Fish & Chips

We had boiled vegetables as the sides for the Fish & Chips. The breaded dory fillet was fairly standard fare. It did not disappoint tastewise.

Buddy Hoagies Rosti

We really liked the Rosti Bacon & BBQ Sausage, and not just because we would usually love anything with crispy bacon and smokey sausages. The Rosti, a Swiss dish of potatoes fried in a pan, was good. The golden-brown crust was very crispy and the yellow insides were soft and fluffy. It was delicious on its own and made even more enjoyable with the brown sauce.
