Bakalaki Greek Taverna at Martin Road (new location)

Bakalaki Greek Taverna Martin Road is the new address of this popular Greek restaurant. It is much larger than its previous Tiong Bahru home, but it looks like they have no problem filling it up. Even on a weekday.

The New Greek Restaurant at River Valley

The new Bakalaki Greek Taverna’s location used to be the space which housed the PS Cafe Martin Road outlet. But they have transformed it beyond recognition. Perhaps they have taken more space, but this new Greek restaurant at Martin Road is very spacious. There are different pockets of space with different personalities. The nicest area is the front side fronting Martin Road (picture below). With very high glass windows letting in lots of natural light, this place feels modern and airy.

Wandering deeper inside the restaurant, we discover an even larger space. This is like a huge dining hall which can hold a big event like a Greek wedding perhaps. This area has a more cosy feeling, quite reminiscent of the old Bakalaki restaurant at Tiong Bahru.

The Bakalaki Greek Taverna menu is extensive. Here are some sample pictures of the menu and a page from the Bakalaki wine list.

Our Simple Greek Lunch

Some nicely toasted bread was served soon after we placed our orders. Like Blu Kouzina, Greek restaurants in Singapore seem to use good olive oil. The fragrance from the oil can make the plainest bread a treat.

There are a few choices of fried and grilled cheese on the Bakalaki menu. We selected the grilled Halloumi cheese ($17.90). Grilled cheese is not a common dish but works well as an appetiser. The cheese is very mild – in fact it reminded us of firm tofu (tau kwa). Together with the herbs and a squeeze of lemon, it is a refreshing snack.

Our other Greek appetiser, meatballs with mint and lemon ($18.90), was more substantial. This would be a good finger food to eat with some cold beer.


The final dish of our simple Greek lunch was moussaka ($27.90). This is a dish we tend to order every time we visit a Greek restaurant. A baked casserole of minced beef, eggplant, potato and béchamel sauce, this was very well executed by the Bakalaki folks. This rather big dish, together with the two appetisers, was more than adequate for a simple weekday lunch.
