Finally checked out OKB (Our Kind of Bakery / One Kampung Bahru)! Disclaimer: it was opened by my talented friend Jeremy Cheok, but this review is IMPARTIAL!!
Anyways, here it is! A cosy little nook off Kampung Bahru. We came in a group of 6 and had a bit of trouble getting a table. Looks like they cater to small groups of max 4 – the seating area isn’t very big; in fact the kitchen takes up most of the floor space!
Cameron had this half wrap (omelette?) – $5
Asian Roasted Veggies – $8
Another so-so dish, but I like daikon and it’s loaded with it so. I liked this.
Roast Pork Belly, $20
What we came for, but sadly, was just an okay dish – skin was nice and crispy, fats melted in your mouth, but that’s kind of everything you expect from sio bak right?
Roast Beef, $21
Well worth it, the cut was great, the sauce was a good balance between tangy and sweet, onions were a little spicy which cut through all the rich flavour. Meat was perfectly done. Everyone agreed that this was the star of the meal. (Until we had dessert.)
Belacan Midjoints – $10
Small in size, but packs quite a punch. Appreciated that the belacan wasn’t too overpowering. Skin was crispy, meat was tender.
Shepherd’s Pie – $10
Kind of expected a traditional shepherd’s pie, this one surprised me because it had 3 meatballs inside. Not a bad thing, not a bad thing. The sweet potato mash was a nice touch.
Sticky Date Pudding, $9
Peanut Butter Cupcake, $3
I don’t remember what this was called, but it was like a soft cookie filled with chocolate bits, $3.50
Lemon Cream Tart, $3.50
If you’re a cupcake person I’d really recommend their cupcakes!!! It made all of us make very strange sounds (of pleasure). In general, the deserts really won me over and outshone the tapas dishes. Oh but that beef dish was goood. Gogogo. I’d like to return for their brunch one day.
