Dinner @ Bakalaki Greek Taverna

July 17, 2017 in Greek by thywhaleliciousfay

So while Bakalaki Greek Taverna is not halal-certified restaurant, my colleagues and I headed down for dinner as we called and verified the kitchen was halal. Muslim colleagues, you see. =) So yup, the sole reason why the restaurant was not halal-certified was because they sold alcohol.

My colleagues and I arrived at 7.30pm. Thankfully there’s a gantry carpark just beside the building which allowed us to find a parking lot easily.

And from the menu (pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), we ordered:-

1) Pita bread, $2.90 (above) – Greek style flat bread with sea salt & oregano. And what’s pictured is 2 portions.

2) Patates tiganites, $9.90 (above) – Homemade fried potatoes, topped with graviera cheese.

3) Kalamari tiganito, $22.90 (above) – Crispy fried squid with lemon.

4) Bakaliaro with skordalia, $9.90 (above) – Pan fried cod served with garlic chip.

5) Feta saganaki, $16.90 (above) – Pan fried feta cheese dressed with honey & sesame.

6) Kalamaki merida (chicken), $23.90 (above) – Grilled skewers (2) served with tomato, onion, tzatziki & pita bread.

7) Kalamaki merida (chicken yiro), $23.90 (above) – Grilled skewers (2) served with tomato, onion, tzatziki & pita bread.


8) Tsipoura, $43.90 (above) – 400gram – Grilled sea bream served with lemon sauce & boiled vegetables.

9) Loukoumades, $14.90 (above) – Traditional Greek doughnuts with honey, cinnamon & side chocolate sauce.

10) Yiaourti, $12.90 (above) – Greek yoghurt with honey & walnuts.

11) Rizogalo, $11.90 (above) – Creamy rice pudding with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top.

12) Baklava, $14.90 (above) – Filo pastry stuffed with walnuts, cinnamon, cloves & Greek honey syrup. This was sweet. Super sweet. Even though we came in a big group of 7, finishing just 1 piece took us much difficulty.

We liked that the space was big and spacious; Very ideal for big groups. But I didn’t enjoy the food. Most were just passable. Or was it our bad choice in the dishes? Hmm.

Would I recommend Bakalaki Greek Taverna? Probably not. Noting that it’s also coming from a diner (me) who hasn’t travelled to Greece to try the true Greek cuisine. My exposure to Greek cuisine is limited to what I had at other Greek restaurants in Singapore.
