The Bridge Bistro & Beacon Bar @ RSYC

I have been to the Republic Of Singapore Yacht Club several times for karaoke and drinks but it was usually late at night, after The Bridge Bistro & Beacon Bar were closed for business. Last November, I had the chance to savour, no, devour is more likely, their substantial fare.

Traditional Beer Battered Fish & Chips – SG$16.80

The river cobbler (or bassa to us, in Melbourne) was not seasoned at all. The fillet was dipped into the restaurant-made beer batter recipe and deep-fried till golden. The crunchy outside and tender soft inside was well maintained throughout the meal. Steven can’t believe that an unseasoned fish in light craft beer batter can taste very yummy with just a squirt of lemon juice when I suggested that but I think he enjoyed malt vinegar mixed into tartar sauce better.

Republic Of Singapore Yacht Club

With a commanding view of the marina, the alfresco Beacon Bar offers members of the yacht club and guests (open to public) the perfect venue to unwind after a hard day’s work.

Verdict time!!!

I have often quoted “Life is short, eat dessert first” but for my future visits here, I skip the frills and get right down to the business. You can indulge all you want with the mains because you won’t be needing much sweets afterwards. The desserts were pretty standard, nothing to shout about in my humble book, same goes for the soup and avocado salad.

The Chicken with Mango Salad, however, is a different story. Lean white protein and citrusy salad with fresh mango (everybody loves mango, except me, hehehe…) is the formula to a healthy diner’s wallet and this dish, not surprisingly, is a big hit with the white collar ladies during lunch hour on weekdays!

While the Prawn Aglio Olio was good, I felt that the Spaghetti Carbonara was way ahead of its peer! The rich velvety smoothness of the creamy sauce with smoky bacon, albeit a little on the salty side, was divine. I told Steven I had not touch carbonara for the longest time and this plate justified my falling off the wagon! When the waiter wanted to clear the pasta to make way for other dishes, I slapped his hand.

I was between the devil and the deep blue sea when it came to the fish items. Both were exquisite. Nonetheless, the contrasting preparation style mae it difficult to choose one over the other. The choice really would boil down to one’s personal preference of white/non-white fish, fried/grilled, fries/mash, salad or grilled vegetables.

Steven loved lamb and I think this one was good enough as he cooed over and again how tender the shank was. If you remember, I am sensitive to lamb so I skipped.

Farmer’s Pizza is definitely the one to go for guys! Chow down the thin crusts with succulent meaty country sausages with  crisp ice cold beer on a hot summer’s day and in Singapore, it is everyday! Ladies, don’t shun away from this non skinny pizza – leave your calorie counting diet for another occasion. Take it from the my grapevine, all you need is a Farmer’s and a bottle of Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. This was finger licking good!!!

The Bridge Bistro & Beacon Bar @ RSYC offers modern European cuisines with an Asian twist where diners can be impressed with its unique gastronomic experience from their ala carte and seasonal menus, daily and weekly specials along with popular pub grub and beverage promotions.
