Wall Street Bar

We saw no stockbrokers & hedge fund managers at this Solaris Dutamas hangout, but it's nevertheless a bustling bar that seems to secure bullish business.

Nothing uncommon on the menu here, but we loved the fresh-tasting curry puffs, brimming with boiled eggs & potatoes.

Samosas stuffed with cheese & spinach, superbly executed. Crisp on the outside, comfortingly warm & mushy within, without a trace of excess grease.

Beef sausages with Holland onions & cili padi. A spicy wallop to wake our taste buds.

More pub grub: battered squid, a deep-fried delight, long after dusk had fallen.

Everybody on every table was guzzling beer _ except us. But how could we resist the sweet satisfaction of the Strawberry Margarita & Lychee Martini, no matter how non-masculine they look?

Peach Margarita & Fantasy Island (with the cute cocktail umbrella, hurray!).

  1. Cheese and spinach samosas look awesome. Haven't had good ones for quite some months...the Bankers Club seems to have stopped serving them for our breakfast meetings.

    Lychee martinis and margeritas are brilliant drinks. Refreshing and flavourful!

  2. missyblurkit: whoa, samosas at the bankers club sound like a good way to snack while working! but ya, i rarely order samosas, cos they usually turn out disappointing. and yeah, it's a real pleasure to kick back and enjoy a margarita after office hours! :D

  15. Try fusing languages when you are travelling - would probably confuse and confound more than anything! :P

  16. Kenny: that's why you gotta ask the people you meet during your travels whether they can parlez vous italianese/germanese/japanese :D

  17. they should have at least put up a tv with the stock prices. It may attract financialists.

  18. eiling: heheh, yeah, that would be quite an appropriate theme with the name of the bar! but maybe distracting for some people while they're trying to drink, chat and relax, heheh :D
