Wok & Barrel Redux + Make Mee Great Again VII, 14 September 2019

I opened The Wok and Barrel in 2011 and it was my first proper restaurant after my start in F&B as a hawker. It was a tiny little 30 seater at 13 Duxton Hill which had Nasi Lemak on the menu and a bunch of other crazy dishes that I liked to eat i.e. Ba Chor Mee Pasta, Beef Rendang Pizza.

We had a good run but I closed The Wok & Barrel in 2013. This menu is for all the Wok & Barrel fans, I will serve up all the signature dishes of Wok & Barrel (basically the entire menu), desserts included which means that there are 15 courses of lemak mod sin goodness.

Thanks to Cecil Hamilton, I added the Banana Crack Parfait to the menu so please come hungry and prepare to be stuffed!
