Being a non clubber, I have not visited St James Power Station for over 2 years. Food Republic Beer Garden was a totally unfamiliar name for me. Apparently, some 929 sq ft of St James carpark space was craved out to create a 400 seater open-air hawker enclave a year ago.
With St James Power Station in the backdrop, this hawker joint offers a nostalgic 60s street hawker theme concept to both local and tourist diners with 18 rustic-style pushcarts, truck stalls and kiosks selling all time Singapore favorites which I was about to taste in a while. Slurp!
You know they definitely did their homework when the great grand ancestor of world renowned 'Tiger Beer' by Malayan Breweries was showcased at their Street Bar. Operating behind an disused Tiger Beer Truck, this bar can conjures up 6 different beers on tap, international wines, champagnes and even Singapore's most beloved cocktail - The Singapore Sling to go with your meals!
White Rojak ($7, Large Portion) from Aunty Jessie Rojak was the first to come on the dining table. This supposely healthier version of rojak was pleasing to the eye with the inclusion of strawberries. Innovation & aesthetics aside, I did not really find it amazing.
