Renovated with travel theme, this place makes you feel the warmth of a home once you enter it. They have also transformed a corner into a cozy room which is ideal for group get-together to watch your favourite sport matches.
Good news to all fanatics. No more worries when hunger strikes halfway through the match, Harry's now serves delectable stomach filling dishes under their new menu. "Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer" For this food tasting, we were treated to 10 items from their new menu which consists of 3 small plates, 1 platter, 2 big plates, 1 dessert and 3 alcoholic drinks.
Fish Cracklings (S$13)
The eel fish skin is so thin and crispy that it really goes "crackling" on every bite. Served with aioli (garlic mayo) for those who doesn't like it plain. As for me, I prefer to eat it on its own as the spice mix that is sprinkled on it already gives enough flavour to this.
Harry's Signature Wings (S$13 for 6pcs, S$19 for 10pcs)
Crispy wings dressed in a secret spice, is considered spicy enough on its own for those who can't take spicy stuff like me. Go with their popular special formulated chilli jam that taste like sambal chilli to level up the spiciness of the wings.
Crab & Potato Cakes (S$19 for 6pcs)
Shredded blue swimmer crabmeat mixed with mashed potato, this really have the strong "crabby" taste. Though its fried till golden brown, it doesn't feel oily at all. Have it with the Sriracha tomato dip to enhance the flavour.
Harry's Premium Lager (S$13)
Perfect pair with small plates. Being not a beer fan, I didn't ask for a glass as I do not want it to go to waste. Well, I guess I have missed something good.
Jalapeño Steak Sliders (S$13)
Semi tender grilled steak topped with charred bell peppers and jalapeño cheese sauce. Bell peppers give these bite-sized burgers a tinge of heat yet not too spicy. A little disappointing as this taste quite normal with no surprise factors.
Chicken Masala (S$23)
Was quite surprised to find this here as I was in the impression that only western-styled dishes are served here. Tender chicken chunks in rich spiced gravy served with toasted charcoal bread, this is indeed flavourful. Rather amazed by the bread as it really looks like blocks of charcoal.
Crabmeat Spaghettini (S$23)
This tomato based spaghetti may taste a little monotonous for some but I find it perfectly complements the fresh crabmeat. The simplicity of the tomato sauce enables you to taste the freshness of the handpicked crabmeat which I was lucky enough to have eaten some crabmeat chunks. A not so fanciful dish that brings out the best flavour of the ingredients.
Dirty Harry (S$16)
Enjoy a glass of their signature cocktail of vodka built with brown sugar and lychee liqueur with the big plates. Fruity taste with very high liquor content (at least its high for me), a pity I have to control my intake as I can't hold my liquor well.
Toffee Apple Crisp Tart (S$14)
Thin sliced apples on a pastry crust drizzled with salted caramel and served with vanilla ice cream. One of my dining partner commented that its too sweet but I find the sweetness acceptable. The letdown of this is the crust which is not crispy making it a little difficult to cut. Sweet dessert with a tinge of saltiness makes this different from the rest.
Fruity dessert wine with 12% alcohol. Sweet and refreshing, definitely suitable for people who can't take alcoholic drinks. You can bottoms up this without having to worry of getting drunk. "I used to think drinking was bad for me...so I gave up thinking" ~ Harry's
