In 2014, Aussie Chef Darren Farr started The Lokal, an Australian Restaurant-Bar, providing customers with honest house-made comfort food — including butter, sauces, pickles & meats all made on site with good produce. Our name is German for local, an influence that be explained by its proximity to Goethe-Institut Singapore and is also reflective of our diverse and worldly approach towards food that can be enjoyed by the people in Singapore.
In the day, he serves up healthy and hearty brunches like Smashed Avocado with Ricotta, Roasted Pumpkin Salad, and Steak & Eggs, but slowly transits into a cozy and versatile space for intimate dinners & casual cocktails sessions with comfort food by German Head Chef Max Strauch such as Grilled Pork Chops, Tasmanian Grass Fed Steak Frites and Catch of the Day. Aside from the normal menus, both Chef Darren & Max also prepare Daily Specials with fresh seasonal produce.
The bar features a stellar collection of Australian & Austrian wines, monthly beer specials and easy drinking cocktails with a Lokal touch - all pairing perfectly with our food.
