It was a Thursday afternoon, met up with Charleen to check out Coq & Balls which is located within walking distance from Tiong Bahru MRT station. Having heard good words about this place, we were looking forward to check out the place. Arriving at 4pm which the bar just opened, we noticed there were a couple of customers enjoying a lazy afternoon beer while the staffs were still trying to put a few last touches to the opening.
I remembered the Entertainer App has 1 for 1 main course promotion at Coq & Balls. Just to make sure that the offer is still valid, I double checked the Entertainer App again while waiting for Charleen before proceeding to the Coq & Balls. The 1 for 1 promotion is valid until end of the year.
Mixed Mushroom Stir Fried in Butter 2/5
Since it is a bar, Coq & Balls does not really have a extensive food menu. There are only 5 selections of mains and 2 desserts on the menu while the rest are tapas which logically is understandable. We started with some tapas and ad the Mixed Mushroom Stir Fried in Butter ($9). We each took a bite of it and left the rest untouched as it was way too salty for consumption.
Glazed Teriyaki Chicken Yakitori 3 sticks 2/5
The other tapas item we tried was the Glazed Teriyaki Chicken Yakitori (3 sticks for $8). It was too bland in my opinion and we found some pieces of the chicken not cooked thoroughly. Once again we did not finish the tapas and left 2 sticks untouched.
Brazen Beef Steak 2.5/5
Since I have not had my lunch, I decided to get the Brazen Beef Steak ($24) which is served with fries and salad. The steak is served in slices which is done to the doneness I have requested. However the steak itself had too much tendon which was hard to bite and I did not enjoy it. It definitely felt that I was served a lousy cut of meat for the amount I have paid.
Tempura Fish and Chips 4/5
Finally the redemption came from the Tempura Fish and Chips ($15). The lightly battered tempura locking up the moist fish inside was definitely one of the best I have tried so far.
As usual for the payment, I just entered my 4 digits password to redeem the 1 for 1 main course, pass it to the staff to enter their 4 digits password and as easy as ABC, I got one of my main course free.
