Htapodi

3 dip platter ($21.90) + 2x pita ($2.90) 🥙 9/10

The dip platter includes taramasalata (cod roe), tzatziki, and hummus. I actually enjoyed this the most because of the fresh ingredients in the dips. I could eat this every day!

Kalamari ($22.90) 🦑 6/10

Looks good but it wasn't really battered to give it a satisfying crisp texture. Not that special in my opinion.

Meat platter ($97.90) 🍗 7/10

Don't get me wrong -- I really enjoyed the fabulously-cooked skewers and lamb chops. They were charred outside while pink and juicy inside!

But most of the meat platter was filler stuff like meatloaf (kebab), meatballs, and sausage, which made the the price tag seem more reasonable. I'd very much rather order a plate of souvlaki skewers next time, which would only go at $18.90.

Htapodi ($32.90) 🐙 8/10

Hands down one of the best octopus I've ever had in Singapore. The octopus was firm, juicy, and marinated in a sharp lemon sauce that surely helped to tenderise the flesh.

Moussaka ($25.90) 🥘 7/10

The eggplant was so thick it took up most of the dish while the sauce and cheese was just on top. Still quite a decent dish though.

Halloumi ($16.90) 🧀 7/10

I quite enjoyed this grilled cheese when I was in Greece but it carries quite a hefty price tag here.

A must order dish when you go to bakalaki. The texture was on point! It’s best to get a reservation because it’s so popular! Managed to snag 2 seats by walking in for dinner. Great atmosphere! Loved it!

Served with lemon, oregano and extra virgin olive oil. Texture is perfect, chewy but not rubbery and well-flavoured.

I always leave this place with big smiles 😃

One of the best versions of grilled Octopus I have had yet. A must get when at this establishment, the umami of this tender and succulent piece of meat is amplified with the charred surface of the Octopus. A crowd pleaser that would satisfy one's tastebuds.

Who’s a fan of Greek food here? I’m no expert in Greek food but I can say that I really like Bakalaki. It’s fresh, hearty and flavourful.

At every Greek restaurant, it’s typical for people to order octopus. I have a love-hate relationship with this eight legged animal as it can be rather rubbery and tough if not done well. But this was amazing. The tentacles were fresh and nicely grilled (not too burnt) where it was soft and slightly chewy when you bite into it. Condiments are very simple. It’s just a wedge of lemon, oregano and extra virgin olive oil. This way you can really tell if the seafood is really fresh.

They’re open for takeaway/ delivery during this CB period. So do check them out if you wanna have Greek/ Mediterranean food at home.

Grilled to perfection, notwithstanding the level of complex in cooking this with the perfect char 🔥

Both the grilled lamb chop ($32.9) and grilled octopus $32.9) that we ordered were well executed. Coupled with the wine and a lively atmosphere, a good place for dinner dates or group gathering. we mentioned that it was our anniversary and they surprised us with a dessert on the house. overall very good experience.

Bakalaki is a Greek Restuarant that serves good authentic Greek food. Booking must be done at least a few days or more in advance. Their grilled octopus is slightly charred outside and the inside is soft and tender. Definitely a dish worth to try.

This was the mixed seafood platter with Tsipoura fish ( sea bream) taking pride of place and grilled to perfection. 118 sgd ++. Accompanied by a pair of tender jumbo prawns and a chargrilled octopus which was delicious. The calamari was also well executed if a little hard work at the end but only because of the quantity. Relaxing and bright ambience and very busy even at a lunchtime sitting. Great place to come if you’re a) hungry and b) in a big group so you can try more. Excellent restaurant and well run. Will be back!
