The Lokal

3041 Wishlisted


In 2014, Aussie Chef Darren Farr started The Lokal, a Modern Australian Restaurant-Bar, providing all our customers with homemade comfort food — including butter, sauces, pickles and meats all made on site. 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 Tasmanian Grass Fed Steak Frites, Catch of the Day and Grilled Pork Chops. Aside from the normal menus, both Chef Darren & Max also prepare Daily Specials with fresh seasonal produces for Brunch & Dinner, like Victorian Truffles & White Asparagus.

From the Burpple community

It’s been a while since I last dined here so when it came to deciding where our group should go for brunch today, the answer was obvious.
Without hesitation, I tend to gravitate towards the “Pimp Your Breakfast” section of the menu but the “Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich” caught my eye and that was it - I knew instantly what was destined for my belly.
Between the soft hot dog buns was a very large and very juicy piece of thigh meat. It wore a thin layer of crunchy crumbed coating that made the sandwich more fun texturally. Rounding things out with a bit of creaminess was a dollop of coriander mayo and a generous layer of smashed avocado. The rush of spicy heat that I particularly loved, came courtesy of Chef-owner Darren Farr’s housemade sriracha. Last but not least, fresh lettuce and sliced tomatoes were layered in between.
Verdict: A really solid chicken sandwich that I wouldn’t hesitate to order again.

[ Weekend Brunch ] - $60 for 2 people with 1 burger, 1 French toast, 1 earl grey tea and 2 water

**French toast** (close to S$20)
Went for my standard brunch choice. Instead of the normal cinnamon / maple syrup / honey etc, the French toast here has a unique Southeast Asian twist, and I liked it 😍 It’s topped with passion fruits sauce and coconut flakes 🥥 , which gives me the sweet and sour taste with little crunch texture from the seeds and flakes. Of course, you cannot have proper French toast without caramelized banana 🍌. They got that right. Supposedly there is some kaya element in it but I could not taste it.

**Burger** (S$25)
Bae ordered his standard brunch choice - beef burger. He liked it but I think it’s just above average. Patty is juicy and tender, but I had a mouthful that was too salty. Maybe just that one bite...😔

Fatty ends that melt in your mouth yet crispy on the outside. Salad had a citrusy and vinegary taste to it that helps cut through the fattiness of the meat. Pork was tender as well though it required a fair bit of biting.
