Big Bear Bistro and Bar
2 Tan Quee Lan Street
(The street is opposite Nando’s from Bugis Junction)
Big Bear was founded by like-minded friends who were unable to find a cosy environment to relax and chill over good food and drinks at affordable pricing. Big Bear serves mainly western dishes and their sauces and dressings are prepared from scratch.
Looking for a nice place to chill after dinner? No need for that because Big Bear also has a well stocked bar and has a good variety of single malt whiskies! You can have your meal and drink all at the same place. How convenient is that?
Mushroom Soup S$7.90 – Rich and creamy mushroom soup and although I quite like this, I still prefer to be able to taste the mushroom bits in my soup.
Big Bear’s Salad S$10.90 – Tossed salad in balsamic sauce and served with poached egg coupled with ham slices is bound to please all hungry bears.
Calamari Fries S$8.90 – It’s interesting to see calamari serve in the shapes of fries. Take a strip and dip in into the homemade tartar sauce. Yummy.
Fish Fingers S$8.90 – Wrapped in a secret recipe hand whisked beer batter, these crispy fish fingers dipped in orange mustard sauce… DELICIOUS! I am in love with the orange mustard sauce. Must Try!
Black Maiden S$17.90 – There is an interesting story to the creation of this dish. Black Maiden is dedicated to a girl in the Chef’s life that didn’t like black pepper sauce. Designed to compliment the dory fish, it is served with a unique back pepper sauce made of a concoction of expresso and coke. I am not a fan of the black pepper but this sauce is really good. Served along with a side of salad with cheesy baked potato.
Hawaii Pork – I love all the homemade sauce that the Chefs at Big Bear created. This marinated pork tasted especially delicious when dipped into the pineapple sauce.
Bears love Chips S$13.90 – Like the fish fingers, this fish and chips is served with the yummy orange mustard sauce as well. If you would like to have it all by yourself, you might want to order this but if you would like to share, you can have the same dish by ordering the Fish Fingers.
Meltic Strip Loin – Cooked medium rare and served with red wine wholegrain mustard sauce, it tasted so good as the beef melts in my mouth! A must try if you asked me! I am loving the mash potatoes too.
Bacon Aglio Olio S$14.50 – I am not a fan of the Aglio Olio but my friends loved it. Served with generous bacon slices, the al dente spaghetti is tossed in olive oil, garlic and pepper.
Creamy Cheese Pasta S$13.90 – I LOVE cheese and to know this pasta is cooked in a rich creamy sauce made up of 3 different types of cheese; Mozzarella, Parmesan and Cheddar. Me likey!
Banana Sabayon S$12.80 – Dessert of the night!!! Who would have guessed banana + egg sauce can taste so divine! Definitely the highlight of the night that we had to order another plate to satisfy our taste buds! A new twist in banana dessert covered in egg sauce served with vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce.
Red wine poached pear S$16.90 – Poached pear soaked in red wine and poached for about 3 days therefore its soft and nicely infused with the natural sweetness of the pear along with the sourness of the red wine. Eat it on its own or spread a little vanilla ice cream to it.
