THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bar Q Restaurant Review

: Never let first impressions fool you. While Bar Q, helmed by chef Anita Lo, offers a stark white and pale wood-toned ambience that is more IKEA than Asia, the savory spicy flavors of the East come through. Appetizers may come from the raw bar or as meatier dishes like the spit-roasted pork belly with kimchi, takuan and steamed buns. While the pickled kimchi and radish-like takuan tickle the taste buds, the pork belly and steamed buns seem a bit bland. On the other hand, spicy pork wings (maybe pigs really can fly?) covered in a bright red chili sauce and accompanied by shiso salad are spectacular. Equally impressive is the sweet miso-glazed eggplant. Wash it all down with innovative spiked green bubble tea or shiso julep cocktails, and then polish off the evening with the carrot-ginger-macadamia cake and a scoop of pandanus (floral) vanilla ice cream. The presentation of the food mimics the eatery’s style: sophistication without a lot of affectation.
