KiBar Japanese Grill + Bistro is a hidden gem located within the Civil Service Club @ Changi I serving modern French + Japanese Fusion, it also operates as a bar in the evenings serving Japanese-style tapas with a selection of wines, cocktails and sake.
We were invited to dine at KiBar when we stayed at the Family Suite at CSC @ Changi I and from our dining experience, we are surprised at how unknown this place is. In summary, the atmosphere was great, the décor highly instagrammable and the food delicious!
It Is Open To Public
We spoke with a staff who said that there might be a misconception only club members are allowed to dine at here. So let's start by dispelling this - the restaurant is open to the public! And with the various family-family things to do at Changi Village, here's why we think you should visit the restaurant as part of an entire day out at Changi!
Wonderful Indoor & Outdoor Atmosphere
The bar's atmosphere is relaxed with rolls of spirits decorating the bar. Diners can enjoy their food and drinks with the Changi coastal sea view as backdrop. Do note that the bar is not open to families with kids below 12 years old.
KiBar also offers an alfresco dining area where you can dine under the stars beside Changi Beach. Its tranquil location away from the crowd makes this a wonderful spot for a nice family meal or for a special date night too!
Fairy Lights & Vintage Décor
The amazing alfresco dining area is decorated with fairy lights and vintage décor. With the accompanying sounds of the waves from the nearby Changi Beach, you may just forget that you are still in Singapore.
It was raining when we visited, so we were offered to have our meal at the Victorian-themed indoor dining room instead. The room was cosy and provided a comfortable alternative. But once it stopped raining, we headed outdoor to take more pictures of the alfresco set-up.
For families who visit for the alfresco area, you may wish to take note of the weather or give them a call beforehand to check as it might not be available due to the weather.
Also, do note that only the alfresco area or the indoor dining room is open at any time. This is so that if it rains suddenly, there is sufficient tables for those at the alfresco area to move into the indoor dining room. It also means that families with young kids do not have an indoor option if the alfresco area is open (the bar is not open to children below 12 years old).
We also highly recommend putting on insect repellent if you intend to have a meal at the alfresco area.
Unique And Tasty Creations
We found the menu unique with different types of creations. We had the Tasmanian Salmon Fillet + Pink Sauce, Japanese Wagyu + Foie Gras Kanameshi, Cheese + Casarecce Pasta, Miso Yuzu Corn Ribs, Pork Belly + Mochi "Okonomiyaki" Style and a couple of skewers.
We were hesitant about the Tasmanian Salmon Fillet + Pink Sauce ($28) as we were worried it might be too spicy for the kids but it was great! The fish was tender and the mentaiko sauce was not too spicy or heavy. In fact, the kids ate more of it than we did!
We really loved the Japanese Wagyu + Foie Gras Kanameshi ($36). It was tasty, aromatic and simply delicious. The Japanese rice mixed with mushrooms hits the right spots when paired with the fried garlic and pan seared foie gras.
The Cheese + Casarecce Pasta ($17) was meant for the kids, and it started off promising with the creamy cheese sauce. But after they got distracted with our food, the pasta turned cold and they did not want to finish it.
The Miso Yuzu Corn Ribs ($8) was recommended by the staff, and he was spot on! The kids started picking the chocolate popcorn before nibbling on the corn covered with miso butter. Unfortunately, I can't tell you how it taste - since I did not have the chance to have any!
Another recommendation, the Pork Belly + Mochi "Okonomiyaki" Style ($6.50) is for those who loves your mochi! The pork belly is wrapped around the mochi. You will bite through the crispy outer layer before biting into the soft inside.
KiBar Japanese Grill + Bistro is open from Wed to Sun, from 11 am to 4 pm and from 5 pm to 10 pm. The restaurant is close on Mon and Tue. To make a booking or to get more details, please contact them using the details below.
