Harry’s bar made waves when it launched in Indiranagar earlier this year, quickly establishing a reputation as the place to unwind after work. Now Singapore’s best-known pub is celebrating the opening of a Koramangala branch, rolling out a new all-day dining menu, signature Singapore-inspired cocktails and tasty finger food. With a resident DJ to pump out peppy classics, a full sized pool table and multiple flat screen televisions for sports viewing, it’s all set to become the perfect neighbourhood haunt.
On the rocks
Harry’s signature cocktails include the Singapore Sling— a blend of gin, cherry brandy, pineapple and lime. More inventive concoctions include Harry’s Old Fashioned, a treat for whiskey lovers. Brilliant in its simplicity, it blends Scotch on ice and caramel, with fresh orange peel adding an acidic undertone. No less beautifully presented are the range of house mocktails. The King Alfonso adds an elegant twist to what is essentially an ice cream soda, blending mango juice, ice cream and coconut cream, with dessicated coconut adorning the rim of the glass.
All day bites
For a small bite, you can’t do better than the Prawns Tamarindo. Lightly battered in seasoned breadcrumbs, the prawns come with mango and tamarind dipping sauces, perfect for adding either a sweet or sour kick. Mushroom Fritters are another satisfying option — dipped in the same batter, they are topped with melted cheese and served with garlic-infused mayonnaise. The all day breakfast is a very welcome addition to the menu, perfect for a late weekend brunch or unconventional dinner. Relish eggs made according to your preference, along with hot buttered toast, hash browns, herbed peas and chicken sausages.
