“Great service with decent Australia-inspired food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

A cosy joint to have beer with your mates after work, decent Aussie-inspired food and free tibits to go with.

Enjoyed the beer and food pairing with New Zealand's Moa beer. Had the tripel which is not too bad, the roast pork is alright but fails to hit the spot though. There are 4 different pairs, will give the other 3 a try on my next visit.

The kangaroo burger was a tad too dry, not a easy meat to begin with. It should have an option of a full burger rather than the mini ones, couldn't really taste that unique flavour from the kangaroo meat.

Overall, worth a try and will return again.

“Best Eggs Benedict (with a twist)!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

While I have posted a review on Intrepif before, I can't resist doing it again after having their eggs benedict yesterday. Served with their own house-smoked salmon on potato rosti instead of the standard smoked salmon slices and english muffin, it was absolutely delicious!! I can't wait to go back again. Another great breakfast dish of note is the Dukkah Spiced Baked Beans with roast pork belly.

“Decent food and service in bar street”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Some of the food we ordered were really good, other parts of our meal was not that satisfactory. Some of us ordered a big piece of meat, ca 1,2kg (cant remember the name of the dish). We had problems chewing some of the meat we were served. The crocodile skewers were nice to have tried also, but could also be a bit chewy. The staff were welcoming, but forgetful. I think we tried to order extra water three or four times.

Hi ZumZumZum

Thank you for visiting Intrepid during your trip to Singapore.

We are glad you enjoyed some of the dishes, in particular the Black Angus Sliders (from memory there were four to five sets ordered).

It is great you and your guests were adventurous to try the Tandoori Crocodile Skewers. Crocodile naturally have denser muscles, the meat will tend to have a "pulley" (or as you describe it as 'chewy') affect. Don't forget crocodile is a reptile!

The 1.2kg Angus Rib Eye (bone in) is a 200 days old aged meat to achieve the right tenderness. The meat has a marbling effect. Some part of the rib eye (in particular the edges close to the bones) do have more vein structure, hence, it may appear to be on the chewy side.

We take note on the service level and will address a smarter approach on water service for larger groups in future.

Thanks for the feedback and we hope you will dine with us in your future visits to Singapore.
