Ah Sam Cold Drink Stall
Filed in best cocktail bars | March 17, 2017
This tucked-away cocktail bar in Boat Quay will entice you with its small, cozy interior and large flavorful cocktail menu. Owned by Jigger & Pony’s Sam Wong, this place equally competes with all the large cocktail bars in Singapore, despite its simple décor and tight space.
- A cocktail bar with a local touch: This buzzing little place breathes, speaks and smells local. Everything from the simple furnishing, linguistic name, local delicacies and cocktails oozes with Singaporean authenticity.
- Quick-stop worthy cocktails in a homey and casual setting: Don’t let the simplicity of this bar drive you away. With only a few wooden seating areas around the standard-looking bar, this place’s interior far from fancy. However, it is the perfect stop for a carefully crafted top-of-the-line cocktail after a stroll on the Singapore River. From splendid martinis to gin-filled bevvys, the bartender will gladly whip up and customize any drink you crave. Try ‘The Final Gift’ for an ultimate kick – created with strong liquer, red dates and dried longan, this concoction is not for the faint-hearted!
- Highly-recommended bites to satisfy your hunger: This spot features some of the best hawker dishes in Singapore. The Hokkien mee ($12) combines wok-fried shrimp, noodles, squid and chili-lime sauce. Fancy something different? Try the ‘har jeong gai’ featuring fermented prawn paste and chicken for just $10.
