Dallas Restaurant & Bar has been a popular expat and tourist haunt at Boat Quay since 2006 and as part of their 10th anniversary celebrations, they have opened a second outlet at Suntec City Sky Garden. The glass house-style restaurant is located between Tower 1 and 5 and you will save time getting there by taking the long outdoor escalator from the ground floor.
The bar is an ideal place to catch sporting events on large screen TVs, either at the island bar or al fresco area, while chilling out over drinks. With over 40 carefully curated wine labels, a variety of chilled brews on tap, followed by an extensive cocktail list, you are spoilt for choice.
Grilled Corn ($6). Perfectly roasted sweet corn topped with Chipotle mayonnaise (with a strong emphasis on the word ‘perfectly’), sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Talk about starting with a bang! I like corn, but I am not one who will obsess about it. That said, I could not get enough of this. For that reason, if you are a fan of corn, I heartily recommend that you order this.
Jalapeno Croquettes ($15). Deep-fried nuggets of breaded mashed spuds mixed with bechamel sauce, shredded cheddar and chopped jalapeno peppers, then served with green chilli mayonnaise. These babies are simply too cute! Also, as spicy as the dish sounds, the cheese seems to neutralise the spiciness. I wished I took a cross-section, you can just imagine the gooey, stretchy melted cheese!
Snapper Fish Tacos ($22). Chunky pieces of deep-fried snapper on mini flour tortillas with Spanish, onions and homemade pineapple chutney, then topped off with Chipotle mayonnaise and strips of baby radish. The dish comes with three pieces and its $8 for an additional tacos.
Crispy Pork Belly Tacos ($14). Crispy pork belly on mini flour tortillas with guacamole spread, drizzled with homemade aioli and garnished with slices of jalapenos and pickled Spanish onions. Similar to the fish tacos, should you want to order more than three pieces, you need to add on and for this, it is an additional $5.
It is a toss-up which of the tacos is nicer, since they were both so delicious. The pork tacos comes with the ideal crackling skin and tender meat. However, I think my vote goes to the snapper, as it was fried till crisp and the chutney, comprising of honey, onions, pineapple and a hint of vinegar added just the right amount of acidity.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Dallas Restaurant & Bar, the restaurant has introduced two new dishes and one of which is the Dallas Meat Platter ($70 for two/ $130 for four), which comes with:
- Grilled Australian lamb cutlets (two cutlets/ four cutlets)
- Slow-cooked pork ribs with tangy, sweet berry glaze or fiery BBQ sauce (half slab/ full slab)
- Rotisserie chicken with dry chilli rub (quarter chicken/ half chicken)
- Prime rib steak cooked medium-rare (250g/ 300g)
- Roasted potatoes
- Side salad
- Mushroom or black pepper sauce, and choice of mustards
The second anniversary dish is the 100-day grain fed Australian Prime Rib Steak ($40). The slab of prime rib is seasoned and slow roasted for 15 hours before it is finished on the grill for the medium-rare doneness. This is then served with french fries, salad or seasonal vegetables.
- Prime Rib Promotion: On weekends, guests can enjoy free-flow of this premium cut at only $35 per person.
