In 2014, Aussie Chef Darren Farr started The Lokal, a casual Australian Restaurant-Bar with an open kitchen concept, providing customers with honest house-made comfort food from day to night — including butter, sauces, pickles & meats all made on site with good produce. Our name is German for local eatery, an influence that be explained by its proximity to Goethe-Institut Singapore and is also reflective of our diverse & worldly approach towards food.

In the day, he serves up healthy and hearty brunches like Smashed Avocado with House-made Ricotta, Roasted Pumpkin Salad, and Steak & Eggs, but slowly transits into a cozy and versatile space for casual after-work drinks & comfort food by German Head Chef Max Strauch such as Grilled Pork Chops, Tasmanian Grass Fed Steak Frites and Catch of the Day. Aside from the normal menus, both Chef Darren & Max also prepare Daily Specials with fresh seasonal produce.


Get your day started with coffee by Paradise Coffee Roasters, with alternative milk options like Minor Figures Oat Milk, Bonsoy and Coconut Milk available.
If coffee is not your thing, there’s a wide selection of smoothies, freshly squeezed juices, housemade sodas and teas to choose from.
The booze menu comprises of Pilsner Urquell on tap, classic cocktails & wines that are great for day-to-night and easy drinking to knock back a few.

So, the next time you swing by, pull out a seat at the kitchen counter to see how your food is prepared and have a chat with the chefs to find out more about what you’re eating at The Lokal!
