About THE LOKAL


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 can 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.

The booze menu comprises of beers, cocktails & wines that are great for day-to-night drinking.

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!
