Who'd have thought that in the quiet, almost sleepy surburbia of Jalan Tua Kong you'd find an American pub called Blooie's Roadhouse Bar & Grill. It looks a tad bit out of place as it's right smack in the middle of a neighborhood filled with bungalows, terrace houses, and condominiums.
Blooie's looks like it should be frequented by dusty Harley-Davidson riders who'd stop by for some drinks and a few games of pool. Instead, you find a good mix of expats, dating couples, and families. Service is surprisingly good and friendly, and it's a place to go to if you have a craving for hearty American meals at American sizes.
We liked the burgers and the nachos. Terence didn't quite like his lime Margherita, but I guzzled down my virgin lime Margherita. Maybe it's just a pregnancy craving; I was hankering for the same thing the first pregnancy too.
Jalan Tua Kong is in the East, but Blooie's has branches in Science Park and Rail Mall (Bukit Timah) too.
