Craft beer café/stand in Dhoby Ghaut
For craft beers, pool, darts, foosball, table tennis and beer pong under one roof, head to Hopheads. The bottles on offer from entry level raspberry soda-like Wittekerke Rose ($12) and owl-logo Hitachino Nest ($12), to the extremely hoppy Ninkasi Tricerahops Double IPA ($15), and wine drinker-favoured Rocheforts ($19). A revolving selection of brews pour out of the two draft taps, including a hoppy Stone Go To IPA ($12/375ml) and Anderson Valley Leeber Paw Pils ($12/375ml) on our visit.
The team knows enough to recommend a beer and one of the deli-standard salads ($12.90), burgers ($17.90), tapas ($7.90-$17.90) and sharing plates ($34-$45). The craft beer hype may continue to grow, and HopHeads is a welcome addition, helped by its easy ambience and tasty brews.

With a name like "HopHeads" I expected there to be more of a beer focus from the restaurant. Alas, the lunch menu given me didn't list a single beer they had on draught or in bottles. And while there was an okay selection of beer I would consider this more a bistro with a better-than-average selection of beers to choose from.
The seafood pasta I ordered took about 15 minutes to get to me and was made with a marinara sauce that tasted like Ragu. This is lunch time people. I want my meal pronto!
I think I just expected to much from this place.
