The OG of local rooftop bars might be – literally – overshadowed by younger upstarts on taller buildings, but it hasn't yet lost its place on our list of watering holes for a fun night out. The beer is cold, the vibe casual, and the food now deserves special mention, thanks to Bjorn Shen.
The chef-owner of Artichoke and Bird Bird brings his 'dude food' leanings to Loof. We're talking over-the-top and greasy-in-a-good-way dishes that you wish you could save in the fridge for when the munchies hit. The Pork Chopper ($19) is a cream cracker-battered pork chop slathered in salted veggie slaw between brioche buns, the chilli crab waffle fries ($15) comes with a moreish blue crab dip, and you won't stop munching on the furikake sweet potato fries ($13) – Kewpie plus the Japanese seasoning equals magic. Another highlight: the bak chor mee grilled cheese sandwich ($18), which packs in minced pork, mushrooms and lots of cheese between sourdough slices. And you thought the hawker staple was sinful enough.
