Outpost 903 @ Bukit Timah Road

Located at 903 Bukit Timah Road, Outpost 903 is a restaurant bar inspired by gastrobars in the UK, featuring quality grub in a cozy bar within a residential neighbourhood.

Outpost 903 is not easily accessible by public transport, but if you are driving, it is easy to spot it along Bukit Timah Road because of the wall paintings:

Local TV host, Lin Youyi is one of the co-owner of the restaurant bar. Rachel and I met up with her during our hosted dinner:

Youyi is a very fun, approachable and hospitable person, much like the personification of the brand values for Outpost 903 itself. She candidly shared with us details behind the menu items, the choice of decors, even on her age-defying secrets.

Outpost 903 is around two years old now and has been featured widely in the local media.

True to its gastrobars aspiration, the menu features mostly simple comfort food – the kind of stuff you will want to binge on while watching a football match or catching up with a group of friends in the neighbourhood.

Youyi described the food at Outpost 903 as a good combination of old-fashion American and British bar menu classics with a Peranakan twist in some.

Here are some of the items we sampled:
