East Side, Funk Side: Drunken Farmer brings its brand of unadulterated funk to the east at Joo Chiat
Riding on the success of turning the Stanley Street outpost of Common Man Coffee Roasters into a “two-faced” concept earlier April, its Joo Chiat branch now welcomes a nightly transformation from neighbourhood cafe to a bar and bistro offering a gut-friendly rouse of sourdough-focused sharing plates and natural wines.
East side hang for the natural wine enthusiasts
Here's what you can expect at Drunken Farmer Joo Chiat
Good in every locale
From what started as a traveling pop-up dedicated to spreading the goodness of natural wines to moving into a permanent home at Stanley Street earlier this year, Drunken Farmer is now settling into its second home in Joo Chiat on Singapore’s East Coast, with its signature proposition of pairing minimally intervened wines with naturally leavened sourdough dishes.
A nightly transformation
As with its Stanley Street predecessor, the Joo Chiat interiors will undergo a transition once the sun sets. Fashioned as a juxtaposed mash to convey the quirky discovery of natural wines, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a rousing company of Viking and Ancient Greek emblems, whimsically contrasted with Victorian clown murals that’ll leave you wondering if it’s the high playing tricks on your eyes.
Hearty communal eats
Devised for neighbourhood hangs, you’ll be crossing hands on a wholesome curation of plates including a signature sourdough battered Karaage and sharing platters lined with homemade dips. Fans of Chef Paul Albert’s sourdough pizzas will be delighted to see two new classic variations crafted from his 160 year-old starter that adds an assertive tang to perfectly airy and chewy crusts.
Gut-friendly quaffable sips
Think an ever-expanding array of natural wines across all characters of red, wine, orange, rosé and sparkling – you name it, they’ve got it. Co-curated by natural wine geek, Eduardo Bayo and Spa Esprit Group’s Founder Cynthia Chua to drive surprising discoveries, you can expect a rotation of 14 wines by-the-glass, along with over 80 variants by the bottle for fresh uncoverings at every visit.
