Smokey's BBQ


Every time I come to Smokey's BBQ (and it's been often these past few weeks), I can't help but stare at the wall. That's because hanging on the wall is a San Jose Sharks flag. The owner, Rob, is a Sharks fan from the Bay Area, too. In my head I'm taken back to San Jose, to the sports bar across from our old apartment. At Smokey's, it's easy to forget you're sitting in a restaurant in Joo Chiat.

The vibe at Smokey's is definitely different from anything else you'll find on the island, but the menu is what keeps us coming back. Jeff has fallen in love with Smokey's brisket, while I'm obsessed with the baby back ribs. Entrees aren't the only smoked items on the menu though. There's even a smoked IPA beer on tap! If you're looking for really delicious American food in Singapore and a good beer selection, your search ends here.
Sitting at the bar is perfect for watching sporting events (which are always on). Unfortunately, I don't think we'll be watching a lot of hockey here. Most games are live in the US during the morning in Singapore, and Smokey's is only open for dinner at the moment. This is probably a good thing, because Jeff and I would go broke if there was such a thing as hockey brunch.

Want to check Smokey's out for yourself? I recommend calling ahead for reservations as the place tends to fill up. You can even reserve seats at the bar. 

Tip: substitute hand cut fries instead of regular fries. Thank me later.
