Keefer Bar Happy Hour

The Keefer Bar Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Got dragged to the Keefer Bar for their happy hour (Sunday to Friday). Not a bad deal (2-for-1 food) except you have to buy a drink with it and I'm not a drinker. So she had the drink, I had a non-alcoholic beverage, we shared the two food plates -- and somehow we ended up splitting the bill in half which meant I walked out feeling having overpaid. Which was actually not the case.

Food is okay with some nice points and there's a decent selection of gluten-free choices. Nothing that really stands out but decent in taste and portion at full price -- meaning it's really good value during 2-for-1 happy hour, which is at a very convenient 5pm-7pm -- dinner right after work.
It's all small plates and it doesn't look like you can put together a dinner, but you actually CAN and at a good price during happy hour! So just patiently order and order again. Two of the larger plates can possibly add up to a fairly filling meal and you're topping it at $10 for two plates during happy hour.

Tacos ($10 for two tacos; choose from 3 flavours)
  • We opted for the Lapsang Smoked Pork Taco. Looks like pulled pork but it's NOT! It's smoked! So don't expect gratuitous savory-sweet BBQ sauce.
  • Sample it first of course but I definitely recommend both the lime and a bit of the sweet onion relish.

2017-Aug-8 Keefer Bar - Peking Duck Sliders

Peking Duck Sliders ($10 for two)
  • Doesn't look like much so open it up and hopefully you'll find what I did -- a generously thick slab of duck.
  • Works out to slightly more than a burger.
  • Cucumber cilantro pineapple relish inside mostly tasted like pineapple, and not so much of it to cover up your duck. Pretty good combo with the duck.
  • Tender, moist duck. But where's my tasty Peking Duck skin? Isn't that the point of Peking duck?

I tried to sit up my duck slab to show you how thick it is. You do have to also take in account the slice not being fully the same circumference of the bun though.

Fantasy Island #2 ($14) Absolut Elyx, Happy wine, pomegranate, strawberry rhubarb tea, lemon egg white
  • My friend's drink order. She was happy enough with it to consider getting something else but in the end we opted for more food.

Fantasy Island blend, soda ($6)
  • Supposedly similar to the cocktail but minus the alcohol.
  • Waste of time. A fruity pop (like Fanta, maybe) would have been cheaper and tasted better.
