Osaka Bar’s menu includes classic Osaka soul food such as tako-yaki balls (fried octopus balls), okonomiyaki (Japanese savoury pancake) and kush-katsu (deep fried skewered meat). The popcorn prawn is not to be missed and the spicy soft shell crab tempura is another hit. The signature grilled duck confit is the pick of the menu, with tender and flavoursome 65℃ confit duck breast, seared and oven grilled served with blueberry miso sauce and honey mustard.
