|The quirky logo|
The Barking Deer… the name’s as quirky as the logo and brand image and there couldn’t be a better mascot that would reflect the exact sense of fun that the founder & managing director Gregory Kroitzsh totally lives by!
We tried the following:
|chicken buffalo wings with blue cheese dip|
- Coriander rubbed tiger prawns on a bed of garlic cous cous
- Chicken waterzooi stewed in beer with assorted exotic vegetables
- Grilled chicken in earl grey jus served with mash potatoes & sautéed vegetables

The main course menu intrigued me at first sight. A variety of delicacies have been prepared in beer in ways that are new not just to me, but also to many of my readers; so we decided to try one of them… the chicken waterzooi that’s stewed in beer. A comparatively bland soup-like dish, but with an intense tangy flavour, I’d say it’s not for everyone… specially not for someone who thrives on spice in his/her meal.
I have officially declared the coriander rubbed prawns as the clear winner and my most favourite dish so far. Brilliantly flavoured tiger prawns and for someone who isn’t a cous cous fan, I couldn’t get enough of it.
- Fresh fruit and Mascarpone tarte
- Date and Almond Tarte with Caramelized Banana

Although I’m not really a tarte person, the fresh fruit and mascarpone tarte was a delightful treat. The mascarpone cheese was heavenly to say the least and combining it with fresh fruits and a perfectly baked crust as a base, is a great way to finish a delectable meal!
Gregory knows how to pamper his guests, deliver the best and made sure the evening turned out to be a whole lot special by getting the chef to present a dessert that’s not on the menu yet… the date & almond tarte with caramelized bananas. I love exclusivity, and I believe I was served the same. Thank You Greg! 🙂
|The Barking Deer… with its wooden cabin-like interiors|
The Barking Deer is the ideal spot for one of those leisure meals you’d like to enjoy with an assortment of beverages, have a good time with your buddies, with board games in the house and multiple TV screens. Also, I’m pretty sure the prompt service and high level of hospitality will not go unnoticed by you either… And hey, what can I say, they played some of our all time favourite, American classics from the 70s and 80s that only made The Barking Deer experience so much cooler & enjoyable!
Drop by… whether you’re into beer or not, cuz it’s definitely worth checking out.
