As one of the few bars / watering holes in the far eastern side of Singapore, Slackers' Bar & Cafe has an edge over its competition: a rooftop view, and good ambience. And while office workers around the area may go there to 'slack', the staff certainly aren't relaxing!

The best thing about Slackers' Bar & Cafe is the rooftop ambience, with a view of the 2 shopping centers surrounding it, Changi City Point and UE BizHub. The rooftop garden adds a touch of greenery, while Slackers' Bar & Cafe leverages on the ample space here to allocate a Darts area. They also have a free Snooker / Pool table for customers!

Service at Slackers' Bar & Cafe definitely isn't slack. Staff are friendly, and take orders quickly, though fulfilling orders can take a good 15 - 20 minutes. The interior of Slackers' Bar & Cafe is small, but the space is put to good use, with the bar at the front acting as a visual display.

Slackers' Bar & Cafe offers both Western and Asian cuisine, focusing on burgers, pasta, pizza, and bar bites. It seems most of the dishes have a generous portion, and are prepared to order, which means a slight wait for your food.

A side note, interestingly enough, it appears that Slackers' Bar & Cafe has had some problems with a recent Groupon promotion, and most diners who utilised the Groupon voucher at Slackers' Bar & Cafe had negative experiences due to some miscommunication of T&C.

The lush greenery of the rooftop, and the view of both Changi City Point and UE BizHub make the ambience here stand out... Even without their free snooker / pool table and darts area.

Beer Erdinger Weissbier (SGD $16 Half Pint x 2, SGD $22 Full Pint x 2) is on tap here, and Happy Hours mean the prices here are among the cheapest in Singapore for this beer.

The Chicken Quesadillas (SGD $18) has nicely melted cheese, grilled chicken that is still slightly moist and not dry, diced fresh tomatoes and jalapenos for a tangy, sour and spicy kick. I loved the accompanying sour cream and home made salsa. But the ration of filling in the Chicken Quesadillas is poor, with very little chicken, and an overwhelming amount of cheese.

The Egg Burji (SGD $6.95), or Egg Poriyal, is a delicious mix of scrambled eggs, diced tomatoes and onions with Indian spices. Originating from Tamil Nadu, South India, this traditional Indian side dish makes for an unusual bar snack or appetizer, and is quite popular here.

The Basket Of Fries (SGD $7.95) is a nice sharing basket of thick cut, warm and crisp fries. Lightly salted and with a nice potato flavour. Excellent with beer!

The Fish Fingers (SGD $8.95) arrives with 5 perfectly cooked pieces. Crisp exterior, with a hot interior, drizzled with a dash of lemon juice, just lovely. Can you do this at home? Sure. But I still like it!

The Onion Pakoda (SGD $7.95) is a traditional South India snack, consisting of a basic deep fried onion fritter battered with Indian spices. Slightly spicy, crunchy, and with a hint of sweetness from the fresh onions, this is a great bar snack.

The Slackers' Fish And Chips (SGD $16.95) features 2 strips of creamy dory fish, in a thin but limp batter. The portion is large, and quite filling, but the taste is just about average, no better or worse than others I've had elsewhere. Decent dish to order if you're here, and one of the few main courses on the menu.
