Bar 138 may look every bit like a bar, but ask for the menu and prepare to be pleasantly surprised. In addition to a full breakfast menu, simple pub grub with a twist reveals the chef’s time spent in Kuala Lumpur with green chicken curry, Asian fish cakes and chicken satay sticks.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
If it wasn’t for the bold red and grey decor of Bar 138 on Barrack, you might miss it. Tucked behind the heritage-listed Railway Hotel facade on the ground floor of Medina Executive Apartments, the red lounges inside this simply decorated venue do their job by catching the eye. In a similar style to funky day/night hotspots on Melbourne’s Greville Street, everything about this place points towards a bar yet the food is surprisingly good.

In addition to a full breakfast menu, simple pub grub with a twist reveals the chef’s time spent in Kuala Lumpur with green chicken curry, Asian fish cakes and chicken satay sticks. Pub classics such as fish and chips, steak sandwiches and the “138 chicken burger” all arrive in gigantic portions with enough fries to feed Perth’s entire seagull population. Although you may be thinking “quantity rather than quality”, do not be mistaken – this food has been made with as much care as any classy restaurant yet you get to enjoy it without the snootiness. A word of advice: if you’re into judging a place by its table settings and restaurant charm, then go somewhere else or arrive after dark when the interior lighting puts Bar 138 at its visual best.

Bar 138 on Barrack - User Reviews

Ceb:

I absolutely love this place. It has a relaxed but well presented feel from the moment you walk in. The menu is simple and easy to understand and it's the only place ever that I have bought hot chips that weren't WAY to hot to eat. Thumbs up on that one. The $10 deals are awesome but mostly I love that they are trying to be a energy efficient and sustainable business. The new garden wall is well beyond impressive and I can't wait to taste something cooked with the produce. We will most definitely be back to this little treasure hidden on Barrack street.review  19/01/2013
