Tom, Dick & Harry’s
Three men and a watering hole? Even better
Ever since TDH (as often abbreviated) opened its doors, it has become a regular after-work haunt for yuppies and creatives living in PJ, but this is not just a trend. Run by not three but two jolly chaps, the young pub-and-grub is stationed along the much bustling Rahim Kajai row in TTDI, which also houses Sid’s Pub and Deutsches Gasthaus. Aside from their great drink promotions, the pub’s chunky wooden tables and blackboard signs ala ‘English brewery canteen’ and the “not too dark but not too bright” light fixtures make TDH a sociable and comfortable atmosphere.
Music is secondary; you won’t have to oblige live performances here – the noise factor from the loud conversations alone, half of which are made by the staff themselves, parallels loudspeakers. There’s no denying their top notch service; always in good spirits and greeting you like Italians at Christmas. Their kitchen cooks up succulent, homey digs to match your drink; try Dick’s Favourite Steak, the gigantic Pork Knuckle and sinful Fried Mars & Snickers Bars. And for a seemingly t-shirt-wearing establishment, TDH makes great fancy cocktails as well; the bartenders are all award-winning mixologists!
But there’s no upturned-nose behaviour here (with the exception of the pork in your dish); this pub and grub also prides in being a neighbourhood charm, strong on community gatherings and bringing everyone together for, say, their great weekend breakfast. Heck, the TDH boys even take trips out to hunt wild boar so they could serve everyone great curry. There you go.
