Brewerkz, Orchard Rendezvous Hotel

Brewerkz, Orchard Rendezvous Hotel

Brewerkz has set up shop at Orchard Rendezvous Hotel (#01-08 Orchard Rendezvous Hotel, 1 Tanglin Road, tel : +65 9012 6154). You know, the one that used to be called Orchard Parade Hotel and used to house Black Angus Steakhouse and Modesto's right at the front. 

I remember lamenting over the quality and execution a few years ago. Seems like they've revamped their menu since and it was actually a change for the better.

Brewerkz, fort siloso chocolate vanilla porter

But first, their craft beer - the Fort Siloso Chocolate Vanilla porter which lived up in flavour to its name. Not the Fort Siloso part.

Brewerkz, burratina gazpacho

Their chilled gazpacho with burratina was just the thing to help take the heat off the blistering weather. There's flavour of tomatoes and red bell peppers punctuated by tart sweetness from balsamic vinegar and little cubes of quince. All that with creaminess from the little burrata. Nice.

Brewerkz, fried sardines

These were fried sardines in pilsner batter. Tasted a lot better than it looked. The batter was sufficiently light, crisp and enveloped those piping hot tender sardines. I'd eat this again.

Brewerkz, lamb ribs

Pretty much slurp off the bone lamb ribs with honey mustard. Portions were pretty generous for something under their appetizer section. Those chunks of beetroot on the side were sweet. No complains and definitely no qualms ordering this again.

Brewerkz, cacio e pepe quail

They have a couple of dishes that are only available in this outpost. This tagliolini cacio e pepe with pan fried quail was one of them. This. Was. Delicious. Would have liked more pepper but otherwise the cheesy pasta was moreish. We had half expected the quail to be tough chewy but it was pleasantly moist, sufficiently tender with a good bite and had a nice flavour from the marinate. Could eat this again too.  

Brewerkz, mangrove red snapper

The other outlet exclusive dish was the mangrove red snapper sourced from Ah Hua Kelong. Great pairing from the creamy dashi beurre blanc and ikura. familiar this one. Believe it or not, I could eat this again. How many times have you heard me say that already? I surprise even myself.

Brewerkz, oatmeal stout beeramisu

Dessert was their Oatmeal Stout tiramisu. Couldn't say that I could taste the booze but this was a competently done tiramisu. I like the flavour of the mascarpone in it.
