Founded 18 years ago, this microbrewery is no stranger to the Singapore F&B scene. Most widely known for its huge variety of draft beers, Brewerkz has also been dishing up great American food - think huge burgers, beef chili and ribs. With 3 locations around the island, their fairly new 4th outlet at Orchard makes it even more convenient to get my burger and beer fix.
King Brew Burger ($36++) - two patties of beef with cheese, bacon, sautéed mushrooms and beer chili, served with a signature side dish of your choice
Burgers aren't meant to be dainty nor neatly layered, as much as McDonalds' ads would portray them to be. The King Brew is a fine example of a great burger - meaty, cheesy, and messy. With bacons, shrooms, beer chili and 2 huge-ass beef patties, it is a mighty delicious burger. There are many good burgers sold on this little island, but there aren't many as hearty and American as this gets.
BBQ Pork Ribs ($62++ for a full rack) - Tender baby-back ribs glazed in Brewerkz's chipotle honey BBQ sauce, then served with shredded slaw and a signature side dish of your choice
Basted in an amazing sweet and spicy BBQ sauce, these fall-off-the-bone tender ribs made for a wonderful lunch. I've not had much ribs so I don't know how good this is in the world of ribs, but Brewerkz makes a pretty damn good rack. The price is pretty steep for ribs, but given the portion and how satisfying the meal was it was fairly reasonable.
Side of Sweet Potato Fries at an additional $2++
Orchard may be a food haven with so many wonderful restaurants spread across the entire street, but it's not always the best place for hearty meals and great beer. With many other yummy American fare like their beer chili nachos, Brewerkz's new outlet is a wonderful addition to the food map in town. They'd definitely be seeing me quite often.
