Grains & Hops – National Day Menu Available Till End August, Look Out For The Super Creative Prawn Noodle Croquette
Located on the 10th floor of the luxury airline travel themed YOTEL Singapore, Grains & Hops has released their National Day menu and I think they pretty much hit the nail on the head with this one.
Available till 31st August 2018, Singaporeans will have a pretty long window to try some of these amazing local inspired dishes. Pair them dishes with Grains & Hops’ very own brew of craft beer – with its light fruity notes and slightly bitter aftertaste, knocking back a couple of pints will definitely be a pleasant experience.
Chilli Crab Rillette, $16
Chilli Crab is definitely a no brainer when it comes to local Singaporean cuisine. They are extremely generous with the fresh and tender crab meat and I must say that they’ve got the sweet and rich Chilli Ccrab flavors down to a T. The rice cracker gives this dish a nice crispy textured bite and definitely something new to me. I’m more of a mantou (Chinese steam buns) kind of guy when it comes to Chilli Crab.
Oyster Omelette Cracker, $13
The element in this dish that brings everything together is that sweet and sour chilli sauce. It tones down the strong seafood essence that comes along with oysters (especially when they’re fried). The tapioca crackers were light, crispy and extremely satisfying. This makes for a good accompaniment all types of alcohol. No I’m not an alcoholic.
Prawn Noodle Soup Croquette, $14
This is definitely my all-time favorite for their National Day Menu. It’s a croquette but the magic is WHAT’S IN THE CROQUETTE. You’ll find a tantalizing broth of pork bones and prawn stock just waiting to attack your taste buds as your teeth breaks into the crispy exterior of the croquette. It’s GENIUS! But do let it cool for a couple of minutes upon serving. Like a xiao long bao, it can burn you if you’re too impatient. I recommend asking your friends to test the waters first (that’s what I did). Oh and to top it all off (quite literally) there’s a pretty big and fresh prawn for each ball!
Kaya Cream Mochi, $12
I thought this was going to be super sweet but nope, it actually sat pretty well with my not-so-sweet palate. That chewy mochi textures go extremely well with that light kaya cream. Who would have thought?
