The Market Grill
The Market Grill might be familiar to many along Telok Ayer Street as they’ve been around for many years. Meaning, they’re definitely doing something right. Designed like an “All American Diner”, The Market Grill exudes a casual atmosphere that serves honest and generous portions of food.
The secret behind their success? Definitely their charbroiler that utilizes charcoal to grill their meats. This gives their awesome wagyu steaks that nice smoky flavour and locks in the juiciness of the meat while possessing a well-cooked crusty exterior.
Farmer’s Hash, $24
Sweet Potato, Potato, Farmer’s Sausage, Caramelized Onion, Beans And Poached Egg.
The egg was beautifully cooked and after bursting that yolk, all that creamy goodness just spread out evenly throughout the dish. The portion was extremely generous but I honestly feel the price is a little steep, just a little.
Lobster Benedict, $32 / Salmon Benedict, $18
Poached Eggs, Hollandaise Sauce, Capers, Mixed Salad And House Dressing
THEY USE REAL LOBSTER MEAT! And it’s super sweet and fresh too! For $32? Now this is definitely value-for-money.
For its Salmon counterpart, they cure the salmon in house. This results in a less salty smoked salmon compared to what’s readily available in the market.
Lobster Roll, $52
Whole Lobster Deshelled with herbed pommery mayo mounted on a toasted brioche roll, topped with tobiko
This is definitely one of the stars of The Market Grill. They use a super fresh 500g (on average) whole lobster. The tobiko gives an added texture and there’s hints of mustard in every bite.
I’m also told that when it comes to lobster rolls, The Market Grill are the pioneers in Singapore and seeing as how long they’ve been around, I believe them.
Wagyu Tri Tip 200g / 300g , $49 / $65
Grain fed. Red Wine Jus Served With Onion Confit And Mash Potato
Their meats are all imported from Australia and definitely a MUST TRY. It’s so juicy and tender that you can even eat it without the red wine sauce! (Of course, with the red wine sauce, it just elevated the awesomeness of this dish). Like I mentioned above, the trick is their charbroil grill.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Yes for two reasons. The lobster and the steak. They’re reasonably priced for premium ingredients (especially that live lobster) and they taste so damn good! I would come back over and over again for sure!
