10 MUST-TRY DISHES AT SENTOSA GRILLFEST — THE HOME EDITION

What to eat when you dine-in or order delivery, from the variety delicious grilled eats available during 29 Oct - 22 Nov 2020

Sentosa’s popular food extravaganza, GrillFest 2020 is back again with lots to eat, and a brand new format. Bearing the government regulations and safe distancing in mind, this year’s Grillfest is the HOME edition.

From 29 October to 22 November 2020, grillfest-ers will be spoilt for choice with a mouth-watering selection of dishes from some of Singapore’s leading chefs, participating Sentosa restaurants such as Rumours Beach Club, Trapizza, and gourmet grilled dishes from Angliss Singapore.

How to eat? There are dishes available for dine-in, delicious treats available for doorstep delivery, and lots of D-I-Y and virtual fun via demos and live classes.

Here’s a sneak peek of the dishes on offer, and from the huge variety on the menu, these are the 10 absolutely must-try dishes available

Best seafood dish | Trapizza’s Garlic Chili Gamberi

Although this beachside restaurant is famed for their wood-fired pizza and child-friendly nosh, their Grillfest special is the grilled sustainably-sourced tiger prawns in a simple and delicious basil pesto sauce with burnt lemon and sundried tomatoes. If you dine-in, the laidback beach vibes, salty air and all come for free, but the dish itself is priced at $28.

Best meat dish | Singapore Chefs’ Associations’ BBQ Pork Rib with Asian Slaw

Many of the restaurants on this list are not new to regular diners, but for a chance to sample a dish that is not available at any restaurant, and prepared by top-notch chefs, order one of the offerings by the Singapore Chefs' Association; such as this dish by Eric Neo, Executive Chef of InterContinental Singapore, and SCA president. The half slab portion of the BBQ pork ribs is excellent value for $18. Sticky-sweet and grilled to perfection, it is paired with an Asian-style slaw that cuts the richness and balances the flavours perfectly. Available for home delivery only.

The most 'gourmet' dish | Angliss’ Grilled Winter Hamachi Collar

From fine food purveyors such as Angliss, expect nothing but the finest ingredients and gourmet produce. Available on the delivery menu is a dish fit to be served at fine restaurants. The winter hamachi collar is simply grilled over coals, resulting in tender and flaky fish, that is then simply served with fresh lemon, allowing the fish’s richness to be perfectly balanced. For $15 a portion, this is also a great value dish.

Sentosa's newest beach club with its three swimming pools, VIP Area, Cabana Area, Beachfront Area, Indoor Area, Outdoor Area and Alfresco Area is the best spot to head with a group (of no more than five) for so many reasons — the Jimbaran Seafood Platter ($159) of Balinese flavours is the perfect share plate, piled high with grilled jumbo prawns, bamboo lobster, red snapper and squid are served with tomatoes, basil, long beans, and sambal.

Best meal with a view | Skypark Beach Club by AJ Hackett’s Burgers

The ultimate beach bar, with a view that is to-die-for, is the Skypark Beach Club situated at a thrill-seeker’s favourite Sentosa spot — the AJ Hackett Bungy. Watch people leap off the 47m tower while you tuck into the Grilled Chicken or Grilled Beef burger layered with cheese, tomatoes and greens nestled between a fluffy brioche bun, topped with their special homemade sauce. Priced at $18 each, these are available for dine-in and delivery.

Best customisable meal | eM By the Marina’s Better Burger

The least you should expect from a Grillfest is that they grill up some of the finest burgers on the island. This Sentosa Cove spot is serving burgers just the way you like them. The burger itself is a 100% Beef Patty with mustard sear typically served with melted Gruyère cheese, sautéed onions, pickles, fresh lettuce, ketchup and sandwiched in a mayonnaise toasted brioche bun. However, you can opt to double or omit most of the ingredients and add sauteed mushrooms, a fried egg and jalapenos. Served with a side of house-seasoned skinny fries, this meal is priced at $19 onwards, and available for dine-in and delivery.

Most sustainable dish | Sentosa Golf Club’s Sustainable Grilled Seabass

This dish ticks all the right boxes. The seabass has been farmed from local waters, using sustainable practices. It is grilled to perfection and served with a cabbage slaw and fresh lemon. Fresh and delicious, and incredibly good value for $20 for the whole fish. For delivery only.

Best twist on a local favourite | Good Old Days' Lobster Hokkien Mee

A crowd favourite at previous Grillfest editions, this upscale version of the good ol’ Hokkien noodles is available for dine-in only at One Faber Group’s Good Old Days, a halal-certified restaurant. A half-lobster is served with flavour-packed yellow noodles, rich with prawn stock, squid and fish cake, and comes with sambal belachan and lime ($20). Shiok to the max!

Best dish to pair with wine | OLA Beach Club’s Breaded Uni with Caviar and Roasted Lime

It may be the Grillfest ‘HOME’ edition, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be fancy and pair your delivery meals with the finest wines you have in your stash. Ola Beach Club has a dish that would rival those from the fanciest tapas bars. Here gourmet sea urchin has been breaded and fried, and further topped with caviar and roasted lime. This would make an excellent pairing with a crisp white wine. Cheers!

29 Oct - 29 Nov 2020

Most IG-worthy dish | Good Old Days' Bamboo Nasi Lemak

Another exciting dish is the dine-in only local favourite, the one-metre-long nasi lemak at Good Old Days, a halal-certified restaurant. This is a whopper of a dish, where rich coconut rice is served in a metre-long hollowed-out bamboo with sides like braised lamb rendang, lobster meat, crispy fried chicken, sambal egg, ikan bilis, roasted peanut crackers and four cups of lemongrass pandan drink. This is $88 and serves four.

If you prefer to order in, smaller portions of the bamboo nasi lemak served with either fried chicken or lamb rendang, plus all the usual nasi lemak accompaniments are available for $25 a portion.
