The RawR Kitchen – Comfort Food Paired with Craft Beef [MEDIA INVITE]

Welcome to RawR Kitchen

The RawR Kitchen is a Microbrewery cum bistro located in the new industrial area of Bukit Batok. This Micro Brewery is the home base for On Tap Fresh Brew Craft Beer, which is known for their English Bitter brew, a heavily hoppy incarnation of an under-appreciated beer style.

Brewing On Tap Craft Beer

Notice from these water taps, oopps, I mean beer taps, Currently, there are 11 different type of craft beer: Root Beer, Seasonal, Wheat Beer, Orange Cider, Cranberry Cider, Brown Ale, Pilsner, English Bitter, Dunkel, India Pale Ale (IPA) and Stout. Alas, it not due to my medication, I will definitely gulp some of those beers. Anyway, for the beer review, check out the review by Ai Ling here.

The Craft Beer Selections

Root Beer (Adult Version) - Ai Ling choice

We started with Carbonara Spaghetti ($13). A nicely presented spaghetti with the touch of raw egg finishing on top. The pasta is al-dente, while the sauce is creamy and robust. The raw egg added a touch of silkiness to the dish, while the prawns gave the dish a brainy and crunchy texture.

Bolognese Spaghetti ($11) is a must try dish here. The bolognese sauce made from trio mince meat (pork, beef and mutton) plus beer, stir and simmer continuously for 5 hours. Resulting in a ragu that will make an Italian Nonna proud. When you bit into the al dente pasta, you will notice the soft texture of the meat that just melts in your mouth. Topped with finely shaved parmesan, this dish is just yummy.

As the salted egg craze engulfed the whole Singapore, I will feel a bit apprehensive to try any dish made from salted egg. However the Salted Egg Wings ($7 for 3 pcs) is definitely a ease to my fear. The fresh chicken wings are fried to crisp before coated with salted egg sauce. According to the Chef, they mixed the salted egg with tofu to create the thick yet velvety texture to the sauce. Let's just say the next time I come here, this will be the second dish that I will order.

Though we only tried three dishes, we can see that the team really put a lot of effort in the food. Starting from mid-June, RawR Kitchen will install a new grill and I am so looking forward to see what other dish they are coming up with.

The Drinking Menu

The décor of the place is “Raw” industrial minimalistic. It is kept as simple as possible, but the cosy ambiance, friendly staff and the alcohol are the characters of this place.

The only setback about this place you will have a bit of problem locating it. It is at the back lane of Bukit Batok Crescent, between The Elitist and Unity Centre. Once you enter The Splendour compound, it is the first building on the left, on top of the Japanese restaurant. Hope you find this hidden gem.

On the weekend, check out their Beer Buffet. $35 nett for 2 hours of free flow of their craft beer.

Overall, the RawR Kitchen is truly a hidden find. The food and drink is just great and it is definitely worth the trip to the west side. Cheers!!

Thank you very much for the RawR Kitchen team for the tasting invitation.
