George Town – Festive Delights and BBQ Skewers [MEDIA INVITE]

BBQ Skewers @ George Town
George Town Tze Char & Craft Beer has launched their festive delights and BBQ skewers menu. This delicious menu will pair nicely with their Craft beer on the tap from Brewlander, bottled craft beer from Japan and UK, fine wines and award-winning sake and gin. Their signature mix includes the Chendol Gin and Rojak Gin.

Festive Dual Flavoured Turkey 
Festive Dual Flavoured Turkey (Deep-Fried Turkey and Braised Turkey with Guangxi Sauce) - $28. Surprisingly tender, succulent and un-turkey like. It tasted similar to big size chicken and it is not gamy. The deep-fried turkey reminds me of the Hainanese pork chop, with ketchup on top. Meanwhile, the Guangxi sauce is made from Chinese chives and ginger, has a nice aromatic flavour.

Metal Jacket Drumlets ($18). Coated in sweet and savoury sauce, these sexy drumlets are a great dish for your meal or a great nibble to go with your beer and drinks. Though it is covered with aluminium foil, you will still get some sauce on your fingers. Allowing you a finger-licking good moment.

Garlic Fried Tilapia ($35). The fish is deep-fried till crispy and covered with spicy and aromatic garlic. The flavour is bold, strong and spicy. LD enjoy the crispy tail and fins, while I prefer the flesh. I find the sauce is too spicy for me, however, it is suitable for spicy food lovers.

Hotplate Black Pepper Wagyu with Parmesan Butter ($28). There is an old school feel when beef is served on a hot plate. I like the tenderness of the wagyu with black pepper sauce. However, I feel the parmesan butter is a bit over the top. You got a lot of flavours going on the plate, but it just covered the true taste of the beef. Another option is to serve / offer an option to serve this dish with mantou or bread, so it can be used to dip into the gravy.

Penang Fried Kway Teow ($10, Small). LD and I had their Penang Fried Kway Teow on a few occasions. Surprisingly, this dish is just getting better and better. You get the Wok Hei, followed by smooth and silky rice noddle and coated eggs. Yummy.

George Town Choy Sum ($12). Sweet and crunchy Choy Sum, cooked with oyster sauce and topped with fried shallots. A simple vegetable dish, executed spot-on.

George Town also launching their BBQ skewers menu, where the meat and vegetables are marinated with their secret rub and bbq to perfection. We were served Wagyu Beef ($5), Mutton ($1), Beef Tongue ($3), Pig Intestine ($2) and Taiwan Sausage ($2) for the meat. For the vegetable Potato ($1), Brinjal / egg plant ($2), Mushroom ($2), Asparagus ($2) and Long Bean ($2).

Vegetable BBQ Skewers
Our pick from the skewers are the wagyu beef, mutton and beef tongue get our thumbs up. The meat is slightly charred, juicy and succulent. The seasoning is not a strong China’s lamb skewers marinate, instead, it has a hint of Nanyang curry flavour in it. The vegetable will need some improvement on the presentation and bbq timing.

Located at Boat Quay area, with a view of Singapore iconic river and the Parliament House, George Town Tze Char is a great place to enjoy your evening. I am impressed with the creativity of Charles (the owner) that keep coming with new dishes, especially the turkey dish.

Overall, it was a pleasure returning to George Town to try their new dishes. Turkey with Two Flavours, Metal Jacket Drumlets and Garlic Fried Tilapia are good. While their signature Penang Fried Kway Teow is just getting better and better. If you are around Boat Quay area, check out George Town Tze Char and Craft Beer. Cheers!!
