It’s time to plug that frustrating leak in your wallet – the one that puts the $ in “Friday night drink$”, the one that happens before you try to hit f.Club or Attica. You shouldn’t have to go broke while having a good time at Clarke Quay, and thanks to establishments like Shui Gastrolounge, you don’t have to!
Those familiar with the Clarke Quay area will recall the noise of pubs trying to outdo each other with bigger sound systems and patrons trying to holler over said music. Thankfully, Shui Gastrolounge excuses itself from all that. Comfortably located on the first floor of Clarke Quay Central, the 1,500 square feet restaurant/bar sits on a stunning piece of real estate.
A couple of steps will get you to Clarke Quay MRT station, while a couple more will bring you to the rowdier buckle of Singapore’s Drinking Belt, along with some of Singapore’s hottest nightclubs.
Since opening late last year, Shui Gastrolouge has developed a Pan-Asian inspired menu that features local favourites (with a twist) and contemporary regional delicacies that reflects the colourful diversity of flavours and cultures within the region.
With set lunch ($11.90) and dinner ($18.80) sets going at ridiculously attractive rates, missing out on this offer will be your loss. Check the full list of deals and promotions at the end of this article! For now, take a peek at the deliciously rich Pumpkin Soup and Chicken Salad that we had:
We also tried the 3 mains available. The Char Siew Chicken is a tender piece of meat slathered with sweet Char Siew sauce. Interestingly, it also contained notes similar to the savoury black bean sauce (豆瓣酱) so loved in Chinese cuisine.
The Dory Fish with Black Pepper Sauce was nicely balanced, with a heat that’s just right for a meal with a beer in hand. The Beef Ribeye was also a delight, with its flavour delicately brought out in the medium rare doneness that we requested.
The pretty Insta-worthy dessert came in the form of a brownie/ice cream mashup served in cocktail glasses. Great for pictures but take care to hold the glass well; cocktail glasses aren’t known for being the most stable of dining utensils.
