What’s cooking at CRAFT ?

The Full of Luck Club (Food Booth 2) is a progressive and new Cantonese kitchen serving authentic comfort food and lots of good luck!

Run by the team behind Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant at Sheraton Towers in Singapore, Full of Luck Club is due to open in April 2016 and presents a modern adaptation of what “Li Bai” has to offer in a fun, fresh and vibrant environment, reflecting the life of Li Bai, the poet, as a true bon vivant, with his poems celebrating the pleasures of friendship and the joys of drinking wine, all enjoyed over great tasting Chinese food.

The restaurant features an open kitchen with counter seating, a full bar set up exclusively serving Chinese craft beers, cocktails and premium loose teas, private dining, a speakeasy back bar and a street-side takeaway Bao Bar, taking full advantage of its prominent location in Holland Village and the adjacent MRT station.

The facade and its interior presents a sharp, sophisticated yet informal and fun design with a play on the Chinese propensity for fortune, luck and prosperity, where every meal at Full of Luck Club ends with a fortune cookie and a unique 4D number to send you on your way.

From the open kitchen configuration with its fiery woks on full display, chefs dish out signature tea-infused roast meats, fresh noodles, dim sum and crisp Chinese salads, as well as a good range of desserts. The bar provides late night diners with an extensive bar food menu to complement its exclusive range of bottled and draught beers.

A branded retail collection of purveyed loose teas are readily available for purchase over the counter along with “gai dan zai” or freshly baked egg waffles with flavors including melted cheese, creamy chocolate or sticky sesame.
At the upcoming Craft Beer Festival from March 4-6th, Full of Luck Club will be presenting a selection of delectable steamed and fried baos that can be expected on its Bao Bar menu, which includes a classic braised pork belly served with pickled lotus root, crushed peanuts, fried shallots and cilantro, a crispy kung pao chicken bao with a spicy Sichuan pepper sauce, a salted egg yolk prawn bao with fried curry leaves, a minced pork patty bao with white pepper sauce and pickled cucumbers, and a tea-smoked duck mantou bao with hoisin sauce, carrot-cabbage coleslaw and sliced spring onions.

Here’s a food and beer pairing idea.

Brewerkz (Food Booth 1), an internationally respected operator of restaurants and microbreweries, is one of the region’s largest craft brewers. Since 1997, the concept specializes in classic American styled food and award winning handcrafted beers. Founded in Singapore, the establishment was the brain-child of American born Mr Devin Otto Kimble and Daniel Flores.

The design of all Brewerkz restaurants are strategic with creative and attractive designs that exude a sporty, masculine and industrial feel. Guests can engage in conversation with a pint in hand along corrugated zinc decked bars. For that industrial loft feel, colors of blue and grey or silver are used extensively throughout the premises. Finally, to ensure an inviting environment and relaxing atmosphere, wood and appropriate mood lighting are added. Don’t miss out exclusive sports memorabilia, merchandise and beer posters adorned on the walls!

At CRAFT Singapore Brewerkz will be serving a Brewerkz Berger, Fried Chicken Burger & Fries.

 

Here’s a Food & Beer pairing idea.

Brewerkz Fried Chicken Burger with their very own Single Hop Mandarina Bavaria. The toasty notes of the ale will compliment the crisp breadcrumbed batter of the chicken while the clean hop finish will help lift the oil from the frying off your pallet, refreshing it ready for the next bite.

What’s cooking at CRAFT?

The Butchers Club (Food Booth 5) launched in April 2013 in Aberdeen (Hong Kong) as a simple old butcher’s shop,  a private dining room and a space for cooking classes. It is the masterpiece of a group of passionate chefs and butchers who together have created a truly unique concept based around high quality dry-aged beef.

Their beef was sourced from a partner’s farm in Australia and aged in their own temperature and humidity-controlled dry-ageing facility in Hong Kong.

The Butchers Club now has outlets in Tin Wan, Wong Chuk Hang, Wan Chai, Central & Wong Chuk Hang and has been listed in the 2016 Hong Kong Michelin Guide for their excellent street food.

BlackBettyIn late 2015 their first overseas outlet opened in Singapore. Look out for “Black Betty” (their unmissable food truck) at the CRAFT Festival Village.

At CRAFT Singapore The Butchers Club will be serving up their Butchers Dawg, Dry-aged Steak Sandwich & Hog Town (beef, bacon & pulled pork burger).

 

Here’s a Food & Beer Pairing idea?

Dry-aged Steak Sandwich & Rogue Ales Hazelnut Brown Nectar (From Beerstyle Distribution, Beer Booth V); enjoy the subtle interplay of the sweet notes of the Hazelnut Brown with the caramelized charring of the grilled dry-aged beef. Sweet temptation !

First-ever craft beer festival in Singapore: drink down quality ales, lagers, ciders at this pop-up event in 2016. 

Fancy a pint? Head down to Marina Bay in March 2016 for brews from Archipelago, Brewerkz, Little Island Brewing Company and more…

To many, a pint of beer is equivalent to a trusty best mate – an unconditional companion to perk you up (or a source of solace for drowning your sorrows) for the day ahead. As such, the activity of ale or lager appreciation is no light matter; so much so, that we’ve seen a healthy surge of craft beer culture in the past few years. Naturally, we expect many beer connoisseurs to be hopping mad upon hearing this announcement: Singapore is launching its first ever craft beer festival come March 2016!

But if you ask us, browse through all 25 booths of specialty beers ’til you’re tipsy; we’re sure you’ll be tempted by some new tipples.

Oh, so you’re thinking that people would probably be embarrassingly sloshed and you might wanna leave the kids at home? Worry not, ’cos CRAFT Singapore 2016 promises to be family-friendly with activities that even your young’uns can enjoy (and no, we don’t mean having a ‘sip’). Aside from beer and gourmet delicacies from local restaurants, you’ll also find fringe day and night activities like masterclasses, live musicians and DJs, and other kid-friendly antics such as balloon-sculpting and face-painting. Just remember: you’re the adult here, so drink responsibly!

What’s Cooking at CRAFT?

Park Bench Deli (Food Booth 4) started as a side project, back when the owners were fancy chefs who came home hungry after 12-hour shifts, craving simple grub done right.

They started by making the sandwiches they wanted to eat, but couldn’t get in Singapore. Big kid sandwiches, decadent over-the-top creations they could barely fit in their mouths.

They were too good not to share, so the chefs started selling them at pop-up events and from the back of food trucks. They learned how to make our own pastrami and pickles, and tried fifty different recipes for fried chicken! Finally they were ready to open shop.

The Telok Ayer storefront is styled on the American deli, but they do sandwiches from all over. Really, they’ve only got two rules: do it big and do it right.

At CRAFT Singapore the guys from Park Bench Deli will be serving up a grilled Jamon & Cheese sandwich and Kong Bak Rice Bowl …and for those of you not in the know, Jamon is cured Spanish ham – yummy!!

Here’s A Food & Beer Pairing Idea:

Jamon & Cheese sandwich & Estrella Galicia Lager (available at Beer Booth F, Eastory Asia); the crisp, clean lager will cut nicely through the decadent layers of ham & cheese.

Sorry, Wine. Beer Might Actually Be Better for Women’s Health

To read the full article click here (Full credit to “Pure Wow”)

It’s always a tough call: Are you in the mood for wine or beer? Sure, it depends on the occasion, but according to a study analysis in the Natural Medicine Journal, if you’re a woman, beer may be the better choice.

Here’s why: As we age (gracefully), preserving our bone density and protecting against osteoporosis becomes a top priority, especially for women. Sure, calcium chews and supplements are solid options for prevention, but it turns out a pint of beer–rich in silicon, an element that’s essential to our bone structure–may be a better source when it comes to fending off bone breakage because it’s much more easily absorbed.

For example, in one study researchers found that participants absorbed 64 percent more of the silicon found in non-alcoholic beer compared with only 4 percent of the same compound found in bananas (a common source of silicon for women).

Even more interesting, the hops and flavonoids in beer can actually slow the release of calcium from the bones. A win-win.

So drink up–in moderation, of course.
