Chye Seng Huat Turned Incognito At Sunset
I’m sure many of you are pretty familiar with Chye Seng Huat Hardware located at 150 Tyrwhitt Road near Lavendar Mrt for it’s coffee. But I’m pretty sure that many of you are not aware that Chye Seng Huat transformed into Incognito Bar at night from 6pm onwards. Yes, you can still can get coffee after 6pm but the star from 6pm onwards is the range of curated craft beers available at Incognito.
“Beerista” Casey who’s the man who curated the Craft Beer list over at Incognito Bar. Ask him anything about the craft beers and he will be your google for the night. (Beer related questions only!)
In Clockwise Direction: Wu Gang Chops The Tree Wheat Beer ($14), Orval Trappist Beer ($16), Founder’s Breakfast Stout ($20), Red Chair NWPA Beer ($14)
I was invited to a cosy Beer Tasting with a couple of bloggers and we have had a pretty good time trying out and learning more about the different craft beers and how it can pair with different type of food. Yes, you read me right. Pairing BEER with food, not wine. 😉
For those who really enjoy beers, you’re definitely in for a treat over at Incognito. Find out the what kind of beer person you really are with Casey’s help and with his recommendation, you will surely enjoy your drink.
My Favourite of the 5: Gunnamatta Yeastie Boys Beer ($18)
I would say I’m quite the alcoholic having worked at a wine bar for nearly 2 years and am quite the drinker. I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted the Gunnamatta Beer which is a fusion between tea and beer. It’s very refreshing and I was confused at first sip because it really do smells like a cup of good quality Earl Grey tea, in an alcoholic version. If you’re tea lover, now you can have the best of both worlds! Fret not, they have something called the Coffee Milk Stout if you prefer coffee instead.
Bangers & Fries ($16)
Bangers & Fries is recommended to paired with Wu Gang Chops the Tree Wheat Beer which is a very smooth and light beer. Very easy to drink, a little dry with a little fruity notes. There’s 3 kinds of sausage served and as I’m not a food expert I can’t tell them apart, but they are nice and juicy.
Roasted Sriracha Chicken Pizza with Bechamel Sauce base (New Menu)
This is a Sriracha Chicken Pizza with a white cream base that is not on the menu yet, and is recommended to pair with the Orval Trappist Beer which a little heavy on the taste. Definitely not for the light drinker but it’s an interesting drink with a wine like scent.
Granny Smith’s Pan- Grilled Pork Burger with Bacon-Onion Marmalade & Fries ($16)
I’m craving for this burger as I’m typing right now. The bread is nice and soft with a very juicy and flavourful patty. It’s paired with the Red Chair NWPA beer. It’s an ale, very easy to drink, smooth with hints of citrus and floral.
Fresh Battered Fish with Buffalo Spice Rub & Fries (New Menu)
Unlike the usual fish & chips, this is done with a mild spicy batter which is elevated with the Gunnamatta beer. Really nice combination.
Earl Grey Cheese Cake & Lemon Tart ($7 Each)
Desserts is paired with the Founders Breakfast Stout which is a fusion between coffee and beer. If you ate those coffee candy in the black packaging before you will get what I mean. The scent is intense but very easy and light on the throat.
