Chicken nanban? Well, not round these parts. These are @beerbasketkatong Buttermilk Fried Chicken Bites, which go for twelve bucks before the tax & service charge kick in. Yes, they look exactly like chicken nanban, but they are slightly different. The mayonnaise at the bottom does not contain bits of hardboiled egg, but instead features chopped jalapeños for a subtle sour & spicy flair to the otherwise bland mayo.⠀

The little bird bites are plenty piquant on their own. Chicken thigh is the juiciest part of the bird, and the bird that day was a juicy one. The buttermilk that they’ve been marinated in helps to enhance the tenderness by breaking down any tough fibres, and forms the base coat on which the batter adheres to. The layer of buttermilk marinade traps the juices & moisture within the batter, maximising the juicy factor. They are a little under-seasoned when going solo, but the creamy, slightly spicy & zesty mayo adds an alluring new dimension to the flavours of this piquant plate of ascended pub grub.⠀

The spicy chicken drumlets ($11++) are more sticky than spicy, but they are definitely delightfully delicious. Sure, they’re diminutive, but these petite flavour care packages are positively perfect beer bites. Juicy, salty, slightly sweet & spicy, these can and will easily drum up lots of cash for Beer Basket. Yes, some of that cash in the register is undoubtedly mine.⠀⠀

Mucho gracias for the hospitality, @beerbasketkatong & @burpple!

The last time I paid a visit to @beerbasketsg, they only had the one outlet in Kovan, and their claim to fame food wise was having sambal stingray on the menu. Now, they’ve got bigger, swankier digs in Katong, and their new expanded menu has a whole lot more bar bites, and some new mains.⠀

One of their newer options for pub grub is this towering serving of portobello mushroom fritters ($11++). Chonky chunks of portobello ‘shrooms are cased in a thin layer of breading & deep fried for that glorious golden brown crust. The mushrooms could and should definitely be sautéed dry, or dehydrated in another way, to extract some water from the portobello before deep frying. Currently it’s a bit too moist, and the overly wet shrooms do obfuscate the luscious lemon & garlic aioli. Still a decent option when the beer munchies hit.⠀

Thanks for having us, @beerbasketkatong & @burpple!

Who'd have thought you'd find pasta this delicious at a craft beer bar? Generous chunks of hand-picked crab claw flesh and fiery bits of chilli flakes are entangled in the mess of linguine sauced in an aromatic chilli sesame oil , ensuring burning flavour with every mouthful. The shrimp are plump and juicy as well and complement the pasta perfectly.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @beerbasketkatong for the hospitality!
