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!
