Garang Grill: Fuelled by Fiery Passion!
Many folks love food, but one guy is simply obsessed with it – and that’s none other than chef Jeremy Cheok! Armed with a fiery passion for food, and one very hot oven, Jeremy heads Garang Grill, a joint venture between Jeremy’s restaurant Slake and famed zi char establishment New Ubin Seafood.
Garang Grill: Meat the Chef
One look at Jeremy’s résumé, and we’re blown away – he’s worked with Kum Kee Roast Meats, Coriander Leaf, Artichoke, and now, he is part of the management team of New Ubin Seafood.
On top of his professionalism in the culinary realm, Jeremy has also done some pretty crazy things for his love of all things delicious! If there’s any guy who would spend 5 whole months on one epic food journey across Europe, it’s Jeremy.
That wild, adventurous spirit is what underscored the birth of Garang Grill, a pop-up neighbourhood grill concept in collaboration with New Ubin Seafood. Though originally slated to end its run in late-June 2017, it was then extended due to overwhelming popularity.
The Mibrasa Oven: Putting the ‘Garang’ in Garang Grill!
Making meat marvellous is no mean feat, and Garang Grill is dedicated to serving up flavours that are strong, bold, and ‘garang’ (which means ‘fierce’ in Malay)! The secret to that is… an oven?
Except this is no ordinary appliance – it’s a Mibrasa oven, a Spanish-made charcoal grill oven, which blazes at a scorching 500 °c! The extremely-high temperatures ensure that each steak comes out of the Mibrasa oven beautifully seared on the outside, and oh-so tender on the inside.
Garang Grill’s USDA Prime Rib-eye Steak: Simply Gorgeous!
As a pop-up establishment, Garang Grill’s menu may change from time to time, but their signature USDA Prime Rib-eye Steak is a mainstay in the menu, and a firm favourite with diners.
First of all, this is one beautiful steak to look at! It’s served on a chopping block – no distractions, just that gorgeous hunk of steak, in the middle of the block, with bordelaise butter on the side. It was even carved up in chunks, so all we needed to do was eat!
The extremely high temperatures of the Mibrasa grill oven gave the steak a wonderfully-browned appearance, with boldly-seared edges. It had an intense, smoky scent (thank you, charcoal!), and each bite was incredibly tender, bursting with juicy flavours.
Accompanying each order of beef is a side of Garang Rice, which is Jeremy’s take on New Ubin’s renowned Heart Attack Fried Rice. Like the original, it’s cooked with decadent beef fat, but Jeremy added aromatic chilli padi to the fried rice, which gave it a new twist that we enjoyed.
Kick off your garang beef adventure with the USDA Prime Rib-Eye Steak at $18.00/g (400-600g, weight subject to availability), which comes with a serving of Garang Rice (150g).
Keeping the Charcoal Burning at Garang Grill
For those of you hankering for rib-eye steak that tastes as gorgeous as it looks, you’ve gotta hurry, because Garang Grill is slated to end its run at the end of September. If you aren’t an Eastsider (like your North-dwelling author here), this is one Epicurean experience worth venturing to the East side for.
So don’t wait any longer – swing by Garang Grill now, before it’s gone!
EDIT 01/10/2017: According to their Facebook post on 1st Oct 2017, Garang Grill is HERE TO STAY at their 15 Swan Lake Ave premises – permanently!
Here is the full quote, in case you can’t see the embedded Facebook post:
The end of September marks the end of the 6-month pop-up, but it also marks the beginning of the transition from pop-up to permanent!
Yes folks, thanks to all of your support, feedback and encouragement, we are proud to say that Garang Grill is here to stay.
Here’s to keeping the arang burning, and we look forward to more delicious dining experiences with you.
