Gordon Grill @ Goodwood Park Hotel - Celebrating German Gastronomy In Commemoration Of The Hotel's 120-Year Legacy


In commemoration of Goodwood Park Hotel's 120-year legacy, embark on a German gastronomy journey at Gordon Grill to celebrate the occasion. Why German? It is because Gordon Grill is once known as Teutonia Club in the 1900s. The property was an exclusive enclave for German expatriates. Hence the restaurant has put together an exemplary selection of notable German dishes interpreted through modern European culinary style.


We have the Five-course Degustation Menu ($98++) which will be available from 22 August to 21 September 2020. Besides that, there is also a three-course ($68++), and four-course ($88++) set menus to cater for everyone's preference. We started the dinner with the chilled Truffled Capellini with Crab Meat and Caviar to whet the appetite.

Chilled White Asparagus, Dill Cured Salmon 3.8/5

Our first appetiser is Chilled White Asparagus paired with Dill Cured Salmon topped with mesclun lettuce and shallot apple vinaigrette. I somewhat can associate with the dish as my first trip, and first meal in Germany was white asparagus a few years back. Unfortunately, due to the supply issue, they have to use white asparagus from Peru, which is just as sweet.

Seared Atlantic Sea Scallops 4/5

The second appetiser is Seared Atlantic Sea Scallops paired with smoked Black Forest Ham and Brown Mushroom Ragout, held together in a creamy, lemony buttered hollandaise sauce. The dish combines the flavours of Northern coastal areas of Deutschland with that of the South.

Bavarian Sauerkraut Soup 4.2/5

The comforting Bavarian Sauerkraut Soup is subtly sweet, creamy with a well balanced tangy finish. The addition of potatoes, speck and creme fraiche provide the boast in flavours and textures.

Pan-seared Halibut Fillet 4/5

For the main course, the guest will have a choice between the Crispy Pork Belly or Pan-seared Halibut Fillet. I decided to have Halibut, which is popular seafood found in Northern Germany. The firm and buttery white fish served atop an appetising compote of Swedish turnip, leeks and potatoes.

Crispy Bavarian Pork Belly 4/5

I took a photo of the Crispy Bavarian Pork Belly, which my dining companion had. Ok, It is served with dark beer and caraway gravy, a classic flavours of Bavaria. I more than took a photo, I got to try a piece of it it. What I really enjoyed is the layer of airy, crispy crackling skin. The piece of meat was also cooked to fork-tender.


Wrapping up the 5-course degustation menu is the classic German Red Grits served with luscious bourbon vanilla sauce at the side and Dark Cherry Crumble Cheesecake with Hazelnut Ice Cream. Guest gets to finish their meal with a choice of Goodwood blend of coffee or fine tea selection. Guest may place their reservations online at or call +65 67301744 or email
