Thirty Six Brewlab & Smokehouse @ Club Street - A Celebration Of Craftsmanship in All Forms: Food, Art, Music And Beer


Thirty Six Brewlab & Smokehouse at Club Street features a 120-seat restaurant, a state-of-art on-site 500-litre microbrewery, and 23 taps pouring a selection of the finest craft beer. The menu here is centred around open-flame grilling on a custom-built brick hearth.


Fresh on draught are Lion Brewery Co’s flagship and seasonal brews, rotating guest brews from other local and international craft breweries, and a constantly changing lineup of beers brewed right on site at the microbrewery. Some of the beer highlights include Thirty Six Brewlab Lah-ger (craft beer4,8%), Lion Brewery Co Straits Pale Ale (pale ale 4.5%), Lion Brewery Co Kaiser Kolsch (pale ale 4.5%), Thirty Six Brewlab Olg Greg (session IPA 4.5%), Lion Brewery Co Island Lager (lager 4.5%), Thrity Six Brewlab Something Something (india pale ale 5.7%) and Thirty Six Brewlab Raspberry Beer-et (berliner weisse 4.6%).

Crispy Popcorn Chicken 4.2/5

The Crispy Popcorn Chicken ($9) is marinated in cider for a day and soaked in buttermilk for another day. Finally, it is sprinkled with chilli powder and togarashi for an addictive finishing — an ideal snack dish to go with a few glasses of beer.

Scotch Egg 3.5/5

The Scotch Egg ($10) here is slightly different with the use of impossible meat, coat in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. It is paired with housemade sriracha mayo sauce made with mayonnaise, lime juice and sriracha.

Grilled Black Tiger Prawns 4.5/5

Simply seasoned with sea salt and grilled over open flame is the Grilled Black Tiger Prawns ($20). Nothing fancy but just pure enjoyment of the fresh seafood with smokey aroma.

Spicy Pork Belly Satay 4.5/5

One of my favourite dishes is the Spicy Pork Belly Satay ($16), marinated in sambal manis. The rich flavour profile complements the tender pork belly excellently. In addition, the archar is a welcoming side to freshen up the palate.

Flat Bread 4/5

The Flat Bread ($14) is made from pizza dough using low in gluten flour. It is best enjoyed with the smoked baba ghanoush.

Wood-fried Cauliflower 3.5/5

Do you like your vegetable grilled? If you are, you may enjoy the Wood-fired Cauliflower ($25) rubbed with turmeric, ginger and black peppercorn. The cauliflower is first steamed before being grilled. The acidity from the dressing lifted the enjoyment of its crunchy texture.

Charred Romaine Lettuce 3/5

Another grilled vegetable on the menu is the Charred Romaine Lettuce ($9). The heart of the romaine lettuce is seasoned with oil, salt and pepper before being charred on an open flame. The smoked vinaigrette elevates the crunchy and refreshing romaine lettuce.

Mixed Cabbage Slaw 4.2/5

The addition of fresh green apple sticks in the Mixed Cabbage Slaw ($7) gives it an additional textural enjoyment on top of the sliced white and red cabbage, dressed in mayonnaise and plain Greek yoghurt. Definitely, one of the better slaws I have eaten.

Pork Chop 4.2/5

The huge Pork Chop ($36 for 300g) is grilled to a beautiful tender complement by the green parsley and caper sauce. It is paired with spiced pork crackling.

Sticky BBQ Pork Ribs 4.8/5

The finger-licking good is the Sticky BBQ Pork Ribs ($28 half rack/ $52 full rack). The fall of the bone pork rib is glazed with a sauce made from kicap manis, chipotle sauce and rice vinegar. Squeeze the lime over the pork rib to get a balance to the savoury burnt flavour of the tender meat.

Burnt Cheesecake 4/5

Given a local twist is the Burnt Cheesecake ($13) infused with Pandan flavour. It is served with raspberries and housemade coconut meringue.

With fresh beer and good food, Thirty Six Brewlab & Smokehouse is worth checking out. Hidden away at Mohd Ali Lane, off the main Club Street, it felt like I had walked into a restaurant in a foreign country.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
