Guriru @ Alumni Association Medical Centre (SGH) - A Hidden Charcoal Grill Seafood Concept By Teppei Inspired By Japanese Hamayaki


Hidden inside Alumni Association Medical Centre at Singapore General Hospital is Guriru, a charcoal grill seafood concept by Chef Teppei Yamashita and Anagram Food Lab. Inspired by Japanese Hamayaki, the menu features a wide range of seafood, meltique beef and kurobuta pork, accompanied by homemade sauces to ensure the best quality and taste.



The al fresco seating at Guriru surrounds the Alumni Association medical Centre's pool. It is ideal for gathering with friends and families, chilling at the pool over drinks and barbeque food.


Hyogo Oysters 4/5

We kickstarted our meals with the Hyogo Oyster ($10 for 3pc | $19 for 6pc). Customers can have it raw with homemade ponzu sauce or grilled with butter or original shoyu sauce.

Whole Squid 4/5

Grilled to perfection is the Whole Squid ($16). It is succulent and tender, with a delightful bouncy texture. Give a squeeze of the lemon to perk up the flavour.

Black Tiger Prawn 4/5

Grilled over charcoal, it imparts a beautiful smokiness to the Black Tiger Prawn ($6.5/pc | $25 for 5pc) on top of the aromatic garlic butter.

Half Shell Scallop 3.8/5

For the Half Shell Scallop ($10 for 3pc | $19 for 6pc), customers can have a choice of ponzu or butter grill. I went for the ponzu tartness to complement the shellfish.

Unagi 3.8/5

The Unagi ($22) is something uncommon for the grill paired with spring onion and wasabi.

Popcorn Chicken 4/5

One of our favourites is the Popcorn Chicken ($12) under the bar snack menu which is perfect for a couple of drinks. The chicken is crispy and succulent, drizzled with homemade mayo.

Chicken Thigh 4/5

Kurobuta Pork Belly 4/5

For the meat lovers, we have the tender and juicy Chicken Thigh ($12) in yakitori sauce, followed by the Kurobuta Pork Belly ($12) that has been slow-cooked for 4 hours, finished with yakitori sauce.

Guriru Oyster Rice 3.5/5

For something more filling and substantial, go for the Guriru Oyster Rice ($18). The Japanese rice is slow-cooked in a special housemade sauce, topped with hyogo oysters.


Nestled in an intimate and cosy setting, the restaurant has a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere with a pool view, making it the perfect spot to unwind after a long day with friends and loved ones. In addition to delicious seafood, there are bar bites and an eclectic drinks menu.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
