Gordon Grill @ Goodwood Park Hotel - Celebrates Diamond Jubilee


Gordon Grill, nestled within Goodwood Park Hotel, holds a special place in Singapore's culinary history as the city's first grill room in the 1960s. Celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, Gordon Grill marks this milestone with a month-long celebration from 1 to 30 July 2023, offering exclusive anniversary deals and showcasing a selection of updated nostalgic creations from its past menus.


The 60th-anniversary celebration at Gordon Grill is not to be missed, as it provides an opportunity to experience the timeless elegance and exceptional cuisine that has made the restaurant an institution in Singapore's dining scene. Whether you're a long-time patron or a newcomer, this anniversary celebration is a perfect occasion to indulge in the legacy and tradition of Gordon Grill while savouring the finest culinary offerings.

Scottish Smoked Salmon 4/5

The Scottish Smoked Salmon ($32) is a delightful appetiser showcasing a whole slab of magnificent fish carved tableside. Served with accompaniments like capers, onions, chives, and lemon, each delicate slice of smoked salmon delivers a burst of rich flavour.

Cockie Leekie 4.2/5

The Cockie Leekie ($17) is a traditional Scottish soup that pleasantly surprises with its hearty and comforting qualities. Prepared by simmering barley, chicken, and leek in a peppery chicken stock for two hours, this unassuming soup becomes a wholesome addition to the meal, offering warmth and nourishment.

Seafood Bouillabaisse 4.5/5

Seafood lovers will relish the Seafood Bouillabaisse ($48), a flavorful stew brimming with Hokkaido Scallops, Tiger Prawns, Mussels, Clams, and Threadfin chunks. The depth of flavour in this dish is achieved through the meticulous process of simmering fish bones, shrimp heads, and scallop trimmings with saffron for at least 12 hours. For an elevated experience, adding a spoonful of homemade rouille into the soup infuses it with a creamy, smoky, and garlicky flavour profile.

Flambe Steak Diane Tenderloin 4.2/5

The Flambe Steak Diane Tenderloin ($78) presents a timeless classic that has delighted generations. Using USDA Black Angus Tenderloin, this dish is pan-fried and flambeed tableside with a splash of brandy, then adorned with a tantalising mushroom sauce. Served with a side of mashed potatoes and vegetables, each bite of this tender and juicy steak is a testament to the quality of the beef.

Chicken in a Basket 4.5/5

Surprisingly, the menu at Gordon Grill includes more than just steak. The Chicken in a Basket ($38) showcases the restaurant's versatility. This popular dish, originating from the 1960s, features a half-spring chicken marinated in buttermilk, coated with a seasoned flour and spice mixture, and deep-fried to perfection. The result is tender and juicy meat encased in a delightful crunchy skin. Accompanied by sides of sweet corn pancakes, banana fritters, and grilled garlic-butter corn on the cob, this dish is a delightful departure from the steakhouse norm.

Bombe Alaska 4.2/5

When it comes to desserts, Gordon Grill doesn't disappoint. The Bombe Alaska ($20) is a multi-tiered confection that combines a mixture of raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and mango sweetened with brown sugar, folded into vanilla bean ice cream, and layered between fluffy vanilla sponge cake. The entire creation is then enveloped by a meringue that resembles a snow-capped mountain. As a visual feast and a treat for the taste buds, this dessert is a delightful way to end the meal.

Cherry Jubilee 4.5/5

The Cherry Jubilee ($24) is another show-stopping dessert prepared a la minute in front of diners. Sweet dark pitted cherries are cooked in a pan laced with butter until slightly softened, then flambeed with brandy. The cherries are then paired with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream and sprinkled with almond flakes. Simple yet deliciously satisfying, this dessert showcases the natural sweetness of the cherries and creates a delightful contrast of flavours.

Gordon Grill's 60th-anniversary celebration presents an opportunity to indulge in a selection of nostalgic dishes that have stood the test of time. With their commitment to quality ingredients, impeccable cooking techniques, and warm service, Gordon Grill continues to captivate diners with its classic and enduring culinary offerings.
