Tilly's @ Keong Saik Road - Bringing Authentic Irish Gastro Pub Experience to Singapore



Irish Chef Andrew Walsh, known for his Michelin-starred restaurant CURE, introduces an authentic Irish gastro pub experience to Singapore with the newly opened Tilly's. Formerly located in East Coast, Tilly's has found its new home at Keong Saik, taking over Butcher Boy Bar & Grill. The revamped Tilly's presents a refreshed menu of signature Irish gastro pub fare and Chef Andrew's favourite comfort food, inspired by his roots and home kitchen.

Natural Irish Oysters with Black Vinegar Mignonette 4/5

Natural Irish Oysters with Kilpatrick Sauce 4.2/5

We kicked off our meal at Tilly's with the Natural Irish Oysters, paired with Black Vinegar Mignonette ($3/pc) and Kilpatrick Sauce ($4/pc). Sourced from Chef Andrew's hometown of Achill Island, County Mayo, these oysters deliver a fresh taste of the sea. The Black Vinegar Mignonette provides a tangy twist, while the Kilpatrick Sauce offers a classic Irish blend of barbecue, tomato, and tabasco.

Irish Oyster Omelette 4/5

An innovative take on the local oyster omelette, the Irish Oyster Omelette features fresh oysters topped with tarragon, avruga caviar, and a medley of chives, apple, and celery remoulade torched to perfection.

Irish Soda Bread 3.5/5

The traditional Irish Soda Bread ($14) makes an appearance, accompanied by a spread of grilled cheddar cheese rarebit and mustard, imparting a delightful smoky flavour.


Beetroot Cured Salmon with Potato Flat Bread 3.8/5

The Beetroot Cured Salmon ($26) showcases plump Irish salmon, delicately cured in beetroot and accompanied by apple celeriac remoulade. Served alongside potato flatbread, diners can enjoy it as an open-faced sandwich by placing the beetroot-cured salmon on it, creating a harmonious blend of flavours and textures.


Wagyu Beef Cheek & Guinness Pot Pie 4.2/5

Colcannon Mash

Elevating the classic pot pie, the Wagyu Beef Cheek & Guinness Pot Pie ($36) features tender wagyu cooked in Guinness beer paired with creamy Colcannon Mash — a comforting Irish staple.

Tilly's Wagyu Burger 4/5

A highlight not to be missed is Tilly's Wagyu Burger ($32), which boasts a juicy wagyu patty topped with Irish cheddar cheese and bacon and served with crispy fries. Throughout March 2024, enjoy the burger at half price in celebration of St. Patrick's Day.

Signature Sticky Toffee Pudding 4.2/5

Grilled Tipperary Brie Cheese 3.8/5

Indulge in the Signature Sticky Toffee Pudding ($16) for a sweet conclusion, accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Opt for the Grilled Tipperary Brie Cheese ($18) paired with apricot jam, truffle honey, and crackers for a delightful mix of sweet and savoury.

Wildfire Burgers @ Robertson Walk - Gourmet Burgers at Affordable Prices


Wildfire Burgers, located in the heart of Robertson Walk, has emerged from a revamp with a brand new menu that not only elevates the dining experience but also reinforces its status as a go-to destination for gourmet burgers, succulent steaks, enticing sides, and a diverse drinks menu. With the closure of its other outlets, the Robertson Walk flagship stands as a beacon for those seeking a delicious yet affordable gourmet burger.

Wedge Salad 3.5/5

Kicking off our dinner, we delved into the Wedge Salad ($13), a refreshing ensemble of iceberg lettuce dressed in creamy parmesan sauce. Topped with crispy bacon, cherry tomatoes, Spanish onions, crumbled blue cheese, walnuts, and crushed Kampot peppercorn, it's a firework of flavours that complement the crunch of the iceberg lettuce. The marriage of textures and tastes offers a delightful start to the meal.

Salt & Vinegar Fried Onion Rings 3/5

The Salt & Vinegar Fried Onion Rings ($8) aimed to reinvent the classic, infusing extra saltiness and tanginess. While the intention was commendable, it fell slightly short of expectations. Thicker onion rings might enhance the sweetness of the onion, aligning better with taste preferences.

Golden Chicken Nuggets 4.2/5

The Golden Chicken Nuggets ($8 for 6pc/ $10 for 9pc) emerged as a clear favourite. A classic elevated to gourmet heights, these nuggets, made with 100% chicken, were served with a delightful array of sauces: Japanese Curry Mayo, Nacho Cheese, or Chipotle Mayo. The pairing with Japanese Curry Mayo is particularly recommended, surpassing expectations and outshining similar offerings from an 'M' brand restaurant.

Truffled Mushroom 4.8/5

The Truffled Mushroom ($18 Single/ $22 Double) stood out among the eight gourmet burgers. Nestled between butter-toasted brioche buns, the stone axe wagyu patties delivered a burst of flavour. Truffled mayonnaise, sautéed mushrooms, Monterey Jack cheese, beer-pickled onions, and master sauce formed a symphony of taste. The judicious preparation of the wagyu patty, allowing for a chunky bite, added to the allure.

Hot Honey Butter Chicken 4/5

For those eschewing beef, alternative options like Ottoman Lamb, Black Halibut, and Hot Honey Butter Chicken burgers await. The Hot Honey Butter Chicken ($18 Single) presents a generously sized, hot and spicy fried chicken thigh adorned with whipped Sriracha honey butter and crispy bacon. Sandwiched between butter-toasted brioche buns and drizzled with master sauce, it provides a spicy symphony for the taste buds, delivering crunch and flavour in every bite.

Wildfire Burgers at Robertson Walk has not just reopened; it has rekindled a flame, offering a gourmet burger experience at affordable pricing that tantalizes the senses and sets the stage for a delightful dining experience.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
