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

Wuerstelstand @ 7 Stars Coffeeshop (Dover Crescent) - The Last Sausage Kiosk Before The Equator


It is rare to find an "Ang Mo" running a food stall and it is even rarer to find an "Ang Mo" selling sausages. Erich's Wuerstelstand used to be located in Chinatown. Many fans of its sausages were disappointed when he decided to call it a day. However this was temporary, Enrich decides to reopen the stall at a new location, moving into a coffeeshop at Dover Crescent.

Sausages Snack Platter 4/5

We started with the Sausages Snack Platter ($16) to have a bit of everything. It comes with 4 different types of grilled German sausages with condiments, sauerkraut, pickled chilli and pickles. It is understand that Enrick does not made his own sausages but this is supplied by a German company that produces quality pork sausages.


By the way, Wuerstelstand only sells pork sausages. There is no chicken or beef sausages here. However he offers a variety of pork sausages. For our snack platter, we had Bockwurst - no cheese smoked pork sausage, Kaesekrainer - smoked pork sausage with cheese, Bratwurst - traditional grilled german pork sausage and Spicy Chorizo - spanish style with paprika. My favourite is the Kaesekrainer with its oozing cheese in between and hint of smokiness.

Sauerkraut, Pickled Chilli and Pickles 4.5/5

The snack platter also comes with Sauerkraut, Pickled Chilli and Pickles. I really applaud the thought from the chef. While I think most people may not appreciate it but I love it. This is probably how we can experience the authentic way of appreciating Austrian cuisine.

Meatloaf Sandwich 4.2/5

While browsing the menu, I noticed an item that I have not tired or even seen in Singapore before, the Meatloaf Sandwich ($5). Three thickly sliced grilled meatloaf is sandwiched between a crispy bun. It is then dressed with mustard and tomato sauce. The crispy bun maybe a bit hard for some but I enjoyed the chewy bite. Paired with the grilled meatloaf which tasted somewhat like luncheon meat, it complemented excellent with crispy bun.
