Tucked away within the Medical Alumni Association, the restaurant occupies a casual al fresco dining area by the pool (which is unfortunately not open to the public).
Guriru’s charcoal grill concept, launched by Anagram Food Lab and Chef Teppei Yamashita of Teppei fame, takes inspiration from the Japanese hamayaki, or fisherman’s grill. Take your pick of the freshest live seafood and the staff will grill ’em to perfection over an open charcoal fire for you.
Pop by during lunch from 12pm–4pm and choose from a selection of pasta and rice bowls including the signature Chirashi Don (S$18), Truffle Cream Pasta (S$8), and Japanese Curry Rice (from S8) with Pork Katsu, Chicken Katsu, or Mixed Vegetable Kakiage.
4pm is when the magic happens, and the grill comes alive.
Start the night on a high with a glass of prosecco and Hyogo Oysters (S$10 for 3pcs, S$19 for 6pcs) — you can choose to enjoy them sashimi-style with homemade ponzu sauce, or grilled with butter or original shoyu sauce.
Why not go all out with “oysters three ways” by also ordering the Kaki Fry (S$12 for 5pcs) and Guriru Oyster Rice (S$18)?
Other grilled specialities like the Half Shell Scallop ($10 for 3 pcs, S$19 for 6pcs), Whole Squid (S$16), and Meltique Beef (S$18) will take your charcoal BBQ experience to the next level.
Don’t forget to eat your vegetables — anything slathered in homemade yakitori sauce and kissed by the flames will taste great. Just order the Eggplant (S$9) or Burnt Round Cabbage (S$9) and you’ll see what I mean.
Don’t forget to order snacks like Fugu Mirin Boshi (S$14) and Kawa Ebi (S$10) while waiting for your mains. Here’s a tip: they all pair well with the restaurant’s eclectic selection of drinks.
Those who wish to spend the evening nursing a cold beer (or five) should make a beeline for the fusion bar food like Crispy White Bait (S$12), Beer Batter Fish and Chips (S$18), and Prosciutto Pizza (S$21).
Due to the limited seating, reservations are highly encouraged and can be made here.
Round up your most chill friends— a smoky and delicious hamayaki feast at Guriru in Outram Park awaits!
