Picture this: you’ve just got off a long flight and there’s only one thing on your mind — a hearty BBQ feast.

If you can’t be bothered to travel to the likes of Tanjong Pagar, here’s where you can easily satisfy your cravings for grilled meats without even leaving the airport!

NY Chargrill is a farm-to-table restaurant that prides itself as the first-ever woodfire Western barbecue spot in Jewel Changi.

It’s like stepping into a “modern barnhouse” of sorts, set against the backdrop of the iconic Rain Vortex.

Diners have to grill their own meats over charcoal, but you can take things up a notch by choosing from a selection of five different types of wood (S$5 per 30g) apple, cherry, hickory, pecan, and mesquite — each offering a distinctly unique flavour and aroma.

You’ll also notice plenty of Korean and Japanese influences, most notably in the form of refillable appetisers like kimchi, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes in sesame sauce, and potato salad.

Whether you’re in the mood of beef, pork, chicken, or seafood, all meats come accompanied by a selection of a la carte sides, salads, skewers, pastas, and more for a complete barbecue dining experience.

If you opt to go a la carte, you’ll get to choose your preferred meat and cut in 100g or 200g portions, along with the option of forking out an additional S$4.90 for two sides of your choice.

As excited as I was for the Wagyu Steak (from S$25 for 100g), it was tender and fatty, but otherwise unremarkable, flavour-wise. I recommend just sticking to the Beef Short Plate (from S$6 for 100g), Beef Prime Ribs (from $15 for 100g), or Iberico (from S$18 for 100g).

Otherwise, those seeking a hassle-free dining experience can choose from a curated selection of set meals (from S$10.90) offered in 100g, 200g, or 300g portions. Each set meal also includes a choice of soup, rice, or sides.

Beef lovers can make a beeline for the Trio Set Premium (from S$16.90 for 150g) comprising skirt, prime ribs, and thinly sliced brisket. You can enjoy on ’em on their own, or create the perfect bite with the raw garlic slices, sesame oil, ssamjang, and sides.

Those who prefer sticking to one cut of beef have options like the Beef Prime Ribs Set (from S$20.80 for 100g), Wagyu Oyster Blade Set (S$29.80 for 150g), and Wagyu Short Plate Set (S$29.80 for 150g).

Pork eaters have only two options to choose from: the Pork Belly Premium (from S$13.90 for 100g), comprising pork belly and iberico pork jowl, or the Pork & Chicken Set (from S$14.90 for 100g).

But if you’re a non-meat eater, the Seafood Set with tiger prawns, squid, and scallops, will set you back S$39.80.

Speaking of sides, we got to try the Soybean Paste Soup (S$5), Coleslaw (S$5), and Mushroom Tempura (S$5), which could’ve benefited from a dipping sauce, but it was the unassuming Kimchi Mac & Cheese (S$5) that stole the show for me.

For some reason, it paired really well with the Grilled Pork Skewers (S$5/stick), boasting unctous layers of fat, juicy meat, and a nicely charred exterior.

These are joined by the likes of other grilled items like Grilled Padron Pepper (S$4.50/stick), Corn Elote (S$6/stick), Grilled Tiger Prawns (S$19), Grilled Iberico Pork Jowl (S$25), and even Grilled Tuna Salad (S$18) for the folks who need their greens.

You can even pair your meats with a la carte mains like Burratina with Romesco (S$20), Karaage with Kabayaki Mayo (S$14), and Sakelala (lala in sake broth, S$10.80).

If you’re planning on imbibing in a draught beer, cider, or glass of wine, look no further than the crunchy Tempura Young Corn (S$12), which I must say, were sweet, a little spicy, and very addictive.

All is also well and good on the carbs front, so you can slurp up handmade pasta dishes like Crab Tagliolini (S$19), Truffle Mushroom Risotto (S$15), and Beef Bolognese Rigatoni (S$15). I personally wouldn’t pair pasta with BBQ, but you do you.

I do find the concept is a tad muddled, given how heavy the Japanese, Korean, and Italian influences are — NY Chargrill is supposed to be a “woodfire Western barbecue” spot, after all. However, we can totally see it being a hit for those dining in a group composed of vastly different palates (and picky eaters). There’s something for everyone here!

And of course, it’s hard to go wrong with the value-for-money sets, which are definitely the main draw.

Keen on a grillin’ good time? Reservations can be made here.
