Chums, located along Bukit Timah Road is a casual restaurant that offers a variety of favorite dishes from head chef David Ang, who returns to Singapore after cooking in private kitchens abroad for the past 18 years (including for former US president George W Bush and Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich).
For 7 of us, our ED ordered 2x Salad to or a start; 2x Fish & Chips, A Full Slab of Ribs & 2x Beer Chicken (or rather, Beer Butt Chicken in the US). Haha.. yes, your eyes are not playing trick on you. It's Beer Butt Chicken! So why is the dish called Beer Chicken & what's so special about this dish?
Beer Chicken (Beer Butt Chicken) served with special Red Wine Sauce
Can you see what's sticking at the butt??
haha... yes! it's a can of Tiger Beer!
The can of beer is supposed to keep the chicken moist while it gets roasted in the oven. The Chicken is so tender & well roasted I think I can eat the whole chicken on my own! It doesn't really have the beer taste & it goes perfectly with the special red wine sauce.
But what do you with the can of beer? Well, you can drink it if you dun mind having oily beer..
One point to note: This dish is only available for dinner, but the guys at Chums will be willing to get it done for you during lunch, upon request. Do allow 30mins of preparation time thou =)
