Cook & Brew New Menu

There are restaurants that we return to because we love the ambiance, there are those that we return to because the prices are friendly, then there are also those that hold a special place in our hearts simply because the team of chefs and waitstaff are like friends to us.

Cook & Brew at The Westin Singapore is one of those places, and it is not your typical restaurant. It is a gastrobar, sitting high on the 33rd level and with a glimpse of the city from above, with an exuberant team who are ever passionate about their food and beers, and a comprehensive menu that covers your bar snacks, mains, desserts and all the beers that you can ever dream of.

A recent change of menu had us revisiting the gastrobar, and Chef Aaron has a lot to impress, indeed. On a side note, his humble personality and comical expressions make it so easy to like him. Hailing from Canada, this man is famed for making his own sausages and meatballs, and man, do we need those with our beers!

But of course, Cook & Brew’s new menu is so fascinating that you might just need more trips back to try everything. Here are some highlights from its revamp, and 12 star dishes that you definitely must try from Cook & Brew’s new menus:

5 Places to Eat At After Bare Your Sole 2014 Charity Barefoot Walkathon

Bare your sole 2014

Bare Your Sole 2014 is a barefoot walkathon that will be taking place at Gardens by the Bay East (Rhu Cross) on 12th July (9am – 12pm). Gather your friends to partake in this meaningful event and help raise funds for Habitat for Humanity Singapore’s Project HomeWorks (to help clean up the homes of the elderly poor living in 1 bedroom rented HDB apartments).

Not only is joining Bare Your Sole a good way to work out for a good cause, walking barefoot is also slowly becoming a big trend around the world. Research has shown that walking barefoot boasts many health benefits and one that we love is the increase of antioxidants through absorbing electrons from the Earth; keeping one even more connected to Mother Earth, literally speaking!

A day of fun, with food, music, games and entertainment awaits you, and the 2.5km/5km walkathon will be nothing short of fulfilling your needs – spiritually and physically. Sign yourself up now at www.bareyoursole.org.sg!

Cook & Brew Gastrobar The Westin Singapore

Cook & Brew

Beer? Checked. Meats and sausages? Checked. Pasta and local delights? Checked. Wines of The World? Checked.

That is Cook & Brew at The Westin Singapore for you. The comforting gastrobar is a star addition to our local dining scene, one that has earned our loyalty with its extensive menu and addictive relaxing vibe. The cosy interior furnished with oak browns and wood elements is very much like a typical German living room where you can enjoy your comfort food and chill out with friends and families. Over good beers too, of course. There is a whopping 104 beers from 18 countries to choose from!

Cook & Brew westin Singapore

Unpretentious. Fuss-free. Chic. Sexy.

We love the huge space so much, though not as much as the chef who has recently put together a spanking new menu that leaves us mind-boggled and spoilt for choice so completely. And how can we not shout about the unobstructed view of the Marina, again?

Cook & Brew at The Westin Singapore www.facebook.com/thewestinsingapore opens for the whole day, making it the perfect location for all occasions. Drop by during your lunch hour for a casual and relaxing meal, or pop by in the middle of afternoon to grab a beer and some light snacks. In the evening, it is a lovely place to have some pre-dinner drinks with your colleagues or friends before treating yourself to a well-deserved dinner.

Here, we share with you our picks from Cook & Brew’s current repertoire, and please do not leave without trying the German Platter. Yes, we mean it.
