Gerry’s Grill will bring Filipinos closer to home. From the restaurant ambiance to its menu, everything is inspired by casual Filipino cuisine and hospitality. With two locations, Gerry’s Grill Singapore is aimed at catering to as many diners as possible who are looking for affordable Filipino food.
- Grilled dishes marinated in traditional Filipino spices: Even back in the Philippines, Gerry’s Grill is widely known for its grilled pork and seafood. You wouldn’t probably leave the restaurant without having a taste on their Pork BBQ which is dressed in thick sweet and spicy sauce. Grilled Squid is soft and chewy to the mouth, you won’t have a hard time eating it the same with the Pork Liempo. Typical Filipino condiments are available so make sure to mix your own toyo-mansi (Soy sauce and Philippine lemon) sauce.
- Superb a la carte menu: If you crave Filipino viand more than noodles and vegetables, Gerry’s Grill has Sisig, Grilled Chicken, Pork BBQ, Kare-Kareng Baka (Beef Stew with Peanut Butter), and the Chicken & Pork Adobo on ala carte. But a Filipino food dining experience wouldn’t be complete without rice, so a variety of rice (steamed, adobo, or garlic) is also available for less than S$2.
- Pinaputok na Cream Dory: Price starts at S$11.95, this unique Filipino dish is a sure winner for Singaporeans and the Pinoys. The dory fish is wrapped and steamed in fresh banana leaves so it tastes scrumptious and looks healthy; a must for the health-conscious. To add flavour, fish is also topped with onion, leeks, and tomatoes.
- Esplanade branch is open ‘til 2AM: Late diners may grab a quick dinner at Gerry’s Grill Esplanade. It is also perfect for those who might want to cap off their day with a few drinks.
