The Entertainer Official Launch Party with McGettigan's

With 14 outlets in various parts of the world, McGettigan's only outlet in Asia lies in Singapore. Since April last year, the Irish Bar is famous among expatriates in providing the modern Irish experience. The kitchen team at McGettigan’s cooks up classic dishes such as the Irish Stew, Beer Battered Fish and Chips, the ‘Full Irish’ Breakfast. Signature McGettigan’s favourites include the ‘Buffalo Hot Wings’, ‘Atlantic Salmon’ and ‘Beef and Guinness Puff Pastry Pie’. Read more to find out about McGettigan's 1-for-1 promotion.

The Malt Room at McGettigan's

There are two entrances to the Irish Bar— one with a staircase that leads to a private room, called 'The Malt Room'. This private room provides a space for after-work drinks, leaving parties and social corporate gatherings and celebrations. There is not a single corner of McGettigan's where it is not decorated. From ceilings to floorings, the grandeur of the pub is lavish and posh. Thank you Rachel for inviting me to join The Entertainer's Official Launch Party!

Satay Chicken skewers, peanut sauce

Satay Chicken skewers with peanut sauce Singapore

"The satay is really good," I told the other bloggers who were sitting next to me. After gobbling down my first stick of satay, the entire bowl is gone! This is pure evidence to show how good the satay is — tender chunks of flavourful chicken meat with the fragrance of the grill.

Mini Beef Sliders

"You must try the beef sliders, they're the best," says Sophie, Business Development Manager of McGettigan's. It doesn't look like the best, but the burger bun was so soft and fluffy. I would say that this is pretty much comparable to the beef burger I ate at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant, because the texture of the beef is quite juicy, densed and compressed. The sauce definitely helped to increase the flavour profile as well.

Roast beef is one of my favourites. Gently rolled in charred peppers, the thickness of each beef slice is pretty much consistent. It has a smoky flavour, with spikes of fresh sweetness in each bite.

Mushroom with Truffle Oil

McGettigan's Clarke Quay

The mushrooms with truffle oil weren't part of the tasting menu— it must have been pretty impromptu on the chef's part. I would love to think that it is the real truffle mushroom, though the hint of truffle fragrance faded away immediately after chewing on the dish. Unfortunately, the mushrooms weren't as crispy as we've hoped!

Mini Beef Chili Nachos

This is great— great for soccer games, great for parties, great for any social settings. I've never enjoyed a theatre session of picking up some nacho chips, dipping them in avocado and mayonnaise and dumping a whole load of beef chili like this. It was pretty addictive —I had to grab a hold of myself for gobbling them all.

Assorted Macaroons

Strawberry, Lemon, Chocolate Macaroons
I wished I could try all the flavours, but I only managed to get my hands on the lemon macaroon. It had a really strong citrusy taste compared to the light biscuit. Nevertheless, it is a sweet way to end the evening!

McGettigan's exudes that vibe of grandness and mystery, so it's not the place where one would expect to dress down and chill. A slight disadvantage of the place for photographers, bloggers and Instagrammers is the lighting— like all pubs, the ambience is quite dark and it's difficult to take good pictures! Nevertheless, it's the experience that matters.
