Best known for its draft beers and cocktails, The Guild at Keong Siak Road has launched a new food menu featuring Asian-forward bites and plates to go along with its drinks.
First opening its doors in May 2018, The Guild is the first and only taproom by independent craft brewery Young Master Brewery outside of its Hong Kong headquarters.

The available selection includes 16 house brews with seven from its core range while the remaining seven are a rotation of limited-edition Young Master beers. Two taps in support of other breweries or collaboration drafts round out the collection of craft beers.
The drinks list has been expanded to include Draft Cocktails ($19, $24 upsized) on tap such as Higher than Salted Lime that offers a classic sweet-salty taste of Hong Kong from Young Master’s canned cocktails project and Guildhouse G&T using Greater Than gin, orange and grapefruit.
There are also seven signature cocktails centred around Asian flavours and beer elements such as Goslar Clover ($24), Plumsella ($25) and Red Date Redemption ($25).
Food at The Guild
However, it’s not just drinks at The Guild.
Head Chef and General Manager Alton Huang has come up with a menu to pair with the tipples.
Amongst the dishes we tried a media tasting was the Chye Poh Hummus ($13), an interesting localised take on the mediterranean classic, served with sourdough flatbread. This was a nice appetiser.
The Black Pepper Glazed Pork Belly Sando ($18), made with four-hour braised and pulled pork, was rich and flavourful.
Fish Fritters ($18) is The Guild’s take on fish and chips and would make a good portion for kids.
For something refreshing to balance off the flavours, the Cherry Tomato Salad ($15) did the job.
Larger plates are available too.
The Wild Mushroom Rice ($29) is where risotto meets claypot rice. Mixing in the yolk, the dish was temptingly creamy and delicious.
Named after The Guild’s Head Chef, Alton’s Fried Chicken ($30) is a half chicken that has been brined for eight hours before being battered and deep fried to golden perfection. It has a satisfying bite with a slightly spicy batter and lusciously juicy meat on the inside. Add a dollop of the ferment hot sauce for an additional kick.
For dessert, the Stout ‘N Coffee Tiramisu ($14) provided a satisfyingly sweet end to the meal.
