Club Meatballs revamps menu, millennial chef from New York helms kitchen

September 8, 2018 Dining No Comments Email Email

Club Meatballs, a restaurant,  café, bar, wine cellar and co-working space at the heart of the CBD is pleased to announce a  new chef on board and with that a revamped menu featuring modern comfort food favourites and delightful permutations of the humble meatball. The all new menu, designed by millennial chef La Mei Mei from New York, haralds in a new chapter at this three year old restaurant.

Chef Mei, 28,  born and bred in the east coast of New York city, of Vietnamese and Malaysian descent, grew up helping out at her parent’s Japanese restaurant and in cafés in New Jersey. Realising that F&B is her calling, she enrolled and graduated from The Institute of Culinary Education (NYC) in 2013 and consequently joined chef David Bouley at famed 12-seater kaiseke Brushstroke on Hudson Street before opening Shangri-La restaurant and lounge in Chelsea.

Armed with ten years of professional F&B experience and a feature in the Epoch Times (NYC), chef Mei moved to Singapore a year ago, lured by her dream of working in Asia. Her speciality is in Pan-Asian cuisine and she hopes to serve “food that makes people happy”.

Meatball heaven is right here in the heart of the CBD. Shining the spotlight on baked meatball dishes from different cultures but with a modern twist, be sure to try their Ginger Pork Ball Lettuce Cups ($14), Mac and Cheese Balls ($12), Club Meatball Pizza ($22), healthy meatball wraps ($12.50-$13.50) and a to-die-for Shepherd’s Pie ($18) that is currently the most popular item on the menu.

A trip to Club Meatballs is not complete without The Baller Platter ($25-$35) which comes in a choice of signature balls – classic beef, ginger pork, garlic thyme chicken, cumin spiced lamb, panko crusted fish, tofu and mushroom; served on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes and topped with a selection of sauces of your choice – tomato, garlic aioli, mushroom, red wine onion gravy or pesto. Great for sharing and a delicious accompaniment with drinks.

Besides the meatball staples, the extended bar bites menu and main dishes feature noteworthy comfort food such as Cup of Chili ($10), Beer Braised Short Ribs slow-cooked in San Miguel  dark lager ($28) and panko breaded Chicken Schnitzel ($22).

The breakfast menu presents a good mix of healthy options such as avocado and fruit toast. But for those looking for a bigger breakfast, the meatball Shakshuka ($17.50) with meatballs, runny eggs and feta cheese is a real crowd pleaser.

Great drink deals at Club Meatballs are hard to beat and a mainstay at Club Meatballs. The wine cellar at Club Meatballs is an intimate space perfect for cozy catch ups or small corporate meetings. With wall to wall bottles of wine ranging from $29 – $259, there is a wine to suit every occasion. On Wednesday ladies night, 1 for 1 refreshing Aperol Spritz go down easy at $15. Additionally, groups of 4 ladies enjoy a complimentary bottle of champagne to help kickstart their evening. Throughout the week, jugs of Pimms and Aperol go for $45, perfect especially for a slow Sunday brunch tipple. Happy Hour on weekdays are from noon to 2pm and 4 to 8pm and Friday all night from 4pm. Bottled beers start from $9++ and buckets from $40++.
