Walking under the sun and I was looking for a place for cold beer. Harry’s was the only beer place opened on a weekday in RWS Forum.
I quickly downed a pint before settling down to order, and by then I was semi-full to order a main course. So I just ordered wings to share.
Seafood Spaghettini (Mee Goreng)
Singapore Style Fried Noodles, Crispy Squid, Tiger Prawns, White Fish Fillet
My brother ordered this, thinking it was like regular Indian mee goreng. He was disappointed by the outcome, partly because he poured an obscene amount of ketchup on it before I could stop him.
Prawn & Seaweed Aglio Olio
Tiger Prawns, Seaweed, Freshly Cut Chilli
Princess grew a fondness to aglio olio recently and had been ordering it everywhere she went. She commented that this version was a bit spicy and too dry.
Beer Battered Fish & Chips
White Fish Fillet, Mushy Peas, Coleslaw, Spiced Fries
Everyone in my family has that one dish they would order every time we went to a Western restaurant and for my sister it was fish & chips. Too much batter, too little fish was her comments.
Spicy Chicken Burger
Spicy Marinated Chicken Leg, Jalapeño Cheese Sauce
Our helper and her McChicken.
Sriracha Buffalo, Harry’s Signature, Soy-Glazed
What’s bar food without the must-order wings. Three flavours were presented (4 pcs each) in the wings platter. Sriracha was like any other buffalo wings – tangy and spicy at the same time. While it was not crazy spicy like the hot wings of Korea, it still packed a punch. My favourite was the Harry’s Signature – tasted like prawn paste wings from tzechar stores but I was told no prawn paste was used in fear of allergens. Soy was just like your chapcai (economy rice) store fried chicken wing, my least favourite. I was surprised it came last.
It was kind of surreal walking around the Forum on a weekday of the school holidays without seeing crowds in this integrated resort. The pandemic has definitely took a toil on the hospitality industry, and it was so evident here at RWS. A lot of popular restaurants were closed, many attractions were scaled back, and others opened on alternate days or not at all during weekdays. So this place looked really sad.
It was on this backdrop that Harry’s (and many others in F&B) soldiered on. Many questioned the SG Gov intention and method of opening up, even at the expense of mass infection (community spread hit 1,000 mark two weeks after this visit). But without taking a controlled risk, we will never get out of it together. This was not like SARS, it will not go to zero cases. Let’s just live life as normally as we can, and first step, eat out and support your local and neighbourhood F&B.
