A NEW LOCATION AND CONCEPT FOR IRON SUPPER CLUB
Iron Supper Club gets a new home at Jalan Wangi and now serves an array of pork-centric dishes
Iron Supper Club helmed by chef Heman Tan has found a new home at Jalan Wangi. Aside from a new location, the establishment also sports a brand new menu featuring an array of pork-centric dishes such as BBQ Iberico spareribs, grilled ton toro pork jowl steak, and grilled Bulan pork tomahawk.
Sharing his thoughts on the restaurant’s new direction, Tan says, “I saw a demand for non-Japanese restaurants that specialise in pork dishes, hence I decided to change the concept of Iron Supper Club to focus on serving different parts of the hog.”
Pork enthusiasts will be delighted with chef Heman’s scrumptious new offerings, such as the grilled ton toro pork jowl steak, the 14-day dry-aged pork loin that is served either grilled or tonkatsu-style; and the BBQ Iberico sparerib boasting succulent and fork-tender meat. For those with bigger appetites, they can try the signature Bulan pork tomahawk tonkatsu, which is coated with fresh breadcrumbs and deep-fried to golden perfection. Crispy on the outside but juicy and tender on the inside, this dish is a sure winner. If you prefer to have your pork grilled, go for the siganture grilled Bulan pork tomahawk, served with Asian mala sauce, scallion dressing, cilantro chilli sauce and garlic crisps. What makes Tan’s dishes exceptional is the combination of great produce combined with excellent cooking techniques.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Tan is always on the lookout for opportunities to upgrade his skills to better serve his customers. Besides this, Tan is also passionate about sharing his experiences. Find out more on article (www.wineanddine. com.sg/2018/10/22/chef-heman-tan-e2i/).
