When it comes to anything related to beer, I have to salute Guinness Stout, or better known as Stout locally. They not only have a unique taste, but also rate among the best beer one can have. This Christmas, I think they are happy to announce the arrival of a new ‘partner’ to their long history of beer with the introduction of the Guinness Gravy.
I know.. Now you guys are probably going “Aaaahhh??” But I am serious, and I would easily rate the Guinness Stout Gravy above my favorite Black Papper Sauce. The combination of the gravy with a well grilled lamb proved fantastic with a pint of Guinness Stout. In fact, the Lamb Chop with Guinness Stout Gravy proved so delicious that Ron had to order another set to satisfy the hungry bloggers which consist of Irene, Anna, Amiey, Fahlee and I. Hasnol of Silhouette eventually had to add more gravy to our table because the gravy finished faster than the lamb =P Told you the gravy was fantastic!
Well, also in the dining list was Beef Stew which also came with a custom made Gravy of Guinness Stout, and despite the ‘spicy’ as in ‘herby’ taste, the beef was tender and soft. I admit, I am not hugely a beef person, but this dish must have something special to it, because I couldn’t keep my spoon out of the plate which had the Beef Stew.
I think, there isn’t much point for me to tell how the whole dinner was, because taste is subjective to an individual. But if you are craving Lamb Chop, and Beef Stew, why not head on to Silhouette at tHe Spring, Kuching and try out these two meals. The Lamb Chop in particular will not disappoint you, and the price is only RM35 per serving, and if I’m not mistaken it comes with a pint of Guinness Draught!! I think that’s cheaper than most places in town!
With that said, I’d like to thank SHIOK Magazine, Guinness and Silhouette for inviting me to taste out these two new additions to the Guinness family. And, just in case you were wondering, Silhouette opens from 11am-1am daily, but their kitchen closes at 10pm, unless you make special arrangements by calling +6082-232662. This Christmas main course will only be served until end of December 2009 (if I’m not wrong), so if you want to try the special Guinness gravy, go there fast.
