Five Marbles Craft Beer – Unique Beer Infused Local Dishes
Taking over Courtyard of Rendezvous Hotel is Five Marbles Craft Beer Restaurant. Rejoice beer lovers, for 4 men have united in their love for craft beer to bring diners a curated selection of beers on tap, and local cuisines infused with flavoured craft beers. The concept of the restaurant is inspired by the founders’ background in beer brewing and cooking. They believe that infusions of liqueur and alcohol into their main courses would evoke a richer and more robust flavour.
Note that there will be no food served from 2.30pm to 6pm but you can still enjoy your afternoon booze if you’re in the mood for some good craft beer.
One of my absolute favourite beers is the Gosnells, which is a type of Citra Sea Mead ($6 for half pint, $12 for full pint). Your taste buds would almost certainly yield a sweet and salty sensation, which is a result of blending honeys fermented with lemon peel, tarragon and sea water. A unique selling point of Five Marbles is their Young’s, which is actually a Double Chocolate Stout made from combining chocolate malt and real dark chocolate. The Zeffer ($6 for half pint, $12 for full pint) is essentially a red apple cider that combines flavourful and aromatic red apple varieties. If you’re looking for a full-bodied beer, you should pick the Lost Coast – an Indica India Pale Ale (IPA) that has a good amount of bitterness.
It’s time for some of their craft beer infused dishes. I’ll recommend the Beer Braised Pork Belly Linguine ($19) – linguine cooked with a chocolate stout-infused sauce with pork belly that has been stewed and braised for days in craft beer. The pork belly is seared prior to serving to give it a char. As you bite into it, you’ll find the pork belly satisfyingly fatty and juicy. If you find the taste of alcohol too subtle, you can pair the Pork Belly Linguine with a glass of Young’s.
We also tried the Portobello Chicken Cheese Baked Beer Rice ($16). The staff shared that the ingredients within the baked butter rice, such as the shredded chicken and mushrooms, were actually cooked with Lager. However, I couldn’t really detect the taste of alcohol in the dish. I did find the rice moist and somewhat delicious when mixed with the cheddar.
With the complementary mix of beers and food offerings, beer lovers are sure to return. If that isn’t enough to keep you coming back, the affordable prices will! Every now and then, new beers will pop up on the menu so stay tuned! I am definitely looking forward to their beer floats. Think Chocolate stout with dark chocolate ice cream omg? If you aren’t a fan of beer, you should really try the Gosnells!
