Cool American Barbecue Joint In Upp Thomson Serves Good Brisket & Smoked Banana Tart
Two of the chefs here used to work at three Michelin-starred mod European restaurant Zen.
In late April, three chefs joined forces to open an American-style barbecue restaurant named Social Smoker in the quiet residential estate of Sembawang Hills in Upper Thomson – the outlet used to be occupied by Sin Ming Roti Prata. Neo Chee Yong (who goes by Neo, middle in pic), 35, first picked up smoking skills from a pitmaster in San Francisco about eight years ago. His chef pals and partners, Emil Ess (left in pic), 33, and Kevin Tan (right), 28, worked at some of the best restaurants in Singapore, including three Michelin-starred Nordic restaurant Zen. At their new smokehouse, the trio dish out a robust menu of starters, sandwiches and tacos on top of the usual suspects – beef brisket, pork ribs and pulled pork, as well as classic cocktails, craft beers and desserts.
