KT’s Grill is one of the two fine-dining options available at Universal Studios Singapore (USS) and can be found in the New York zone at the park (the other being Hollywood China Bistro which is located at the Hollywood section of the park).
The restaurant has two levels and diners who are seated on the upper floor can see the chefs at work in the open concept kitchen, located at one end of the dining area.
As there are many pillars in the restaurant and you may not be able to attract the attention of the service staff, this gadget which can be found at each table proved to be very useful. ^_^
Now for the F&B part….. Here are some of the items available on their menu:
Rising Star ($10++) – Watermelon Syrup, Mango Juice, Orange Juice and Sprite
It was a nice blend of the watermelon syrup and the juices and none of the flavours stood out and overpowered the other so the combination was just right!
Studio X ($10++) – Cranberry Juice, Apple Juice and Honey
I felt there was too much cranberry in it and this tasted like cough syrup to me (but some people may like it?).

If you like soups, only “Soup du Jour” (Soup of the Day) is available on the menu and we tried the following two soups on separate occasions:
Clam Chowder (with bits of chorizo) – Delicious!
Lobster Bisque ($10++) – This soup was nice and flavourful but there was nothing to chew on except the croutons which were a little soggy. It would have been perfect if it had some visible lobster flesh in it.
Cajun Chicken burger (with cheese, lettuce, tomato and 3 slices of Japanese cucumber) and waffle fries – I don’t usually like burgers but this was really good!
Beer-Battered Fish and Chips – My hubby liked this but I think I’ve tasted better in Sydney, Australia. (Sorry, but my tastebuds have been spoiled! LOL..)
Baby Back Ribs ($29++) – This was different from the versions with barbeque sauce which you can find at other restaurants. The sauce was sweet and a little tangy and the meat could easily be removed from the bone. Although didn’t quite have the “wow” factor to me, it was tasty and I may consider ordering it again on subsequent visits.
Braised Beef Short Rib Rigatoni ($27++) – The beef was tender and overall this dish was quite nice but I thought the portion was a little small.
Banana Macadamia Pie with Crunchy Peanut Butter Ice Cream ($14++) – This was the highlight of my meal!! The pie was nice and the fragrance of the banana overwhelms your tastebuds with every mouthful. The peanut butter ice cream was smooth and tasted really good and the crunch came from those crumbly things which were sprinkled around it. There was also a sour and tangy sauce which can tease your tastebuds in case you start to tire halfway through the dessert.
If you want to have a nice and relaxing proper sit-down meal at the park without anyone hovering around your table and waiting for you to vacate your seat, this definitely makes a change from the other casual dining options found around the park.
