Beef lovers have probably heard about Fat Cow, especially for their famed set lunches which include the popular Beef Donburi. Having heard much about it, we decided that we have to make our way down to try it out for ourselves! The plus point about the set lunches are that they are also available on weekends. 


Set lunches are served with Salad, Miso Soup and Chawanmushi, as you can see from the photos below. We felt the salad and miso soup was nothing out of the ordinary. The Chawanmushi was actually quite good. 
 

We tried 3 different items on their set lunch menu. The first is the famed Fat Cow Donburi. It consists of char-grilled wagyu beef with onsen egg and thinly grated japanese leek. Everyone agreed that it lives up to its name. The onset egg was really one of the best onsen egg I've tasted because it is so perfectly cooked. The wagyu was almost melt-in-the-mouth with a tinge of charcoal fragrance.

If you love foie gras, you've got to try the Fat foa-gura don. It is glazed foie gras with grilled wagyu beef. They added some pickle to it for a balance of flavours.

For those non-beef lovers, there are also other choices such as Chirashi Don (Mixed sashimi don), Tonkatsu Don as well as Gindara Miso Yaki seen below. The Gindara Miso Yaki is miso marinated cod filet. It is quite fresh and done quite well, preserving the natural fish oils in it. Personally, I feel that the highlight is still their wagyu dons.

Overall, we felt that food was the Fat Cow Donburi was the winning point with service on the slow side as it was pretty crowded on a weekend. The ambience was not bad as tables were partitioned for some privacy. Do get your tables reserved beforehand to avoid disappointments on weekends!

The Food The tip is to go for the Set Lunch at Fat Cow, which range from $30+ to $40+ depending on the dish. I feel that the set lunch is more value for money than the mains (which is at 50% with the Entertainer App), as it comes with chawamushi, salad, miso soup and ice-cream at the end of the meal. If you are feeling rich, there is nothing to stop you from ordering the famous Japanese Wagyu beef here, which ranges from A3 to A5 grades.
The Fat Foa-Gura Don is highly recommended for Foie Gras lovers as there is a generous serving of the fat foie gras with grilled wagyu beef cubes. It was almost an orgasmic explosion for the palate when I was eating the foie gras and beef cubes together with the don.

Most people go to Fat Cow for the lunch sets because they are cheaper and deemed as more value for money. However, the real deal lies in the dinner options. No doubt it is pricier than the lunch menu but the quality of the food definitely justifies it. 
While we ordered a few sides to share and these were delicious, the real star was the wagyu. We ordered 300g of A5 wagyu, the highest quality, and chose to have it served as a steak (you can choose to have it in shabu shabu as well but we believe the best way to enjoy a good piece of steak is by itself). The steak was perfectly marbled and cooked to medium rare, just as we have requested. Each bite was like a party in the mouth as the texture of the steak complemented its fats which melted away in our mouths. Tender, juicy and very flavourful. A definite must try for all steak lovers.

If you go to Fat Cow, you have to order the steak. And please, order the A5. There are a few reviews who says that it's overpriced for steak but they did not mention which grade of steak they had ordered. Perhaps the lower grades are not as nice or value for money, but I guarantee you, the A5 is. No regrets on spending that amount of money. 
The other dishes were amazing as well. For more details and photos, visit http://onefatsheep.blogspot.sg/2014/04/restaurant-review-fat-cow.html
