Now this place is fat… or is that phat? Either way, we are fat-and-happy fans.
1. Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc – by the glass. Reason enough to sit down.
2. Incredible cuts of beef (US Wagyu, Halfblood Australian Wagyu and Top Grade Japanese beef from award winning Saga prefecture) prepared in stunning fashion. Reason enough to settle in for the evening and many more thereafter.In a nutshell: $$ – appropriately priced
Fare – excellent. Bespoke cuts of meat, prepared and presented beautifully. Good wine list too. Service – knowledgable, just the right amount of interaction, genuine. Location – easy to access, parking on site, walking distance to MRT, unusual location but it works. Ambience – fantastic and one of the hallmarks of this restaurant. Counter area out back is interactive, lively and subtly s***.
Fat Cow, as it’s marketed, is a Japanese inspired steakhouse. This small sentence really does sum it up. They have all the hallmarks of artisanal style Japanese food – delicate (you’ll see us repeat this over and over and over), intricate, purposeful and elegant. It’s why we all love Japanese food done right isn’t it? The delicacy of these flavours is incredible – so light, clean and yet so full of flavour. Incredibly difficult to achieve. Their amazing beef selection can be prepared in a myriad of ways, but traditionalists will certainly enjoy their shabu-shabu style.
And yet alongside this delicacy, they serve up a hearty steakhouse plate. Picture steak cooked to your liking and served with perfectly fluffy truffle fries and a choice of sauce on the side. Done.
The thing that really stands out at Fat Cow is the attention to detail and delicacy (there it is again) and precision of both the flavour and presentation of the food coupled with a purposeful and tailored ambience. It all works together just beautifully.
We recommend sitting at the ‘counter’ for a more casual, interactive experience, but by all means if you’re after something a little more exclusive and private, the dining room is sectioned into lovely, quiet areas. The bar on arrival is perfect for a PDD too (and does some great cocktails).
Also a fantastic choice for lunch (casual catch-up, business or otherwise) with a value for money set lunch option.
Fat Cow is purposeful and thoughtful in every way, in terms of the ambience, your glass and your plate. A much better reason to visit a Medical Centre wouldn’t you say?
