Beastly Experience

As a massive eater, I've always longed to visit The Beast after I saw that they serve a Southern fare here in Singapore. Huge burgers, waffles with fried chicken downed with maple syrup, bacon maple glazed donut, just a few examples of the items they serve on their Sunday brunch menu. Really, who could possibly resist THAT kind of temptation? However, I did not visit them earlier because I was being put off by the fact that its location was not familiar to me, and also, they only served their brunch menu on Sundays (10.00am to 5.00pm).

 I was initially drawn to this place because I heard about their Mac and Cheese burger! I mean, Mac and Cheese itself is enticing enough, but a burger?! AND sweet potato fries served as its side?!!! I've got to try this!Mac and Cheese Burger ($22+): Mac and Cheese burger "bun", beef patty, bacon jam, BBQ sauce, lettuce and tomato, with sweet potato fries. The description sounds like heaven, doesn't it? Reading it just make me want it. However, descriptions can be deceiving. The Mac and Cheese bun was underwhelming. The bun was basically made of compacted macaroni, which was pretty crisp, unfortunately we both thought that it needed more salt. Moreover, the cheese was almost non existent in the macaroni buns, which was pretty disappointing because that was the part I was looking forward to when ordering the burger. The rest of the components of the burger were average, hence nothing to shout about. Sweet potato fries was average as well, but I had better, and definitely more tastier ones. Overall, this dish was underwhelming and I would not return just to try this again. You would probably want to try it only for novelty's sake, but they definitely could do better with this ingenious idea.

... I enjoyed my meal here at The Beast, even though the quality of the food was not up to the standards that we expected. The food was pretty photogenic, and it makes me happy, that's all that matters. HAHAHA! The other items on the menu look very appetizing and that would be the reason why I would come back to The Beast. I am honestly impressed with the type of dishes that they offer, and even though The Beast may not be able to execute them well enough now, I believe that in time, and with feedback, they will have the potential to serve up some amazing dishes.

American brunch in Sunny Singapore

I ate here a few times with my grandparents and daughter. The food was fantastic. On a hot sunny Sunday, we sat outside with the chairs with the backrest, and the fan was blowing cool air. The free flow mimosas were delightful and my 86 year old grandpa enjoyed it a lot. The sweet tea and Dutch baby pancakes were my daughter's favorite. The service was warm and friendly. It was packed when we arrived and we didn't make any reservations. Fortunately the staff were nice enough to get us a table. :) Reminded me of my time in the states with Asian hospitality. Price wise: it was worth it because the portions were huge! And the desserts were magnificent and apparently they baked their own donuts! :) highly recommended.

Highlight: The BEAST Burger

The burpple tastmakers community gathered and feast at The Beast, a Southern Kitchen & Bourbon bar situated at Jalan Klapa. One of the bar bites, Freshly-baked cornbread ($6), serve with maple syrup. I was taken away by this homemade cornbread, it looks firm and dry but I was clearly deceived. We also had Bacon Mac & Cheese ($9). It was overall rather decent but it would be good if more cheese is added. That amount served didn't satisfy a Mac n' Cheese lover myself. Best pair with beer: Jack & The Beast Stalk ($12) - deep fried green beans with secret seasoning. It's tasty and addictive.

Moving on to the mains, one of them you can expect is Chicken & Waffles ($20). Buttermilk fried chicken served on top of crispy waffle drizzled with a bourbon maple butter sauce. Highly recommended. Introducing The Beast Burger ($125). The mother of all burgers: 1.6 pound of juicy beef patty, 1 pound of slow cooked pulled pork, 1 pound of southern buttermilk fried chicken and a good serving of slaw, lettuce and tomato. Wedged between a custom-made 9 inch bun, served with a bucket of fries. Take the beast challenge!

Desserts we had, Bourbon Pecan Pie ($12), Bacon Maple Glazed Donut ($5) and Peach Crumble ($12). We ended off with Bacon Maple Glazed Donut ($5). Do note that this is only available on the brunch menu. Quite a filling dessert I must say, with a mini whole donut. I like the combination of bacon and maple syrup, a balance of sweet and savour. A mouthful of super sweet goodness.

Parking was abit of a trouble around here, but when the shisha ban comes into place, I hope this area will not lose it vibrance... On a positive note, parking is free in the evenings! The branding of this place is very conspicuous. You can't miss it even though you may be driving!   Have always wanted to visit this place, and finally we did, with Amex's 30licious dinner menu at S$30++ promotion! We were given a pretty much either-or choice, so we chose:   Georgia Salad ($16) Grilled Peach, Blue Cheese, Mesclun Salad, Red Onion, Toasted Pecans, Cherry Tomatoes, Orange Vinegrette  Roasted Tomato Soup ($10) Grilled Cheese on the side  Chicken & Waffles ($20) 24 Hour Buttermilk Chicken, Waffles, Bourbon Maple Butter Sauce  Blackened Pork Collar ($24) Fine Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Thyme & Garlic Cream Sauce  Fig & Honey and Double Chocolate Ice Cream   The Georgia Salad ($16) is quite a girly starter, in the sense that it's quite sweet due to the peaches, but at the same time, the Blue Cheese wasn't too strong, which may not be good news for Blue Cheese lovers.   We were delighted that the Roasted Tomato Soup ($10) came with 2 traignles of Grilled Cheese laid nicely between breads, a good dip for the soup. Though the soup is average, the presentation is good.   Then came the main dishes, which we ordered Chicken & Waffles ($20) and Blackened Pork Collar ($24), with the server's recommendation.  The Chicken & Waffles ($20) seemed to be lacking something to gel the well-fried chicken and the crispy waffle together. But they were quite good on its own. In fact, the waffles were abit too much, we saved it for the ice-cream. And guess what, even after drowning it in ice cream, it still remained crispy! We are wondering what went into the batter!   The Blackened Pork Collar ($24) easily outshined the former dish though. It's more of a "real food" kind of dish, with mashed potatoes and beans. The pork is marinated well and is very juicy, tender to the fork. We loved it.   Finally came the Fig & Honey and Double Chocolate Ice Creams, which well, could have better been a proper dessert... Anyway, they're tasted like, well, ice creams!   Service was great, young adults serving us, totally a Haji Lane vibe. Do make a reservation though, because it may be a little difficult to sit and eat on the outside stools and high table, plus the smoking area doesn't really help the entire experience.

Located just a step away from my other favorite brunch spot Symmetry, The Beast is a Southern Kitchen & Bourbon Bar. I've noticed it for a while but didn't feel like i could stomach such a meaty meal. With their $20/ hour all-you-can-drink Mimosas and a Do-it-Yourself Bloody Mary bar, it was hard to resist brunching here.    So we went with our empty stomachs in preparation for a huge meal ahead.  For starters, make sure you order yourself some Cornbread ($6). I love this one! It's way better than Kenny Rogers corn muffin which sometimes has these really strange chewy corn kernels. Expect a nice brown crust with a fragrant corn perfume. Make sure you dip into the maple syrup. 

Chicken and Waffles ($20) cannot be missed as well. Ok mainly the Southern fried chicken cannot be missed. The waffles are an afterthought (it was bland and thin) but that massive juicy chicken steak was flavorful and addictive. I still can't get over how much fried chicken i ate. The bourbon maple butter sauce added that little alcoholic bitterness and light sweetness to the overall flavor. This is better than Sin Lee. For REAL.

The Pulled Pork Hash ($18) features a 10 hour pulled pork with bbq sauce that wasn't too overpowering. BBQ sauce has got to be my least favorite sauce of all time but this was quite enjoyable. The poached egg gave the dish a nice yolky moisture which made it even tastier. I could imagine this dish being made into a sandwich a la momofuku style.

Bacon Maple Glazed doughnut ($5) was of a lovely density and had a nice crispy shell. It may be a little oily, and it also had that hint of oily taste but it's such comfort food! I couldn't help taking a few more bites.
We had an awesome time at The Beast. Food is really the highlight here. But be warned, make sure you keep the entire day free because you wouldn't be able to get out of that food induced coma after the meal. The good news is that you only need one meal for the day. Heh.
  The booze that we had were less than adequate however. Skip the sangria for it was way too diluted for me. The Mimosa was ok but it was more OJ than white sparkling wine. But I guess it works out ok if you do the 1h free flow version.
  So yea, be sure to check out The Beast. This is surely where I'd be headed if I have a Chicken and Waffle craving.
