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.
