“Overstated Quality...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

We had a dinner on fat cow. The ambience was good at the grill bar, nice interior.. Service was OK.. However, we feel that the food and drinks was not that great.. We ordered the butcher collection which said to be their best beef, but the beef quality isn't there.. It was a bit rough, worse than wagyu marbling 6, but with the price of Kobe.. And the ranger valley beef was even worse.. But, they have a good spices and fat rice, despite the overstated beef quality...
Overall, OK, but overpriced..

“Food is amazing, ambience is just okay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

We had dinner at Fat Cow to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant is decorated very nicely but it was a little noisy in the dining area that we were seated at. The table sitting beside us were quite rowdy and the Japanese paper room divider between didn't do much to muffle the sound. It wasn't exactly the 'romantic' ambience that I was hoping for.

Having said that, the food certainly impressed us and once the dishes came out, we soon forgot about the noisy table beside us. Highlights for us were the 'slow-cooked ox tendon and seared foie gras with daikon' and 'rice porridge with egg in a mushroom-beef broth'.

To end the night, the chef prepared a complimentary dessert platter for our anniversary which I thought was very thoughtful of them.

“Fat Cow is one of the best Japanese restaurant in Singapore.”

I like their salad, sashimi and very tasty beef. The price is a bid expensive like other Japanese restaurant, but I will come again.

“Underwhelming ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

Came here with friends and had The Macallan Whiskey Dinner set menu. The whiskey pairing was rather thoughtless. The first course, the Maguro to Ringo no Kunsei Shio (chopped tuna, Fuji apples, sushi rice, salmon roe and smoked salt) was very average. The second course, the Wagyu Sumibiyaki no Kuro Nin'Niku (100% pure-blood Blackmore ranch wagyu beef) was quite good. The Himi Udon no Omo-San (handmade noodles with crispy fried beef) was below par. The beef was extremely dry and rough. Finally the Yuzu-Miso-Gyunya (yuzu sorbet with white miso biscuit and milk pudding) didn't work very well together and was not very delicate for Japanese dessert. In all, our expectation of the restaurant far exceeded what the establishment was actually able to deliver.

We had dinner at Fat Cow. The beef is good but not fanstastic and i think it is expensive. Service is good.
