Offering a completely different experience from its Esplanade branch, the new Barossa Bar & Grill at VivoCity shines the spotlight on dry-aged Australian beef and Josper oven-grilled lamb, poultry and seafood dishes. The Australian-inspired restaurant serves only the highest quality and carefully sourced meats from Australian farms.
Barossa specially curates its selection of Australian beef from four renowned brands. The Bass Strait range showcases 100% grass-fed beef — the cattle are raised on natural rye grasses and clover. Wanderer’s free-range beef offerings come from cattle that roam freely in paddocks and feed on barley. Josdale is an Australian pioneer of 100% grass-fed black angus; its cattle roam the verdant pastures of Gippsland in Victoria and are antibiotic- and hormones-free. Finally, Carrara’s array of multi-award winning wagyu is known for its superb texture and intense flavour, which are derived from first-class genetics and grain-fed for a minimum of 350-400 days. Their cattle is traced from birth to ensure biosecurity and meat safety while providing the best animal welfare.
In addition, the restaurant boasts its own dry-ageing fridge, the Dry Ager®. The bigger cuts such as porterhouse and tomahawk are aged for 50 days while the smaller cuts such as tenderloin and striploin are aged around 25 days. The natural enzymes in the meat break down some of the collagen, resulting in a tenderer texture. During the dry-ageing process, the beef also loses a percentage of its total weight due to water evaporation, which causes the flavour to become more concentrated and intense.
The restaurant overlooks the tranquil water leading to Sentosa Island, making it an ideal address for sedate sessions replete with tête-à-têtes. Perfect for casual gatherings, its special al-fresco menu features tapas from just S$6, cheese platters (from S$28) and pizzas (from S$24). Kick back and relax with offerings such as Japan Sakoshi Bay Oyster ½ Dozen, Chipotle Buffalo Wings, Truffle Fries and Char-grilled Prawns with Spicy Citrus Dressing.
Barossa carries about 10 wine labels from Australia as well as a wide selection of white and red wines from Italy, New Zealand, France and South Africa. Classic cocktails such as mojito, pina colada, amaretto sunrise and tequila sunrise are available here as well.
