The much anticipated Fat Cow opened its doors on 20 October 2011 and is set to shake-up the regional dining scene with a concept as unique as its namesake. Fat Cow is a Japanese-inspired meat atelier where the promise of a bespoke dining experience is carried through from the luxurious meat-service to a vintage wine list and signature cocktail collection.
Established by The Big Idea Group following the success of Kinki Restaurant and Bar which set the pace for urban-Japanese dining here, the team is now ready to introduce Fat Cow - a discerning, Japanese-inspired meat atelier which has taken close to a year to conceptualise and launch. While the word “Fat” may have less favourable connotations for some, the team at The Big Idea Group takes a different approach to give the word new meaning. “To us, the word “Fat” stands for luxury and indulgence. This is what we want our guests to experience at Fat Cow. “Fat” is also a play on the word “Fatt” which in Mandarin dialect means prosperity.
From America to Hong Kong and Australia, the owners of Fat Cow have selected some of the best professionals in the field to manage the atelier. Besides a premium selection of beef from leading farms around the world, guests can also choose to enjoy the meats through a variety of Japanese-inspired preparation methods. While the addition of a cocktail room unifies the bespoke Fat Cow service, the attention to detail is also reflected in the private collection of vintage wines and a piped-in compilation of sultry and modern jazz compositions specially commissioned to set the tone for a classy lunch or dinner.
The Fat Cow space spans slightly over 3500sqft, and its design takes a contemporary approach to the Japanese “Wabi-Sabi” concept. Pared down to its barest essence, “Wabi-Sabi” is the art of finding beauty in things modest, simple and humble. This is much like Fat Cow’s goal of encouraging guests to discover the art of beef enjoyment, by adopting basic and minimalistic Japanese cooking techniques that bring out the best of the meat’s natural flavours.
Staying in dialogue with the outlines of the Richard Meier building where the restaurant is located, elements of this “Wabi-Sabi” approach takes a contemporary form throughout the Fat Cow space. From a ceiling of latticework (an ornamental criss-crossed framework) white washed to emphasize a raw finishing, to the walls which are embedded with hand-made ceramic tiles and custom-made menus imprinted on wood, the interior design embodies the abstract idea of aesthetic asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity) and simplicity.
The cuisine at Fat Cow is one that mixes Japanese-inspired gastronomy with ingredients and flavours not typically used in Japanese cuisine. The culinary team at Fat Cow is focused on the highest-grade beef sourced directly from respectable producers in Japan, America and Australia.
The menu at Fat Cow is divided into three sections. Starting with the entrées, the menu offers highlights such as the House-made Silken Crab Kegani Tofu ($25), Japanese Baked Potato with Caviar (Sevruga - $35++, Oscietra - $42++ or Beluga - $68++), Wagyu Ox Tendon with Foie Gras ($29++), which takes two days to prepare, and crunchy Heart of Palm Salad with a Citrusy Sesame Dressing ($18++). A seasonal menu that showcases the freshest produce available in the marketplace will also be available from week to week.
The main event at Fat Cow begins with the diner selecting their preferred weight, choice and cuts of beef. The culinary team and service staff are fully knowledgeable on the characteristics of the various meats available; Japanese Beef Grade A3 (good marbling with a subtle sweetness, suitable for char grilling; $80++/100g), the richer Japanese Beef Grade A5 (higher percentage of marbling, luxurious on the palate; $95++/100g) to the Australian Beef Grade MS 8+ from either Stockyard Ranch ($52++/100g) or Blackmore Ranch (similar marbling to A3 grade with a meatier texture; $85++/100g).
For guests who are in the mood for seafood, there is also the Alaskan King Crab ($30++/100g) and a selection of seasonal fish (market price) available daily. Other available signatures on the seafood section include the Lobster and Truffle Chawanmushi ($58++) and Charred Lobster with Egg and Soy ($65++/half portion, $120++/full portion).
After selecting the mains, there are four preparation methods which diners can choose from. The “Shabu Shabu” sees thinly sliced beef or seafood briefly immersed in a gently simmering broth while the “Sukiyaki” sees a more robust broth being used for cooking. “Charcoal-grill” is a great way for the meat to achieve a distinct smoked crust while retaining all its juices inside and the “Teppan” is a flash searing technique. After meat and preparation method selection, the chef will portion the beef, season it lightly, and present it to guests to ensure everything is to their satisfaction before they proceed with the cooking.
On the desserts section, the House-made Warabi Mochi ($18++) is a must try. Other highlights include the Kabocha Soy Soup ($18++), which is served warm and the air-flown seasonal Japanese Fruits (market price).
The Fat Cow cocktail room features a list of creative muddles specially designed to complement the cuisine. With home-prepared liqueur and cordial brews, this attention to detail and basic ingredients is synonymous with the Fat Cow’s philosophy of providing guests with the freshest ingredients of the best quality in order to ensure consistency in taste.
The current cocktail menu is made up of close to 20 signature Fat Cow cocktails which will change according to seasonality of the ingredients. Signature cocktails include the Hot Buttered Ume ($25++) served with a rose butter cube, Kyoho Flip ($25++), Shiso Gimlet ($28++) and the Midnight Sencha ($25++). The more adventurous can opt for the Dealer’s Choice – based on the guest’s preferred flavours, the crew will prepare a one-of-a-kind cocktail to complement the meal.
The Fat Cow wine list offers close to 100 expert selections, featuring different grape varietals from regions such as Australia, Italy, France, Argentina, New Zealand, America, Spain and Chile. Prices on the list range from $90++ to $400++ per bottle. A private “Sommelier’s Collection” of vintage wines dating back from 1960s is available only through pre-order with the restaurant’s Wine Sommelier.
