Fat Cow @ Camden Medical Centre, Singapore

This Japanese steak house is huge on its beef, offering high quality cuts of well marbled beef from Australia, Japan and USA. Fat Cow serves luxurious meats tailor-made to every individual, they are known for their various grades wagyu beef. You can choose how you want your beef to be cooked in different styles: Sumibiyaki, Sukiyaki and Shabu Shabu. 



Fat Cow is no doubt a hidden gem located at Camden Medical Centre in Orchard. Big thanks to The Entertainer, I came to know Fat Cow and we were given a 1-for-1 main course deal. If you've been following me, you would know that I use 'The Entertainer App' a lot on my dining experience.




Brought the homz here for her birthday treat, since she and myself are all beef lover. I like an open kitchen concept, exposing the culinary skills of slicing a marble beef or any aspect behind the scene of cooking. I made a reservation at 2pm and it's quite empty as the last order is 230pm for lunch menu.



We were given 2 sets of menu, the ala carte and lunch menu (below).




We were told that the sign with Japanese wordings symbolized the ranking of the restaurant in the world that serves authentic wagyu beef. So in this case, Fat Cow is ranked is 00678.


Yuzu Tea ($6) - A glass of flavourful Japanese Yuzu tea, refreshing!


One of the dish we had, Grade A3 Sirloin (100g) in Sukiyaki style ($78). A rich shoyu stock sweetened with rice wine is cooked in cast iron for even heating. We were served with 4 huge slice of A3 Sirloin, a vegetable platter, plain rice and raw egg for dipping. That moment when my eyes are wide with happiness after the first bite, ahh. It literally melts in your mouth, feels heavenly.


We were introduced to the different cuts of meat and we went ahead with Blackmore Ranch 220g ($85) from Australia according to our preferences. We requested for middle rare done-ness in our beef which explains the pinkish area. This time we went ahead with Sumibiyaki style. Grilled over binchotan charcoal, served with sudachi and salt. We were served a sauce which the chef mixed to match our beef. 
I can't find any words to describe how good this is. I'm serious.


After, we ordered must-eat 'The Fat Cow Donburi' ($39) from the lunch menu set. Charcoal-grilled wagyu beef with onsen egg and shiro negi. Note that each set includes salad, chawanmushi, miso soup and dessert.


Here's The Fat Cow Donburi bowl, as usual we go for medium rare done-ness. The wagyu is grilled and marinated to perfection, onsen egg was nicely done as well. I finally know why everyone says this is a must eat from the lunch menu. The shiro negi enhance the whole bowl which makes every bite so delicious!


Two weeks before while making my reservations online, I causally put a special note which says, 'celebrating a friend's birthday'. After that, I totally forgotten about it. But to my surprise, we were served with a happy birthday platter with a scoop of ice cream after our meal. Best service ever.


I swear we were shocked and she thought I planned this, but the truth is no :P 
And so, happy birthday homz!


As you can see dining at Fat Cow can be costly, but the quality of the beef is definitely worth the value. Thanks to The Entertainer App, we paid 3 mains for the price of 2. Great service, quality food, laid back atmosphere, great company equals to best dining experience. Thank you Fat Cow once again, now I know where to get my wagyu fix.

If you're a big fan of wagyu beef, this is a must-try for you.

  1. Do they charge your donburi set as 1 for 1?

  2. Hi Cheryl. The 1-for-1 on entertainer is only applicable to ala carte items which excludes the donburi lunch set. Hope that helps.
