Alternative Experience Burpple Beyond Had the alternative experience 7-course dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It was really worth it with the burpple beyond offer. Dishes included: 1 & 2) savoury tart with truffle mascarpone and aged air-dried beef / beef consommé / financier with duck fat and foie gras mousse 3) short ribs and potato pave 4) beef char siew and kale 5) beef “bak kwa” sandwich with emmental cheese 6) wagyu tri-tip 7) pistachio tart with sour cherry and meringue Overall, fat belly takes pride in introducing the less popular cuts of beef, which also means you shouldn’t expect the melt in your mouth fine quality of meat( tri-tip was a tad chewy but also due to the muscles in the cut). However, they do take it to their innovation and using these cuts to create alternative dishes like bak kwa and charsiew. (The bak kwa sandwich was simple but really a delectable indulgence.) The details in each dish were very nice thought out, with sides also being equally outstanding as the main ingredient. Dessert left us pretty impressed with the smoothness of the pistachio tart and the really light and not too sweet meringues.
7 Course Set Dinner One of the best Burpple Beyond deals - 7-course set meal ($40++ each after 1 for 1). The appetiser dish is really petite (3 courses on one plate) but after that it gets really good. The char siew was a nice and sweet, followed by the waguy bak kwa sandwich with cheese which is surprisingly goood, and the main wagyu course is slim, tender, nicely done at medium, ending with pistachio ice cream dessert!
delicious, unique steaks 1) 400 Day Grain Fed Crossbred Wagyu Deckle, MS 8/9 ($65, 300g) Got ourselves front row seats to the flame grill action at their open concept kitchen. Impeccable char, insides done to a consistent medium rare perfection. The deckle is the cap around the ribeye, and is just jam-packed with flavour. 2) Auskobe Wagyu Onglet, MS 4/5 ($40, 200g) Another more obscure cut of steak, the onglet is crazy tender, with most of the flavour and all of the char and perfection of its more expensive sibling 3) Sides: Creamed Kale ($8), Truffle Fries ($7) Great companions, but was honestly too stuffed and satisfied by the steaks to enjoy them fully. Creamed kale was consistently creamy and appealed to this kale-hater, and the shoestring truffle fries were crisp to the end. 4) Basque Burnt Cheesecake ($12) I'm no cheesecake aficionado but this was perhaps the fluffiest cheesecake I've had. Paired with some strawberry compote and passionfruit reduction and it goes to the next level.

My First Impossible Once you get past the strong fermented scent, digging into the Impossible Burger at Stamford Brasserie was a pleasant surprise. Strangely does taste like real meat! Unfortunately, it didn’t wow me enough to justify the price that impossible meats are normally tagged with.

an underwhelming experience I had visited TSB once before and quite enjoyed my meal then, so this was disappointing in comparison. We shared the TSB burger ($26++) which was highly rated but we found the “wagyu” patty dry, crumbly and cold. We actually enjoyed the brioche pepper bun more. Our other item was the roasted baby chicken ($22++), which fared better. While not flavourful, the chicken was at least moist and tender. We enjoyed the grilled brussel sprouts and garlic mashed potato - these gave flavour that the chicken was otherwise lacking. Service left much to be desired as it was difficult to get hold of the servers for simple things like water and the bill. Hoping that TSB will perform better on the next visit!
Impossible Burger I am a Yellowcarnivore because I generally love my meat and lack an affinity with most vegetables (opps). Having said that, I have been curious to try The Impossible Burger for the longest time ever because of the amazing reviews online. I finally tried The Impossible Burger ($23) at The Stamford Brasserie and I can only say that the reviews are true: how can a plant-based patty tastes so much like a legit medium-seared beef patty😱! The patty is juicy and flavourful - a little on the salty side but not that I mind given my salty tooth. I guess the unsalted chips at the side balanced it out:P The delicious patty goes well with melted cheese, pickles, tomato and Brioche Pepper bun - didn’t expect it to be this good:)!
