This Place Hits The Sweet Spot For Steak At A Good Value Price Point. H O S T E D Inspired by “The Flat Iron’ in London”, @TheFeatherBlade is an “alternative steakhouse” launched in Singapore earlier in May that is very shrewd about their offering and who they are targeting. Essentially they want to be top-of-mind when people think about where to go for #propersteaks at pocket-friendly prices. This explains their concise menu which is focused on a 200gm piece of steak priced very attractively at $21. Naturally at this price, the Australian beef is not a prime cut but the meat which comes from the shoulder area, is lean and flavourful. And because they pay close attention to how it is cooked, results in a decent level of juicy tenderness. The other way to enjoy the steak it is to order their off-the-menu Burger. Also priced at $21, the beef is minced and formed into a patty that is grilled, then placed between super-soft brioche buns and dressed in a truckload of house-made bearnaise sauce plus fried onions. I enjoyed this the most from all that I tried at the hosted lunch. As for the side dishes, there are four, priced at $7 each. They are a Caesar Salad (it has a whole crispy nacho chip-coated soft-yolk egg!), sautéed shimeji, shiitake and button mushrooms, hand-smashed potatoes deepfried in beef fat and spinach in parmigiano-reggiano cream with a pinch of nutmeg. If you like a sauce with your steak, there are four as well to pick from: Szechuan peppercorn (I liked this a lot), bearnaise, horseradish cream and red wine jus ($2). The newly-launched Gyudon is very good value for money at $14. Besides the 100gms of sliced steak, you also get very tastily-seasoned Japanese rice, an onsen egg, soft-cooked onions, garlic chips and pickles. And if you are a fan of foie gras or Hokkaido scallops, there is the option to add them on for another $11 per item. Only one dessert, an ice-cream sundae, is listed in the menu but it did a great job in satisfying. I found plenty of happiness in the Madagascan vanilla ice-cream with Valhorna dark hazelnut chocolate sauce, salted caramel and crunchy flakes of feuilletine biscuit ($8). The Feather Blade also offers special cuts and have garnered quite a following for their “Picanha Thursdays” and “USDA Prime Sando Tuesdays”. Do follow their Instagram account for updates. Thanks Sheen for hosting us for the lunch.
Feather Blade Steak This tender and juicy meaty meat is so darn goood. It’s worth the queue, time, and price.
The Steaks Are High Finally. I made my way down to The Feather Blade. Shopback GO may or may not have a part to play in this..... There was 10% cashback boost til a couple of days ago, I knew I had to visit! That promotion's done with, but their usual 5% cashback is still pretty bomb. Queued for 15 mins slightly past 8PM on a weekday; got a seat at the bar counter for myself. Not too shabby. Wasn't asked how I'd like my steak ($21++), but it was done medium rare, which is how I'd like it to begin with. Very pleased with the steak as much as the side of Mushrooms ($7++) that I ordered. If you're looking for #propersteaks, this is the place to be. Yes, it reminds me of Flat Iron in London, but so what? Give me a delicious steak & you'll make me very happy. 🥩 💳 Accepts credit cards 🌬 Air-conditioned seats available ☀ Al fresco seats available 🍽 Shopback GO partner 💦 Water is not chargeable

One is the dish from @artichoke_sg that I enjoyed it a lot is Housemade hashbrown. Peeled Russet potatoes are steamed, grated, and seasoned with corn flour and salt, then covered with foil and baked at 150 degrees for an hour. then cut into squares and fried it, topped with sour cream and fresh za'atar (wild thyme in Middle East). The texture of crispy hash brown at outside and Soft inside, mixed with chilled sour cream combine together in mouth, it’s really good 😋 💰$14. 📍Artichoke Sg. 161 Middle Road.
For the first leg of @cforcoffeee’s birthday celebrations, we went to the #bestshitrestaurant in town for the least authentic Middle Eastern food at Artichoke. After nine years of operation and #stillnotdead, Artichoke has refreshed their weekend brunch menu, offering hearty and honest fare, none of the hipster waffles and pancakes. It’s always a joy to dine at Artichoke as you can be rest assured that you are in good hands to fill your bellies with good food. In addition to the must-orders of Turkish bread and hummus, we shared the Brunch Snack Pack ($22), a constructed plate of sharwarma spiced chicken, fried egg, fries and pickled onions among the medley of ingredients, and the Cauliflower Kushari ($24) which I have shared my review on it previously. We left the restaurant filled and satisfied. •••••••••••••••••••• 📍Artichoke 161 Middle Road, Singapore 188978
Fabulous with a side of bread If you like eggplants, stewed veggies, and olive oil, you’ll like this iconic Mediterranean dish: imam bayildi. To be fair I’ve not had this anywhere else so there’s nothing to compare Artichoke’s against, but their rendition is, without doubt, absolutely delicious. What you’ve got is a plate of eggplants stuffed with tomatoes and onions, simmered in oil till they practically disintegrate and melt in your mouth. It’s extremely confit-like, if not for the clearly roasted exterior and how the eggplant’s absorbed all the amazing flavours from its stuffing. All those intense flavours are then balanced out with dollops of creamy yogurt, and a generous glug of fruity olive oil. Grab some bread and tuck in to this, just trust me on it.
