The Fat Cow Donburi (Set Lunch)

$39.00 · 70 Reviews

Had been eyeing this since the start of Circuit Breaker.

I still enjoy dining home at my own comfort with food delivered right to my doorsteps. The Fat Cow Donburi arrived with cling wrap wrapped and there was a burst of truffle aroma once I uncover the bowl.

Particularly love their Fat Rice, fluffy white rice seasoned with their signature “truffle shoyu”.

The Fat Cow Donburi $48++

Gifted by both Cecil @shootandspoon and Cassie @cassakating, they are out to stuff me with food because they not only send one but two donburi from Fat Cow. Each of these dons is accompanied with a chawanmushi and miso soup as well. First up is their signature, The Fat Cow Donburi which comes with a base of seasoned rice of truffle shoyu topped with charcoal-grilled wagyu, an onset egg, alfalfa and drizzled with truffle oil. If you love beef on rice, this is definitely right up your alley as the fatty and tender-to-the-bite wagyu slices with the creaminess mixed in from the onset egg is a perfect match with the fat rice. Best of all, you will not feel overly truffled, as they don’t just spam truffle, they make sure its just the right proportion so that you will not feel surfeited. Next up is the Fat Foa-Gura Don, which is constructed over a bed of steamed Japanese short-grain rice and topped with glazed foie gras and wagyu. I am guessing there has to be a reason why the restaurant is called Fat Cow because as you might know fat = flavour, and the foie gras-wagyu combination will definitely hit your palate with all the flavourful notes like music to your ears. Thank you both once again for this meal treat!

It is perfectly possible to have very tasty meals during this period where we must all do our part to #StayHome. Nearly every restaurant is offering takeaway/delivery at the moment, including those that were notoriously hard to get a reservation at. So choices are aplenty.

A few days ago, while I was debating where to order Wednesday’s lunch from, my ex-JC mate Brian messaged to say he wanted to treat me and my fam to a meal. From @fatcowsg no less.

Awarded “Restaurant Of The Year” by @chopesg in 2018 and 2019, Fat Cow is particularly well-known for their Japanese Wagyu beef and rice bowls. I have always had a soft spot for the “Fat Cow Donburi” ($48) myself and I am happy to report, after factoring in the travel time, it still managed to taste good. Granted the charcoal-grilled Wagyu beef was not piping hot like it would be when you are having it in the restaurant, but it was as buttery-soft and flavourful as ever. Together with the onsen egg and truffle oil-dressed seasoned rice, it formed a soul-satisfying, indulgent one-dish meal that I could happily have anytime. My niece who ordered the same dish, was full of praises for it as well.

My hubby and his brother picked the “Tokujou Donburi” ($68), a ricebowl topped with tempura prawns, unagi, salmon mentai, Wagyu beef, foie gras, abalone and a housemade sauce. I reckon it is ideal for those who are after a bit of everything.

Each of our orders was actually a set meal as it came with a miso soup and a chawanmushi filled with mushrooms, chicken and prawn. All the items were neatly shrink-wrapped and arrived safe and sound.

Once a year affair with Fat Cow, especially worth it with the Entertainer app. Ordered the donburi ($98++) as the rest were beyond my budget. As usual, the taste of all the ingredients were top-notch and the reason why I keep coming back for more. The foie gras was perfect, had to save it for the last. You will know it when you eat it. A definite must-eat!

Part of the lunch menu and you get a generous portion of sliced waygu topped with an onsen egg. The melt-in-your-mouth goodness is pretty hard to describe. Would love to try from their main menu soon!

Rating: 5/5

Food is ok, service is poor for calibre of restaurant, prices are outrageous.

A perfect medium-rare charcoal-grilled wagyu beef, topped with an onsen egg and shredded leeks over rice. It is also seasoned with a hint of truffle oil for the addition of that amazing aroma. Every single bite sends you to heaven. I closed my eyes to savour every single ounce of flavour of that marvelous wagyu beef. It was literally seasoned and grilled to perfection. It was just too good.

If you’re into wagyu beef, The Fat Cow Donburi from Fat Cow is a good one. Charcoal-grilled wagyu beef served over seasoned Japanese rice with onsen egg (and onsen egg never fails ✨). There’s also a distinct truffle oil flavour in it. We do recommend you to have it during lunch and have the lunch set (comes with chawanmushi, miso soup, and salad)

Everyone raves about the set lunch-only Fat Cow Donburi or a la carte Premium Donburi but what really caught my attention was the Donabemeshi ($78++) - slow cooked wagyu beef in claypot, Japanese short-grain rice, onsen egg, shiro negi and house seasoned shoyu. Ultimately a claypot-style donburi, the meat is noticeably more tender and flavourful than that of the original donburi, which I got to sample a little from someone who ordered that, probably due to the slow cooking process that makes it all the more tender and softer; the fatty pieces of wagyu meat are super melty and delicious, and I can only wish there was more of those compared to the leaner chunks. I do love the uniqueness of this dish because it does give off a sense of Jap-local fusion due to the claypot elements of the dish, and I feel it elevated the regular wagyu beef don to something more fragrant and tastier. 😋

The price is really hefty, and I probably would not have gone to Fat Cow without the trusty Entertainer app which allowed 1-for-1 a la carte main dishes limited to every 2 pax (up to 8 pax, 4 vouchers). I am not sponsored by the app (lol wouldn't everyone wish they were? 😂) but this really saved the table a lot of money, and this meal alone managed to breakeven the cost of the app, so all's good. 😁
