Beef Brisket Man Tou (3 pieces)

$8.90 Β· 16 Reviews

[Invited Tasting, 2/6] Continuing from yesterday's pizzas, we also got to try their Pulled Beef Mantou Sliders.

While I did appreciate the idea of localising the slider here, I felt that the mantou buns were much too oily to work. Also, it was inevitable that every bite would result in juices leaking out of the sliders. Still though, I will give it to them on the fact that the pulled beef was rather tender, and the mantou lent a slight mentega manis (sweet butter) flavour to it, which made it more palatable despite its shortcomings.

I think the biggest problem you will have with this is the price. 3 pieces for $9+ is what it's going for. But of course, if you're keen to try it, why should that be of concern, right? 😹 (6.7/10)


Pulled Beef Mantou ($8.90 for 3, $13.90 for 5)
Nice local twist on the conventional sliders. The beef was juicy (my biggest fear when eating pulled meat is that they are extremely dry), BBQ sauce had a good balance of tangy & sweet, & the slaw added texture to this appetiser. However, one way in which execution could have been slightly better is to have the Mantou less oily. I guess some people won't mind, but I personally don't enjoy seeing oil glistening on the surface of my food.

Slow cook beef brisket tossed in homemade bbq sauce served with homemade Slaws sandwiched between crispy golden Mantous.

How does it sounds?

Located along North Bridge Road, this restaurant has been quickly gaining traction in Burpple's Muslim community for both its East-meets-West dishes as well as its minimalist interior. Come with your date and start with the simple but satisfying Beef Brisket Man Tou ($10) β€” slow cooked pulled beef brisket in a homemade barbecue sauce, stuffed into freshly fried, pillowy soft mantous. For mains, Hyde's Chili Crab Pasta ($18) comes highly recommended β€” expect al dente linguine tossed in a homemade spicy (they mean fiery!) arrabiatta sauce and topped with a generous portion of blue swimmer crab. End your meal on a sweet note with the Ondeh Ondeh Toast ($12), grated pandan coconut over two fluffy brioche toasts. It is served alongside vanilla bean ice cream and drizzled with gula melaka sauce.
Avg price: $30 per person

I thought it was quite clever to have "man tou" act as mini burger buns to hold the pulled beef brisket. The barbecue sauce used to slow-cook the beef was also made in-house but it came across on my palate as more sweet than smokey or tangy. As I do not like my food too sweet (desserts don't count! 😁 ), I was glad the chef added some creamy slaw to temper it.

Cosy space, friendly staff as well as Hyde & Co. 's highly instagramable offerings make for a nice place to chill and cause one to want to spend a lazy afternoon there. Savoury or sweet, I couldn’t decide so instead of a main I opted for a side, Pulled Pork Man Tou ($9 for 3) and for dessert, Butterscotch Popcorn Waffle. Sandwiched between two deep-fried buns, their juicy slow cooked pulled pork in homemade BBQ sauce was made more sinful with the crispy exterior of the mantou and soft center. Wishing the banana slices were caramelised, the waffle was a great balance of textures and the premium artisanal vanilla bean ice cream was the icing on the cake.
