Braised Beef Cheeks

$26.00 · 15 Reviews

Reviews for this dish was rather decent so I decided to give it a shot. I thought it was a pretty interesting dish and worth a try as well! Beef cheeks were tender, however I could not really make out the gravy that was made with red wine. Wished the flavours of the dish were much stronger!🐄

Ordered the braised beef cheeks and the beef short ribs pasta; personally liked the pasta more for its flavour/sauce

An affordable meal when using Burpple Beyond! We ordered the Beef Cheeks and also a Smoked Salmon Tarte Flambe (not in image) for the 1-for-1 promo. Food was pretty good but I don’t think I would dine again without the Burpple Beyond offer. Their service was good and efficient. The food that I ordered was pretty good! The beef was soft and I loved the mashed potato. Their Smoked Salmon Tarte was flavorful but a tad salty for me. Sweet Potato fries were crispy but mediocre. However the Crabmeat Pasta(we chose linguine with tomato sauce) was pretty good. Definitely worth a try. A good place for a date or gatherings!

Food: 3.5/5

Had this beef cheeks a few times alr!! Love how consistent they are in terms of taste!! The beef cheeks are tender and go really well with the sauce!! The mash was also very well done, very buttery and had many layers of flavour!! Really worth the money!!

Not bad, nothing too special.

The beef cheeks were very tender and was complemented well with a side of silky mashed potatoes, mushrooms were on the dry side but overall still a great dish. Short ribs pasta had a generous serving of beef as well as shredded cheese toppings. The red wine based sauce was very flavorful as well.

The mushrooms were really the star, cooked to perfection and that umami flavour really lifted and carried this dish.

While the beef was tender with perfect texture, I felt like it was sorely under seasoned. I tried moping up with sauce with it but it didn't do much for me. The mashed potatoes were good but that's it, nothing spectacular. I was expecting it to be creamier as previous reviews have raved about. I definitely have had better at other cafes at similar prices.

If you are into subtle flavours, this would be great for you. Otherwise, asking for some salt and pepper would probably do you some good.

Ambience is great, the interior is lovely. I came at 3pm on a weekday and it was empty and it's a great place to chill and hangout with friends.

Honestly, I've heard many good things about Eleven Strands and naturally my expectations were high. I was disappointed with my experience here not because the food was bad, but because it just didn't seem that great. Its quite pricey if not for burpple beyond. I might consider coming again but I don't think I would pay full price.

Good deal with Burpple 1for1. Meat was tender and with smooth mashed potatoes

I’ve been hearing raving reviews from several of my friends about this place, so I knew I had to try it for myself. I’m happy to say that this place didn’t disappoint and it was worth travelling for. The interior had a nice ambience as well. Both dishes that we ordered were good, and I would recommend the beef cheeks. I will likely return again to try the other mains!

Altogether, this dish is very tasty. The beef cheeks are very tender and pair very well with the mushrooms and the mash potato. The sauce brings all the flavours into a nice bland. A wholesome savoury meal!
