Citrus’ Beef Rendang Baked Rice ($14.90++) is a seasonal special that’s on till 31 October, so get it before it’s gone. But is it really worth it to head so far out of the way just for this?

If you live in Sengkang, Punggol or Hougang, then perhaps. The beef rendang is undoubtedly the best thing about this dish, as the beef brisket was fully infused with the scintillating spices in the rempah that the brisket was marinated in, and the redolent rempah is a real delight for the nose & tongue. The beef was kind of dry and wasn’t as tender as expected, but then again they did chuck it into a broiler to melt all that cheese.

It was also charmingly cheesy, yes, ‘twas cheesier than my drunk pick up lines. I just wish that they poured on more of that ravishing rendang onto the rice and all over the melted cheese after baking the dish, as the current state of the dish is a touch too dry.

Nevertheless, it’s still a beefy, ren-dang brilliant dish.
