This one came with a chunk of garlic butter on top! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Instead of the usual sized Korean pancakes, Hyang Yeon does them more bite-sized! While it was fried well with crisp edges and easy to eat, it didn’t have as much seafood as we hoped for. We really liked the dipping sauce though, it had a good balance of sour-sweet and savoury. This was the medium and they also serve a large version at $20.

I’m not a big fan of cream pasta but the Spaghetti Carbonara ($16) from Mpire is quite delicious! The savoury bacon and parmigiano cheese cut through the creamy sauce and go well with al dente spaghetti. Got this at a steal with Burpple Beyond’s one-for-one deal✌🏻

Probably one of my fav places be it for brunch/lunch/dinner, and this time I went for the Sticky Date Pudding (~$16) instead of my usual cake🍰
.
Pudding had a banana cake texture, crumbly, moist and soft! Sauce was strongly toffee flavoured and really sweet, so you might wna go easy on that 😋
.
For maximum satisfaction, I’d suggest waiting till the vanilla bean ice cream is half melted into the pudding before getting a bite of the icecream- pudding- sauce mixture.... heavenly 👌🏻‼️

Half portion truffle fries (~$8): yes, you can ask for it half portion for half the guilt!! 🍟 Strong truffle aroma that wafted from every table; with shoestring cheese and that truffle scent, we have a truffle fries winner 😛

Flat White to go!

Love their freshly brewed coffee that is not too acidic and has a fuller note.

Love that they have nice ambience too.

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.

Not only do they have an amazing romantic ambience -- their steaks are also beautifully medium rare like I asked even with their thick, huge sizes. What's the most unique at this place is that it serves bowl after bowl of piping hot duck fat fries! That means the fries are freshly fried with every order and not just scooped out of a pile. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One of their specialties is Nasi Lemak w/ Rendang Beef - The rendang beef is cooked overnight till tender but it also tasted gamier than expected.

Having visited this restaurant numerous times and tried the different items on their menu, the quality of food has always been excellent. The Head Chef is very meticulous to remember what i have been served before whenever i had the omakase, and always surprises me with new dishes.

Parallel to what most have mentioned, their Omakase is truly value for money for what was served. I personally feel the bang for bucks comes when you have the omakase or lunch sets. Their Ala-Carte menu can be abit pricey, likewise with every other quality Japanese Restaurant that i’ve been.

I will definitely be making a return visit.

Staff was pleasant and friendly, food was affordable and service was prompt

Would recommend the grilled skewers, really yummy and great to go with drinks

Mackerel was refreshing but would not recommend it to anyone who isn’t a fan of vinaigrette

We enjoyed the moriawase tempura. The ingredients were fresh and it was fried till light and crispy.

I was looking forward to the rosti mentai - an interesting twist to Japanese cuisine. It would have been a lot more enjoyable if the shredded potato could be crispier.

The dining experience was great, it was very welcoming and homely. It would be perfect for those looking to enjoy their beer with light food.
