Premium Wagyu Beef at Clifford, The Fullerton Bay Hotel
This season, the juicy Wagyu flown in from Australia will be the highlight for epicures at The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore’s chic brasserie, Clifford – helmed by Executive Chef Sandro Falbo – only available from 19 August to 30 September 2013. Thank you Fullerton Hotel, I tried the set menu ($190++ per person) featuring tasting portions of the dishes.
Known for its marbling characteristics and quality, Wagyu Beef delivers a distinctive rich and tender flavor compared to other beef which makes many people drool. We started our lunch with a bowl of tasty French Wagyu Oxtail Soup ($32) and Wagyu Beef Carpaccio ($32).
I really like the Wagyu Oxtail Onion Soup which has gruyere-cheese topped crouton sitting on top of the soup – you won’t regret it. Under the volcano of cheese is a bowl of sweet onion soup. The cheesy toast and soup is heaven on a spoon. The Wagyu beef carpaccio ($32) uses Grade 8 Wagyu beef that is sliced to a paper-thin version and complemented with grilled porcini, arugula and parmesan lace.
The exquisite Braised Wagyu Cheek Cannelloni ($38) is creamy and filling with morel mushrooms and truffle colombier fondue.
We had a Trio Platter which features Braised Wagyu Cheek, 24-hour Orange Scented Short Ribs and Cheek, 500-day Grain Fed Wagyu Sirloin. The texture of the braised wagyu cheek is marvellous – firm enough to hold its shape under the knife yet soft enough to yield easily to the bite. The Wagyu Sirloin is decent, and the scented short ribs and cheek is also meltingly soft and tender.
We ended our lunch with Clifford’s signature Apple Tarte Tatin, complemented with vanilla ice cream. Their apple tarte tatin is supppppper good, with an artful layer of caramelised glazed apples on a puff pastry base.
You can pair your meal with a glass of Marrenon Merlot ‘Les Grains’ Provence France 2010 or Valle De la Puerta Reserve Malbec 2009. Each glass is $18 and each bottle is $88. The wagyu dishes and set menu is available every dinner till 30 September.
