Three is the magic number at Miyoshi by Fat Cow. Miyoshi means “three graces” in Japanese and is an allusion to the restaurant’s roots and concept.
How is this conveyed? The restaurant offers three unique dining experiences of Japanese cuisine – ramen, teppanyaki and omakase.
Located in a beautiful colonial style conservation building called Mess Hall (once a military recreational club) on Sentosa, diners can savour long-beloved Japanese flavours in a modern way, thanks to the collaboration by head chef Shingo Iijima and sous chef of Miyoshi, Nigel Loh.
One of the highlights from the a la carte menu is the Wagyu Shoyu Ramen that features premium Miyazaki A4 Wagyu presented in shabu-style slices.
For something a little out of the ordinary, the Wagyu Dry Ramen is the noodle of choice. Featuring succulent Australian wagyu striploin, the blanched ramen noodles are tossed in a flavourful savoury sauce of house-made niku miso (wagyu miso sauce), taberu layu (a slightly spicy Japanese chilli oil) and shoyu. Tip: Let the noodles rest on the plate a little longer for a touch of crispiness and char at the bottom.
The a-la-carte menu also features a selection of teppanyaki mains. Presented in a specially designated section of the restaurant, the 12-seater wood-and-steel teppan counter serves up sizzling items such as Live Lobster, Straw Smoked Hokkaido Scallop, and Teppan Style Sukiyaki.
Diners who opt for omakase are led to a separate dining area where they are personally presented each course by the culinary team led by chefs Nigel Loh and Sherman Chow. The menu is produce- focused: seasonal, fresh, and prepared in the way the chef thinks it best. Only 10 counter seats are available, by reservation only for dinner from May 2023.
Set lunches are also available from Wednesday to Sunday. The menu is varied and offers all of the restaurant’s ramen dishes as well as donburi rice bowls such as Hida Wagyu Ribeye & Satsuma Tenderloin Wagyu Donburi. Dishes are served with sides including braised burdock, chawanmushi, miso soup and dessert for a well-rounded meal.
Miyoshi by Fat Cow is at 2 Gunner Lane, #01-04/05/06, Mess Hall, Sentosa.
