Fat Cow

This “Japanese-inspired meat atelier” is five years old this year — no mean feat considering Singapore’s fickle dining scene. A classic space with pale wood chairs and tables, shoji doors and screens, the centerpiece here is a 16-seat U-shaped counter (where you can watch and even chat with the chefs). The menu features luxe starters such as Zucchini Blossom Stuffed with Crab ($30). But the real star of the show is the wagyu beef: A4 ribeye (from $120) and A5 ribeye (from $148), which you can have cooked in the style of your choosing — sukiyaki, shabu-shabu or sumibiyaki (charcoal grill). Drink-wise, there’s a respectable wine (from $16/glass) and cocktail (from $16) — think Ume Sours — list too.
