Meatsmith x Pullman Singapore Orchard | American Steakhouse Takeover
From 8 to 21 January 2024, Meatsmith and Burnt Ends Bakery are joining forces with Pullman Singapore Orchard to showcase their creations at the beautiful glasshouse Eden Restaurant and Atelier Lounge. Always been meaning to try the food at Meatsmith? Now you can get them in Orchard, for a limited time. We headed down on the first day to try some of their dishes.
We started off with the Pullman Platter. This corn bread with smoked butter is a great carb to have. Warm and fluffy and lightly glazed with honey on the top, I found myself going in for more bites even though I was warned to save stomach for the meats. The smoked butter gives it a different taste – you must try it!
The platter also comes with crab cakes (in a ball, bite-sized).
One of the meats that stood out for me in the platter is the Beef Short Rib Rendang, although I was hoping for a stronger rendang flavour. The meat, however, was well-grilled and tender, whilst trapping the smokiness from the grill.
The pork belly is also well-caramelised with obvious char and a mildly sweet sauce slathered over. This slice that I had was on the fattier side; good thing it was not a huge slice otherwise it would have been too rich for me.
And of course we had to get their Meatsmith Wagyu Burger. Double patty that is well-grilled (think slight crisp from the char, tender juicy patty), double cheese, sandwiched between buttery brioche buns. Share if you are a small eater or want to save stomach space to try other dishes because the double patties make it a substantial burger.
As we were there in a group, we could share all the desserts on this collaboration menu. Their roasted marshmallows need no introduction and it is an adult’s version of a childhood snack – although do note that this is on the sweeter side.
Then came this lemon meringue tart – the lemon filing was zesty and very much welcomed after the heavier flavours in the meats.
My favourite has to be the peach cobbler. Served warm upon order, you have sweet peaches buried underneath crumble and almond silvers and a dollop of cream. I’m guilty of wiping this clean!
For chocolate lovers, the homemade oreo mud pie is the one for you. Expect an oreo biscuit base, with layers of chocolate, ice-cream and some sponge cake. Overall, it was a very hearty meal and we’re glad to have Meatsmith available in the heart of Orchard, particularly in such a beautiful venue like Eden Restaurant. Budget per person: $20 to $30 per person
