Fat Cow

After reading so much about a place that is offering great beef cuts, Missy wanted so much to go.  It was only recently when Fat Cow decided to open for lunches.  Understanding that it took over the location of another restaurant, Missy was faced with a sign directing her to the front door.  Missy almost missed the door, if not a service staff happened to walk out. 

Missy was directed to the counter seat   As she was there early, it was really uncomfortable with the chefs walking around. As they are there, it was quite awkward to ignore them.  Missy just wanted a simple and quiet lunch with her iPhone at a corner.

She ordered two appetizers to start with.  Braised oxtail with truffles… was not as good as she hope for.  The beef pieces were a bit too tough for her liking.

The second appetizer was Wagyu Ox Tendon and Foie Gras (Slow cooked wagyu ox tendon with pan seared foie gras and braised daikon).  Missy thinks both dishes were not as fantastic as she was hoping it to be.  The tastes of both dishes just didn’t fulfill the promise by their smells.  Was extremely disappointed after taking in both dishes, just like she had been with her recent attempts at making soups.

Wagyu Donburi lunch set was next.  First came the salad, zucchini tempura and a chawanmushi.  Zucchini tempura was light and crisp, fabulous!   The chawanmushi came with ladyfinger pieces in it… Missy not not a fan of ladyfingers.  The sauce lightens the taste of ladyfinger, giving Missy an opportunity to appreciate the spicy taste that is different from others. 

Sliced wagyu beef, onsen egg and shiro negi rice bowl came with a surprise.  The best part of this slice bowl was not the wagyu, not the egg or the negi.  The mustard bits and the sauce was what made this bowl of rice enjoyable.

Dessert was nothing great.  Just a few slices of fruits and a scoop of ice cream.

Missy felt she could have ordered the wrong dishes at Fat Cow.  Given the price she had paid, she wished her choices had been the right one.   She should visit the place and order the beef, which they are supposed to be famous for.
