Got beef? We’re back with yet another limited-edition set menu from Boeuf, the Telok Ayer steakhouse best known for their free-flow ribeye weekend promotion and exquisite beef cuts.
This time, they’ve launched a special four-hands menu in collaboration with popular French-inspired bakery Le Matin Patisserie, featuring an array of unique dishes that showcase the best of the respective restaurants’ flavours.
This six-course menu is available all day from now till 31 October 2023, and is priced at S$128++ per set. It’s also recommended to be shared between two diners, which means that each person only needs to fork out S$64++.
Two tantalising appetisers await, the first being the signature Burratina Di Puglia — fresh burratina on salad greens with toasted pine nuts, roasted vine tomatoes, and balsamic reduction.
After that, dive right into the Wagyu Steak Tartare, made from prime Australian F1 Wagyu Marble 6 beef, and topped with a herb-infused yolk and lumpfish caviar. The richness of the tender raw beef is balanced out by the capers, which add a zingy crunch. It is also served on a flaky and buttery sourdough-based croissant instead of the usual bread or crostini.
As for the mains, the Horseradish Sweet Shrimp Tartine sees poached prawns tossed with beurre noisettes (hazelnut butter) crème fraiche dressing and lumpfish caviar on another sourdough croissant.
Though lighter on the palate and more suitable for lunch, this was unsurprisingly overshadowed by the Filet Mignon Rossini, two thick slices of Australian Marble 3 tenderloin with a side of indulgent seared foie gras, pepper jus, and buttery laminated brioche feuilletée, which I’m a huge fan of.
The beef was chewy and full-bodied, but my dining partner and I found ourselves enjoying the meat and pastry separately. You could also attempt eating this like a sandwich, because why not?
The decadence carries through to dessert, in the form of the Moelleaux au Chocolate, a molten chocolate cake made from Weizz Komele 70% cocoa with Madagascar vanilla and whipped mascarpone. Chocolate lovers, this one’s definitely for you.
If you’ve yet to try Chef Al-Matin’s Fromage de Vos Reves (S$16.90++), now’s the time! Think of it as an elevated cheesecake, composed of Brillat-Savarin (a French triple cream cheese) mousse, comte sponge, Reblochon (a semi-soft nutty cheese) cremeux, and milk crumble glaze.
This probably won’t be your favourite dessert if you dislike (mildly) pungent cheeses, like those of the blue variety, but the strong aroma is definitely toned down by the sweetness!
Once again, you only have till the end of October to enjoy these beefy and buttery delights, so start making plans with a friend ASAP. Reservations can be made here.
