The Beast

This is an outdated post which I visited last year slightly before the Halloween.

Coming down from Lavender MRT to Bugis MRT, The Beast is just conveniently located along the main road. Parking can be a challenging one, as it is limited to only street parking and indeed limited slots if you happen to visit at the wrong timing.

The Beast aim to serve classic Southern American cooking, with an extensive selection of craft beers and cocktails. They have indoor and outdoor seating at the ground floor, but it can be pretty squeezy, suitable for drinks and bites. Up to the 2nd storey, The Beast is able to accommodate more diners, but only indoor, and also the place where proper benches and tables are provided for the purpose of mains.

Love the interior design, creating the countryside ambiance with a tint of yellow lighting. Imagining yourself traveling through time and landed yourself in a cowboy environment and having a beer?

The Beast provides two types of dining menus, where dinner and bar menu are available from Mondays to Saturdays, while brunch menu only on Sundays.

With less than 10 items for mains, each of the item sounds interesting but gave me the doubts in whether it would be fulfilling for my appetite.

Southern Sweet Tea ($7.00) and Freshly Squeezed Lemonade ($7.00). Southern Sweet Tea gives off a balanced sweet and refreshing taste on a hot weather, while the squeezed lemonade can be slightly too sour.

Cajun Fries ($8.00). Changing my taste from the usual truffle to Cajun fries, I have to admit I love Cajun fries more, where the sweet taste and little of spiciness invades my taste buds.

The Big Biscuit ($22.00). It consists of buttermilk biscuit, fried chicken, candied bacon, sunny side up, pimento cheese and sausage gravy. Candied bacon seems to be coated with a layer of honey, and overall tasted like the Chinese barbecued pork during the Chinese New Year but a little crispier, and fried chicken patty is juicy and tender. Totally love it!

Mac & Cheese Burger ($22.00). Basically a burger when buns are made of mac and cheese being fried, beef patty, bacon jam, barbecue sauce, lettuce, tomato and sweet potato fries. The "buns" are quite tasteless, and would be best to eat with the beef patty and sauce. Beef patty seems to be homemade which crumbles when cut but spills out the juice when bite.

I really appreciate The Beast to decorate their place for Halloween. Their use of props does tells me how much effort they put in to indulge diners into the festive. But this also leave me to wonder if they will do the same for other local festivals such as Chinese Lunar New Year?

Food wise, The Beast is actually more popular for their The Beast Burger which I believed costs around $125. While this is only available in the dinner menu, it consists of 1.6 pounds of beef patty, 1 pound of pulled pork, and 1 pound of buttermilk fried chicken. Looks intriguing, and I would definitely hop back to The Beast to challenge their The Beast Burger, but also not a bad idea to indulge myself back there with their other mains.
