Straat Snacks: Lunch at Bedrock Bar & Grill

Award-winning restaurant Bedrock Bar & Grill, now open on Sundays, has a tempting set lunch menu which includes wagyu beef and steak burgers with foie gras.

We can’t quite explain why, but some days run-of-the-mill chicken rice just doesn’t cut it for lunch. When you’re craving good burgers or steak at noon, head to Bedrock Bar & Grill.

Located in the heart of Orchard Road, the restaurant and whisky bar has been, since October this year, open for lunch every day, including Sunday. Each lunch set – priced at S$38 for poultry and seafood, or S$58 for steak – comes with a choice of one of three starters, six mains and three desserts.

The lunch menu, carefully curated by Chef Isaac Tan, who heads the kitchen at Bedrock, aims to provide a window into the meats served at the award-winning restaurant, and boy is the view superb.

Obviously, we gunned straight for the steak and the burger.

The Wagyu Minute Steak, a wagyu striploin hand-selected by Chef Isaac, is served with potatoes, onions, and shallot sauce. At our request, the kitchen sliced the steak up and had each piece fanned out for us; the glorious pink on the inside of the steak made us blush. It was tender and juicy, and perfect.

Also satisfying is the Chopped Steak Burger, a thick stack of beef, foie gras and portobello mushrooms. The patty consists mainly of meat, some fat, and sinews – no fillers or binders. Chef Isaac explained that while the lack of fillers makes the patty crumble easily, it’s also a good indication of it being all beef. We’re talking about serious stuff here.

So the lunch sets are great on their own, but if you’re greedy like we are, the Bedrock Mac & Cheese (S$20) from the a la carte menu is a must-try. Chef Isaac made the genius choice of using a thinner macaroni variety in this dish so it doesn’t fill you up as quickly. That, coupled with the fact that it features four types of cheese and truffle oil makes it hard to put the fork down.

So that was lunch. And there’s no better time to experience Bedrock’s lunch set than now. In celebration of its upcoming sixth anniversary, the restaurant is offering a complimentary steak lunch for guests whose birthdays fall between October to December. Just come by with three friends during your birthday month and get your pals to order one main or set each to enjoy your free steak!
