Waa Cow! first started as an affordable, quality wagyu beef bowl specialty food kiosk and delivery cloud kitchen, with three stores in NUS University Town, Marina One and Change Alley Mall; and two cloud kitchens at Bukit Batok HomeTeamNS and Tampines Mart respectively.
Best known for serving one of the best and most affordable flame-torched wagyu beef bowls in Singapore, they have now ventured into opening a restaurant of their own, Waa Cow! Yakiniku, located at myVillage in Serangoon Gardens.
Waa Cow! Yakiniku is a brand new grill-it-yourself dining concept featuring different beef cuts – such as karubi, oyster blade, striploin, and ox tongue – and a selection of pork, chicken and vegetable options.
One of the highlights of dining at Waa Cow! Yakiniku is a wide selection of seven sauces and dips to pair with the grilled meats. Choose from the crowd pleasers – Garlic Butter Teriyaki and Ponzu Negi sauces – or add on any of these five sauces – Mentaiko, Truffle, Spicy Miso with Leek, Sweet Sukiyaki with Raw Egg, and Wasabi Mayo.
You can order their signature all dips platter at $3.90 or individual dips ranging from 90 cents each for the Mentaiko sauce, Truffle sauce and Wasabi Mayo sauce; to $1.90 for the Spicy Miso & Leek Relish sauce; to $2.50 for the Sweet Sukiyaki with Raw Egg.
Sharing plates such as fresh sashimi platters, and hot sides such as chawanmushi and miso soup are also available, alongside alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Designed as a casual and fun dining space, Waa Cow! Yakiniku’s bright and colourful décor, complete with a 12.5-metres wall mural, exudes energetic, vibrant and youthful vibes.
We were invited for a dinner tasting and these were the items we sampled:
There are also combo sets with a mix of meat, with prices ranging from $9.90 for a Trio Meats Set (Karubi, Pork Collar, Chicken) to $29.90 for a Trio Beef Set (Karubi, Tongue and Sirloin). You can also make your meat order into a set by topping up $5 to get a bowl of Japanese rice, a Spicy Miso and Leek Relish sauce and a drink (bottled water, Coke, Coke Zero or Ayataka green tea).
Everything is pretty fuss-free and casual, with generous servings and a fun ambient, making it perfect for group gatherings with friends and family at the restaurant. While the restaurant specialises in Yakiniku grill, their sashimi are of great quality too for the price. I am pleasantly surprised at how thick the salmon cuts were.
We will be back again for more!
“As we celebrate the 6th Anniversary of Waa Cow!, we are excited to debut our new Yakiniku concept as part of our brand’s continued desire to serve more customers with quality, affordable and fun dining experiences,” shared Aaron Yeo, Co-Founder of Waa Cow!.
“We believe that many Singaporeans enjoy experiential dining. This is where our Yakiniku concept truly adds value as customers can enjoy the pleasure of cooking their food for one another, helping to foster physical interaction and bonding in an increasingly digital world. What is also great is that customers can customise and build their meal by selecting what they want and how much they want to eat,” added Aaron.
