Waa Cow!, a home-grown casual restaurant chain, best known for their signature flame-torched Wagyu Beef Bowl, made their debut six years ago at a humble location in NUS University Town.
Since then, they have steadily garnered a growing fanbase and opened a total of five outlets to date. Earlier in May, they opened their sixth and newest flagship outlet at VivoCity (#01-188C). This will be the first Waa Cow! outlet with a refreshed concept catered at family dining.
An established brand for dons served with premium Wagyu Beef, Waa Cow! has been popular among diners working in the CBD district where their outlets are located. Its latest expansion into one of Singapore’s largest family-friendly shopping malls, VivoCity, came as a natural choice as Waa Cow! has always hoped to be more accessible to more groups of diners, especially families.
Waa Cow! Vivocity is the brand’s new flagship outlet and features an exclusive, outlet-only menu that includes new dons, small-plates, and kid’s meals for the whole family:
Waa Cow! Beach Station
Apart from being a family-friendly mall, VivoCity is also known for being the gateway to Singapore’s island getaway — Sentosa.
“We’ve always imagined the beach to be a place filled with fun and laughter, where the best memories are made.” Shared Aaron Yeo, co-founder of Waa Cow!. With that in mind, the inspiration behind the murals in the new outlet and exclusive beach-themed merchandise was born.
Spanning 160 square metres and seats 90 diners, Waa Cow!’s latest outlet is decked in bold and vibrant colours of royal blue, emerald green and yellow, along with a fun confetti exterior. Upon entering the dining hall, customers are greeted by two colourful digital in-house drawn murals depicting Waa Cow!’s own take of a beach station.
Exclusive VivoCity-only Menu
Diners can look forward to an exciting menu, with new and exclusive dishes available only at the VivoCity outlet. Showcasing Japanese-inspired flavours and ingredients, be spoilt for choice as the menu consists of an expanded selection of appetisers, and even a kid’s menu for the little ones to dive into.
Kickstart your dining experience with hand-rolled Makis, which were co-developed by chefs who worked at Michelin restaurants, and tasty appetisers to tantalise your tastebuds before devouring into Waa Cow!’s signature dons.
