Huoyanshaiziniu brings Taiwan’s flame-grilled beef cubes to SG
Edit (15 Jan 2018): The launch date will be delayed till further notice.
When in Italy, having at least a gelato a day is a norm for me. And when in Taiwan, the one thing I must eat daily is their flame-grilled beef cubes. Young entrepreneurs Sean Lee and Cheo Tian Feng of Huoyanshaiziniu, have heard the cries of fans like me, and they’ve brought Taiwanese flame-grilled beef cubes to Singapore!
If you haven’t had a chance to fly to Taiwan to try the popular torched beef cubes, save on your airfare and head to Plaza Singapura on 20 January 2018 at 11am for Huoyanshaiziniu’s opening.
Huoyanshaiziniu’s flame-grilled beef cubes
Huoyanshaiziniu only offers takeaways, and they serve their beef cubes in oyster pails – those Chinese takeout boxes you see in American movies. Each of these 130g portions sets you back $6.90. If you want to have a complete meal, you can dish out $8 to have your beef with Japanese rice.
They use Angus ribeye cuts, a favourite of many steak lovers. We watched the chef season the beef cubes with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt, saltbae-style.
Armed with weapons like a blow torch on one hand, and tongs on the other, he started to grill a serving of beef cubes on a heated pan. Grilling and torching them at high heat, the beef quickly turned from red to brown.
Every dice of beef – in medium doneness – had a slight char at the corners, creating a hint of caramelised flavour. When you bite through them, the first taste will be smoky, then you’re into succulent, juicy meat. It is as if they have been touched by a breath of the fire.
You can choose from three seasonings – garlic, seafood, yakitori – for your beef cubes. Go for the garlic if you want to intensify the taste of the torched beef. The seaweed one brings out a combination of flavours that give the dish a novel refresh. I would only recommend having the yakitori sauce with the rice bowl to give the rice more flavour.
To taste these flame-grilled beef cubes yourself, and have a mini #throwback session to your last Taiwan trip, head over to Huoyanshaiziniu on 20 January 2018 at Plaza Singapura!
