Ye Olde Cow Review: Food Truck With Premium Dry-Aged Beef Burgers From $12.90

16th January 2024

Ye Olde Cow has premium beef burgers near One-north MRT 


With the recent unveiling of Gourmet Park and The Palawan Food Trucks in Sentosa, it seems the food truck concept is gaining popularity in Singapore. Ye Olde Cow is one of the newer additions to the food truck scene here, having opened early last year. They join the likes of The Goodburger in serving premium-quality burgers from mobile vehicles.

While The Goodburger specialises in plant-based burgers, Ye Olde Cow prides itself on its dry-aged Australian beef patties. Dry-aged beef is notoriously pricey because of how time-consuming the production process can be, but the result is meat with a richer flavour and more tender texture. Ye Olde Cow’s burgers start at just $12.90, making them a pretty affordable option for those wanting to sample this high-quality beef. As a self-proclaimed beef connoisseur, I had to jump at the opportunity to try their burgers.

Food at Ye Olde Cow 


Ye Olde Cow has a small, focused menu. It features just four burger variations, three of which are meat-based and dubbed their “Signature Styles”, while the last one is a vegetarian option. A normal burger comes with double patties, but diners with a smaller appetite can also choose to get a Half Pint Burger ($12.90), which only has one patty. 


We started our meal with the Signature OG Burger ($18.40), a pared-down dish comprising two smashed patties, a slice of melted American cheese, caramelised onions, and mayo sandwiched between two buns. 

The highlight, as expected, was the dry-aged beef. Cooked to medium doneness, it appeared pretty lean but was surprisingly tender and juicy, with an almost buttery mouthfeel. Stellar texture aside, I thought the patty could’ve used a little more seasoning. The taste leaned slightly salty, but overall lacked depth. 


Nonetheless, the burger buns were soft and fluffy, and the caramelised onions added some sweetness and textural contrast. All things considered, it was a pretty filling burger with a generous amount of meat for the price. 


Next, we had the Signature Classic Burger ($18.40). This burger switches caramelised onions for lettuce and tomato, making it the better option if you want to have more greens. Like the OG Burger, the beef patties were hefty, succulent, and incredibly satisfying to eat.


On the other hand, I do wish that there was a little more to the other burger toppings here; the plain piece of lettuce and slice of raw tomato paled in comparison to the beef patties, which made the whole burger less cohesive than it could’ve been. 

Apart from burgers, Ye Olde Cow offers Plain Fries ($4.90) and Cheese Fries ($7.90) as sides. We decided to order the latter, which consists of skin-on shoestring fries topped with a house-made, beef fat-based cheddar cheese sauce. Looking at earlier reviews, I noticed the cheese fries used to come with beef crumbles, but it seems they’ve removed it from the dish recently. Admittedly, I was a little disappointed when I found this out, but a beef fat cheese sauce still sounded interesting.


It wasn’t too bad after all: I liked that the cheese sauce was creamy and rich, with a perceptible cheddar flavour that didn’t feel artificial. It reminded me of Shake Shack’s cheese sauce, albeit saltier with a deeper colour. The fries themselves were also cooked nicely and were sufficiently crispy.  


As for drinks, we got a cup of Lemonade ($3.90). It was a welcome, refreshing addition to the rest of our meal, especially since the area where we were eating was open-air with almost no fans. Its acidity also helped to cut through the fattiness of the burger and fries, making it a good palate cleanser. 

Ambience at Ye Olde Cow 


Ye Olde Cow’s food truck is parked at an open space behind the lyf building. It’s right opposite one of One-north MRT Station’s exits, making it pretty easy to find. As it’s a food truck, there isn’t a dedicated dining space, but there’s a fairly large open-air public seating area nearby where office workers were enjoying their burgers. 

When we arrived at about 12:30pm, it seemed we were one of the first ones in line for lunch, as a small queue formed behind us after we placed our order. Although orders were made via a QR code, we had to wait around the truck to collect our food as there was no SMS or email notification to let us know when it was ready. As you’d expect from a no-frills food truck, it didn’t take long for us to get our meal. 

The verdict

Ye Olde Cow is not the cheapest meal option, but their premium-quality beef patties are worth the occasional splurge. I do wish the patties were better seasoned, but the juiciness of the beef makes up for this somewhat. Overall, I’d recommend paying them a visit if you’re ever nearby.
