We’re just over three weeks into the circuit breaker period. Many F&B establishments have pivoted to provide delivery and takeaway services, while others have decided to remain shut for now. Steaks aren’t something you’d usually consider for takeaway – but restaurants, up-market steakhouses and chop houses have had to react quickly.
Take owner Sheen Jet Leong of The Feather Blade: the 28-year-old was stirred by his one-year stint at prominent London steakhouse Flat Iron, which uses the feather blade steak, a lesser-known, inexpensive cut of beef. He brought the concept to Singapore and made it his own when he opened The Feather Blade in Singapore just last year. It started out as a pop-up concept serving the signature cut, though the restaurant now has a permanent location on Club Street where it continues to deliver quality steaks.
Says Leong, “We had to quickly adapt to this new operating model and learn as we go. Some of the initial challenges we faced – which we soon overcame – include timely fulfillment and expanding our menu without diluting our brand offering.” That includes simple adjustments, like serving the signature steak on a bed of warm mashed potatoes to help keep the steak hot until it reaches your doorstep.
Get their burger: minced feather blade seared in beef fat for extra flavour, topped with shallots and bearnaise for a decadent affair that’s worth every calorie. And since you’re not driving, chase it down with a craft cocktail or three from Native that feature the best of seasonal local ingredients.
“I hope that the support for local F&B remains steadfast as we ride through these unprecedented times together,” adds Leong. “We are truly grateful to the community and our fans for the tremendous support thus far.”
The Feather Blade’s focused menu and dedication to innovation have allowed it to gain a footing among Singapore’s heavyweights, standing with the likes of Wolfgang’s, Wooloomooloo and Fat Cow – and like the Feather Blade, these tried-and-tested steak joints are also offering a carnivorous home feast delivered straight to your home.
