The Traveling C.O.W – Chef On Wheel, seemed like it has been taken out of a nursery rhyme, of “The Cow Jumped Over the Moon”. However, Karen, owner of The Traveling C.O.W – Chef On Wheel explains that the name came as the acronym of Chef of Wheels forms the word C.O.W. Thus the name The Traveling C.O.W – Chef On Wheel was born.
The Traveling C.O.W – Chef On Wheel, located at a quiet mall/office and with windows facing rows of trees and the counter decorated with cow spots, it seems as though we have entered a tranquil part of Singapore within the city area. To bring the entire back–to-nature atmosphere to another notch, Karen has planted edible herbs on each table and remains passionate about being environmental friendly by using bio-degradable corn-ware for all the utensils, bowls, plates.. etc.
We started the tastings with a light appetizer- Chicken Salad. We guarantee you that this chicken salad won’t be your regular salad that you purchase at the deli or any other cafés. The chicken has a “smooth like tofu” texture and an oriental twist to it. Yes it tastes like the Hainanese version of chicken salad.
Next was Mac and Cheese Truffle ball. I adored these from the core of my heart. The perfect combination of truffles, macaroni and cheese exploded in my mouth as I chomped my first bite down. A word of advice, as with most “cheesey” food, these cheese balls have to be taken while they are still fresh and hot off the stove.
The next thumb up dish has to be the Ramen chicken wings! Okay we have to admit that we are suckers for all food chicken wings by nature. However, these wings are packed with “crunch element” Every bite makes me feel like Cookie Monster from Sesame Street! These wings are definitely a “No No” food for the cinemas. We guarantee a kick in the butt by other cinema go-ers if you were to consume it while watching a movie!
For me personally, the star of the tasting has got to be the Ramen mushroom wagyu beef with egg burger and the Chicken rice burger. Though each burger was wonderful and different in their way. The Ramen mushroom wagyu beef with egg burger with its ramen as its substitute for the usual bread keeps the fried egg, succulent wagyu patty and chunky servings of mushroom in its place. And who can miss out on the cooked to perfection sunny side up that beckons “eat me and slurp it” So bring loads of tissues and wet tissue or better still, bring a baby bib as the lavish servings of mushroom and sauces along with the juices from the beef overflows with every bite of this amazing burger!
Chilli Crab Pasta
The taste and presentation of the chicken rice burger will set any traditional Hainanese chicken rice chef into a cardiac arrest! Traditional chicken rice is being fried into golden brown patties and cleverly sandwiched the sapid fleshy Hainanese chicken. This will be my final choice for chicken rice if I were to have a last taste of traditional food. Lychee Soda
