Ô Boeuf à 6 Pattes replaces Casse-Croûte, which is hidden at the second level of the clubhouse of Park West Condominium.
Being situated within a condominium, visitors need to register their names at the guardhouse regardless of making a walk-in visit or having made reservations beforehand. The clubhouse is located at the end of the condominium just behind a swimming pool, where it is located on the second level. While the restaurant does have air-conditioning installed, it is pretty much an open concept design due to the sliding doors used for the shop space. A French bistro, expect a variety of entrees, charcuterie, le boeuf (which comes with a choice of sides), mains and pasta as well as desserts available. Kids menu is also available here, and they do also offer off-the-menu daily specials as well.
A basket of bread is served complimentary for each table, which worked great for our order of the Duck Rillettes which we could spread it on. The bread was pretty delightful with the butter provided; light, fluffy and crisp on the exterior crust; very comforting especially when had warm.
I am not a fan of Duck Rillette in the past, but the Duck Rillettes here was absolutely delicious. The shredded duck meat was moist and savoury; it comes with a good degree of brininess which works incredibly well with the bread, while the salad on the side helps to cut the flavours when needed. Certainly, a dish that I found myself enjoying despite being an item which I would usually avoid.
Beef Tartare ‘au Couteau’ with condiments is a tartare dish which meant that it is to be served rare, using cuts from the tenderloin for the cubes of beef in the tartare as well as other ingredients such as capers and pickles. While the capers gave it a zingy and refreshing flavour, the rare beef itself felt muted by the sourness of the capers though a light hint of the beef could be detected at the end. Apart from what was mentioned, however, it was pretty well-executed and the flavour profile definitely would work for those who might be worried about not being able to accept the flavours of rare beef. The fries were crisp, though there were a few strands that seem over-fried being darker but well-seasoned with salt.
Since their beef dishes are their signature items, we went for the Braised Beef Cheek in Red Wine & Mushrooms in medium-rare; the original dish comes with just the mash and the braised beef cheeks but the chef has kindly added broccoli for our serving. The Braised Beef Cheeks were incredibly tender as one could cut them simply with the fork, while carrying a good bite as there was a certain firmness to the beef cheek that is pretty unlike those prepared with the sous vide method. The mash which it came with was also light and smooth which was tasty with the brown sauce. Yet another dish that impressed the entire table.
We also went for the Grilled Angus Beef Tenderloin; 200 grams of beef in medium-rare doneness. Crusted on the exterior, the beef was well-executed as the insides reveal a pinkish centre which was tender and with juices locked within; absolutely delightful. The fries were again crisp and pretty addictive, while the ratatouille on the side carries a hint of fresh tomato sweetness.
Having had so many dishes that seem to be consistently good dish after dish, Ô Boeuf à 6 Pattes is certainly a true hidden gem in the west especially with its obscure location within the condominium. The food is pretty stellar here, especially given its price while service was friendly, heartfelt and sincere with staff interacting warmly with the patrons; we definitely left the place feeling satisfied and pretty worth making the special trip for that is great for larger group gatherings or celebrations for the special occasion that I would keep in mind; reservations are recommended for dinner. If you are heading down via public transport, do board 154 or 201 from Clementi MRT Station and alight at the stop along Clementi Avenue 6; take the overhead bridge to walk into Gate 1 of Park West Condominium via the Jalan Lempeng entrance to head to Ô Boeuf à 6 Pattes while those driving should enter via Gate 2 of the condominium.
