The Brilliant Ox (5/10 🌟)
🔹Food: Poor execution is the culprit here. The flavors are pretty decent. I know this place is relatively new but serving burnt bread repeatedly is a sin. Our two orders of Bone Marrow Platter $25 (📸:1) came with bread that was burnt (📸:2). They even tried to hide the burnt sides by flipping them over. The two super burnt pieces I turned over to illustrate this. The Marrow was also overcooked so there wasn't much left to scoop out. The Crispy Pork Belly $21 (📸:3) was ok. The sauce wasn't enough to balance out the fattiness of the pork belly. The Teriyaki Beef Shortribs $26 (📸:4) were tasty but not tender like you'd expect. The Brilliant Ox Fries $11 (📸:5) was sadly the best dish. The cheddar sauce and oxtail gravy went well together.
🔹Service: Our waiter wasn't very attentive and there were long periods time that we weren't checked on. They seemed understaffed.
🔹Verdict: Pass for now. For some reason I want to like this place but they need to work out some of their kinks. I'll be back later to try again. Stay tuned.
🔹Tip: Located in previous Pearl Ultra Lounge location below Mai Tai Bar.
