Opened for a few months now, Feather & Bone was launched by the founders of the popular online deli, Three Butchers. It has now become a staple amongst the expats and locals alike in Happy Valley. As an unique boutique with a curated gourmet deli and restaurant in the neighbourhood, it’s no surprise they’re a big hit as they stock quality products and with the option to dine in.
They offer 100% grass-fed meat (which is more sustainable and better for the environment) directly from Australian farmers. The grocery store at the front transports you to the well-stocked and market-fresh produce with hand-picked seasonal products from Europe and the US. Plus, they have a wide selection of gluten-free products from Roza’s Gourmet. The best part? You can pick up your produce (specifically the speciality cheeses from France and premium cuts of meat) and have Executive Chef Eric Taluy (previously the Head Chef at the Shanghai Expo) cook them right there! The casual dining and courtyard at the back is the perfect place to put your groceries down and enjoy your picks instantly.
I had the chance to check out Feather & Bone mainly because I had heard so much about the place and wanted to try it for myself. After all, who doesn’t love a good cut of meat and cheese chosen from an experienced cheese monger?! You can win the way to my heart through a solid pasta, quality cheese and a good cut of meat. I started off with the Cheese and Charcuteries Platter ($238) that comes with a selection of two cheeses and two charcuteries. The perfect start to the meal alongside some fresh from the oven bread and butter.
Chef Eric’s Special Pasta of the Day ($158, vegetarian option available) followed the platter and the pasta of the day just so happened to be my fav, good ol’ Carbonara. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the creamy sauce and crisp pancetta has my mouth watering. And finally, the pièce de résistance, the Grilled Meat Plate (prices vary depending on the cut). I got to sample the grass-fed rib eye, homemade sausages and seared rack of lamb. Each cut was cooked perfectly and seasoned to suit the different types of meat.
Sassy Mama Tip: The platters and large plates are definitely made for sharing; so don’t be afraid to double up on your choices! We recommend the cheese and charcuterie platter as well as the grilled meat plate.
If you love premium cuts of meat and fresh produce at a very reasonable cost while dining in a no-fuss, welcoming and warm neighbourhood atmosphere, Feather & Bone is definitely for you. Family and pet friendly, add this spot to your next weekend brunch or dinner with the gang.
