A simple restaurant with a cute name, meet up with your friends for some good ol’ meat at Meat & Meat. Located at East Coast Road, this restaurant has a simple and unpretentious menu comprising of burgers, grilled meat and bar snacks, cosy low-lights and snazzy interior design with an 80s vibe.

I already had a good first impression, greeted by the alluring smell of smoke and grease, and the friendliest staff who brought us to our seats.

When I first saw the menu, I was surprised to see dishes that were atypical of an American smokehouse (which isn’t what Meet & Meat is, just a fallacy of mine) such as French Onion Soup (S$7.5), Tomato Bruschetta (S$6.5) and Chef Bruce’s Tapas (S$13.5).

Nonetheless, I settled for the heartier dishes, starting with the Meet and Meat Signature Burger (S$17.5) that is paired with crispy pork belly, Emmental cheese and chorizo for an extra spark of flavour.

I never really liked burgers that were designed to be too big for your mouth. I get that it’s a gimmick and it does have its appeal. But to me, what’s the point when you have to struggle and still not get everything in your mouth? This creation was something I could get by though. In terms of size, it was only slightly bigger than average. Meanwhile, every component fits perfectly and comes together harmoniously, surprisingly, considering crispy pork belly and chorizo are rare elements for a burger.

Meanwhile, the Teriyaki Kurobuta Pork Chop (S$18.5) had a tender texture and the flavors were on point, although I must admit that I expected Kurobuta to be way juicier.

Every main comes with two sides. You get to choose from the typical fries, wedges, onion rings, tomato and mushroom soup, etc. I highly recommend the sourdough which was bestowed a smoky aroma by the grill. The soups were not bad too.
