Meat lovers in search of some gastronomic respite this stay home season, can turn to Salted & Hung, a four years old establishment that specialises in Australian cuisine. Nestled amongst other quaint eateries and restaurants along Purvis Street near Bugis MRT, the restaurant adopts a nose-to-tail philosophy in dining, meaning no part of the animal is wasted in creating their mouth-watering dishes.
The Wagyu Pastrami Sandwich ($25) is a drool-worthy challenge that is certainly not for the faint-hearted. Packed to the brim with stacks of wagyu pastrami that are soaked in flavour. Talk about a sandwich that is the very definition of “thicc”; I barely made it past half a sandwich before I threw in the towel.
Complementing the rich, umami notes are the tangy mustard and melted cheese. The house-made pickles add a refreshing burst of sourness that offsets the onslaught of meat and carbs. The bread itself stayed crisp and sturdy despite holding in what seemed like a ton of meat, even surviving the journey from the restaurant to my home well.
What’s a sandwich without some cookies to wash it all down? These Anzac Cookies ($8 for 6 pieces), a staple of Australian households, takes it up a notch by combining bacon bits with oats, and a dollop of salted caramel in the middle. Almost like a secret cache of delicious flavours!
Salted and Hung is a great option if you’re looking to indulge without breaking the bank. Best of all, they’re offering islandwide delivery with no minimum order required from Monday to Thursday for the month of June!
