I’m gonna be honest with you, I wasn’t expecting much from @blackpearlsteak two hundred gram Argentine grassfed ribeye ($30++). However, it blew past any expectations that I had, and it might’ve even eclipsed my already sublime USDA Prime ribeye steak by way of the tenderness metric.⠀

Just like my redolent ribeye steak, the Argentine ribeye was seasoned to piquant perfection, and the grill marks on it are absolutely alluring. Beef hailing from Argentina is fairly rare in the sunny isle of Singapore, and while it was my first time trying Argentinian beef, it most certainly won’t be the last.⠀

The steak was so stunningly soft & tender that you didn’t even need to chew on it. No, a couple of firm bites is all you need for the beef to yield. The fat marbling within was exceedingly enchanting, with each bite yielding a matchless mix of delicious fat & satisfying meat. I certainly wasn’t expecting it, but the Argentine ribeye is a diminutive powerhouse of a steak.⠀

I’m not crying for Argentina. This Argentinian grassfed ribeye is so good, it’s enough to make a grown man cry. Yes, this steak is that spendid, and you can take that to the bank.

Before we begin, I’d like to apologise for the appalling lack of quality in my photos. @blackpearlsteak lighting is great for a relaxed dinner, but not so much for taking #instaworthy photos. With that out of the way, let’s get into the meat of the matter.⠀

Black Pearl bills itself as the best steakhouse in Singapore, and I’m inclined to agree. They’ve got steak from the USA, Australia, Argentina AND New Zealand in a variety of different cuts. I went for the gargantuan, 350 gram USDA Prime ribeye from the land of the free. Yes, it’s $62++, but I swear on God it’s more than worth the price of admission. The tremendously tender beef was felicitously fatty, with a magnificent marbling of fat in the meat, and it was salted to sapid sumptuousness.⠀

I ordered it medium rare and it came just right, with each steak slice offering up minimal resistance as I greedily devoured it all. The béarnaise sauce I selected on the side cut through the richness of the beef quite effectively, and fuelled my carnivorous conquest of this splendid steak. The sides of potato salad & an arugula salad were done decently, but there was absolutely no way they could steal any of the limelight from the unctuous USDA Prime ribeye.⠀

With steaks this stellar, anyone and everyone would be exceedingly eBULLient about dining at Black Pearl Steakhouse.

I wasn’t planning on posting about the soup initally, but @blackpearlsteak Blue Swimming(sic) Crab Bisque ($15++) was too sublime to skip. I’ve had my fair share of crab bisques, but Black Pearl’s rendition might just trump ‘em all. The ambrosial aroma of crab boiled down alongside prawn into a sapid stock greets you just before you open your mouth to accept a spoonful of sumptuous soup.

The flavours are fabulous, and they tread the fine line between orgasmic & overwhelming, masterfully managing to stay on the pleasant side all the time. The heady, briny salinity of the creamy crab bisque triggers an overloaded of unami, and the shredded blue swimmer crabmeat within adds a touch of sweetness with every sip of soup.

Seriously, this stellar soup is a must have when you pay a visit to Black Pearl. Thank me later.

The escargots were baked in macadamia nut pesto & garlic butter, and the snails were served de-shelled. It was sorely lacking in salt, however, and was nowhere as satisfying as it could’ve been. However, the lack of salt enabled me to taste that the snails were incredibly clean, with a taste only slightly more insistent than chicken, and a chewy, bouncy texture akin to squid.

If you haven’t tried escargots before, Black Pearl’s a pretty great place to get your cherry popped. Provided they remember to adequately salt the snails from this moment on.

As my birthday treat a couple of weeks back, my dad brought me out to @blackpearlsteak, a restaurant that he’s been talking about for years. Yes, I kid you not. Years. It used to be Perle Noir back in the day, but they transformed themselves from a high end steakhouse into a more casual steakhouse & grill.⠀

The two French appetisers they’ve retained from their Perle Noir days are the escargots bourguignon ($14++) and the pan seared foie gras ($18++). The foie gras was stunningly & sinfully stellar, and I was absolutely awed by it. It’s a substantial slab of fatty liver from either a goose or a duck, and it was pan seared to nothing short of perfection. A charmingly charred crust concealed the gelatin-like liver within that quite literally melted on your tongue. It’s simply butter with a heavier, more gamey flavour, and it’s certainly an acquired taste. But goddamn do I love it.⠀

It’s offset by a sweet and slightly sharp apple chutney & rosemary balsamic reduction, but even that can’t fully counter the hedonistic high from the ravishing richness of the fatty liver. If I were having my last meal right now, this fantastic foie gras would undoubtedly be my appetiser of choice. With an appetiser like this, I can’t lose.

My neighborhood steakhouse now does bento boxes, perfect for a quick lunch or TV dinner when you're having back to back work calls all day. I like the variety of the bento box, but the full a la carte menu is available as well.
