Steak

To please the carnivores in us.

The cuts may have changed a little over time, as did the presentation and sides, but Bochinche’s steaks have never missed the mark. The cook on them has consistently been perfect, exactly to our requested fondness. Seasoning’s always spot on and I’ve never wanted for more/less salt. Quality of the meats is never in doubt. And can I highlight that they make the best best bestest chimichurri sauce? Perfect with all their steaks.

I pride myself on being able to at least take a nice photo and do food justice yeah, but when it ain't good it just ain't good lah I'm sorry. Short of photoshopping the whole dish there isn't much I can, or am willing to, do to tzsuj it up. Let's start with the meat: both his ribeye and my flat iron cuts were cooked way over our requested doneness. My medium-rare to medium came as a shocking medium-well — almost well-done actually. Kudos for seasoning their steak well, but the bad cook on the steaks were really unforgivable especially on a cut as lean as my flat iron. Don't get me started on the sides. "Creamed spinach" was more blanched spinach (with its accompanying water) mixed with a touch of cream; "beef fat rice" was basically just rice with a bit of colour and seasoning; "parmesan corn" was hard and cold grated parmesan over cold corn sitting in water (seriously aren't these two components supposed to yknow bind together); and brussel sprouts was aight. Yes the prices are low (mine's $18 for 250g), but looking at their contemporaries like Featherblade and even Aston's really, affordability shouldn't encroach on quality.

My oh my, what a fabulous dish. I didn't quite know what to expect ordering this Steak & Eggs, considering Stateland’s propensity to fusion-ize their dishes. "Spiced steak" was definitely a hint, but I was completely taken aback when I took a first whiff of the dish and...is that mala??? The aroma from the familiar peppercorn hits you on the first bite, bringing across all the nuances of mala without actually carrying that much of a numbing spice. And as if they're worried taste ain't enough to impress, the cook on the steak is perfect, rendering it incredibly tender and juicy. Once you're done savouring the meat, tear up some of that buttery, toasted brioche, mop up the remaining juices, then dunk it into the runny yolk. I have to be admit that $20 is quite steep considering the size of the steak, but I like this so much imma ask you to try it anyway.

Imma go right out and be honest: I can’t say that this is the cheapest or best steak in town, but I can cross my heart and promise you they’ve got among the best service in town. Ok food wise, they’ve got the cook down pat (which is amazing considering the insane crowd) so you can be sure your medium rare will be exactly as you expect it. Meat is extremely tender — so much that you barely need the knife really. My peeve though, that many prolly won’t agree with, is precisely that there isn’t any bite to the steak. Even with a tenderloin I like having some texture to my steak, so it’s entirely a personal preference that this ain’t really up my alley. I’d also rather they salt the meat while cooking it instead of after, cause you’re really only relying on those few flakes and the sauce for seasoning. The service though 🙆🏻‍♀️💕✌🏻👌🏻 As packed as they were our table was constantly checked on, and the team very kindly replaced my steak when I mentioned it tasted funky. I may not be the most impressed with their food, but for the impeccable service I’d return again and again. #CEBeatsCBD

Many burpplers’ serenading of Artichoke’s date pudding got me set on visiting, but man their savouries were what sealed the meal for me — most notably their Steak & Eggs (S$28++). Soft scrambled eggs that are perfectly seasoned, silky and buttery as hell, paired with 150g of tender and juicy flank steak cozily blanketed in a nutty, moreish pistachio pesto. As if that’s not enough, they throw in the yummiest (I kid you not) za’atar croissant. You’d never have tried the classic steak and eggs like this, that I can promise you; and for this it’s well worth the trip (and wait) down.

The S&S: one of Two Men Bagel's newer creations, and an absolute shebang on the tastebuds. Their signature handrolled bagel generously stuffed with slices of juicy steak, earthy shrooms, emmental cheese, caramelised onions, jalapeño and greens — trust me, it tastes every bit as yummy as it sounds. The combination's really savoury, so I'd suggest opting for a slightly sweeter bagel (say their onion or cinnamon raisin?) for a balanced combo!

I'm a huge fan of their Rodeo bagelwich which IMHO is utterly addictive and absolutely delish (trust me, I've led many down that dark path), so heartbroken's an understatement when I found it's no longer on TMBH's menu. In its place is Brisk: generous, chunky slices of salted brisket, melted emmental cheese, bread and butter pickles and mustard. To my utter relief, this is nothing short of stellar as well. Brisket's unbelievably moist and juicy, literally just melts in your mouth, and the seasoning is just spot on. It is, however, fattier than the older Rodeo; those who prefer a slightly leaner lunch should opt for the S&S instead 😉

Even though I've been to Philly...I've actually not had a Philadelphia cheesesteak before 😪 So nothing else to compare this against save for my imagination and technical understanding unfortunately. Roll's chewy and nicely toasted, though I'd have liked a slightly crisp exterior; sliced ribeye's generous, juicy, and moist; and then oooh that gooey and salty cheese whiz. Our Fully Loaded ($18) came jam-packed with jalapeños, sautéed shrooms, caramelised onions, and green peppers, and is definitely filling for one. Given all that goodness, my only peeve is...WAI MY 🧀 SO LITTLE 😩😩😩😩 (Psst, location tag ain't up yet so don't refer to this random location tag!)

One Night Only's Chicken Fried Steak is really something to behold — though entirely something else to eat. Was really excited to down this huge meal after being tipped off on Instagram and headed down with a huge appetite. Yet impressive as this looks, the thick, biscuit-like breading with a 3:1 ratio to meat was, to me, quite unpleasant. Ripping those apart left me with just a thin slice of meat 😩 Gravy may have been it's only saving grace, but that little pool of gravy was way too little to last past the first few bites!

Mountain yam rosti, old fashioned Bismarck wagyu rump, runny egg yolk, chunky tomato dressing, stir fried water spinach.
.
One of the items from ODP's new #GFDF brunch menu, which did nothing to help me decide if I enjoy their new culinary direction. Kudos to cooking the beef perfectly 👌🏻 though pairing a sweet tomato chutney-like sauce was quite abrupt and odd. The rosti too, though commendably crisp, was julienned way too thin and tasted like a savoury, crunchier cousin of our childhood cuttlefish snack — not shiok at all.

If you like your meat red, moist, and just really silky, then you'd find a friend in Kilo's Beef Short Rib Steak. Simply seared, the generous portion of short rib is juicy and tender, sure to please all 🐮 fans. Served with a tangy shiitake salad and some legit onion rings, it's a huge steal at $33.

Yep, it really does look that red. Don't get me wrong it's juicy, moist, melt-in-your-mouth and just everything good; but for someone like me who prefers her beef medium and her lamb medium-well, this is a tad too raw for me. If you can get past the colour though, you'd prolly love this cause everything's executed perfectly and the flavours are just dayum.
