Wooloomooloo Steakhouse - Gastronomical Birthday Party – Session 3, The Finale.


After two nights of great food, we close the chapter of this year birthday gastronomical food trilogy journey at Wooloomooloo. I am not sure how much weight I have gain, but I can feel that my waistline getting bigger and my pants getting tighter.

So, what brings us to this place. Actually, Hoongyy recommended this during our last food tasting with HGW, but after a some research in the 'cloud', we find that Wooloomooloo is the place to try. Special mention for this place is the 'Tomahawk'.



When you enter the restaurant, you will be greeted by their showcase of champagnes  wines and follow with the friendly receptionists that will show you to your tables. The dining area is slightly dark, with the yellowish light lighting up the room. This allow you to have a more intimate dining experience with the background of Singapore CBD night scenery. The chopped log (wood for fire) decoration on the wall, create a rustic feeling and nice touch in between casual and find dining.

For starter, we ordered Foie Gras (seared duck liver served with toasted homemade brioche, apple compote and assorted season and organic black pepper) and classic Caesar salad. Before we get to our starter, we were served the loaf of onion bread. It is warm, with the texture of a yeasted bread with onion and goes nicely with the unsalted butter. I like my butter salted, so I add a little bit of salt to the butter to make mine salted butter.

The Foie Gras serving is small, but it was perfectly done. The Foie Gras is crispy on the outside with a buttery texture on the inside. Goes well with the brioche, apple compote and different types of pepper. I feel this plating can do with another extra piece of the liver on it ha..ha...

The Ceasar salad is fresh, but they seems to be a bit stingy on the dressing.

Next come the star of the show, The 'Tomahawk'. How to best describe the size, imagine you are eating steak during the Flintstones age. The Tomahawk is a whole rib with steak, come from 70-day grain fed young Black Angus beef, 2-3 weeks wet aged from Queensland, Australia. Grilled to perfection medium rare and well rested before it is serve. The steak part is tender and juicy, while the meat near the bone gets a bit charred, if you like the bbq flavour. The aging process really helps to break down the meat. Yum Yum, I am drooling now.

This steak is definitely for 2 person. If you are a small eater, you can share for three. We ordered mash potatoes for the sides and it is the creamiest mash potatoes we ever had. It is smooth, creamy and full of flavour. There are 4 different sauce to accompany the steak, Au Jus, Peppercorn, Mushroom and Red Wine Madeira. I like the Au Jus best with my steak and I combine it with fresh lemon juice to cut through the fats in the meat and you won't feel overwhelm by it.

For your information, in some other steakhouse, the Tomahawk is also called Cote de Boeuf. In the menu, just look for the rib eye on the bone that serve for 2 person. The difference is that other steakhouse will cut the bone closer to the meat, instead of leaving it as long as the the Tomahawk.

For desert, we ordered Wooloomooloo Lemon & Lime Pie to share. It is tangy sweetness at its best. I am actually a sucker for bread and butter pudding, however, I don't know where to put it as I am basically stuffed.

The service here is excellent. You will be well take care off. The waiter is very knowledgeable of the menu and will go the extend to get what you need. In my case they it was slices of lemon. They will try to push for the sparking or still water, but if you are not for it, just order plain water. I can't comment on the wine, because I can't touch any alcohol at the moment due to my medication.

Overall, this is a great place to go for steak. Excellent moo moo and excellent service, what else can you ask for. The best thing, it is well worth you money. I am already looking forward to my next visit. I heard the beef wellington is a must try. MOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
