I'd been wanting to have some good steak, and i read about how W Singapore has steaks that are pretty reasonably priced (: they have a really wide range in fact. from $35 all the way to $100+. not "affordable", as some blogs described it to be. but they do have quite a number in the $40-$50 range, which i suppose is still alright (: we started off on a high note with this complimentary serving of warm, fluffy bread ^^ it was really nice and soft and i would have kept taking more, if only i didn'

I'd been wanting to have some good steak, and i read about how W Singapore has steaks that are pretty reasonably priced (: they have a really wide range in fact. from $35 all the way to $100+. not "affordable", as some blogs described it to be. but they do have quite a number in the $40-$50 range, which i suppose is still alright (:

we started off on a high note with this complimentary serving of warm, fluffy bread ^^ it was really nice and soft and i would have kept taking more, if only i didn't have to save my stomach for the main courses haha
oh btw they don't serve tap water here, so i think one bottle of san pellegrino is $10. haha kinda exorbitant if you ask me.

if you order the steaks, you will be served these two bottles before your main course: the clear bottle is apple bourbon, which helps to cleanse your palate, while the other is bbq sauce to go with your meat (:

we also had three different kinds of salt to choose from. so cool!! although i can't remember what the different salts were
there was a rosemary one, another that was spicy and i can't rmb the last one. honestly, i couldnt realllly taste the difference between them haha (except the spicy one), but they definitely added flavour to the meat when necessary! (:

to start with, we ordered an appetizer, king prawns split and peppered ($25). it was sooo good! huge, fat, juicy prawns with springy fresh meat that tasted so succulent! (: it was a little hard peeling the meat from the shells (hmm haha actually means that it's not so fresh, no?
but it tasted alright!), but we enjoyed them thoroughly anyway ;)

the blackness of the steak is actually because they are all dry-aged steaks!
felt really lucky to be able to speak to one of the waiters after our meal, and he described the aging process to us. it actually results in a very different flavour when the steak is grilled, compared to non dry-aged steaks, and for these steaks, even if you order it rare, it'll be red, but not bloody
definitely good for squeamish people haha.

we ordered two steaks - this was the Skirt steak ($55) which is a blackmore australian full blood 9+ wagyu. it had a delicious flavour and barely required additional seasoning from the salt/bbq sauce. i still feel that such a high grade wagyu would actually taste better lightly seared (like when i ate it in hokkaido years ago...omg that was of an unmatchable standard!) rather than grilled this way.
