We were at CUT to celebrate our 1st year wedding anniversary. Hailed as one of the top steakhouses in Singapore, I was rather disappointed with the quality of food. Compared to other celebrity steakhouses serving tastier steaks at more reasonable prices, the premium we paid was definitely not value-for-money. Sides were not inclusive and came with an equally hefty price tag as well. Assortment of Bread
This got to be one of the saltiest breads I’ve ever tasted. They had a wide assortment of bread rolls for our selection, but all tasted equally salty
The breadsticks that were placed on our table were perhaps the most appealing choice.

Tasting of New York Sirloin ($225++)
Assortment of Bread
Tasting of New York Sirloin
3 different varieties of tasting portions served side by side, all doneness medium-rare.
• (left) U.S.D.A. Prime, Illinois Corn Fed 120g
• (centre) American Wagyu From Snake River Farms 120g
• (right) True A5 Kobe Beef From Hyogo Prefecture 60g
The U.S.D.A Prime was chewy, rich and tantalising. The slightly charred surface added much flavour to the otherwise au naturel beef.
The American Wagyu had a smooth velvety texture, juicy flavour and a rich aftertaste that lingered on the palate. The marbling however, was not as great as expected.
The Kobe beef was a disappointment. It didn’t taste very fresh and lacked the bright colour and luster we were anticipating. The saving grace was the marbling of the beef which accentuate the smooth texture.
The sides were pretty interesting and delicious. In fact, they were even stole the limelight from the stars of the meal!Potato Puree ($18++)
The potato puree was exceptionally smooth and creamy with a hint of buttery herb and spices. Each bite literally melts in your mouth and was a delight to savour. Cream Spinach ($18++)
The spinach was well blended and flavourful. I especially love the creamy texture and buttery fragrance of this delicately prepared side.
An anniversary surprise to end our meal on a sweet note. The ice cream sorbet was silky smooth and light on the palate. A good way to wash down the heavy meal we just enjoyed
Ice Cream Sorbet
And last but not the least, we were pleasantly surprised (again) when we were presented a trio of nougat-like treats to complete our meal on an even sweeter note.
