One thing I dislike about LDRs is that you don’t get to go on dinner dates. When I go out for a meal, I’d take photos of my food so I can zap it to Plaid Boy and vice versa. It’s a cute coupley thing to do, but it’s not quite the same as getting a spoonful off your partner’s plate for a proper taste is it? I’m glad I’m seeing him this weekend! I’m excited to have date night every night before we fly off to do wedding preps in Manila. =)
Last time I visited Singapore, Plaid Boy took me to Mohamed Sultan Road (again) to satisfy my hunger for meat. Veggie-feeders, I’m so sorry. You’ve got to look away (again).
Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse is a proper steakhouse upped by a little fancy dust. The mood was very masculine when we walked in: bull hide on the floors, heads mounted on wood panelled walls, leather upholstered waiting chairs and rows of wine by the shelves. It reminded me of my late granddad’s sitting room sans his signature spiced, musky scent.
Complimentary focaccia board. Woot.
I ordered the striploin sampler plate ($78) which features 175g cuts of their signature pieces: grain-fed Wagyu (ordered rare) and grass-fed Angus (ordered medium rare). It came with a pancetta and taleggio stuffed onion which I absolutely loved. Creamy, cheesy and warming sans the dreaded onion breath.
Some of you might know I’m not a massive fan of marbling but I thoroughly enjoyed the rare Wagyu piece in its MS6+ glory. It was soft to the knife, melt in your mouth, and perfectly seasoned.
I made a decent dent on the grass-fed Angus too. It was the leaner piece but was still super tender and perfectly seasoned. Admittedly, I thought I was going to love this more but the Wagyu was just so good!
We only ordered three sides but the portions were relatively big. I was excited about the mixed mushrooms ($13) but was disappointed as it was a bit underseasoned; charcoal grilled asparagus ($15) which were pretty straightforward and delicious; and Tuscan fries ($13) seasoned with salt and rosemary.
Plaid Boy ordered the Angus rib-eye ($58) which he happily enjoyed with a glass of nero d’avola. I’ve forgotten the name, but he chose a better red paired with his food than I did.
The servers were all too nice and mindful: helpful enough to be at your beck and call and to answer your questions about the menu but also not too eager so as to invade your private time.
Overall I liked BTS: good ambience, good wine selection, good steak. I’d recommend you visit when you find yourself craving for some meat in SG. Their cuts are best served with a date too 😉
