Food Review: Culina Bistro

Culina Bistro is gourmet boutique and a restaurant, supplying many of the steak restaurants in Singapore so freshness is guaranteed here. Prices are reasonable and service is efficient. IMG_3012 After ordering, we were served a complimentary bread basket. The bread rolls came warm and toasted and fluffy inside. My mum loved them. They were to be dipped olive oil with sharp balsamic or simply spread with butter. IMG_3013 The highlight of the meal was the beef. We picked a 1.2kg 1824 Premium Beef OP Ribs from Queensland ($72.70) with a preparation fee of $25. OP Ribs are also known as bone-in ribeye steak or côte de bœuf. The beauty of this cut is that it is juicy, flavourful and has great marbling. We ordered it medium-rare with black pepper and red wine sauce. The beef was grilled extremely well with a charred crust and juicy interior. We also ordered Potato Purée ($8) and it was creamy, smooth and buttery. All in all, Culina Bistro serves up hearty dishes at affordable prices. I would definitely come back again.

Food Review: Feedlot Steakhouse Bar & Grill

image

If you visit Tanglin Mall often, you can’t miss the huge Feedlot Steakhouse Bar & Grill signboard just opposite the road at Tanglin Post Office. My mum has always wanted to try this place, and thanks to an offer on Chope, we finally have a reason to eat here!

Feedlot Steakhouse has created an exclusive Lobster Mac & Cheese special for only $12++ when you make a reservation via the SoShiok website or the Chope app. Promotion ends this Saturday so quickly make your reservations here.

Lobster Mac & Cheese ($12)
Elbow pasta in rich, creamy lobster bisque & chunks of lobster meat, topped with cheese & lightly torched

If it smells nice, it’s bound to be good. The lobster bisque had a rich aroma and it definitely didn’t disappoint – it was very flavourful. However, there was only a layer of cheese on top so I would have liked it to be more cheesy but the dish was not bad overall. You get what you pay for, I guess.

Swiss Portobello Burger ($28)
Angus beef, bacon, emmenthal, portobello

I forgot to take an individual picture of my brother’s burger but the beef patty was cooked to a perfect medium-rare and it was so juicy. This was also the first time I liked eating tomatoes and all the flavours went well together. The oatmeal buns were soft and fluffy too. I dare say it’s the best burger I’ve tried so far!

Tenderloin Linguini ($25)
Char-grilled beef, roasted garlic, olive oil, chillies

The pasta was fragrant and cooked to al dente. Moreover, the beef was, again, perfectly done. The waiter said it was very spicy so you could ask for it to be less spicy if you can’t handle the heat – that’s what my dad did.

In summary, the lobster mac & cheese is nothing to shout about but I’d give it a try since it’s only $12 and come on, it’s lobster. Anyway, the best thing about this restaurant is their beef and I’d come back just for that.
