Food Reviews Contest

 

I am a fan of ieatishootipost food blog. The blog owner – Dr Leslie Tay – is a doctor by profession and part-time (or maybe full-time!) as a blogger who goes around blogging on “worthy” food! I happened to have the same mandate as his blog’s slogan – “Never waste your calories on yucky food”. Mum always comment that “I live to eat” rather than “eat to live”. haha..

 

ieatishootipost came out with a food review contest today! If you love to write reviews of places with yummy food, now is the time to win some prizes with your hobby! Check out details here

 

The blog also organises makan sessions at reasonable prices and of course, at good places too. Join its facebook group for details and periodic updates. Do “jio” me if you are intending to go for any makan sessions, ya? 🙂

Morton’s The Steakhouse Dinner

 

Recently we had the opportunity to enjoy a nice dinner at Morton’s. I have been to Morton’s bar before, but not The Steakhouse, so was looking forward to it! 🙂 Mum was kind enough to take care of Ethen while we stole out for some couple time. 🙂

Check out the sumptuous dinner we had:

 

menu The “special” menu that the restaurant prepared for us. Nice touch! 🙂

 

The interior of the restaurant as below. If you can see the waitress at the background, she is conducting an introductory “spiel” with all the fresh ingredients of the day. Hmm.. it is useful for those who are first timers, though I felt that her spiel became really monotonous after a few rounds! And not to mention the lobster on her tray which is struggling for life – I don’t like to see my food moving!!!!

Super fragrant (and HUGE) onion bread served complimentary. Being a bread lover, I can’t resist this! But after being warned by the waitress that the servings are huge, I held back the temptations to polish off the entire bread! See the before and after photos: I ate the best part – the crispy crust! haha.

We choose the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake with Mustard Mayonnaise Sauce for appetizer and a creamed spinach for side dish. The “jumbo” crab cake is nowhere near jumbo; but every mouthful is really “crabful”! Yumz! 🙂 The creamed spinach was a little disappointing though. I have read rave reviews on it, but it appeared a little too “gelat” (creamy) for me. Kim love it though.

The stars of the day: the famous steaks!

Ribeye Steak Kim’s: Ribeye Steak, USDA Prime

 

A dinner is never complete without a sweet ending. The hot molten chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream is good though not heavenly in my opinion.

Conclusion:

 

Service: Friendly and knowledgeable staff. When I made a reservation, the person-in-charge asked if there is a special occasion. That’s how the personalisation on the menu came about! Also, the waitress serving us offered to doggy bag our leftovers even without us asking! She is sweet enough to say: the portions here are huge, don’t be shy – we have tons of takeaway bags. haa..

 

Ambience: Nice warm lightings, but came across quite a noisy place with birthday songs and many business men talking shop!

 

Damage: S$320! But after offsetting a complimentary voucher from Kim’s company, we paid only S$20. heee… 🙂

 

Overall verdict: If you like your steaks chunky and huge, this place will be a good choice. The steaks made very good sandwiches the next day! However, Kim and I prefer the slimmer Kobe beef which we tried in Kobe, Japan before. Slimmer, teppanyaki style! 🙂 Otherwise, this it is quite an overrated place.  Good for a special occasion or when your company foots the bill! 🙂

Fish bones in my Filet-O-Fish!

 

No kidding! I bit into fish bones in my filet-o-fish!

2 days back, I was enjoying my favourite burger from Macdonald’s and lo and behold I fished out 2 small bones when I was half way through! Thank God I didn’t choke on them. But how dangerous if a young child is to eat this filet instead!

As a preventive measure, I decided to call the branch which I bought the meal from. The deputy manager was apologetic and promised an investigation with the supplier. Hopefully this is just a once off….but parents beware the next time you buy a filet for your child!
