Morton's The Steakhouse @ Mandarin Oriental Singapore - New Spring Menu With Some Twists and Fun


For this Spring, Morton’s of Chicago at Mandarin Oriental Singapore has brought to its all-American classic menu a delectable new Spring items. These new items on the menu will have your familiar flavours but with some twists and fun.

Wagyu Royal Ribeye Cap Steak 3.5/5

If you are one of Morton's regulars, try the 2 new steaks offerings for a change,. Known to be the most sought after cut of American wagyu beef, the 8oz American Wagyu Royal Ribeye Cap Steak ($112) may just cap your day with a high note. I'm not a true beef connoisseurs but I believe its price tag does say something about its flavour and value.

American Wagyu Filet Mignon 3/5

For a little twist of flavour, The 7oz American Wagyu Filet Mignon with Fire Roasted Poblano Butter ($108) pairs up with Mexican spice. The mild to medium heat of the pepper-infused butter teases the taste buds just a little, not too much. This cut is leaner though and more salt is appreciated to highlight its flavour.

Nueske’s Bacon Steak with Peach Bourbon Glaze 3.8/5

What set the temperature high that evening, other than the Mortinis, was the Nueske’s Bacon Steak with Peach Bourbon Glaze ($20). A bacon, yet a steak at the same time - thick cut of apple-smoked pork belly (12oz) being prepared in the same manner as a traditional steak. Coated with a sweet peach-bourbon glaze, the sweet-savoury chemistry exuding from this thick cut of pork, along with its fats was pleasurable. Those on the table consuming it, was like posing for a Magnum shot!

Burrata 3/5

Like all richly flavoured food, it is always good to harmonise all that goodness with something light and refreshing. The creamy Burrata, served with Grilled Asparagus & Baby Heirloom Tomato Salad ($32++) with be an excellent choice to get the balance.

Seared Cod with Romesco Sauce 3/5

What can match up with a steak is probably a quality piece of cod fish. The new seafood item, Seared Cod with Romesco Sauce ($78) is inspired by Catalonian dishes. The pan-seared cod is served atop of a classic sauce made of roasted red peppers and toasted nuts. Smokey, tangy, sweet and nutty, the Romesco sauce adds much vibrancy to this dish.

The new menu is available from 19 April 2018 for a limited time only.

Roastmania @ Aljunied Ave 2 - The Roasted Chicken's Skin Is Crispy


I have been to Aljunied almost every weekends and sometime I will settle lunch at the nearby Geylang East Centre Food Centre. One of the stalls I tried is Roastmania Authentic Traditional Roast Delights & Chicken Rice. I understand it has recently moved and re-located down the road. It is now at Shiyun Food Junction, opposite McDonald's.

Roasted Chicken 4.2/5

I ordered both the Roasted Chicken and Sio Bak to try. The platter even comes with some sliced cucumber and salted vegetables. The special thing I like about the roasted chicken is the crispy skin. You can see from the picture, a layer of crispiness sits on top of the tender chicken.

Sio Bak 3.5/5

The Sio Bak has a delightful biscuit-like skin with juicy and fatty meat. While the skin is crispy, I thought the meat is not roasted enough and it is a bit too fat.


Overall the stall sells pretty good roasted meat, this probably can be justified by the constant long queues at the stall. My review only based on the roasted chicken and sio bak which I tried. I probably need another re-visit to check out the other roasted items on the menu.
