It has been almost one and half year since I last visited Wooloomooloo Steakhouse at Swissotel the Stamford. This time I am back for their newly launched Weekend Brunch. The weekend brunch comes in a 5 course meal with choices for each course. The 5 course meals at $68++ comes with Breakfast Item, Soup/Salad, Appertiser, Wooloomooloo Classic and Dessert.
Egg Benedict 4/5
The Breakfast Item comes with 3 choices Egg Benedict, Fried Hen's Egg and Cobb Sandwich. Even though Wooloomooloo is a steakhouse, I am glad that it included egg items in the brunch menu. Inevitably my partner and I had the 2 egg dishes on the menu. I had the Egg Benedict which comes with poached egg, and smoked salmon on a English muffin drizzled with hollandaise sauce. A classic breakfast dish that brightens up one's morning.
Fried Hen's Egg 3.8/5
My partner has the Fried Hen's Egg which comes with a sunny side up, hash brown, avocado and tomato. Individually each ingredients took its place and shine on the plate. As a dish, it just felt like its too simple and it is missing a component to bring it all together.
Wooloomooloo Tuna Nicoise 4/5
The next Soup/Salad course has 4 choices in French Onion Soup, Lobster Bisque, Classic Caesar Salad and Wooloomooloo Tuna Nicoise. I decided to go for the healthy greens of Wooloomooloo Tuna Nicoise. A clean, light and refreshing salad.
Lobster Bisque 4/5
My partner has gone for the Lobster Bisque soup which is totally the opposite. The it rich and robust with a dash of cognac and lobster meat.
Trio of Oysters 4.2/5
For the next course which is the Appertiser, we decided to go for the seas among the 6 choices of Tasmanian Smoked Salmon, Trio of Oysters, Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, Wild Mushroom Risotto, Burreta Mozzarella and Pasta of the Day. The Trio of Oysters was plump and fresh with a choice of having it natural or kilpatrick.
Jumbo Lump Crab Cake 4.2/5
The Jumbo Lump Crab Cake unfortunately was not as jumbo as the description. Served with mustard mayonnaise, tartar sauce and Tahitian lime, I can hear the internal voice screaming for more of the delish crab cake.
Beef Wellington 4.2/5
There are 5 choices of the mains which are all Wooloomooloo's classic. The 5 choices are Tasmanian Salmon Fillet, Beef Wellington, Australian Black Angus vs USDA Prime Sirloin, Australian Grass Fed Filet Mignon and From the Sea. We are at a steakhouse so quite naturally both of us went for the Beef Wellington and Australian Grass Fed Filet Mignon. Encased in a crusty pastry with parma ham and foie gras, the Beef Wellington was given a luxurious boost to the already flavourful beef.
Australian Grass Fed Filet Mignon 4.2/5
For those that prefer to enjoy the natural flavour of the beautiful piece of steak, the Australian Grass Fed Filet Mignon with watercress and roasted cheery tomatoes on the vine will satisfy your palate. Each main also comes with a side and one can choose from the choice of creamy spinach, sauteed mushrooms, creamy corn, steamed broccoli, french fries, mashed potato. We went for the creamy spinach and sauteed mushroom.
Wooloomooloo Cheesecake 4/5
Lemon and Lime Pie 4/5
The 5 course brunch menu comes to happy closure with 3 choices of dessert in the Cheesecake, Lemon & Lime Pie and Bread & Butter Pudding. The lightness of the Cheesecake was excellently paired with a yummy scoop of yoghurt sorbet. The Lemon & Lime Pie is topped with Italian meringue, orange chips and vanilla tuile.
Wooloomooloo Steakhouse's 5 course weekend brunch menu is very reasonable priced with a good selection of choices in each course. Family with kids need not worry as there is a kid menu catering for them with a choice of Fish & Chips, Spaghetti Bolognaise or Mini Cheese Burgers at $18++ per item.
