Beefing up their game – pun intended – Hilton Singapore’s Opus Bar & Grill introduces carefully selected prime grade Greater Omaha steaks, a great addition to their already amazing Australian steaks line-up. The success story behind Opus Bar & Grill’s iconic steaks comes from their open-flame charcoal grill and the use of a Himalayan salt tile dry-aging cabinet to dry-age the signature Australian Rangers Valley OP rib.
Steak prices for the newly-launched Greater Omaha Steaks are priced from S$68++ only and that’s supreme value for quality steaks! Non-steak lovers also have new fish and chicken options to look forward to.
Here’s the cherry on top – you can enjoy free flow house wines with every steak order! Steaks and wine; ain’t it going to be a wonderful night?
The highlight of the night goes to Opus Bar & Grill’s new selection of three prime grade cuts from U.S. Greater Omaha which are known for having strict requirements in keeping up to the high standards of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The 220g U.S. Greater Omaha steaks that are served to you are certified 100 days corn-fed beef cuts that taste well on its own without the need for extra seasoning.
The 220g US Prime Cut 100-Days Corn-Fed Sirloin (S$68++) is a cut that everyone can enjoy. It is a mix between the juicy fatty ribeye and meaty tenderloin, with a delicate, marbled texture and a slightly smoky flavour.
We love the green peppercorn sauce with this steak, or just a simple and light sprinkle of salt.
If you love a juicier and more intensely buttery steak, ribeye cuts are always the best. It was unanimous – the 220g US Prime Cut 100-Days Corn-Fed Ribeye (S$88++) was everyone’s favourite at dinner.
The ribeye really needs no additional seasoning. The flavours are so fragrant, especially when they are grilled over a flame. To taste the true goodness of these gorgeous meats, have them on its own. However, if you love a good sauce with your steak, a lighter garlic herb butter sauce makes a perfect pairing.
Lastly, from the Greater Omaha range is the 220g US Prime Cut 100-Days Corn-Fed Tenderloin (S$78++). This is probably the most tender Tenderloin; most tenderloin cuts leave us chewing forever because they are more often than not tough. It is impressive how the meat was still able to sustain most of its moisture and natural flavour.
Sprinkle some salt, have it with a béarnaise sauce and eat it alongside Opus Bar & Grill’s garlic mashed potato. The mashed potato itself is worth a mention. We never had a more buttery and smooth version that goes so perfectly with the tender meat.
If you do not fancy red meat, which happens when dining in big groups because surely someone doesn’t take beef, that’s when the new items on the menu will be your answer.
The Roasted Sakura Chicken (S$48++, good for 2 pax) is a beautiful and comforting option; rotisserie chicken always does the trick. The chicken is roasted with rosemary. The seasoning on the skin of the chicken turned out to be wonderfully crispy and fragrant, and the white flesh is succulent and tender.
What turned out to be the underdog was the Wild Sea Bass (S$36++). We never thought that we would fall in love with a fish dish in a steak restaurant, but this sea bass did just that. With a nice sear skin-side down, you get a good crisp on the side. It sits on top of clams, black mussels, artichokes and vine tomatoes in a very sweet seafood broth.
We were blown away. And we are afraid when we next return to Opus Bar & Grill, this dish of Wild Sea Bass might distract us from the steaks.
We ended our dinner on a high note with the Bombe Alaska (S$14), which was on its own a sight to behold. When the flames caught onto the white fluffy meringue, the top layer started burning while the ice cream on the inside remained intact; it was show stopping.
The meringue sits atop cream cheese ice cream and mandarin orange sorbet. The intense creamy ice cream sure balanced out the lighter and more refreshing sorbet well.
Opus Bar & Grill’s popular ‘Steak with Free Flow of Wines‘ dinner special is reintroduced and is happening now from Sunday to Thursday every week. With a purchase of any steak from S$58++ on the regular dinner menu, you get free-flow house wine – pick from red, white and sparkling.
