Evoking the same archetypal atmosphere of a classic high-end steakhouse in New York—from their mahogany furnishings to the sounds of Sinatra playing in the background—Morton’s The Steakhouse beautifully encapsulates the classic, speakeasy-style of American fine dining.
This steakhouse juggernaut in Mandarin Oriental impresses in more ways than one, from the impeccable standards upheld by their service staff to their array of phenomenal meat and seafood offerings. Every detail—the honest selection of succulent, wet-aged USDA Prime steaks, fresh seafood, extensive and award-winning wine list etc—attributes to why we absolutely love dining here.
The signature orders here include the wet-aged Prime Ribeye Steak and the colossal 48-ounce Porterhouse but for non-meat eaters, they also serve up a solid range of fresh seafood such as Maine Lobster, Honey-Balsamic Glazed Ora King Salmon and the must-try Seared Cod with Romesco Sauce that you can opt to have off their seasonal menu.
It’s easy to feel intimidated by a high-end restaurant like Morton’s especially so in all its classy, mahogany-clad glory, but truly, there is so much more to this steakhouse institution that goes far beyond just being a destination for business meetings and special occasions. With their stellar line-up of house classics coupled with their ever-changing seasonal menu, there’s bound to be something to tickle even the most discerning of palates.
Sunday brunches have a very special place in our hearts because it is the most important meals over the weekend; bigger than breakfast and more enticing than lunch, there is really nothing not to love about a good Sunday brunch.
Nestled in Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, Melt Café is one of the best choices if you are in the Marina Bay area. Their Sunday Champagne Brunch is simply out of the world—we are talking about endless gourmet food, including bubbles and fun in-house entertainment for everyone in the family.
From fresh oysters of different varieties, premium sashimi from the Japanese counter, a carving station that will satisfy the carnivores to their ever popular Indian cuisine and an outdoor barbecue grill, this is one champagne brunch that is deserving of an encore.
Champagne Dim Sum Brunch buffet at Cherry Garden
After I took sip(s) of champagne, someone stared at me for giggling, but ten seconds later, she did the same thing. Champagne does funny things to people, and you know what? Weekends are meant for Champagne Brunch!
I never liked the idea of Dim Sum Buffet. Before my virgin attempt at Cherry Garden’s Champagne Dim Sum Brunch, that is. It seemed ridiculous to me that I’d have to fork out 50 bucks just to gorge myself silly, when I could have treated myself better by going ala carte style and probably pay a lot lesser.
When I was having dinner at a Chinese restaurant two weeks back, I was rather disturbed by the staffs who constantly changed my plates even though I told them it’s all right to leave it. It’s fine to change my plates when they are dirty and almost filled, but it is entirely a different matter when the plate is hardly touched and they insist on changing it.
Honestly, I’m not the biggest environmental-conscious person around. But when you hang out with Miss Earth Singapore, it’s really impossible not to be influence by her. Along the way, I started to think about some of our actions that have an impact on the environment.
How often should we change our plates during the course of dinner? And what can we do more to support the Eco friendly restaurants?
“The Morton’s Steakhouse Burger is really good!” My friend Mike told me solemnly. “It’s possibility the best burger in Singapore.”
When he first raved that the best burger in Singapore was from Morton’s Steakhouse Mandarin Oriental Hotel, I was really excited to check it out for myself.
