I first visited aston's a few years back when I didn't know how to appreciate the yummy goodness of beef. Now my dad and I frequent the T1 outlet and this outlet more, because of after food shopping at i12 katong.
I ordered a porterhouse and dad had a prime ribeye xtra cut. Steak was good, both our meat had a smokey flavor to it, not sure about what they added or maybe they grilled them over charcoal. I like my steak medium rare but dad isn't a steak expert and has his well done (so wrong on so many levels, if you seriously despise raw beef then AT LEAST go for a medium). I think it's because of the cultural difference that makes Asians in general dislike the idea of raw beef.
For the sides, I had Mac & cheese with coleslaw while dad had a baked potato which I unfortunately did not get the opportunity to try because dad really likes his potatoes. I feel that the Mac & cheese sauce is somewhere between water and gravy, it's just not the right consistency for me and I would have definitely preferred it slightly thicker with more 'volume'.
We also ordered a mushroom soup side which came in the middle of our steak meal, is it hard to ladle your premade diluted canned soup into a bowl and dump two pretoasted garlic bread slices on the side?
Overall it's a great experience, really. I don't order any other main but beef, I just don't want anything but valuable money worthy beef whenever I visit aston's :)
