Step into the threshold of Morton’s The Steakhouse and feel instantly at ease. The Singapore branch of this international group retains its Chicago steakhouse atmosphere of low lighting and classy interiors (à la a gentlemen’s club). Coupled with food of the highest quality - s*** steaks, succulent seafood, and decadent desserts – and a good wine list, this steakhouse is perfect for when you need an excellent dining experience.
With steaks still being their specialty, we were pleasantly surprised by the myriad different options on their refreshed menu. We started with the **Chilled Ocean Platter**, featuring a mix of Alaskan crab legs, Maine lobster cocktail, jumbo shrimp cocktail, and fresh oysters. The most important thing about seafood is freshness, and boy, did the platter check that box! We especially enjoyed the oysters, which were big and well-flavoured (not too salty) and the sweet, juicy, crab legs.
Other noteworthy dishes to start with include the **Chopped Spinach Salad** and the **Tuna Tacos**. The former takes the combination of cooked chopped spinach, sautéed mushrooms, bacon bits, and get this, bacon juice to new heights. Trust us, it tastes a lot better than it looks. The latter is Morton’s take on our Tex-Mex favourite with an Oriental twist. Instead of typical taco shells and seared tuna, they pile tuna sashimi into deep fried wanton skins with salsa.
After we cleaned up the appetizers, the stars of the show made their appearance. The **Center-Cut Prime Ribeye** was a well-executed medium rare. Juicy, flavourful, and not too fatty – it’s basically everything you want in a perfect steak. Those after something less chewy but as orgasmic on the palate, try a new addition to the menu, the **Bone-In Veal Chop**. Melt in your mouth tender and oozing (young) beefy goodness; this veal chop is quite possibly the best we’ve had in Singapore...
