Turn the heat up on a decadent dinner at SKIRT at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove, a trailblazing steakhouse, where prime cuts of meat and fresh seafood are beautifully prepared on the centrepiece parilla grill.
The dinner experience at one of Sentosa’s best restaurants is inherent in each detail characterising the chef’s collaborative ethos of technique and ingredients, beginning from the butterflies on the reception stand to lighting and wood panels that complement the sensational aromas emanating from the grill. A world-class wine cellar featuring rare and distinguished vintages enhances supreme meats such as Blackmore 100% full blood Japanese Wagyu with a marble score of 9+ and Australian Tajima Wagyu beef, and daily ocean specials featuring only the most sustainable and freshest seafood.

I was so impressed with my overall experience at Skirt that I felt compelled to write a review - and I'm not one to write reviews!
Their service won me over before we even dined in the restaurant. When I called to make a reservation and informed them that it was my bf's birthday, they asked me for his name and told me they would give us a complimentary slice of cake!
And when we arrived at the restaurant, the service was impeccable. The waiters were always around with a smile and extremely attentive to our needs, perhaps even too much!
As for the food, it was sumptuous. We had complimentary bread with chorizo oil (served in a dropper bottle - how cute!) and seaweed sauce. The bread was fluffy and the blend of flavours was interesting. We ordered a Blackmore Australian full-blood Wagyu skirt steak at $48 for 250g (their signature steak) to share. They served an apple bourbon palate cleanser before the mains arrived and to me this was an indication of how attentive they are to the overall dining experience. I've never tried skirt steak before but it was definitely one of the best steaks I've ever had. Although the medium was slightly on the raw side, the beef was very tender, juicy and flavourful (but not gamy!). My bf commented that it was the best steak he's ever had :) We also ordered wild sauteed mushrooms ($12) and asparagus with quail eggs and burnt butter ($8). The sides were surprisingly inexpensive and offer good bang for the buck. The mushrooms were juicy and soft and again, my mushroom-loving boyfriend said it was the best he's ever had. The asparagus was good though not out of this world. The burnt butter had a crunchiness to it and had the taste of caramel, adding a new dimension to the dish.
For dessert, we had our complimentary cake. It was good though nothing to rave about (can't complain because it's free!) but I was very touched by the gesture. We also ordered the torched honey meringue with coconut and pineapple ice cream ($18). The meringue melts in your mouth and the coconut ice-cream is light. It had pineapple chunks and a cake base to give it an added dimension. Definitely a must try if you're visiting Skirt!
On the whole, I have no doubt that Skirt was the right choice for my bf's birthday celebration. You can also take a walk along the bay to admire the yachts after dinner ;)
Skirt reminds me of a fine dining American steakhouse that offers good quality dry aged beef, which is dry aged in-house as well as an assortment of high quality seafood as well, an ideal place to splurge on that special occasion.
For a big bite, do start off with the hearty King Prawn, large and grilled to perfection.
For something lighter, the Tuna Tartare is an ideal choice, a little tart and something ideal to open up that palette for that big main course coming ahead.
Speaking of main courses, there are a lot of options to pick from based on your budget. What I like though in my three visits there the quality of the steaks are executed well no matter the price point.
For dessert, end with the Venezuelan Mud Pie. I mean, if you are going to have a hearty meal, go all the way right?
Skirt is the best place for steak - even morton's can't beat Skirt. The best cut would be the Skirt itself. It's done so perfectly! Their side dishes are also fantastic. PS: apologies, I forgot to take a pix of my main but took a pix of their special instead
