Go for its set lunches

Berkshire Pork Chop, well-marinated in a Mongolian glaze of hoisin and black bean chilli sauce, tasted better than it looked. Succulent and tender, it was neither too dry nor tough but so sweet that I scrapped away the sauce on top. Served with sautéed red cabbage reminiscent of German sauerkraut and complimentary homemade condiments of beetroot chutney, chilli mustard and onion jam. Could neither rave about nor fault Mixed Seafood Grill – generous portion of grilled salmon and prawns, calamari stuffed with herbs and breadcrumbs, served with roasted tomatoes and zesty parsley salsa on hot cast iron. See full review and pictures at http://live2eatdottravel.blogspot.sg/2014/10/the-chop-house.html.

2-course set lunches, only available on weekdays, consist of an appetiser and a main course. And its menu changes every week. Crispy calamari, coated and fried ‘til crispy, lived up to its name and was the best appetiser of the three we ordered. The other two, Potato and Fennel Soup as well as Parma Ham and Plum Salad, were mediocre at best. As for main courses, Pan Fried Sea Bass was nothing to shout about unlike Australian grass fed beef Tenderloin and The Chop House Pork Burger. With a centre that was still of a pretty pink, the former was lovely whereas the latter hearty. Thick, juicy and tender homemade patty of minced pork with ginger, chilli and coriander which made it all the more delectable was sandwiched between fluffy soft bread. With applewood smoked bacon, pickled cucumber and of course, lettuce and tomato slices.

80% rating on HGW? Are you guys kidding me?

Folks who voted up must not have had good steak before.

The beef (porterhouse steak) was definitely deep frozen meat. It was tasteless, the meat was tough, and not something you would expect from a bone-in steak. Understandbly, Oz/NZ steaks tend to be not as flavorful as US/EU ones, but this goes beyond our already low expectations. The juices from the steak were disgustingly rancid (especially the parts close to the bone).

Anyone who enjoys a good steak would agree that it should be at least of 250g (excluding bone weight) to retain its juices, prevent overcooking and to keep the meat moist. Meat lovers would also know how important the bite is - we love to sink our teeth into a thick slab of meat as opposed to something like a McDonald's beef patty. The Chop House steaks do not meet this basic requirement. We should have walked away when we saw the menu but decided to give it a shot based on the ratings here. To all of you who brought this up to 80% - THANKS MAN!

PS. The chicken was stale (probably deep frozen meat as well). Veg sides served were . Mash was the only edible thing on our plates.

Spent roughly 100 bucks on this. We have been chopped by the Chop House. Oh well, at least their name was apt.

Dear RT,

As you have decided to insult all the good people that have written positive reviews on HungryGoWhere for The Chop House, I felt compelled to post a reply.

Firstly, our steaks and chicken are not frozen. Your comment on the weight of what you envision a steak to be is also unfounded probably because you have no experience working in a good restaurant before. Regardless, ever so often we have competitors or friends of the competition that post a review on us. I therefore understand where you are coming from.

For your next dinner out, I strongly encourage you to dine somewhere else.

To all our loyal guests who have posted positive reviews on The Chop House, I thank you and ask that you not be perturbed by RT's inappropriate comments.

Regards,
The Chop House Management

Cheaper alternative to Jamie Oliver's

Located just beside Jamie Oliver in Vivocity, this dimly-lit restaurant is extremely cozy for nice chillout dinners. With a wide variety of cocktails, great cuts of meat, the pricing are pretty mid-range, and the quality is good.   Quesadillas- Chicken or Beef ($18) Best quesadillas in town - with tomatoes and jack's cheddar cheese, folded into a bread tortilla and cooked till cheese is melted and tortilla is crispy, served with gucamole, sour cream and salsa pico de gallo.   Black & Blue Burger ($22) One half pound beef patty blackened in cajun spices, topped with homemade blue cheese dressing. Served with tater tots    We were not very hungry, and hence ordered something from the starters and mains section to share.

The Quesadillas, which we orderd with Chicken ($18), was nicely marinated and the sauces went well with it. It's a tad spicy, but tolerable for someone who can't take spiciness well.

 Their Black & Blue Burger ($22) is one of those I would recommend- juicy, and totally not stingy with the blue cheese. However, the tater tots turned me off- basically, they're like pizza hut's star mash potatoes, except in marshmallow shapes.   Nonetheless, I am sure the other dishes will do as well as these. I will be back to try the others!

excellent service, excellent food

My partner and I arrived whilst they were hosting a corporate function but the maitre d checked if there was a table for us anyway and there was! Service was very good. The waiter was enthusiastic and prompt. He was really passionate about their sweet potato fries so we ended up choosing that over normal fries. We're glad we took that, it was crispy and crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. We shared the short ribs for our mains. Having only ever had short ribs in a Korean bbq place, I was really looking forward to this. it didn't disappoint. the meat was so tender and you could taste the marbling. we both enjoyed it very much. dessert was Apple two ways: Apple bread pudding and this other "apple popiah " can't quite remember the name. both were very very good. overall, we were very happy with the quality of the food and service. songs that were playing were great too!

Great Find

Needed dinner after a movie at VivoCity and remembered a friend had mentioned this place. Was pleasantly surprised by the experience. Food and service were very good, and the burger really hit the spot. Also had the Thoo Japanese Yen, a fantastic sake-based cocktail. All around, this place was a great find. Looking forward to coming back with the munchkins to try the kids menu and USDA steak (heard this place is related to Wooloomooloo steak house).
