White asparagus season again with Marriott Pool Grill–And the steaks are perennially good!

It’s white asparagus season again, so for those of you who love white asparagus, now’s the time to indulge when these beautiful stems are at their best. And for those of you who have never tried white asparagus, I highly recommend you to, not least because of the nutrients that’s packed in them. They are juicier, more tender and sweeter than the green asparagus variety.

From now until 30 April, you can sample white asparagus at Marriott Pool Grill, specially flown in from the Netherlands. There are 3 ala-carte dishes to choose from.

Marriott Pool Grill - Classic ( Steamed white asparagus, poached egg, hollandaise sauce)  $20

 Classic (Steamed white asparagus, poached egg, hollandaise sauce) $20

This is the most affordable dish if you just mainly want to sample the white asparagus in its full glory. The creamy and buttery poached egg goes really well with the juicy sweetness of the asparagus.

Lawry’s The Prime Rib– The Prime (Rib) choice for special occasions

Even though there are many steakhouses and restaurants serving steak in Singapore, we still like to go back to Lawry’s The Prime Rib every so often, for the simple reason that the steak is consistently good, and we like the steak there. Yes, even food bloggers crave consistency once in a while, especially when you have a baby in tow and need to know that the restaurant is spacious.

Specifically, I like the Prime Rib at Lawry’s. The steak is always tender, and it comes with a whole pool of special gravy that I like, and it’s one of the few places that provides creamy mustard as a condiment! I could eat dollops of that creamy mustard, it’s so good! It’s not at all cheap to dine at Lawry’s, but if you have the AMEX or CIMB credit card, you could get 50% discount if it is just 2 pax dining.  Click here to see all their promotions. They are also having a Christmas menu. Scroll down to see the entire menu.

Outback Steakhouse–New dishes introduced

[Media Invite]

Outback Steakhouse has introduced 4 new dishes to their menu so we were there a couple of weeks ago to check it out, with baby in tow. If there’s one good thing about visiting restaurants (as opposed to cafes), it’s that they are usually more spacious and can accommodate a stroller easily.

Baby is not supposed to eat fries!

I haven’t been to Outback Steakhouse for the longest time. In fact, I believe it could have been a decade ago that I last visited! Time has stood still at this place according to the Partner, as he’s been back on average once a year. Well, I am glad to see that some things haven’t changed, namely the hugely popular Typhoon Bloom onion rings. These are probably one of the most famous onion rings around because of the way they are presented. Crispy batter encasing piping hot and juicy substantial sized onion rings, it was hard to stop and leave space for the mains.

The Chop House (I12 Katong)

Finally blogging about the last tasting session that I went for prior to popping! I’d been to the 1st Chop House at Vivocity and I was looking forward to the same meat fest at the new Katong outlet to load up on my iron levels. The Chop House is renown for its generous meat dishes, which is not surprising since it is owned by the same people who own Wooloomooloo at Raffles City.

However the restaurant was keen to showcase its new or lesser known dishes, which turned out to be a good thing because they have some gems that are really worth highlighting to you guys out there. With a name like The Chop House, you wouldn’t be faulted for thinking that they specialise in meats, which they do, but they also have numerous “cafe” dishes as well.

The Chop House - Churros $6

For one, if you’ve been trying to find the best churros in Singapore, you might just want to pop by The Chop House. At $6 for 6 pieces of crispy on the outside and slightly under-baked on the inside to give a somewhat creamy texture, this must surely be one of the most value-for-money churros around. Also comes with a generous portion of chocolate or creme anglaise sauce.

The Chop House - Aussie Burger $24

This beautiful well done Aussie Burger $26++ would also be a recommendation of mine. Any burger with a sunny side up is a winner in my opinion! Plus the sweet onion jam and beet root added extra moisture and sweetness to the burger which I liked very much. Just don’t order it well done like I did, which I had to since I was pregnant. Medium-well should suffice for burgers.

Burnt Ends

Once in a while, I come across a gem of a restaurant that is so worthy of being mentioned and shared with the world that I’ve decided to bump it up the queue and write about it asap. Interestingly, if not for my foodie friends who organised this makan session, Burnt Ends would not have featured in my radar so I am really thankful for having made the acquaintance of Burnt Ends!

Burnt Ends is a modern Australian barbeque offering seating at the countertop table looking directly into the open kitchen. The reason why I said Burnt Ends would not have been my first port of call is because comfortable seating is extremely important to me. Food is of course important, but to be able to enjoy it in comfort, without having to fret about a confined space, and being able to face my dining companions, those are important factors for me too. Buttttt, having said that, we enjoyed the food here so much, I’m willing to say that I’ll forgo the comfort again for another chance at that lovely Pulled Pork cheese burger and the lamb!

As you can tell from the name, Burnt Ends also specialises in barbequing, smoking, slow roasting and cooking directly on coals. Check out those said coals in the picture above!

Burnt Ends - Smoked Quail Eggs $6

Started off our meal with these Smoked Quail Eggs $6. 1 egg $1, not a bad pricing for a restaurant. You won’t believe these eggs, they look like normal quail eggs, but the minute you bite into them, this wonderful smoky flavour envelopes your tongue, it’s almost as if they’d injected smoky soup into where the yolk would have been!

Burnt Ends - Lamb and Carrot $14
