About Wooloomooloo Steakhouse Singapore
Wooloomooloo Steakhouse is a name that often comes up when searching for the best steak in Singapore. It is conveniently located on the third floor of Swissôtel, above Raffles City MRT and boasts a muted, elegant set up that is not too noisy and has a ton of lovely natural lighting from floor-to-ceiling windows.
The restaurant proudly displays a range of wine and other awards. I don’t profess to know much about this, but there is indeed an extensive wine selection lining the walls of the restaurant and a ton of options to choose from on the menu.
Wooloomooloo Steakhouse Weekend Brunch Promotion
Given steak experiences in general can cost an arm and a leg, we scheduled a visit during the weekend to try Wooloomooloo’s more wallet-friendly 4-course Weekend Brunch. For just $48++, you can get a starter, soup, main course and dessert. We couldn’t resist adding on $20++ to upgrade our steak to the Nebraskan USDA 250-day grain fed prime rib-eye. This definitely value-for-money as the prime rib-eye steak alone can cost up to $88++ in the dinner menu!
Starters: Creamy Fois Gras & Roasted Onion Bread
Every table gets complimentary loaves of savoury roasted onion (foccacia?) bread paired with a generous glob of butter. This is pretty good as it is light and fluffy inside and topped with onions that have become sweet and crisp from baking.
We also got the decadent Pan Seared Foie Gras ($31) that was served with a slice of brioche toast, sweet apple compote and 4 different seasonings. The foie gras had a lovely crust and paired super well with a bit of salt and apple compote to balance it out. This is best shared though or it might get too heavy for one person.
The Half-Dozen Oysters ($42) were alright and definitely fresh. However, they felt a bit pricey for the price point and size. For $7 apiece, you can probably get better quality elsewhere (see here for a great $2 oyster happy hour).
Overall though, the appetisers were all pretty good and we had to be mindful to save space for the other food!
First Course: Savoury Seafood Starters
When we visited, the starter choices both had a seafood theme. The first was Baby Squid with Spiced Squid Ink Sauce and Green Sambal. The squid was tender and packed with unami flavour from the squid ink. The sambal added a nice kick as well without overpowering the dish.
The other option was a Red Snapper Ceviche mixed with pomegranate and topped with an ebi (prawn) rice cracker. I don’t often each snapper sashimi but was pleasantly surprised by the fresh, clean and creamy taste. Both starters were creative, unique and enjoyable.
Second Course: Velvety Wild Mushroom Soup with Truffle Oil
For soup, we only got one choice which was the Wild Mushroom Soup with a dash of truffle oil and parmesan. Wooloomooloo Steakhouse does a pretty killer version of this soup with just the right amount of cream, mushroom bits, seasoning and cheese/crouton add ons. We all polished this off super quickly.
Third Course: Nebraskan USDA Prime Rib Eye
For main courses, there is typically an option to top up $20 for the Prime Rib Eye Steak. I would fully, fully recommend that you do this. The steak costs way more during dinner which makes the mere $20 more than worth it.
I can honestly say that this might be the best steak I have ever had in Singapore. Each piece just melts in your mouth and goes perfectly with a dash of mustard and sauce. The meat is also seared to give a firm and savoury crust while sealing all the juices inside. Really loved this. Please upgrade.
Fourth Course: Beautifully Presented Desserts
Finally, Wooloomooloo Steakhouse ends things off on a high note with some gorgeous fruity desserts. The first up was Yuzu Citrus Poached Pears with ice cream that is a great balance of sweet and tangy to clear the heaviness of the meal.
The other option was a Warm Apple Tart topped with fluffy meringue and vanilla ice cream. The tart itself is made from flaky puff pastry which was a nice touch. The apple filling was also not too sweet and contrasted well with the meringue and ice cream.
Overall, Wooloomooloo Steakhouse certainly delivers on the full package as every course was fantastic. I really appreciate that they do not compromise on quality at all even though this special Weekend Brunch Menu is promotional. I would most definitely want to come back again.
