Angus Steak House has been operating in Takashimaya since it started operation more than 10 years ago. It has underwent a renovation a few years back, and now has a white and clean decor.
The window seats are the best for admiring the beautiful Christmas lights along Orchard Road. Here, the restaurant serves free iced water to all diners.
Given the quality and price of food, it's strange why Angus Steak House is usually half filled when neighbouring Tonkichi and Crystal Jade have long queues outside.
Diners who order any main course can opt for a value-for-money Set Lunch Top Up (S$6), which consists of a soup, salad and dessert. The set lunch is available on weekends as well. We were first served the bread, which was nicely warmed and had a nice fluffy interior.
The soup for the set lunch was mushroom soup. Pity it was served lukewarm.
We saw the Beef Soup (S$9.50) on the menu. But when it was served to us, we had a surprise - The beef soup was actually a "Korean" style beef soup. The soup stock reminded me of those Korean spicy soup. But they were rather generous with the tender beef chunks. Think there were 4 large chunks in the soup.
The Escargot (S$14) was pretty good, but the garlic overpowered the flesh.
The salad from the set lunch came in quite a big portion, enough for 2 to share.
For our mains, we ordered the Risotto Seabass with Lemon Sauce (S$22). The risotto had a cheesy creamy texture as it was baked with lot's of cheese. Seabass was tender and fresh.
Since this is a steak house, how could we leave here without a taste of their steak? Therefore, we had a main of Tenderloin Steak 250g (S$49.50). At 250g, it was of substantial size. The beef was done medium, and it came as it should be. Slightly cooked on the outside and a bit raw in the inside. Beef was rather tender, and had most of the flavours preserved within the meat. But the slice of lime and butter did not go well with the beef.
Even though this chococlate cake was part of the S$6 set lunch top up, but the quality was very good. A good ending to a value for money set lunch in Orchard Road.
