Skirt @ W Singapore
We are back at W Singapore again. This time, to try out their grill restaurant.
The now famous W Singapore pool looks different at night. The pool is opened 24 hours, but I guess not many people like to have a late night dip.
All who enters W Hotel will pass through this famous logo of the hotel. Colour changes every few seconds.
It's a bit strange why would a grill restaurant calls itself "Skirt", but the name "Skirt" actually refers to skirt steak
Aging chamber for the beef. Looks a bit scary.
Started our dinner with the complimentary Sourdough roll. Came with Pesto sauce.
Orderd a bottle of St. Pellegrino (S$10 for 1L)
The 1st appetizer arrived: Seared King Scallops (S$28) with Dashi, apple and bacon powder
Squash Cappuccino (S$12). When the maple butter melts in the hot soup, it's rich and fragrant. Nice
King Prawns (S$22), split and peppered.
The center masterpiece of Skirt is its open kitchen, where diners can see the chefs in action.
It's W Hotel. Everything is very elaborately decorated
Small bottle of bourbon apple juice to drink as palate cleanser before the steak. And BBQ sauce for the steak.
Flights of Red (S$45 by glass): (left to right) Shiraz, Malbec and Merlot
Cape Grim Australian Natural Grass Fed Angus Tenderloin 250g (S$44)
"Tajima" Australian Crossbred Wagyu Rib Eye MS6 250g medium (S$62)
My medium steak. I think we must commend that for this price, the steak is juicy and of good quality.
Salt selection for the steak : (from left) Skirt made Beef Salt, Rosemary Salt, Roasted Garlic Salt, Smoked Salt, Hawaiian Red Salt.
More condiments: Four peppercorn sauce, Blood orange and tarragon Béarnaise, Red wine and marrow sauce, Horseradish cream
Side salad : Smoked Kipfler Potato Salad (S$8) with Urbani Black Truffle
We were impressed by the good service, pocket friendly price, good food and of course the "coolness" of the entire place. Will definitely be back again.
