Morton’s The Steakhouse has been around for almost 3 decades and opened restaurants all over the globe, but the vision remains the same. Quality. Consistency. Genuine Hospitality. And that was what I experienced with my party of 11. Reservation was made and we were pleasantly surprised when a manager brought us to a private room. To be able to dine with privacy and away from the bustling dining area, my first impression has been made. Evidently, this restaurant does not lack patrons at all. There was a moment of silence when we flipped through the menu. The steaks are pretty pricey, ranging from 100-200 SGD. Lobster Bisque: We are pretty much fans of the Lobster Bisque at Jack’s Place, so we were not used to the version here. It lacks the lobster essence and instead, carries a alcoholic after-taste. In my personal opinion, I’m definitely staying away from this the next time I’m here. Broiled Scallop: Scallop is a must-have-appetiser for me and Morton’s have done it adequately well. The concentrated flavour of the bacon goes exceptionally well with the fresh mild flavour of the shellfish. Although the scallop is cooked longer than I’d preferred, it is still succulent and mouth-watering.
Centre-Cut Prime Ribeye: One of the fattiest cut, the steak is also aged for 23-28 days. In other words, the steak will possess a greater concentration of beef flavour, and much more tender as well, due to the breaking down of the connective tissues by the beef’s natural enzymes. As the photo simply shows, the beef is not served in any accompanying sauce. Instead, straight from the searing grill and into the plate. This only means that the steak is indeed delicious on its own. I cannot agree more on this. A tip for anyone ordering a steak at Morton’s; the portion is humongous for the appetite of an Asian. A 8oz Filet Mignon alone will have you struggling at the end, so do request to share your steak. Sauteed Spinach & Button Mushroom: This has got to be my favourite sides of all. Both mushroom and spinach are cooked to perfection, well-seasoned and extremely addictive. If only I could have a second tummy for another bowl of this. Chocolate Souffle for Two: Do not be alarmed when the dessert arrives on your table. This soufflé is indeed for two, or more. Especially after soup, appetisers and the steak, you would definitely need a group. The first soufflé that I’ve tasted. Airy, light, sweet, but not too over-whelming. Morton’s Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake: Warm, velvety-smooth melted chocolate encased within moist chocolate cake. Mildly sweet with a tinge of dark chocolate bitterness. This dessert is indeed legendary.
