Morton’s The Steakhouse
Long before the current generation of steakhouses like Cut and Wolfgang Steakhouse burst onto the scene, Morton’s The Steakhouse was one of the early pioneers to open in Singapore more than 20 years ago. Despite the keen competition from the new kids on the block, Morton’s is still the grand daddy of steakhouses still operating in their original location at Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
We decided to drop by on a Monday evening for dinner to utilize some of our travel budget since international borders are currently closed and travel is not allowed. The place was packed full house for a Monday night.
Although Morton’s is famous for its steaks, there is a little known fact that it also serves non beef dishes on their menu. We decided to try some of these as we were told by our assigned wait staff that there were some new items recently added to the menu.
We ordered the Bacon Steaks $38 and Tuna Tacos $39.50 for starters.
The Tuna Tacos was very fresh and zesty and the crispy tacos paired really well with our house white wine.
The Bacon Steaks was well marinated and not too salty or fatty.
Another new item on the menu which we tried was the Seared Sea Scallops with Lobster and Caviar Butter $115. The Scallops were crispy on the outside and fresh and succulent on the inside. The lobster was also fresh and juicy.
We had the Filet Mignon Oscar style with Lobster on top. We have dined at Morton’s many times over the years and the consistency of its steaks stays true to course day in, day out.
We had 2 sides to pair with the mains. Lobster Macaroni and Cheese $58 and Truffled Mashed Cauliflower $28. They were really yummy and delicious, and good value for money.
To round off the evening, we had to have the legendary Morton’s Signature Hot Chocolate Lava Cake $38. It was oozing with hot chocolate lava upon first bite. It was not too sweet and it offered a perfect sweet ending to our evening.
