Food Review: Wooloomooloo Steakhouse at Swissotel the Stamford | 5-course Sunday Brunch at S$48++, steak included

The Place We all love our steaks. Finally, we found time to visit Wooloomooloo Steakhouse located at Swissotel the Stamford, despite the fact that it has been around for a few years. The restaurant is fairly huge, with a bar area for pre-meal drinks at its entrance, as well as a huge facility where the meats are aged. If you fancy, you can request for the window facing table where you get a view of the city, albeit it’s only at level three.

The Food We didn’t have a pure steak affair, as we checked out the five-course Sunday Brunch menu instead. Priced at S$48++, our first few thoughts were skeptical. We were expecting the serving to be small and didn’t come with high expectations. We were surprised.

The Sunday Brunch menu is fixed and rotates bi-weekly, so this is not the time slot for you if you prefer a la carte order. We started well with the Poached Egg with avocado and toast, a nice runny rendition. Avocado on toast happens to be one of my current favourite.

The next dish is something cold, not in a bad way. We found comfort in the Angel Hair Truffle Pasta with konbu and lobster. Initially, I thought the truffle would be a distracting element but it actually uplifted the flavour suitably.

No set meal is complete without a good bowl of soup. The Roasted Pumpkin Soup is one of those I can keep drinking on. Thick and creamy, the texture and flavour of the soup were enhanced by the coconut milk and toasted nuts elements.

For mains, there were three options but it was a no brainer for us to go right for the Grass Fed Australian Sirloin. We didn’t expect the serving to be so sizeable, further complimented by potato gratin, forest mushrooms and garlic purée. Our medium-rare steak was succulent, and there wasn’t any reason to fault it given its value.

For desserts, we ended with the Warm Chocolate Brownie with vanilla gelato.

Rants The service was mixed for us. While we had a manager checking on our table, we thought that it is basic service in a restaurant like Wooloomooloo to at least briefly explain the dish being served on our table. 

Will I Return Again? For S$48++, this is one of the most value for money five-course meal which we can think of right now. The quality of each course we had was consistently good, which also made us wonder if we will want to return for its highly priced a la carte dinner menu.
