The Place Located at the new Oasia Resort Sentosa, I checked out Bedrock Origin, the second restaurant by the acclaimed steakhouse Bedrock Bar & Grill in Somerset. The interior of Bedrock Origin is contemporary chic, with a mix of the main dining hall, private dining rooms and an al fresco dining area.
The Food The main difference of Bedrock Origin and Bedrock in terms of its menu is that the menu here features more diverse ingredients such as a new and exclusive selection of seafood, dry-aged meats including fish, as well as roasted harvests, in addition to the brand’s signature steaks. In support of Oasia Resort Sentosa’s wellness lifestyle, Bedrock Origin also offers plant-based meat alternatives, as well as nutritious and keto-friendly options.
I started with the Kingfish Sashimi (S$32) with brown rice puff, chopped wasabi and drizzled with a ceviche soy dressing. A refreshing starter to have, you can expect fresh sashimi slices and I love ceviche-style sashimi.
The next dish I had was the Grilled Pear Salad (S$22) – a mix of Arugula, Packham pear, medjool dates, walnuts and blue cheese dressing. I am not a big fan of blue cheese and thankfully this is not too pungent for me.
Dry aged fish seems to be the new food trend, and I had the Aged Kühlbarra Barramundi Tail (S$88), which is good for two to three persons. You get flavours like chilli, herbs and lemon in this dish where the locally farmed Kühlbarra barramundi is aged for 7 days. The main purpose of aging the dish is to concentrate the flavours create a better, denser mouthfeel. Overall, the fish is expectedly flavourful and definitely one of my favourites that night.
Comparatively, the other fish dish I had was the Turbot On The Bone (S$68). The 3-days in-house dry-aged Turbot is topped with Kombu compound butter and served tomato salsa. Exclusively imported from France, the 3-day dry-aged Turbot is cooked and served on the bone, and the flavour is quite rich from the butter. If you can only have one fish, go for the Barramundi.
A plant-based dish I tried was the Plant-Based Beef Wellington (S$38), served with mixed green salad, roasted vegetable demi-glace and mushroom duxelle. The plant-based meat loaf is marinated with marmite and Worcestershire sauce, and I am surprised I enjoyed it.
And you can’t visit Bedrock Origin without trying their steaks. The Dry-Aged Australian Barley-Fed Bone in Striploin (400g/S$110) is simply seasoned with salt and pepper, then grilled over applewood fire. The beef is succulent and flavourful, and served with Bedrock’s specialty red wine sauce, Bedrock chilli oil, classic Béarnaise, wholegrain whisky mustard, and steak butter.
There are also good side dishes to have along with the meats, and I strongly recommend the signature Bedrock Mac ‘N’ Cheese (S$22), one of the best versions around. I like the crispy cheese crust, and the creamy cheese is from gorgonzola cheese blended with cooking cream with a tinge of their housemade truffle compound butter.
Other sides on the menu include the likes of Yukon Gold Potatoes (S$16) with in-house applewood smoked sour cream, porcini mushrooms and chives; and the Spicy Brussels Sprouts (S$16) tossed in quinoa and house-made chilli oil and lemon zest.
For dessert, I had the Palm Torte (S$22) which is essentially Gula melaka chiffon cake with mascarpone cream cheese, Bailey’s Irish Cream & Brandy infused walnut-raisin tapenade, housemade carrot- orange marmalade, topped raspberries and blueberries.

Rants Not the most accessible restaurant to get to without a car.
Will I Return Again? I like the dining ambience at Bedrock Origin and it is a destination dining given the Sentosa location. The food doesn’t disappoint, and I am keen to return for its lunch set menu next time.
This was an invited tasting, though all opinions expressed are our own.
