Whether it’s a special occasion or a casual meal, there’s really nothing quite like a great steak. There’s joy and anticipation when one slices into a perfectly grilled, juicy cut of beef, followed by the visual pleasure that comes with observing the perfect doneness within.
Where you go to satisfy your steak cravings – whether a ribeye or striploin – is as important as the meat. In Singapore, Tomahawk Contemporary Steakhouse is one of the best places to enjoy quality cuts and more. Centrally located with branches at Raffles Place and Novena, Tomahawk prides itself with a wide selection of premium Australian wagyu beef.
At Tomahawk, wagyu steak, which is renowned the world over and highly sought-after for its tender, buttery texture, is the star of the show. Here, the steaks undergo meticulous preparation paired with intricate cooking techniques to bring out the best each cut has to offer.
What’s more, Tomahawk serves wet-cured steaks, where meat is brined in a marinade with salt and other aromatic ingredients. Through this process, what you get are juicy steaks with a greater, more pronounced flavor and better texture.
In addition to simply serving the steaks, Tomahawk takes it to the next level. Here, expect tableside carving and torching to enhance the experience, which adds excitement to the meal. Carving the steaks tableside helps preserve juices within the steak, while locking in flavour to the very last moment for optimum satisfaction. Meanwhile, torching the steaks tableside chars, toasts, and caramelizes the fats, which adds complexity and texture.
To avoid excessive chewing on gristly bits, Tomahawk also ensures that the cap is removed and sinew is torched. For those who don’t eat steak as often and would like to know the best way to enjoy it, the restaurant’s knowledgeable service staff will be on hand to explain the various parts of the steak, as well as make recommendations on which parts to eat first. Not only do you get to enjoy a delicious meal, you also enhance your knowledge for more informed decisions on your next visit.
Tomahawk also prides itself with an extensive menu that goes beyond steaks (including pork chops, lamb shank, seafood dishes, and an assortment of sides), ensuring there is something for everyone. While essentially a Western restaurant, Tomahawk serves dishes that feature Asian ingredients, which include Lamb Empanada with Green Curry, Squid Ink Lobster Risotto with Japanese Scallops, Salmon Carbonara with Ikura, and Tiger Prawns with kombu, to name a few.
Finally, Tomahawk’s Novena branch extends a warm welcome to dog owners and their fur kids, making it the only dog-friendly steakhouse in Singapore. As you enjoy one of Tomahawk’s premium wet-cured steaks, choose between delicious cuts of beef or salmon with vegetables for your dog – truly an enjoyable meal for all.
