The Prime food experience

It was Hawk’s birthday and being meat eaters, we wanted to carve our teeth into Le LeMeridien’s Prime. Said to be THE steak restaurant by many, so we decided to celebrate it there. Though we went in with lowered expectations as hearsay was the steaks weren’t as what it used to be. *shrug – first timer here*

Rustic luxurious setting

From a raised platform where you enter, you can overlook the restaurant and within a head’s turn you can see into the kitchen. It felt really posh. 🙂

Grand, no?

Though the seats are really spacious, I’d say they were probably fitted for larger-sized Western bodies. But as Asians, our size definitely gives us the advantage to maneuver better in them. 😛

Onward to the food

For starters, me and Ariel shared had their signature lobster bisque. The external view reminded me of Dome’s pie except this was much much much better. Because the crust was very thin. And as you dig into it, you’ll find the hidden soup. It was truly a great dish though it became a tad salty for me as I finished it.

Signature Wagyu

Hawk treated himself with their Wagyu. It was a truly majestic piece of meat. But to be honest, I found the texture incomparable to my superior Kobe. Muahahahhaha! 😛

Kobe oyster blade steak

Okay. It was my first time having Kobe. But I loved every single piece of milky smooth cut of my steak which slid in my mouth. Mmmmmm…oh, I’m so spoiled now! LOL!

Steak burger

Ariel had their steak burger and it was really a platter for a horse. Besides the burger, you’ve got thick-sized fries with a small serving of salad.

Prime was a great experience. At least we know now what the food tastes, though we may not come here as often due to the price of parking plus food. Also, I’d be lying if we weren’t comparing Prime with our favourite steak hangouts; Las Vacas.

It was a mixed result between friends and it may not stand as a fair comparison since Las Vacas grills their meat with only salt and pepper – no marination. Thus, I’ll leave my final say out until I get a serving of Kobe at Las Vacas.

Who’s with me? 😀
