Best steak at a zi char place!

New Ubin Seafood is quite a deceiving name. It isn’t located at Ubin and the seafood wasn’t the highlight of our meal. You can expect the usual zi char dishes but the whole point of finding your way inside Sin Ming Industrial Park is this plate of Certified Chilled U.S Angus Beef Rib-Eye Steak.This plate of broiled steak was unforgettable. Accompanied with caramelised onions and potato wedges, it could have easily passed off as a dish in a fancy restaurant. Even Larry (trust this American to know his beef) gave it the thumbs up. I don’t think you even need to use any of the three sauces – pineapple sauce, mustard and ketchup – that were provided.

Now, the most authentic and incredible part of this plate of steak is that it duplicated the taste of the beef in another plate of beef fried rice. Such a brilliant idea to cook it in the remnants of the beef fats!

We ordered a few more dishes but they were just alright. Not sure about the crabs though! Either way, I would just order the $50 plate of steak that comes with fried rice and share it between 2 or 3! >:)

The quest for the best Irish Stew

Been having random cravings for beef stew ever since I had it at Molly Malone’s Irish Bar about a month back. Both the Irish Stew (left) and Beef & Guinness Pie (right) were great, and I want to try more! I shall not digress..

Molly Malone’s is generous with their ingredients and the stew is packed with flavour without being overly salty or thick. Dipping the toast in the stew and eating it with the soft stewed beef and carrots is just heavenly. The Beef & Guinness Pie is pretty much the same thing except that it comes with a puff pastry. I wish they serve it as a real pie instead!

I seldom drink beer so I can’t comment much on that. However, I would recommend the sinful Crispy Fried Pork with sea salt & mustard ($13) as a bar food. The rest of the mains were pretty decent too. Molly’s Fish & Chips was made from fresh Haddock that’s lightly battered; it was definitely one of the better fish & chips I have tried in Singapore. The Honey Glazed Baby Pork Ribs and Bangers & Mash were alright. It was a pity that the meat from the pork ribs did not fall off the bone easily, and we felt that there was something missing from the mash potato for the Bangers & Mash.
