Lago @ Las Vegas

Bellagio fountain was one of the icons of Las Vegas. Dining next to the fountain was always a highlight of the visit to Las Vegas. And fortunately, the restaurants around the fountain were all very good.

Meat & Wine Co @ Circular Quay

The Meat & Wine Co is intimate and sophisticated inside the heritage-listed hotel, where contemporary interior design paired with subtle African influences make the restaurant enticingly unique. Rustic wooden walls, luxurious leather seating, and stone features make this the ideal setting for business meetings and romantic dinners alike.

Chop Chop @ Shanghai (Closed)

Paul Pairet’s restaurant for UNÏCO Shanghai, The Chop Chop Club, is a carvery that twists the format of a restaurant to make it feasible that everyone, even us peasants not accustomed to ordering expensive large-format meats like turbot and côte de boeuf, can have a slice.

Ruth’s Chris @ Park City, Utah

Park City is famous for two things – great ski resorts and Sundance. So when you visit in October, you get neither of both. Luckily, you still get a beautiful town without the crowd and the excellent service at Ruth’s Chris.

Gordon Ramsay Steak @ Las Vegas

The City of Light meets the city of sin at Paris Las Vegas. It is as cheesy as it gets. As long as you have the cash, you can have anything you want. Everything here is faux. Faux Paris if you want. The centrally-located Parisian-themed hotel boasts a replica Eiffel Tower, a mock Arc de Triomphe…

Morton’s @ Shanghai

With the largest expatriate community in China, Shanghai’s selection of places to enjoy a great steak is growing by the month. New restaurants are importing world-class beef cuts. Some of the best steaks you’ll find in Shanghai look and taste no different than one you’ll find in, say, Dallas, Texas. But the same piece of…

Terrior Parisien @ Shanghai

For Alléno, 2017 is a good year (and busy), possibly only second to 2007, when he’s awarded 3 star for the first time. Le 1947 became the only 3 star entry in France this year, and his 3 star Alléno Paris au Pavillon Ledoyen made into the World’s Best 50 List for the first time ever, ranked…

Vlado’s @ Melbourne

Another good eat in Melbourne. Very down to earth and relatively reasonably priced.

Wooloomooloo @ Swissotel

National Day 2013, we decided to go near where the action was to watch the fireworks. All the restaurants around the bay area were full. Wooloomooloo at Swissotel was blocked by Suntec and Esplanade, but you still get an unobstructed view of the fireworks. Wooloomooloo is an Australian steakhouse from Hong Kong – that’s right,…

Prime Society @ Dempsey

Need meat, go find meat. Prime Society was supposedly one of the premium steakhouse in Singapore. Their choices of cuts were the longest according to a friend, and the few times I was there, I was not disappointed. This time, I try to see if the place would fare with non-beef eaters in tow.
