Porterhouse steak house

Porterhouse is one of the most highly regarded steakhouses in Singapore, with an Argentinian focus to its steak. The chef hails from Argentina as well, and as you know, the Argentinians are well known for their steak. Located at Killiney road, the interior is pretty rustic with lots of old photos and wood.

We went straight for the main courses . G had a US tenderloin while I went for the Australian ribeye - on a budget. The steaks were very good- well seasoned definitely with enough salt and flavor to make it tasty even though the meat is not wagyu or even us black angus. My ribeye was pretty tasty with good marbling and the pieces of fat were just so delicious. Mmmm.

I had a bite of my friend's us tenderloin and it was pretty good - perfectly cooked to pink in the middle with a beefy if delicate texture that is delicate.

The sides were good too - perfectly crisp fries with a hint of truffle oil, and delicious sautéed mushrooms. Went very well with the steak.

We also had chimmichirri as a sauce which is a mixture of oreganos , herbs, peppers, olive oil, vinegar. Delicious and went extremely well with the meat, never overpowering it and in fact complimenting it very well.

Overall: 8.5/10
One of the best and most value for money places for steak considering the quality.
