Bedrock Bar & Grill

The specialty at Bedrock, a steakhouse run by the guys behind Oriole, is their Tomahawk steak, a massive Flintstonian-sized 400-day grain fed F1 wagyu long-bone ribeye, with a marbling score of 5. With each cut averaging 1.5 kg, there's no way A and I could have had it on our own.

Cue W and M, who indulged us by joining us for dinner and sharing it with us. At first we were a bit stunned when we found out the price of the Tomahawk - an eye-popping $345, but after doing the math, we realised that at about $85 per person, it would've cost the same if we'd each ordered our own steak.

The mammoth steak arrived already pre-carved and sliced, on a platter with 5 different sauces. The meat was very well salted, and grilled to a perfect medium rare. It didn't even need the sauces, though the wholegrain mustard added a nice tart kick.

We started with a baked camembert that was outstanding. The cheese was creamy and oozy, and was topped with black pepper and capers to cut through the richness of the cheese.

For dessert, we shared the waffle ice cream sandwich, with honey and fig ice cream, though A had most of it. This was really good - the waffle was crisp and light, and I liked the flavour of the ice cream. I still prefer L'Entrecote's saltcaramel waffle though.

Bedrock's steak prices are pretty high, with most steaks hovering around the $70 to $90 mark. With prices rivalling those at Cut or Morton's, I'm not sure that Bedrock can really justify them. Sure, the Tomahawk was good but it wasn't lifechanging. I actually found the camembert and the dessert more memorable. And the complimentary pita bread with roasted garlic.

Very good food. Very high prices. I’m not sure it’s worth it so I’d only recommend it if you have a very large food budget.
