Ruth's Chris Steak House @ Marina Mandarin

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse replaces Ristorante Bologna at Marina Mandarin.

The hungry ones headed for the classic menu – priced at $120 which is a steal when their steak mains start from $90. 

Lovely orchids in the restaurant. 

An interesting way to light the table up. 

Good enough for the ravenous.

Sizzlin’ Blue Crab Cakes ($35)
Two jumbo lump crab cakes with sizzling lemon butter

I place Hyatt Bar’s crabcakes tops for breaded and these as tops for panfried crab cakes. I adore the chunks of crabmeat that made this so delicious. Nothing fancy just crabmeat and butter. 

Roasted Tomato Soup with Crab and Julienne Basil

A very comforting vegetable soup with a dash of crab and basil – for once, a soup actually stood out for being vegetarian rather than carnivorous. 

Panzanella Salad with Mixed Baby Greens, tossed in a Vinaigrette Dressing

On the oily side, this salad was no doubt our only take on eating clean. 

Petit Filet (170 grams) and Shrimp

Filet Mignon grilled to such pinkness, this had to be the yummiest filet mignon eaten. 

The shrimp was a letdown however, too soft for liking. 

Ribeye ($110)
16 ounce, USDA Prime

Described as “deliciously juicy”, I can totally understand why. 

This cut packs a lot more succulence and juice than the petit fillet. Loved the searing done and it felt so good being carnivorous and a beef eater in a steakhouse. 

Grilled Asparagus

Mashed Potato

Sauteed Mushrooms

Creamed Spinach

The sides were good enough for us to wipe them all so clean.

Macaroni and Cheese

We topped up with a Macaroni and Cheese, one up from Kenny Roger’s with the crispy bits and melted cheese in shell macaroni. 

Cheesecake and Seasonal Berries with Sweet Cream

Signature from their dessert trolley, ours was part of the set meal and came served in a miniature version. Almost perfect with the fluffy texture and berries but the sweet cream was a tad too bland for fancy. 

Comforting tea to end. 

I may have just found a favourite steakhouse locally, trumping even Morton’s and CUT in my opinion. That leaves Skirt and Wooloomooloo to attempt before I rank them.
