Long Bar Steakhouse has a heavyweight on its menus this October, limited quantities and only hardcore carnivores need apply. No stranger to Long Bar Steakhouse, it still very much remains one of Raffles Hotel's best kept secrets, next to the Bar and Billiard Room and Long Bar.

Airflown from Australia, this 1.7 kg on-the-bone rib eye steak is a stunner both in pictures and upclose and personal. That ruby red meat and marbling sent me drooling at the mere thought.

Now before this, my steak education has been the usual tenderloins, rib eyes, wagyus and even omis. The Tomahawk Steak is christianed so because of its semblance to a tomahawk, - a single handed axe. The bone has been left to enhance the taste of this most flavorful cut and this makes for a dramatic yet elegant presentation.

Long Bar Steakhouse’s Sampler ($48)
Dungeness crab, seared scallop and scottish smoked salmon

I love samplers because everything is bite sized and I get a taste of other appetizers too. Vote for yummiest goes to the dungeness crab cake, sweet and has the extra crunch.

Grilled to perfect with varying degrees of doneness throughout the hefty chunk, I was pleased as punch to get hold of my plate of medium rare steak.

 In an almost dramatic fashion, it was a whole party of flavours going on in my mouth - tender and almost melt in my mouth, there was no fancy seasoning just a sprinkle of salt and pepper to enhance the taste.

Oh, the fats are divine, so says the fat-loving bunch who gallantly walloped it all.

Joy to the world I say, when steak is precisely cooked and I have a glass of red in hand. This Spanish Red packed floral and fruity notes.

Playing second fiddle are the three sides served alongside,
