Bistecca alla Singapura from District 10 at Suntec

I'm kidding about the title, the Florentians would not have legitimized this as a bistecca alla Fiorentina anyways. The folks from District 10 have set up a new shop down at Suntec (#01-514/515 Suntec City Mall, 3 Temasek Boulevard) with a menu that focuses on beef. So that's their 45 days dry aged USDA Prime Black Angus done alla Fiorentina over open flamed grill with Japanese charcoal. No Chianina cattle involved. It's a mixed beast of a steak, but it's probably as close as what we can get over here.

So the $220 question here would be how was the steak? I liked it. This was a flavourful t-bone grilled in a nice medium rare with the prerequisite burnt ends with little but salt to allow the meat to shine. I'll admit it's rather pricey, let's also consider that it's dry aged USDA versus the Australian beef that most of the other places that offers bistecca this style.
