Aston's prime ribeye extra cut

Having tried the grade 5/6 wagyu at Aston previously, I thought it would be interesting to check out their regular steak. I've never actually had anything else before and the word was that steaks at Aston's is pretty decent at affordable prices. The extra cut ribeye is a larger cut of their regular ribeye weighing 300g. A decent weight for a steak. I would think that anything smaller is a little tiny. For $15.90, I'll have to agree that it is probably the cheapest around. That being said, I found it quite unsatisfying. There were no complains about how the meat was done. Anyplace that manages successful medium rare steaks properly takes their cooking serious enough. The taste of the beef was just too flat. Which reminded me of the ieat burger with its tasteless dry patty.

Have you done a review of the Astons at serangoon gardens... I wasnted to try it tonight. But judging from the crowd and the hassled cooks i dont think any food would have turned out nice.. i'll just drop in on a slow weekday..

I haven't been there. I've heard some comments that it wasn't comparable to this one at Katong. The next time, I'll probably be checking Aston Prime at Joo Chiat.
