had a good wagyu steak dinner with wife at the prime society on 28.4.2015. ^^
it was raining. didn’t feel like cooking, didn’t want to go far so the prime society at dempsey seemed a good choice, only a few steps in the rain with a large golf umbrella. 🙂
place was not crowded, less than 50% full at 6.30pm and afterwards.
we had a roll & butter.
service was very good. competent, friendly & polite.
my wife was here previously & had the wagyu & oysters. for me, first time. we ordered about the same things.
oysters were S$5eaach, so with palate 50% for 2pax, it was S$2.50/oyster, quite doable.
they were good too, juicy, plump, tasty, no metallic taste. i can have this again!
we ordered our wagyu steaks – 2 ribeye both medium as recommended by server.
i asked to take photos of the wagyu. they decided they did not want me taking the chef preparation area, either that or it was some communication thing, so they brought the 3 different cuts to the table. it was fine by me, as i already said to the lady that it was ok if photo was inconvenient for them.
this lady said the same thing that sirloin had the fat on the outside & ribeye had more marbling at fat at the middle so more flavourful. she added that the topside was also an excellent cut. she said topside had to be cooked rare or medium rare & would be tough if medium. i had the impression that topside was usually not as good as sirloin or striploin & ribeye was best among the 3. anyway, i am quite keen to go back & try the topside!^^
the 200g cut was a good size. it was very well chargrilled & medium was quite fine for me though i probably would not have minded medium rare too.
for me, it was better definitely than angus, not better than my own wagyu ribeye from mmmm, and of course one can never make comparison with the much superior –
the 3 sauces were very good for the wagyu steak. like the red wine sauce best with a dab of béarnaise. did not take much of pepper sauce.
excluding wine, it was S$98 for 2pax after 50% palate discounts. not as good deal as arossa previously, but arossa could not survive at tat price & location, no point right?
it was really enjoyable dinner. & i plan to be back to try the wagyu topside.
