Bedrock Bar & Grill

Located at Pan Pacific Suites, located just beside 313 Somerset. It serves up some really good steaks, bustling warm ambience and excellent sides. My dad wanted to treat me to something good for my birthday and I suggested this place since we both love steaks.


Served with red wine-shallot mignonette and lemon. I didn't really eat this as I wasn't into oysters. But my parents and my wife said it was fresh and refreshing. A pity it somehow came to my mind that my dad experience a mild diarrhoea when he got home. It might have been something else he ate, but this remains on our list of suspects. But just to clarify, my mum and wife didn't experience anything bad though.

<French Onion Soup>

Hoho! This French onion soup is certainly one for the carnivores! Not only is it cooked with the usual ingredients such as onion, beef broth and gruyere gratin. It has bacon in it too! Nothing could go wrong. It added an additional depth to the already hearty soup. But it still ranks a very close second to my favourite at Bistro Du Vin. 

<Roasted Bone Marrow>

Roasted with chopped parsley salad and served toast. This was my FIRST taste of bone marrow. I was constantly contemplating but yet excited when it finally arrived on our table. It was really fatty and gelatin-ish. But it tasted good and balance if you smear it on the toast. It was so good that I asked for more toast to go with it and they Obliged! ^^ 

<Wild Halibut>

A beauty on a plate. The delicate fish was served up along side confit of potato, fresh cherry tomato and lemon verbena vinaigrette dressing. It tasted almost like cod but without the fattiness. The fish was perfectly cooked that it flakes off smoothly.

<Steamed Asparagus>

Well, we just had to have something to cut through all this evil goodness that we are downing right? Hee ^^ But boy, it was fresh and not overcooked. Crunchy!

 <Truffle Mash Potato>

Excellent excellent excellent! Despite it looking oily. You can tell and taste that it was made from fresh potatoes and not some packet powder crap. It was velvety but yet retained some small bites in it for texture. And the truffle's aroma really came through. *Thumbs up!*

 <Duck Fat Potatoes>

How could one skip this if this is your first time? They are really crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. It had a very nice aroma from cooking in duck fat too. But given the choice if I went back again, I might just choose the mash over this.

 <Tomahawk Steak>

The highlight of the day! The Tomahawk steak! Fed with 400 days grain, this wagyu packed a punch. With it you had a full range of done-ness to sample, ranging from rare to medium well. Ordering this steak also entitles you to receive the whole range of sauces that the restaurant offers, which would have otherwise cost you $4 each. There are red wine sauce, bedrock chili oil, classic bearnaise, wholegrain whiskey mustard, chimichurri sauce. I personally prefer the mustard. Steak wise, it was really good but pricey as one would suspect. Oh! If you are adventurous enough, take the entire bone and get the tough looking bits off it. It is really crispy and tastes like beef jerky! 

Ambience - Good
Food - Great
Cost - $100+ per pax
Overall - Must try!
