My 4th Restaurant Week Meal this week! Off to lunch at Wooloomooloo Steakhouse at Swissôtel The Stamford!
This is the 2nd time I am at Wooloomooloo Steakhouse and PB made a right choice to book this as the steak here are REALLY GOOD!
Passage way lined with wines that leads you into the restaurant
The Restaurant Week (2015) Menu – 3 courses for $40++ per pax with the option of 2 appetisers, 3 mains (prawns pasta, chicken or beef) and 2 desserts.
Since there were 2 of us, we had one of each from the appetisers and desserts and as for the main, what do you order but the steak in a steakhouse?!

There is no way you can cut yourself with it! But it does do a good job with the steak! 😛
My hot water and PB’s cold water. Love the tulip shape glass for the cold water.
PB’s House bread.
They have specially made this size of bread for the restaurant week diners.
My House bread – Sweet Onion Bread
My bread and the view it sees. 🙂
Lovely view of the Central Business District from the restaurant which I hadn’t notice the last round as it was way too dark then!
The butter topped with salt for the bread.
It was just a small portion and I finished it all!
Appetiser – Cream of Tomato & Basil
It was served almost immediately after the house bread came!
The goat cheese crostini was dunk in the slow braised tomatoes, onions, leeks, soaking up all the lovely flavours of the tomatoes. PB found it a little too tomato-y but it works for me.
Appetisers – Smoked Tasmanian Salmon served with ruby red grapefruit, radish, fennel, watercress and avocado cream
I am not a smoked salmon person but this is really good. Love the smokiness and firmness of the salmon and how refreshing the entire dish was.
My Main course of the Grass fed Australian Filet Mignon served with duck fat roasted potatoes, baby eschallots, asparagus and peppercorn sauce.

The moment I cut through the beef, I knew that they had mixed up the doneness of the beef.
I had asked for medium well but this looks more like medium to medium rare the more I cut into the chunk. I have no complaints as it was not bloody and I am able to accept this doneness of the beef as it is very moist and tasty. Looks like PB is gonna get a very tough piece of “upgraded beef” LOL
PB’s USDA Prime RibEye at an additional $10++

Still pink but a little more brown. Lucky, it was not as tough as we had imagine but it would have tasted better less cooked 😛
The extra sauce that I asked for as it goes very well with the beef but this was way more peppery than the ones that were served with the beef.
Lemon Curd Citrus Tart with strawberries and blueberries
Very smooth curd that goes together with the refreshing,thin and slightly crisp tart.Eat it together to balance out the tartness of the lemon curd.
Chocolate Bread & Butter Pudding served with Pistachio ice cream, vanilla anglaise
Interesting ice cream with a very light pistachio taste.
Side view of the chocolate bread and butter pudding.
It was quite dense and may be a little too heavy for one if not for the ice cream and vanilla cream.
PB’s Coffee, $8++
Lovely interior filled with logs as the crowd empties out.

The Penfolds wines in various sizes.
Overall, an enjoyable steak lunch for $40++. Would have been great if the steak was paired with some fine wines available at the restaurants!
