CUT by Wolfgang Puck @ Marina Bay Sands

I was pretty excited to try Wolfgang Puck's first restaurant in Asia. The ambience and service was top-notch. Unfortunately, when it comes to the food, it was good, but wasn't a memorable experience. A slight let down when you take into consideration the premium price you'll be paying. We started off dinner with the Bone Marrow Flan, Mushroom Marmalade, Parsley Salad which was absolutely delicious.
We also ordered the white salad with asparagus. The taste was exquisite, but the plating was a bit too bare for me.
And now, the star of the show. The American Wagyu. We were told the difference between the Japanese Wagyu and its American counterpart is that the American cut is less fatty, not so much of a melt-in-your-mouth. It was recommended, and we decided to go with it.
Plating was a tad bare as well. We didn't realise we had to order sides to go with it. But, it was well seasoned and cooked to perfection.
We also ordered the Double Thick Iberico Pork Chop, Honey Crisp Apple-Apricot “Moustarda”. I'd say it was only so-so. The first one came out to be too salty. The server was kind enough to get the chef to cook us another one, which was seasoned well. But it wasn't anything to shout about.
And since they didn't have any beer on tap, we opted for this.
The bill came out to about $400 plus. Verdict: I'm glad I gave CUT a try but I doubt I'll be returning any time soon.
