The Royals Steakhouse, Kampong Glam: Halal Steaks, Great Cakes, Cue Lorde’s Song

the royals steakhouse singapore reviewThe Royals started as a halal cake shop in 2003, which expanded to The Royals Steakhouse, a long, small room of a restaurant. And the food was pretty good.

Australian lamb chops ($32, below) was the best thing we ate here: a clean, succulent bite with a smokey aroma.

Overly fatty. Choice of caramelized onion (sweet), black pepper sauce (quite spicy), and the best one of all, mushroom (umami!).

Hazelnut crunch ($6) needed more crunch, but it was balanced and not too sweet. Apple tart ($6.80) was full of soft chunky apple cubes, with a soft crumbly crust—not a bad interpretation of apple tart. But the restaurant didn’t have ice cream, and apple tarts should always go with ice cream.
