What: The globally-acclaimed Wolfgang's Steakhouse, serving up some of the best steaks in the world, very recently opened its third branch in the Philippines, right in the heart of bustling BGC.
The revered, upscale chophouse promises a great dining experience—it offers strictly USDA Prime Black Angus beef, which is dry-aged on the premises under an environment with a controlled temperature and humidity for an average of 28 days. This proprietary process of dry-aging, completed on site to perfection, results in luxurious, meltingly tender and juicy steaks, served sizzling hot with a perfectly caramelized crust. Fresh cuts of expertly hand-picked meat are flown in (chilled, never frozen, FYI) each week.
At the time, hungry. And keen on welcoming my 25th birthday month with a bang! I took my mom and sister for dinner at Wolfgang's in early February, just missing the inevitable New Year crowd and dodging the Valentine's rush by a week or two.
What We Ordered
We decided on a Porterhouse Steak For Three (P3488 per 500g) and the Grilled Salmon (P1488), paired with generous helpings of their famed Mashed Potatoes (P398) and Creamed Spinach (P498).
Ceremoniously served to our table a total sizzing spectacle, the Porterhouse was, in my sister's exact words, "a dream." "I'll be thinking about it forever," she sighed, and honestly...same. We ordered the steak half well-done (mom's preference) and half medium-well (mine), but despite the division, the meat was gloriously melt-in-your-mouth tender on the inside, balancing out a crust-laced exterior to swoon over. The perfect mingling of textures. My favorite thing was to scoop up the hot salted butter the beef was broiled in, pouring a little bit over every spoonful of creamed spinach I devoured.
Wolfgang's Steakhouse is worth the pretty penny it costs to dine there. My only one true regret? Not topping off with a glass from their diverse, award-winning selection of fine wines sourced all over the globe! Next time, next time.
