Hands up if you’re sick of reading yet another boring review of another restaurant… I know I am! And I’m the one writing them! Instead, I would like to share with you a recipe given to me by the team at Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse. In case you didn’t know, Bistecca has just relocated and renovated.
Don’t worry, if you’re a lover of their traditional Tuscan sharing steaks and authentic Italian cuisine, you won’t have to go far from their previous location. They have moved just next door! Bistecca’s new location is at 26 Mohamed Sultan Road Singapore 238970.
Bistecca, food to love with family and friends
I have never been to Bistecca myself but was invited along to their launch party as Karin van Vliet’s plus one. Karin is the founder of Table Tales and Bistecca is one of the ten restaurants personally selected and featured in the book (a book that we are very proud of because we designed it!). For $10 off Table Tales, use the code VANILLA10. This will entitle you to a free second main course at Bistecca, one of her ten choices for the book.
Karin’s impeccable taste (and extensive research into dining destinations) didn’t fail her with Bistecca. The ambience, service and food are totally on point. I will be back soon with a big group of friends and I’ll even bring along The Vegetarian because their vegetable options were just as good as their enormous, flavourful T-bone steak. Also because they said they would be more than happy to accommodate a non-meat eater :).
Thank you for the wonderful tasting!
Bistecca treated us to a beautiful and bountiful sharing meal. We feasted on burrata, charcuterie, octopus, risotto and their Bistecca alla Fiorentina wagyu T-bone steak, prepared traditionally over a wood-fired grill. There were sides aplenty and we finished with three desserts and petit fours. That evening, we also enjoyed fantastic conversation and, as we were leaving, they gave us a gift that would delight any foodie. We received a Bistecca signature wooden board and a little jar of their special steak salt along with the recipe.
A salt for almost anything!
I’m happy to share this recipe with you because I am obsessed with this little jar of salt. It has also proved to be a wonderful addition to just about anything that needs a bit of flavour. For example, I have used it on plain boiled eggs, vegetables before roasting and I will confess to sneaking little pinches of the salt, all by itself, now and again. Imagine what this salt would do with a big juicy steak!
Try the recipe and let us know what you think. I have yet to use it with a steak at home and this is because I would much rather visit Bistecca again to enjoy their open, friendly hospitality and just relax in their swanky and lush setting.
