I was initially excited when I saw that Sizzlin’ Steak opened a branch at SM East Ortigas. Being a confirmed carnivore, I decided to take the fam out to lunch here one Saturday.
The place was packed when we got there (the resto being newly opened and all) but there were still some unoccupied tables at the back, which, curiously, the servers weren’t ushering us to. After some minutes of awkward waiting, we were finally seated.
We crossed-ordered some items from Teriyaki Boy next door (read about that here) but Hubby and I decided to get twin orders of Australian Marbled Steak (Php675 each) for ourselves. These were served on sizzling plates with plain rice and some veggies; the gravy, of course, was poured over the steaks for that sizzle.
Given the price of this dish, I wish there was more I could say about it. Sadly, I had to sprinkle some salt on my steak to get a little more flavor out of it.
The service was also slow. Aside from not being quick to usher us to our seats, the staff also neglected to refill our water glasses (I ended up having to stand up and get the water pitcher myself). Lastly, they forgot to give us the official receipt I requested for.
Oh, well. Maybe next time, I’ll have a better experience here.

This Australian Marbled Steak from @sizzlinsteak in SM East Ortigas was a bit of a let-down. At Php675, I wish there was more I could say about it. Read my resto review at beingjellybeans.wordpress.com (search: Sizzlin’ Steak). #maybenexttime #foodie #foodiepinion #imjustsaying
