If you love steak and Western cuisine, there's a new award-winning casual steakhouse that just opened its first store in the Philippines: Astons Specialities! This Singapore-based restaurant chain is renowned for serving affordable Western cuisine. (It has won Best Western Restaurant at the AsiaOne's People Choice Awards and continues this tradition of excellence that founder Aston Soon began in 2005.)
Astons Specialities takes pride in its steak selections and homely Western food, without the hefty price tag. Among its popular menu items, Astons boasts a wide selection of Legendary Steaks.
Their Prime Sirloin (P1,099) is served with perfect grill marks on the outside and is juicy and flavorful on the inside. If you prefer another meat cut, you could also go for their Prime Ribeye X'tra Cut (P1,699)! Every order of these steaks by the way automatically comes with two sides, hot or cold, and is charbroiled to your preferred doneness. (Just inform your server!)
Not in the mood for steak? Astons also serves Grillworks Chicken which is chicken seasoned in a myriad of flavors, including their classic Chargrilled Chicken (P349) and a Hickory BBQ Chicken (P349). All Grillworks Chicken orders also come with a choice of two side dishes.
Speaking of sides, they offer 14 side dishes to pair your steak with, including five different ways to enjoy your potatoes (Mashed, Baked, as Wedges or Fries, or cold as a Potato Salad). If you're hankering for a snack, you could also go for their Mexican Nachos, available with chicken (P168) or beef (P188), or share a Grand Sampler consisting of Italian garlic sausage, cocktail franks, cheese sausage, and German sausage (P799).
Finally, you can also pick from their Spaghetti Fiesta, which includes a variety of spaghetti dishes and comes with Cream of Mushroom Soup! Some must-try items are the Beef Bolognese (P299), the Carbonara (P299), and the Salmon Spaghetti (P350).
