death by paper cut

{November 22, 2008}   Astons

although the birthday person is traditionally lavished with favors, it happened the other way around when the geek turned a year older.

the day out concluded with a nice dinner at astons prime located at joo chiat road. the cheaper version is astons specialities; one near astons prime and the other at the cathay. the even cheaper option is astons express at coffee shops kinda like a botak jones concept.

i can’t comment on the other tiers of astons because i have not tried them out, but i can say for sure that astons prime was delightful.

the geek and i both had prime ribs – he had a house cut (still not the largest) and i had the average cut. although i was famished before it was served, i still could not finish all of it.

the prime cut was tender, juicy and done just right (medium rare). the sides were also very good, we shared grilled portabello mushrooms and baked potato skins.

i wonder how astons will compare to morton’s.
