I'm Angus Steak House - Darling Harbour, Sydney




Dinner. Feeling alfresco that day, so decided to sup on some good meats while enjoying the view over Darling Harbour that looks like a million bucks (as a comparison, the view over Circular Quay / Sydney Opera House / Sydney Harbour Bridge area looks like a billion bucks - more expensive).

I'm Angus always looks interesting and inviting because of its visible kitchen - what my dad said was right - the cardinal rule on establishing restaurants, if you want the restaurant to be popular and crowded with customers, is to make sure that the cooking area is visible by the diners. Common sense, really - the sight of meat sizzling on grills and the glorious smoke coming out of it does make the stomach rumble and the mouth salivating.

Parmesan Garlic Bread

-> One of the better ones I've tasted. Crispy edges, but still moist in the middle - just the way I like it.

Rating: 8/10


300 gr. Sirloin with Port Jus Sauce

-> I asked for medium rare, but it came out medium. Other than that, this is a good steak. Next time, maybe I should ask for rare so that it would come out medium rare (LOL)

Rating: 7/10


Giant Pork Ribs (full portion)

-> If Hurricane's Ribs (in Bondi) is the yardstick upon which all Sydney ribs (of similar style of cooking) are measured against, I'd say that this one is juuuuust a teeny notch below Hurricane's. The texture is perfect, but Hurricane's sauce has more kick to it. However, there is a reason why should you eat ribs at I'm Angus instead of Hurricane's - it's approximately 5 bucks cheaper and there's no horrendous queues.

Rating: 7.5/10


Conclusion: The best dish in this restaurant this time was the garlic bread??? LOL

FFIchiban, thanks for the info - will definitely try Ribs and Rumps...(although I don't like rumps, to be honest...LOL) Is it the one in Manly?

Dian, steak-ing as in doing your own or dining out? I have some GREAT tips if you're cooking your own steak...heehee.

Haha yeah I am not too fond on rumps either but never fear that's just part of the name! They have really good lazy-aged sirloin and wagyu etc and if you really hungry I recommend the Mixed Grill ($43).

There's one at Manly Beach, Gordon and Macquarie Park.
