Popular western food stall at Toa Payoh nestled among HDB blocks and beside CHIJ Secondary School, we visited Uno Beef House for their hotplate beef steak for this food review.
Served on a sizzling hotplate, Uno Beef House served up our order within 8 minutes even with a full house lunch crowd. Most of the patrons in the coffee shop that they reside in were there for Uno Beef House. And majority of them were having what we ordered : Black Pepper Sirloin Steak.

Topped with softened onion bits and greasy black pepper sauce, their beef steak was beautifully caramalized. With charred bits on the sides for the extra smoky flavour. Ordered at medium rare, it was amazingly tender and amply seasoned. Thickness was not exactly what you would expect with restaurant standards, but definitely within hawker’s. Its sauce certainly did compliment its juicy steak, elevating its steak for the layered taste it provided. On the sides was a wedge of tomato, some uninteresting baked beans, as well as a ball of fried potato. Interesting way of serving up their potato in a ball shape, but it dry and mellow in its taste. Don’t expect the kind of flavour explosion you get from a begedil.
Portion was satisfactory, with their beef steak slightly larger than our medium sized palm. At $15 an order, it was definitely on the expensive side for a hawker dish. Probably not an item we would order on a regular basis.
Uno Beef House may be popular with their sizzling beef steak, but definitely not economical in terms of quantity. Quality was satisfactory but not mind blowing level.
