I was at Tosca, Doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru on Saturday night to check out their Grilled Tomahawk steak with Tony, Johor Kaki. Grilled Tomahawk steak is the highlight item which is available from July till September 2017.
What is a Tomahawk Steak?
The Tomahawk Steak is an on-the bone Rib Steak, cut from the Fore-rib with the entire rib bone left. The long bone is French-trimmed, leaving an amazing presentation and dinner table discussion point.
Excutive Chef Jaffrey shared that the Tomahawk steak is a grass fed Australian Black Angus bone-in ribeye. The price is based on the weight of the thick marbled steak and the one we had that night weighted approximately 1.5kg is priced RM500++. We shared among 4 persons.
My first Tomahawk Steak experience was at District 10 Suntec City and it was awesome. So, this is my second time trying it here in Tosca. The steak is seasoned generously with smoked paprika, sea salt and black pepper before starting to grill it. To ensure an even cook, the chef needs to flip the Tomahawk frequently, not only flipping end to end but also side to side. This is to ensure that every part of the meat is nicely grilled.
After the grilling is done, the steak will need to rest approximately 5minutes before cutting it.

Lastly, the chef finished off with sprinkle of salt flakes and it is time to enjoy. The smoky meat tasted juicy, tender and sweet on its own. Diners can request how well they want their meat to be done too. Sides including caramelised lemon, carrot, potatoes, pumpkin, tomatoes and sautéed garlic are served. Grilling the thick tomahawk compound the effect of locking the moisture of the meat and this explains why the meat is juicy and beefy in flavours. It is advisable to enjoy it while it’s hot. So, take a quick snap shot and enjoy it!
