“A tomahawk (also referred to as a hawk) is a type of axe from North America, traditionally resembling a hatchet with a straight shaft. You can read more here.”

The Tomahawk Steak is a Bone-In Rib Steak with the entire rib bone intact. This long bone is frenched (trimmed of meat and fat), leaving a beautiful presentation piece. The Tomahawk, being a Rib Steak, has the largest amount of intermuscular fat, making it the most flavorful steak. The Tomahawk is cut based on the thickness of the bone and is typically two inches thick. One Tomahawk can easily feed two people. The Tomahawk is cut from the rib section. The primary muscle of the Tomahawk is the longissimus dorsi, which is also the primary muscle in the Porterhouse. Source from here.

The Tomahawk steak had everyone full attention once it nicely presented on the table. Mr Stanley and his assistant gently cut the prime steak and served to each of us….

I like my steak with the original taste which is without any sauce, but I did tried out the 3 types of sauces provided. Among all, I like the garlic sauce very much (strongly recommended by Mr Stanley).

This was a total different dining experience enjoying the steak in Johor Bahru. And It was also my great pleasure to enjoyed this wonderful dinner together with Mr Tony from Johorkaki.

Thanks to Mr Stanley and his team who presented such a Fabulous dish from Lazio Restaurant.
