Gold Coast Prime Rib

Long before staycation became a household word, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel, a resort hotel located on the waterfront of Tuen Mun Gold Coast, has long been a favourite weekend retreat for visitors and local Hong Kong residents alike. The hotel is set up perfectly for staycations, offering plentiful play areas and activities for children, lush gardens for relaxation, a long sandy beach next door , and a scenic waterfront plus marina that makes an idyllic setting. To satisty its guests, the hotel also offers a robust line-up of dining outlets, capped by its steak house, appropriately named Gold Coast Prime Rib, and our culinary destination this month .
 
Located on the lobby floor, the Gold Coast Prime Rib is spacious and nicely appointed. The expansive view of the marina complements the restaurant’s contemporary steakhouse style décor which exudes a relaxing and friendly ambience.
 
The restaurant's menu is classical American steakhouse, serving up a selection of USDA beef cuts, Australian lamb chops, seafood items plus favourite American starters and sides. The relaxing ambience had already helped amp our appetite, and we ordered accordingly. For starters, we had New Orleans Crab Cakes ($138), served with remoulade sauce and butter lettuce. The crab cake is a favourite standby – tender meat lightly fried to perfection.
 
French Onion Soup ($98) is another classic soup that we always enjoy; this one is also nicely prepared – flavourful broth, thick cheese layer and plenty of onions.
 
For our main, we ordered several to compare. We had to try the restaurant’s signature Gold Coast Prime Rib Sets, which is pan-fried prime rib. We had the Signature Cut (8oz/$518), medium rare. Other cuts include the Starter Cut (5oz/$358) and the Jumbo Cut (10oz/$608). Each set includes a choice of a salad, soup or dessert and the prime rib is served with seasonal vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. The beef is juicy, tender, and flavourful. We were particularly partial to the crusty end-cut.
 
We also wanted to try a properly grilled steak, for which we picked the USDA Choice Ribeye (10oz/$418), served with seasonal vegetables, steak fries, Bearnaise sauce and pepper sauce, and grilled medium rare, of course. We like ribeye for its stronger flavour, and the meat was grilled tender enough. For our wine to accompany the beef, we had a nice medium-bodied 2016 Australian Hollick Wrattonbully Shiraz.
We also ordered Grilled Norwegian salmon steak (8oz/$248) served with seasonal vegetables, boiled potatoes and champagne sauce to round out the selection. For desserts, we opted for Traditional Apple Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream ($138), its generous serving to be shared.
 
The restaurant boasts a good selection of wines and cocktails to choose from. We should also mention that it also offers a Kids’ Menu and an Afternoon Tea Menu.
The Gold Coast Prime Rib is just the place when you or your family are in the mood for a nice, relaxed steak dinner while soaking in the lovely ambience inside and the tranquil views of the waterfront. We highly recommend you give it a try.
