Started off with some really delicious bread, served hot with 3 types of butter... plain unsalted, mint and spicy mustard. Until today, the tastes still lingers in me. The one thing about the 3 butters was how well the aroma and taste blended so well with the bread, which were lightly spiced already, thus making it really enjoyable. Tummy rating: 9/10
Now, if the starter was already mind blowing for me, i cannot wait for the mains we've ordered - an 8 oz Aussie Fillet Mignon and an 16 oz Aussie T-Bone. As for sides, we had jumbo asparagus and portobello mushrooms which were also, cause for concern after my first bite. They were GOOD. I'm never a fan of jumbo asparagus but what we had were flawless. Tummy rating: 8.6/10
This is the medium done 8oz fillet mignon, in which i had a small bite. Nicely done, nigh perfect texture and true to what others have said, it's the way they do it that leaves it such an impression.
Tummy rating: 9.1/10
Next came my T-Bone, quite possible one of the best T-Bones i've had in my life. The flavour, aroma, texture and almost every criterion you'd care to mention in steaks is represented in full force here. Clearly, the force was with me. Tummy rating: 8.9/10
For a night like this, you cannot not have red wine, and because we are both responsible drinkers and responsible drivers, we also had a litre of Evian mineral water. The wine list was pretty extensive, and the selection, top notch. We had a glass of 2003 Beringer Pinot Noir from Napa Valley and a 2005 J. Lohr 7 oakes Cabernet Savignon, a very characteristic and aromatic wine, best for BBQ and grills. Tummy rating: 7.89/10
So, great evening, good food and lovely companion. Prices are slightly steeper but it's worth it.
