The plan was to have dinner at Yardbird, but we got there late and the wait was 45 minutes long.
I was born with infinite patience (applicable only when food-related), but my grumpy-when-hungry cousin who sleeps at 9:45pm every night was itching to eat and go home and hog her bed. So we walked around Soho in search of a back up plan.
I will never say no to steak
Except to Craftsteak, but I didn't know this yet on that fateful day we walked into the
open fire cooking steakhouse concept. The first and last fateful day.
Complimentary dinner rolls with bacon butter (!!!)
Paul had the Half Dozen Seasonal Oysters to start
Ritchie had Heirloom Tomato and Blue Cheese Salad
I had the Foie Gras Parfait with Onion Jam. It was just okay.
We shared a bottle of red and a bottle of H2O
For her mains, Ritchie had Australian Premium Lamb Rack. I think she was happy with it.
Paul and I shared this Canadian T-Bone Steak. It was one of the worst slabs of meat I've had
in Hong Kong.
It was so dry and tough and chewy I think I lost more weight cutting and chewing it than anything
I fed on these sad-tasting broccoli flowers instead
O diba, pumayat ako? Diba??? Look at those biceps and triceps I developed from
the intensive manual labor. And OMG, those sunken cheeks!!! LOL!!! :D
Okay fine, you don't see them but Ritchie and Paul did so they cut me some slack and let me
order my own dessert. They're not big on sweets and wanted to split one mini cheesecake
with me. Hell, NO!!!
So the lovebirds shared this Strawberry Cheesecake with Vanilla Ice Cream
And I had this Chocolate Brownie with Raspberry Sorbet all to myself.
It was like Whammos, except Whammos tasted better.
Food was so disappointing I needed an upper. So I ordered my all-time
favorite grown-up drink (DON'T LAUGH!!!) - Bailey's on the Rocks! :)
