BLT Steak ♥ ♥

Sunday brunches are my thing. No need to wake up too early, you eat two meals in one go (or three if you have XXXL stomach storage like I do), you relax and take things slow, enjoy the view, the company, the conversation...

This bright and sunny Sunday noon, Shirley and I go to Bistro Laurent Tourondel (not Bacon Lettuce Tomato) Steak to fill up our oversized tummies.


First, we warm up our still half-asleep digestive systems with some munchies from the buffet table…

Still not satisfied, we order an additional appetizer from the ala carte menu.

This turns out to be a total disaster. The batter is too thick, the blue cheese too little, and the prawns are not even a bit spicy. And they charge $138 for that few pieces. Major. Rip. Off.

Boring, tough, and tasteless. I love the wooden popsicle stick, but the steak is actually more m-well than m-rare.

Now this is more like it. The wagyu is tasty, tender and juicy. It is far from being the best, but it does not disappoint either.

I take a mouthful and I immediately understand why this is BLT’s bestselling dessert. The crepe soufflé is warm, moist and spongy. I let the bottom soak up as much passion fruit juice as it can absorb, and as if that is not enough, I drizzle some more on top. Each spoonful makes my mouth water and leaves me wanting more. Help!

I love how this baby is so photogenic and all, but after the soufflé, I’ve already exceeded my sourness quota for the day. I say chocolate people better stick to chocolates.
