Crazy Horse

No, they don't sell horse nor certainly no crazy horse.

They sell steak.

In fact, this place serves the BEST and most expensive (I think) steak in Wellington! People have been raving about this place, so I decided to find out how BEST their steaks are. Looking through their menu, mainly steaks with different cuts, are all highly priced ($30 - $40) as I expected (Hey it is a fine dining). BUT when I got to the last item of their mains, my eyes almost popped out! A good 300g sirloin steak for NZ$80!!!!! (O_O)!!!! I had a hard time holding my eyes in. $80!!! What kind of steak is it? Century steak ar? As much as I could make myself to believe in what I saw, I couldn't believe I actually went ahead to order this thing! OMG, what had got into me? As how Rick had put it: "Hey, you're already here to taste their specialty why not go all the way?" So, there I was, bravely ordered this sirloin steak, medium rare with my choice of style - Mushrooms. Rick ordered their normal range of Rib Eye Steak, medium rare with classic style.

After a good 15 mins wait, the food arrives. A big white plate with a piece of steak on mushrooms, topped with mushrooms gravy. Looks like any ordinary steak, nothing special. A bit disappointed. BUT, as soon as I put a piece in my mouth, my whole body went alive! Yes, it was good, it was great, IT WAS THE BEST!!!! No kidding, the best steak I've ever tasted! The tenderness and the taste all hit the jackpot. So, I can say I didn't regret though I still think $80 is a bit too costly. But if this is the price to pay for the best, then it is! Rick was extremely happy with his Rib Eye too.

Would I go back there again? Yes, I don't mind going back for their normally range steaks since they're already so much better than other restaurants but definitely will not order their Sirloin. I've tried it, it was great and that is enough.




I simply love the painting

I was looking at the whipped potato. It looks good.

Gosh, looks like the steak there is the best! It's just that I now cut down on red-meat.

Wishing you a good week.
