Poor toilet.

I quite frequently eat off "The Seniors Menu" and even at that, the portions are STILL too large!!

The wife and I went into a new restaurant about a year ago and ended up sharing just one meal. No way could we eat all that stuff! We'd have felt miserable for a week!

...but yet I always absolutely pig out at an all-you-can-eat joint.

I just can't work out why there is a global obesity epidemic happening. Eating a 3 or 4 pound steak sounds like gourmand way to spend an evening.

I like a nice bit of dead cow as much as the next person, but a 3 or 4 pound steak is bloody ridiculous. I just don't see how one could fully appreciate it. It is like drinking a nice bottle of red in 3 minutes. What a waste.

That's my thoughts, anyway.

Yup medium rare is what I like. What I don't like is when a steak place makes it medium to almost medium well when you ordered a medium rare. I think a ribeye is in order soon

Interesting topic

Commonly at these high end steak houses here in the USA, those types of steaks will cost around $50 (price not including side dishes). It’s typically Prime Grade which usually tends to be hard to find in the supermarkets. Hence, it’s expensive. Whether it tastes better or not is subjective to the individual.

Anyway, I’ve never had a problem finishing a big steak. But there are usually options of getting something smaller like at around 16 oz or less. it will still be expensive though.

One of the reasons why I like going to these expensive steak houses is because they’re old fashioned. A lot of the stuff on the menu is the same stuff from the 1970s or even 50s. Sometimes I do get in the mood to eat a fancy dinner that serves food from the Madmen TV show era and I wil also l order an old style martini with olive. The kind of cocktail that was popular when grand pa was a young man.

I haven't gone out for steak since I discovered sous vide, who's w/ me? 1-2 hours at 130-135°F for medium rare, finished w/ a sear on cast iron or w/ torch. You can literally make high end restaurant steak for 1/3 the cost.

I agree that it’s possible to make a good steak at home.

But the reason why I go and pay stupid money is because I like the interior decor and sitting at the bar and looking at strangers around me. I’m basically superficial but it’s fun.
