This meal was not to celebrate some kind of special day. But it was rather a compensation meal! One night, I came home from a long bus ride. While on the bus, I called my husband and asked that he meet me at the bus stop to walk me home. Since it was late at night, I had already used up my energy for the day, and all I was asking for was his company on the way. After I got off the bus, I thought I had arrived too early, as I did not see him. But then, as I walked all the way home, and up those four flights of stairs, the first thing I saw when I opened the door was my darling husband, DOZING OFF on the bed... Now under normal circumstances, I could tell myself to not be too clingy. But I was pregnant! And was well into late second trimester!! So, in short, I was furiuos! The next day, I asked him what he had thought of doing to make it up to me... hence, we were here for a steak feast!
This was not our first visit to the steakhouse. I didn't take any photos during our first visit, so obviously, there had been no article posted. This time, there were just the two of us, so nothing could stop me from taking pictures of the meal!
The menu lists the recommended meals.
There was also a page of recommendation for a feast for two.
Otherwise, you can also pick from these lovely sets.
There was also a sticker on the table that tells you if you check-in on Facebook, you'd get a complimentary plate of braised beef tendons. Well, the check-in can wait till the meal arrived!
The utensils were on the table, covered by napkins to avoid dust and what not.
The salad bar was nothing special. Keep in mind, it was an economic steakhouse, so don't expect anything fancy!
There were two kinds of soups to choose from, which was quite nice!
Also a variety of drinks to choose from.
There are even two types of bread to choose from.
But the toasting is self-serviced.
With the scandal of the tainted oil, I could not help but wonder whether the spread on the bread had problems. So I had only a few bites.

玉米湯 Corn chowder
Amazingly enough, there were ample ingredients found in the soup.
Salad bowl made by my other half.
Then came the main course!
My sirloin with fusilli.
And steak + chicken and speghetti.
For the cost of the steak, I thought they did a fine job with the steak. If you like it medium or medium-rare, I think that would give you the best taste.
Unlike most night-market style steaks, they don't come drenched in heavy tasting sauce. So you might as well enjoy the steak with a sprinkle of pepper and rose salt.
As for these sauces, they were for the pasta!
And to finish off the meal, there was also ice cream!
But there was something else we were almost forgetting!
The complimentary dish of braised beef tendons!
