The surest way to my heart is through a steak.
A badass steak, that is.
Any tiffs & arguments amongst friends and lovers can be resolved with steak.
That is why choosing your steakhouse is so god damn important.
If you get it wrong; you’re probably going to end up in the dog house for a week.
This is no joke.
One of my secret weapons comes in the form of The Meat and Wine Co.
The Meat and Wine Co. is a global African Steak house, with it’s one and only flagship restaurant in the UK nestled in Westfield – Shepherd’s Bush branch – London.
They have their own exclusive line of beef; the Monte Beef brand, which is sourced from only premium breeders of primarily the Angus cattle, whom are carefully reared and grazed on selected farms.
So these are happy pampered cows.
300g Wagyu Steak £55, served with potato chips £2.25 & green beans with cherry tomatoes £5.00.
The Wagyu cattle are raised having daily massages and have beer/sake/red wine added to their feed, they are also genetically predisposed to having intense marbling. Making them renowned for their tenderness, flavour and well marbled texture. High quality.
The 300g Wagyu steak is one of the most expensive cuts of meat on the whole menu.
It was worth every penny.
The steak came to me glistening from the BBQ glaze, it was cooked medium rare and had that char grilled flavour that’s so difficult to achieve.
The Wagyu steak was impossibly flawless, it was unbelievably tender, so intensely flavoured unlike any other steak I’ve ever had before and just melt-in-your-mouth awesome.
You don’t need anything else.
500g T-Bone Steak £45, served with potato chips £2.25 & green beans with cherry tomatoes £5.00.
This one was a man’s steak.
Please do not attempt to order this if you’re a pansy.
The T-Bone is comprised of the short loin and the tenderloin, and is a proper hunk of meat; just look at the size of him..
When something is that huge and still tender and soft, you just know that this is a serious steak.
Size does matter in this case.
I’ll let the steak do the talking for this one. So go scroll back up and have an ogle.
Chef’s Selection of Desserts £12.50 – Chocolate Pistachio Fondant, Chocolate Brownie Sundae, Mango Sorbet, Creme Brulee, Nelson Mandela’s Malva Cake.
How else are you going to know which one is your favourite?
One of the worst feelings in the world is food envy.
I get that real bad, especially if someone else has the dessert that I want instead of my own.
I’ll let you imagine the consequence of that scenario.
But you really can’t go wrong with Malva cake, Chocolate Pistachio Fondant, Chocolate Brownie Sundae AND Mango Sorbet.
Personally I could eat the Malva cake all day.
So if you do want to play conservative, order that.
