Meat Craving Satisfied at Beefbar
I arrived slightly earlier than the rest of the party, so I could let my bottle take a breather ahead of time. The interior of the restaurant was in contemporary, minimalist style unlike the more traditional steakhouses - the white, grey and black color scheme across the spacious dining area with the wine bottles on display in the temperature-controlled units may sound a bit "cold" but with the dimmed amber lighting and leather couches I felt it's cozy and comfortable.
It was a tough decision to skip dessert - who could possibly walk away from ordering the chocolate and caramel souffle with yuzu icecream - but reluctantly we did so knowing there's zero chance we could even finish half of that among all of us, though I did regret a little bit afterwards but hey there's always the next time.
Waking up the next morning with a good meat sweat in the face and still reminiscing about that wonderful piece of meat was surely an indication of how much I enjoyed the evening and I am glad to have my meat craving properly dealt with this way.
