How was it?
I happened to have a business dinner during my birthday feasting weekend, so I'm not sure if it really counts as a stop, but there was food involved and it was during the weekend of feasting, so I think it counts, right?!
On this cold Sunday night, a Dutch man requested 'Australian Steak'. So, I was a little bit selfish and decided to pick a place that I hadn't yet tried. Hehe. I did a bit of research and because we had to be in the city region, I chose I'm Angus. They had received some good reviews and it was in a great location to show off our beautiful city :)
I first noticed how open and spacious the restaurant was. There is indoor and outdoor seating and an open kitchen. They also have an extensive wine list, with one wall lined with rows of different wines, and another wall has a whole history of steak written on it (quite cool). You can also watch them cooking/grilling meat from the window outside.
I wasn't particularly in the mood to go out this evening, let alone to have a huge meal after overdosing on sugar at high tea earlier in the day. So I decided against choosing anything too heavy and ordered the smoked salmon caesar salad, whilst both men chose the 'best steak' (according to the waiter) - the Prime Fillet.
Prime Fillet 250gr $38.00
Extra sauce $4.00
After the first bite of the steak, the Dutch proclaimed that it was the best he'd ever had and he was completely in love with Australian steak after that. He also mentioned that it was a waste to get the sauce, because the steak was perfect without any extra condiments. Whilst he was in awe and praising his steak, I imagined his reaction if I had taken him to Prime (the best steak I have tried, to date)! Probably would have skipped out on his visa and stayed in the country! lol.
My salad was simple and tasty. A generous portion of smoked salmon, bacon bits, cheese, croutons and creamy caesar salad dressing went down very well.
An extra salad for the steak eaters to balance out the vegetable/meat ratio. Simple and fresh vegetables, satisfied all parties.
After the mains, we moved on to dessert. A cheese platter was ordered as well as the apple & blackberry crumble. There was some blue cheese, cheddar and brie, along with some lavosh and dried fruit. I especially loved the brie... mm.. yummo. I didn't have too much of it though because I wanted more of the crumble. I loved the crumbly biscuity top and the warm apple & blackberry filling, topped with some vanilla ice cream. Yum! Oh, how I love a good crumble!

It's a bit weird, but every year, the night before my birthday - I have some form of crumble. OK, not every year, but this year and last year! lol. Maybe I'll make it a tradition?
It was probably a waste for me to go and not try the steaks here, but the feedback that I received was that the steaks were very tasty indeed. I'm Angus is in a great location and prices reflect that. If you're in the city and looking for a good steakhouse, I'm Angus might just be your answer.
