We are T-2 nights from the end of our vacation and what a great one it has been! We had a flurry of activity during our days in Vancouver culminating with a fantastic supper out with Ande last night. We headed out to The Keg for a feast. I tried something new, having my steak cooked “Chicago” style.
According to wiki, “A Chicago-style steak is cooked to the desired level and then quickly charred. The diner orders it by asking for the style followed by the doneness (e.g. “Chicago-style rare”).”
I ordered a filet, Chicago med-well. Normally I like my steak well done because I like the charred outside. And I normally don’t order a filet because they hate me for ruining such a lovely steak by having it well done. So I was adventurous and went the Chicago route. OMG – it was so delicious! It was beautifully charred on the outside so I had my crunchy bits, but the inside was slightly pink and so tender. I could cut up the leftovers for the poopers with a butter knife back at the the hotel.
Finished the meal with crème brûlée – great flavour and brûlée, but the texture was a little thick. But very tasty!
And of course the best part of the meal:
The big fella and I both are in agreement that we are ready and eager to get home. We had an awesome time. I’ll have a few more photos and posts to make once we get home.
