Craftsteak, Soho, Hong Kong
Craftsteak is one of the restaurants owned by Dining Concepts which can be located in Soho. I was craving steak one day, and all I could think about was that – steak! I didn’t and wouldn’t eat anything else, so did a little bit of googling (the beauty of internet) and found Craftsteak – open fire cooking, and they have the ‘freshest cuts of steaks from Australia, USA, and Canada’ – how can I say no to that?
So I ‘dragged’ the boys at work and wondered up to Soho to Craftsteak. It was relatively busy when we got there, thankfully we did get a table without booking. Crafsteak offers diners set lunches – a combination of Appetizers and Main, Appetizers and Dessert or if you are super-duper hungry, all three – Appetizers, Main and Dessert.
We started with warm bread which was soft, and fluffy and bacon flavoured butter – oh my!
The boys couldn’t help but order a couple more servings! Talk about filling up on bread!
I was on a mission – I wanted steak so no guessing what I had! I started with classic Caesar Salad – it was refreshingly light and tasty.
C had the mixed salad leaves with house vinaigrette, which I thought looked a little sad but very colourful. He did say that it was good and exactly what he wanted.
J had the summer corn chowder – it was creamy but not sickening.
For mains, both C and I had the 8oz hanger steak with French fries and steak sauce (we had to pay an extra but I can’t for the life remember how much). It was a generous serving of steak – it was HUGE! Char-grilled, and cooked medium rare – just the way I like it. It was juicy, tender and exactly what I wanted and needed!
J couldn’t go past craft burger, bacon, cheese, and steak house sauce and fries. Oh my! What a large serving. I can’t believe he finished it all – needless to say, he fell into a food coma that afternoon and had to undo his pants whilst working! J can eat, and he was even defeated by the burger. I still can’t believe he polished the whole thing!
C couldn’t resist a chocolate brownie, it was deliciously dense and chocolate-y!
Service was good, the only gripe I had was coming out of the restaurant smelling a little ‘smokey’ but food was definitely delicious and I am looking forward to going back again to try their other dishes. I heard the chicken was good also. Bit of a trek but worth it!
