Gigantic desserts galore

This was a sweet four gathering to try the huge desserts at the The Steak House Winebar + Grill.
As I have not been there before, I made a reservation through their website.
They actually called me back, unlike other hotels/restaurants who have websites with emails to make it look like a website!!!
Anyway, they called me and said that The Steak House Winebar + Grill has a minimum charge of $500 per person so for desserts you can just walk in and dine at their bar section.
Luckily when we got there, the bar was comfortable with sofas and nice chairs.
Although I knew the desserts were huge from the review, I didn't realize they were that big.
I was planning to order the Green Tea fondant, Trifle, Tofu dome mousse, New York on diet or the Caramel pecan turtle and a lobster macaroni.
I thought the four of us could share four desserts each having a quarter, but they advised us that they were huge and we could only manage two.
So in the end we just ordered the Green Tea Fondant and the Trifle.
Green Tea Fondant:
It was huge and had a mega amount of fondant in the middle, it seemed to take forever for it all to ooze out!
The green tea taste was quite strong but the sweetness was quite sweet.
There was vanilla sauce which we did not use.
The caramelized strawberry slices were really nice.
The custard was quite creamy.
It was slightly different to the British version because this one was richer.
Tap water / hot water was not free but according to some reviews it appears to be free if you persist!!
Service: Depend on who you (quoted from the previous review)
Service charge: 10%

Girl's night out @ The Steakhouse Wine Bar + Bar
LL99 (80 Review(s))
As the title states, it was girl's night out on Saturday and having decided that we all wanted to go for a nice dinner before pre-Halloween celebrations, we ended up booking at Intercontinental hotel's Steakhouse~
6pm found us being led into the dimly lit dining room and we were seated by the windows which offered a decent view of the water. The layout of the steakhouse is more of a square, with the tables set out along the sides of the square, leaving the centre of the room open for their renowned appetiser buffet table. Their menus are quite interesting, at first I thought we were being presented with a standard book, but upon opening, it was actually a double screen listing out the menu in an electronic fashion. Very techy, but as the surroundings grew darker, the brightness of the screen became a bit harsh on the eyes.
Bread was served first. A simple assortment of dark rye, sourdough, baguette, sesame lavosh and parmesean crisp in a cone shaped basket. Unfortunately the bread was not served warm, but it was of decent quality. I liked the lavosh bread most, crunchy with the toasted sesames giving a nice flavour.
We were also served a small bowl of parmesean crisps with pumpkin dip, the crisps were fine, shattering nicely with a light pressure, but I found the pumpkin dip to be a little bland.
I was the only one that ordered an appetiser, but I was very glad I did as the lobster bisque was quite marvellous. Smooth and rich, the flavour of the bisque was intensely concentrated with a few bite sized pieces of lobster hidden inside. I really liked this, as it was not overly salty and it was served piping hot which was definitely a plus for me.
It was quite amusing that we chose to go to The Steakhouse, despite two of us being non-beef eaters, but that was not a problem since we discovered that The Steakhouse does other items very well too. Originally, I was not going to order steak either, as I had a very solid recommendation from a reliable source that the Sea Bass was worth trying, but since J and S decided to order the Sea Bass I picked the centre cut filet mignon (12oz) instead. H was definitely going the steak route choosing the special of the day which was Nebraskan aged beef (14oz) and C chose the organic Welsh lamb racks.
Prior to serving the mains, a slim rectangular rack holding 8 shot glasses of different types of salt was placed on the table. The Steakhouse is renowned for this, as it gives diners the opportunity to try out the varying flavours of salts from around the world, intriguing, but I do not think any of us used it on our mains. Us meat eaters were also able to choose our own knives which gave a personal touch towards the whole experience.
Our mains soon arrived which was accompanied by a waiter proffering a tray with a wide selection of different types of mustards. I picked the seeded, dijon and honey to be my choices for the evening. When my filet mignon was placed in front of me I was stunned at the size and a little worried that the thickness of the cut would result in the meat not being overcooked. How wrong I was. The knife cut through the filet like it was cutting butter and one slice into it revealed a gorgeous pink hue. It was so so tender and perfectly seared so that the juices were locked into the meat. Very good~
H's aged Nebraskan steak had a stronger beef flavour, but I found the texture to be overly chewy. It did not seem to bother H though as she managed to finish the whole steak with ease.
I tried some of J's sea bass and I can really understand why this was recommended to me. It was perfectly cooked, the snow white flesh firm, but easily chewed and it carried a wonderful buttery flavour which I think was largely attributed to the natural oils of the bass. I really enjoyed this and probably ate about a third of J's dish
C's lamb was remarkable too, cooked to her requested medium rare, it was tender with no gamey taste at all. Coupled with mint jelly, it really was a winning combination
In addition to our already generously sized mains, we ordered four sides to share:
Creamed spinach- wilted spinach in a light cream. It was not as heavy as I expected it to be and it probably was the side I enjoyed the most.
Black truffle mashed potatoes- this was not smoothly blended as it was slightly lumpy, but the black truffle aroma was there.
Steamed broccoli with garlic- this was exactly its namesake. Nothing really special, but gave us our required greens intake.
Garlic mushrooms- the mushrooms were very fleshy with a pleasant chewy texture, it was fragrant from the garlic oil, but lacked a little in the salt department.
We did not order desserts, since we had other plans for indulging our sweet tooths, but overall it was a highly satisfying meal~ Recommended!

HK Epicurus (1080 Review(s))
The Steak House. The one and only, with proper Charcoal Grill and Premium Steak cuts and Dry Aging.
French Quercy Rack of Lamb. 16Oz - $680
This was recommended by a foodie friend, and it was truly exceptional indeed, after being cooked well on the charcoal bed. The portion seemed bigger than the size suggested. ~ 8/10
Dry Aged for 24 Days, Cold Smoked, USDA Prime Porterhouse 20Oz, Medium Rare - $1080
It’s not often when you see a properly Dry Aged and Cold Smoked combination. The charcoal grill already imparts some smokiness onto the steak but prior to that it has carried some cold smoked aroma. Double smoked meat, interesting indeed. Considering the massive size of this slab of meat, the price is reasonable. Properly charred with beef and grilling flavours. Great in all aspects. ~ 9/10
Lobster Truffled Macaroni – $90
Reasonably priced, this was cooked perfectly with a lot of condensed lobster taste with some truffle paste taste. The pasta of Macaroni was done good enough. A Must Order here. ~ 8/10

We arrived in the earlier session : 6:00-8:00. There few people there, but the noise level got a bit louder as more people come in. They handed out LED back-lit menus which helped us read the menu when the light was dim.
We sat at a table for two in the main dining hall. I feel that we were a bit too closed to the table of four next to us (for a restaurant of this caliber) as we were able to distinctly hear their conversation. This is not pleasurable. We decided to seek the help of a few glass to block out the background noise.
Service was good. We ordered 2 steaks and I wanted Roquefort to top mine. We were asked whether we are sharing, and we were. They served up equal portions of each the two steaks on our plates, with mine having the cheese and my date not. It is the details that shows the care.
We had to hop to a few gatherings afterwards so we were more prudent with our order volume today. The server suggested their carafe of Brunello Di Montalcino, taken from a Jeroboam apparently. It went well with the steak, especially with a nice punch through the Roquefort topped sliced cap (more on that later). It was a good versatile choice.
It would be heresy to come to a great steakhouse and waste room on other dishes, in my opinion. We opted out of the appetizer and dessert as it was American size afterall, and we wanted to save room for the sides and of course the steak.
They were very courteous to serve us their onion soup gratis as we had not ordered appetizers. Served in a shot glass sized cup and saucer like English tea. The soup was decent, not too salty, of a medium bite.
We were also served bread basket, with thins and rolls and a selection of three spreads. (see other reviews above for details)
Order (for 2):
Rib Cap, 12 oz
New York Strip, 18oz
Rocquetfort Blue Cheese
The Portobello mushrooms were very juicy and tender, a much appreciated side for the steak. The potato gratin was creamy and cheesy, and while tasted great was not in the realm of spectacular.
I am a fan of the Rib Cap, which while I grill and cut them myself I was not aware that they serve this individually in Hong Kong. This is actually the outside cut of a usual rib eye steak, where it is extensively marbled. For those who really like the intense flavour of steaks, this is the choice. The cut was well marbled, tender, flavorful, and done at the right temperature (We ordered medium, as it was fatty enough to withstand more doneness). This steak goes well with a strong red wine that pierce through the fat, with very masculine taste a deep charcoal smoke (not burnt, I might add). This went extremely well with the Roquefort, a generous slab placed on the steak.
The New York strip was very juicy, flavorful and a classic favorite for those who love the sight of browned steak’s pink center. The key to this cut is age and timing, as these two factors affect the tenderness of the cut, which can get very, very chewy. The steak was soft to the knife, quite tender though of course not as much as the cap, with a slight crisp on first cut. It was very well executed as well.
While I think there should be more attention paid to the ambiance of the place, given its stature as one of the pillar of restaurant establishments in Hong Kong, the steaks were superb and service was up to par. You can feel that this place respects the food it serves, rather than many other steak houses that only play on the gimmicks. This is no doubt one of the best places to fulfill your steak desires in Hong Kong.

The aptly named 'Steak House' has been a fixture at the Intercontinental Hotel (and previously the Regent) for as long as I can remember. After undergoing a renovation and makeover 4-5 years ago, the place transformed from a nice place with great steaks to a 'trendy' place with great steaks.
We started off in the bar, located next to the main dining room. Large, red-leather banquettes and comfortable chairs make the place a great first stop for a pre-dinner cocktail. Along with your drinks, they serve a small bowl of fat, juicy green olives and some wasabi peas. Those olives are to die for...I could nearly make a meal out of those...
After taking our seat at the dining table, we selected our menu choices. Most of us chose to enjoy the fabulous salad bar that is available.
One might think that a salad bar is nothing special, but maybe because they're such a rarity in Hong Kong, the Steak House's iteration stands out. Large bowls are different lettuces, dozens of different vegetables, some grilled vegetables and even grilled fruits, nuts, pickles, and fruit, and then a modest, but quality selection of cheeses. Again, it would be easy to make a meal out of this alone (and I know people who have done just that!)...but you need to be sure to save room for the main course!
One of our party also had the lobster bisque. A generous portion of creamy soup, with some chunks of lobster meat. Having had this several times before, its nice, but far from the best lobster bisque I've had. A bit lighter than I prefer and also not nearly enough lobster meat (especially given the price).
Another starter to consider is the foie gras, again, nice, if that's what you're in the mood for, but not the finest execution.
Of course what everyone comes here for is the steak, and the Steak House doesn't disappoint. Generous (14-18oz) cuts of New York sirloin will be brought out to you. The Steak House grills their meat over charcoal so the flavor is special. No butter or other condiments to take away from the taste either.
The meat is grilled to perfection, which is not always easy given that thicker cuts of meat are hard to cook through without overdo'ing the edges.
The steaks are served by themselves, with accompaniments needing to be ordered a la carte. Recommended here are the lobster macaroni (essentially macaroni cooked in the lobster bisque...nice!). Also the onion rings, and any of the potato dishes are sure things.
One of our party doesn't eat beef but instead chose the rack of lamb. Fantastic! A HUGE 4-bone rack is brought (uncut) so the center is nice and rare, just how I like it. Highly recommended if you're in the mood for meat, but not beef.
One of the gimmicks of the SH is they like to offer an array of options for routine items. For example, along with your bread basket (nice selection by the way), they bring you a trio of butters, including plain, black truffle, and sun dried tomato.
In addition, instead of offering just plain table salt or may sea salt, they bring you a rack featuring 8 eight or ten different salts from around the world. These include smoked salt, peruvian pink, hawaiian, etc.
For your steak, they also offer you a choice of steak knives...some small and delicate looking ones from Japan or France, all the way up to a machete-looking thing from America. I favor the Global knife from Japan or something the Laguiole from France.
Lastly, to accompany your entree, they will offer you a selection of I think 16 different mustards, from basic english and dijon, all the way to flavored mustard with horseradish or chili.
I have to give credit to the staff for being able to remember all these different options.
Desserts are great, but the portion size is crazy. One dessert can serve 6-8 people...no kidding!
My one big gripe here is the price. $700+ for a steak, plus $200+ for starters, etc means a big bill is coming at the end of the evening. No doubt the Steak House has great food, and the crowds seem to show that. But, someone in the hyper-competitive restaurant industry will come along and undercut them on price while offered the same high quality. It's only a matter of time.
Also, I have to complain about the bottled water cost...over $100 for a 300 ml bottle Come on. Don't insult us. Also, the wine by the glass prices are equally insulting. $175/glass was the cheapest red wine on the list. Again, as someone who dines out seven nights a week, I understand that alcohol is a profit-center for restaurants, but to me this is pure taking advantage of the consumer. Intercontinental...take note...wine drinkers will vote with their pocketbooks!
All in all though, the Steak House is still one of my favorite places in Hong Kong and the tops for red meat in the city. But I hope they don't rest on their laurels and feel they can take advantage of their loyal clientele.
