Having just come back from being food-spoiled with on my birthday trip to San Francisco and Napa Valley, I went for my family dinner to the Keg in South Surrey.
We just the Baked Goat Cheese to start which was just as good as last time. It’s a log of goat cheese rolled in sliced toasted almonds, baked, and then served with some toasted bread and a tomato basil salsa. I just love the flavours all combined with the warm goat cheese with a bit of a crunch from the almonds and the fresh tomato and basil on the toasted bread. Love it. My brother ordered some Scallops & Bacon as well, which I didn’t try.
For my main I ordered the 20 oz. T-Bone steak with a double baked potato. A T-Bone is actually two steaks – strip steak and the tenderloin and split in half by a bone. I enjoyed the tenderloin a lot more because it seemed to be quite a bit softer and fattier. One of the reasons why I ordered this steak is because it comes with the nice thin crispy fried onions. I just love it. It’s crispy, a bit oniony, and salty. The double baked potato was crispy on top, and soft and fluffy in the middle.
We also ordered a few sides – Truffle Macaroni and Cheese, Sauteed Mushrooms, and Asparagus. My favourite was definitely the mac and cheese, as it had a really cheesy topping that got a little bit crispy on the edges (which is my favourite!). Aside from the topping, the mac and cheese itself was pretty cheesy and creamy. Not a thin sauce which is a good thing, and it the macaroni wasn’t cooked well, and didn’t get soggy from soaking up the sauce. Didn’t really notice the truffle though. The sauteed cremini mushrooms were good too and had a nice glaze on it and a nice meaty flavour.
My family ordered the Bleu Cheese Filet, 2 7 oz. Filet Mignons, and a 16 oz Rib Steak. The bleu cheese filet was the most flavourful as the same bacon-wrapped filet was topped with bleu cheese, with a bit of garlic cloves and then broiled. For me it’s good that bleu cheese wasn’t super stinky and over powering.
When walking into this restaurant, it seemed really similar to the location on Scott Road, and felt like we’d been there before. It has a lot better atmosphere than the one in Guildford, but I still think the Yaletown location is best.
