No. 168 Prime Steakhouse
It’s been a while since I updated! And I come back with an uber yummy update. It was my birthday and it’s been a long while since any of the family had decent steak. Therefore, we went for steak. I googled steakhouses in Taiwan, but defaulted to the opinion of Hungry Girl in Taipei. She recommended No. 168 Prime Steakhouse in Grand Victoria Hotel (near Miramar). It is definitely on the pricey side, but I think it was well worth the price. We ordered two sets and two a la carte. The sets came with a starter, soup, salad, main course, dessert, and coffee/tea. Let’s look at pictures and commentary, shall we?
Foccacia bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It was warm! And fragrant.
For both starters, we ordered crab cake. I was a little apprehensive about it since it can go horribly wrong. But luckily it was quite tasty! Not like the crab cakes in Maryland, but still good in its own way, very flavorful.
For our salad we got tomato and mozzarella. I love mozzarella and you can’t really go wrong, but something tasted a bit different here. Not in a bad way, but I think it was the tomato, a little too crunchy.
They provided different types of salts and mustards to go with your steak, but I didn’t really use any. The steak was already very good on it’s own. My sister did try it with the mustards, and I think she quite enjoyed it.
My steak! There was some foie gras on the top that doesn’t really show in this picture. The meat was medium rare and quite perfect. The white border is actually mashed potatoes. It all came together very well. Nom nom nom.
The name of the desserts elude me because we just ordered the two that had stars next to them and were not ice cream. This one tastes like hazelnut and is creamy. I liked it but I don’t think the sister did.
So that was the meal. It was pretty perfect in amount, tending towards a little bit too much. But it was a very satisfying and enjoyable meal. Once I start earning the big bucks (hahahaha. In my dreams.), I am totally going back!
