Food Safari Night at Brookfield Plaza
We were looked after by this lovely young waiter from Roma who was just absolutely sweet with a cute accent and was courteous and friendly. In fact, I don’t think I have had bad service at Trustee at all. Props to that.
We opted for one main dish to share between the two of us (really we could have shared this with two other girls!.. or with our other halves..), the chateaubriand for two, which was just amazing dish consisting of 600g of medium-rare, tenderloin, accompanied by sautéed bourguignon mushrooms, beautiful pear and walnut salad, refreshing small serve of celeraic salad (to cleanse the palate no doubt!), fat chips, bernaise and some fried bread-like thing. Of course all of this had to be paired with a glass of red. Seeing as one of us had to drive we decided against a bottle and their extensive list of wines had our heads spinning.
I’m not a huge fan of bone marrow, mainly because I barely have it in my diet, M loved it though. The fat chips were crispy and in small quantity as to not divert your stomach from the meat. The tenderloin was pink, tender, juicy and well rested. The bearnaise wasn’t necessary as the meat was juicy enough, but it was delicious and rich. The bourguignon mushrooms were so lovely with a beautiful smokey scent and flavour with small chunks of smoked ham buried amongst them like hidden treasure. The pear salad and the celeriac salad were crisp and fresh and helped balanced out the meal (and somewhat palate cleansing).
The dish was huge. I barely finished my share. M fared better. Pity we so much of salads and mushrooms behind because they were lovely accompaniments. After consuming it, and having some what of a meat coma, we decided it could comfortably serve two very hungry people with large appetites or could fill bf and me/her and her bf, but if it was all four of us, we may have to order something else as we all seem to have a good appetite.
You can imagine after this we didn’t have room for dessert. Instead we sat there talking about all things grown-up. ARGH going to be on the wrong side of the 20s this year is so depressing. But that in itself is another post. But hey, nothing is more romantic than dining over candlelight and whinging about how close we are to our 10 year high school reunion with your bff.
Until then, any ideas where can we go next for our revolving dinner and food safari?
