Earle Swensen's - Charbroiled Steak!

I had planned for Ric to enjoy his steak while i indulged in the all-you-can-eat-salad-bar at Earle Swensens today; had never like beef a lot. But frankly, i am very much missing their charbroiled steak now - it is flavorsome, juicy and sweet - probably one of my best steak memory!

For as long as i could remember, i like the taste of beef but usually dread finishing the entire steak on my own. But today is different; the intimidating large portion of the T-bone was devoured by me.

Salad Bar (free-flow salad with all Mains)

The salad bar was splendid as well. It was obviously priced to the Mains, but it was good. It even includes fresh fruits of watermelon and grapes. 

I enjoyed the good selection of compound salads like the Turkey Ham & Cheese, Fruity Macaroni, Spicy Squid, Crab-stick Louis and BBQ Chicken Sausages! While Ric preferred healthier fresh greens with olives, corns, cherry tomatoes, beans, onion and button mushrooms to go with his choice of Earle's dressings.

As if these were not enough, a small table serves crispy fried wanton skin, potato chips and cheese crackers with dipping sauce of rich cheese and tangy mango!

Charbroiled Black Angus Ribeye Steak, medium rare ($35.90++)
New Zealand Black Angus grass-fed ribeye is renowned for its tender but full-bodied, rich flavor. 
Grilled to perfection, this generously sized prime cut of meat has the right amount of marbling of fat to make each bite a melt-in-the-mouth 
experience that is simply sublime! Accompanied with fresh seasonal vegetables and potatoes to complete the gastronomical experience.

This was our first experience with superior Black Angus steak; and i thought it flavorsome and tender! But Ric felt the steak could have been better executed by the seemingly fumbling kitchen staffs (we could look into their open kitchen from where we were seated). 

I just wished their plating could be more professionally done. Most importantly, to serve a baked potato of Jack's standard; else it's just far from being perfect.

Charbroiled T-Bone Steak, medium rare ($36.90++)
This large steak's unique quality is that it contains meat from two of the most prized cuts of beef - the short loin and the tenderloin. 
Meaty with great texture, this steak is a favorite for any backyard grill.
