THIS.

My friend use to date this broad who would always order a medium rare steak but then send it back because the juices were still pink. I'd tell her to order medium/medium well instead but she would always insist that wasn't supposed to be the cook of medium rare

speaking of steak houses, planning to take my girl there because shes a big fan of steak. Debating either Hy's or Black and blue. A major thing I love about steakhouses is that caesar salads are made tableside and I friggin love caesars! Have anyone here tasted both Hy's and Blue's caesar salad?Checkd prices, both are around the same

LOL table side caesars. Is there something that tastes better about 1994?
I'd avoid black and blue. A lot of money and I've never heard someone have a good experience there. Hy's, while an old school experience, they do it well.

Keg Alberni 8/10

Called ahead for them to save me a 24oz prime rib since it was late and no problem at all.
SO's sirloin was a bit overcooked on the side. Medium rare probably was closer to medium. Otherwise no complaints besides slow service

Steak Tartare - 3/10
Way over-seasoned with worcheshire sauce and tabasco, no balance at all.

Porterhouse - 6/10
Very flavorful and fatty, but was a good medium/medium-well when it was asked to be done at medium rare.
Not being in a clear state of mind and still making a rating....lol

I also heard keg can call it double baked because they're baked in a plant, flash frozen, then baked again on site lol

I can't comment on how it's prepared, but essentially it is mash potatoes with baked potato fixings thrown back into the potato skin. You could throw the onion straws and jus on top of that too.

No lineups when I went.

Don't know. Go ask them yourself.

Speaking of poke...

Pokerrito 7.5/10
Tiny, unmarinated fish, decently sized rice bowl. Don't ever get the burrito, less rice, less toppings, less everything. Doesn't fill up. I'd rate it higher if the people that worked there understood English and weren't derpy af.

Poke Guy 7.5/10
Big marinaded chunks of fish, tiny scoop of rice. $17 for a 3 scoop of fish. Doesn't fill me up at at all. Took points out for value. Wish they had an option to add rice, or just give me more.
