Sounds good - will happily give it a try when next in the area.
Key question is: where did the steak come from? Hopefully none of that UK / Euro / Scottish sh1te. If you want decent beef, come over here to Lat Am where they REALLY know what beef is all about. Brahman crossed with Aberdeen Angus, for the farmers among you.
Oh, and I bought a full tank of petrol yesterday and got change fromn a dollar - not bad at around 1p a litre...
HK, trust me on this one. I scoffed double my body weight and it was ace. I have the postcode if you want it.

The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe!
Flat Bread Cafe, Metro Center
Worth nipping in, when you are out for a shop with the family.
Does that mean you weigh 21lbs??
For those who are aficionado's for Fish and Seafood. I reccomend The Crab at Chieveley
It's an unlikely setting for a fish restaurant, set just off the Ridgeway in West Berkshire near Newbury, but it's absolutely superb. It's not pretentious either although it does have high standards but they're not up-themselves about it.
Also it's a B&B which looks OK, however I never stayed but I wished I had.

"Madam Fromage" Castle Arcade Cardiff, its a cheese shop and restaurant, a great place for a plate of mixed chesse and olives with a nice bottlle of red,
"The North Star" North Road Cardiff a pub with very good Italian food and specials Menu 2-4-1 meals untill 6pm
"0 degrees" Westgate street cardiff Real Ale brewary with piza to die for
And my local "The Old Arcade with great beer and pubgrub
I visited Rancho's food was good. Could get a blue steak without signing a disclaimer!! Service was a bit slow but they were busy. I would recommend Myalacarte in Reading.
Apparently Heston BloomingHec's ristorante The Plump Breasted Pigeon (or similar) 'is too die for' after poisoning c. 500 guests; sewage in the oysters I think - fine dining!
Here's one for those around the Cambridge area.
The C0ck at Hemingford
It's just won a national prize as well.
Do they call you Bullet?
no they call me Jim just like everyone else
The French Horn just outside Pewsey. Run by a couple of Aussies. Menu includes wild boar, ostrich and kangaroo among the ususal suspects. A bit expensive but the steak is nice and rare and mahoosive!
My favourite local place is The Boot at Shipton Bellinger. Amazing selection of food.
Posh restaurants - Gordon Ramsays gaff at the top of the Hilton Hotel in Dubai. Think its called the Verve.
I concur with this recommendation!
Outstanding sausage and mash!
Dear god man! Here, let me help you: Brasserie Black Door
Brasserie Black Door is far and away the best restaurant in the North East.
Firenze, recently opened in Jesmond is excellent too.
Why do you have to be called Jim to go there? Must have a small client base.
The Mayfly at Stockbridge, Hants!! Right on a gorgeous trout river, food is AMAZING!!
Mumtaz, Indian, Bradford, absolutely amazing grub, no ale served but your in Bradford so you should be morose enough after an hour..
In my student days lived right next door . . . .quality!
Belly Busters, North Camp, Aldershot. The food to be honest is mediocre in the extreme but the entertainment when a naked paratrooper wanders in and throws hot soup into the owner face is an event to behold.
Joe Dalfo's in Southampton.
Italian in a converted church just across the road from the theatre.
Best fish cakes I've had the pleasure of tasting, my dining companions had bruscetta and anti pasti misto, plent of both. Main courses of a light pesto and chicken pasta, swordfish and a sirtloin steak with olives and salad. Desserts of Creme Brule and Carrot Cake, washed down with a Montopole champagne, a frisky pinot grigio coffees and g&ts came to Â£110. Great setting and swift service. Easily best meal in months
F*ck me Tarquin !! I could have fed half the troop on that !!
Dont go here http://www.alisalathairestaurant.co.uk/ if you want change from a ton for a meal for 2, I wrote my friends name in my own sh*t with my fingers on the toilet wall in defiance
Feck me, M_L_P, its a food outlet in the Metro Centre - it was never going to be haute cuisine. Its a place where you can relax with the wife & kids and have a decent bit of scran for a reasonable price on a Saturday afternoon.
Fair one, it's actually pretty good.
If you like a decent Curry and are in Edinburgh you must try this place. It is styled as a Mess at the time of the Raj and the food is to die for. We always pre book it if over for the Rugby in Jockland. I think it is the best Indian in the UK. Everybody who I recommended this Restaurant has said said it is superb and they had lovely food. Far better than any Indian I have been to in London.
If in Dub try this place. Best Indian in Ireland.
In Belfast there is a cracking Curry House on the Ormeau Road. Bengal Brasserie which is just about to open a 2nd Restaurant on the Lisburn Road on 5th November.
Little Plates, Limassol, Cyprus. Can't even compare it to any other place...Some of the things the owner/chef prepares, honey covered puff pastry feta cheese parcels for instance are unbelieveable...
Never tried the food too busy feeding the trout with crisps - a cracking pub for a summers evening!!!!
Except they have now put so many tables outside the whole of bloody Hampshire goes to visit.
