Great Steak Festival at Geoffrey’s

December is a month of festivities and celebrations... No celebrations are complete without food and drinks... Was invited to the Great Steak Festival at Geoffrey’s,which has been from 02nd Dec’ 2011 and continues till 18th Dec’ 2011 at Select City Walk, Saket and Noida.

Geoffrey’s is a typical hangout place for us, being regulars at Noida(as that's where I use to work), we visited Select City Walk for a change. The menu had Chicken Cordon Bleu, Hawaiian Chicken Steak, Grilled Pork Chops, Lamb Medallions, Pan-grilled Red Snapper Fillet, Norwegian Salmon Steak, and Tenderloin. We wanted to sample all the steaks but the portions were huge so we requested the chef if he could give us smaller portions, to which they readily agreed.

While waiting for the food to arrive, we chatted up and had loads of catching up to do since we had all been busy with work and life in general. Hawaiian Chicken Steak arrived the first... pineapple and chicken are a favourite combination with me and when cooked well, makes me smile :) The sides of hash brown, tomatoes and vegetables was a nice combination.

The Pan Grilled Pork Chops on the menu are grilled to perfection, were succulent and tender. The mustard sauce blended in really well with the meat. Along with this the butter glazed potatoes and tossed vegetables were a delight. In my defense for eating all these carbs... winters is a good time to stock up on energy *Wicked Grin :)*

The Lamb Medallions grilled to perfection with its dark red color are a treat for the eye and so is the taste. Perfectly seared, served with parmesan mashed potatoes, butter sauté vegetables, topped with rosemary.

The peppered Sole steak had the wonderful flavouring of black pepper, lime n garlic. This steak had accompanying sumac potatoes, tomatoes and buttered vegetables. Would personally have preferred the fish to not be cooked for long as it reduces the flavour.

For dessert we indulged in a wonderful chocolate cake served warm with icecream and chocolate sauce.... This was such a perfect end to a wonderful afternoon. Small note on pricing, the steaks start from Rs.455/- onwards and are quite reasonable for the quantity we observed for guests who ordered full portions.

The 3 of us had such a wonderful time thanks to the folks at Geoffrey’s and the folks at Impact PR.
