RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK
A PERSONAL REVIEW OF RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD

STEAK HOUSE BAR & GRILL
KONG KONG, KOWLOON, CHINA

Okay, you're an American in Hong Kong with some of the most exotic dining possibilities on earth.  Why, then, would you want to dine at an American style steak house? And at a hotel no less?!

Well my wife and I checked out our hotel thoroughly upon arrival in Hong Kong.  We stayed at the Regent.  It's now known as the InterContinental Hong Kong.  It's an excellent hotel, often voted as one of the best business hotels in the world and it has an absolutely mesmerizing view of Victoria Harbor.  It sits right on the harbor with nothing to obstruct the view.  So, as we checked all the restaurants out we came across this really cute little place complete with bundles of hay and cowboy decor.  The Steak House Bar & Grill.  We had been filling up on tons of Asian food on this trip and figured we'd give the place a try.

The Asian servers looked a little bit out of place with their western square dancing type attire to say the least!  But you know what?  The food was pretty good.

They had a very good salad bar.  The propaganda in the room bragged that it was the best in all of Hong Kong.  I might dispute that but it was packed with many selections.

We grazed at the salad bar and then we each had a seafood cocktail to start.  Then it was onto the star of the show.  I had a nice t-bone steak.  My wife went with a filet.  Both came out cooked just perfect--very rare--and they were cooked over a live charcoal fire.  Nice touch. Our meal came with baked potatoes and they were offered western style with practically every heart-clogging option you could think of.

Dinner with wine probably came to about $80 U.S.  Not too terribly bad for a world class meal at a fine hotel.  The same meal in Singapore would have probably dinged us at least $200.

The Steak House Bar & Grill is located on the lower level of the InterContinental Hong Kong Hotel.  If you're in H.K. and get a craving for a decent piece of beef, this is a good option to consider.
