Review | The Butcher Shop & Grill

Forget about Chili's, Friday's, and even Gaucho Grill...

When was the last time you had a decent piece of steak that made you drool with every chunk you eat? If you're eager to have that feeling again then look nowhere else, The Butcher Shop & Grill is the place to go.

They opened up recently in The Avenues mall (phase II) at restaurants corner. Their service is nice and their waiters are very polite and extremely joyful.

Their menu is steak-oriented but it's not limited to steaks, they have seafood and some other dishes though I doubt being there for anything other than their steaks. As mentioned, they are new in Kuwait and they still don't have all the kinds of beef listed on their menu but still their current set is good nonetheless.

Personally I hate fat and their only none-fat steak (fillet) was not available so I went with a piece of well pepper-cooked rump and asked them to trim out the fat, and my friend got a fine plate of ribs. About 15 minutes later the steaks arrived. From the first piece I ate I knew for good that this is something else, I was smothered with delight! I never wanted to end chewing that piece. It was by far the best steak I have ever had in my whole life and gladly I enjoyed every piece of it.

The food is well priced compared to Gaucho Grill (or relatively overpriced compared to Chili's & Friday's) but for that quality beef, it is all worth it. And with all that perfection I almost failed to notice the only downside of the restaurant which is its not-so-calm environment (being in the open between all other restaurants) but I guess it's not a big deal if you're there for the food.

Sorry Gaucho Grill but your SunBursts will have to be reserved for later.

I hated it, the food came cold, the steaks were just too cold, they said hot plate hot plate and it wasn't... not only me, but my uncle in law said the same...

Gaucho Grill is still the best for me :s

Me7sin said...

gaucho all the way, not for just the taste but the sheer size of their fillet never fails to satisfy ;P

but I'll give this a try though, been looking forward to it actually

Do you know who the owners are?

Hope you like it.

No problem, hope you like it.

I guess you and your uncle were unlucky. My steak was served hot and brilliantly cooked. :\

Gaucho is great but to me this one's is better, although they need a better place. You can order larger sizes too. :)

seattle dude:
LOL! Ok man just don't hold that against me. Try it at your own risk. :P

You're saying that but deep inside you're craving it. ADMIT IT! :D

Yeah I think this one's the first. :P

I have no idea. Why? :\

I'm not a fan of dine-out steaks but your review night change my mind!

Now don't tell me you're promoting it for free! This is plain advertisement :P

Steak is my indulgence, your review stirred my fascinations and I'm already drooling.

I've already thought that Gaucho Grill makes the second best steak I've ever had and I've never cared to bother to put it to the test and check out the competition. Well this review has set me on restless mode till I'm fed with a juicy tender fillet steak, only drawback that it is at the avenues.

Mathai said...

oh man you've really made me want that steak ! hope its as good as your description :P

MacaholiQ8 said...

What's your number one steak then? Would love to try it if it's available out here. :)

I sure hope so too otherwise some people would kill me if it's not! :P

Samara said...

Glad you like the butcher shop.
