I'm back from my grad trip! It's been an amazing three weeks filled with too many fish, chips and oysters to count - now I'm all ready to get back to my usual posting frequencies. A big thank you for sticking around! This... was how I celebrated the end of my last finals, before rushing full throttle to the airport immediately after (only possible thanks to my amazing dad) - a huge, huge slab of steak all to myself, all the time clinking glasses with a fantastic bunch of friends. This is the life, isn't it?

We had the Burgundy Escargots with Garlic Butter ($18) for starters too. There were nine of them, all drowned in sinful butter, playing tango to the aromas of garlic and parsley. Go for it, I say, it's completely delicious. I wonder where my photo of the escargots went? The comprehensive array of condiments included horse radish, bearnaise, mayonnaise, mustard and dijon mustard. The salad was alright, just refreshing enough to help you through the steak.

How amazing does the steak look? I had to take a few seconds to admire the beautifully seared rib eye and almost couldn't bear to tuck in, just absent-mindedly munching on the fries, which happened to be piping hot and incredibly delicious. Did I mention that the fries are free flow? Not that I can name many with sufficient appetite to polish the whole plate off and still have room for second helpings. At $36.80, the superbly delicious and juicy steak really delivered. It was pretty tender as well, though it definitely needs some jaw work. That's okay. Nibble on the fries, sip some wine, and help yourself to the salad while your jaws take some well deserved rest. I'm not gonna lie, it took me a long time, but finally I conquered it all. Well, almost. Steak and fries, steak and fries. Whoever came up with this idea, thank you.
