Off Topic

I hate when a restaurant tries to convince me a large size cut of beef is 8 ounces. I want to see at least the number 2 before any large size cut.

I hate thise places where they wheel the meat cart out and you pick steak to be cooked. Keep that shit inna kitchen yo.

I hate when restaurants change the sizes making the old medium the new large, the old small the new medium and charging you the same price. That happened at my favorite cupcake spot, now I get less cupcake for what I paid for before.

I think they did the opposite at Arby's @Marriott.. I ordered my daughter a medium Sierra Mist and it was 32 flippin ounces!

I hate it when restaurants make a normal order more than I can possibly eat, particularly when I'm going to an event afterwards and can't take it along in a doggie bag. Made the mistake of taking leftover chili-garlic shrimp along to the ballet once. I wasn't very popular with my fellow balletgoers.

Sizing is wonky everywhere anymore. Remember back in the Eighties and before how a size 10 would be considered a size 4 or 6 now?

When I order a filet, don't bring it out with that little end piece barely attached. That does not qualify towards the 8 oz I'm paying for, it's scrap. Use it for your French onion soup or in your veal reduction but don't say it's part if my steak. It ain't.

Yeah I don't like to do anything that feels like work when I'm paying for a meal.
That includes assembling my own fajitas. Hahahaha

I remember a steak house in Florida, I ordered the filet because it was the smallest size and it was still something like 10 oz. I wouldn't have guessed that steaks being too tiny would ever be a problem.

If you want a big steak -- go to Cattleman's Steak House and get The Cowboy.

I hate that the restaurant I went to this weekend had the Glee Christmas CD playing while we were eating. That's right. I had to hear Naya Rivera sing "Santa baby" during my meal.

One of the coolest Steakhouses I dined in was the Library 2. Go to the window and order your meat. You want fillet mignon, they have a per ounce price and a 1lb special. Dude cuts it in front of you, sticks a flag in it how you want it cooked and asks "baked potato or fries", then you head off to the salad bar.

I think it was in Mt. Laurel, but they have another outside of AC I want to go to next time I'm down there for a weekend.

They have a library( or used to) in EHT wider if it's te same? Great steak but no meat counter..

Count Jerkula said...

JennaBean: that is the one I meant for outside of AC. I think that one is the Library 3.

Montana, now that is some serious shit!! Lol

Leo said...

She'll probably be there singing live after glees over

Jason Blue Eyes said...

If Naya is going to sing "Santa baby" she should be doing it for me in person.

There is a crab place in Philly (won't mention the name) that does this. Medium becomes large, small becomes medium. It's quite disappointing. The best bet is to get there as early as possible to ensure the best crabs.

An 8oz steak is an absolutely standard cut of meat in the civilised world. It's what humans and Europeans eat.

I've seen Man vs. Food so understand why it's a bit confusing to Yanks and their blimp offspring.

Count Jerkula said...

8oz for a fillet. Any other kind of steak that is tiny.

Went to Bob's steak and chophouse in San Antonio TX recently, had a 22 oz Ribeye "Cote de boeuf". It was $57, but worth it
