The Best Steak in Town

Full Goodmans Meal

Full Goodmans Meal


My favorite food is steak. My favorite drink is Whiskey. Being from the United States, I believe that I am born with a natural ability to assess the true quality, taste, value, etc of a hunk of meat specifically butchered for my culinary enjoyment. Being 25% Irish makes me convince myself that I have an innate ability to seek out the best Whiskeys. However, the UK has proved to be a different world altogether for steak and Whiskey. In terms of steak, the names of the cuts are sometimes different and the selection is not typically as wide ranging it would seem. Whiskey, though choices are abundant…Jack Daniels seems to be considered top shelf (quite an upgrade for the Tennessee Bourbon). Bri and I went to Goodman Steakhouse on Canary Wharf for a celebratory dinner. Goodman had a remarkable selection and very well trained staff. They provided a full listing of all cuts available, both US and UK bread meat, including specifics around the differences for each. I was truly impressed. I went with the 1200 Gram bone in ribeye. This, my friends, was one hefty piece of meat. Though incredibly thick, it was prepared perfectly medium rare. It took me a while to finish, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I must admit though, that it was rather pricey at £90. I loved the quality, the taste, the size…but good lord that was an expensive dinner. The Whiskey selection was respectable and manageable. Unlike other places that have 300+ types of whiskey, Goodman provided a wide enough array without being overwhelming. Between the Talisker,Red Breast, and Highland Park whiskey and scotch buffet…Red Breast best complimented the meal in my view.
