$400 steak dinner (in person) @ Jacobs & Co.

Back in the middle of the first lockdown, in 2020, one of the highlights of my life was when I ordered a $200 steak dinner and saved $50 on Uber Eats from Jacobs and Co, this fancy steakhouse just offa King Street West. And lemme tell ya bro, that was one of the best steak dinners I’ve ever had!!!

Well, now that things are pretty much back to normal, we’re heading over to Jacobs in person for the first time. And let’s just say I wish I was getting 25% off… cuz we’re blowin’ high dough, bro!!!!!!

When we went to Hy’s Steakhouse last year, we got the Caesar salad served tableside. And when I heard that Jacobs was doing the same thing, you KNOW I gotta get it.

Dude, this salad is enough to feed a family of four, bro! There’s a whole buncha crunchy croutons, nice big chunks of real bacon, and they even put a couple anchovies on top, to make this a balanced breakfast in Flavourtown!

We’re pairing that with beef tartare, served raw and chewy with some lettuce and crostini. Gotta love a place where you can get beef as an appetizer AND the main course, bro!!!!

Speaking of the main course, we’ve got 14 ounces of U.S. Wagyu ribeye steak, cooked to a nice medium rare. This steak is so money that even the chunks of fat taste good, bro! And when you put a bit of that blue cheese butter on top, it just kicks it up another notch…

On the side, we’ve got a creamy, cheesy potato gratin paired with a sticky mushroom risotto. Not quite as tasty as the sautéed mushrooms from my takeout order, but we’ll still take it…

Now, while the wine list is literally 90 pages, Jacobs has only got 4 beers to choose from — Asahi, Inniss & Gunn, Leffe Brune and a Vermont Blond session IPA from Burdock. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out which one I went for. This Blond is nice ‘n hoppy, but super-crushable at 4.4%. Let’s just say I had at least 3 of these — still a lot cheaper than a bottle of wine, though!!!

jacobs_chocolate_cake (3)

Not gonna lie, I was getting pretty, pretty full at this point. But you KNOW I can’t not eat chocolate cake, bro! This flourless chocolate cake comes with mint chocolate chip ice cream and a chocolate chip cookie on top — it’s like a chocolatey three-way in Flavourtown!

Now, as you might imagine, this mighty, mighty feast did not come cheap — the steak alone cost me $250! And after tax and tip, we’re looking at $400-plus…but I gotta say, it was money well spent. Dude, I’ll take a great steak over the tasting menu at Don Alfonso any day of the week, and twice on Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!
