Thanksgiving turkey dinner… @ STK steakhouse???

Now, I don’t always celebrate Thanksgiving — I’m thankful for bacon every day, bro! But when I heard that STK, this fancy steakhouse in Yorkville, was serving up turkey and all the trimmings, I figured I would come and check it out:

Now, they actually sous-vide the turkey, so it comes out nice and tender, with three equally sized slices. Then they smother it in gravy, with some green beans, mashed potaters, stuffing and a sweet potato puree. This was all pretty tasty, even though it only took up like a quarter of the plate — at my place, that plate is always full, bro!!!

While I stuck to beer the last time I was here, this joint does have some pretty funky cocktails (and also a pretty boring beer list). This here’s the Strawberry Cobbler, a festive special in Flavourtown with Belvedere vodka, muddled strawberries and a Graham cracker crust. It tastes kinda like a strawberry daiquiri, but with more cookies!!!

Of course, it’s safe to say that after such small servings, I’ve still got room for dessert. We’re talking apple pie, pumpkin pie, sticky toffee pudding and a whole bagga mini donuts… Good thing I wear stretchy pants every day of the week!!!

 

Steakin’ and bacon @ STK (Winterlicious 2019)

Now, I only made it out to one funky joint for Winterlicious this year, cuz I was somewhere on a beach, Dierks Bro-ntly! But I figured if I was only gonna do one place for Winterlicious, it was gonna be this funky steakhouse right in the heart of Yorkville. We’re gettin’ some, gettin’ some at STK, son!

Now, when I heard this joint was serving up double-smoked Applewood bacon as an appetizer, you KNOW I was all over that like fat on pork, bro! This steak-sized piece of back bacon totally reeks of unctuousness, with a balsamic BBQ sauce, holy shiitake shrooms and some red hot chili peppers, for that extra kick. Give it away, give it away, give it away now!!!!

Of course, we’re still saving room for the main event. This 8 oz strip was definitely on the well-done side of medium rare, but it still had some nice juices, with mashed potatoes, black trumpet mushrooms, and onions two ways–agrodolce and crispy-fried. Dude, this is body by agrodolce, bro!!!

Now, this chocolate brownie was pretty outta bounds. You’ve got rich, moist chocolate, dulce de leche ice cream, dehydrated raspberries and a maple bourbon sauce??? Shut the front, back and side doors, son!!!!
