My love for steak is well-known. Well-documented, even. Consider the steak escapes I blogged about here: Mad Mark’s in Glorietta, Mad Mark’s in BGC, Artsy Cafe and the steak spread at Marriott Cafe buffet. I even ask my relatives coming home from the States to bring home slabs of Stateside beef to be grilled here.
You can definitely consider me a carnivore. This is why I was over the moon when a credit card promo entitled me to up to 67% discount on selected steak sets at Melo’s.
And wouldn’t you know it: the stars aligned. I have officemates who are also certified steak fanatics and a Melo’s branch is right across the street from our office!
So I made a quick call to reserve our table (originally for just four but grew to seven), then we all trooped to Melo’s for lunch. We all ordered the Angus Lunch Set (regularly priced at Php1,500 but promotionally priced at only Php599; more than half off the price!).
The meal started with the bread, butter and soup. We all chose a creamy soup to go with our meal but the real star of the pre-steak lunching were those freshly-baked bread rolls! (And there we were, singing praises about bread.) We just had to request for some more. (And it’s a good thing our requests for seconds were granted).
Then came our steak plates which consisted of a thick slice of juicy and flavorful Angus beef, grilled medium-well, served with small servings of vegetables which let us savor our steaks with minimal distractions to our palates.
I heard that the promo is ongoing until end of December this year. Looks like I’ll be going back there!
