One evening my brother surprised me with a suggestion for dinner. We already met up for lunch and a movie the previous weekend but I certainly do not mind having another makan session with him.
In fact, my brother was hankering for steak at The Ship but that weekend we could not go there because they open at 12:00pm and our movie was at 1:00pm. I guess he was very determined to visit The Ship hence our dinner.
As usual, I prefer water but apparently, The Ship no longer serves water on the house. So I had to get a bottle of mineral water. My brother had the Chocolate Milkshake which we found to be very mild and diluted.
For our mains, we selected from the Chef's Recommendation. My brother chose the Charbroiled Sirloin Steak while I had the Charbroiled Rib Eye Steak. We both asked for our steaks to be done medium rare.
The steaks come with a bowl of salad. My brother's with Thousand Island dressing....
....and mine with French Dressing.
I must commend the server for being generous with the dressing. I hate under dressed salads.
My Charbroiled Rib Eye Steak. Quite a good portion served with broccoli, tomato, corn on the cob and baked potato.
I love the baked potato, topped with sour cream, beef bacon and spring onions.
So, did the chef get medium rare right?
Oh yes, he did!
The steak was very juicy and tender except for some parts which were quite sinewy.
Is this how you eat your corn too?
My brother's Charbroiled Sirloin Steak. I must make it a point to learn the difference between different cuts of steak. Right now, I only know how to eat.
This is my bro insulting the chef with copious amounts of chili sauce.
He can't help it. He loves chili sauce.
What's a nice dinner without dessert? We shared a Brownie which was dense and gooey and chocolaty, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Bliss!
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the steaks because the last few times I was there, the steaks weren't outstanding. In fact I even thought that The Ship had lost its luster. We'll be back for sure and hopefully the steaks stay that way.
