Too much of a good thing? I think not. Quite honestly though “too much of a good thing” was the first thing that ran through my mind when the waiter set this amazing steak in front of me at MIX in Las Vegas. Could I have possibly met my match when it comes to indulgent foods? Wasting no time at all, I reached for the knife and a fork and began to dig in.
If you staring at the picture thinking “what exactly is on that steak?”, let me fill you in exactly as the menu described it:
FILET MIGNON ROSSINI
foie gras & black truffle
Simple, to the point and quite honestly one of the best steaks have ever had in my life. But… was it the steak that was so great, or the overabundance of expensive and crazily decadent flavors that accompanied it? Don’t get me wrong, the steak was cooked perfectly and tasted quite delicious. However with every bite along came a delicious melting morsel of seared foie gras and black truffle. The amount of black truffle on top almost made me blush.
This one simple dish combined my three favorite ingredients in the world and melded them all perfectly together. Three top of the line ingredients piled together, one after the other to create an experience like no other. I was in heaven while eating this dish.
There’s a lot of things you can do with in Las Vegas. I choose to use my time eating. Sure it does get over commercialized and the celebrity chefs who lend their names to the dining establishments rarely ever set foot in their kitchens. But that doesn’t mean you can’t experience a world-class meal prepared by chef who may very well one day be one of those celebrity chefs lending their names to their own restaurants scattered across the world.
So if you can, dive in, enjoy and experience what your credit card will allow. Break away from the buffet line and you may just find a hidden gem such as this sitting high atop Mandalay Bay with a stunning view and one of the best steaks in the world.
