Hong Kong: The Steakhouse at the Grand Hyatt

Now, a Canadian chef serving Canadian beef, what more could we possibly ask for?
Call us beef-snobs but, in Hong Kong, most of the beef is from the mainland (argh...) or from Australia... and we ain't liking' it.
The Steakhouse is pricey. For the two of us, that was HKD $1936. Skip the wine if you want to save a bit as the premium on it is outrageous (HKD $290 for 2 glasses of red). The steak you can share because in typical steakhouse-fashion, the portions are too big for one person.
What impressed me most actually and surprisingly is not the beef (it is good but that was expected) as much as the rest; appetizers and deserts were really, really good.

Tuna tartare. The addition of a layer of avocado is a great idea and tasted amazing. One of the best rendition of tuna tartare I had. HKD $210

Crab cakes. Mostly crab, very little filler. Very good. Second only to the ones we had in Baltimore. I think I shed a tear. HKD $280

The 20oz Canadian strip loin. Pretty good lookin' eh?
Good to share. By the way, you know a strip is fatter than filet mignon, and that's why it is tastier? That's why we almost never go for filet mignon.
HKD $560

Some sides. Asparagus and creamed spinach ($95 + $80)

Black Forest Sundae. Heaven in your mouth,  kilos on the scale. $85

Velvety rich Mud Pie with silky smooth ice cream. Compliments to the dessert chef.
