Dinner was at Brisbane's Worst Vegetarian Restaurant
Norman Hotel
102 Ipswich Road

Took our order and waited patiently
for the beeper to go off

Rib Fillet (Small)
100 day, Grain Fed, Angus Hereford Cross, Southern Darling Downs, QLD
Choice of Mushroom, Chilli or Pepper Sauce
Served with Garden Salad, Idaho Potato with Bacon Sauce and Bread Roll
The steak is MIND-BLOWING! No joke!
Its perfectly grilled, flavors and juices sealed, marblings charred
One of the best steaks I've ever eaten
Potato was also awesome with REAL bacon bits
Despite the missing salad dressing,
it was drained (not dripping wet) and arugula was fresh

Worth every single cent spent!

Return Factor:

After-dinner coffee was at Denim Co. Espresso : Fashion
Shop 9A, Little Stanley Street
South Bank

The signature beverage - Hot Chocolate
Choice of Milk/White/Dark Chocolate shavings
Add your own steamed milk
Very interactive, very tasty!

Perfect shot with well-steamed milk
No complaint!

Everyone had a happy ending..
