New in Better Living: STEAK - OFF GRILL

We've been hearing a good affordable steak in Aguirre Food Park BF Homes a few days ago. To our surprise it was the same steak place that opened recently here in Better Living Subdivision:

STEAK-OFF GRILL

Since last night was a full house for their soft opening, we decided to try it earlier this evening. They have three steak options that comes with rice and gravy, T-bone (P149.00), Porterhouse (P189.00), and Tenderloin (P200.00). Side dishes are Mashed Potatoes and Peppered Corn (both P30 each for a small serving). Our first choice was the tenderloin steak, unfortunately it was out of stock. We went for two orders of porterhouse medium rare with the two side dishes.


The steak is not as thick but to my surprise, it was so soft and can easily be cut with their steak knife. It was well-seasoned too. However, the gravy tasted really salty after a few dips. 



Their rice needs improvement. They serve it in a container/warmer (similar to the ones Mang Inasal uses) on the spot right after the steak is served. Sadly, the rice is not even warm, nor was it evenly cooked.

We had a some concerns with their service. While I was pouring their pitcher of water, the cover went loose and spilled most of it on our table. The server immediately responded by handing me a pack of tissue and immediately went off. We were surprised that he did not even offer his assistance to help us with the mess their faulty pitcher has made. I had to call his attention to provide us with a towel and help us clean up. Cooler heads prevail. Haha.

Just a heads up, this is an open restaurant and it gets really smoky and warm.

I do hope they improve regarding these issues. Their steak is so satisfying for a quick-fix craving.

  1. Oh no! If I'm the manager or owner of this restaurant, I would fire that waiter. Enjoyed reading your constructive criticism. Keep it coming.:)

    1. I would definitely love to come back again! :) Just hope the incidents won't happen to anyone else or the least they could do is to put some tape on that pitcher! Haha! Thank you for the comment! :) Have a good evening. :)

  2. Been there with my hubby. The food is OK for the price. However, they would have to really improve in making sure that the smoke from their grill does not enter the dining area. It is bad enough that the place is not that well ventilated ( as there is only one open area and that same area is where the grill is). My hubby who has asthma could not stop coughing and we have to dine fast because we couldn't wait to leave. They should probably get the available space beside the resto and make it as the cooking area rather than smoke-away potential customers.

    1. I agree! My boyfriend and I had the same sentiments. My eyes ached a bit due to the smoke too. I really hope they improve this. People might not come back anymore if they had the same experience.
