    Best steaks for me are what I make for myself. But that's just because I like them blood rare that even a novice can make them. Just add salt and pepper and slap it on a very hot pan or grill for a couple of seconds. Nothing too it for extra rare. With home made you can pour your money on quality meat and no need to pay for an expensive chef

    Thanks guys! This day has been an unbelievable experience, I'm still so thankful to God for the blessings.

    The best way to celebrate it? With a wonderful Super Prime from Elbert's! Man, that is what you call a steak experience. It's not a meal, it's a moment.




    And the icing on the cake had to be this. I guess it was thru this thread, because in my excitement to get a table for tonight, I didn't mention to the person I talked with on the phone, what had just happened. Seriously, this was a very, very touching gesture Sir Elbert, and I am very, very grateful.




    Today was an awesome day, I got to spend with my wife and parents (whom I let off their non-fat, non-salty for a meal) The search for the best steak ended here.

    Hi Doc Jay, it was our honor that you came to the Steak Room to celebrate. I have always believed that a steak is a celebration, that's why we do what we do in the way we do it.

    Let me assure you though that you weren't treated any differently from the rest of my customers, except for the cake that is. hehe.

    Cheers! Glad you came and enjoyed!

    Up on this, have visited Elberts Steakroom discretely a number of times , never said or mentioned I knew Elbert but got always gotten excellent service nonetheless , still stand on saying it one of the best steak house I have been in the world.

    Oh yes, I wouldn't find that hard to believe After reading through the 60+ pages of this thread, and having yet to try it before last night, the numerous thanks I've seen people give you and your establishment, was enough for me to recommend Steak Room to a lot of people already. It's a really awesome place, Elbert! I just have to find another reason to celebrate soon!

It'll be my first time there, and I think its the best place for me to celebrate this momentous occasion I can't wait!!!

    Congrats!! We were in the same batch of interns at CSMC. If I recall correctly I bought an iPod you were selling several years ago.

    Steaks..the best one I had was in a small town in Texas called Lubbock..Double Nickel. Had the filet mignon. Antonio's back home was alright.

    I must agree! This "tradition" takes me back to the 80's, when my Dad and Mom would bring me over to Alfredo's or Mario's on Tomas Morato, when I'd get honors in grade school. I recall the sizzling plate, the pouring of the gravy, and the thin steaks with burnt vegetables. I have different tastes now in steaks, I like 'em thick and medium, without any sauce, caveman style. But I do drop by those sizzling plate restos every once in a while, not for the steak itself, but just to stroll down memory lane. I leave the place wearing a smile

    Ah yes, Christine! Haha, I remember that iPod, white pa, with the click wheel, 2nd Gen, I think. I bet those steaks in Texas are awesome, southerners know their steaks pretty well. Haven't been to Texas though, I've tried steaks in San Francisco, LA, and New York, it must be a must try to travel through Texas.

    3 years ago, 2 friends of mine picked up an article of the 10 best burgers in America. They flew to New York, got a rental, and actually drove cross country, all the way to San Francisco in 7 days, stopping by 7 of those restos for burgers. Ah, to be single, free, and moneyed. How I wish I can do that for the Top 10 steaks of America. (Well not the single part, and it might not be a good idea for my heart, to eat 7 huge steaks in 7 days, hehe!

    mm.....you forgot the to mention Mario's super Caesar's salad (Baguio-fresh iceberg lettuce, olive oil, bacon bits, crisp croutons, egg yolk, lemon, Lea and Perrin's, parmesan, and anchovies) freshly made right before your eyes. My family also had the same tradition: right after Sunday mass, we'd troop to either Mario's or Alfredo's. If I remember it correctly, the price of the steak was less than P250.00 - with dinner roll, soup and veggies na .
