11 Aug Rare Steakhouse, Melbourne CBD
I happened across a flash special on Dimmi for lunch and early dinner seatings – at 50% off, no holdung back! I had the 4-6 marble score wagyu eye fillet with baked potato and sour cream, adding on black pepper sauce (the sauce was extra). The steak was well seasoned and probably didn’t need the sauce. This was probably because of the Steakmate Baste they use The sauce did go nicely with the potato though; it needed a bit more flavour. The grass-fed Mayura wagyu was flavoursome.
I was seated next to the window and the contrast between the yellow lighting from inside and the white street lamp from outside made it hard to tell exactly how the meat was cooked. I guessed by the texture and relative darkness of the beef that it was more like rare. The kitchen was happy to put it on the heat a bit longer. It was much better when I got it back (along with a new potato and re-seasoning). The wagyu was certainly more flavoursome than regular beef, but it wasn’t quite as amazing as I thought it’s be.
Despite the hiccup the staff were attentive and lovely.
