Meal Made For A King

This dish may not look all that but  it was actually pretty good for a simple looking dish.  This dish was the onglet aux echalotes, a pepper crusted steak served with cognac sauce and mashed potatoes. The steak was extremely tender, so much so that you can use a fork  to cut through it. The sauce that was glazed over the steak was  delicious which I can’t really describe it. The mashed potatoes was also a surprising experience, as it was very fluffy, no clumps, and tasted like it was home-made. Though the portion size was average, it was defiantly a meal for a king, or queen!  I must mention  that the outside and location of this fine restaurant  should have been in a  fancier area like Santana Row. Even the inside was a bit plain for their high quality food. It would be like eating  high-class food at Macdonald’s  ( bit exaggeration but you know what I mean). All in all,   this dish was excellent. YUMM!
