I was so excited to meet my husband at Ash & Elm at Intercontinental Hotel, because it was date night! Yes, on a weekday!
We were ushered to our seats, and by the way, the tables were really big. When sitting across from him, he seemed so far away!
The ambiance in the restaurant was amazing. Large comfy seats, quiet ambiance, really high ceiling… it was beautiful and perfect for two.
I ordered Tenderloin ($58), which was just 200 grams, and I had it at medium rare. I was so drawn to it because it says “grass-fed”, and I knew for sure it would be something.
When it came on this huge steakboard I knew we were on to something. I cut the steak.., I ate a tiny slice, and I was in heaven! It was so juicy and unbelievable tender! It almost felt like you could swallow it. It was amazing. I believe it’s the best I ever had.
We also ordered Truffle Mashed Potatoes, which was absolutely divine. It’s $18, and I can see why. The truffle was certainly there, and I told my husband that he has to definitely learn this recipe and make it for me!
By the way, for the steak sauce, you can choose:
1) Lyonnaise Butter
2) Pepper Corn
3) Natural Juice.
For me pepper was pretty normal, and so we picked Natural Juice and Lyonnaise Butter. Natural Juice turned out to be pretty ‘meaty’ in taste, which my husband loved. I preferred Lyonnaise Butter, which was melted butter with some chopped green stuff in it… maybe rosemary or thyme. Loved the experience and service so much.
Will save up and will be back!
