STK, the international contemporary steak restaurant famous for its vibe dining, killer cocktails and delicious American cuisine invited House of Coco down to their restaurant on The Strand to celebrate National Burger Day.

The moment you walk into the restaurant you are enveloped in the buzz and atmosphere, a large bar sits prominently across the restaurant floor, surrounded by round booths.The sleek décor is minimal and low-level violet neon lighting makes the place feel more like a nightclub than restaurant.With the resident DJ pumping out tunes it feels like a Saturday night, despite it being midweek.

As you would imagine, the menu focusses on serving the finest USDA prime beef, however there are other options including a raw bar, seafood, lamb and chicken dishes. As it was National Burger Day, I had to try their renowned Lil’ Brgs.These beef sliders are a great starter, mini patties of succulent USDA beef are drizzled in the house special sauce and encased in a pillow soft sesame bun.My date did that annoying ‘lets share starters’ and I begrudgingly had to hand over one of my Lil’ Brgs.We also shared a Sea Bass Ceviche served in Ponzu tiger milk with citrus tobiko and topped with a crispy tapioca cracker.Bursting with fresh flavours this was a great contrast to the rich juicy sliders.When it come to choosing a main course, I continued with the ‘when in Rome’ theme and after a recommendation from the waitress, opted for the Filet served medium and an indulgent side order of Mac and Cheese.The melt in your mouth beef was cooked to perfection.A little Chimichurri sauce on the side gave it just enough heat.Breaking the golden lid of the Mac and Cheese revealed a creamy pasta delight loaded with flavour and seasoning. When it comes to wine pairings the restaurant’s sommelier can recommend the perfect wine to accompany your dish. Our waitress was very knowledgeable when it came to the wine list and recommended a South African white and Argentinean Malbec, both were delicious.The portion sizes here are generous and I couldn’t even contemplate a pudding.For those who do save a little room then there’s a sweet selection to choose from.

STK is a brilliant first date venue and great for groups. Set in glamorous surroundings you get that A List experience.The service was first class, our waitress was attentive and discreet with the knack to appear whenever our wine glass was low.
