Cults of personality aren't just for politics

Um.

Do I need to RTFA again or did subby miss something?
 
2021-11-02 6:27:11 AM  
The only way I'd buy one of those is if they could guarantee that my shiat would come out gold-plated. And I would definitely post photos of that.
 
2021-11-02 7:59:19 AM  
No, they are not subby.

I mean I get not RTFA before commenting on it, but not RTFA before submitting it is impressive.

For John Stirk, a butcher and steakhouse owner, it prompted exasperation. "I love it when people post pictures of the food they've had and give us a good review. What annoys me about the restaurant in London is that there's a lot more pictures of people posting receipts for how much they've paid for the food rather than the quality."

Why, it's as if the food in your bougie trash trap isn't worth the money spent on it and is nothing more than a status symbol you shiat out later.

It looks like they gold leaf it after cooking.  I'd actually rather try one that'd been leafed THEN cooked.  Would that give it a steamed quality since you're essentially wrapping it in foil?  Reduce sear?

Also, ten times more bougie to make the gold hideous and render it useless as decoration thereby even wasting the status of eating a gold wrapped steak.

You eat the gold. It's rolled to be extremely thin, like, tens of microns. The amount of gold on that steak is probably not even 2 g. And gold is nonreactive so you just shiat it out.

Fools and their money.

Pretty much.  And it's not even luxurious.  You can buy a handful of sheets of the stuff on amazon for a few bucks.

The dude you're quoting isn't the one charging $1100 for a steak.  He, and others mentioned in the article, are saying how ridiculous it is.

$100 for a steak is also ridiculous, even if you get to split it and poop out a Ferrero Rocher when you're done.

Wonder if the restaurant charges for sharing a dish?

That's the good stuff. Adds that little kick of sweetness that really sets off the steak.

It's actually $136 after the currency conversion.  And yeah, it's pricey but not exactly outrageous compared to other steakhouses that offer a tomahawk steak for two.  Not my cup of tea, but not even comparable to the Salt Bae nonsense.
