I was blessed as I received my first hard earned euros! And what's the best way to spend it?
HT hubbie and I didn't had difficulty in deciding how to spend my first. We both agreed that we would go Broadway!
No...we didn't go to New York City (that's too much) nor we didn't go to a theatrical performance in London, but the ambiance kinda brought us to the theatre.
numerous spotlights, the waiting area was decorated like a stage theatre
All we want was to be carnivorous that day. I've read about Broadway American Steakhouse in wikitravel and I made sure that this would be one of my first stops here. And, to date, I've been here twice, once with hubby's sister and bro-in-law and now with HT hubbie himself.
We didn't make any reservation and as expected, they cannot give us a table until 21:30. Since we conditioned ourselves to have dinner here, so HT hubbie used his convincing power and luckily, they allowed us to dine with a limited time...a little bit over an hour. And we didn't let the opportunity passed by.
as a consequence, we have to share the table with a VIP (very important pet)
Spicy Ribs (600+ grams) - wikitravel didn't fail us. The ribs were tasty with a hint of spiciness. The meat that we pull from the rib bones were very tender and not dry. Look how the ribs were nicely glazed with bbq sauce that we can't help but lick the bones and our fingers...yum. The serving is pretty big and good for sharing. HT hubbie gave two thumbs up to this ribs plate and consider this as best ribs he had so far.
Frenched racks - There were 6 pcs of lamb. We ordered this just to have something different even though we were tempted to stuff ourselves with baby ribs. Unfortunately, this was a bit disappointing. The meat was overcooked making it dry. And it could used more salt to make it not bland.
The time pressure made us eat fast and wiped off the plates in less than an hour. (if we keep on doin' this, we might change our names to MIGHTY EATERS instead of HUNGRYTROTTERS). :D
This place can never be missed just look down when you're passin' by Oudegracht (canal) below HEMA.
I love first's. How about you? What is your most unforgettable first?
