Us Brits love our meat and potatoes, so thought I’d let you know about a nice place to get a good piece of steak. The chain is called The Keg and is equivalent to the Beefeater Grill back home in the U.K.
The Keg has at least 10 choices of steak, which is suitable for any hungry carnivore. Needless to say, leave your vegetarian friends at home next time you go — no mung bean salad on this menu.
My go-to choice is the baseball top sirloin = 12 oz of juicy steak, so thick that the most they can cook it is medium rare … which is optimal to get the full flavour. What’s the point of well done? Might as well eat shoe leather.
There’s some good starters too — recommend the crab cakes — and sides — recommend the mash with roasted garlic. In season, there’s also some tasty lobster specials too.
But The Keg is all about the meat. One small critique I have is that the menu doesn’t seem to change that much. That’s fine if you expect to see the same thing year in, year out, but it would be nice to freshen up the offerings once in a while.
But keep the baseball!
I give it a Brits in Toronto 4/5 stars.
Update: The Keg kindly informed me in a tweet that their new feature menu starts on September 30, so check it out.
