Empire Steak: For Steaks Under P500

Let's face it. Being in a relationship can be expensive at times. All that going out and eating in fancy restaurants can really burn a hole in one's pocket. That's why Mike and I are always on the hunt for budget-friendly places with great food - much like the restaurant I'm featuring today! So if you're on a budget like us, here's a place you should definitely visit: Empire Steak

We tried their bestseller, the King Kong Steak, which has "everything on it," as Chef Conrad puts it. Eggs, vegetables, mushrooms, onions, potato chips and two US rib eye steaks for only P499!! Swak na sa budget, may natira pa for dessert!

Just look at this baby.


And did I mention their Truffle Mashed Potato is the best thing ever? It seriously is! The truffle oil takes this siding to a whole new level, it's so yummy and creamy - it's just really, really good, I swear! It's just a bit pricey at P99 a scoop, but you can always get their regular mashed potato for half the price. :P

The restaurant is small, but that's part of its charm. If you're looking for a quick steak fix, then this is the place for you. Chef Conrad opened Empire Steak in June 2013 with the idea of New York street food in mind, hence the gyros and steak wraps (which I'm planning to try soon).

Chef Conrad's concept is simple and straight-forward - imported steaks at an affordable price. Doesn't that make you want to visit them, too? Go now, they're just located in Teachers Village in QC! :)

Aside from being delicious, their steaks are pretty photogenic too! Mike and I enjoyed dipping the steaks in barbecue sauce (you can have them with gravy too!)

Order mashed potato or rice with this and you're all set! Mike and I even had left overs. We were that full.

Since Chef Conrad's has a background in Italian cuisine, expect special items on the menu every now and then. Follow Empire Steak's Facebook page for updates! (I'm super excited for this) :)

I also took the opportunity to give Mike's birthday gift there. I bought it weeks ago and I just couldn't wait a day longer. Haha! I'm so glad he liked it! :)
