I can’t be the only one, daydreaming of a good old steak repeatedly. Restaurant quality steak, I mustn’t be the only one? And yes, the image above is shaky as very shortly after it was taken, the contents were devoured!
I know what you’re thinking, why don’t you just make it at home? But that’s where you’re wrong you see. The difference is staring you right in the face! The cut of meat and how it’s made just isn’t the same! Unless you’re a professional chef, achieving the same results at home is almost impossible! I know many of us must be on the verge on insanity, but let me get you back on the sane side. And this side has steak, left, right and centre! Ooooh imagine having a surf and turf! Lobster and steak, that’s what dreams are made of right there.
Unless you go to a butchers, (I don’t even think they’re open currently, correct me if I’m wrong) the cut of the meat just is not the same. In the supermarkets, you get so many options but not very varied aka ‘frying steak’, ‘braising steak’ and the rest and I just feel like scratching my steak infested eyeballs out and shouting, “where is normal steak?!”. Already this whole debacle just makes your craving intensify even more!
If lockdown could just be lifted to get a little bit of steak, maybe some wedges on the side, I’d be good for the rest of quarantine! I wouldn’t even wanna go anywhere else! But I’ve been hearing apparently, Costa coffee stores are opening, and queues were unimaginably long, and it’s just leaves me wondering, “YOU’VE BEEN LOCKED DOWN FOR 6 WEEKS OR LONGER AND YOU’RE CRAVING AN ESPRESSO?! OR AN ICED LATTE?” You’re queuing for absolutely ages, around people who you don’t even know have the virus or not, just for a hot coco?! Who even wants hot drinks in spring?! Why are so many of you even out? What happened to only going out for essentials?! If you wanna go down that road, steak is an essential too! But I don’t see any steakhouses opening!
I’m craving all sorts of food. What makes it worse is the area I live in, basically NO TAKEAWAYS ARRIVE! I mean before lockdown, everyday for me felt like quarantine anyway! But the least I could do was travel for miles for a good steak. And you know what makes it worse, is that as soon as lockdown is lifted, in a gradual manner or what not, all restaurants will be packed anyway. They’ll probably even say they’re out of steak! Nothing surprises me anymore. If Mc Donalds can tell me they have no burgers, only chicken nuggets; KFC have no chicken on the bone; even an italian retsaurant having no more dough, and these are all true events that’ve have happened to me, imagine what life after lockdown will be!
Will we have to camp outside of restaurants the night before to get a seat? It’s looking ever so likely. The Wimbledon queue will look like a walk in the park after lockdown!
What are you craving after lockdown? There must be that one meal that just isn’t the same if you make it at home? Is steak on your mind like it is mine? Comment below my food lovers!!
