The Butcher Shop and Grill at Avenues Mall, Phase 2, 1st floor.
We had lunch here today was a bit worried at first as it was empty at 12.30 (never usually a good sign) but it was still early for lunch. After we checked the menu we decided it was worth trying. Nearly didn’t get passed the first page as there were so many of my favourites but thought better of it and ordered starters to share and a filet steak (seeing as it's famous for steaks)
Btl Evian 1.5l..KD 1.500
Beef, bacon, avocado salad..KD 3.900- Nice but avocado was hard.
Deep fried camembert with cranberry..KD 3.300- Would have liked it crispier and hot, it was cold.
Beef carpaccio, rocket and parmesan..KD 3.850 - Average.
2 Fillets with potatoes..KD 19.800- FABULOUS!!!! Tender and tasty.
Side of pepper sauce..KD 0.400- Excellent they should bottle it and sell it.
Chocolate brownie..KD 1.750- Huge but not chocolatey enough.
Espresso..KD 0.950- Good espresso plus cute, tasty biscuit.
So for 3 people (2 of us shared a filet main course)
That averages out to KD 12.150 per person.
Service by Joe was impeccable.
Would definitely go back if I fancied eating a steak.
Thank you Monica and Deb xx
