There may be other food in this blog post but make no mistake, it's all about that amazing steak sandwich down there, wait wait! don't scroll yet, read the crap I've put up here first. The story goes that it was my friend's wedding week and I'd made a plan to not say 'no' to anything that week (I think it went quite well, for the most part anyway) and one day I got a text message saying drinks at KuDeTa at MBS the next day. My sister got wind of it and ended up inviting herself along. Long story short, rule number one of alcohol: eat food before drinking.
..and that's how we ended up at Beanstro. I originally wanted to go to TWG but the sister didn't think they served dinner food and Beanstro (which is by coffee bean and tea leaf) was closer to where we already where.
Well, on to the food, as usual, start with a drink, I'm not a coffee drinker so iced tea it is. It looked good and tasted good, not overly sweet and I could actually taste the tea.
Oh, I forgot to mention, Beanstro has the honour of being situated around the water tornado fountain, which leads to the 'canal' (under the bridge pictured).
There's indoor seating, but there's also seating around the fountain, though I don't know how much fun that would be when the fountain is running.
Shopfront and indoor seating, most people chose to sit outside. There's something calming about water.
My sister ordered the Penne chicken pasta, looked yummy and she liked it.
Oh, almost forgot, this, this is the piece de resistance: The ah-mazing steak sandwich. I've had some dodgy steak sandwiches in the past, rubbery meat that's too thick, overpowering sauce, too much bread, the list goes on. This, however, was a masterpiece, just one piece of bread, thin slices of charred steak pieces, fresh veggies, caramelised onions and my favourite inclusion: pickles. It was absolutely delicious and I wanted more. Alas, it was time for drinks so maybe next time (she said longingly).
Oh perfect steak sandwich, till next time…
