After planning on visiting Sims Steakhouse last weekend I called them on Saturday about WinterDine. To my surprise, they were going to be offering the WinterDine special this week. Finally Thursday came and I finally got to indulge!
Chicken Spring Roll with Sweet Chili Sauce
PEI Prime 10oz Ribeye served with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes Seasonal Vegetables.
Chocolate Brownie with Cow's Vanilla Ice Cream.
$35 per person.
My first impressions of Sims Steakhouse was not off to the right start. Like another Murphy establishment I walked into two weeks prior, I was greeted by a big ol' empty room. So I waited, and waited, and waited some more. I started walking around. No alarm went off so I thought they must be open. Then I went back to the greeting spot by the door, then back to the bar and bingo! A staff member on the opposite side of the room (not by the bar). After startling her, she proceeded to greet me like a regular customer.
Sitting down by the bar, my first question was, "how many options does the WinterDine menu have". and she informed me, "only the 1". Great I thought, "I'll take it," I said.
Shortly thereafter, another server took my drink order and came back with it. A few minutes later, out comes the chicken spring roll. After taking my first bite into it, immediately I thought, yuck! Why? ONIONS! I am no fan of onions what so ever. So, I used my knife to do surgery on the spring rolls to remove the onions. They tasted much better. After finishing the spring rolls, the next up was the main course.
While waiting for the main course, I got curious as to what I was going to be eating. Sure enough, the waitress told me, "PEI prime 10oz ribeye". Ordering it medium, I figured it wouldn't take too long to cook up. After what felt like 20-25 minutes later, it arrived looking deliciously tasty!
The steak looked perfectly cooked with some juicy vegetables next to it. My first bite went into the mashed potatoes proved to be extremely creamy with a great light garlic taste. Truly delicious I thought as I continued to eat my vegetables. The mashed potatoes really impressed me as it has been a while since I tasted such a delicious treat.
Now, if only they could extend WinterDine for another week, I'd definitely be going back to Sims Steakhouse!
