Lunch @ Meat Smith

October 27, 2016 in American by thywhaleliciousfay

What do we crossfitters eat when we head out for lunch after class? We protein overload! Keke. I like that we train hard and eat hard. We don’t go too crazy with sticking to a strict diet, although our head coach always tell us to eat moderately when we have our cheat meals.

My crossfitter assisted to make reservation for a group of 9 for Saturday. Probably because lunch appointment was made pretty late for 2pm, we had the entire place to ourselves!

And from the menu (pages 1, 2, 3, 4), we ordered:-

1) Crispy pork rinds, $6 (above)


  

2) Smoked garlic bread, $6 (above) – This was good! I was surprised to see there was cheese within. So glad my crossfitter said to order this.

3) Southern fried calamari, $14 (above)

4) Pig ears lettuce wrap, $8 (above)

5) Chicken feet with sarsi-que sauce, $8 (above)


6) Brisket sandwich, $20 (above) – With pickles, slaw, mayo. Served as a curry puff, my crossfitters feedback that the spices made the meat within a little too overwhelming.

7) Chicken wings (southern), $14 (above)


8) Chicken wings (nashville), $14 (above)

9) Iberico bacon loin, $36/220g (above) – With charred pineapple, tomato and tarragon. My favourite!

10) Short rib empanada, $14 (above)

11) Premium BBQ platter (serves 4 – 6), $330 comprised of:-

(A) Mishima ultra wagyu ribeye, beef rib, smoked chicken, pork ribs (above) – I don’t take beef but my crossfitters said the ribeye was very good. I, on the other hand, really enjoyed the meaty pork ribs!

(B) Bone marrow (above) – My crossfitters enjoyed this so much that one even ordered this as a-la carte ($10) to eat as dessert. Yes, I kid you not!

(C) Side #1 (above) – Bacon mac & cheese.

(D) Side #2 (above) – Salt & vinegar roasties. For non-beef eaters like me, do note these are roasted with beef fat.

(E) Side #3 (above) – Cauliflower & bleu d’auvergne.

12) Honey pie, orange marmalade, fennel pollen, $10 (above) – This had an interesting texture.

13) Honey bourdon creme brulee. $12 (above)

It was a crazy meal in the sense of whenever we felt the portion wasn’t enough to go round, we would just order more. We had quite a fair bit of seconds thirds cause the portion wasn’t meant to be shared with anymore than 3 people. And, well… Our appetites are twice larger than normal people’s too. (^^lll)

Will I recommend Meat Smith? Unfortunatly, no. Meat Smith’s forte seems to lie in their beef, which I don’t consume due to religious reason. The remaining meats didn’t (exactly) blow me away, and their stuff were pretty pricey too.
