If you're like me then you'll know there is nothing better than a good old steak. However with steak I find that you really have to delve into the world of eateries to find one that is great quality. You know, the horrible chewiness you get with some of them? Sometimes you even have to hack at it for ages just to cut off a piece!
Not with this restaurant! Flat Iron currently has four restaurants, all of which are situated in the London area. There are two situated in the Soho area, one in Shoreditch and the one I am going to be talking about which is the Covent Garden restaurant. Flat Iron prides itself on only using the best cut of meat for it's steaks, they even work with their rare breed of cattle that are situated on their own farm in North Yorkshire.
You can always tell a good restaurant by looking at the menu! Flat Iron's is small yet powerful serving a choice of it's iconic steak for £10 and a select few sides. All that compliment the steak perfectly. There are also a few choices from the specials board, the day I went there was the choice of a rump steak and a burger.
To compliment your steak Flat Iron don't just give you any old steak knife, they literally give you a meat cleaver. This is something I have never seen in a steak restaurant before but it is such a nice touch. You can even purchase your own for the price of £10!
So let's talk about what I ordered. I chose the steak with a side of creamed spinach, aubergine and chips. The steak was nothing like I had tasted before. It literally melted in your mouth and had the most delicious topping to it. The sides went perfectly with all the flavours and everything just worked so well together. You can tell from the pictures how good this meal actually was! A really nice touch to the end of your meal is that at the Covent Garden restaurant you are given a token which is for a free pudding. Once you have finished your meal if you're still hungry you can visit the Ice Cream stand where you get a free salted caramel ice cream cone topped with chocolate shavings to take away. May I add they don't just do their puddings by halves either!
So if you haven't yet found the perfect place to get a great quality steak definitely give one of Flat Iron's restaurants a visit to see what all the fuss is about.
