I recently moved house (which is one of the reasons why I haven’t been blogging lately) and although I now live only about a mile away from where we moved from, a few different options of places to eat within walking distance have opened up. One of these places is Traks steak restaurant next to Thorpe Bay station. It is part of the Trattoria Verde Italian restaurant next door (which is also worth a visit) but isn’t just your average steak joint. The meat is sealed in the kitchen then presented to you, still cooking on a hot lava stone.
This is a novelty in itself but you can leave it to cook to your preference for as long as you wish before you begin to eat. I opted for the fillet and have to say that it’s one of the tastiest steaks I’ve ever had. The chips were pretty decent too and it also comes with coleslaw. The only downside for me is that as the stone keeps the meat piping hot, I burnt my tongue! Next time I may ask for a separate plate to put the steak on once it’s finished cooking but if not the sore tongue is worth it for such a delicious meal.
We went at around 4pm on a Saturday so it was quiet but started to get busy as we were leaving so I can see it being popular in the evening. For desert I had white profiteroles which I’d definitely recommend
