    It's the pet ones that you take real good care of and cook them with respect.
    I take good care of all the animals on the property DP, i do have my favorites though.

    I can cook just as good as The Dukes at home but always enjoy new variations like Rose's smoked ribs.
    See I think Dukes was absolute trash, but you said I went to the bad one neat Le Meridien

    I love Don' s

    Don's is pure bbq, bloody good but not texas-style. And yes, Loi Kroh Dukes is a separate entity. We favour The Dukes Promenada, always busy and every menu item is damned good ... 75% Thai patrons too!
    Cheers, Rob.

    See I don't like texas style BBQ

    But even at that, Duke's we went to just poured a shitty sauce over ribs, no marinating to it

    I walked into Duke"s up from Loh Kroh once. Walked out after looking at the prices. What was the name of the beef restaurant on Loh Kroh propper. They cooked a good feed, steak, Mexican, Thai. Talked to the Pom owner one night, never saw a man with his head between his hands as much as this fella.

    He wanted perfection from his staff, the thing was he didn't have enough tables for the customers who wanted to eat there. People walked past the joint because the place was full most of the time.

    I'd have a huge issue having a business in Thailand.......well, especially a business like a restaurant
    I am a stickler for hard work and I think I'd clash with the Thai staff

    The staff worked and I never had a problem with service, too many big tables for four people, a pool table out back. The fella had no idea how to set out the place. The food was Good.

    PS The fella who owned Jimmy's Sports Bar and Grill in Burriram was much the same, his staff were overwhelmed when the WSBK came to town and they had to learn English, German, French etc all in one week. He was a Scott and I had trouble understanding what he was talking about....

    It's subjective.

    Best steaks I've eaten were in America (Manhattan, to be precise). OK so they cost a week's rent but I'd sleep outdoors for a 52 steaks like that each year.

    One of my sons, who has lived in Aus, NZ, all SEAsia, N & S America swears the best steaks are in Argentina.

    Hope to find out for myself if he's right, one day.
    Eating steak in a restaurant is nice. But you're correct. The cost is ridiculous. I buy a nice grass fed NY cut steak at the Supermarket for $13. It's delicious. I think I'll get one tonight. It's been a while.

    But you just aren't aging it and cooking it as good as a proper NYC steakhouse, not even close IMO

    I rarely eat a hot dog. Probably at a ball game. But after witnessing Asians excitement over hot dogs. They look really good now.

    On my grill. Cooking a 1 inch NY steak medium rare takes 3 to 4 minutes on a high flame. There's not much to know.

    But you still can't come close to the aging and the cooking in a salamander like a proper NYC steakhouse.........not eve close

    And I know you are a good cook, you grilled that mystery meat in Hawaii to perfection
    But you ain't any NYC steakhouse

    I agree on the aging and the quality difference. And I wouldn't know how to cook a 3 inch steak. But the price is OTT in the steak houses. Not sure it's worth it for that amount unless my employer is paying for it. What's a salamander?

    That's that grill with the flames on top that slides out and you slide it back in

    As for prices, splitting a porterhouse and sides with someone it's not that bad......not cheap but not that bad

    I can't eat a huge steak on my own anymore

    Salamanders are kitchen devices used for broiling, browning, caramelizing, glazing, grilling and toasting. They are used to finish off foods, rather than cook them.
    All my years in restaurant kitchens and I did not know that..55
