STK at The Cosmoplitan | Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Travelling Foodie Eats at STK in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

STK Las Vegas is a contemporary steakhouse from The One Group and Executive Chef Stephen Hopcraft, a Bravo TV “Top Chef” contestant. It was in Open Table’s 100 Best Steakhouses in America 2016.

The setting is dark and ultra modern with modern structures and uniquely constructed booths – probably the most lit section is the bustling bar scene. The vibe is a party vibe as the in-house DJ tries to bring the steakhouse to its feet! In fact, it was in Thrillist’s Best Party Restaurants in Vegas

Travelling Foodie Favourites

For starters, my favourite was the Hawaiian Big Eye Tuna Tartare. The tuna was so fresh and fatty that it seems like eating bluefin tuna (maybe even chutoro level). The avocado adds a nice touch to the mix, and the soy honey emulsion enhances the overall flavour.

For mains, it’s no surprise that my favourites were the Loin Strip and Glazed Beef Short Rib. I was so surprised about the Loin Strip because it was so tender and juicy, and the juice had marbled taste to it that I felt like I was having ribeye. The Glazed Beef Short Rib was the best beef short rib I’ve had so far. It was literally melt in your mouth tender. In fact, the short rib fell apart in tenderness as I tried slicing through – it was that good! Also, if you were to add a side, I highly recommend their Mac & Cheese!

For desserts, my favourite was the STK donuts. It’s not written in the menu’s description but these are actually sweet potato donuts, which was something I’ve never had before. And it was amazing! It’s much better than flour donuts: you have the gelatinous texture of the sweet potato, it’s crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside and it’s less filling. And the other good part is, even after reheating it at home, it still tasted good – which is really hard to say for regular donuts.

One thing I’d like to highlight here as well is the service. Our server, Tara, was very attentive and made sure we were well served and happy. Aside from this, bus people were also frequently roaming the area to make sure tables are cleared and waters are refilled. There was no point in our dining where we felt we had to ask them to do something, which is very rare in my dining experiences.
