Have you ever heard of the amazing thing called 团购 a.k.a. group buying? Yes, that thing is the shiz. I can’t believe I knew about it just recently! Group buying was the very thing that allowed my friends and I to release our inner carnivore with Brazilian food (cooked in
China LOL) for only 69 RMB (about 430 pesos), cheaper than its original 100RMB (about 700 pesos) price tag.
This was what I was talking about – 团购 or group buying. Through group buying, you get discounts on items, meals or events that would have otherwise been more expensive. Companies offer deals all the time through a lot of group buying websites, one of which is the above one. Have fun exploring, there’s so many of them out there!
Basically, it’s a meat fest! More on the meats later (we had about 12 kinds, I was simply dizzy the whole time), but they do have other stuff like seafood, soups, breads and veggies to break the meat monotony.
Blurry pictures, but you get how it works. We got all excited and accepted everything they gave us, but the meat more worthy of partaking (a.k.a. medium rare beef, smoked goat meat and beef innards) came at the latter part, so we were already half full. 😐 Lesson learned! Don’t get all excited and take everything at the beginning. Haha!
See that glob of fat on top? THAT WAS THE BEST BEEF FAT I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY ENTIRE LIFE! 😀 😀 😀 Yeah it’s fat and I had to majorly control myself, but it’s awesome. It came with the smoked beef innards or something, and man, it’s delicious. *guilty pleasure* This is the type of thing that will make me miserable in my old age!
The ice cream looks decent, but believe me, it’s terrible. Much more so the bread pudding. One thing about this restaurant is that you get value for your money from the meat alone, they have a large selection of other stuff like seafood, breads, sushi and dessert, most of them are not worth trying. Some even tasted like they’ve been kept for a day or two, or they just didn’t put in the effort to at least make them taste extraordinary. So, meh. I’m going back for my meats and them alone.
Of course, to enjoy good food, you have to be with great people who round up the whole experience. We were four in all, including Tee, our Thai classmate. He’s topping all the “first to get a doctorate” or “best teacher” charts, but that doesn’t make him boring. Here he is playing with his… shrimp. How… mature. :p
