Alexander’s… Steakhouse!

Have you ever been to Alexander’s Steakhouse? I recently went yesterday for a family Christmas dinner and one word of advice, dress very nicely! Alexander’s Steakhouse’s walls are lined with all sorts of beer, wine and margaritas. My family and I dinned in a room with no one else in it. Ahhh, nice peace and quiet!  It actually wasn’t a private room, it was just a room with no one else eating.

Alexander’s Steakhouse serves almost any steak you can imagine from the simple slow roasted prime rib to the fancy tomahawk steak. I seriously had a rough time picking my steak. I ended up picking the slow roasted prime rib because it was the lowest price. Speaking of prices, in the appetizers section of the menu, you can order one ounce of caviar for …………….. $250. Also, Alexander’s Steakhouse serves a large wagyu beef Kobe (Bryant, haha) steak fresh from Japan. My aunty Lena even devoured a porterhouse steak that was so big three people could share it.

Here are a few appetizers I’d love to share with you:

  1. Hamachi shooters

Description: Just a couple pieces of fresh Hamachi with avocado, ponzu sauce, poppy seeds, and some jalapenos garnished on top.

  1. Popcorn crab

Description: Crab tempura (there isn’t much crab in the smaller pieces, so my sister always eats those!) with a siracha sauce to follow.

  1. Goat cheese with beets

Description: Just what you think it is, goat cheese with beats in a soup spoon

  1. Jello

Description: This may not seem like an appetizer, but the size of this makes it count. This dish consists of raspberry jello, apricot jam, and a strawberry in a small soup spoon.

  1. Edamame

Description: Hot and fresh Edamame with a tasty truffle oil, salt, and some butter. I love to eat them by sucking on the skin to experience the wonderful truffle taste!

These descriptions might not seem fancy, but when you see the pictures I have put in, you’ll see the value in them. Although appetizers might not be the main focus in Alexanders Steakhouse, they do put up a big meaning in why people love this amazing restaurant.

    Everything looks so delicious! Do you ever go to “normal” restaurants like Amici or CPK?

      We go to CPK a lot, but the one in Palo Alto closed down, so now we don’t go as much.

    wow, I am reading this at 9:00 a.m. in the morning and my mouth is watering. I thought about going out and getting some steak and eggs for breakfast but remembered that every time I have steak and eggs for breakfast, the steak is never as good as when I have steak for lunch or dinner. Have you ever experienced that? Why is that?

      Breakfast is usually for something simple, but filling. Dinner and lunch is for more fancy foods. SO sometimes your stomach doesn’t feel like it at breakfast.
