It’s time for a quick GOOD IDEA/BAD IDEA with STK Out — a to-go outpost of the famous STK restaurant from The One Group. I’ve been eyeing this place for so long since I pass it often on my way to work and decided to stop by today.
GOOD IDEA: PARMESAN TRUFFLE FRIES
My mantra is fries are always a good idea. Parmesan truffle fries, an even better one. The best part is neither the truffle nor the parmesan just sit on top — it’s evenly spread throughout the serving of fries. Even if it is 9713298 calories, I devoured it to the end.
BAD IDEA: GRILLED VEGGIE WRAP
I feel like I just got punk’d. I fixated on the “grilled” part, not realizing it was a cold wrap. I was just all sorts of thrown off. I’m generally not a fan of cold carbs, and it even crossed my mind after I ordered to ask if this was a cold wrap but I figured it was too late. The ingredients sounded promising (hummus, zucchini, tomato, lemon vinaigrette rolled in a spinach wrap), but I could barely finish half.
And THAT, my friends, is why I could never be a legit dietitian. The end.
Meal: Weekday lunch
(Out of three stars)
Ambiance: Can’t say much — it’s an outpost in the middle of a courtyard
Would I go back?: Yes, to try more
