While in Atlantic City for a few days, TK and I had a meal at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse because apparently, we like to spend a lot of money on food. Well, this meal wasn’t too bad on the wallet but it did make a nice dent on my hunger, mmm hmmm.
We started out with the crab cakes as an appetizer. They were flaky with big chunks of crab and just a little pepper kicks you in the face at the end of your bite, but it was just the right amount, so I wasn’t uncomfortable.
Then I ordered the Petit Filet and it was served on a sizzling plate of butter. What’s not to love about that? The steak was seasoned well with just salt and pepper. It was delicious and just the right size. To accompany our steaks, we ordered broccoli and mashed potatoes. The broccoli was crunchy, well done and seasoned right. The mashed potatoes were tasty with the mix of garlic and butter to fit the meal just right. It is essentially steak and potatoes after all!
For dessert, I had one of the most delicious dishes I have ever eaten … thus far. It was the Caramelized Banana Cream Pie and it had a flaky crust, light cream and blow-torched fresh bananas. Oooohh it was crunchy and creamy and sweet and salty, and just all around good. Even the sugar that wasn’t on the pie was caramelized. They went all out. I know it is a high-end steakhouse but this dessert should not be skipped when eating at Ruth’s Chris. You will truly be missing out.
