Food Feature: STK


Hey Guys!

I hope everyone is doing well. Welcome to another Food Feature! I had the most amazing opportunity to attend a bloggers tasting hosted by STK, Orlando. STK is one of my favorite restaurants, simply because it is SEXY!! The décor in this restaurant is a win in my books. It is chic, modern and I don’t know what’s not to love. In addition to this, the food is great! How often do you find a restaurant that knocks it out of the park in all areas? In my opinion, there are only a few and STK is definitely one of them. 

I fell in LOVE (love at first dine, lol) with STK when I visited the Las Vegas location last year. The ambiance, food and atmosphere were amazing. So imagine my pleasant surprise when I heard one was going to be opened in Orlando (I died!). I immediately started making plans for my birthday dinner later in the year, but that’s another story for another time. Let’s get back on track. The staff prepared a specialized menu for our tasting. We got to try all the appetizers and desserts that were on that menu and we were afforded the opportunity to pick one entree’. Check out my pictures of the menu items below:

Central Florida Lady Blogger Tasting Menu
LIL BRGs
wagyu beef - special sauce - sesame seed bun
Heirloom Tomato & Watermelon
red chile-honey dressing- dried jack cheese
Shaved Brussel Sprouts
apple - cranberry - aged goat cheese - marcona almonds
My thoughts (appetizers) – I am not a fan of brussel sprouts or watermelon but if you are, I feel like these appetizers were well done and very flavorful. The Lil BRGs were definitely my favorite!


Crispy Mahi Mahi Sandwich
pickled slaw - chili remoulade - potato bun
STK Salad
skirt steak - asian greens - pickled mango - peanuts
Filet Medallion
red wine reduction
Asparagus
Parmesan Truffle Fries
My thoughts (entrée) – This is where I take my hats off to the chef. I asked to have my steak well done and it came out perfect. I have gone to other restaurants and my 'well done' steak comes out like rubber; just way too dry to enjoy.

Bag O' Donuts
dulce de leche filling - spiced chocolate & raspberry sauce
Orange Dream Cheesecake
bruleed oranges - whipped cream
Caramelito Bar
cocoa nib - marshmallow - chocolate bavarian

My thoughts (dessert) – Simply amazing! They provided a little piece of heaven on earth. Just in case you were wondering, the cheesecake was my absolute fave. (but I LOVE cheesecake so I could be biased)

Ginger Mojito
hennessy vs, muddled mint and lime, topped with ginger ale

My thoughts (drinks) – My drink was great! No complaints here.

Overall Review

Well, at this point I don’t think it’s a secret. I LOVED every minute of my dining experience and I urge you to give STK a try. You definitely won’t be disappointed. The service is impeccable and the food is great. As for me, I will be back at STK for my birthday.
