SquareMeal Review of The Bull Steak Expert

1

"GOOD"

Readers are already warming to this ‘great, cosy steakhouse’ – a newcomer to meat-heavy Bloomsbury scene that is getting top reviews for its knowledgeable service and terrific food. The ‘expert’ in question is main man Daniel Veron, who has been in the business of butchering and grilling pampas-reared beef for five decades. His menu majors in ‘cooked to perfection’ steaks – rump, rib-eye, fillet and sirloin, served individually or as a mighty quartet on one plate. He-man ‘parrilladas’ (mixed grills) are enough for two, and the kitchen also sends out international specials ranging from beef milanese topped with a fried egg to chicken suprême steeped in whisky and lemon. Start with empanadas, salmon tiradito with guacamole or aubergine escabèche, and round off with chocolate tart or passion fruit mousse. To drink, there are some beefy Argentinian numbers among the list of international tipples.

I and three coleagues/friends had a very long and boozy lunch here. We were sat downstairs which seemed more spacious than upstairs, though with three large, mostly male groups (including us!) it did get quite loud. The food was outstanding - all of us had different cuts of steak and each was done perfectly as ordered. Wine list was slightly pricey but we had an Argentinian Malbec blend for around £50 which was superb and went very well with the steaks. Service was friendly and professional, and the whole experience was delightful.

Very similar menu and decor to a well-known chain of Argentinian steakhouses, but better value and with a little more soul. The quality of the ingredients is high and the grill chef knows what he is doing. Service is friendly and, importantly, efficient (little waiting time from ordering food to its arrival) which makes it a great place to go for lunch.

Went to Bull Steak Expert for the first time and loved it! Good to find an independent restaurant doing well. Place was busy all the time we were there. The meat was outstanding. Service was great – informal and attentive. My only grip was that the extra gamba I ordered with the steak were not great value for money. I ordered two and was disappointed with their size. I would have done better to go with the half lobster. It won't put us off from returning though.
