During our last week in Hong Kong we got a chance to try the semi-lunch buffet (or perhaps it should be a semi-buffet lunch) at Mr. Steak Grill in Causeway Bay. The first course is the buffet, followed by an entree of your choice. I enjoyed the appetizer so much (endless shrimp cocktail and smoked salmon FTW!!!) that I barely had room left for my steak.

For around HKD$200 (depending on which entree you pick), it’s not your everyday meal if you’re a regular (read: not rich) HK person, but it’s a good bargain once in awhile for the quality and amount of food you get.

Beef Chuck Roll (for Sukiyaki)

Chuck Roll for Sukiyaki

I tossed out the label for this beef already but if I recall correctly, it was “Beef Chuck Roll (for Sukiyaki)” from Nijiya Japanese Supermarket. At $12.99/lb, there is a possibility that it is USDA Prime (based on my observations of Costco USDA Prime prices). I bought 1.27 lbs (2 trays) and it was enough to feed four people at a nice hot pot. Really tender and delicious, and better (IMHO) than the fancy ribeye one that was 3 times the price.
