The STEAK Cartel

When we reached the second floor of the building, we immediately saw the restaurant. It is a small-sized restaurant but it has IG-worthy spots and has a lot to offer.

Swings are at the side for customers who are waiting for their turn to dine, or for those who wanted to take pictures 🙂

Here is this dining area with a sofa. So, we have decided to dine here ’cause it looks so cool.

The Food

Steak is the specialty of the restaurant, but they also have a lot of other dishes.

Wagyu Skewers

First is this Wagyu Skewers which is composed of four Wagyu cubes placed on a bed of lettuce drizzled with TSC signature Yakiniku Sauce.

Just look at this cube, it looks small at first and you’ll think “how does this taste?” because it’s so small. But when you bite into it, the taste of the Wagyu will burst into your mouth and you’ll want more.

Each stick costs P109 but the quality and the taste is more than that.

Cheesy Nachos

This Cheesy Nachos is made out of Fresh Corn Tortillas, shard red cheddar, Jalapeno, Tomatoes, Onions, Cheese Sauce, and Truffle aioli.

One order is already good for 2 to 3 people, and an excellent choice for an appetizer.

Super Onion Burger

Then, after the Cheesy Nachos, we had the Super Onion Burger. This one is made out of a Brioche bun, 1/3 pound 100% pure Wagyu beef, orange cheddar cheese, a lot of caramelized onions, fresh arugula, burger sauce, and served with curly fries.

We can’t get enough of the Wagyu that we even have to order a burger made out of Wagyu haha. Just like its name, the burger has a lot of onions! We love it!

Hola Amigo

One of their best sellers is the Hola Amigo, which is a hotdog sandwich (It is actually a sausage not a hotdog haha). It is made out of Brioche bun, meaty sausage, TSC signature chimichurri mayonnaise, and served with fries.

Upon ordering you will be asked how do you like your steak. Medium-Rare, Medium, Medium-Well, or Well done. We recommend that you order it medium-rare, well just because that’s how I like my steak haha. Each order of steak is served with potato marble, chimichurri, and barbecue sauce on the side.
