We all know the best steakhouses in London are Goodman and Rex and Mariano, Zelman Meats has finally opened and it is their new steakhouse  after Rex and Mariano was recently closed.   Menu is simple, only serving three different types of meat, one being the ribs.  No thrills, no fancy starters, just good quality of meats being perfectly cooked.

Sea salt is a must for steak

There is no doubt the Chateaubriand was far better than the Picanha, and with the price difference of £3 per 100g.  At the start I was thinking of only ordering the Chateaubriand since we all know it is better quality and bound to taste better.  However we ordered both the steak and did not regret it. We of course had the Picanha first, followed by the Chateaubriand, and we did not regret it.  The Picanha isn’t too bad, but was tougher to eat, but it was still perfectly grilled.  Eating the Picanha first made us appreciate the Chateaubriand much more, and gave us the chance to compare the meat.  The Chateaubriand was heavenly, the meat was red in the middle just as I like (medium rare) and crispy on the outside. It was an excellent piece of meat, they also provides a little tube of sea salt on the table, it’s like the best partner in crime. It brings out the flavour in the meat without making it too salty. I cannot rave enough about it.

FYI 

Picanha
Picanha is a cut of beef popular in Brazil. In the U.S. it is little known, but referred to as the rump cover, rump cap or coulotte. North American butchers generally divide it into other cuts like the rump, the round and the loin. Wikipedia

Chateaubriand steak
Chateaubriand steak is a meat dish cooked with a thick cut from the tenderloin filet. In contemporary times, chateaubriand cuts of beef refer to “a large steak cut from the thickest part of a fillet of beef”. Wikipedia

The photos explains it all right?  The meat was simply came off the bone by itself, I did not even have to raise my life.  The meat was very tender and excellently marinaded.  Every bite I can taste the BBQ sauce, I personally hate when the ribs are overcooked and dry, however this was not the case for the ribs here.  The ribs were extremely juicy! A must have!

SAUCES

I ordered both the sauces which I was very stupid to do so.  I am a fan of Béarnaise sauce and I also wanted to try the Chimichurri sauce so I ordered both.  The sauces were definitely not needed, i will advise you not to order any, the meat here are good quality cut, and all you need is the sea salt which they provide. I hardly used any sauces.  However if you want the sauces, i would recommend the Béarnaise sauce as it was very creamy, and only for 1 gbp

SIDES

Black truffle and parmesan chips – 10/10

£8 for chips are on the steep side, however I have seen bloggers raving about these chips, so how can I resist?  I wouldn’t be able to resist in black truffle anyway, it was my lover from past life.  I didn’t expect it to be coming in such a big portion and I was surprised to see so much black truffle and parmesan on top.  The chips were thick cut, fried till golden brown.  They were perfectly fried, crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. So delicious.

As i was feeling unwell, we opted out for red wine, which I am gutted, how can i not have wine with steak?  Instead I ordered a cocktail which was fairly refreshing but I didn’t think it went well with my steak.  I also ordered some hot water, and it came with a piece of lemon which was very attentive of them.  Complimentary water was given.

Recommendation

  • Sliced PICANHA
  • Sliced CHATEAUBRIAND
  • Smoked SHORT RIBS
  • Black truffle and parmesan chips
  • Béarnaise sauce

Verdict

  I really enjoyed Zelman Meats, it was simple yet delicious.  The menu was easy, did not have pages of starters and desserts so i can concentrate on their steaks  Prices are reasonable especially for a big steakhouse in Soho, prices aren’t as steep as Goodman, so I left feeling very satisfied without being bankrupt.  As you might have noticed, their plates were from Goodman, the cups were from Rex & Mariano, just to remind you of their other steakhouses. i would totally recommend Zelman Meats if you fancy some good steaks.
