The Experts: Stuart Langlands & Christine Timmins
Age: 27 & 26
Lived in Edinburgh: We both have lived in Edinburgh all of our lives
The Subject: Steak
Why do you love it?
We love Steak because we think it’s a delicious alternative to other meats. Steak to us, is a special meal and not something you have daily, so it’s great for date nights.
How often do you eat it?
Probably 2x a month, sometimes more if there has been a Costco trip!
How many Edinburgh restaurants have you had this from?
We have to say we have been to quite a few Edinburgh steak restaurants!
What are your top 3 recommendations for the dish?
1. Medium (not too rare and not too overdone)
2. Roasted tomatoes and/or mac n cheese is a great accomplishment
3. We disagree with this 3rd one:
Stuart – LOVES béarnaise sauce and if this isn’t on the menu there’s no point going
Christine – a good steak doesn’t require any sauce, as the meat itself is tasty enough.
What makes a great steak?
The length it has been aged for.
What’s your alternative if it’s not on the menu?
Stuart – Seafood (or another restaurant)
Christine – some other form of meat/fish dish.
You can only eat 1 steak for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
Stuart – Fillet
Christine – Fillet (I’m not a fan of fat), but if we could share a chateaubriand I would!
Is there somewhere you haven’t had this at yet, but want to try?
Stuart – Miller and Carter
Christine – I honestly think I’ve been most places in Edinburgh for a steak, but I haven’t been to Wildfire yet, so let’s go with that!
