Bahrain Confidential tries Legendz Steakhouse’s “Lazy Legendary Lunch” at the InterContinental Regency Bahrain.
InterContinental Regency Bahrain is home to a number of Bahrain’s favorite dining destinations, spanning a wide array of cuisines. Legendz Steakhouse adds to this effortlessly with its take on the art of cooking prime meat cuts. We’ve recently tried the steakhouse’s “Lazy Legendary Lunch”, and it did not disappoint.
The Lazy Lunch that takes place every Saturday, is a relaxed afternoon affair great for family and friends. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were warmly welcomed by the staff. At first glance, we’ve noticed that there was already quite a crowd so we were expecting the lunch to be good.
Down to the food, the real star of the show. The lunch features an unlimited a la carte menu from the chef’s selection. We’ve always loved a la carte brunches and think that it is the best way to dine as opposed to buffets. During the visit, we sampled an inspired menu of signature steaks, fresh seafood, grills and seasonal specials. We decided to order most of the dishes to share – both from the starters, main courses and grills.
We started with the delicious starters including our favorite ‘Chili & Salt Spiced Calamari’ with pickled green papaya, coriander, fried chili and caramelized dressing. We then had the ‘Truffle Egg Benedict’ with turkey ham, English muffin and truffle hollandaise sauce. There was also a carving trolley which featured the ‘Braised Texas Style BBQ Beef Ribs’, a signature dish of the restaurant. It was served with Legendz’ famous BBQ sauce along with roasted baby potatoes. The ‘Masala Crusted Salmon’ from the main course selection was delightful too.
In terms of the steak, we ordered each from the three options: Tenderloin, Fillet Mignon (wrapped in your choice of bacon) and Ribeye. All of them were wonderful but the best one was the Fillet Mignon! It’s worth noting that there were a lot of choices for the sauces and accompaniments for the steaks. The ‘Béarnaise’ and ‘Chimichurri’ sauce were two of our favorites. We’ve tried all of the accompaniments and we really like the ‘Sautéed Mixed Mushroom’ and ‘Sweet Potato Wedges’.
Thoroughly stuffed we, unfortunately, had to pass on desserts but there was a Legendary Sweet Trolley with the chef’s selections of dessert and cheese.
What we really loved about the lunch was the fact that all the dishes were exceptionally presented. The service was attentive and every request was catered to. The family-friendly and professional service complemented the stylish, contemporary setting. The whole experience was very comfortable and at times quite cozy, never feeling rushed.
The lunch was a wonderful finish to the week. We savored each dish and listened to the soothing melodies of the hotel’s resident band, DD & The Groove. If you think that is not relaxing enough, you also have the option to continue to chill at the Elements lounge.
With steaks to die for and grapes to live for, we’ve certainly had a legendary time at Legendz Steakhouse!
