d.k. Steak House (Waikiki 2015) – Dry-Aged Goodness
Back in August, we visited Waikiki and had the best meal at d.k. Steak House. For some reason, I must have forgotten to write up this blog entry… which is a shame because it was the best steak that I’ve ever had.
Just a little background… d.k. Steak House is located in the Waikiki Beach Marriott and is owned by the same group that runs Sansei Seafood. These two restaurants are actually located in the same spot so you can take your pick on which one to visit… both are superb.
On the left is the Guava Melon ($10) with svedka clementine, st. germaine, guava puree, fresh pressed watermelon juice, orgeat syrup, housemade lime sour, and a li hing mui rim. I picked the Pineapple Lychee Soda ($4.95). One thing I’ve learned from our last visit to Sansei is that they have really great drinks here.
The Kula Farms baby romaine lettuce Caesar Salad came with the Surf and Turf dinner as well as a side of Potato Souffle. They know how to make a good Caesar salad here… like most respectable steak houses.
The sides are big enough to share so we picked some vegetables to accompany the potato souffle as well as Baked Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Truffle Mac and Cheese ($8.50). This mac and cheese was soooooo good! Actually, all of the sides were really good and I would have really liked to have finished more but our mains were quite large.
d.k. is known for their dry-aged bone-in rib eye so I picked their 30-day dry-aged 22 oz bone-in Rib Eye ($58). If you ask me, this was a steal for the quality of steak you’re getting!
My honey decided on the Surf and Turf dinner with an 8 oz Filet Mignon and Lobster Tails ($89). It might sound a bit steep but it comes with 2 (YES, 2!!!) 6 oz Maine lobster tails. My sweetie couldn’t finish it so she gave me one of her lobster tails… Mmmm! Lobstah! Her filet mignon, though not as flavourful as my rib eye, was super tender.
My goodness! I’m still salivating over this steak! Even though it’s simply plated, the orchids really brightens up the dish.
Best of all, the steak was superbly buttery and flavourful. By far, the best rib steak that I’ve had so far.
Service was top notch, as to be expected of a traditional steak house. If you get a chance to go to Waikiki, make sure you try out the steaks at d.k. Steak House. And if steak isn’t your thing, Sansei next door is equally impressive with seafood offerings.
