Did I miss the part where we found out if the meat is ground or not? If it isn't, it's got to be really tough to eat between the meat and the ciabatta.

No we haven't. Dragonbones, you, I, and some others I'm sure are still wondering about that. Also, I haven't heard the name of the restaurant. Or is this something someone put together themselves? If so, it is going to DB's forum. :p

If anyone has more than the cryptic/vague details already posted please post them.

I'll bet if it was served as something like a meze many might be jumping for it.

Is this it? It looks very tasty to me.

I have a question for the chef, how come you are promoting the idea of USDA steak...do you have funding from the American beef lobby? It's a bit of a coincidence...
I can see TV programs all over Taiwan at the moment about steak...

Okay, Charlie Jack posted these three links in the Temped part of this thread. Apparently he's found the hotel (Hotel One) and chef (Nicholas Pena Alvarez) and pics of this steak sandwich for us at last:

http://taichung.hotelone.com.tw/chinese ... ews?id=473

台中亞緻飯店獨家推出頂級牛排漢堡,外籍主廚Nicholas Pena-Alvarez展現其巧思創意,特別選用穀物飼養的頂級牛排、法國進口鴨肝、特調黑松露美乃滋、大量鮮脆蔬菜及帕馬森起士麵包做出高12公分的頂級牛排漢堡。

台中亞緻外籍主廚Nicholas Pena-Alvarez表示,當時會想做出這麼特別的漢堡,是來自於對食材的熱愛,他認為漢堡這項餐點不論是對台灣人或外國人來說都是非常熟悉且喜愛的料理,他非常喜愛牛排,也非常喜愛漢堡,就想為何不能將兩道餐點結合在一起。

全新漢堡以整塊6盎司的Prime等級之菲力牛排作為主角,其油脂呈美麗的霜狀分佈,味道、質地均屬上乘,向來是饕家們趨之若鶩的頂級美味,僅以海鹽及胡椒調味,並用爐烤方式烤至三至四分熟將鮮甜肉汁完全封存。

上面在放上以快火香煎成金黃色的法國進口鴨肝,再鋪上現刨黑松露片、白松露油、酥炸鮮洋蔥圈、鮮脆生菜與番茄,而採用的漢堡麵包是以帕馬森起士作成,起士香味隨著麵包出爐而香氣四溢,麵包上面再抹上特製黑松露美乃滋。每份1,400元。

NOT ground. Interesting. It's a steak in a bun, not a hamburger after all. I'm surprised. I was sure it must be a burger. To me that makes even less sense. Even if it's vastly overpriced, at least it makes sense to put a burger in a bun, but a steak? A good steak? I'd rather eat the bread on the side.

That's because you just DON'T love Taiwan enough!
I agree, though. And after seeing it, it is glaringly obvious that it is indeed just a gimmick to attract customers. It'll probably work, too. People here are suckers for fads, especially the nouveau riche searching for the next daft thing to spend their money on and ignorant enough that they're unaware they're actually just buying what is basically yer standard beef Wellington with a less appetizing crust.

I was always taught to salt steak AFTER sealing, to prevent the juices from running, by the way. But then, what do EYE know, being as how I'm not a cook.

Re: OT burger again

Haven't seen what it looks like, but there may be some miscommunication. If it's a steak burger then I assume the tenderloin steak is ground - which is fine. I often use fresh ground sirloin steak to make my burgers at home. Delicious. RT-Mart will grind the steak that you buy from them and repackage it, although curiously, Costco refuses to. If it's just a tenderloin steak on a bun, then it should correctly be called a steak sandwich instead of a steak burger. Either way, pay the price or don't - everyone's entitled to their choice. Some people will gladly pay $200NT for a beer at a club, while others would rather pay $31NT for that same beer at 7-11 and drink in in front of the MRT station. Nothing wrong with either.

It is in Temp for OT, not deleted.
