GoodFellas Steaks and Burgers

from The Godfather's official page

“I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse”
Vito Corleone, The Godfather                    

            Have you seen or read Mario Puzo's The Godfather? I have and I must say, it’s worth your time. Addicting, compelling and powerful. Just like GoodFellas Steaks and Burgers.

            At GoodFellas, you can feel a mafia ambiance—wooden floors, dark walls with stones and pictures of mafia movies, the stench of cigarette and the suspender-and-fedora uniform of the staff blends well. The menu looks like a Mafia storybook with the dishes named after outlaws, infamous crime families, characters from books and movies.

            Margherita Burger. Combo with Fries and Drinks. P275. 100 grammer charbroiled burger, roasted tomato, mozzarella, basil and cheese sauce. 100 grammer or quarter-pounder burger is oozing with cheesy goodness. As soon as it was placed in the table, you can savor the heavenly smell of basil and cheese. It tastes even better! [I’m drooling here.] It comes with GoodFellas own large-cut fries which is almost an inch in width.

            Carlito’s Way. P225. Angus Salpicao Rice. Small portions of Angus beef cooked medium-rare with mushroom and garlic bits served with garlic rice. It’s flavorful but not as tender as I have anticipated. Still good though as you can taste the garlic in every bite.

            Blue Lemonade and Raspberry Iced Tea. P45.

            New York Cheesecake. P130. This is the best cheesecake I’ve had in the country. Creamy, rich, dense and smooth—the closest thing I can compare to New York’s cheesecake! Ever since our trip to NY, my sister and I became too picky with our cheesecake but GoodFellas’ cheesecake is really exceptional.

            Only once have I visited GoodFellas and I only get to sample a few of their dishes but this one-time experience proved that there will surely be more to come. Next time, I’ll definitely try their steak.

            Visit GoodFellas Steaks and Burgers at #56 T. Gener corner K-1st Street, Kamuning, Quezon City.
