Unquestionably, I am an adventurous eater. The list of things I won't eat is super short and forever shrinking. If I had a nickel for every time in my life that someone has said to me, "Eeww, are you really going to eat that?" I'd be a rich, rich woman. On my Ultimate To DO list I decided to add the (not huge) challenge of eating 25 things that might make other people gag.

This weekend I got to start by adding my first item to the list. We were having dinner at Savoy and I devoured, undoubtedly, one of the tastiest things I've ever put into my mouth. I ate steak tartar, and it was insane. But, I'm going to venture a guess that it might not be appetising for everyone. The mouthwatering mound of completely uncooked beef was served with a raw quail egg on top. Outstanding. I gotta say, the adventure was part of it's appeal. I could barely stop eating long enough to snap this picture with my phone!

I can remember just a handful of meals or even courses of meals in my life strictly because of the food. This tartar has been burned into my memory. I told the server that it was one of the best things I had ever eaten. She looked at me a little funny, but it was absolutely true.

So, while the thought of it may make some people gag... I ate it, and this steak tartar was totally delicious.
