Goodfellas Steaks and Burgers: The Godfather's Treat for Everyone

Gambino Family, Gotti's Cheese, Frenchy, Pat and Geno's Sandwich, Caesar Salad, Margherita Burger, Potato Chips, Michael's Prime, Goodfellas House Steak, Santino's, Jimmy Two Times, Flamingo Wings, Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, Pollo "Chicken" Rackettes, and WiseGuy Burger.

At first, you'll think I am talking about movie characters or what. Actually, yes. Kind of. This is what Goodfellas Steaks and Burgers is all about: good food with names derived from mafia movies. I really had fun doing the name game with co-bloggers, memorizing all the names from the menu and pointing each out for a spoonful reward of such.

Thanks to Annesy del Mundo for inviting us, bloggers to have dinner at Goodfellas Steaks and Burgers in Kamuning, Quezon City. It was a weeknight but I had no regrets going to the event. I really had one of the most satisfying dinners in my entire food blogging existence. No stir.

Here's a glimpse of what we shared together.

Flamingo Wings: otherwise known as the chili buffalo wings (P220 solo; P395 to share).

Jimmy Two Times: two-way porkchop served with mixed vegetables and rice pilaf or mashed potato (P295).
Gambino Family: shrimp salpicao (P425 to share). Just like what I said a hundred times, shrimp is one of my weakness so what's the fuss? Never mind the diet.
Gotti's Cheese: Mozarella sticks served with tomato salsa dip (P365 to share). I can say that it's better than my Monte Cristo.
Pat and Geno's Sandwich: famous Philadelphia Angus cheese steak sandwich (P220 solo; P275 combo)
Margherita Burger: 100 grammer charbroiled burger, roasted tomato, mozzarella, basil, and cheese sauce (P220 solo; P275 combo).
WiseGuy Burger: 200 grammer honey-cured bacon cheese burger (P295 solo; P345 combo).
Frenchy: steak fries (P120 to share). Just plain and salted, to prolly balance the taste of steak.
Potato Chips (P120 solo). Just like the Frenchy, it's plain and salted, obviously for the same purpose as the former.
Caesar Salad (P275). Meat, meat, and meat could be sickening, so here's a plate of fresh vegetables to neutralize the meaty sense.

And now, the great part is the Steak Part. I am more of a carnivore so meat really makes me weak to the bones.

Michael's Prime: 12-14 ounces U.S. CAB Prime Rib (P995)
Goodfellas House Steak: 8-10 ounces Angus House Steak (P345)
And for my order, I had Santino's. It's a 10-12 U.S. CAB Ribeye for only P975. As I shared it with colleagues, I found out that it is meat is more tender than Michael's Prime, and compared to Goodfellas House Steak, it's tastier. Because of their Santino's, I'll always come back at Goodfellas! 

They also offer meals for lunch, just like what Annesy made us try:
Sammy "The Bull" Gravano: sautéed Salchicha Hungaro topped off with mashed potato or Pilaf Rice & buttered vegetables (P185). The sausages are tender, juicy, and meaty with a perfect chili flavor; 
and Pollo "Chicken" Rackettes: barbeque-marinated Chicken Quarter served w/ side salad, mashed potato or pilaf rice & buttered vegetables (P185). It is perfect for those who want some protein-fiber-carbo loading to boost the day up.
