Yelp Deputy Brunch at The Heliot Steak House

It was quite a surprise to see such a lovely restaurant set up inside a casino - the Yelp Elite Steak Dinner pictures last Wednesday, were a good teaser, but it was different to actually walk in.

You need to be 18 to enter the casino. And ids are checked at the door. Doesn't matter if you are over 30, they will still check id. So this is not a place to come with kids in tow.

But other than that, given the experience that we had today, I'd be willing to come back for brunch or dinner.

They have a fairly standard brunch menu and we got to taste 4 different items today. The Chilli fried egg and bacon brioche roll was my favourite, with its spiced chutney and rocket leaves. I'm always a sucker for Eggs Benedict for breakfast, they gave us the Eggs royale with smoked salmon and spinach instead of ham.

The jack stack with its French toast, waffle and pancakes was decadently sweet and a nice way to end the meal. The country fried steak was good, but I'm not a fan of deep fried steak. I could however see that the meat was good & I'd like to go back to try out the regular steaks. They also gave us sides of sausages, bacon and hash browns.

The berry bellini was excellent, the peach not so much.

We did eat a lot and I ended up just having a glass of milk for dinner, I'm still stuffed.

It was great fun to meet up with the other yelp deputies. Some I have met at other events and a few I was meeting for the first time, but its the love of food that makes conversations start out so smoothly and then progress on to other topics.

It was a Saturday brunch that made it worth skipping out off family lunch.
