Eats in the USA: Hungry Hunter Steakhouse (CA)

Three months have already passed but I can still vividly remember devouring the most amazing steak I have ever had in my years of existence. The day started out great as we were on our way to Yosemite, a national park in Northern California renowned for its majestic cliffs and waterfalls. Halfway to the park, we learned that due to bad road conditions, travel time to Yosemite would take about 4 to 5 hours more. So with a heavy heart, we decided to turn around and cancel our booked hotel and look for an accommodation on the way to Las Vegas.

CS was already driving for hours after checking out from Hotel Nikko in San Francisco and even if he says he's fine, I can sense that he's already tired and sleepy. We passed by several towns and agreed on spending the night in Bakersfield as recommended by the Agoda staff I spoke over the phone when I requested to cancel our initial hotel booking at Bishop, California.

After confirming our room at Four Points by Sheraton Bakersfield, I checked Tripadvisor on the best restaurant in town and saw Hungry Hunter Steakhouse on the top of the list.

The lovely staff at the reception graciously welcomed guests and when it was our turn, she asked another lady to usher us to our table right in the middle platform. When we were seated comfortably, the same lady handed us the hardbound menu and patiently answered our queries.

What we ordered

Red Iced Tea

Top Sirloin - $22.99

The 9 oz. center cut Angus top sirloin is flame broiled to its juicy perfection. Included in CS' order was his choice of steamed vegetables, red skin potatoes and crispy onion battered green beans.

Whenever CS travels to the US on business, he always talks about these great steaks that literally melts in his mouth. He even sends me before and after photos of his order just to confirm how good his food was. These great steaks usually costs about Php1,500 and up, which is quite on the same range as the good steaks offered here in Manila. So when the opportunity presented itself, he did not hesitated on bringing me to one of the best steak houses in California.

Prime Rib - $24.99 (Petite cut, medium rare)

Hands down the best prime rib on the planet, Hungry Hunter's offering are hand selected from the finest mid western corn fed beef with unique seasonings and slowly roasted to client's cooking preference. For my choice of side dish, I had crispy fried onion rings and red skin potatoes.

With its outstanding service and excellent food quality, there is no doubt that Hungry Hunter Steakhouse is one of the best restaurants we tried during our US trip. Just make sure you leave some space for dessert when you visit because I heard their peach pie is amazing!
