FoCo steaks tend to come in two flavors: chewy and rare (red flank steak anyone?). However, this sirloin dinner was a pleasant surprise. The steak appeared to be cooked medium, and although its edges were somewhat fatty, it tasted good enough that no A1 was necessary. The cauliflower was fairly good, but the mashed potatoes tasted instant.

The Steak Quesadilla was a pleasant surprise. While FoCo's Mexican cuisine generally leaves something to be desired, tonight's quesadilla was both tasty and filling. The spanish rice had a good combination of veggies, and the right level of spice. Overall 3/5 FoCo Trays ().

The grill special today was nothing special. As I ordered it, the grill master joked, "It's an African in Siberia." I did not find the punch line comedic, but laughed so as to earn his favor and ensure the proper cooking of my meat. The Black Russian is roast beef with melted swiss cheese and thousand island dressing on rye. It tastes like a reuben with something missing - and the roast beef was chewy. While it's not recommendable it's also not one for the wastebasket. Next.

How many vats of oil does it take to run the FoCo grill you ask? Enough that a pumping system is necessary to keep it going. Unfortunately, the automatic drainage system was not working last night so one of the grill masters had to use the pictured manual pumping mechanism to drain the old oil. Does the old oil from your Joyo then go to the Big Green Bus?
