What was brought out to me was the steak, a bare baked potato, and a tray of sauces and spices for the potato. I proceeded to load up my potato, especially from a bowl of what I thought was sour cream.
And then I took a big bite.
I didn't know that New York Steak was traditionally smeared with ...
... horseradish sauce.
Horseradish was never my favorite thing, but after that experience, the only thing that I find it palatable in, and only in very small quantities, is sashimi.
