House-filtered still water - that's their description of it in their menu.
That day required my friends to arrive slightly later than expected (aka in Indonesian: ngaret) due to whatever reason yet traffic is quite unfriendly that day. Hearing me fuss about my friends resulted in my waitress for the visit offered me their pop-over while I wait. Their pop-over was nice: it was not too fluffy, yet it is still able to maintain structure.. I liked it the way it is. Then, I gave a small cut over the top and slap some butter into it. At this point it looked incredibly appetizing! Yum!

As my friends arrived, we ordered a lot of foods to share. We did not opt to order individual portions of steak due to the huge portions they have. For appetizer, we share a serving of their Equatorial Iceberg salad with blue cheese on the side coz Jess hates blue cheese! I liked their bacon bits...!

Next on the line-up is their Bone Marrow. I couldn't say much about this dish but I fell in love with it so much that I ordered it every visit. I dug the contents of the bone.. then I enjoyed the warm-soaked grilled bread with the onion broth provided. Oh!

Next on our list are their steaks and we ordered two of em. The first one is the Bone in Ribeye cooked to medium rare and the second one being the prime ribeye cooked to medium well.

Prime Ribeye to medium well
These two are delicious! However, there are room for improvement as the gang and I felt that the cooking temperature should've been the other way around between another (It is not the waitress' fault since we ordered it that way). We felt that the prime should've been cooked medium rare and the bone-in be cooked medium well. That way, I felt that it would be more delicious because the bone in rib eye was too chewy to chew at this temperature while on the other hand, the prime rib eye was slightly too hard to chew. Despite that, it was still very juicy and enjoyable. We also had a Mac n Cheese on the side.
Mac and Cheese with pork belly on the middle! Delicious!
Their portion might looked small in picture.. But it was actually huge and was quick enough to fill our tummies. Last but not least, I ordered their Pineapple Geleé Cheesecake FOR MYSELF AND NOT TO SHARE BECAUSE THIS IS MY FAVORITE.
Pineapple Geleé Cheesecake
Like I always liked to say.. the cheesecake was sweetened just right and not too sweet! (A rare occurrence in the US - for me.) and the sherbet was sour enough that it balances the sweetness of the cake itself. An awesome dish to wrap up my meal.
Overall, I had a splendid dining experience at Boston Chops. I can't wait to come back for more of their cheesecake and their steaks!
