In Changkat Bukit Bintang surely is a well known street to many of you. Street party, Bar HOpping & good food is where all those headline would fall into this one street. By strolling up and down this street you will find yourself being harrest by all these aggressive bar people to get you into their outlet. Of course there are some other outlets that approach you in a more friendly polite manner. IT really depends.

The Steakhouse (1)

One of the most recent visit is The Steakhouse by Werner Kuhn’s establishment and I am sure many of you have heard this well known pork place in the area – El Cerdo. Its the same owner as you just need to walk across the street. This place would be my second visit and make no surprise to me that on weekdays the restaurant is on 80% capacity also known as one of the best place to hunt for steak in Changkat Bukit Bintang.

The Steakhouse (2)

The Steakhouse (3)

If you are looking for a place with 1 stone kill 2 bird then The Steakhouse is one of the restaurant to consider as it is also part of The Whiskey Bar that seriously offer lots of whiskey that my jaw would drop off. If you look/ read thru their list you will be amazed on what kind range they are providing.

The Steakhouse (4)

Its a connected place whereby one outlet offer classy bar seating area and next door is more for dining.

The Steakhouse (5)

This is what I mean that they have a few cabinate that display most of their available Whisky and they have a lot of classic and 25 years old or even more than that available in here.

The Steakhouse (6)

AT their bar counter, there are mountains of opened whisky that you can order by shots.

The Steakhouse (7)

Not only that, if you love cigars then they do have it here and you will enjoy it by sipping on your whisky.

Heading back to The Steakhouse as the menu is pretty straight forward. As what You see now is the only menu that they are offering. 3 pages as the last page is desserts.

The Steakhouse (10)

Being at such a bar before heading to Whisky, I started off with Cocktail ..

1) Margarita @ RM28 pretty decent as I find that the alcohol is very much strong and hint of lime is slightly visible.

2) Whisky Sour is one of my favorite drink. Easy to drink and lemon skin slices being added in to enhance on the taste. It pairs well with most of my starters. I had 3 glass. 😀 @ RM28

3) Classic Mojito @ RM28 is a well balance alcohol with mint leaves is sufficient enough to pull up the taste of it. .

The Steakhouse (11)

Next I ask the floor manager what is good to have next then he introduce drinks from Spain.

1) Rose Raspberry Sangria @ RM28

2) White Wine Pear Sangria @ RM28

Both are equally good and consider one of the best I have tried so far or maybe it suits my taste bud. A well balance of alcohol with fruits and among that 2 I prefer the White wine Pear Sangria more as its a bit alcoholic yet I can still taste the sweetness of the fruits being added in. Not only that, its chill enough and pretty refreshing. It goes well with my salad, Oyster and very very well with my escargot.

The Steakhouse (12)

Upon ordering our starters, we do not know what to get and the manager highly recommend us to get their Oyster as its fresh and flown in a day ago. We order without any hesitation and no regret after all. I am not a big fan of oyster but I ended up having 5 pieces myself. ITs so sweet and tasty just with squeezing a bit of lemon and 2 drops of tosbasco.  1 Fresh Live Oyster on ice with Shallot-Wine Vinaigrette RM9/piece. If you pair this with the right choice of white wine, it will be a bomb!

The Steakhouse (13)

Came next is Portobello mushroom with spinach & seafood @ RM26 per piece which I find it reasonable as coated with aromatic baked cheese serve along with big size mushroom and prawns.

The Steakhouse (14)

Something tone down abit your taste bud would be Caesar salad as they served their version here slightly different. Instead of using bacon, they are using smoked duck to enhance the taste of it also its slight chewy. One of the reason they using this also wanted to hold onto their Pork FREE status.. RM26

The Steakhouse (15)

Wow wow.. Looking at this picture makes me droll again as this is one of the places that serve really good escargots. It was baked perfectly with garlic herb butter and cheese. It was so aromatic upon it was serve and its perfect in taste as it smells that the snail is a bit chewy and did not over cook it and we drink the whole thing especially on the garlic herbs sauce that left behind. A MUST ORDER! RM 12 per peice

The Steakhouse (16)

Before we head into our red med, Duck Foie Gras is the last to serve. Nicely done = and the foie gras are still moist paired in chef’s special sauce. RM42

The Steakhouse (17)

The soup are prepared ahead and then baked in oven with melted cheese on top of the croutons.  RM22

The Steakhouse (18)

The Steakhouse (21)

This is one of the dish would falls into my very highly RECOMMENDED dish. I love this dish as I have tried a very good one over sea and locally its still hard for me to find one and I must say, finally I have found something that I like. YOu must not miss this dish when you are here as the potato rosti being pan fried till crips on both side and soft in the inside also as the side serve with beef stripes are tender and. Mushroom sauce taste pretty good too.

The Steakhouse (19)

BBQ Short Ribs @ RM78

The Steakhouse (20)

On my last visit, I did order this and this round order this again as I find it very good. Season well, then went into grill till the outer layer end up with grill mark yet inside is cook just nice. The meat is so soft that just by using fork, it easily tear off.

The Steakhouse (22)

Grilled Black Cod Fish @ RM58

The Steakhouse (24)

Black Angus Tenderloin @ RM98

The Steakhouse (25)

Cook to the condition as I like medium rare and the steak is still juicy with the mark left behind too as the hot plate is still grilling on the beef while you are eating. Juicy and tender.

The Steakhouse (26)

I am very full till now then flipping thru what whisky set I should try, Full Japanese series or full 18 years old series. Ended up trying both.

The Steakhouse (34)

Serving the whisky takes a bit long as you all might know that its just pouring on a shot or 2. Well, one of the reason as they have this very unique kinetic mechine help to shape ice, just by putting a square cube of blog ice in the middle then let the top cover do its magic.

The Steakhouse (36)

Tadaa… after about 3 minutes it had been shape up like that to be added into the glass and serve with the set.

The Steakhouse (27)

Japanese Tasting Set which consist 4 different years whiskey on your tasting tray. Each were explained on its characteristic and tasting method. Please do not spoil this great whisky with coke as many of you do. ITs either on neat or mix with water. On this tasting series is the Japanese Suntory distillery’s famous Yamazaki, Hibiki and Hakushu ranging from 12 to 22 years. In here still Yamazaki is the winner for me.

The Steakhouse (29)

Next tray is Perfect 18 means 5 taster of 18 years old whisky from 5 different whisky disstealeries

The Steakhouse (37)

Last but not least, when you are full till like a fat pig could not walk, who say you cant eat anymore! There is always room for dessert no matter how your full condition is. Love the Mango taste and the original is not bad too.

The Steakhouse (38)

Tiramisu @ RM22.50

The Steakhouse (39)

Baked Cheese Cake is pretty decent as its soft that can still taste on the cheese not too thick either. @ RM22.50

The Steakhouse (40)

Looking at their own dessert signature series, Andreas Special on the left come with difference ice cream! It come with white chocolate ice cream, milky chocolate mousse, chocolate crumble, banana in passion fruit and pear in red wine. If you are slightly adventurous and would want a slightly well balance taste then don miss this. AS Andres special (left) have a quite well balance taste with sour, sweet, and slightly bitter end then you must hunt this down!

 

The Steakhouse (41)

Werner and Andreas Special @  RM22.50 each

As the dining came to an end I discover that their most expensive beef is not the best I have had and I find that The Steakhouse have its advantage as the one slightly cheaper taste better for me. Moist, juicy and just right! Since everything is juicy, our receipt also very juicy.

I get to know KL Live as a place to hang out for events with their huge club space on second floor. As the place now had went over major renovation and currently host a few F&B outlets that is quite promising. One of the outlet is Dirty Nelly that serve nice Non-Halal Meal, that is quite well known over their Damansara branch. I guess, by opening at this place is good news for KL people or those who work nearby.

Dirty nelly (1)

I got curious about their name and ask how did they actually come out with the name itself and here is how the story goes:

Over a hundred years ago, a middle aged farmer and his faithful pig, Dirty Nelly lived in a small village in Northern England which was engirdled and secluded, for the most part untrodden as yet by tourist or landscape painter. It was a fact known to all that Miss Nelly was the oldest in the land, even the border Reiver clans of Southern Scotland had no doubt on the subject.

One unfortunate day, the village was cursed with famine. The crops were dying and the villagers were starving. Having nothing to eat himself, the farmer stood before Dirty Nelly, and contemplated. Finally, he made up his mind to sacrifice Dirty Nelly for the sake of the people. It was a relief to the others for Dirty Nelly was so large that she fed the village for an entire week which regained the villager’s morale and uplifted their spirits.

Yet, at this new age, few understood and still fewer knew this but with that, that little village went on to prosper… [Sourse from: Dirty Nelly website]

It is a huge outlet with many bar tables and dining area that can accommodate.

This restaurant always caught my curiousity to try on the restaurant as the place seems okay and quite crowded occasionally. So it was Saturday and do not know what to eat then thought of this restaurant and need to get someting at Sg.Wang also. It was quite empty when I reached. So chose to sit on the swing area.
Usually in a restaurant when I saw there is a ‘Jasmine Green Tea with pearl’ I would just order it. The taste of course would not too sweet. The pearl is very nice, not too soft but very chewy. The kind that I prefer. RM4.90

My friend she ordered Fizzi Ribena with Lemon’. It is quench thrist drink. So refreshing after drinking it. Not too much Ribena syrup on it and just nice and the lemon taste with the ribena goes along well. RM5.50 which I think it is kinda expensive for Ribena and a slice of lemon.

In the menu, there is not much food to choose from.

In the menu, what looks interesting in the picture was this ‘Crispy Chicken Rice’. It came out someting similar on the picture but with dissapointment on the taste, it is not good at all. The chicken slice is so thin till like you are eating the crispyness of it all the time. The gravy sauce taste geli. More like a clear watery mushroom sauce. Ended up did not finish the meal also.RM11.90 for this.
My order was ‘Curry Laksa‘ as I suddenly crave to eat that on that moment. When it came, I asked my friend did I order curry laksa or tomyam soup. Then ask the waiter and he said that it is Curry laksa. Shit!!! I have never seen curry laksa which is so watery till like tomyam soup or prawn mee. By the look itself already can judge that it is no good.
Both of us was staring at it and I take my first sip of the soup. As expected. With big disappointment!!! In the bowl have only a few pieces of chicken cubes, the long beans taste no good, the soup is so watery just like you boil a bowl of hot water and just add on some of the paste you can get it in Giant or Carrefour. I order Bee Hoon and Mee then ended up with Bee Hoon. I did not finish my food also. Too hard to swallow. RM8.90(not worth at all)Please change name to Chicken Mee or Tom Yam soup with added Chili in it.
In this restaurant, to go for a drink it is definitely good. But to go for the food, me and my friend totally no next time. BANNED!!!!
After that we decided to head to the second stall for desert on the other end.

Wow, I just could not believe that I would travel so far for lunch as I was told that there is a nice food in that area so just fly by…As when I walked in, I was like ‘Wow!!! so many people here, guess that the food must be nice’ on second thought or it is the nearest place to eat here. Lol. On the menu, they have a set lunch set so decided to try by, since I see so many people order where as when I saw in the menu, the lunch is very reasonable…..
One of my friend order Marmite Chicken Chop Rice’ when it got served it look someting simple yet tempting, but seriously….the flavour of the chicken is nice~ Nicely deep fried and a bit of spicy, the taste is there. Just cost RM8.90 for the set lunch set as it comes with a drink. So okay lah~

Wah lau~ this I must say my most highly recommended Charboil Chicken Chop’ grilled to perfection, no burn on the chicken, soft and tender and of course the best part of all is the Mushroom sauce gravy. One gravy is not enough, ask for 2!!!! to satisfaction~ RM11.30 for this lovely dish. My next target is the chicken chiiop~~

This is what I have order in the set lunch set which is Teriyaki Rice’. Should not have order this when it came I was asking my friend, what did I order ha? Vegetarian set ga? they laughed. It was the teriyaki cabbage more than the chicken. Well, It just just normal on this dish, not salty enough, the chicken is nicely cooked but then aiii..okay la..cuz tried the 1st and 2nd food nice already and it comes to mine, you know..a bit down~ Well, my set cost RM10.90.

Overall, I think that the western food is nice. Next round will come and try it. Tempting~

Revisit this restaurant as it has been years since dine in here. It was about 4-5 years back when my buddy’s sister brought us here to eat and as I remembered it does not look like this. They have renovated. Decided to try again here.

It was during in the afternoon lunch time, so there were not much people in this restaurant but it is sure nice to sit and chat with friends here. From the food wise, I would rate it something like Madam Kwan.

In the drinks menu, what caught my attention was this, ‘Coconut Mint Float’. Something unique. If you are here, I would highly recommended this drink. Has a scoop of ice cream and blended of the coconut meat and the taste of the mint and coconut goes along very well. Was not too sweet, just perfectly good for a refreshing drink price at RM8
For the ‘Chicken Chop Set’ comes with a bread. The bread was warm and just toasted but it do not have the bread taste and smell. The bread is not nice. Taste so plain even with the butter.RM15.50

The chicken chop sure do look very plain. It is like you can get it in any of the roadside or coffee shop western food. Looks even better. It is perfectly fried with the crust is crispy. The chicken cooked is soft on the inside. The veggie is nicely steam.

My order is the Nasi Bojari. I can’t take beef so change to curry chicken piece. I must say that this is a bad food. To compare with Madam Kwan, it is 10x much nicer. The cannot be denied that the chicken is nicely fried but it has a strong chicken smell, which did not wash properly and it was very salty. The curry chicken is so thick in ‘santan‘ taste which make it a bit too sweet for it. The ‘Nasi‘ is very dry and very salty also. I think the salt in the restaurant is very cheap. The prawn was not fresh and I did not finish this dish. Total FAILURE and it was very expensive. RM21.

Since the chicken chop is so dry and did not comes with a gravy so order the ‘Mushroom Sauce’. In my life I have never eat before such a bad mushroom soup. Which the taste has very strong Chinese herb in it. Do not taste anyting like mushroom soup. More like when we have fever and you go to Chinese medicine shop and you boil it. Here, drink it all. Something like that. It cost RM3
‘The Cendol is a complimentary from the Chicken chop set. The taste of it is not bad especially the brown sugar syrup but the sad thing is the ice blended out is so rough that the more you take, it might damage on your upper throat. If you were to order it cost RM5

Well, for lunch it was a bad experience for the whole food which compare to 4-5 years back they are much nicer. So will temporary BANNED this shop at the moment with its pricing I would rather go somewhere else to have a better and nicer food. The bills comes in total around RM57.
