Last Sunday, I had a gathering with the usual photo gang (the old legs of Lowyat.NET D300 thread) for a meal at Meatworks in Solaris Mont Kiara. It was my first time there and well, let’s just say I found a good place to have nice steak at relatively affordable price.
Tim ordered a flat bread with feta cheese and chudney as starters, and he was kind enough to share it with the table. The bread was soft, not so sure if I was a fan of the two dips.
Sharon and I ordered another appetiser which was simply called, Scallops. We love scallops and these scallops were big and juicy. Full marks to Meatworks for doing seafood well! And you thought they were only good for steaks. With such juicy scallops, I didn’t pay attention the tomato bits they used as the sauce. Considering they didn’t make me think twice of finishing the scallops, I guessed they must have been good as well.
We also ordered one of the “Soups of the Day” and it was the French Onion Soup. Way too salty for me. It was like they used seawater for the broth. The onion taste wasn’t too overpowering so it could have been nice, if it was less salty.
Next, came the meat. We wanted to order the 1kg ribs on the bone but they didn’t have it. It was also known as the Brontosaurus and it was a signature dish. What a pity.
So I ordered the Sirloin. Medium rare and they got it right! I am a happy man. Plus points for the chef because many places get it all wrong. Bloody, tender and absolutely chewy. And the fat on the sirloin was also a delight. Just add a couple more kilos for me but it is ok. All worth it.
Sharon ordered the ribeye and she wanted it medium well. Looked a bit overcook to me but I think it was alright. She didn’t say it was too tough and when I ate some of it, it was alright. Maybe I got deceived by the colour. She ordered the special ribeye on the menu with extra horseradish and some funky name sauce which tasted just like my brown sauce. Oh well, but she got mashed potato to go along with hers.
And masher is always good. All in all, I would say that it was worth the price we paid. Almost RM150 for the two of us inclusive of drinks. Of course, the flat bread came free courtesy of Tim :P
I would go back there and I would definitely recommend this place. They just need a wee bit variety for their menu.
