San Francisco Steakhouse @ KLCC
Was feeling like eating at a classy Western restaurant while shopping in KLCC one day. There are many options in [tag]KLCC[/tag] but we settled at San Francisco Steakhouse, simply because I suddenly craved for [tag]steak[/tag] that time. And not to mention [tag]San Francisco Steakhouse[/tag] was a winner of [tag]Malaysia[/tag] Tatler best [tag]restaurant[/tag] not too long ago. So, I guessed it was worth to try at least. The ambiance was quiet and nice, with most of the patrons being foreigners.
After long consideration, I chose the Tiger Prawn with Lamb Cutlet which cost RM51.90. Expensive stuff.. in fact it was the most expensive ala carte dish I’ve ever ordered. Well, luckily it was well worth the price tag because of the huge portion of lamb. And most importantly, the lamb cutlet was very meaty and tasty – that mattered the most.
The tiger prawns were a little let down though, they taste like those freshwater reared ones. I would have expected San Franciso Steakhouse to actually serve tiger prawns captured from the sea which definitely have better taste and texture.
Potato Skin with Goat Cheese dip @ RM8.90. Nothing spectacular about this, the one I had at Ribs in Penang was much much better than this.
Some warm buns and “President” butter were served before our mains arrived. Even though they looked like nothing special, they tasted damn good to me lol.
Another main we ordered was Salmon with Fillet Steak @ RM35.90.
The salmon was nice but the same can’t be said for the steak. The fillet steak was a bit bland and dry and there wasn’t any sauce or gravy except its own juice.
Pineapple and orange juice – RM8 and RM9.50 respectively. So, the classy meal I wanted to have cost a total of RM131.35 inclusive of 5% tax and 10% Service Charge. This means RM17 alone was solely for tax and service charge.. that’s a lot! I probably won’t return again because the food wasn’t really that great. I felt like I was paying for the nice decor and ambiance more actually.

If you have been to the KLCC Convention Centre or the Aquaria, most likely you would have parked at the adjoining outdoor car park. If you did, then you should have noticed Top Hat Restaurant before. It is located along Jalan Stonor, somewhere near the car park’s exit. I had always wondered about the restaurant

Ever since I tried Maria’s excellent Western food and cakes, I have not been able to find another restaurant that serve such high quality food at a good value they are offering. Being a family business also means that they are personally involved in choosing the best ingredients as well as the cooking. Like for

**Nov 2001 update: Life Centre is undergoing major renovations but Munakata is still open for business as usual. About a year ago I went to Munakata‘s Japanese Buffet and I was happy with their authentic Japanese dishes served in the ala-carte buffet. Since then I have been to a couple of Japanese buffets with some

Hidden behind Istana Negara along Jalan Bellamy is an array of ikan bakar stalls next to each other forming a medan ikan bakar. Despite its secluded location it gets extremely crowded especially during lunch hour. Not knowing which stall to go for, we chose Gerai No.3 that was the busiest among all. Three huge frying

Not long ago I popped into Petaling Jaya for the weekend to meet up with my friend who stays at Aman Suria. Not far away from his house (walking distance in fact) is Betty’s Midwest Kitchen, a restaurant serving American styled food specializing in Midwest cuisine ranging from soups, sandwiches, to pork chops and burgers.
