Meatworks @ Solaris Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur

Meatworks is another meat-shop cum restaurant at Solaris Mont Kiara that claims to serve premium halal meat. And one thing they are proud of is the use of locally sourced meats from Gemas in Negeri Sembilan. But just to be clear, the cows are actually brought in from Australia then grain fed at Gemas. So essentially it could still be considered more premium than any other local beef.

If you are a steak purist then you might not want to read further because the steaks here are served along with sauces. The Signature Bone In Fillet (350gm @ RM69) certainly scored high on presentation but lower on flavor and execution.

I ordered it medium rare but much to my dismay, they overcooked it to medium – almost medium well actually because I could hardly find any pink at all in the center. Then there’s this problem with the seasoning. The steak was poorly under seasoned and did not have much flavor going on. Without the much needed sauce, it was like chewing on a piece of bland tasting protein. But if it was any of consolation, at least the steak was really juicy despite being overcooked past its possible best.

burger

SL had the Meatworks B.Y.O. Burger @ RM26. It looks awesome and all with the thick 200g beef patty but it is definitely not the best burger in town. Even an average TGIF burger is better than this.

The main problem with the burger is with the patty. It was just too dry and also under seasoned like the steak earlier. I took a bite after having tasting my steak and all I could feel for the burger afterwards was pure sadness. An alternative is not too far away called The Pink Sage where I would highly recommend for a kick ass burger that is not only bigger (300g) but a whole lot better too.

The ambiance is pretty standard for a lot of restaurants nearby, clean and cheerfully bright. Selections at the meat counter should be OK but not if you are looking for Wagyu or Black Angus.

As much as I want to support Bolehland’s beef, I am really not impressed with the quality of the food at Meatworks. For the same kind of food at a similar price range there are simply too many better ones out there (think Las Vacas/Jake’s).
