The Steakhouse @ Changkat, Bukit Bintang Review

If you're one of those who enjopy fine dining, enjoy quality steak, then you should really explore this little gem that hidden in Changkat, Bukit Bintang. Who said you can't get fine dining along the street that full of bar? Anyway, courtesy to The Steakhouse, I am invited to join the food tasting session.

Established by German Chef expatriate Werner Kuhn, The Steakhouse is able to accommodate up to 40 people in it's restaurant. It is also worth to mentioned that The Whisky Bar is located right next to it, which gives it an advantage of having a larger selection of cocktails,fine wines and liquors as compared to if it were by itself. Werner Kuhn also owns several restaurants on the same street like Dining in The Dark, Werner's on Changkat and El Cerdo.

Nevertheless, this is what The Steakhouse offer us that day.

* Shrimp Cocktail RM 28 *

As one of the starters, we had Shrimp Cocktail. This gonna be my most favourite starters because it is full with prawns. Nop not the 2 big prawn as you can seen hanging on the glass, but there are more small prawns inside! The cocktail sauce just simply amazing plus fresh and chewy prawns served to us.

* Escargot RM 32 (6 piece) *

Next is Escargot Baked with garlic, herbs and butter. I guess this made me first time eating snail. With YOLO motto on myself, I just grab it and drill the meat from inside and eat it. Surprisingly it doesn't really taste funny. It blend perfectly with the garlic, herbs and butter, creating a very aromatic taste in mouth.

* Oyster Rockefeller RM 12/piece *

Our third Starters is none other than Oyster Rockefeller. It made together with spinach, fine herbs and pernod. My first time trying the oyster and slurp. Not my favourite as it taste very funny :/

* Fresh Live Oyster on ice with Shallot-Wine Vinaigrette RM9/piece *

Another type of oyster we had as starters, Fresh Live Oyster on ice with Shallot-Wine Vinaigrette. Again, I still don't like oyster XD This is why I damn cina man....

* Panfried Duck Foie Gras RM 42 *

Finally, Panfried Duck Foie Gras with fine bean and orange segments. One of my favourite too and recommended to everyone. It really melt into my mouth upon I put inside and superb rich in taste. I wouldn't mind take the whole plate for myself.

Here are the main course served to all of us. Of course, most of us are getting steak which are imported from Australia. We are given choices between Chilled Australian Grain Fed or the Aged Black Angus with 5 different cuts to choose from - Medallion, Tenderloin, T-bone, Rib-Eye and Striploin.

* Chilled Australian Grain Fed Rib-Eye (10oz/300gm) RM 78 *
* New Zealand Lamb Chops RM 68 *
* Grilled Black Cod Fish RM 58 *
* Chilled Australian Grain Fed Striploin (10oz/300gm) RM 68 *
* Chilled & Aged Black Angus Medallion (7oz/200gm) RM 98 *

Here are the sauces available to choose from - Black Pepper, Mushroom, Red Wine, BBQ and Bearnaise

Here what I ordered.

* Chilled & Aged Black Angus Tenderloin (7oz/200gm) RM 98 *

I got myself a Black Angus Steak Tenderloin. This definitely one of the best steak I ever had. Ordered it to be cook medium rare, this definitely a very juicy and tendered steak I ever had. Pair it with Red Wine sauce, definitely one of the steak I will never forget how it taste like.

* Belgium Chocolate Fondue RM 35 *

We had Belgium Chocolate Fondue as our dessert. Well it come with fruit of course ;P It chocolate was made with melted dark chocolate but abit disappointed that the taste wasn't rich enough. Hope they could improve it :)

* Andreas Special RM 22.50 *

Looking at Andreas Special remind me of 3 layers tea. I am not joking since each layer 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. Definitely worth to give it a try for ice cream lover. It is so smooth and melt well in your mouth.

* Classic Italian Tiramisu RM 22.50 *

Classic Italian Tiramisu definitely one of the best Tiramisu I ever had. The bitterness of the espresso powder volume just nice as if this cake was specially design to suit my taste.

* Baked Cheese Cake RM 22.50 *

Baked Cheese Cake served with a side of Vanilla Ice-cream and Blueberry sauce. Not the most cheesey cake I ever had but my deary found it pretty good though.

Overall, it was a good experience dining in The Steakhouse. They had good ambient of light, relaxing environment which made you forget about the time passed dining there. It was pretty leisure too able to chit chat with friends under such environment. Ahhh such an unforgetable moment :)
