It was a carnivore’s day out on a lazy Sunday. We hunted and craved for steak, beef ribs, t-bone and fillet, even the kids were hungry for meat…So, since we are celebrating the birthday of the youngest and most powerful person in the family, the lioness suggested that we should hunt for meat to celebrate. Not just for the little one, but the birthday was for the grandma lioness, aunty lioness and the lion himself, the father of the young one.
The restaurant, owned by the husband of one of our women ministers was opened in Citta Mall since August this year. Since Citta Mall is new, we decided to have Amar’s birthday dinner there with the anticipation that there will not be many people. Lets look at the restaurant first.
Meatworks Citta Mall
Inside Meatworks (Nice huh?)
It has a mini supermarket!!
Menu book cover
Rib eye – as seen inside the menu book – Would you expect any different from actual food?
These are some of the drinks we ordered:
(Left to right) – Strawberry and Chocolate milkshake RM12.80 each, starfruit and watermelon juice RM9.80
The food that we ordered:
Fondant Potatoes RM12 - Sauteed and served with corned beef silverside – I love this!!
Onion Rings RM12 - Battered and deep fried
Mushroom Soup RM15 – sedappp!!
Tuwin ordered this - Mushroom Melt RM32
Abang ordered this: Meatworks Junior Steak RM18 – As described in the menu book: 100g sirloin steak grilled to perfection and served with creamed mash potato, buttered organic carrots and BBQ sauce, but, where are the carrots?
The meat picture below is how rib eye, sirloin, fillet looks like……eh…
Rib Eye RM58 for 200g, Sirloin RM50 for 250g, Beef Fillet RM59 for 220g, T-Bone RM45 for 400g, Bone In Fillet RM69 for 350g prime rib
Jap, cer scroll atas balik gambar rib eye tadi….mana broccoli?, mana fries?……eh, ini sudah tak betul ni….and so I called the waitress, she was very nice and polite. She described to me that the picture is just for illustration purpose only…..’oohh ye ke’’…I just smiled…(Dalam hati: abis tu, why do you put the picture in the menu book if you serve another thing to customer, isn’t that called deceiving?)…macam you letak emas dan permata dalam menu book, sekali dapat perak jer……oh well, since we do not want to make a scene, we just accepted all our steaks…..which all of them looked exactly the same…
Another steak, but this is well done
Roast Chicken (quarter chicken) RM20 - As described in menu book: A spit-roasted chicken served with organic vegetables from Cameron Highlands ideal for 2 to share……betul ke ‘organic’ and from Cameron?…(I’m beginning to doubt)
So, korang bolehlah pertimbangkan whether nak makan di Meatworks ni atau tak, service memang tip top but the food, I can just give 3 out of 5 with the exorbitant price (at least to me lah…just my opinion). Seriously, I have tasted better steaks. But, don’t fret, the ambiance and your friends’ company may overcome this minor dissatisfaction.
