My last week was hectic, with appointments and reviews back to back. On top of that, I struggled to redo my food articles which were due in the same week, no thanks to the idiot who took my bag. I had no time to see rif, and even when I did, I was busy with work. On Friday, he decided to take his (slightly deranged and overstressed) girlfriend to Victoria Station for a supposedly quiet dinner. At close to 9pm, I expected the crowd to subside, but it was quite the opposite. The place was almost a full house; good thing we were seated in the cabin, away from the crowd and noise.
I’ve never liked escargots, but rif insisted that I tried the escargots (1/2 dozen -RM 15.90) here. Generously topped with a garlicky cheese sauce, these snails were a delight to eat. I was very tempted to order another 1/2 dozen.
Tip: NEVER PICK UP THE ESCARGOTS WITH YOUR BARE HANDS. Use the utensil provided. Guess who got burnt while attempting to hold the shell? =_=
My sizzling steak (RM38.90) came with a garden salad on the side. The salad looked pathetic, so I didn’t bother taking a picture of it. Portion was sizable and the steak was cooked to a medium doneness. This was tender and juicy, and the gravy enhanced the flavour of the meat very well. The downside? I smelt like sizzling steak afterwards. rif’s Victoria Steak (RM38.90) was quite decent. I prefer this gravy to mine. It had bit of chicken inside, which I reckon, gave the gravy a better flavour and texture. However, I like the idea of eating my steak on a hot plate, so I would still order the sizzling steak (regardless of how I smell later on). Vanilla milk shake (RM5.90) wasn’t thick or rich enough. It also had a weird aftertaste. Dessert didn’t appeal to us, so we decided to skip it. Overall, the food wasn’t great, but the place still had a decent standard and the same old charm that I love.
Food: 6/10 (pork-free)
Verdict: Decent steaks at reasonable prices.
