It's somebody's birthday this month! heh..heh... So a celebration is in order. Must eat something special lah, eh!
A day before my birthday, my brother and I headed up to Steaks & Lobsters at Desa Sri Hartamas. This restaurant is now two restaurants in one with Rasa Gourmet, the highlight being fresh seafood (you can see tanks of live fish at the entrance). I did read about this on Sean's blog.
We were a tad early, so we browsed the menu while waiting. The Surf & Turf sure looked good.
We were rather tempted by the seafood on the menu as well (sambal petai prawns, siakap tiga rasa and assam pedas caught our eyes!).
They have nice desserts too. So what to eat? Since this is our first visit to Steaks & Lobsters, we had to have steaks and lobsters, right? We can always return for the local fare (definitely!).
We ordered from the Surf & Turf menu and both of us got the Wagyu Ribeye Marble 9 with half lobster (RM279.90). After all, this is a celebration. So let's make it special. This came with a starter of Portobello Fries and dessert was Spanish Churros.
These portobello fries were very good, very crispy and meaty served with a spicy BBQ sauce. We really enjoyed these portobello fries.
Ah! The piece de resistance! Our steaks and lobsters.
The steak was quite thin and cooked medium rare.
Can they get it medium rare on such a thin piece of meat? Upon tasting, oh yes! Very tender and succulent. I took a peek.
It was medium rare all right. We were both very pleased with the Wagyu ribeye. If there is anything I can comment, I thought it needed more salt and pepper. The sauce that came with the steak more than made up for the lack of seasoning although I did not really care much for it.
And now for Mr Lobster, served with a butter sauce.
We were given the tools required to crack the shell and there was an implement that looked like an oversized needle to dig out the flesh.
The lobster was fresh and meaty, no complaints from us although we both are more inclined towards prawns, specifically king prawns (next visit!).
Desserts! Spanish churros (they were super crispy) served with a sweet sauce (I could not make out what it was) and vanilla ice cream.
We were really, really stuffed by then. So stuffed!
