Beefed up@Arthur’s Bar&Grill, Shangrila Hotel, KL

image

Although I was given a bunch of 50% off beer promotional vouchers last year, they all got expired without me having a chance to utilize them.

A year later, the opportunity came to finally give this place a try. The ambience was rather cozy, comfy chairs, dark colours…I could chill all night long.

The bread appetizer was superbly yums! It came with a somewhat sun dried tomatoes dressing I think, which had a tingy, zesty, sour taste and went perfectly well with the freshly toasted bread.

As there only several small eaters around, we skipped ordering the tower Arthur’s burger and opted for their beef burger instead. It was served with the bun topper placed on the side.

I gotta say.. this was one damn good burger. The smokey, grilled flavour was locked in abd the meat was extremely tender, adding the kick with those nicely softened and caramelized onipns! RM48++.

The beef steak sandwich was about 2 times the length of a normal subway sandwich. We left most of the baguette aside as it was a little too hard and we had too much bread already.

The beef steak slices were just slightly dry but we did order medium well, I could still see the pinkish colour in the middle. The smokey peppery smell was locked in. It was quite well marinated and grilled.

If I were to eat on my own, I’ d probably order medium rare instead.

The good thing about both of these dishes were that the colseslaw thankfully tasted home made and the fries were fried fresh and too perfection. I had to hold back my temptation to take in more….the calories! Plus I had another heavy supper appointment after that. Phew.

All in all, the quality of food was quite good and the ambience was so cozy. Price wise it does add some sting onto your hands but for those willing to spend for a good burger chilling over beers and live bands wouldn’t mind!

Lah Kopi Klangite way@Chung Kok Kopitiam, India Street, Klang

image

Our Klang-ite friends brought us to this really old skool kopitiam at Indian street for a sip of Lah Kopi the traditional way. The place was packed to the brim and I was really surprised to know that there is a Muhibbah place that still exists in the big city! All races having a happy scrumptous meal together. This is 1Malaysia. Not the nonsense we watch on TV.

The coffee was really awesome. Not too sweet and not too bitter. Bittersweet memory indeed!

image

Toaste bread the old skool way. Whiffs of buttery kaya frangrance filled the air. I felt like a little kid again!

image

Apparently the banana cake is famous here too. Moist and very pungent aroma and flavour of mashed bananas. But this can’t beat the JB banana cake. Best I had ever eaten to date!

image

This kopitiam existed many decades ago, this old old uncle is still behind the counter stirring away the awesome Kopi. I am really humbled how hard he is working to make all his customers happy until today. Thumbs up to the uncle Lah Kopi!
