Last week was awesome, good food, good music and of course being around with good friends. Well in my case, my aunt and cousins :).
Since I’ve been to 2 good restaurant last week, I shall now review the food and service (*insert suspense music here*). I admit it that I’m not exactly a food connoisseur but even a commoner like me knows when the food is good or not.
Everyone knows this place at KK, it’s a popular joint for people to hangout, drink and probably dinner as well. I’ve been to this place a lot time before, usually to hang out and drink good cold beer. I’ve been warned many times before that the food there is awful and I never really bother to order food there since the price is a tad bit expensive for me.
Upperstar Grill and Bar, ring a bell? It’s situated near to the Segama, Burger King with branches at Lintas and Damai. I’m absolutely sure KK people know this place.
First before the food…the Cam whoring session.
My uncle and his lovely wife.
Dim lighting, probably to set up a romantic relaxing mood but the music is playing noisy pop hits so bad combination. A dangerous place to pick up girls/guys they might look very different in real lighting.
The service, quite pleasant enough although there’s a few rude waiter. I certainly don’t appreciate being peeked while I’m walking up the stairs and also I find it is rude talking out loud about me.
On to the food… The price is quite reasonable for a place like Upperstar of course a few more RM on the price but I’m satisfied. Of course I’m not paying for the dinner (I already mention more than 100 times how dirt poor I am), Nancy (my aunt) treated us for dinner that night. Thank You!!! You’re the Best!!!
Nancy and I picked the same meal and we were satisfied with it, although it was a bit too much for us. We couldn’t finished the steak.
My uncle pick was a well done beef tenderloin for the night. Asian rarely pick rare or medium when it comes to steak.
Looks yummy!!! The potato wedges is yummy and don’t be fooled by the tenderloin’s size it’s actually quite fulfilling. Cost only RM22.90.
And Guess what Amy (my uncle’s wife) picked?
Sirloin steak… Cost only RM19.95…
To be honest I don’t really know the difference between Lamb chop, sirloin or tenderloin. Being Asian I am rather clueless about the difference, all I know that it’s a steak and it looks almost the same except for the name. So I google it and look what I found out about it;
A beef tenderloin, known as an eye fillet in New Zealand and Australia, filet in France and fillet in England, is cut from the loin of beef. As with all quadrupeds, the tenderloin refers to the psoas major muscle anterior to the transverse processes of the lumbar vertebrae, near the kidneys. This muscle does very little work, so it is the most tender part of the beef. The tenderloin can either be cut for roasts or for steaks. Tenderloins from steers and heifers are most common at retail, but those from cows are common in foodservice applications, such as less expensive steakhouses.
A meat chop is a cut of meat cut perpendicularly to the spine, and usually containing a rib or riblet part of a vertebra and served as an individual portion. The most common kinds of meat chops are pork and lamb. A thin boneless chop, or one with only the rib bone, may be called a cutlet, though the difference is not always clear. The term "chop" is not usually used for beef, but a T-bone steak is essentially a loin chop, and a rib steak a rib chop.
Next time I’m going to a steakhouse, I am no longer clueless about the menu. I won’t be bothering Ed with silly questions.
We ended the night after a lengthy conversation about how we would design a restaurant. Nancy actually came up a pretty good idea about it. Hopefully in the future we can make it happen and I’ll be inviting all of you to dine there.
Man, this post really made me hungry… I haven’t eaten anything yet since this morning. Owh well… I better go and make myself an instant noodle lunch. See you guys around…
p/s: went to Fresco for dinner the next day, will blog about it later.
