We're going for some steaks today over at Maredo's Steakhouse, an Argentinean steakhouse, located in Crown Regency Hotel. Went there for lunch with my colleagues recently after hearing that they serves reasonabily priced set lunches.
Interior on the inner portion of the restaurant is a bit dim with loads of photos, paintings and statues that exude warmth to the large dining area.
We checked out the set lunch menu. There were 2 sets, Executive Set Lunch and House Set Lunch. Executive Set Lunch at RM45++ (5% Government Tax and 10% Service Charge) has 4 courses of buffet salad from the salad bar, a soup, main course of either beef steak or fish, dessert of the day and ends with coffee or tea. The House Set Lunch which costed RM24++; consists of buffet salad, 4 choices of main course (beef stew, baked fish fillet, spaghetti and rump steak) to pick from and iced lemon tea. Quite a steal I would say.
Since all of us opted for set lunches, we got to pick our salad from this salad bar.
The choices are pretty good and the selections are fresh. From this close-up, let me recall what were the choices, french beans, corns, tomatoes in olive oil, lettuces, cucumber, potato salad, fruits etc etc...
Since there were quite a number of us, we got a mixture of orders. So I'm going to quickly run thru the main courses. The following were the main courses from the House Set Lunch. This is the Grilled Rump Steak with Tomato Chimichurri, Manchego Cheese and Baked Potato. My colleague, Ed gave a thumb up for the presentation haha...
I had the rump steak too, done medium, which turned out good. The meat was tender... just look at the pinkish centre! Literally melt in your mouth. The Tomato Chimichurri made of tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar/lemon juice, garlic and herbs; is a popular sauce used in Argentina lent a refreshing taste to the steak rather than the usual brown or black pepper sauce.
SL's Spaghetti With Chicken and Asparagus. I didn't taste this but the smell that wafted over was great!
Y's Oven Baked Fish Fillet With Lemon Capers Sauce, Mashed Potatoes and Broccolli. Y said the mash was great but after a few bites and little digging, she noted that the fish was not thoroughly cooked. It was sent back to the kitchen for further cooking. The fish returned looking more tanned and of course cooked.
BamBam and PhatMan ordered the Executive Set that came with a tomato based soup, nothing special there they told us.
Both of them asked for the Grilled Rib-eye With Black Pepper Gravy, Jacket Potato and Vegetables of the day. Looked good to us. In this pic, the potato was missing and it came later.
Their dessert of the day... a mango mousse I think or was it a pudding. Whatever... PhatMan said it was delicious.
Some of today's pictures were taken with BamBam's new digicam, a Sony DSC-T10. Since it was his first day using the camera, he was still trying to familiarise with the functions and features. I would say it's a pretty nifty little thing.
