on the plate - El Fresco @ Jaya Grocer, Empire Shopping Gallery

A really short post today, about something I really love.

I love beef. I really do. I don't get to eat beef much here since it's really expensive, but once in a while it's worth splurging for. And this was most definitely worth splurging for.


That, my friends, is a massive cut of medium, juicy, tasty steak. Me loves :)

The best thing is that this place is right in Jaya Grocer itself. Why is that good, you might ask? What you do, is you go to the butcher (or fishmonger if you're into seafood), get what you want, bring it to the restaurant counter and pay RM6 for them to cook it for you and give you a side (salad, cooked vegetables or pasta). Simple as that. That massive steak which would have cost me easily RM120 elsewhere only hit me for RM38 or so. Incredible value.

They do other Italian classics as well, such as wood-fired pizzas and a really good wild mushroom soup. Highly recommended.

Food: 8/10
Drinks: 6/10 (mostly standard stuff)
Service: 6/10 (decent average service, nothing extraordinary)
Value: 9/10 (for steak and seafood lovers, you can't get better value than this unless you cook it yourself)
