So I did some living life tonight. Haha.
Went to Me'nate Steakhouse in Ampang tonight. It's located at Jalan Kolam Air Lama Satu, on a row of shophouses next to 7-Eleven, if I remember correctly.
This is my first time here. I heard about this place from my foodie uncles. They went here a couple of weeks ago, and whatsapp-ed me photos of what they were having. -____- The steak looked so so good. And since then, I've been wanting to try some. And since my mum didn't go with my uncles in the previous trip (only my sisters went), she was also very eager to try the wagyu.
|The photos my uncle sent.|
So, off we went tonight. Okay, don't expect a fancy restaurant. It is really a simple restaurant with barely there aircond and no ambience. So, no need to dress up in your best pearls, like I did. Sister forgot to mention this. Pfft.
But what they lacked in ambience, they make up in their steak. We ordered the wagyu tenderloin and grass-fed sirloin in medium well. Because we don't like 'em bloody. We also ordered a side dish of mushroom soup and pasta Aglio Olio Mussels. Hot drinks like Milo, teh tarik and Nescafe are complimentary.
The soup came first, along with two garlic bread. The soup is nothing to shout for, but the garlic bread were yummy. It was crunchy but at the same time really soft. You can taste the creamy tangy garlic butter from the generous spread.
Then came along the star of the meal. One bite into the wagyu sends you straight into food heaven! It is so tender, it melts into your mouth. It is prepared in just salt and pepper, but the meat is exceptionally tasty and juicy. If I dare say so, this is even better than the wagyu I tried in Prime Steak Restaurant in Le Meridien.

|Aglio Olio Mussels. Sister said it was much nicer the last time she tried it. This time it's a bit too dry.|
The grass-fed sirloin, in my opinion, were okay. Still tasty and juicy, but the wagyu stole the attention away from the sirloin.
The steaks came with a huge portion of coleslaw, long beans and mashed potatoes. It also came with a side of black pepper beef sauce, but the steak were so good just on its own.
I have to admit that I've always preferred my steaks to be prepared the Malay way - you know, where the meat is swimming in the sauce of your choice. So, I had a lil' bit reservations when my sister told me that Me'nate's steak is prepared in just salt and pepper, and no sauce! *gasp*
But, this is definitely an exception. YOU MUST TRY FOR YOURSELF!
I think the price is quite reasonable as well. We paid rm238 for the wagyu, sirloin, pasta and mushroom sauce. Not too bad ey?
So, STOP READING AND GET GOING!
