Oh for some juicy steaks

After 40 days in the desert on a vegetarian fast, I finally got myself back to eating meats. The first two days, I do have some bloating problems because my tummy probably have problems digesting all those tough meats. I still enjoy being on vegetarian diet because my skin is so much more better. Maybe it is the soya wakame drink that my friend, Samm of OrganicParade sent to me? I will blog about that soon. A protein rich drink that I took when I was on vegetarian diet.

Now, let’s take a look at juicy steaks which I missed. Actually, I don’t eat steaks that often because they are very expensive, tastes good only when done right and frankly, though I enjoy a medium rare, I do get a little icky seeing those pinkish juices.

This steak is my son’s order. He had a fillet steak and I couldn’t resist stealing a few mouthful from him. I suppose you can see from the cutleries where I ate this?

There is only one Victoria Station outlet here in Penang and since it is located somewhere in Bayan Baru, I haven’t been to the place for like four years already! Funny enough, none of their waiters, waitresses, bartender and even the chefs have left. Talk about employees’ loyalty.

Since we went to the PC Fair on Friday, we decided check out Victoria Station which is nearby. The place is the same, the staffs are the same and the food is well, the same. I.e. basic, no frills and what you see is what you get.

    Yaya, VS is always the best when it comes to steaks. I’ve ben to other steak houses, and none other comes close to quality and value for money 😀

    Not to mention they provide wonderful extra services if you mention that you’re celebrating someone’s birthday.

    That flat, wide cut of fries is called “steak fries” here. I guess they’re more likely to soak up the steak juice, because they don’t cook as crisp as shoestring fries (which I much prefer)

    i think Victoria Station has lost to TGI Fridays in terms of steaks.

    Haha I only had their JD lamb chop. But it’s the best lamb chop i ever had….needless to say, their steak should taste better.

    It depends tho. Some ppl go back certain restaurants not for food but for “kam cheng”…haha

    Jian – This one Victoria Station ler, no Jack Daniels.

    soleilina – But TGIF tends to over cook their steaks.

    Bradley – So, that’s how the fries are eaten? Now I know.

    Juandy – Ok, link up.

    samm – If you mean the one with the groundnuts all over the floor, got but I went only once.

    silencer – Yeah, the price seems to remain even after four years.
