Short review on my belated father’s day dinner at Jake’s Charbroiled Steaks at Medan Damansara. This is the original Jake’s since 1982; it has a branch at StarHill opened not too long ago. Let’s dive straight into the food review. Mom had grilled salmon (RM38.90). She’s rather particular with fish, any slightest fishy stench will render the dish inedible. However, she didn’t complain on this one, definitely a good sign. The salmon is accompanied by flavored butter and a dollop of caviar. The butter went extremely well with the fish. No tartar or chilli sauce required. I ordered an Australian aged tenderloin steak, medium-well (RM63.90). with a few twist of blackpepper, the steak was ready to be savoured. It was exactly how I wanted my steak to be, not too pink but sufficiently tender. The flavor of the beef tickled my taste buds in all the right spots. The fiancé’s ribeye steak was mediocre (RM58.90, not pictured). It’s alright but nothing to shout about. So, skip!The best order of the night was aptly Dad’s steak, Black Angus ribeye (RM88). It was one of the best steaks ever! Cooked to medium, it was so juicy and succulent. The taste and texture of the beef simply blows your mind. All the dishes at Jake’s are very simple, served with veg and potatoes. Brown/black pepper/mushroom sauce is not needed; the quality of the meat and the seasoning is enough to bring the steak to perfection. Skip the desserts tho. The chocolate brownie (RM9.90) is really just chocolate sponge cake with melted chocolate on top. Honestly, this is one of the worst brownies I’ve even eaten. At jake’s, stick to their good old uncompromised steaks.
Like the millions of others, we live a simple life. Moon is my wife. Moon and I have nothing really in common except we both possess the same passion for food. Come to taste, I must say that my taste bud is not as adventurous as hers, she likes to venture exotic food which I don’t! For me, Chinese food rocks!
While our jobs keep us extremely tied up and constrain us from exploring things that intrigue us, we feed on reading people’s blog. This also inspired us to start our very 1st blog. We kicked off with our first post on F-O-O-D, which naturally becomes the core topic of our blog. Nothing could be better, right!? No matter where we are what we do, we EAT. In modern day, food is far more than essential, food keeps all of us stay connected to each other, food becomes consolation to get nostalgic for lonely person who stays abroad….
Being a noob in this era, we are groping for improvement, we welcome your feedback and comments of goodwill. Last but not least, we would like to express our gratitude to our two other guest bloggers Ying and Joelle for their “mouthwatering” contribution.
