Ad: Food Review: Meatworks at Solaris Mont Kiara

Hey everyone :) I got bored so I thought why not write a blog entry? Today's entry isn't going to be very long (I think). I'm doing a review of Meatworks, a western restaurant that goes by the motto "For all your meaty cravings. And more". This restaurant is located at Solaris Mont Kiara. Basically if you love a good steak, this is the place to be. I've been there a few times now, so yes I would say it's pretty darn good. Now, where should I start? Ok, let's go for the decor. Love the look of the place; most of the furniture is white and made of wood. Everything looks simple, but neat and well-organised. It reminds you of home in a way. 

One thing that they can improve on is the air conditioning. In certain parts of the restaurant, you can't feel it at all but in other parts it's just freezing cold. It's something they should work on, but it doesn't bother me too much...unless I'm on a date haha. I don't think I'd appreciate sweat forming on my forehead, nor would my date :P  Anyway, on to the menu! They have quite an extensive menu. From steaks (sirloin, ribeye, t-bone, etc) to burgers & sandwiches, to fish, chicken, lamb and even pasta. They have a selection of appertisers and desserts too, but we normally skip the appertisers so I can't really comment on them. The only starter we occasionally have is soup! We've tried their mushroom soup and oxtail soup. Both were mmm-mmm good. Not the best that I've had, but still really yummy. If I'm not mistaken, the soup portion is quite generous. When I go there with my family, two of us usually share one bowl :) Soups there cost between RM15-RM19. A little pricey, but I suppose most restaurants of the same standard charge similar prices.

Ok so on this particular day that I went to Meatworks, I had the drool-worthy medium-well sirloin steak (RM50). Let me tell you, it was heavenly. I loved it. It was so juicy and tender, and it was cooked to perfection. The thing that I love most about their sirloin is that the cut of meat is served together with a little fat. I know it sounds super unhealthy but seriously, you MUST eat the fat. I don't know how they did it, I usually don't really like the fat the comes with the steak but I LOVE the fat that comes with the sirloin here. They put some sort of brown sauce on top of the steak. Some people may not like that, but I just loved everything about the dish. If you like your steak without any sauce on it, just tell the waiter when you order. The people working there are super friendly and provide excellent service :) The steak comes with a side of mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables. Both were good too. Seriously, I have absolutely no complaints about this dish. One thing to note though, you must order your steak the way you like it. If it's too rare for you, just send it back so that the chefs can cook it a little longer. You will not enjoy your steak unless it is cooked the way you like it :)

My sister ordered the mushroom melt burger (RM32). It looked so delicious, and it certainly tasted amazing too. The burger came with a side of fries. I know from the photo it looks like they're rather stingy on the fries, but honestly, after eating the burger I don't think you'd have much room left for the fries. I liked it, it was meaty and cheesy and mushroomy...mmm :D I would totally order it next time!

Does anyone like ribs? I know I do, but I can't be bothered to order it most of the time because it's just so messy hahah. I would love to order it for take-away and bring it home. Much more enjoyable. However, my mom decided to order some BBQ Spare ribs anyway. You can order 3 (RM50) or 5 (RM70) ribs :) My mom had 3 because she was trying to "watch her weight". hahah kidding kidding, she wasn't sure if she could finish 5, so she went for 3. She enjoyed it very much, I could see it clearly. She offered some to me and I happily accepted. Like the other dishes, their ribs were to-die-for. Very juicy and tender! 

I can't remember what my brother and dad had, but I think they also had the sirloin. Ok, so on to the desserts. They have a wide array of desserts to choose from, as you can see from the photos below.

We decided to have the tiramisu (RM13), creme brulee (RM15) and cookie monster (RM18). The tiramisu and creme brulee were pretty good. They were nice, but not as mouth-watering as the main meals. I was disappointed in the cookie moster though. It was basically just normal ice cream (though different flavours) with crushed oreo cookies on top. However, I had their apple pie before and it was really REALLY nice. One of the BEST apple pies I had ever had! 

So all in all, Meatworks is a lovely joint for people of all ages. There's great food (and quite reasonably priced for their portions!) and great service. Good atmosphere too. This is my favourite place to have steak so go ahead, give it a try :)

Verdict: 4.5/5

  4. I'm still staying in Taman Tun, so One Utama is more up my alley ;-) I can't recall how far it is from Solaris, but for me, if it's not within walking distance, it's far away, since I still can't drive :P

  5. Ahh i see, omg yea it's definitely NOT within walking distance from taman tun! ask your parents to bring you and your whole fam for dinner there one night! there's ample parking space at the basement car park, so no hassle there!
