S Kitchen Steak House @ First Subang Mall

A mall outlet that's empty on a Friday night might spell trouble, but it's not S Kitchen's fault: everything from the steaks to the service & setting is satisfactory.

Bask in the calmness, nibble the welcome bread with garlic-parsley butter & support an independent restaurant that needs & deserves it.

Beefing up this entry: Wagyu oxtail soup (RM25++), thickly evocative of Mideast lentil broths, with extremely enjoyable meat falling off the bone. Call ahead to reserve this; it's not consistently available, but it rates an absolute 'A.'

The burger boasts 250 juicy grams of an NZ beef patty in a crispy-fluffy bun with crunchy veggies & fat potato wedges (RM29++). 'B+,' with no egg, cheese or sauce required.

And the steak? A chew-worthy 'B' for 300 grilled grams of the Aussie 1824 sirloin (RM82++).

The remainder of the menu comprises what most steakhouses serve: smoked salmon salads, wild mushroom soups, lamb cutlets & the like.

Gold star for the RM30++ cocktails: Aqua Thunder (Wenneker Pisang Bagoes, blue curacao, soda, lime juice) & Kyoto (dry vermouth, melon, lemon juice).

  4. The burger scored higher than the steak? Looking at your photos, I would think otherwise...

  9. So with egg and cheese, the burger will be an "A-" at least? :)

  10. I've been there to the mall once or twice on Saturdays, and it is terribly quiet.

    Let's hope that more people will come to the restaurant to have a meal and start bringing radiance to the retail lots there. Too bad I'm not a fan of steaks. =/

    1. Waverly: ooo, I'm thinking maybe this mall might not be a food hub, but maybe it's a hub for karaoke and grocery shopping =) at any rate, yeah, I'm a fan of steaks, though since I'm approaching middle age, I shouldn't have it too often :D

  11. Maybe a different cut of steak can achieve a better grade from you?
