Rockpool was always been my favourite place for good steaks. The dry aged grain/grass fed steak sold at reasonable price is not something you need to yearn for.
I'm a student studying in Melbourne, with limited monthly budget, fine dining is not something i can attend to as often as Ms Jazz (who is filthy rich back in KL). So exquisite restaurants like Neil Perry's Rockpool is a rare occassion for me, sometimes to reward myself for my hard *cough* times. hehe
The setting manages to be dimmed and sexy. Dimmed and sexy also means that my photos are not the greatest, so apologies in advance as i have near zero knowledge on how to change my LX3 settings.
This is the second time i've ordered the same thing, as remorseful as i am, i would say, first time was so much more better than this trip. The meat was overdone for a "medium rare" and major parts of the meat surface are burnt!
Everyone knows that eating burnt stuff are cancerous, thus i wasted almost 1/4 of my entire steak to save myself from cancer!!
The texture of the steak was almost as horrible as eating steak from a local hawkers "western food" stall. Rubbery and tough.. It was really disappointing seeing that my first two visits were almost heavenly!! Chef must be having his bad day huh??
Hi guys! I'll be away for awhile, and will be back with more food goodies from S-H-A-N-G-H-A-I!! I'm packing 2 memory cards so we'll be sure to have loads and loads of gastronomic pictures coming up soon.
In the meantime, lets just hope that Crazieapple gets out of her laziness and actually blog about something soon. Perhaps within this century? *roll eyes* =D
Catch up soon! xoxo
