Manhattan Fish Market. San Francisco Coffee. Marrybrown.
What do all these restaurants/eateries have in common?
Well, they all sound very Western, but are actually Malaysian.
Idk if this whole ‘overseas’ thing appeals to Malaysians more, but they’ve surely been successful at fooling a lot of people into believing that San Francisco Coffee is really from America! :P
Now we can add another one of these angmoh-sounding-but-not-angmoh restaurants to the list: namely the New York Steak Shack. Specialising in cheap steaks and affordable western food in a casual American diner setting, the brand has been around for a couple of years and have outlets in some major shopping malls in the Klang Valley.
Bel and I recently dropped by the newly opened outlet in Sunway Pyramid for lunch.
Sorry, no pictures of interior because we sat outside. :x Steaks were kinda heavy for lunch, so we got other food instead.
(Above) Bel’s Honey Fried Chicken Salad (only Rm11.55!) came topped with a humongous deep fried chicken patty and vegetables enough to feed a small army, drizzled over with dressing. The chicken was crunchy on the outside, typical of breaded crusts, while the dressing was a sweet and savoury. The veggies were pretty fresh too. All in all, a satisfying salad. Couldn’t finish it so we got a doggie bag to go.
I had the Tangy Fish Sandwich (RM13.67) – a soda-battered filet with mustard sauce, served with a random side of salad and mashed potato in gravy. The buns were buttered and a tad too oily, but the fish filet was battered well. Crispy on the outside with flaky soft white fish meat. Mashed taters was pretty good too. Everything was served on a flat wooden spoon plate with a handle for easy eating.
All in all, the food was decent and most importantly, the price is not expensive for the quality and atmosphere. Have yet to try their steaks, so maybe another time. :)
