So lets dig in to my meaty dinner !

Before we start out meaty journey, we were served with the soup and appetizer.

Cream of Mushroom Soup.

The soup was a very creamy and tad oily in someway. However, you can feel tiny bits of mushroom all well-blended in the mushroom soup. So I cant say it worth the name of Mushroom Soup, unlike the instant ones which you could barely taste the mushroom.

This definitely has an explosion of flavour once you put it in your mouth with all the spices they have in the soup. I can literally get big chunks of beef braised in the spiced beef broth and topped with fried shallots. Despite of the chunks of beef which I pay for, the soup in a whole felt pretty much like the ones in mamak tho.

MeatWorks FlatBread.

The FlatBread is something like naan but tad better with the a mild burnt texture on each side of it. This appetizer is served with smoky hot tomato sauce and marinated feta and olive. The dip just complement the flatbread very well cause the flatbread is very plain but as you dip it into the smoky hot tomato sauce, it just give you a refreshingly modest hot flavour to it. But as you pair the flatbread with the feta and olive, it brings you a brand new flavour that has a light salty taste. I just love both of the combination ! * big fan of bread k *

Caesar Salad.

Romaine lettuce served with garlic croutons, crispy corned silverside bits and Caesar dressing. Its quite a simple and fresh salad, I guess need not to explain much on that.

Lets dive into the sea of homemade tomato-basil sauce with the variety of seafood like fresh prawns, squid and scallops. I can assure you the scallops were fresh but as for the prawns and squid, I shall let you try it yourself cause I am allergic to it. ='(

The homemade tomato-basil sauce turns out to be very light and refreshing with a hint of sourish taste. I personally find it very delish, the light homemade tomato-basil sauce is just how I like my pasta sauce to be. Well if the sauce is too strong in term of flavour, it would grab the attention of the pasta and also the seafood isnt it ? * in my opinion la xD *

Mushroom Melt Burger.

How could someone not try the thick fat patty at MeatWorks !

This burger has a 200g beef patty topped with sauteed mix mushrooms and melted aged Cheddar. The thick fat beef patty was very tender, juicy and it was cooked to perfection, which would literally melts right into your mouth and making you wanting for another bite ! I guess the sauteed mix mushroom also contributed to the juicy tender patty, with its sauces and all.

One tricky part is that, the burger will be so much bigger than your mouth and most of the stuff would fall apart when you chomp it down ! Well you could wrap it around with a tissue paper before eating, so it would be easier to hold on to.

Butterscotch Scones.
The butterscotch scone catch my attention once I enter the restaurant and I shall try the scone in my next visit for a cup of tea! It looks so tempting isnt it ?

The place is very cozy and private, simply because the mall itself doesnt have much crowd. So you could have your candlelight dinner without much disturbance. Along the brick wall, they have this music instrument drawing and I am not sure why it eventually gives me a very jazzy mood in there. Hahah

On top of that, they have this lightbulb with the wiring hanging from the ceiling, giving the restaurant an artsy-fartsy mood. I dun know where did this idea originated but I presume its a trend cause there have been many restaurant embellishing the place in such way. Anyway I have to admit its very simple yet fancy !
