DINING out and opting for a Western meal can be an expensive affair and the challenge is in finding a place that serves affordably priced food.
To reach a wider customer base, restaurant operator Kenny Teng decided on affordable pricing for his Western dishes when he opened The Grill in Wangsa Maju.
The eatery has plenty to offer diners with its mouthwatering rib-eye steak (RM36.90), freshly cooked salmon with apple relish (RM30.90), classic coney dog (RM19.90) with generous servings of sides, including tasty potato croquette and onion rings, among others.
Teng admitted that his love for Western food drove him to open the eatery to give customers a wholesome dining experience.
“I chose this location because it is close to several neighbourhoods.
“It provides easy access for people who want to come and enjoy Western food.
“The diversity in the neighbourhoods is a plus point because we attract people from all walks of life who come here and have a good time.
“All of our meats are prepared in house, ” he said.
The Grills Chicken Cordon Bleu (RM23.90) was a personal favourite.
This hearty portion comprises chicken breast with turkey ham, cream cheese and spinach which is breaded and deep-fried. It is then topped with shiitake mushroom cream sauce and mozzarella.
The mashed potato, served alongside, was light in texture while the Louisiana coleslaw was rich and creamy.
The fried potato croquette was simple and enjoyable.
Hard and firm on the outside, the croquette was stuffed with cheese and diced onions to show off creamy goodness on the inside with a pleasant tanginess.
The classic coney island served in buns, came with chicken sausage, minced beef chilli sauce and mustard.
If you are looking for something slightly more peppery, there is the rib-eye steak option.
Served sizzling hot with black pepper sauce and mustard, the flaky meat fell apart easily.
The big cheeseburger is not to be missed. The sight of it alone is enough to make you want to have a bite.
Sandwiched between the beef patty was cheese and jalapenos.
I also ordered The Cooler – mint flavour watermelon juice. It helps quench one’s thirst even on the hottest of days.
And if milkshake is more your thing, the chocolate milkshake was sweet and velvety.
Visitors can get here via the LRT and disembark at the Sri Rampai station while those who drive can park at the nearby parking bays or at the Wangsa Walk mall.
