I was really looking forward to last Saturday's dinner as Hubby said that he will bring me to Max! Kitchen for dinner. Our 1st visit to Max was absolutely a wonderful dining experience for us since that was the first time we tried wagyu beef cheek. Actually I already knew what I wanted to order and like I said earlier, I was really really looking forward to this dinner that I actually skipped lunch to make space!
For appetizer, we ordered the Scallops (RM35) which came with 4 gigantic-sized scallop which was pan-fried and drizzled with balsamic vinegar, olive oil and some sort of capsicum salsa. Very succulent indeed, I like it!!!!
A close-up of the scallops.....so yummy-looking isn't it?? Mmmm...still can taste it in my mouth now.
The waiter recommended us to their just-arrived-on-the-same-day Canadian Fresh Oysters priced at only RM4 each. We ordered 4 pieces; two to be eaten raw and two to be cheese-baked.
Best eaten raw with a dash of lemon juice, the oysters were really fresh, juicy and SWEET! Sigh..it reminds me the time when my brother-in-law bought 10 dozens of Tasmanian oysters when we were in Melbourne last December.
The cheese-baked version was not too bad too! But Hubby said that it's such a waste to cook it this way since the sweetness of the oysters were covered by the cheese. Kinda agree with him. If he said it earlier, I would have volunteer to have his serving too.
Hubby's dream to try the Wagyu Tenderloin, air-flown from Australia, finally realised. Priced at RM110, Hubby said this plate worth every cents paid. Served with a piece of goose liver, sauteed pea sprouts, polenta and mushroom gravy, every items were perfectly done!!! The beef was so tender and doesn't require much chewing. Almost like melting in my mouth! Ooohhh..sooooo heavenly good! Since it was so good...of course I would have to post more than 1 photo of this masterpiece.
Lamb or duck? Lamb or duck? So difficult to make up my mind. I tried the lamb during last visit so I planned to have duck this time but somehow I still very tempted to have lamb again. In fact, I have not had any lamb for the past 6 years until I went to Max. Finally, Lamb won!! I had the Lamb Cutlets (RM50) which was served with a super yummy mint sauce. OOoo...it was sooo good. It was also served with pea sprouts and polenta and the mint sauce, just can't describe how good it was so I would recommend you to try it yourself.
I happened to come across a post by FriedChillies on Restaurant Muar at Tengkat Tong Shin and what interest me was the Iced Cendol. Just a few walks away from Max!, we headed to the restaurant for dessert. It was so crowded, so I guess food must be good here. Felt a bit embarassed to walk in just for 2 bowls of iced cendol but then hey, still a paying customer rite? So I braved myself to walk in and asked the lady boss if they could served us with only 2 bowls of cendol..hehehe...yeah, the lady boss was rather surprised and said "Of course, which table?"
Served in a small plastic rice bowl, it was heavily laden with gula melaka and thick santan. VELI VELI SWEET!!!! Too sweet for my likings but the only thing I like about the cendol was the finely shaved ice. Hubby didn't like it cos too sweet so I volunteered myself, it's very bad to waste food you know!?!? Priced at RM1 per bowl, what more to ask for??? Will definately come back to try their dishes, well provided I can resist from walking into Max! Kitchen.
Ermm...Ahem...Hubby, are we gonna celebrate our 'First-Time-We-Met" anniversary next month?? Can do it at Max! Kitchen?
