Another Birthday celebration this month! As usual, Birthday girls picks the place & the other 2 pays. Carol feels like having steak, so Charlene suggested Shashlik.
Shashlik - Tug in a corner of Far East Shopping Center, at Level 6, Shashlik is set-up in 1986 by 9 Hainanse migrants after being laid off at Russian restaurant Troika, the menu remained the same for the past twenty years.
Interior decor so old-school lah.. lol
Fierce looking guy on the menu.. heehee
3 of us ordered the same soup & main dish as Charlene strongly recommends it!
Soft sweet bun were served as soon as we placed our order
Borsch $7- tomato-based soup came with soft cabbage shreds, chunks of beef, carrot and potato with optional serving of sour cream
Escargot $26- nicely baked with garlic. Personally, I feel it'll be better if there's more butter & garlic
Waiter pushing wooden trolley all over the restaurants when serving orders, like dim sum Dolly.. heehee
Shashlik Beef Fillet $29 - Beef fillet served with Russian Salad. It may looks plain & boring, but it's very tender!
Dessert - Baked Alaska - Vanilla Ice Cream Cake with cream on the outside, slightly flamed with rum
Just nice, we treated this as Carol's birthday cake!
Food & ambiance was nice, but please don't expect any exceptionally good service cos most of the staffs here are senior citizen. Thou the service was rather "cold", I would still be back if I'm craving for decent steak if I'm at Orchard.
