Burger and Sandwich @ Meatworks, Citta Mall, Ara Damansara

We had a heavy lunch at MeatWorks @ Citta Mall before heading down to KL for some last-minute shopping for a bridesmaid dress and a late-night movie.

As there were too many to choose from (and maybe, our brains were still loaded with exam materials), we just flipped through the menu and choose based on the pictures instead.  Yes, it was a very lame method but a reasonable one since most people tend to present their best visually.

KS was attracted to the Gemas Gold Classic Burger (RM 28.00), a 200g grilled beef patty topped with melted aged Cheddar, tomato ketchup, American mustard and pickles.  Boy, did it look huge and obviously unhealthy given all those sauce toppings on the burger.  Generally, it tasted good but, both of us felt that my choice was the better tasting dish instead.  I felt the patty was a quite dry and somehow, slightly bland (maybe not seasoned enough?).

For me, it was the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich (RM 24.00), which is pieces of thinly sliced sirloin steak topped with melted cheese and caramelized onions, wrapped in a soft, but buttery toasted bun.  Like the burger KS had, the sandwich was loaded with mustard, mayonnaise and barbecue sauce, giving a nice rich flavour.  The toasted bread was crispy while the meat was tender and not too chewy.  What I liked the most are those sweet caramelized onions which gave the sandwich a different dimension.  Overall, it tasted very good but very bad on my waistline, unfortunately.

Another thing which we enjoyed very much was the thick-cut fries they served together as sides.  Crispy and golden-browned on the outside but soft and tasty potato in the inside.  Plus, they are salted and peppered nicely. Totally delicious.

Luckily we ordered a hot cup of English Breakfast Tea (RM 6.80) to wash down some of the fats and help with the digestion.
