Max! Kitchen & Wines

I was at Max! last weekend. It was not my first time there as I have been there a couple of times before and I absolutely love the food there. Max, the owner himself is indeed a perfectionist. He will usually be at the kitchen whipping up the dishes himself. The restaurant is small, with a rustic old charm located in Tengkat Tong Shin, just a few steps further from Ngau Kee (the famous beef noodles) but it's worth visiting!

Over the past few dinners there, I've tried many of the dishes but most not found in the menu. I've had scallops, the wagyu beef cheeks with truffle sauce (yum yum), Portobello mushroom and some surf & turf dishes. It was all good.

This time, I ordered from the menu. And boy, this is actually my first time looking at the menu and I am lost. I didn't know what to order but eventually did make up my mind.

This is my first time having a Yabby and I must say that it tasted good but the flesh is too little! It's just like a big prawn with a lobster head!

Ooh I love this dish. The fish was done perfectly and the prawn was ooh lala..

I don't really fancy lamb in general but this tastes good too.

The chocolate soufle was so chocolatey! I liked the way it was done and the amount of chocolate was sufficient for my palate. Max knew about my expectation towards chocolates!

Overall, I must say that Max! serves arguably the best continental cuisine around. The dishes are all at reasonable portions and a starter, main & dessert will be sufficient. I love the sauces because it goes very well with the dishes and thus I licked every morsel of it. However, his prices can be a little steep. The price of the first courses can range from RM20-RM50 and main courses are priced from RM30-RM70. The total bill came up to RM270 for 1 starter, 2 main courses, 1 dessert and 2 glasses of wine. But for those who appreciates the cuisine, it's worth paying!

Oh, btw, they serve illy coffee too! Please pardon my pictures as they are all taken using my cameraphone.

Looks good...but not impressed by the mini-lobsters. Tong that where the Chinese private hospital is?

-eiling- said...

STP: Yes there's a Tong Shin Hospital but the restaurant is not there. It's on Jln Tengkat Tong Shin which is the same road as the famous Ngau Kee beef noodles.

I noticed you guys have been talking about high heels and I wanted to share something with you that you might be interested in...

A little over 2 years ago, my husband and I got married in Los Angeles, California. Unfortunately, the day of our wedding was spoiled with rain. We had been having the wedding out on the grass and believe it or not, I was wearing high heeled shoes! They had been ruined by the end from the day :(

Even though this was one from the worst experiences I've ever had with my shoes, it truly led my sister in law to create a product which is just awesome! It's already been featured on TV shows like the Girls of the Playboy Mansion, and also the show Kendra.

Heels Above will support you protect your costly heels from sinking in mud, slipping in cracks, and walking on sand and gravel. It is a new merchandise, and I thought I'd share it with all of you.

They are taking orders now. You are able to order one pair, or a few dozen for your big wedding day.

I hope you guys like it... If you have any questions, feel free to drop them an email on their internet site:
