Steak, lobster and pasta to thrill taste buds - The Star

Jun 17, 2008 By OH ING YEEN

Cosy: The cosy ambience of the outlet invites diners to unwind.

REGULAR patrons of the San Francisco Steakhouse in Summit USJ who were dismayed when the outlet closed, will be happy to know that it has shifted to Jaya Square in SS17/2.

Located next to the New Pantai Expressway (NPE), it is easily accessible and there is ample parking space. The outlet sports a San Francisco-themed interior, reflecting the city after which the steakhouse is named, with a cosy ambience.

With its tagline 'Where steak lovers call home', diners need look no further for tender and succulent steaks. Steak lovers can choose from juicy prime steaks of Angus beef or Australian Wagyu beef. Known for its marbling that gives rise to its “melt in the mouth” texture, the Wagyu beef is a popular choice.

Homemade Egg Pasta: Vongole Spaghetti is a perfect choice for those who like clams.

This branch is the first to feature the Homemade Egg Pasta, prepared under the supervision of executive chef Federico Michieletto. It is available only in the Jaya Square branch but will soon be available at all outlets. Diners can select from Spaghettoni Chitarra, Tagliatelle, and Handcut Pappardelle and six styles of preparation.

The highly recommended Aglio Olio style is a simple yet tasty combination of pasta, virgin olive oil, garlic, parsley and chilli to add a hint of spiciness.

If you like clams, try the Vongole style (vongole is Italian for “clams”), prepared with fresh clams sautéed in extra virgin oil with garlic, chilli and parsley.

Juicy prime steaks: Patrons can choose from Australian Wagyu beef or Angus beef.

Other options include Chicken Mushroom Alfredo, Beef Bolognese, Carbonara, and Cheese Maccheroni.

Diners can choose to start the meal with the flavourful Onion Soup, garnished with cheese croutons, that absorb the taste of sliced onion gently cooked in chicken consommé.

The Golden Gate Burger is a popular choice among young adults. The juicy grilled beef patty served in a bun with cheese and onion, comes with baked beans, coleslaw and French fries.

Sweet ending: Banana Tart with Chocolate Ice Cream and Vanilla Sauce, made from fresh bananas.

Seafood lovers can opt for the Boston Live Lobster. Whether grilled with garlic butter, broiled with spicy sauce or baked Thermidor style, is bound to satisfy your cravings for fresh lobster.

To end the meal on a sweet note, diners can choose from an array of delectable cakes, including the Almond Tiramisu, Cheese Cake and Chocolate Brownie A La Mode.
