gaucho grill @ chulan square
argentina steaks. salad bar. wines
we've been saying about coming here for steaks since last year and finally it was a reality as we don't go into the heart of kl for meals very often. gaucho grill is an steakhouse specializing in argentina-style steaks and i have read of a few good recommendations about the place. then again, you must know by know i'm krazily in love with beef!
the salad bar and our picks
(the eggplants were yummy! so are the french beans)
hot french onion soup
i love this soup!! it was a tad oily but absolutely my fav western soup!
every order of mains come complimentarily with free flow of the salad and soup. regretted i only had one serving of the soup... it was so yum!
1/2 dozen escargots as usual- rm20
it was just ok. our fav is still from peppercorn cafe @ ss15! yummy and reasonable :) love it with alot alot alot alot of garlic (dunno why as i'm not a big fan of garlic per se).
iced illy coffee- rm10
terpaksa order this as they dont provide normal water. their only 'normal' water is bottled mineral water and it costs rm6.50! what a rip off! so why not pay rm10 for an illy coffee than rm6.50 for a normal rm1.50 worth water?
super tender juicy delicious omgorgasmicomg tenderloin redwine- rm88
BillyAngus striploin less tender less juicy but still tender and juicy nonetheless (hahaha...)- rm79
my most memorable would still be the oyster steak at sanfrancisco steakhouse. gaucho grill, like many other steakhouses are on the pricey side so be prepared to fork out at least rm100 per person for a decent steak experience!

after a heavy meal, and since we're at the heart of kl, we decided to pay skybar a visit. there weren't too many people as it was still pretty early for a drink on a friday night. we managed to get a table overlooking the magnificently-picturesque-once-upon-a-time-highest-skyscraper-on-earth. so lomantik...
lychee love or something- rm30
