Grill Werkz at Dover Crescent – Delicious Steak under $20
Having western food in a coffee shop evokes some nostalgia for me. That’s because I often order chicken chop or spring chicken with my family when I was a kid. Now, the quality of western food in coffeeshop has been taken to the next level as they serve better meats at affordable prices. In Dover Crescent, there is a new western food stall “Grill Werkz” that seems to attract good crowd. Best thing is, you can get a pretty decent steak for less than $20!
On the menu are the usual salads, pastas, soups, burgers, steak and various meats from the grill. Served with Cream of Mushroom ($3.50) for the start, I thought it was a little too starchy and weak for our liking. Norway Grill Salmon ($12.80) served in a slab had contrasting textures. While I complained about the dryness from one part of the salmon, my dining partners who ate from the other side of the slab were praising about how soft the meat was.
If you are here with your friends, Combo Mixed Grill ($15.80) is good to share as there are many different meats for you to savour – pork chop, steak, ham, sausages, egg and potato wedges.
Seafood Spaghetti with Arrabbiata Sauce ($6.90) will be another star if the pasta was not overcooked. The seafood such as mussels, prawns and fish were fresh and huge; plus the price is very very reasonable. Unfortunately, while striving for al dente, the chef has accidentally overcooked it leaving it with a gummy and mushy texture. But I am sure the chef will be able to fix that easily. Still, I wouldn’t come here for pasta because the steak has already won my heart.
The Air Flown New Zealand Ribeye Steak ($19.80) is a treat for me because they boast the good flavour. Cooked to perfection, the meat is tender and flavourful with a lovely char. It was a bit chewy but these are already a bit more tender than ordinary beef. It comes with a black pepper sauce which compliments the juicy meat totally. And on the side, you get a plate of greens. For the price, I am already impressed. I think you can skip Aston and give this a try.
If you are living in Dover Crescent, Grill Werkz is definitely a great option to get your western food fix. Yes there are hits and misses, but we seem to be able to find a clear winner here. And maybe I will be back to try their burgers next time!
