Dining Out @ Eat Work Shop, Glenmarie, Shah Alam

yummy crab cakes (RM20.80)

Working in Shah Alam often means limited choices for dinner, as most of the eateries seem to cater instead for lunch. Luckily there's this place, well hidden in an industrial area that offers good restaurant food.

lovely caesar salad with fluffy parmesan cheese

We first discovered this place in 2006 and that blog post sparked off an interest for this eatery, that it was blogged to death. Suprisingly, it has survived through the times and recent visits to there confirmed it still serves generally good food.

squid ink pasta with seafood

Our recent visit was very promising as we simply loved their Caesar salad - crunchy romaine lettuce topped with feather light grated parmesan cheese and topped with beef bacon. Simply yummy, was how Splashie Boy described it. Even my squid ink pasta with seafood that came with a tinge of spiciness was very good.

grilled rib-eye steak

However last night when we dined there, it was a different ball game for us since we sampled other items. My braised lamb shank (RM32.80) was good but not exceptionally fantastic. It was fork tender but the sauce seemed to lack much spices and oomph. Even the grilled rib eye was a dissapointment as it was not tender but on a slightly chewier side. Luckily their home made crab cakes saved the day but we did leave feeling a little unsatisfied with the meal. Am not sure whether it was just our "spoilt" tastebuds or we had just picked the wrong items. Nevertheless, I reckon we should have stuck with the safer choices - pasta and salad as that never seems to dissapoint.
