N.E.S.W. - West (Kuantan)

>> Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Dates: 13-15 November 2009, Friday - Sunday
Venue: Sherwood, Jalan Teluk Sisek, Kuantan
Occasion: Dinner with siblings
Overall comment: Sherwood is one of the finest places for western food in Kuantan. Prices of food at this place is no doubt higher than anywhere else in town, but it is worth paying the price for the food quality you get ;)
Halal: Yes

West refers to West Malaysia. Kuantan is located in the East Coast of West Malaysia, but I'm going to share this as one of my last few food posts for the year 2009. I've been somewhat too busy & unbothered to eat any good food. In fact, at times, I would even not bother eating properly! *sigh*

Do enjoy this post & if you're in Kuantan, this is one place that I will recommend & you'll not be disappointed with what you get :)


Lunch/Dinner at Sherwood, Kuantan

The interior of the restaurant
They sell meat, sausages, cheese, & imported items here. This is one of the very few places in Kuantan to get such goodies :)

Garlic Bread
Yums! Fragrant garlic butter on crispy oven-toasted baguette

Smoked Salmon Salad
Yeap, this was my dinner! I didn't want something too meaty or too heavy, so I thought a salad would be good...mana tau the salad came in such a large portion. I reckon the price speaks for itself...above RM20+ for this dish. Me likey except for the dressing, which I found over-powering; honey mustard dressing. The salmon was good!

Rosti!
Except for the slightly burnt top, this rosti rawks! :D Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside - oh, for the love of potatoes!

Mixed Grill with Black Pepper Sauce
Don't be fooled by the seemingly stingy serving. It's pretty filling! Loads of meat (chicken, beef, lamb) on the stick & you have potatoes, corn, & veggie to accompany the meat...how does that sound to you? Something healthy? ;)

Rib Eye Steak with Red Wine Sauce
The steak was not too bad, but sadly, the sauce wasn't "umph!" enough. I'll still give it a pass :)

Fettuccine Carbonara
I'm just enjoying this pasta thanks to the generous amount of mushrooms. Apart from that, I think this pasta isn't all that "wow".

Aaron & I went there another time last weekend, 27 December 2009. He was craving for some good western food, so it was no doubt Sherwood once more! :)


Mixed Fruit Juice (RM5.30/glass)

Cheese Salad with Italian Dressing (around RM5.90/serving)
We haven't had a cheese salad before, so this was interesting, though not very tasty. It's just slices of cheddar cheese with loads of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, & capsicums, drizzled with Italian dressing. I thought it wasn't the right dressing for such a salad, but we had a choice of Italian, French, Thousand Island, & Honey Mustard *shrugs*

Loin of Lamb with Mint Sauce (around RM38.00/serving)
I thought this was good :) Four pieces of nicely done lamb chops with appetizing mint sauce just fills the glum, rainy day with rainbows...hahaha...

Pizza Pepperoni (RM28.00/pizza)
Best pizza you will ever get in Kuantan! You MUST eat it while it's piping hot :D The crust was crispy & the toppings were generous! Just love the cheese, pepperoni & tomatoes covering the whole pizza *drools* The pizza could fit 3-4 people (if there are other dishes), but it fed the 2 of us to satisfactory!

Ruth...the Mix Grill, How much was it?

And the mixed fruit juice, is a reap off..they used a lousy fruit juicer, you can see it from the contrast of the color.

And the salmon salad, the vege they gave are dirt cheap, the only expensive one is the salmon.

->J-mes: Hon, only u'll know that the stuff they use ain't good la...but the juice is memang a rip-off. More water than fruit pinya. As for the salmon salad, the salmon was not too bad la, but like you said, the vegie aren't those expensive ones. Can't really get "keng" vegie in Kuantan also la... :P I reckon it's the makan company that matters :D Oh ya, mixed grill's price - gotta ask the Taliban. I can't recall :P
