What to eat in Kuantan: Western food at East Grill Steak House

>> Saturday, May 28, 2016

Which resident in Kuantan has not heard of East Grill Steak House? If you happen to visit Kuantan, just ask around any Kuantan residents & they'll be able to tell you more about the food here at this established restaurant.

For the many years that I've studied, visited & stayed in Kuantan, I've only been here once in the year 2009! *oh what a shame....* I don't even remember dining here...seems like it's been too long ago :P It's only when I did a search online that I found my own blog post popping up...ahahahaha....my poor memory...

East Grill Steak House is one of the more well-known western food restaurants in town. I was there with C2 on a Friday for lunch & the place started getting packed by 12:30p.m. (I think that's the normal Kuantan lunch hour?). People of all races were dining here, enjoying their meal together with family members & friends. The restaurant serves quite a variety of local/fusion food as well for those who don't fancy western food.

Set Lunch C - Deep-Fried Chicken & Fish Fillet with Chips, served with Black Pepper Sauce (RM19.90/serving before GST)
I just wanted something simple, quick & hassle-free for a weekday lunch, so I ordered their set lunch, which comes with a glass of 100 Plus. Frankly speaking, it's not that cheap, but it's not too bad for the price & portion. As for taste, I've no major complains. It's not the best chicken chop nor fish & chips, but it's acceptable. I just didn't like the buttered corn side dish as it was soft instead of crisp.

Set Lunch C comes with a piece of chicken, a piece of fish & a 'slice' of fish cracker. A somewhat strange combination, but it's SO Kuantan...hahahaha....

Set Lunch D - Baked Salmon with Worcestershire Sauce, served with Baked Wedges (RM25.90/serving before GST)
When it was served in front of C2, the 1st thought that came to us was, "The portion's so small for the price paid!" & the 2nd thought was "My, my...looks so 'healthy'...." Taste was quite nice & the fish was baked perfectly; it wasn't dry. We just felt that it's kinda expensive for a set lunch, although yeah, perhaps the price of salmon has gone up? *shrugs* It's certainly something different as it's our 1st time trying baked salmon with Worcestershire sauce.

Busy lunch hour business 

We left around 2:00p.m. & it was still busy 

The restaurant opens for both lunch & dinners. I've yet to try their steak here since it's a "steak house". I'll be back someday to give it another try. I think throughout the years, the quality, price & portion may have declined, but Kuantan doesn't have that many varieties to offer, so I guess places like this will still survive as long as the food doesn't taste bad.
