Best steak in kuala lumpur: 10 Restaurants and steakhouses in KL for a juicy steak


Best Steaks in KL — FoodAdvisor

Steaks, whether is it Wagyu, Angus, sirloin, rib-eye, T-bone or fillet, is extremely delicious when cooked properly. Medium-rare, medium or sometimes, medium well – is the best way to have it done. They ensure the moisture, natural juices and flavour of the steak is contained within the meat itself. Not forgetting to rest it when it’s done as resting helps retain and locks all the juicy goodness within the beef. Last but not least, sides and sauces to complete the platter. Sounds simple? Not exactly. Hence, here is the list of the best steaks for a joyful jaw workout in Kuala Lumpur.

  • The unique thing about Vantador is that they use dry
    aged beef for their steaks which offers extraordinarily rich flavour and
    buttery texture. The beef is hung for 30 days to allow
    enzymes naturally present in the meat to break down the muscle tissue which
    will improve the texture and flavor. The taste of the steak is excellent and contains
    chewy texture, perfect for those who like their steak on the juicier side.

    The Steakhouse is a 40-seater steak joint along the streets of Changkat Bukit Bintang. As the name suggests, it holds pride and honour in the beef it serves as they are imported from Australia. Choose from either Aged Black Angus or grain fed – both which are really good. Steaks were well seasoned, cooked and of course, rested. That ensures tender, moist and juiciness to the brim. The beautifully grilled vegetables add a nice colour and texture to the dish. If you’re taking advantage of the cosy and dimly lit backdrop for a romantic meal, do add the curated wines into the mix too.

    Ril’s Bangsar – A casual fine dining steakhouse, has gained quite a stir on their air-flown Angus steak and various other beefy goodness.

Having said that, the steaks itself were pretty good. Seasoned and cooked to perfection simply with salt, pepper and olive oil, no frills but full of flavours.

6 top steakhouses in KL and PJ delivering to your home during FMCO

Justin Ng

Digital Content Director, Kuala Lumpur

Steaks are best fresh off the grill, prepared to the exact doneness and sliced off with the right company in a tête-à-tête that stretches into the night. 

But chewing the fat isn’t quite possible right now and so the best alternative is to have them delivered to your doorstep. In lieu of a grill, you can fire up Netflix – and if you drink, pop the cork.  

As FMCO looms large, some top steakhouses in KL and PJ are taking a hiatus; Prime at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur and the Bangsar outpost of The Beato Steakhouse, for example, while others offer only takeaway. And so, we have curated six of the best that still brave the scorching weather – so you don’t have to – and hand them over to you in tip-top conditions, as close as dining in.

In sharp contrast to visually gratifying joints catering to the Gram, Grub is a throwback to nostalgic days when food reigned supreme. Its juicy, tender cuts at prices that most can resonate with have garnered the steakhouse a legion of carnivorous “grubbers”. 

Don’t miss the gigantic 1kg Angus XL ribeye bone-in and 1.5kg Angus tomahawk.

Best Steaks in Kuala Lumpur

This post on the best steaks in Kuala Lumpur is dedicated to the carnivores amongst you.

Click on the title links for menus, prices, photos and contact details.

Best Steaks In Kuala Lumpur – Delivered To Your Door

Vantador made waves a few years back when they first opened as the only steakhouse in Kuala Lumpur serving the illustrious Rubia Gallega. Said to be one of the best-tasting steaks in the world, the prized Spanish beef was only the tip of the knife for Vantador. Offering premium cuts of meat, the team dry-age them in house, concentrating the flavour and improving the texture. While you can’t currently be seduced by the setting and eye-catching flickering flames from the open grill, the team behind Vantador offers a beautiful delivery menu instead.

Vantador has three-course boxes with a choice of four types of steak for delivery. They start from RM 318 for the Full Blood Angus Ribeye dry-aged for 200 days and go up to RM 818 for the Black Wagyu MB9 Ribeye.

The newly opened Don Julio KL in Mont Kiara will be an exciting place to step foot into once we are allowed out again. But for now, you should know that they carry a range of premium steaks for delivery. Your focus here should definitely be on the Argentinian meat cuts. Beef from this part of the world is known for being clean due to organic feeding and free from hormones and antibiotics. The team at Don Julio KL uses corn-fed Black Angus beef, producing a sweet and tender steak and grass-fed Angus beef, which is a little leaner and offers more flavour variation. Cooked the traditional Argentinian way, over a parilla or brasero, you’re guaranteed an expertly prepared steak here.

An excellent introduction is the Parrilla Mixta (RM 330, 1.5 kg). A common meal in Argentina, the platter is composed of short ribs, a half spring chicken, sweetbread (thymus and pancreas gland – rich and creamy), chinchulin (small intestine), and beef vacio. Or, for more modest portions, try the rib-eye or sirloin.

Does brisket count as steak? I wasn’t too sure, but assume that if you’re a meat lover, you would surely want to know about one of the most delicious, smokiest barbecues in town. Craf Roasters are proud owners of a custom-built offset smoker, which they fire up with local rambutan wood. They have some excellent barbecue sets, perfect for getting a taste of their skill. Weekends Set A (RM 115) serving two to three people is a fine place to start. The combo consists of brisket, smoked pulled lamb and meatloaf. The first two have benefitted from smoking for a minimum of 12 hours (and go up to 18 hours depending on the size of the cut). They’re extraordinarily juicy, and the smokiness deliciously lingers in the palate, outdoing even the most premium wines for length.

Xmas Lunch with children from Dignity for Children Foundation (2018)

On 6th December 2018, we hosted our first Christmas community lunch at our new outlet in Bandar Sunway, inviting 35 underprivileged students of the Dignity for Children Foundation, along with 2 of their teachers.

The students and their teachers tremendously enjoyed Maria’s SteakCafé’s Fish & Chips, Spaghetti Bolognese, Sausages, Sandwiches and Mushroom soup. Celebrating the joyful season, there were Christmas gifts for everyone, ending a memorable lunch for a great group dining experience.

The Dignity for Children foundation is a non-governmental organisation that provides holistic care and education for urban poor children in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It supports, educates and prepares the underprivileged for future employability.

For the record, we at Maria’s SteakCafe have been supporting the Dignity for Children Foundation with monthly donations that help assure a future for these students, being involved in not just monetary donations but also educating some of the students in Food and Beverage (F&B) training.

Celebrating Mother’s Day with mothers and children from the Dignity for Children Foundation (2019)

On 3rd May 2019, 66 mothers with their children from the Dignity for Children Foundation celebrated Mother’s Day with a Luncheon at our Bandar Sunway outlet.

Everybody was treated with a scrumptious 3-course meal consisting of our popular dishes. The restaurant was filled with love and excitement all around as the children passionately and creatively garnished the chocolate pudding with their own favourite toppings as an expression of love for their mothers.

They also brought home a special framed photo taken with their mothers, creating a lasting bonding moment while having a wonderful time at Maria’s SteakCafe, the best steakhouse in town.

On 17th October 2019, we hosted a charity dinner, jointly organised by Dignity for Children Foundation. The event, in conjunction with United Nations’ International Day for the Eradication of Poverty was held to empower more underprivileged and marginalised children to break out of the poverty cycle – and this is done through receiving quality education.

Guests were treated with our luscious 3-course meal for only RM200 per person. All proceeds from the event were channeled towards the education fees for the children studying in Dignity.

A Christmas Feast for Dignity for Children Foundation (2019)

The Christmas 2019 holiday season saw 35 children and a teacher from the Dignity for Children Foundation invited for a Christmas Lunch at our Bangsar outlet.

The children had a blast decorating their very own ‘Gingerbread Man’ and each received a special Christmas present to bring back home.

Prime, Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur

There’s a lot to love about Prime steakhouse – its masculine décor, large arm chairs and open kitchen with a view of the chefs at work. I think the restaurant has aged well, creating a name of its own and it is to me, the best steakhouse in Kuala Lumpur.

1kg Augustus Tomahawk (RM368 for 1kg)

Perhaps it’s the professional and attentive service. Perhaps it’s the fact that I always order the same thing. Or perhaps it’s because I go there often enough for the staff and chefs to recognise me and deliver their best. But what is certain is that I’ve always enjoyed my dining experience at Prime. And that’s most important.

The whole works

Prime combo side dish

On my recent visit, I was coaxed to try the 150 Days Grain Fed Augustus Tomahawk, served with the Prime combo side dish and steak fries. This bone-in rib steak has a large amount of intermuscular fat so the meat is incredible flavourful, right to the bone.

Charred edges, medium rare centre

It was quite a steak. Even before the platter arrived, I could smell it; the top note of its char and delicious aroma of melted beef fat. The tomahawk was sliced and served the Prime way, and each forkful of meat had a spectrum of textures – crunchy at the side and tender at the bone, with a richness from the fat.

Deliciously tender and rimmed with fat

They always get the fries right; thick and crisp enough to withstand the soggy plunge into the steak juices. I love them even more dipped in truffle jus and béarnaise sauce. The combo side dish of grilled asparagus, roma tomato, onion rings and crab croquette did not disappoint.

Roma tomatoes

Roasted Roma tomato soup

We ordered a different set of appetisers that night, all good in their own right. Especially noteworthy was the Prime crab cakes (RM55) – sweet from the crab and dense, with a crisp and light crust. It was mostly crab, lightly seasoned and tasted like heaven. Roasted Roma tomato soup (RM40) came with Ratatouille garlic bread and while the soup was rich and thick, nothing beats the signature lobster bisque.

Prime crab cakes

Crabby goodness!

The Spicy Thai beef salad – Yum Nua (RM55) was a delicious assemblage of seared wagyu chuck flap tail on onion, cucumber, cherry tomato, romaine and cilantro salad with Thai dressing. It was a marriage of tangy, spicy, sweet and savoury flavours, complimenting the beef slices beautifully.

Spicy Thai beef salad – Yum Nua (RM55)

Charcoal grilled wagyu burger with foie gras and shaved truffle

Our dining companion had the Charcoal grilled Wagyu Burger (RM138), a sizable portion and quite a sight to behold. This happens to be rif’s personal favourite and justly so. The patty is thick and tightly packed, juicy but not dripping, and perfectly seasoned to exert presence, but not to overpower the meat. All that, topped with a generous slab of foie gras and truffle shavings, and sandwiched in buttered brioche bun. Beat that.

Illy coffee flavoured tiramisu

The Illy coffee flavoured tiramisu (RM30) has been our favourite from the beginning, and it still is. While I would have preferred it in bowl like how they served it 5 years ago (the bowl holds more Sambuca liquor), this version is prettier to look at. The deconstructed lemon tart (RM30) is a lighter option to end your meal – a pretty platter of meringue, cream, butterscotch, maple ice cream and tart crumble. Loved the assortment of textures and how the flavours complemented each other.

Deconstructed lemon tart

Many steakhouses have cropped up in Kuala Lumpur in the recent year or two, but Prime remains my favourite. To each his own, really. 🙂

90,000 best five establishments – The most beautiful cities in the world

Today we will take a look at the five best restaurants located in Kuala Lumpur – the capital of Malaysia. This time I decided to talk about haute cuisine, places that have received professional awards. In these Kuala Lumpur restaurants, you can not only taste the delicacies and original dishes prepared by renowned chefs, but also simply enjoy the surrounding view. These establishments, by and large, are also works of design art.So please, here are two in one: bread and circuses. I hope it will be interesting and tasty in every sense of the word. Go!

The best restaurants in Kuala Lumpur

In these restaurants, everything is raised to a high level, sometimes physically, but invariably professionally. If you are in the Malaysian capital and want to enjoy amazing service, cute, well-decorated rooms, fine dining, then head to one of these five establishments. You will definitely find a restaurant to your liking in Kuala Lumpur.In the meantime, I will focus your attention on the best, according to the experts.

Restaurant Marinis on 57

An exclusive Italian restaurant located on the rooftop of the main attraction of Kuala Lumpur – Petronas Towers.

The view of the city from here is stunning. It is easy to guess from the name that you will have breakfast, lunch or dinner on the 57th floor, and in the very center of the Malaysian capital. There are also many bars, restaurants, places for recreation around, but Marinis on 57 is still a clear favorite for the pros and many tourists, locals.

When you are in the elevator, it seems that everything is quiet and calm, but as soon as you cross the threshold of the best Kuala Lumpur restaurant, you find yourself in a completely different environment. Immediately you notice the refined elegance, you hear how glasses of expensive champagne are banging against each other, creating a festive mood. At the same time, no one shouts, quiet, sincere conversations are conducted.

The interior of the Marinis on 57 restaurant is designed in light colors, modern furniture is used, but the bar is decorated in an art deco style.As for the lounge area, it will surely remind you of Havana, with brown leather sofas of different sizes. Floor-to-ceiling windows, paintings by Italian artists on the walls, skylights for stunning views of Kuala Lumpur.

This restaurant mainly serves Italian cuisine. Spaghetti with mullet caviar and almonds, as well as fried seabass stuffed with shrimps and garnished with lemon, are considered special chic. The portions are small, but the taste is unforgettable.Fine dishes are complemented by unobtrusive, light music. In addition, the Suria KLCC adjoins the Petronas Tower with a trendy shopping center and is accessible by elevator.

Restaurant Thirty8

Located in the Grand Hyatt Hotel Kuala-Lumpur and has received prestigious awards. It has a dining room, seating area, wine bar, all in one place. To be precise, on the 38th floor of the Kuala Lumpur Grand Hyatt Hotel. Thirty8’s menu features Japanese, Chinese and Western cuisines.

As in the best restaurant, there are large windows overlooking the panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur. This means that while having a meal, it is quite possible to admire the city from above, especially its center. It is also a great opportunity to take pictures of the Petronas towers, from an advantageous angle.

At Thirty8, freshly made sashimi and sushi are especially good, but meat lovers are also not overlooked. Steaks and delicious ribs are prepared for them. It must be said that Chinese cuisine generally has an unusual taste and can combine ingredients such as lobster, hot ginger, caramelized fresh onions, soy sauce, black pepper, peanuts, tofu, bamboo shoots, etc.

If in Kuala Lumpur you want silence and food at the same time, go to Thirty8 restaurant. The atmosphere is very calm here.

Prego Restaurant

This restaurant is also located in one of Kuala Lumpur’s hotels – The Westin Hotel and received a professional award for “Best Italian Restaurant” and a “productive” place to eat. It occupies two floors and houses an old-world clubhouse: dark wooden tables, an open kitchen with tiles, glass ceiling lights, various chrome objects.All this creates a cozy atmosphere.

As for food at Prego, it is worth noting the excellent quality of the ingredients, efficient service and at the same time reasonable prices. Among the specialties are hand-made pasta, ravioli with tender chicken meat, topped with mushroom sauce. Popular at this Kuala Lumpur restaurant and risotto with mild mushroom sauce and parmesan. And you must also leave a place for dessert. You can try the famous crème brulee, another Italian light crème, mousse espresso, chocolate pie or tiramisu.

Frangipani Restaurant

At night, gays and people who are at least tolerant of representatives of non-traditional minorities like to gather in this place. This is one of the finest French restaurants in Malaysia, located along the Changkat Bukit Bintang. It resembles a scene from a James Bond movie. The atmosphere seems to be permeated with confidence, sophistication, without words speaks of the highest quality.

The menu in the Frangipani restaurant is huge, it contains very unusual fusion dishes, which can be safely attributed to the unsurpassed ones.French wines are offered as an aperitif. Often they serve tiger prawn ceviche with avocado cream and grated tomatoes, duck fried in its own juice with mustard sauce.

Restaurant Prime

Located in Le Meridien Hotel, next to the central station and is considered the best steakhouse. In Kuala Lumpur, this restaurant appeared in 2004 and quickly became popular with meat lovers. Prime has won prestigious awards for its excellently cooked meat.An excellent choice for a discreet candlelit dinner, satisfying hunger.

The interior of the restaurant is quite simple: many dark wooden wine cabinets, high-backed chairs, wood floor with a golden sheen. The meat for making delicious steaks comes from Japan, USA, Australia and Argentina.

Of course, on the Prime menu you will find not only steaks, but also fried scallops, clam puree soup, Caesar salad. For dessert, you should order the classic tiramisu here.

Now I think you have no doubt that these are the best restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, that they definitely deserve your attention. Bon Appetit.

See you at There is still a lot of interesting things ahead.

90,000 Restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, the best cafes: description, prices

The question of where to eat in Kuala Lumpur is not worth it for travelers at all … Gastronomic tourism in the capital of Malaysia is one of the most popular and demanded. However, when visiting a metropolis, it will not be superfluous to have a “cheat sheet” with a list of the best restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, where you can drop in after a long excursion and outdoor activities.

Madam Kwan’s is a chain of oriental cuisine restaurants. It serves the most delicate rice nasi lemak, cooked in coconut milk, and, without exaggeration, the best Satay chicken kebabs with all the variety of fillings. The average score of the most popular spot in Suria KLCC Center is from 182 MYR. An alternative to Madam Kwan’s can be Opium KL with an incredible fish menu, BB Hailam Chicken Rice , etc.

Malabar Palace, Tg’s Nasi Kandar – inexpensive restaurants in Kuala Lumpur with an international menu.You can also drop by the legendary pub D’Legends bar , which serves the pork version of Satay and many other flavored chicken dishes. The main advantage of the establishments is the “non-fiery” menu, which will be to the taste of Europeans.

Kanna Curry House Restaurant is an authentic restaurant in Kuala Lumpur in every respect. Reviews from tourists indicate that it is in Kanna Curry that you can fully experience the oriental atmosphere: Roti branded pancakes, chicken curry are served here on palm leaves, and there are no cutlery at all.The average house check is 110 MYR.

Way Modern Chinois, Japanese Fine Dining Kurata represent haute oriental cuisine. Prices in these restaurants in Kuala Lumpur range in the 142-300 MYR range for lunch.

Kuala Lumpur’s finest cafes offer a wide variety of gourmet food programs from around the world. At the same time, rumors about the total acuteness of Asian cuisine turn out to be exaggerated: up to 30% of local residents do not perceive “fiery” dishes.Therefore, in the cafes of Kuala Lumpur, where prices rarely rise to 75 MYR per check, and in large restaurants in the capital, you can always find European dishes with a local flavor. The most famous Russian restaurant in Kuala Lumpur is Dastarhan.

By the way, it is not customary to leave a tip in Kuala Lumpur restaurants. In some fashionable establishments, they can be included in the bill and make up no more than 10% of the order amount.

90,000 In Kuala Lumpur, food is where life is All Salt

The market is the very essence of the Malaysian way of life in general and the Malaysian attitude towards food in particular.Here they not only buy to cook, but also cook in front of your eyes to eat. A person who comes for groceries often cannot resist the temptation and, having made some purchases, settles down to taste steaming aromatic noodles in one of the many shops located along the perimeter of the shopping arcade. After satisfying the first hunger, they return home to prepare breakfast to eat it in the circle of household members.

The main law of life in Malaysia: wherever a lot of people gather, they sell food. Naturally, the markets attract a particularly large number of street food vendors, or hawkers as they are called in Southeast Asia.

Food in Malaysia is where life is. However, the opposite is also true: life is where food is. This is why markets are so important to the Malaysian lifestyle.

The appetites of Malaysians are such that the markets work almost around the clock, although they are different markets.

Each district of Kuala Lumpur has its own food market. Cooks, hostesses and servants visit it early in the morning. By noon, life in such markets freezes. But it continues to thrive in the large central markets, which are open throughout the day.

I visited one of these, Chow Kit, on the second day after my arrival in Malaysia. But more on that later.

With the onset of darkness, life in Kuala Lumpur gets a second wind. The night does not bring the long-awaited coolness, but gives new strength and, oddly enough at first, sharpens the appetite.

For this occasion, there are Pasar Malam, or night markets in Kuala Lumpur. They differ from the daytime ones in that on Pasar Malam they do not buy food so much (although they are sold, especially fruits), as they eat.

Tents with all kinds of street food literally descend from the sidewalks onto the pavement, and the feast of the stomach begins, which is destined to end long after midnight.

Morning is coming – welcome to Malam, or the wet market. Determining that you are on Malam is not difficult: the sellers are shod in black or bright yellow galoshes or wooden shoes with high soles.

A cement floor is often doused with water to wash away debris that decomposes in the heat. But the water does not go away at all, and in some places rather deep puddles form.

The first impression of the Malaysian market is complete chaos, a mixture of bright colors, piercing smells, noise and hubbub: a serious bargaining is underway, because bargaining in the Malaysian market is part of the pleasure for both buyers and sellers.

Unfortunately, a foreigner is largely deprived of such pleasure. First, everything you buy (fruits, spices, peppers) costs 1 ringit, about 30 US cents, so bargaining is not practical. Secondly, the language barrier: Malaysians understand English well, many speak fluently, but, of course, trade in their own languages ​​(Malay, different dialects of Chinese, Hindi, Urdu, Tamil …) In this sense, the Malaysian market is like Babylonian the tower, as well as Malaysia itself.

Having got used to it, you begin to notice that the “wet” market is far from a chaotic heap of tents and trays, as it seems at first. All fruit trade is concentrated in one place. There are a sea of ​​yellow bananas, bright red fluffy rambutans that emit a sugary-sweet scent of pineapple, as well as mangoes and many other fruits, each of which can be tasted right there. November is the season of mangosteen, a small blue-colored fruit with a very delicate taste and juice that leaves indelible stains.

Although everything looks like it’s just “from the bush”, not all fruits are local: for example, I bought mangoes from Thailand, and some were imported from China and even Australia.

In terms of color and aromas, vegetable rows are not inferior to fruit rows. There are daun kari (curry leaves), giant bunches of watercress, mountains of spinach, cabbage, gray little eggplants, young bamboo stalks, sprouted beans. An incredible amount of hot peppers in all sizes and colors of the rainbow.

It may seem like a coincidence, but just behind the vegetable rows are the fresh noodle vendors.In fact, there is no accident here. You, so to speak, climb the ladder of Malaysian cuisine – from simple to more complex. In addition to many different types of noodles, they sell thinly rolled dough for the wantons and different types of tofu.

Eggs are sold nearby – fresh and cooked, including those that are called “century eggs” in English, pei daan in Malay, and here in the Soviet years, when there was only one Chinese restaurant in the Peking Hotel in Moscow , for some reason called “rotten”.

The wettest part of the “wet” market is the one where meat and fish are traded. Sellers do not stand idle for a minute – they continuously cut meat, poultry, fish; the little that is unsuitable for food is immediately brushed off the floor. The heat is serious, so the floor is periodically doused with water.

There are not many markets left in the world where you can see live birds. Live chickens sit in a bamboo cage at a market in Kuala Lumpur. The butcher takes them out one by one, squeezes the neck and cuts them with a sharp knife – the bird flies into another cage.Chicken killed in this way is considered halal.

At the market on Penang Island, I came across black chickens. This is a breed of bird with black skin (not feathers), which is especially appreciated in Chinese cuisine, it is considered to be beneficial to health.

In the meat aisles you notice that mutton, pork and beef are sold separately. Muslim Malays (and all the inhabitants of Malaysia of the titular nation are Muslims by law) do not eat pork, which, on the contrary, is very fond of the Chinese and those Indians who are not vegetarians.But Indians don’t eat beef.

In one of the rows I photographed a whole cow’s head: it was placed on the counter by no means for decoration, as evidenced by a purely scraped cow’s skull – all that remained of another cow’s head. The Malays, and especially the Chinese, eat all parts of the animal except bones and teeth.

On Penang I saw counters with only fish heads – there is a dish that is prepared exclusively from fish heads.

There are Indian spice shops near the meat rows.Historically, Indian traders brought most of the spices to Malaya (Malays also adopted Islam from Muslim Indians). Gradually, the boundaries between ethical cuisines in modern Malaysia are blurring, and curries are often prepared in Muslim families.

The hostess does not have to puzzle over what set of spices is required for this or that dish, she only announces to the Indian merchant that she intends to cook today. He collects the necessary spices in bags and creates a unique masala just for the right dish.

Malaysians do not buy spices for future use (unlike tourists in Malaysian markets).

The last thing I can’t help but mention in this already marathon post is seafood and fish. The names of most of the fish that I saw did not tell me anything, since the fish themselves were unfamiliar.

Seafood is easier, they are international, and their names are easy to remember, like a rhyme:
-udang – shrimp;
-sotong – squid;
-kupang – mussels,
-trepang – he is a trepang, he is also a sea cucumber, which is especially appreciated in Chinese cuisine.

In Kuala Lumpur, food is where life is

90,000 Where to eat in Florence: the best restaurants serving bistecca fiorentina and Tuscan classics

The main Tuscan specialty – Florentine steak – is often mistakenly called “steak”. It’s all about the Italian name of the dish “bistecca fiorentina” , which is consonant with “steak”, although, of course, bistecca is not at all like it.

Judge for yourself, for the preparation of the correct bistecchi, 800 grams of not just marbled beef is required, but the most tender meat of two-meter white Chianina cows, which are bred in the Val di Chiana valley. By the way, these are not only the largest cows in the world, but also one of the oldest breeds, it is believed that they were sacrificed to the god Jupiter. Yes, that there, they say, it was these cows that Romulus harnessed to the plow when he cultivated the land on the site of present-day Rome! Today, Chianin cows are bred exclusively for meat and are not burdened with work.The pieces of meat are huge, about 5 centimeters thick, and each has a bone in the center. Grill the steak over charcoal as follows: 3-7 minutes on each side, and then 3 minutes on the rib. Salt and spices are not added during cooking.

I must say that the correct bistecca fiorentina is a real bloody feast, because in some places the meat can be completely raw, and the standard portion is so huge that even the most hungry savage cannot cope with it alone.Of course, this specialty should be tried only in proven places, otherwise the meal may pose a risk to life. That is why bistecca fiorentina is a real test for any restaurant of Tuscan cuisine, because if they do it well, then the local chefs, as a rule, also cope with ribolitta, pappa al pomodoro or pici (homemade pasta) with a bang.

In today’s review – 7 of the best establishments in Florence, where Florentine steak is made according to all the rules .


In my subjective opinion, for the best bistecca fiorentina in the city, you need to go to Dall’Oste trattoria . However, the owners often refer to their establishment as chianineria (chianineria ) – from the name of the breed of cows “Chianina”. The menu contains only steaks, but for every taste, and in addition to the Florentine Chianina, the owners of the establishment offer guests to taste meat and other valuable Italian breeds of cows.

For example, Piedmontese beef steak Fassona Piemontese . The muscles of this breed are very thin, and gastronomic magazines often call this type of meat the best in Italy. Or steaks from the meat of cows of the breed Romagnola (romagnola) – one of the oldest in the world. They were bred in ancient Rome, and today this type of beef can be purchased only in eight farms in the country.

Dall’Oste also makes steaks from meat Marcigiana (Marchigiana ) – this breed of cows appeared as a result of crossing of bulls from the Central Apennines and Romagnola cows, as well as from beef Scottona and Wagyu tipo Kobe .In a word, Dall’Oste is a place for connoisseurs, meat-eaters-professionals want and need to come back here to try other excellent Italian meat cooked according to all the rules after the classic bistecca fiorentina.

Buca Lapi is the oldest restaurant in the city.It was founded already in 1880, and is located in the former Palazzo Antinori wine cellar. All the dishes here are excellent, and the local Florentine steak is so good that it’s not a pity to sell your soul for it. And, surprisingly, bistecca fiorentina can be prepared here even in a mini-version designed for one person.

However, this is natural, because the restaurant specializes exclusively in Tuscan classics, so it is ideal for trying everything at once.For example, for a snack, you can order prosciutto with Tuscan crostini or antipasto misto toscano – all varieties of local cheeses, prosciutto and salami at once. In addition to the tomato soup pappa al pomodoro and ribolitta, reboiled vegetables, the main course includes papardelle with wild boar stew, baked duck and onions stuffed with pecorino cheese.

In a word, a true Tuscan feast, when everything is so tasty that you completely forget about calories, diet and other nonsense.The institution is open (like all the correct restaurants in Italy!) Only for dinner time: from 19.00 to 23.00, on Sundays Buca Lapi is closed.

I ‘Tuscani 2 is another real Florentine steakhouse. Of course, in addition to bistecca fiorentina, here you can taste the best Tuscan salami, cheeses, prosciutto and even truffles, but nevertheless it is steaks that are the main specialty of the establishment.All snacks cost 8 euros, and bistecca fiorentina – 75-80 euros, but if you consider that this dish is for two, the price is quite humane.

Restaurant with the telling name “Grilled”. Located in a palace built in 1300, which is located near the church of Santa Maria Novella.Bistecca fiorentina is one of the best in the city, and it is not for nothing that the owners of the Alla Griglia restaurant respectfully call this dish “the queen of the menu”.

Address of Alla Griglia Restaurant: Via dei Banchi, 25, 50123 Firenze FI, tel: + 39 055 2


The place is famous not only for the canonical Florentine steak, but also for other Tuscan specialties, which are excellently prepared here.For example, the local risotto with black rooster meat or pork dishes deserve praise: the menu includes both grilled fillets and a roll made from meat aged in Chianti. With pasta, everything is fine too; pichi in Tuscan pesto and ravioli stuffed with valuable truffles deserve special attention.

The word “cantina” can be translated as a cellar, but if you see it on the sign of a restaurant, then you should know that in this institution you can not only eat deliciously, but also have a great drink, because “cantina” is often not a simple cellar, but the very wine. The best Tuscan wines are presented in the cantina of the Li Latini restaurant, and all the dishes here are correct and traditional. The fame of the local bistecca fiorentina goes back to the 80s, the restaurant was opened at that time and has been flourishing since then.

In addition to the Chianina steak, the local ribollita, beans cooked in tomato sauce, and ravioli deserve attention. The institution is open from Tuesday to Sunday, it is open for dinners only from 19.30 to 22.30.

Li Latini address: Via dei Palchetti, 6R 50123 Firenze, tel: +39 055 210916, website:


Trattoria Coco Lezzone is a classic trattoria where you should try ribolitta, pappa al pomodoro and excellent artichokes.Florentine steak is also made here conscientiously, and the atmosphere in the trattoria is completely homey, so if you want warmth and comfort, then you should definitely look into Trattoria Coco Lezzone . One thing to keep in mind is that the establishment is closed on Sunday and Tuesday nights.

Address Trattoria Coco Lezzone : Via del Parioncino, 26 / r, 50100 Firenze – FI, phone: +39 055 287178,

Kuala Lumpur

Mainland or “Imperialist” Malaysia.

It would be reasonable to start acquaintance with it from the industrial center of the country – Kuala Lumpur. While still hovering over KL (as the locals affectionately call the capital), you will see the world’s tallest twin towers, the most popular attraction of the city, soaring into the sky.A lot of hype around the towers is not casual – “Petronasy” is really worthy of attention – consisting of 70% steel and glass – at night they seem crystal and weightless, and during the day they impress with their article and massiveness. The Twin Towers is the officially recognized center of Malaysia, although it has nothing to do with the geographical center of the country. But in Kuala Lumpur, you can rely on their location when choosing a restaurant for dinner and when choosing a place for a walk. The closer to the towers – the more expensive – this is the Kuala Lumpur wisdom.Although, if you know the places, then in the towers themselves (or rather in the shopping complex located at their foot) you can dine for $ 10-15 for two (for example, at the food court).

To save independent travelers from the hassle of choosing a restaurant for lunch or dinner, we have prepared a small selection of proven restaurants that guarantee excellent cuisine and excellent service.

Bijan Restaurant, conveniently located within walking distance of the popular Changkat Bar Street, opens closer to 5 pm and strikes with a romantic atmosphere and fine Malay cuisine.An ideal choice for couples in love and people who want to taste true national dishes. The approximate cost of a dinner for two is $ 60.

The award-winning Passage True India restaurant will delight its guests with decorations and full immersion in the Indian atmosphere. The opportunity to taste the unique dishes of Indian cuisine right from the banana leaf will give an unforgettable experience even to the most discerning gourmets. The approximate cost of a dinner for two is $ 50.

You can enjoy Indo-Chinese cuisine in the amazing Tamarind Spring restaurant, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, but with its atmosphere reminiscent of a fresh oasis among the stone jungles of the metropolis.The approximate cost of a dinner for two is $ 70.

To enjoy seafood and Malay cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere among the indigenous people of the country, you can visit the street called JalanAlor. But this entertainment is for the bravest who dare to taste frog legs, traditional Thai soup Tom Yam, the king of all fruits – durian, and other exotic pleasures. Here you can dine for $ 10-20 for two

For those who want a more relaxed and familiar cuisine, we can offer to visit the Italian restaurant ilFaro, located on the through floor of the popular Pavilion shopping complex near the overhead bridge leading to the twin towers.In this restaurant you can taste excellent Italian pizza, several types of lasagna and, of course, excellent coffee. The approximate cost of a dinner for two is 50 $

The KLCC shopping complex, located between the twin towers, also has more than one restaurant worthy of attention. Among them – Chili’s ($ 50 for two), which guarantees quality steaks and cocktails, Madam Kwan`s ($ 30 for two) – a restaurant with adapted Malay cuisine, and a huge cluster of bistros and cafes for every taste (food court).

In addition to restaurants that differ in their cuisine, there are those that attract visitors primarily by their views. For example, the Italian restaurant-bar Marini`s ($ 100 for two), located on the 57th floor of the tower, popularly called the “third tower”. Excellent Italian cuisine and a wide range of wines will pleasantly complement the stunning views of the city and, most importantly, the Twin Towers.

After we, albeit virtually, satisfied your physical hunger, it is worth thinking about mental food – attractions and excursions that are worth visiting in Kuala Lumpur.

In fact, the easiest way to get acquainted with the main sights of the capital is to turn to the services of a guide who, as they say, will show the beauty and tell the history of the country. If you prefer independent rest, then you can safely follow our instructions.

After visiting TwinTowers, you can start exploring the historical sights of the capital, especially since there are actually not so many of them, and they are located in the historical center of Kuala Lumpur – in the area of ​​Independence Square (DataranMerdeka).Beautiful buildings of the railway station and its administration (built in 1897), the palace of Sultan Abdul Samad with a bigben (built in 1897), the current Anglican Church of St. Mary (built in 1894), the “fountain of desires” brought to KL specially for the British administration at the end 20th century, national mosque with a unique dome, made in the form of a folded royal umbrella (built in 1961). All this is worthy to see, admire, photograph, and in some places (for example, in a church and in a mosque) even go inside.In the same place – on Independence Square – there is a gallery of Kuala Lumpur, visiting which you can see a model of the city at night illumination, see the history of the city “in person”, and, of course, buy souvenirs.

Near the Independence Square, there are picturesque streets belonging to the Little India area. On these streets, you can look into shops with elegant Hindu Benjabis and saris, buy various spices, try Hindu sweets or favorite Hindu dishes – roti pisam and roti chanay (thin cakes made of universal puff pastry, in the first case, served with banana and condensed milk, in the second – with various hot sauces).Lunch in this area will cost $ 3-7 per person.

After walking through the historic center, you can climb to the observation deck of the fourth tallest television tower in the world. The observation deck is located at an altitude of 272 meters and offers an unmatched view of the city. The ascent to the observation deck is carried out with tickets, you can buy them upon arrival and they will cost about $ 16 per person. The best time to wake up will be at 7 pm – you can see the city at dusk, as well as wait for the illumination to fill it up – a spectacle that will take your breath away! At 10 meters above the observation deck, there is a revolving restaurant Atmosphere, where you can also dine if you book in advance.It is true that the cost of a dinner with drinks will be about $ 100 per person, but this is a great place for honeymooners and couples looking to plunge into romance.

Lovers of heights will also appreciate the opportunity to climb the 86th floor of the twin towers and the bridge connecting the towers (172 m). True, it is more difficult here with tickets – you can buy them only in the morning, having stood in line from 7 to 9 in the morning. Tickets ($ 26 per person) are sold on the principle that whoever came first bought it. That is, the earlier you take the queue, the more chances you have to purchase a ticket for the ascent exactly at the time you need (ascent to the observation deck of the towers is carried out by sessions at a time determined by the administration of the “attraction”).Such a rise can be carried out on any day except Mondays and some public holidays.

The obligatory evening program should include a walk in Chinatown – a wonderful narrow street, where you can just walk, enjoying exotic aromas and ornaments of original architecture, and buy souvenirs, bansai, high-quality inexpensive fakes of branded bags, shoes, perfume. When visiting Chinatown, you should definitely look into the beautiful Hindu temple Sri mahamariamman, built in honor of Lord Shiva – one of the three main Gods in Hinduism.Near the temple for 1 ringit (as the Malay currency is called), you can buy a homemade candle so that, setting it on fire, make your innermost wish and ask Shiva for it. There is a lotus on the floor in the center of the temple – you should stand on it for at least 10 seconds – according to local belief, it charges with positive energy.

Speaking about Hinduism in Malaysia, one cannot ignore the main Hindu attraction – the temple in the Batu caves, located 12 km from Kuala Lumpur. But keep in mind that in order to get inside the temple, you will have to climb 272 steps – according to the number of wounds inflicted on Lord Murugan, whose 42-meter statue meets pilgrims at the beginning of the stairs.And also be ready to meet the monkeys – stock up on bananas or nuts – you can feed the monkeys as you climb the stairs. Next to the cave in which the temple is located, there rises a second – a dark cave – the entrance to which is carried out only with a guide and with a flashlight. There are no religious shrines in the dark cave, but there you can see bats, growths of stalactites and stalagmites. To the left of the caves is a huge statue of the God Hanuman (God of the Monkeys) with the temple of the same name behind.

There are a huge number of attractions in the vicinity of Kuala Lumpur:

  • Administrative capital of the country Putrajaya (or “city of the future” as it is called in the world), 30 minutes drive from KL.Putrajaya is the antipode city of Kuala Lumpur – no skyscrapers, the whole city feels fresh, light, and also – complete solitude. Putrajaya has a unique architecture, because 8 architects from different parts of the world “conjured” over it. A unique steel mosque, a majestic Ministry of Justice (more like a palace), a unique residence of the Prime Minister, 8 amazing bridges, a congress building that looks more like a flying saucer, Putra air mosque – all this you can see 35 km from Kuala Lumpur.I am planning a trip to Putrajaya, it should be borne in mind that you will need about three hours to see everything there.
  • An amusement park and the only permitted casino in Malaysia on Genting Highland, an hour’s drive from KL. Ideal for families with children and young couples. A large selection of exciting attractions will open to you at an altitude of 2000 m. The first of them is a funicular, in the closed cabins of which you will rise to this height. And then – whatever you want – in a special tube to experience the possibilities of free flight, to go into an artificial snow room, in which to ride on cheesecakes from a snowy mountain, to visit the museum “believe – not believe”, in which you really never doubt – believe whether eyes or common sense, ride the exciting roller coaster and more.To visit Genting, it is worth setting aside a whole day of hours from 9 in the morning.
  • The historical capital of Malaysia, Malacca, 2.5 hours from KL. For curious guests of Malacca, an opportunity to get acquainted with the colonial history of Malaysia, touching the buildings of the 18th century. The ancient and beautiful building of the railway station, the very first Christian church in Malaysia, the beautiful building of the red cross are the main attractions of Malacca. It will be most pleasant to get acquainted with these buildings from the local rickshaw.In Malacca, as well as in Genting, it is worth spending a full day.

All this can be visited either with a guide or on your own. But there is a nearby attraction in Kuala Lumpur that makes sense to evaluate exclusively as part of an excursion called Fireflies.

This tour with an intriguing name is a great opportunity to take a break from the hustle and bustle of an industrial city and plunge into the wonderful atmosphere of harmony with nature. Just over an hour’s journey in a comfortable car with constantly changing landscapes outside the window – and now, in the neighboring state of Selangor, at a working lighthouse, feed cute silver-leafed monkeys and watch the sun sinking over the water surface.After this tranquil scene, you head to a Chinese restaurant located on the banks of the Selangor River. Excellent seafood dishes are the perfect dinner for such an evening. With the onset of darkness, you go to the boat station, from which your boat will go to the world of fireflies, where for about half an hour you will have the opportunity to contemplate an incredible number of “living lights” that literally filled all the mangroves, and if you are lucky, you can even take a couple of fireflies on hand for more detailed consideration.

In Kuala Lumpur itself, in addition to architectural and religious beauties, there are four beautiful national parks – one of the world’s largest bird park, a beautiful and light butterfly park, a wonderful smelling orchid park and an amazing deer park. You can get to them by taxi, the cost of a taxi in one will be about 20 Malay ringits ($ 7). special attention should be paid to the bird park – a huge territory with beautiful landscaping and many wonderful birds, most of which freely fly above visitors and run under their feet.The entrance ticket to the bird park will cost $ 18 per person.

Chinese temples, of which there are a huge number in Malaysia, should not be deprived of attention. One of the most striking is the temple of the Goddess TeanHou, located near the old palace of the king (which, by the way, is also worth visiting as a museum). This temple is quite young, but it has a huge number of peculiar religious shrines – sources of holy water of the Goddess of Mercy, a turtle pond, a park of the Chinese horoscope, a statue of Confucius.Among other things, inside the temple, you can tell fortunes, leaving a symbolic donation, or purchase a candle of Fortune in the shape of a lotus. During the Chinese New Year, this temple is especially lively – red Chinese lanterns adorn the path to the temple from the road, Buddhist monks sit inside the temple and illuminate visitors with holy water, a huge number of believers meditate and pray in the main hall.

Once in the capital of Malaysia, you should definitely devote one day to shopping, because in Kuala Lumpur it is one of the best in Asia and, in fact, is included in the mandatory pastime program in this metropolis.KL has a huge number of ultra-modern supermarkets, shopping malls, shops and markets.

The main shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur are open from 10 am to 10 pm every day. Private shops can be closed as early as 18 pm.

Malaysia produces a wide range of handicrafts from fine silver, bronze and pewter items to ceramics, carpets and wickerwork. Batik is very good in Malaysia: silk and cotton fabrics are dyed in the most life-affirming colors.As for clothing items, in Malaysia you can buy not only the traditional costume of local residents, but also the latest collections of fashion designers, high-quality shoes, and exclusive optics.

3 best restaurants in Kuala Lumpur

Rumors about the total spiciness of Asian and, in particular, Thai cuisine are too exaggerated: it is not at all difficult to find a dish here that suits even an ulcer. Statistics say that 30% of Thais do not perceive spicy food at all. But in this case they feed on something.

The most delicious and mild dishes are Satay chicken skewers (served with a sweetish nut sauce) and Roti pancakes with different fillings – from bananas to tuna with herbs. These two recipes arrived in Thailand from Malaysia, and gourmet travelers are now flying to Malaysia from Thailand for other dining experiences.

In Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, in addition to the mandatory for all tourists visiting the Petronas Twin Towers and Central Lake Park, you can walk along the following route.

The first thing to do is to go to one of the Madam Kwan’s restaurants (the most famous is Suria KLCC Center, on the fourth floor, not far from those twin towers) . Here they serve the best Satay in the city and the most delicate “nasi lemak” – rice cooked in coconut milk. The rest of the menu items at Madam Kwan’s are also very tempting, but show your will, ask for the bill and move on.

Pork version of Satay kebabs is served at D Legends bar (24, Jalan Datuk Sulaiman, Taman Tun Dr.Ismail) – a pub with portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Che Guevara on the walls. By the way, the spicy dish here is New York-style chicken wings, but purely Asian dishes are not fiery at all and are suitable for Europeans.

Roti pancakes in a wide variety of variations can be found at the authentic Kanna Curry House Restaurant (29 Jalan 17/45, Petaling Jaya, 46400) . Cutlery is absent here as a fact, food is served on palm leaves, and you need to eat just with the help of unleavened Roti. The chicken curry here is one of the best I’ve personally tasted.

Aircraft of the company Thai Airways fly to the capital of Malaysia from Bangkok. A subsidiary of Thai Airways – Thai Smile flies from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur. Travel time is only an hour and twenty, flights are carried out four times a week.
