San Francisco Steak House, Midvalley

Yes, I am photographing food.

Yes, it's a hobby of mine.

Yes, I maintain a food blog.

Yes, I post pictures I took on my blog.

Yes, I know it's your birthday.

Yes, I'll take a few shots of you to choose from.

Yes, I'll advertise your attractive face in my blog, together with not so handsome ones.

Yes, I'll mention single available & looking.

Yes, I realise I'm risking having the privilege to dine on your expense revoked for life by claiming such request came from you.

So folks, with such a prologue it is obvious I have to make this quick and start packing to stow away on the next budget flight - pity it's not Macau. *sigh*

No plans to celebrate since it was a few days passed the actual day. And Mr Attractive had been toasted '3 hari 3 malam' (3 days & nights). Then again, why not. This established restaurant serving western fare may present something interesting. So, told the manager before belated birthday boy (ahem) man's arrival.

We had:-

Carrot Orange Juice. Half drank.Mango Juice (No sugar no ice. Mine. Upfront) and Starfruit Juice (behind). With the complimentary bun and butter.Cappucino (Mr Attractive's. Classy huh).Garlic Bread.Lobster Bisque. Flavourful.Prawn Cocktail. Just love the thousand island dressing.Pan-fried Asparagus with Garlic. Young and sweet.Canadian Cod Fillet. My main. Somehow I found it a tad too fishy so Phitoy did the honour of cleaning the plate - finishing the meal.Kurau and Salmon (Grilled).Wagyu Beef (Grilled). Mr Attractive's choice. I took a bite, *swoon*. See the price, *dizzy*.Lamb Chop. Was there 2 or 3 pieces? One was delicious, the other(s) err, how to say smell too strong of mutton (In cantonese, 'chou-sou')? Mentioned to the manager. His reply, 'Oh, there were some complains before but it is like that.'(-_-)" Maybe they should put that as a warning in their menu.

Now to the interesting bit. The manager, together with 2 staff brought out a Chocolate Brownie and sang a pretty good rendition of the obligatory Happy B'day song. Think this trio practiced for such occasions. Then to our surprise, the manager whipped out a camera and took our group photo citing for remembrance. In a couple of minutes, he gave Mr Attractive a cardboard frame picture which can stand on its own. Good call! Oh, Mr Attractive (for those who are blind), is the one on the left in striped shirt. The others? Just there to fill up the space & of course, for comparison. =P

Our bill (10% discount with Tai Thong privilege card):-The address (taken from the back of the cardboard photo frame):-Oh, I'll be away for almost a fortnight. Yes, on a budget flight. Serious.

I'll shout when I am back.

Everybody, eat well. I know I will.

Where are you going? I seriously need a vacation for all my recent business trips...

The thing about everything San Francisco is really BS. Used to live in SF and there was no SF Coffee, SF Steak House...marketing gimmick, plus SF is not really famed for steak anyway. ;)
