NY Steak Shack @ IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

NY Steak Shack is an outlet that has been in Malaysia for at least 2 years now. When they first opened in Mid Valley, I was one of their earliest customers then and I was in love with the food. Parking being a huge problem in Mid Valley has deterred me from visiting them more often. Luckily they now have an outlet in IOI City Mall too. This outlet in IOI City Mall is located on the Lower Ground Floor, quite close to the centre wing of the mall. The moment you come down the escalators, you would be able to see this outlet. The place was definitely buzzing with customers. I wonder if business is so good all day round, seven days a week. Despite being almost full house, their customer turnover was fast and that ensured that the wait time wasn't too long. 

The above are just a few pages from their menu. Burgers, Steaks, Grilled Chicken, Grilled Lamb, Pastas etc. Pretty much most of the famous Western dishes in Malaysia were covered by them and the prices seemed very reasonable. In fact, it wouldn't be wrong for me to say that it was cheap.

Berry Candy Lemonade @ RM 9.90

Pepsi @ RM 6.90
Although the food is cheap, their drinks are on the high side. A tall glass of Pepsi was priced at RM 6.90 which is steep. Coke lovers, do note that this restaurant does not serve Coke.Their Berry Candy Lemonade was pretty good and my rating for that shall be 8/10. 

Mushroom Soup
Their Mushroom Soup is usually priced at RM 5.90 but today, they had some promotions and it came complimentary. Taste wise, it was the best Mushroom Soup that I have tasted in a fast food joint. It was so good, concentrated, comes with lots of diced mushrooms and is not one of those off the can stuffs. In fact, I would say that it was even better than many of the high end western restaurants too. My rating for this shall be 10/10. A must try here!

Southwest Chicken @ RM 18.90

Delicious Dip Sauce

Two huge pieces of chicken were grilled to perfection and served with fries and mashed potatoes. Once again, the choice of sides is yours. The chicken itself was so tasty, I loved the marination and it sealed the taste with a zing. For the price of RM 18.90 , the portion was huge. My rating for this is definitely 9/10. Another delicious one to try here. 

Grilled Lamb Shoulder @ RM 33.90
Their Grilled Lamb Shoulder was impressive as usual. A huge, thick cut of lamb served on a hot plate with baby tomatoes and onions, and with French Fries and mashed potatoes on the sides. Actually, you could have your choice of sides based on those available. Portion wise, both the sides were huge and they were tasty. I would rate their Mashed Potatoes at 9/10 and the Fries at 8/10. Coming back to the lamb itself, for this size, you would not be able to find one under the price of RM 50 anywhere else in Malaysia and most of the branded restaurants have upped their price to around RM 70+ for the same. I would say that this is a brilliant dish to have here. Loved the portions, perfect marination and cooked just right. The meat was tender, juicy and not chewy at all. This definitely deserves a 9/10. 

Ice Cream
Being part of the set meal, the Ice Cream too was complimentary. This was a scoop of Coconut Ice Cream and I felt it to be quite good. The texture was slightly coarse due to the nature of grated coconut but taste wise, it was nice. 8/10 would be my rating for this. 

If you're looking for some good Western cuisine for the fraction of the price that you would pay at those branded restaurants, then NY Steak Shack is the place. The food is good, huge portions, very reasonable prices and excellent customer service. Oh yes, do not miss their Mushroom Soup. It's really something!
