Highlands Steakhouse

Finally, we got to try Highlands Steakhouse at Mall of Asia. I have heard and read so much about this restaurant, reading more raves than rant, so I was excited to finally get the chance to judge it for myself.

There were so many choices on the menu that even Yoshiko had a tough time ordering.

... the bread came first... then the clam chowder (Mon's favorite)...
This, I loved! The dressing was creamy and with just the right tang I want in my Ceasar's salad. And the croutons are very tasty. I would have been happier if they used romaine lettuce though.

Then came our main orders... each of our plates was brimming with all these mouthwatering and scrumptous food!

To gravy or not to gravy was Yoshiko's dilemma. The steak was definitely tender and cooked just the way I wanted mine, medium-well. Juicy and not dry, sweet and flavorful. Now I know what the raves are all about.

It is one of the better steaks I have tried.

  2. We ate at their Tagaytay branch before.. Must say love the ambiance!! Love their baby back ribs too!! This is making me hungry na! :D

  3. Sis, if you don't mind me asking, how much per head? Was gonna check and compare it with other steak houses. :)

  4. ness, thanks for the invite! i cant promise but i would really try my best ha...

    u8mypinkcookies, my friend has been inviting us there too but havent got the chance to try Tagaytay. layo kasi eh... pricey but yumminess naman...

    mindy, alam mo bang i was so angry at myself... kasi i took some nice shots of the menu to share the price nga; then after i posted my shots at flickr, i accidentally deleted the photos! buti na lang i was able to post the photos agad at flickr. kung nagkataon, everything got erased!
    well anyway, we ordered the small rib eye steak lang... if i remember it right, twas around 1300 to 1400 ata. then the bigger size was like 1600 plus plus...
    there was one item on the menu na more than P2T ata... sorry ha, i couldnt recall well... tagal na kasi to eh...

  5. Lately I noticed that I enjoy looking at the picture of a juicy steak more than a bikini clad beauty basking in the sun. Is there something wrong with me or am I just getting too old? LOL.

  6. oh very inviting. made me hungry again gitz.

  7. Looks good. How's are the prices?

    photowalker, medyo pricey if you ask me... kaya nga, next trip back there would probably be sometime in the latter half of the year. hahaha...

  9. Hi Gita!
    My goodness, the steak really looks so good. Plus Mall of Asia is just about 5 minutes from where I live whenever I'm in Manila. Will surely try this.

  10. bugsybee, it is actually one of the good ones ive tried, though one of the priciest too. haha...
    more than the taste, it is the tenderness of the meat that impressed me. let us know how your dinner goes ha... ;-)
