With a name like Meat Garage, no prizes for guessing what this joint specializes in. Next to Grape Garage, this new place at Museum Hotel specializes in churning out meat, particularly a good steak while its neighbor has some exclusive wines on the rack. Both shops belong to the same management so you can be seated at either place and order any items from either shop. Back to Meat Garage, while there is a fixed ala-carte menu, the meats are actually on display at the display fridge. They are weighed and individually priced so you will need to head over there and choose your piece of meat. Once the doneness is specified, it will be served to you in a jiffy. The ala-carte menu is a little small and revolves around meat either so if you are not a carnivore, look for somewhere else. Price points are slightly on the higher side (especially after the 10% service charge).
We were very impressed with the cut we had- Angus Striploin... it was meticulously cooked to the right doneness with all the meat juices locked within. The outside was perfectly charred while the inside remained succulent and tender. It was carefully seasoned with the right amount of addictive and alluring charred aroma... one of the best steaks around. The sides however, were lackluster. We were hoping at least some greens but to our dismay, just a couple slices of Tomatoes and some Fries. For side orders, we had the Sous Vide Salmon and Caesar Salad; the former one was served on top of a bed of creamy mashed Potatoes. We enjoyed the crackling crisp Salmon skin with soft-tender meat but a pity that the fish was slightly over-seasoned... which we thought it was a little too salty to our liking. Caesar Salad was nothing out of the ordinary, just to balance off our diet.
