I never order fries on the side when I dine out until I had the golden finger-thick Truffle Fries (RM8) at Muugu. Flecked with fine shavings of cheese and chopped parsley, the truffle oil-scented fries are so sinfully delish and incredibly addictive that we forgot to snap a pix. This snapshot was kindly on loan from PureGlutton.com (thanks Chris!)
Air-flown Australian steaks are seared on volcanic rock at MuuguMuugu takes pride in their Australian steaks and beef lovers will do well with either Ribeye (RM42) or Tenderloin (RM55) done medium rare. Grilled to order on volcanic rock, the meat tastes best sans sauce. Accompaniments of fries, mashed or sautéed potato, greens (ratatouille or mixed greens) and red wine, black pepper, brown or mushroom sauce are proffered to complement their steak.
Happily, the Seafood Risotto (RM27) and Pasta Aglio Olio (RM17) also measured up with both dishes adroitly acquitted during our visit.
The runaway best-seller is the molten choc cake - possibly because sweet-toothed diners simply melt at the mere sight of all that gooey goodness! My only grouse is the 'teetotaller' Italian 'pick me upper' tastes far too sedate but hey, don't let me rain on your parade if you're a fan of that luscious treat.
