Steak Frites in the heart of historic George Town, Penang is a great restaurant that fits the current trend towards nostalgia. The restaurant is part of 23 Love Lane, a beautifully restored boutique heritage hotel.

The steak takes pride of place in the simple and short menu. The grilled Australian beef tenderloin is served in melting cafe de Paris butter, along with a host of crispy fries, French baguette and garden salad.

The marbled beef marinated with salt, pepper, Dijon mustard and Lea & Perrin sauce comes with different preferences of sizes, priced at RM49 for 150g and RM60 for 200g.

The garden salad of local romaine lettuce is served before the main course with appetizing honey mustard dressing. We like the light dressing, made with just the right balanced amount of vinegar, olive oil, Dijon mustard and honey sweetness.

We had the 150g steak cooked to medium-rare with a smokey glaze. Full of flavor and juiciness, the steak goes beautifully with the melting cafe de Paris butter. This tasty herb enriched butter is prepared with a wide variety of ingredients. Parmesan cheese, anchovies, Dijon mustard, pepper, parsley, thymes, dills and tarragon are just a few.

We were recommended the Wamssler Sparkling Mead to go with the steak. Served chilled, the mead made with pure honey is deliciously refreshing. The restaurant is offering the mead with a buy 2 free 1 promotion, available from 16th September 2012 to 14th October 2012.

Steak Frites is a great dining place to return to. Its environment is a great place to dine in and at the same time there is a lot to see of the neighboring boutique hotel.
