The Real Score: Not Your Usual Food Reviews – More Steaks and Noodles


Following on with our last review, we’re putting in another batch of steaks and noodles. Not that we’re looking to make a pattern, we’re just inadvertently eating these dishes quite possibly because of the wet season. But hey, even so, we’re still on to go out and find which of them fits our budget, satisfies our tongue and fills up our bellies very well.

In this set, we have a steak, a rice topping and a noodle dish. These are not categorized by the type of restaurant or even the price range, but rather randomized based on merely what was available at any given time. They are judged by the following numbers:

Each dish are scored based on the following criteria:

Now that you have somehow an overview of how they were scored, let’s get on with the dishes shall we?

Location: Siknoy

Food: Fried Pork Chop Rice Toppings

Sides: Kropek

Drink: Iced Tea


There is nothing special about this dish. It is the usual breaded pork chop and the breading does not give any special taste that would make you want for more or warrant another visit for the same dish. The Kropek sides seems a little bit oily for me though.


Location: Marble + Grain

Food: Sirloin Steak (200g)

Sides: Mashed Potato

Drink: None

Worth another try – with a different grilling level


Ordered medium rare for this steak. The marinade seems OK and the chewiness of the meat made me a little bit uncomfortable. I am not an expert on steaks (eating it for that matter) but probably sirloin steaks need to be at the well-done level not on the rare level. The 200g size did not fit well with my appetite of course because of my small frame. Still worth a second visit to try out other grilling levels.


Location: Modern Shanghai

Food: Onion Mein

Sides: None

Drink: None

A clever way to serve noodles


Not too sure about the right taste on this dish but the fact that the soup and the noodles were served separately was actually interesting. It is not worth trying out again though.


These dishes may or may not fare well to you so it would still be best to try it out by yourself. After all, eating out is still an adventure that is best done with mere interest!

So, where to next? Stay tune for our next food adventure!
