Salam. It gets most peeps to be away from home to appreciate the luxuries of Halal F&B Malaysia has to offer. And to 'suffer' the irony of not being able to eat Western food in the Western countries?
It's in a lesser degree of missing simple but awesome Nasi Lemak back home.
But it could get nastier if you stay in the West more than a week. Not having Nasi Lemak is one thing, but can't get hold of Western food at the same time is one heck of another thing altogether.
So when there's a steakhouse that serves halal F&B in the soil of the Kangaroos, we were ready to hit the road anytime at all. Even if it means FOUR straight hours in the van, we didn't mind a bit. The Volcano's Steakhouse & Ribs was highly recommended by our guides, Mus & Yun, and we couldn't agree more. The journey to Bankstown, New South Wales was worth every single mile.
The Menu is of 3 divisions, i.e. Main, Dessert & BodyBuilders. But just like in Europe, they only served cold drinks. No hot lattes for us, unfortunately. I mean, I didn't get it... How could they drink ice in freezing winter?
My choice: Volcano's Rib-Eye with Hot Lava Sauce. Yummeh...!
But of course, it wasn't hot enough for me. It would have been better with Malaysian definition of Hot & Spicy. The land of CILI PADI and SAMBAL BELACAN.
My drink? Mineral water would do, thank you.
The portion was too big for me. It was so very delicious, but a way too big a portion. So, it flew to Mus' and Yun's plates interchangeably. Hehehe. They were my saviors. We went home happy kids on the block. Alhamdulillah.
Next time you guys in Sydney, this place is a must-go eatery. That's all for now, folks. Thanks for being with me, love you for that.
Yours truly, TPJ.
