Steak fans will relish chewing on the scrumptious Grain Fed Australian Beef Tenderloin with Asparagus, Roasted Pumpkin, Broccoli, Beetroot & Sauteed Herb Potatoes (RM49). Cooked medium rare as instructed, the beef was juicy to the bite; a complete meal on its own paired with crunchy vegetable and tasty potatoes. It came with Robert sauce - a concoction of mustard and brown sauce to enhance the dish's meaty richness.
Slightly fattier but equally delish is Grilled New Zealand Lamb Rack with Mint Crust (RM45) accompanied by side servings of asparagus, roasted Pumpkin, broccoli, herbed potatoes & the house Robert sauce. It was deftly prepared so we thoroughly enjoyed polishing every bit of meat off the bones.
Not a red meat person? Fret not, you can always plump for the Grilled Cajun Chicken Breast (RM33). A surprisingly agreeable slab of moist white meat, it's perked up with smoky Cajun spices; complemented by the same sides of earlier mains we had.
Salmon fishing in Underground Société will land diners this noteworthy Grilled Atlantic Salmon (RM36). Teamed with some lightly chewy pesto-clad Gnocchi and sautéed red & green capsicum, the best part was the fish's pink core - the spot-on doneness for this oily fish. Some folks throw their hands up in horror over what they see as supposedly raw or uncooked state but trust me, it's the right way to savour salmon. Despite my misgiving, the coating of Foyot Sauce (the cafe's version of bernaise sauce) went well enough with it. Those softened capsicum strips played a key role in lending some sweetness and muted fresh acidity to the fish.
If you're a sucker for Nutella like moi, you must sample the signature French Toast with Nutella (RM15). Although I deplored the inclusion of minty ice cream, the luscious taste of that mound of thickly sliced French toast with scatterings of fresh summer berries, floral petals, sunflower seeds and liquid Nutella dressing more than made up for that niggling element.
The Underground Fireball (RM12) turned out to be another 'bombshell' of the chocolatey kind. Set alight after a splash of alcohol is poured over the spherical chocolate, we broke into the crisp shell to find thick milky chocolate lava mingled with dark chocolate biscuit crumbs around a ring of scorched meringue. A decadent dessert guaranteed to melt the steeliest dieter's resolve. Live it up I say and just succumb already.
