Lawry's @ mandarin gallery

i first knew of Lawry's @ Paragon when i was working at my first job - online advertising and event sales for a local wedding infomediary. Lawry's was a colleague's client then. even though i had never once stepped into the restaurant, i had always pictured a majestic 1930s themed expensive intimate place with an old world charm. whenever i walked past the full-length-windowed establishment, i would peep in and make a mental note to dine there someday, to experience the grandeur and glamour of it all, when a worthy reason or celebration arise.

somehow that never happened.

... until they moved to the new premise at Mandarin Gallery.
i recently received a discount voucher that was expiring end-March, so i decided it's finally time to experience my first time at Lawry's :) i asked a friend M. who gamely agreed, and we had a nice hearty lunch last Sunday at the new outlet.

i would have ordered the smallest portion - the california cut - but M. insisted that since it's my long-awaited first dining experience there, i had to order their signature Lawry's cut. and so i did :)

we both had our steak medium done (perfect for me) and additional sides (silverside trio) to go with it - creamed corns, buttered peas
and creamed spinach (this is my fav! finely mashed spinach subtly seasoned with spices, bacon and onion.. ooh yumm). each main course also comes with the signature famous original spinning bowl salad, yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes and whipped cream horseradish. so be prepared for a full hearty meal.

this is not really meant to be a food review, so i shall just let my pictures tell the rest of the story. still pricey even with the discount but all in all, a very pleasant experience :)
