The Cow & Chicken @ Desa Sri Hartamas

April 27, 2016

The Cow & Chicken succinctly delivers what its name suggests, concentrating on a shortlist of steaks & rotisserie chicken.

In this back-to-the-basics battle between bovine & fowl, the latter triumphs here - the roast chicken is enjoyable from the first bite to the final chew, from the irresistibly crisp skin to the irreproachably juicy flesh, blanketed with flavour. RM24 for a quarter, RM38 for half, & RM62 for the whole chicken. All mains come with bread rolls (fab - fresh, warm & supremely fluffy), frites (passable), a side salad & choice of bearnaise, chimichurri, Cafe de Paris butter, beef jus, chicken jus, or peppercorn sauce.

Sadly though, the steaks proved a miss for us - the Black Angus rib-eye (RM88 for 350 grammes) was gristly & executed in a manner that left us feeling like we were eating fried beef strips instead of a full-blown luscious steak. The grass-fed filet mignon (RM72 for 250 grammes) fared even worse, with a mushy mouthfeel & flatness of flavour.

Liquor lovers, never fear: The Cow & Chicken's cardamom-infused apple cider & Valrhona hot chocolate with marshmallows can be optionally spiked with white wine & rum respectively. Or simply fall back on the wine selection, offered by glass & bottle.
