It is kind of crazy to think that this establishment has been standing for over three decades and still doing pretty well. On good days their restaurants are filled to the brim and one would need to wait in order to be able to dine within their nautically designed restaurant.
On good days, they have incredibly staff that are friendly and attentive. However there are times when the place is rather busy, they would be a little less accomodating but would often provide sub-par services like forgetting to refill our water or even forgetting an order or two. Though they are usually better than that and I have had more pleasant dining services than bad ones.
So for my sister's birthday, the Ship was automatically the first pick to dine at as it's one of my family's favourite place to get some good but affordable steaks.
For starters, we ordered half a dozen their Escargot Bourginnone. Don't be surprised if the shells arrive slightly broken because.... I presume that it's been used many times over after being heavily washed.
As the many times we have eaten this dish before, the sauce is always garlicky and creamy which is one of the best escargot sauce that I've tried. Honestly would prefer this kind of sauce over the regular butter baked kind. Especially since the warm complimentry bread is the perfect medium to use and soak up all the remaining sauce.
Now for our main course and always a must order is their Black Pepper Steak cooked to a preferred medium rare. Every time we request for our steak's temperature, it is on point and never missed the mark before. As always this arrives with a side of thick cut fries and steamed vegetables. The greens are nothing to shout about but the potatoes are perfect to dip in the black pepper sauce, soaking up every bit of it.
But the main star which is the grilled steak is always nice and juicy. Plus the sauce is always sharp with black pepper flavour that packs a good punch.
One of my absolute favourite thing to order is their Garlic Steak Parisienne. Which translates to a nice thick slab of steak smothered in really rich garlic sauce and cooked to a perfect medium rare. The sides again are always the same and I usually can't be bothered with it. But once again, I would lap up all the remaining sauce (if there is any) with the freshly fried fries.
As always the thick cut of steak is always cooked to how I asked it to be, perfectly medium rare. There is rarely ever any bits of fats that comes with the meat unlike some other places and to finish one entirely is very filling so it's nice to know that they have not depreciated their quality in order to gain a few more bucks.
A sentimental place this is for my family, so it's no surprise that we'll be visiting this restaurant again when we are in the mood for some good and affordable steak.
