Aston's Prime Revisited
Mmmmh, this is what we should have eaten on Sunday. Nice juicy steak at Aston's Prime. Instead, we went to try this joint (which shall remain unnamed) and had lousy burger and ribs. Sometimes exploration isn't such a good thing, when you already know tried-and-tested places.
There, a much nicer cheeseburger with chopped mushrooms, and better fries too.
Close-up of the burger patty. Sorry I couldn't get a clear shot. I always have problems with the lighting at Aston's Prime. It's warm and cosy but hell for photography!
The cream of mushroom soup is a big hot bowl with generous chunks. But the slice of garlic baguette has seen much better days.
Actually, when we came here (this set of photos was from our second visit back in Nov 2008), there were very few customers at lunchtime on Saturday. I don't know if the recession will make business worse. Aston's Prime is still good value-for-money. Decent grub with no GST or service charge to inflate your bill. It's probably where I should go next time I'm craving steak and burgers, to avoid disappointment with other places.
