Aston's Prime Revisited

Steak!
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.

Cheeseburger at Aston's Prime
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!

Cream of mushroom soup, with slice of bread that's seen better days
The cream of mushroom soup is a big hot bowl with generous chunks. But the slice of garlic baguette has seen much better days.

The unsalted herbed butter
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.

  2. True, *anticipating the hints for the burger joint that disappoints*

    I understand the disappointment when trying out new places and most of the times, we just regret not going to the tried-and-tested places... The same thing goes to desserts too...

    Before this post, the photos on flickr has already gotten my attention, the steak looks generously thick and the mushroom shop looks good as an appetitizer...

    Even though it was mentioned in your blog that the lighting is warm, your photos has never fail to make me crave for savoury food...
