The Maze Grill

Posted by: Wen Ching In: United Kingdom|Western Food

We divert now to a few establishments in London which we visited back in August. It was our last visit to London before our flight back to Kuala Lumpur, so we wanted to make the most of it!

Pierre Hermé macarons, The Maze
Whilst walking through Selfridges, we took the opportunity to purchase some Pierre Hermé macarons which we know to be good. On this occasion, we had a box of 7 macarons for £15 and consisting of, from left to right: Lemon, Licorice & Violet, Coffee, Apricot & Pistachio, Rose, Milk Chocolate & Passion Fruit and Pistachio. Our favourites were definitely the Milk Chocolate & Passion Fruit and Pistachio. Rest assured, one can never go wrong with these macarons!

Entrance, The Maze
Dinner that night was at Gordon Ramsay’s Maze Grill. We’ve wanted to visit a Gordon Ramsay restaurant for quite some time already, so we decided to have something a little fancy which we aren’t able to find back in Malaysia.

Interior, The Maze
Although one of the cheaper variants of his restaurants, the Maze Grill was still fancy and elegant with the waiting staff polite and very helpful.

Steak, The Maze
They specialised in steak here and the selection was top notch. Our waiter introduced the various types of meat they had and explained how each one would be like. The selection ranged from a cheaper (relatively) Aberdeen Angus grass-fed steak, aged 28 days to the expensive Wagyu ‘9th Grade’ Gold Style steak.

Bread and Butter, The Maze
Having placed our order, we were served some bread to start off with. We could tell that it was freshly baked. It was very good and did well to whet our appetite.

Chilled Gazpacho Soup, The Maze
To try a wider range of items, we got a 3-course dinner set priced at £24 from which we were able to select one of three item per category in the Set Menu. We started off with a Chilled Gazpacho Soup. It was served cold and had an acidic taste from the tomatoes in the soup, along with a touch of herbs which lent it an added dimension. We found it very appetising and enjoyable!

Confit Pork, Smoked Aubergine and Bok Choi, The Maze
The main course of the dinner set was Confit Pork, Smoked Aubergine and Bok Choi. We found the pork belly to be too fat to our liking and we would’ve preferred it with a better balance. However, the flavour of the pork itself was good.

Maze Grill Summer Pudding, The Maze
As for the set dessert, we chose to have the Maze Grill Summer Pudding. A blend of berries surround a spongey pudding, this was something unique to us. We found it to be just alright.

Creekstone Prime USDA Corn-Fed Rib Eye, The Maze
The star of the night was the steak. We ordered the mid-range Creekstone Prime USDA Corn-Fed Rib Eye, priced at £43. It was definitely pricey, but totally worth it! The steak was succulent and infused with flavour. It had an amazing texture when bitten into and was a joy to consume. We were glad to be able to try such a quality steak on one of our last days in the UK.

Biscuits, The Maze
Upon paying the bill at the end of the meal, we were served with some biscuits. The biscuits were sweet and crunchy and we thought it was a nice touch to round off a good experience.

Our dinner at Gordon Ramsay’s Maze Grill was enjoyable as a whole. It isn’t suitable for those on a budget, but we wanted to treat ourselves on our last trip to London before flying back to Malaysia. The steak was definitely worth every penny and it is no wonder why it is their specialty! We found that the steak was good and probably the wiser choice to order from the menu compared to the rest of the ala carte selection. For more information and bookings, do visit their website.

I have eaten at Maze (next door) before and it was one of the most memorable meals I had in London too.

Sean: Haha, it’ll probably be perfect for you then! It was quite fatty! =)

Simple Person: Maybe you’ll try some good macarons one day. We wonder where in KL can we find some good ones, though.

Baby Sumo: The macarons were delicious, along with the Maze Grill! We expect the Maze to be even better!

Vien @ We Dare Food: We heard about the Maze Grill in Melbourne. Unfortunate that it close =( Perhaps you’ll find yourself in London someday soon!

The Yum List: Hehe, the box is rather cute, isnt it? =P
