KampungBoy and I had an impromptu date where I get an hour of notice beforehand. It led us to San Francissco Steak House at Damansara Intan who went from being a special-occasion restaurant to one equally suited for an impromptu date.
The restaurant is located in somewhat of a quirky location; a full of chaotic commercial area during the day and surprisingly a quaint place at night.

Velvety smooth and rich in flavor, the Mushroom Cappuccino with frothy top has definitely won my heart.
San Francisco Steak House offers an extensive menu but prices are on the high side and as such obviously we resorted to the value for money set dinner. The set dinner consist of caesar salad with chicken/soup of the day, dessert, coffee or tea with a choice of main (grilled tenderloin with mushroom sauce or béarnaise sauce/grilled sea bass with spinach and mass potato/spaghetti aglio olio with grilled kign prawns and asparagus) at RM 38.90++.
To cure our hunger pangs, Potato Wedges with Bacons are ordered. A not very wise decision I shall say, some of the wedges are hard and undercooked and it is sprinkled with lots of burned and charred bacon bits. My main of chicken is unforgettable too, bland and tasteless.
The declared winner was the grilled tenderloin of beef, with a melt-in-your-mouth cut and grilled to perfection. The sides of mashed potatoes and greens are delicious too. It may not be a good looking slab of steak, but you do get the ounce for ounce of satisfaction.
The restaurant needs to fine tune its’ serving timing though; we had barely been served our mains when we are done with the entrees. The gracious ambiance and the juicy cut of steak are the only factors that make our evening a memorable one.
