Never expected a temporary closure of Nagisa Japanese Restaurant at Hyatt Regency Kota Kinabalu on the New Year Eve (angry!), my girlfriend and I had to change our plan last minute to the Texas Grill Restaurant & Bar, just opposite of the Hyatt, last Tuesday evening. Most restaurants in town were celebrating the New Year, including Texas who only provided New Year Eve Special Menu! We ordered each of us a set of 3-course meal which was only priced at RM88++, per pax. Mixed Grilled (Tiger Prawn & Rump Steak) and a Aussie Wagyu Steak was chosen as our main dishes, which came with Caesar Salad, Mushroom soup and a Choc Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream as our dessert. The tiger prawn was really big and fresh! I never expected this as the price tag of this XL-size tiger prawn must be very high especially during year end! Points added to the wagyu steak too as we don't need any extra sauce to make it tastier! The chef definitely know how to cook this expensive piece of meat!

|BigFish's Aussie Wagyu Steak|
Came with Mushroom Sauce, Mashed Potato and Vege
The best dishes of the night!
|Not sure how much does it cost on the normal menu...|
|My Grilled Tiger Prawn & Sirloin Steak|
Came with Black Pepper Sauce, Fries & Vege
|The tiger prawn was sprinkled with sea salt and grilled to perfection. |
No extra steps needed to preserve the freshness of the prawn! So yummy!
|Tiger Prawn, big Tiger Prawn!!!|
|Never try to compare an ordinary beef with the premium Wagyu, head to head! |
Clearly there is only one winner here XD

I was surprise to find negative comments on the Tripadvisor.com but I remember my first encounter with the Texas few months ago was all satisfy without any complaint! I was expecting some bar quality steak here, maybe a little bit more outstanding than the Upperstar, instead of comparing to the Kudos Bistro or Ferdinand's. You got what I mean, right? *wink*
