Southwest Traven

I came to know of Southwest Tavern through words of mouth from my friend. Lauded for its cosy and laidback environment hidden in the midst of the Tradehub buildings, this casual American Restaurant has a cowboy theme.

Decors with hints of cowboy adventures were well displayed in the area. What's more the place was airy with natural breeze blowing at intervals and not forgetting the big fans that keep the dining place ventilated.

Laid Back Environment

Staff over in Southwest Traven were helpful and friendly. Not only that they were attentive in topping up the plain water. Thumbs up for that.

Ice chocolate was cooling, it was blended on the spot and one could actually hear the blending sound from the bar counter. Chocolate Flavours were good enough and it was not too sweet. In fact, I love the feeling of having the icy cool glass of blended beverage as the wind breeze blows into my face.

Initially I thought that the Chicken Fingers were over cooked with its dark brownish fried color but as I munched on its first bite. I had a different perspective, no doubt it was hot,it was very tasty paried together with the bowl of mushroom dipping sauce. These skinless soft and tender meat played a very good bites while waiting for our main courses.

When comes to food, the portion were generous, the typical American portion and it is recommended to share for smaller eaters. Thus we had the slab of beef shared between 2 of us. Though it took quite some time for them to prepare the course but I would emphasize that they were worth all the wait. Meat wellness was cooked to perfection - medium well done! The glossy looking criss cross grilled lines on the meat were appealing. Sides were chosen by ourselves out of its menu and we had coleslaw and mashed potatoes.  Potatoes were smashed but traces of potatoes chunks were included which gave a different level of texture in it, what's more, the fragrant was further enhanced by the creamy mushroom sauce that was spreaded on top of it. Yum Yum!

Visiting Southwest Traven was enjoyable and perhaps it is located somewhere along the way back to where Im staying. Perhaps for the next try, I will like to try its beer butt chicken. However it is advisable to call in to do reservation as that dish requires a wait of about 40 minutes.
