Valentine’s Day Menu at Meatology by Chef Yenni Law

We recently headed over to Meatology by Chef Yenni Law in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail to try the Valentine’s Day 2020 menu. Meatology by Chef Yenni Law is one of the top meat dining establishments in Damansara, with dishes that will undoubtedly satisfy most carnivores!

Chef Yenni has been in the F&B industry for over 20 years, including a stint in England and Spain. In December 2004, she took over the management of Boathouse, a little neighbourhood restaurant located along Lorong Rahim Kajai 14 in Taman Tun Dr Ismail. In July 2016, Yenni made the decision to rebrand Boathouse as Meatology by Chef Yenni Law, named after her first cookbook.

The establishment has a casual and cosy vibe, and serves a wide selection of meaty dishes and international wines from all over the world. The establishment specialises in steaks and pork; and is one of the very few restaurants in Malaysia, that flambé your food by your table.

Meatology pays homage both to Chef Yenni’s childhood growing up in an Asian home and the early part of her career being trained in French cuisine and later working abroad in Europe. Her cuisine is very much characterised by both Western and Asian influences, and she is the author of two (2) cookbooks to date (which you can view on the wall of the restaurant!).

The first cookbook which is entitled “Meatology” was published by MPH in 2015 and features only meat-based recipes. In 2017, Chef Yenni published her second cookbook entitled Her World Cookbook 2017 The Rice Pot in collaboration with Her World Malaysia magazine. This cookbook garnered first place for Best in The World Gourmand Award in May 2018 at Yantai, China. To date, Chef Yenni is the only Malaysian who won the first place.

That’s not the only notable award she’s won as Boathouse emerged as a nominee for the Most Innovative Guest Experience Award by the Hospitality Asia Pacific Awards (HAPA) in 2014.


Starter (choice of)

Luscious Oysters

A pair of freshly shucked oysters (one per person) topped with caviar. Opt to have it with the bloody Mary shot or on its own. This delightful starter will get the romantic juices flowing…


Lobster Bisque

This was a very hearty and flavourful bisque and a bit more filling than the oyster (above). It was so good we finished every last drop!


Mains (choice of)

Cheek to Cheek

Do yourself a favour and order a glass (not part of the set but you can add on RM10++) a red wine to go with this meaty dish! Tender and Iberico cheek bursting with flavour. Eat it with the peppercorn sauce! This is Chef Yenni’s culinary skills showcased on a plate!


Hot Stuff Baby

This was another perfectly executed meat dish and one that lamb lovers will surely appreciate! 



Flambe My Cherrie Amour

Get your phones out for this one as the dessert will be prepared tableside with lots of flambe action! This dish will set the mood for the rest of the evening. Order a bottle of wine and have a deep meaningful conversation with your partner.
