Aural @ KL City Walk

October 28, 2011

KL City Walk isn't the smashing success we hoped it would be, but some of the eateries here might be worth one or two visits.

Aural serves Italian & Western food, but everything on the menu that we wanted to try on a recent evening _ from risotto to cod fish _ was unavailable. We settled for a so-so salad comprising cashews, Granny Smith apples & assorted greens. The portion was massive, but its tame, vegetarian-friendly flavors failed to thrill the taste buds.

Creative candy-based cocktails are Aural's true attraction. Sugar lovers might adore the Kandi Bubble Gum (baileys, peppermint liquor, vanilla ice cream & gummy fish).

Surf To Paradise (vodka, baileys, vanilla ice cream, peach, Oreo cookies, Snickers).

We've got a hot one tonight: Ferrero Good Cheer (hot chocolate, vodka raspberry, creme de cacao, ferrero rocher, cream).

Will we return? Maybe not; the cocktails seem pleasant, but there's scant evidence that the rest of the food might prove outstanding. Let us know if we're wrong.
