Black Bull, Ayers Rock & Whisky Tango Foxtrot @ Avenue K

March 21, 2014

Avenue K's newly revamped top floor still has plenty for hungry visitors to explore; some might start at Black Bull, a spacious restaurant & bar with a few fun facilities ...

... including pool tables & a bull-themed bowling alley (!) that explains this eatery's name.

The tapas selection includes calamari with harissa & garlic aioli sauce (RM25), a recipe that kinda sounded better than it looked & tasted. Perhaps several of the other items might fare better: there's everything from Tex-Mex burgers with jalapeno peppers & tomato salsa to seared duck breast with red wine reduction.

The cocktails could be more potent: Amaretto Espresso Martini (amaretto, kahlua, smirnoff vodka, espresso) ...

... & Toblerone (creme de cacao, frangelico, bailey's irish).

Also now on this level at Avenue K: The latest branch of the Ayers Rock steak chain.

Plenty of meat available; unfortunately, wine isn't served at Ayers Rock.

Still, the steak's satisfying, a quality cut that's flavourful & juicy, prepared competently ...

... & partnered heartily with potatoes & a fresh-tasting salad.

The final stop for now: Whisky Tango Foxtrot, a whisky & cigar lounge that's accessible through this phone-booth entrance inside Samba Brazilian Steakhouse.

And yep, it's also a branch, this one of the original WTF at Medan Damansara.
