Chinoz @ BSC

December 31, 2010

A welcome addition to BSC _ though for the sake of diversity, we'd probably prefer a menu here that isn't a complete replica of what Chinoz at KLCC serves.

But regardless of the location, Chinoz's offerings remain as tasty as always. The poached egg with hollandaise sauce & grilled jumbo asparagus is a decadent delight. Creamy comfort food.

Marinated raw yellowtail with lemon-infused extra virgin olive oil, macadamia nuts & salmon roe. Gorgeously presented. Recommended if you have no qualms about an oily dish.

Pumpkin & parmesan gnocchi with spinach & portobello in tomato ragu. Not bad; the gnocchi could have been fluffier, but it wasn't exactly stodgy either. And while we're usually not fans of tomato-based sauces, at least this one tasted somewhat wholesome.

Slow-cooked beef short rib with root veggies. Hearty, but could be more tender.

Mojito & The Chinoz Imperial (grand marnier, cognac, espresso, hot milk, chocolate & whipped cream). Can always count on Chinoz's drinks for a decent buzz.

Shizuoka Japanese green tea for a healthy touch.
It's been an excellent year for eating out in KL. Wherever you are reading this, whoever you are, here's wishing you a 2011 filled with as much happiness as your heart can hold.
