Green Treats & Blue Chip

November 19, 2011

Taking a look at two outlets at Pudu's Swiss Garden Hotel: first up, Green Treats Delicatessen is supposed to be a health-food haven of garden-fresh salads, organic bread & wholesome desserts, but its menu is less wide-ranging than expected.

We settled for a sweet treat, since the high-fiber noodles & sandwiches that we sought here were unavailable or sold out on this recent evening. The cheese-topped organic carrot cake proved serviceable; moist & flavorsome enough to curb complaints.

Lambda juices: cranberry, blackcurrant & apple nectar, alongside carrot & orange. Guess this fulfilled our Vitamin C & beta-carotene requirement for the weekend.

Only a few steps away from Green Treats, the hotel's Blue Chip Lounge features live singing (the greatest love of allllllll, is easy to achieeeeve) & a fair selection of alcohol.

White Russian & Brandy Alexander, to send us off on our milky way. But really, nearly every hotel lobby lounge in KL seems the same, sticking to tried-&-tested-&-tired formulas.

For a better boozy binge, Ril's Steakhouse in Chinatown is a 5-minute drive from Swiss-Garden. Our latest indulgence here: the Passion Fruit & Lemongrass Vodka Martini.
