Harrods @ KLCC

April 20, 2009

Look closer: Harrods @ KLCC isn't a mere retail store. Tucked away at the back is a cosy, elegant restaurant and bar.

It's an oasis of serenity compared to the mall's other sardine-packed eateries.

Grab a table with a view of the fountain for the best seat in the house.

Photographs evoke a sense of history that heightens the outlet's classic feel.

The English cuisine options range from satisfactory to stellar. 
Smoked salmon came in a creative three-style presentation. Our favourite was the salmon tartare, which was loaded with velvety avocados underneath.

Roast Barbary duck. Superbly tender. The meat's reputation as an even more flavourful alternative to regular duck is well earned.

The Harrods Roast, comprising medium-rare ribeye with Yorkshire pudding. 
Everything on this plate was scrumptious, from the thickly sliced beef to the house special soft-boiled potatoes and Brussels sprouts. Seems like an old-fashioned, boring choice, but it was the best version of this recipe I've ever had!

A combo of Harrods Darjeeling No 26 sherbet, lemon myrtle sherbet and Harrods Blend 49 tea ice cream. A sweet ending to a surprisingly strong meal. We loved the creamy ice cream, which was smooth and subtly tinged with tea.

Sea Breeze (vodka, grapefruit and cranberry juice) & Hemingway's Daiquiri (white rum, maraschino liqueur and grapefruit juice).

Suria KLCC.
