Hugo's On 6 @ Best Western Premier

July 30, 2012

Hugo's On 6 is Best Western Premier Hotel's haven for Mediterranean tapas and mezze.

Kick back in this sixth-floor restaurant's cavernous interior or lounge outdoors by the pool, watching the sun sink over both the KL and Petronas Towers.

Thrill-seekers can stomach the "callos y chorizo" _ beef tripe in a savory stew of sausages, chickpeas and smoked paprika, stirring memories of meals in Madrid.

Hugo's soft-launch menu is limited but nevertheless includes something for everyone. Always nice to nibble on air-dried tuna with Manchego cheese on toast.

Free-range chicken in garlic-paprika cream sauce. Not too memorable, but it's worth noting now that Hugo's prices are pleasing: this cost RM16++, on par with, say, La Bodega.

Baba Ghanoush, a comfort-food puree of oven-baked aubergine and sesame seed paste. 

Super-soft potatoes in a tangy tomato-sour cream sauce.

Chili Orange Martini and Negroni, executed with flair to spare.

Hugo's is open daily starting in the evening, with happy hours between five and seven.

All in all, not a bad stop, but many might criticize it for being less than lively. It's not the outlet's fault though, since it's still not on people's radar.

Hot night, wind was blowing; unfortunately, neither ripped jeans nor skin was showing.
