Mandarin Grill @ Kuala Lumpur Mandarin Oriental
March 10, 2010
Here's how two diners can enjoy a round-the-world trip in a single meal.
Boston slow-cooked lobster with sesame potato, dill mayo & balsamic. A light, wholesome starter with clean flavours, ideal for whetting the appetite.
Scottish salmon fillet. Too ordinary to justify its RM100 price tag; tasted like any other salmon that you'd find at a decent Western restaurant.
Alaskan crab leg & arugula risotto, with assorted seafood. Pretty much perfect; everything was fresh and flawlessly prepared.
New Zealand lamb duo, with roast artichoke, Yukon gold potato & lavender jus. Two separate lamb parts, though we're not sure which ones. The loin-like portion on the far right was our favourite, offering a fatty, fork-tender succulence.
Dutch veal loin with asparagus, porcini mushrooms & truffle mayonnaise. Meaty and flavourful; worth ordering for meat lovers who prefer not to gorge on an entire steak.
