Mandarin Grill @ Mandarin Oriental Hotel Kuala Lumpur
February 11, 2010
Mandarin Oriental's new outlet is in a league of its own _ this really is one of KL's best restaurants ever, with a menu that transcends the typical offerings and a setting that raises the bar for every other establishment in this city.
Whole Dover Sole Meuniere. A classic recipe that isn't often found in our country. This fits the bill for what it should be: light, moist and mild-tasting.
Garlic asparagus, sea salt baked Russet potato & orange beurre blanc sauce.
1824 Australian grain-fed, 120-day-aged 25o-gram tenderloin. Lots of numbers there, but the key figure is "1824" _ a reference to an elite, hand-trimmed prime beef that supposedly isn't available anywhere else in Malaysia. Tender meat, with a robust flavour.
Side dishes of roasted baby artichokes, basil crushed potatoes & foie gras sauce.
Further accompaniments of flavoured salt, pepper & vanilla seasoning.
