Marquee @ Bukit Bintang & Grid 9 Gastropub @ Maharajalela
November 23, 2013
Checking out a couple of places downtown that serve late dinners comprising offbeat recipes, starting with Marquee, a recently launched restaurant & lounge at Bukit Bintangs BB Park.
The top temptations the Tommy Gun Burger: French toast topped with beef patty & brown sauce (RM25++). It works, sorta; the kind of hot mess thats worth at least a few bites.
For more familiar comfort food, Sarawak laksa (RM18++) is offered; might not be the best in town but unlikely to be the worst.
Cocktails come in the customary Cosmopolitan & Mojito forms.
A ten-minute drive from Marquee, theres a quieter retreat to be found at the ground-floor gastropub of Grid 9, a new backpackers hotel near the Jalan Maharajalela monorail station.
Malay Tex-Mex? Tacos stuffed with spicy sambal prawns, lettuce & tomatoes (RM10). (Relatively) cheap & (fairly) tasty.
Wine & hard liquor are both available at Grid 9.
