Qba @ Westin Kuala Lumpur revised
April 22, 2010
One of the most vibrant settings to be found in a KL hotel.
Qba specialises in beef, as well as a vast variety of tapas for customers to nibble on while savouring the restaurant's salsa music.
Saltiest complimentary nuts ever! They could have been made entirely of salt.
Potatoes Rioja-style, with chorizo & olive oil fried egg. A super supper snack, with heaps of starch and grease to soak up all the late-night booze.
Freshly shucked Irish Pacific oysters with Latin salsa. Not the best ever, but good enough to drown out any oyster cravings.
Rocket leaves, Cabrales blue cheese, fresh figs & hazelnuts. A flavour-packed salad, with lots of luscious figs buried beneath a mountain of other ingredients.
Poached bone marrow with lemon jus & deviled quail eggs. Less thrilling than we had anticipated; stick to Dish for a heartier, more sinful version.
Pecadillo con Huervos (the "Cuban Nasi Campur"). A massive mix of white rice with beef hash, fried egg (again!), braised canary beans, plantain banana crisps, avocado, pineapple & cocoa bean salad. Might be tastier if the rice had been fried instead of being steamed plain.
Longhorn Tasman eye fillet with blue cheese fondue & braised shallots. Forgettable, despite the clear effort put into creating this recipe.
Wagyu eye fillet, wild mushrooms & truffled taro cakes. Coulda been more succulent.
Master Kobe sirloin with almond & apricot beignets & sea urchin sauce mousseline. Not as sensational as Kobe beef ought to be, though the use of uni was a tasty twist.
