Meathical, Pavilion Embassy: Sumptuous steaks, marvellous bone marrow, a Boston lobster degustation menu & more
March 3, 2023
We love Meathical's setting, with lots of natural light illuminating an effortlessly stylish space, perfect for a casual lunch or cosy dinner, scarcely a five-minute drive from KLCC.
Come hungry: The kitchen is spearheaded by three Malaysian chefs whose forte rests in contemporary European cuisine. Chefs William Teh, Lam Qansoon and Joshua Benjamin pool their extensive experience in Italian and French cooking, having honed their craft in respected restaurants in Malaysia and Singapore, tackling exciting culinary experiments at Meathical.
Lobster lovers, bookmark Meathical's Four Seasons Lobster Degustation (RM459), an imaginative four-course menu inspired by elements of winter, spring, summer and autumn, harnessing a whole Boston lobster from head to tail, embodying each of the four seasons.
Winter offers a captivating chill, manifested in luscious lobster tail sashimi, showcasing the pristine purity of the chervil-dressed crustacean, caught in the cold waters of North America.
The warmth of Spring beckons next, emerging as extra-decadent lobster bisque, beautifully briny, poured over a fleshy lobster claw, slowly but surely melting a dollop of Cognac butter, infusing an aromatic richness to the seasoned soup.
Summer heats things up further with spiced lobster squid ink croquettes, a crowd-pleaser that's crisp to the bite, creamy to the chew with a blend of lobster meat, cheesy mashed potatoes and Sarawak black pepper, buoyed by tomato coulis and crackly Parmesan tuiles.
The curtains fall on this degustation with Autumn: The mighty star of this show is grilled lobster in a duet of smoky succulence with charred lemon, thick with tomalley, brightened with a herbaceous lemongrass espuma to lend a citrusy frothiness to the firm-fleshed lobster.
Four preparation styles of lobster, all lip-smacking from start to finish!
For a faster, fuss-free encounter with lobster, ask for Meathical's off-menu Lobster Pasta, tossed in a potently concentrated lobster stock, generous with tender chunks of lobster meat.
If beef is your passion, there's a magnificent meal in store for you at Meathical too.
Desserts also display a distinctive touch.The Homemade Tiramisu (RM36) is crafted with three liqueurs - Marsala wine, Galliano and Disaronno amaretto - for deep, delicious notes of brown sugar, vanilla, anise and almond. Tiramisu might seem like a cliched conclusion, but this one breathes fresh life into a classic.
The Souffle Foie Gras (RM68) is also noteworthy, with pan-fried foie mixed into the airy baked treat, subtly marrying the savoury with the sweet for a delicate delight.
