Of course, Gobo Upstairs has the benefit of a closeup KLCC view, and for a more aerial view, the Skybar upstairs, so really, this seems an ideal venue to spend NY Eve. Of course, it won't be cheap, but then again, it is a top notch hotel, and top notch venue, so as the Chinks would say, one ounce of money for one ounce of goods. (yutt fun cheen yutt fun for). So privileged to have been invited for a preview of the NY Eve menu, I reckon for the RM398 per person, the food you're getting is really good value.
Is it December already? Groan
If I was a cheapskate restaurant owner, and inviting a bunch of bloggers for a review, I'd fill them with bread and butter, BUT, in THIS case, there was sooooo much food and such generous portions, I don't know why the lovely Theresa even bothered with bread....Lovely as it was, I was not about to fill my precious stomach space with breads.
What can I say, ..Marinated Lobster with berries, apple and fennel salad. The lobster was divine, succulent and what luxury to have lobster without having to work through the layers of calcium that encase that precious meat. Okay, to be honest, that apple fennel salad was a bit heavy, so we have given our feedback to lighten it a bit. Tastewise the salad was fine.
Grilled 150 days Grain Fed Tenderloin, with truffle pomme puree, asparagus, brocolli, onion relish and madeira... There are only so many ways I know how to describe beef, especially a well cooked one. Flavours of the meat in tact, tender but still gamey, (as opposed to those super fat cuts that you can cut with a butter knife), the way a tenderloin is meant to be.
