Nestled in Bangsar’s leafy residential area on Jalan Bangkung is Lucky Bo. Day or night, the restaurant is cosy and inviting with low lights that really set the mood for a romantic date or a gathering of close friends.
Once guests are seated, the waiters explain the restaurant’s different varieties of beef, from type of breed to degree of marbling, and even assist in choosing the right wines to pair them with.
To start the meal, guests are recommended the baked camembert. The entire block of cheese is served on a hot griddle, its crisp outer layer giving way to a milky, gooey centre, which contrasts well with crunchy croutons, cubed pickles and potatoes.
The 300gm of Starbroke Sanchoku ribeye MB8 is definitely a highlight of any meal and it is recommended if you love the melt-in-the-mouth feel. With a mediumrare doneness, the steak is stunning in its simplicity. Lightly seasoned, with sprigs of rosemary and garlic to lend a subtle aroma, the quality of the meat truly stands out with each sweet and succulent bite.
A curious dish is the special tuak vongole spaghetti, which uses a fermented rice wine from Borneo instead of white wine. The tuak imparts an intense sweetness, enhanced by fresh clams, with a bitter edge. With al dente spaghetti in a spicy, clear broth, the dish is a light and refreshing complement to the steak.
A slice of rum and raisin cake, one of the restaurant's best-sellers, is a wonderful way of ending the meal on a sweet note.
