Lucky Bo

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Malaysia’s Best Casual Eats -

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.
