THE WESTIN KUALA LUMPUR

Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - KL & SURROUNDS -

On Mon­days, when the whole week stretches ahead like a dreary drought, gourmet piz­zas and home­made pas­tas sounds like a great idea in­deed. Mean­ing 'don’t men­tion it!’ in Ital­ian, Prego at the Westin is a wel­com­ing restau­rant with soar­ing ceil­ings and the glit­ter­ing city sky­line out­side your win­dow. They's a large cen­tral open kitchen where friendly chefs pre­pare your meal in full view. Good food, great wines, unpretentious fam­ily fare, Prego def­i­nitely de­serves Best Ital­ian at the Time Out food awards for a few years run­ning. For some com­fort food, con­tem­po­rary Can­tonese at Five Sen5es does the trick. With tra­di­tional and el­e­gant decor, Five Sen5es has five pri­vate rooms named after five Chi­nese dy­nas­ties. The ex­pe­ri­enced team tai­lors the dishes in line with the five hu­man senses of Sight, Taste, Scent, Touch and Sound. From del­i­cate visual feasts to crack­ling pork (mu­sic to the ears), much thought has gone into the cre­ative menu. Don’t for­get their va­ri­ety of teas, from herbal in­fused blends to rich Oo­longs. Toast to the week­end with a Daiquiri in hand at Qba, home to finely grilled steaks and wines. Di­vided into four ar­eas–Latin Grill, Wine and Cigar Lounge, an Is­land Bar and an al­fresco court­yard, Qba’s menu is a re­flec­tion of what the Latin Amer­i­cas is about– a melt­ing pot of bright in­gre­di­ents and vivid sea­son­ings. That’s all very good, but at Qba, we’re here for the meat. From An­gus to Wagyu and New York sir­loin cuts, we say cut through the fat and go for their sig­na­ture steak tast­ing plate for a cel­e­bra­tory feast. 199 Jalan Bukit Bin­tang (03 2773 8338/www. thewestinkualalumpur.com).
