GAS­TRO­NOMIC GET­AWAYS AT LE MÉRI­DIEN KUALA LUMPUR

Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - EATING -

Lo­cated a stone’s throw away from KL Sen­tral, Le Méri­dien Kuala Lumpur was be­stowed a Cer­tifi­cate of Ex­cel­lence by Tri­pad­vi­sor in 2015 for good rea­son.

You’ll be hard pressed to find another ho­tel in KL with such a plen­ti­ful pantry. Re­ward your­self at Latest Recipe, Le Méri­dien Kuala Lumpur’s sig­na­ture res­tau­rant, which hosts grand buf­fet spreads daily. Sam­ple a wide va­ri­ety of cuisines from sig­na­ture Malaysian dishes to ex­otic plat­ters from far-flung corners of the world. De­sign your own dish at the pasta sta­tion or sup on fresh sashimi from the Ja­panese counter. While on the sub­ject of meaty mat­ters, why not make room for suc­cu­lent steaks? Le Méri­dien Kuala Lumpur is also home to PRIME, which was voted ‘Best Place for Meat’ in the Time Out KL Food Awards 2014. The steak­house, which sources its cuts from Aus­tralia, pre­pares prime meats within a strictly halal kitchen. If you’re in the mood for some­thing more ro­man­tic, opt for au­then­tic Ital­ian flavours at Favola. Favola, which trans­lates to ‘fa­ble’, is the stuff fan­tasies are made of. Ex­plore coastto-coast spe­cial­ties such as the Sar­dinian mixed seafood pin­giadedda and freg­ula, the porcini mush­room risotto, and the Ital­ian tiramisu with a recipe that dates back to 1956 while you bask in the res­tau­rant’s rus­tic am­biance.

Last but not least, there’s Gas­tro Sen­tral, a lounge and bar spe­cial­is­ing in mod­ern

Eat­ing & Drink­ing 2015/2016 pub grub, in­spir­ing flavour com­bi­na­tions, and ta­pas for ev­ery­one. Fa­mil­iar flavours get a makeover in the ‘Sa­tay Spices’ Chicken Ter­rine, while dishes like the Lob­ster Mac & Cheese ap­peal to both young and old. Stay for the three piece jazz band that makes an ap­pear­ance come night­fall. Still room for more? Visit Lat­i­tude 03 and Pool Bar & Grill@8, two equally out­stand­ing eater­ies at Le Méri­dien Kuala Lumpur. 2 Jalan Ste­sen Sen­tral, Kuala Lumpur, 50470 Kuala Lumpur.
