Hemisphere Restaurant & Bar Regalia Residences
You would need both hands to count the number of rooftop establishments in Kuala Lumpur, but few offer the peace and privacy ideal for a private evening with loved ones. Circumvent the crowd and make your way to Hemisphere Restaurant & Bar.
Still very much under the radar, Hemisphere Restaurant & Bar is conveniently located in the heart of the city but comfortably away from the masses. Perched on the 37th floor of Regalia Residences on Jalan Sultan Ismail, this hidden gem provides an unparalleled view of the Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower. Whether you visit in the light of day or under the cover of night, it’s best to come with a camera to commemorate the picture perfect cityscape.
But the view isn’t the only Instagram-worthy feature here. Prepare to be impressed by Hemisphere’s sizeable selection of local and international fare. Whet your appetite with the Money Bag Tiger Prawns, bite-sized parcels of poached crustaceans served with a spicy seafood broth. Otherwise, try the Mussels in Curry Laksa Sauce – a true local favourite. Some stellar recommendations for main courses include the French Duck Confit, Norwegian Salmon and Black Angus Tenderloin, which can be topped with foie gras for that extra oomph.
End your meal on a sweet note with the Chocolate Lava Cake or the Coconut Crème Brûlée. Best of all, know that everything here is served sans preservatives or artificial additives. If you fancy a night cap or a midday tipple, the well-stocked bar carries a wide range of drinks from champagne to Chardonnay.
Want to plan a surprise party, a golden anniversary or a surprise proposal? Simply convey your wishes to the staff. You’ll be hard-pressed to find more helpful personnel, who will even go out of their way to deck out the venue with decorations. 37th floor, Madison Block, 2 Jalan Anjung Putra, off Jalan Sultan Ismail, KL (+603 2742 1098/www.hemispherekl.com).
