Hemi­sphere Restau­rant & Bar Re­galia Res­i­dences

Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - EATING -

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).
