Tuck Into 3 Succulent Dishes at Pampas Steakhouse at Old Malaya

Old Malaya is one of my go-to destinations to revel in a beautiful colonial setting with the majestic view of Kuala Lumpur Tower. After its successful refurbishment, this one-century-old heritage building has become an ideal enclave for aesthetes and foodies alike to be drifted back to the glory of yesteryears while tucking into the exquisite cuisine of its stretch of restaurants.
This time coming back, my friends and I decided to indulge ourselves in a unique dining experience at Pampas Steakhouse at Old Malaya. The restaurant oozes a cozy ambiance and nostalgic vibes, yet offers a modern touch in its dishes. We couldn’t wait to chow down on the best delicacies here! 


1/ CAAB Black Angus Sirloin (250gm)

Click here to view this free CABB Black Angus Sirloin at PAMPAS Steakhouse Old Malaya
Without hesitation, we quickly luxuriated in one of the much-loved delights at the restaurant – CAAB Black Angus Sirloin. A whole chunk of the perfectly flamed-grilled Black Angus beef (250 gm) together with grilled mushroom was set to entice our palate. The sirloin was marinated with the house special sauce and sea salt before being grilled to the diners’ liking. This fork-tender beef completely won my heart for its burst of flavors and impeccable taste. Dipped the juicy piece of high-quality meat in the chimichurri sauce (a classic Argentinian sauce) and you would not stop craving for more!

2/ Braised Lamb Shank

Next comes the Braised Lamb Shank which continued to satiate our taste buds. Every bite was as satisfied as of the dish preceding. This special lamb shank was slow-braised until it was succulent and soft. Unlike the rough texture that is often found in lamb shank, this delicacy had a fall-off-the-bone texture that mingled nicely with the creamy mashed potatoes and rosemary sauce served along. Something you should definitely keep an eye on!

3/ Herb Chicken Breast in Creamy Lemon Sauce

The final dish – Herb Chicken Breast in Creamy Lemon Sauce, was another dish that whetted our appetite. The dish, served with flame-grilled vegetables, immediately caught our attention due to the aroma emanated from the lemon sauce. The chicken breast was crispy on the outside while its meat was tender and tasty as it was infused with the tangy lemon sauce. The creaminess from the sauce excellently complemented the chicken breast, making it a delight that one should not forgo.

Who would not love to revel in enthralling classic French bistro favorites while being surrounded by a relaxed and cozy atmosphere? That’s why I was way more than excited to have a get-together with my colleagues last week at one of the trendiest bistro in Kuala Lumpur – Two-Ox French Bistro Bar.

1/ Espresso Braised Beef

Click here to view free Espresso Braised Beef Short Ribs at Two-Ox French Bistro Bar

We started our hearty affair with one of the exotic dishes here – Espresso Braised Beef. Simply presented, the beef totally got our attention for its irresistible aroma which was tempting enough to entice our taste buds. As its name suggests, the high-quality short ribs were slowly braised in bittersweet espresso sauce for hours before being served with fondant potatoes and king oyster mushrooms. The beef was a delight in the mouth as it had such tender goodness while its flavors nicely blended with the distinctly pleasant bitterness from the espresso. Something you should keep an eye on!

2/ Duck Confit

Click here to view Free Duck Confit at Two-Ox French Bistro Bar

Our next dish was the classic French dish – Duck Confit, which satiated our palate with its unique taste despite the unpretentious look. The duck leg was meticulously brined in salt, slowly braised in duck fat with fine herbs 
until it had a fall-off-the-bone texture. I was also impressed with the citrus duck glaze for its bursting flavors which was rave-worthy! The flavorsome duck leg was served with asparagus coulis, potatoes and grilled radicchio, making it a divine dish for any foodies!

3/ Cognag Foie Gras Terrine

Finally, we ended our indulgence by treating ourselves to a gorgeous dish of Classic Foie Gras Terrine! As this signature dish is made of 100% pure foie gras, the chef had thoughtfully mixed the pungent pieces of foie gras with cognac before snug-fitted into a terrine for at least 3 days to maintain its richness while keeping it from being overwhelmed in flavors.  Served with onion chutney and homemade brioche toast, this delicacy would make you crave forever more!

1/ Salmon Tartar With Quail Eggs and Caviar

Click here to view Salmon Tartar with Quail Eggs and Caviar

We decided to embark on our indulgence by treating the palate to something refreshing. And this signature Salmon Tartar with Quail Eggs and Caviar quickly enticed us just by its appearance alone! As suggested by its name, the dish features quail eggs and salmon tartar using high-quality salmon mixed with finely chopped cucumber and shallot before being topped with a generous amount of imported Norwegian caviar. I took a spoonful of the tartar, mingled with the house-made Thai chili sauce, sweet basil and this exciting combination was rejuvenating enough to excite my taste buds.

2/ Wagyu Pho with Buckwheat Noodles

Click here to view Wagyu Pho with Buckwheat Noodles at FOOK!

Here comes an interesting take on the classic Vietnamese Pho together with Japanese Soba – Wagyu Pho with Buckwheat Noodles. This signature dish is a ravishing reinterpretation of 2 cultures in one bowl. My eyes quickly fixed on the slices of high marbling Wagyu beef aesthetically put atop the buckwheat noodles. Pour the piping hot beef broth into the bowl and you can relish this magnificent combination. The melt-in-the-mouth Wagyu did not let me down at all while the buckwheat noodles surprisingly blended nicely with the broth. My small tip – quickly enjoy the bowl while it is hot to avoid the noodles being flaky! 

3/ Smoked Beef Brisket in Charcoal Bun

Click here to view Smoked Beef Brisket In Charcoal Bun at FOOK!

Finally, we ended our meal with the signature Smoked Beef Brisket in Charcoal Bun. I was amazed to know that it took 2 whole days to prepare this signature dish – the beef was marinated 1 day before being slow-smoked for another day! The beef was no doubt tender-to-the-bite as you can easily feel every strip of it. Its strong smoke-infused taste was then balanced by the sweet corn, parsley and house-made charcoal bun. A dish for those who love teasing the taste buds with intense flavors.

Tuck Into ‘Simply Malay’ Buka Puasa Buffet Dinner @ Bijan Bar & Restaurant!

What’s better than delighting the taste buds at one of your favorite restaurants? Not to mention it is a multi-award winning restaurant focusing on fine Malay cuisine which is much-loved by discerning foodies? That’s why I was contented to get an invitation from Bijan Bar & Restaurant to experience their “Simply Malay” Buka Puasa Buffet Dinner to rediscover Malay food heritage with a variety of soul-satisfying dishes and heart-warming flavors. 

View Bijan Bar & Restaurant EnvironmentThe restaurant welcomed us with its warm and lush interiors. 

Just a few steps away from KLCC, my colleagues and I reached Bijan Bar & Restaurant on a rainy day. The lush backdrop, artistic decorations, wonderful background music and attentive staff totally made it a perfect dining spot to cherish your moments with family and friends! We quickly forgot about the rain earlier and were gobsmacked as in front of our eyes were buffet stations neatly set under the golden-hued light, enticing with lines of enthralling delights that we could not wait to chow down on. 

My eyes quickly fixed on the Satay Station as I was seduced by the irresistible aroma emanated from the enthralling pieces of the grilled-on-the-spot satays such as Satay Udang, Satay Sotong, Satay Perut (tripes satay), Satay Daging and more. 

Click here to view Satay StationSatay skewers with fascinating sizzling sounds and tempting aroma.

Marinated with fine herbs for hours, the satays were infused with tangy flavors while still maintaining their moist texture despite the strong heat of the charcoal. I have to give it up to the homemade peanut sauce which was absolutely outstanding. The sauce was not only delightful with its moderate sweetness but also brought out the best tastes of the satays. Amongst all, the Satay Perut amazed me the most as unlike the common stretchy texture, this Satay Perut had such tenderness that one could not resist from savoring one more!

If you can refrain from the temptation of the Satay Station (which I failed obviously), you can embark on this hearty affair by tucking into some appetizers first. There are a variety of mouth-watering selections of appetizers for you to choose including Gado-gado, Getok Ubi, Keropok Lekor, Cendawan Goreng, Kerabu Nangka, Kerabu Betik and Kerabu Sotong Bakar.

I was delighted by the Gadogado (Lotek) for its ingredients which are light and refreshing – perfect for the start of a heavy (and yet lip-smacking) indulgence.

Not only did the Kerabu dishes excited my taste buds with the rejuvenating freshness but they also warmed my heart with their nostalgia flavors. 

Bakar Station featuring Ayam Golek, Ikan Kerapu and Lidah Salai.

Here comes the main dishes! If you are a fan of bakar delicacies, you would not be able to keep your feet on the ground (literally!). In front of my eyes was a 5kg Ikan Kerapu (grouper or garoupa) which was meticulously roasted in banana leaves! Dip its firm and smoke-infused meat into your favorite sambal and you would be elated! Did I tell you that there are up to 15 types of sambal here? Yup! You read it correctly! 
If you are adventurous enough, you can challenge yourself with the in-house smoked beef tongue – Lidah Salai or you can stick with a safer choice which is the Ayam Golek

Inspired by his mother’s recipe, Head Chef Razis decided to have an interesting take on the traditional Laksa by adding a little twist which resulted in an extraordinary flavorsome gravy. I crafted my own Laksa with a bit of sambal and it mingled with the Laksa perfectly. Don’t forget to scoop more broth into your bowl as you will not want to stop savoring this luscious gravy! 

Click here to view main coursesAn array of sumptuous delights with vibrant colors triggered my involuntary salivation.

Happily stuffed with a luscious bowl of Laksa, I shifted my attention to an array of traditional delights beautifully nestled in clay pots featuring Udang Masak Lemak Nenas, Ayam Kampung Limau Purut, Gulai Kambing, Rendang Daging Hijau, Nasi Minyak, Sotong Masak Hitam. The vibrant colors of these dishes promised bursting flavors in the mouth and with that thought alone, I could not stop myself from the involuntary salivation.

I started to pamper my palate with the Sotong Masak Hitam as its mysterious look triggered my curiosity. You might be reluctant by its somewhat unpretentious appearance yet keep in mind that the flavors will do all the talking! The squid was, to my surprise, superb tender yet not flaky at all with a delicate sweetness that lingered on the taste buds. 

Click here to view Bijan's main coursesRendang Daging Hijau is a must-try!

I have always been an advocate of Rendang dishes at Bijan Bar & Restaurant and this Rendang Daging Hijau is yet another lip-smacking Rendang dish to die for! The slow-cooked caramelized beef was packed with aromatic flavors that enticed my taste buds. The beef meat was no doubt fork-tender and juicy and each bite was satisfied as it oozed an irresistible sweetness.
