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)
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.
