Chinoz on the Park @ KLCC

KLCC sometimes seems like a culinary wasteland for those seeking great food, but Chinoz is one of the outlets here that can provide relief.

Scallop crudos and avocado with hazelnut oil dressing and sea salt. A sublime, succulent spread _ perfect for whetting the appetite.

Freshly shucked oysters with citron vodka granita. Not especially exciting.

Black Spider Roe Maki (soft shell crab, tobiko and habanero chilli). A nice presentation of well-prepared ingredients, but the taste was strange. Imagine eating a maki with chilli sauce.

Basil tomato gnocchi with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and aragula. Not as light and fluffy as we would have preferred, but still tasty and filling.

Slow-cooked beef short ribs with garden veggies. Very tender meat in what appeared to be a healthy recipe with surprisingly scrumptious vegetables.

Bling Bling (tequila, pineapple, basil, apple juice & lime) and Bloody Mary.

Red Or Dead (southern comfort, campari, lime, cranberry juice) and Whiskey Squirt (bourbon whiskey, peach, Grand Marnier, soda).

  1. expensive is my only comment but the food is decent of course..

  2. yeah, whenever I have to dine at KLCC, (which is quite often!), I have no where to eat also. Gnocchi looks very heavy and stodgy though, while the scallop crudo looks heavenly.

  3. joe: true, but if we order wisely, we can actually keep the bill reasonably low...
    boo: i think santini is also pretty good, but not as comfy as chinoz...

  4. I agree with Joe...with prices like that, I might end up having to washing the dishes if I'm not careful! =P

  5. They have a pretty decent lunch deal... I think it's RM38++; food's still good, serving's a tad sparse though. What's up with KLCC?? They desperately need to do an F&B overhaul!

  6. bangsar-babe: no worries, there are lots of ATMs at klcc! :D
    550ml: hmmm, RM38++ sounds like an OK deal if you can get at least two courses and coffee...
