Malones @ KLCC


After months of teasing, Malones has finally swung its doors open, offering an array of scrumptious Irish specialties that should easily satisfy Malaysian palates and pockets.


Boxty pancake wrap (potato pancakes filled with slices of baked chicken, tomatoes, romaine lettuce and grated cheese). A fascinating recipe; the wraps were like a cross between Indian dhosai and the Chinese rolls for Peking duck.


Kedgeree (breakfast of stir-fried rice, poached salmon flakes and hard-boiled egg). This might look like local fried rice, but it had a very different flavour, thanks to the blend of traditional herbs and exceedingly fresh salmon bits in every spoonful.


Mussels simmered in Guinness and garlic. Absolutely addictive; the Guinness imparted a tangy taste to the mussels, soaked in a broth that we lapped up eagerly with bread.


Six-hour stewed lamb, carrot and barley casserole. A tender, hearty and wholesome medley of ingredients, but not as unique as the other dishes.


St Patrick's Sangria (wine, Jameson whiskey, fruit juices, soda), Baby Guinness (kahlua, baileys), Rum & Raisin (half and half, grapefruit, creme de cassis, dark rum).


Irish Flag (midori, baileys, peach liqueur), Irish Car Bomb (Jameson whiskey, baileys stout), Green Margarita (midori, triple sec, jose cuervo, margarita mix).




Malones,
KLCC.

  1. Weehee!! A decent watering hole in KLCC finally?! Some interesting pub fare there too... I am fascinated by Kedregee - is it regular long grain rice they use? I really need to try this!

  9. leo: for better or worse, klcc is the easiest mall to reach from my office :D
    no worries, this place is quite easy to find. just stroll outside on the ground floor, it's one of the outlets facing the fountain in the klcc park

  10. great array of food. 6 hours of stewing still rendered the lamb NOT memorable? hmmm ...

  13. Was at Malones a couple of days ago. Happy that they have Paulaner on tap, but sad that they had run out of it! Haven't tried the food, although the items on the menu look promising. I remember enjoying some good Guinness infused food in Dublin, and I'm not sure if this place is gonna bring back happy memories or burst the bubble! LOL.

  14. lemongrass: i actually hate beer, so i wouldn't be able to enjoy that brewski with ya. but somehow, i do like beer-infused recipes. maybe cos they're a way of jazzing up tired old dishes...
