InterContinental Lounge

Since hotel lounges customarily offer unimaginative fare, InterContinental should be lauded for going against the grain. Alas, the results taste lackluster.

Goose liver mousse on Belgian endives with grapes & walnuts. Sounded like a must-try on paper, but proved underwhelming on the plate. The mousse came out like a cross between margarine and icing, with scarcely a scent of foie gras.

Green rice bread burger with Cameron Highlands organic kyuri, Boston lettuce, tomato, arugula, guacamole & feta cheese. Hearty, but shockingly salty. Despite the abundance of veggies, this somehow felt only marginally healthier than a regular meat burger.

Chilean Carmen Classic Merlot.
