JP Teres @ Grand Hyatt

Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur has launched a restaurant wholly dedicated to Malaysian cuisine, spanning everything from otak-otak to char kuey teow and tandoori chicken.

JP Teres boasts a lovely layout, with both an air-conditioned interior and an alfresco area in the shadow of the city center's skyscrapers.

Show kitchens form the centerpiece of this eatery, enabling customers to watch their satay being flame-grilled, noodles being wok-fried and their roti canai tossed.

Lamb satay (RM18++ for six sticks), irresistibly chunky and irreproachably marinated.

Oyster omelet (RM20++), more flavorful than we thought a halal version would be.

Ice cream sandwich, a localized interpretation featuring a brick of fragrant 'teh tarik' flavor in between crisp 'love letter' rolls. Excellent.

Cocktails to partner perfectly with satay: Lemongrass Martini and Ginger Ale Pimm's Cup.


Needing more liquor, we took the elevator up 38 floors to Thirty8. On a haze-free afternoon, it's nice to see the hills beyond KL's office buildings.

A place to examine the difference between a Caipirinha and a Caipiroska (RM30++ each).


Main entry on Thirty8's food: August 27, 2012.

  2. The satay looks so plump when you compare them to the ones you'd get elsewhere!!!! ohhh they should have a Neapolitan Malaysian style ice cream - 1/3 milo, 1/3 the tarik, 1/3 kopi! that would be interesting hehe "high class mamak" :P

    1. Baby Sumo: it's nice! but i think you'd need to order one for each of your children. not something that's advisable to share, cos they might end up fighting over it (cos it's delicious)! :D
