Pampas Reserve @ Suasana Bukit Ceylon

KL's latest steakhouse, Pampas Reserve at Bukit Ceylon's Suasana residences, is the spin-off of long-enduring restaurant Pampas at Changkat Bukit Bintang.

This new venue is more upmarket, showcasing a serene, sophisticated interior & an alfresco area surrounded by fine foliage. It's a lovely setting, one of our current favorites.

The menu's meaty, mainly beefy: Begin with beef carpaccio, beautifully plated, topped with a satisfactory salad, house-made balsamic dressing & Parmesan cheese. RM28 before taxes.

Move on after that to a steak: Maybe 300 grams of the CAAB Black Angus sirloin (RM88).

Requested rare, executed with expertise. Not mind-blowing, but still mouthwatering.

Pampas whips up a well-conceived beef burger, boasting a quarter-pound patty that comes out chunky-juicy, topped with egg, beef bacon, onions, cheese & tomato relish.

No lack of wine or other specifications of liquor; the Allesandro (Baileys, Kahlua & vodka blended with vanilla ice cream, RM30) is our kind of nightcap.
P.S. Sean's away Nov. 7-17 in a mystery location 8,765 kilometers from KL where Maxis charges an unconscionable RM48 for 20MB of data roaming. Daily blog entries have been scheduled in advance & will be automatically posted, but apologies as comments can only be replied far later.

  2. Nice name. I wonder if the beef actually comes from the Pampas. Ours here comes mostly from Oz or NZ. Going on a holiday, eh? Have a safe and delightful trip and a jolly good time.
