In Colonial strives to rekindle a sense of old-world charm amid the modern bustle of The Intermark commercial tower; it's a soothing space, tucked in a hidden corner, with a friendly team that serves Malaysian-Chinese food with a few fun flourishes.
The best bets: Grilled squid soaked in savoury satay sauce (RM22 before taxes) ...
... prawns wrapped in sheets of bean curd, smothered in creamy butter sauce (RM48) ...
... & the "chicken in blankets" (RM18) _ chicken sausages coated in strips of chicken wing meat. The rest of the menu ranges from fresh oysters cooked with ginger in clay pots to fish steamed in lotus leaves & rib eye of beef with crispy mint leaves. Tempting, though budget-conscious customers might want to aim for In Colonial's lunch deals instead of its a la carte selection.
Have a gin & tonic or a glass of crisp Chardonnay; wine by the glass starts at RM22.
