It's a carnivore's club at Elixir Kitchen, which promises plenty of pork & poultry, ham & sausages, beef, lamb & seafood, marinated in-house with a host of herbs & spices for a spike of flavour. Choose your protein from the restaurant's 'marketplace,' then have the kitchen grill, pan-fry or oven-bake your meat & fish, served fresh & hot to satiate the lust for flesh.
Start with a pork platter that encapsulates Elixir Kitchen's signature recipes: the thick-sliced belly strip (RM18.90) conveys a sweet-savoury succulence that'll have plenty of patrons licking their lips, while the hickory white wine chop (RM17.80) & Guinness-enhanced pork shoulder loin (RM17.80) have their merits too, with distinct seasonings that make an impression.
There's no lack of sausages to tempt us here, though the most luscious recommendation might be the ,Ed Nord bratwurst. Ham is also worthwhile, with black pepper (RM13.80) telegraphing a nice zing & apple roast (RM13.90) bearing a subtle uplift.
Cajun-spiced chicken (RM12.90), rosemary Aussie lamb shoulder (RM17.90), NZ beef rib-eye (RM33.80), each executed with care & respect for the produce, measuring up to the restaurant's tagline of 'all about herbs & spices' - Elixir Kitchen was busy on a Wednesday night, a testament to how it manages to juggle the twin demands of satisfactory food & reasonable prices.
The choices prove comprehensive enough that the bounty of the ocean is represented too - tiger grouper (RM29.80) is foil-baked for maximum moistness, while squid (RM15.80) is fired up for a tasty charred chew. Even the side orders are well-thought-out & interesting; check out the purple coleslaw (RM6.90) & a lovely fruit salad brimming with dragonfruit, berries & more (RM9.80). Beer is available to complement the caveman-worthy meat; many thanks to Elixir Kitchen for having us here.
