KL's latest hotel, Element by Westin, boasts a flagship restaurant with a polished sheen & pleasing spaciousness, bolstered by a 40th-level view of the Twin Towers & their surroundings. The food builds on that positive first impression, from a playfully nuanced spiced butternut squash soup, made special with a trinity of blue swimmer crab meat, candied apple slices & Madras-inspired curry ice cream (RM22), to nasi lemak kelapa dara constructed of top-flight components, including fluffy, flavoursome rice steamed with extra virgin coconut oil, teamed with tiger prawn sambal, chicken roulade rendang & juicy Japanese cucumbers (RM38), to an intriguing dessert of carrot lava cake in lieu of the comparatively trite chocolate (RM26). Partner with a Tuscan red wine (RM30 by the glass) & well-mixed Sazerac cocktail (RM28) for a solid dinner. Service is unfailingly friendly.
