Recently, Mei Sze and I headed over to Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur to try out their Business Executive Lunch at Gobo Upstairs Lounge and Grill. The set is aimed at busy professionals who have an hour for lunch before heading back to the office or to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre which is right next door to the hotel.

The set comes with unlimited starter, your choice of main, and unlimited desserts.

My very “rojak” looking plate of starters. There were so many roasted vegetables to choose from, as well as cold cuts and smoked salmon. A very nice spread indeed! They were so good that I helped myself to another two (2) plates before my main arrived.

 

While I was helping myself to the starters I noticed the chef preparing our main courses

After you’d had your fill of starters you will then be served your main. You have a choice of five (5) mains:

Mei Sze opted for the Pan-Seared Seabass Papilot which was served with Mediterranean vegetables and mesclun salad.

I opted for the Filet Mignon which was served with truffle risotto, buttered vegetables, and bordelaise sauce.

Oh my! This was absolutely delicious! The beautifully cooked tender beef, and the fragrant risotto were an awesome combination. The asparagus and vegetables added some extra variation of flavours but the star of the dish was definitely the beef which was so good it almost didn’t need the accompanying bordelaise sauce but being a person who likes sauces I finished the sauce anyway. It was so good that I could certainly eat two or three plates of this dish!

 

There are also another three (3) options for you to choose from:

Braised Lamb with mashed potato, mesclun salad, mint jelly and lamb jus

Braised Short Ribs with pomme puree, asparagus, baby French beans, and bordelaise sauce

Chicken Cou Au Vin with mashed potato, shallots, carrots and celery

 

Then help yourself to the desserts after that, unlimited as well!

Some delicious little cakes. Don't be greedy or you might find yourself nodding off in the office after the sugar rush subsides.

Fresh fruits are a healthy option. You could even start off your meal with these to aid digestion.

These were very delicious but I limited myself to just two as I didn't want a sugar rush and the energy drop that comes after that

We noticed this interesting wallpaper and couldn’t help but to snap some pics with it.

 

We passed by the lounge area which houses the bar and some plush sofas on the way out
