Food Review – Business Executive Lunch at Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill, Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur
[Food & Beverage]
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.
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!
We noticed this interesting wallpaper and couldn’t help but to snap some pics with it.
