[Restaurants & Hotels]
Mikasa and I recently headed over to Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill, Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur to try their Three (3) course set lunch which is priced at RM59.00* per person for an appetiser, main, and dessert. There’s also the option of a Two (2) course set lunch priced at RM49.00* per person whereby you can choose to have your main with either appetiser or dessert.
Starter (Choice of)
Soup of the Day
A vegetable soup topped with some truffle oil. Not overly creamy or rich making this a nice and hearty start to the meal.
However if you’re looking for something more on the healthy side then this salad with a very light balsamic dressing would be a good option.
Main Course (choice of)
Parmesan Chicken pomme puree, buttered summer vegetables, lemon caper sauce
The chicken turned to be surprisingly tender and juicy, with the lemon caper sauce complementing it nicely.
Grilled Lamb Cutlets steak fries, buttered summer vegetables, artichoke coriander pesto sauce
Something more for a red meat eater like me! Remember to request for your doneness of the meat (please don’t order anything more than medium).
Oven Baked Salmon buttered summer vegetables, mustard sauce
A healthy option (which would go well with the salad if you’re the kind who really minds their diet) which paired a beautifully cooked piece of salmon with some vege and a mustard sauce.
Dessert (choice of)
Old Fashion Cheese Cake strawberry compote
I was quite impressed that there were actual pieces of strawberries atop the cheese cake! This was quite a good dessert even for someone like me who doesn’t really like desserts.
Black Forest chocolate gateau, toasted almonds, berry compote
Oh boy was this rich and creamy but it went well with the black coffee (not included in the set lunch) that we ordered.
The menu rotates often so do look out for other dishes as well as some new ones that Chef Mun (whom I previewed here recently – https://timchew.net/2017/07/25/preview-of-the-new-menu-at-gobo-upstairs-lounge-grill-traders-hotel-kuala-lumpur-2017/) will be introducing soon! The lunch here is pretty good value for money especially in a location near KLCC. A good non-bank busting place to bring your client for a working lunch.
