Editor’s Note – March 2019 Featuring Executive Set Lunch at Cedar on 15, Impiana KLCC Hotel & Launch of Marigin Gin Bar, One KL

[Editor’s Note]

Executive Set Lunch at Cedar on 15, Impiana KLCC Hotel


We recently headed over to Cedar on 15 at Impiana KLCC Hotel Kuala Lumpur to try their new executive set lunch which is available from Mondays to Fridays from 12.00pm – 2.00pm, priced at RM88.00 nett per person, inclusive of free flow of wine or soft drinks.

The lunch featured some dishes from the newly launched Midday Specials menu (read more about it here – https://timchew.net/2019/01/10/cedar-on-15-at-impiana-klcc-hotel-launches-3-new-menus-midday-specials-social-bites-and-the-cookbook/) which features traditional favourites and new creations by Chef Helmut Lamberger, Corporate Chef (WACS Global Master Chef) at Impiana KLCC Hotel.

The Midday Specials are a selection of refreshing salads, hearty soups, main courses and desserts that were specially created for lunch and thus are not too heavy as to induce a food coma which would almost certainly guarantee an unproductive afternoon.



REFRESH – Fresh Cameron Highland Lettuce

with airdried beef shavings/ compressed watermelon/ grapefruit filet/ touille/ mustard vinaigrette

A very refreshing, colourful and light salad made with local produce. While a colourful salad does make it very Insta-friendly, colourful vegetables also provide a whole range of nutrients important to our bodies including some which contain anti-cancer properties! So be good and eat your veges if you want to be healthy.



MEDITERRANEAN – Grilled Meat Gyros

Beef, chicken & lamb skewered with capsicum and mushroom/ tzatziki sauce/ garden greens

A variety of meats beautifully cooked and presented on skewers in a Greek inspired dish. The tzatziki kept things fresh, light and appetising, balancing out the meats wonderfully.



SYMPHONY – Sticky Date Pudding

With butterscotch sauce

A sweet and somewhat decadent end to the meal, especially the butterscotch sauce which is really rich!


The executive set lunch at Cedar on 15 is a good business lunch option in the vicinity of KLCC and walking distance via the air-conditioned bridge from the KL Convention Centre as well as Pavilion KL.

Grand Launch of MariGin Gin Bar at One KL

Vivian and I recently headed over to One KL which is right next door to KLCC in Kuala Lumpur for the launch of MariGin Gin Bar which is the latest addition to The Marini’s Group (their other outlets include Marini’s on 57, Marble 8 and M Marini Grand Caffè & Terrazza).

MariGin is a traditional gin parlour with a twist, offering concoctions which capture the cosmopolitan spirit of gin with a local touch.

“Gin is usually a staple in any bar but at MariGin, it is the star. It is a versatile and refreshing spirit that can be drunk straight up, in a simple mix, or added to other flavours in a cocktail,” said Cavaliere Modesto Marini, owner and founder of The Marini’s Group, at the bar’s opening party this evening.

“Its diversity and number of varieties ensures that it appeals to the different palates as well as provides new experiences, and that is what MariGin aims to provide – a gin drink for every occasion,” he added.

The dedicated gin menu features 57 varieties of gin, and their drinks menu includes gin infusions, gin and tonic mixes, as well as bespoke cocktails, priced from RM27++ onwards.



The bar’s interior has low sofas and coffee tables on a dark marble floor, with pool and gin pong tables at the outside terrace adding to MariGin’s relaxed atmosphere. The bar can comfortably accommodate 56 persons indoors, while the terrace seats 35 persons. Those looking for a little privacy can opt for any of the two private rooms, which seat six to eight persons.



MariGin Gin Bar is located at One KL, Jalan Pinang, 50450 Kuala Lumpur.

It is open from 5.00pm to 1.00am from Monday to Saturday, where happy hours run from 5.00pm to 9.00pm.

To make a reservation, call +603 2386 6030 or email reservations@marinisgroup.com


Thanks for having us
