IF you are in KL City Center and looking for Korean food, then you can turn to HanSang at Pavilion Elite. One of the restaurant can decently satisfy your Korean palate if needed.

HanSang (1)

You can pick variety choices from your bimbap, to bbq or fried chicken series.

HanSang (2)Their Korean pancake is edible, not he best as it is soggy version.

HanSang (3)

HanSang (4)One of the save bet is bimbap You will never go wrong with that.

HanSang (7)Cheese lovers might want to consider this as, the fried rice is good and coated with cheese is best to share this portion

HanSang (8)

Mandu is quite direct too.

 

HanSang (28)

 

We had Korean bbq too. Choices of meat is pretty spot on.

HanSang (10)

Another I would say a save bet is also their Army Stew. Soup seems clear but the powder mixture that they use to make the soup punch with flavour is their secret. How not to miss to top up with their ramyeon.

HanSang (20)

HanSang (11)

HanSang (12)

Variety of banchan is provided and the sesaoned egg is good.

HanSang (5)

I would say that their bibinbap is pretty good. A variety mixture of veggie and hint of gojuchang sauce and stir fry in the hot bowl is quite okay. I felt that it is more like a heathier version.

you can order cheese bowl at the side to side to make your bbq more interesting.

HanSang (25)

Not the best Korean food you can find round the area, but given the fact its the no choice punya choice, then kinda okay. You do not need to drive to those famous Korean food area like Ampang or Mont Kiara. I felt that for City center, this is kinda decent Korean food in KL that you can opt in for.

There have been tons of hype for this Natalina Italian Kitchen in Avenue K, KL. Many have regard as one of the best Italian restaurant in KL. Visited this place early this year along with the hype and trying out a few dishes.

I was told that this restaurant is run by a classic Italian and that is why they are so well known here. It is also recommended by a few of my Italian counterparts as they rated as one of the food that very close to their home.

Seating space here is not huge and if it is full house, you might find it abit cramp.

avenue kWhat is famous here is certainly one of their pizza series as all pizza are made fresh upon orders.

DSC01251Each of the table got their own freshly made bread to go off with. starting off with their special house made pesto, tomato and olive base condiments. It is actually pretty good as all 3 have pretty distinctive flavours.

lasagneWhat attracted me in the menu are these few dishes. If there is a chance I would always try to order Lasagna, Not too sure if this is in the menu as the one I see in the website I could not find this dish anymore. This is one of a lasaga that is punch with flavours. Mince meat is cook to soft perfection and serve with melted cheese, with fried leaves that gives it a nice end crips texture. Best for sharing.

franks barI have always been a big fan of Pappardelle con Guancia di Manzo @ RM 72 – broad pasta strips with wagyu beef cheeks white ragu, topped with Roman Pecorino cheese.

Certainly one of my favourite as it is hard to find nice version of this. It have to be wide and light weight and cook to al dante. This is unique as the sauce is great and even better with Pecorino cheese. Gives you a nice strong bold flavours from both tomatoish and mild bitterness of the cheese. Goes really well with the white wine I have chosen.

NATALINA FOOD MENU

DSC01243Usually i would go for classics Margarita and seems why not with something elevate for the day. Just hitting on something simple Tarfuto @ RM 68 – Buffalo Mozzarella, scarmoza, mixed wild mushrooms and wild truffles. It is a simple pizza that does not goes wrong. If it is wrong, then they would not be one of the recommended Italian restaurant in KL.

Edge is burnt to perfection with crips on the side. Love the dough as it is thin crust and I believe it is sourdough?

wood fire pizaz

best tiramisu in pjThis is OhMyLord! . I would have to rate this as one of the best tiramisu I come across. It is very hard to come across such texture, taste to my liking. IT IS A MUST ORDER! Classic Traditional Tiramisu @ RM 45 (contains alcohol)

It is moist and the mascarpone cream is beat to perfection. Soft and fluffy yet the base is punch with espresso and the top is with strong cocoa powder with nice bitter end. Every little bits of chocolate give you a nice bite. It is a well balance of flavour. Sweet, nice bitter end and a mild hint of alcohol punch at the end. it is PERFECTO!

Natalina Italian Kitchen

Is it the best Italian restaurant in KL? This will be down to own individual preference. I find it quite decent and certainly will be back again to try their other items. Price wise is on the high side.

It is best for you to make reservations especially for dinner. Lunch you can still try your luck for walk in

Among many of my friends that have visited De Wan 1958 by Chef Wan at The Linc, KL indeed gave a good review and thumbs up for this place, till recently I get to try along for a private function. No doubt it is indeed serve pretty good Malay cuisine.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan

I was here on weekdays so was told the crowd is not huge and it is pretty full house over the weekend. It is highly advisable to make a reservation before you come. This is to avoid any private functions that they have too.

Curious about their menu and price (click here)

Best of all, they have private dining room available that can sit up to 10 pax.

As the food was serve, the smell of those spicies and curies instantly makes me hungry.

Cucur Udang is classic street food and it is done right. Dipping with both satay and chili sauce is just perfect.

de wan by chef wan

Starting off with a classic dish – Pucuk Paku that is cook to perfection. Not too soft yet I can still bite slight crunchy texture of the veggie and sqeezing a bit of limau indeed enhance the flavour.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan (5)

Udang Kari Hijau Telur Masin is indeed one of the highlight for the night. Prawn is fresh and big. Sauce is sticky with a bit of twist. Hint of chili skin after taste and the telur masin not overpowering yet goes very well with the whole flavour.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan (7)

you will never go wrong with dishes that is bakar. The only thing is the ingredient must be fresh. Jumbo Sotong Bakar with Sambal Colik is indeed spot on. Ia mixture like of Indonesia x local malay taste infuse for the sauces.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan (8)

We got serve with 2 types of rice and it is recommended.

  1. Nasi Lemuni Berseri Perlils
  2. Nasi Telur Terrenganu

de.wan

For curries they serve Daging Rendang Selangor. Spices are mix well and with the right amout, every one have their own version of curries recipe and I find it is qood.

Some will be stronger in spices, some is stronger in spicy but I like this. Both balance of spices and mild spicy, that can easily goes well with your rice.

the linc kl

Ayam Masak Merah Chef Wan  is abit more solid. Slightly strong in spicy end with mild sweetness. Chicken is soft and juicy.

de. wan

This is the first time I am having Umbut Kelapa Lemak Solok Lada. I find the taste is quite interesting. cook with a kind of noodle in it and I think those of you have never try before, I believe it is a dish worth to explore.

If you have the budget and looking for nice ambiance or atas great classic Malay food, then I believe you can check out Chef Wan restaurant in KL.

I check their FB, they do have Ramadan buffet for all Muslim friends that wishes to go. For their De.Wan Ramadan Buffet Menu (click here). Best to call them up or visit their website (click here)

It has been a while since I last dine in an upscale restaurant where MCO just took our 2 years away. I have seen alot influencers in this casual dining resturant in KL known as Blackbyrd KL in Naza Tower which is just a stone throw away from KLCC Petronas Twin Tower or in this area Platinum Park KL.

Blackbyrd KL

It was special treat for me on my special day, was just brought here to enjoy the view, ambiance, food and drinks. Just head all the way up to 55th Floor if I remember correctly.

restaurant sky bar in kl

We are here for early bird as it is still so called “endemic” reservations are divided into 2 sessions. 6-8pm / 8pm till late.

  1. if you choose early session and if you are lucky, you get to see sunset
  2. night just enjoy night view and drink all the way

cocktail bar in kl

Dining area are divided into 2, as I was seated in both dining and bar area. I would say you enjoy early dinner then you move to the cocktail bar after 8pm to continue your chilling at the counter or high spender table with the perfect view.

Blackbyrd KL menu 2022

I guess to our sheer luck as this would be their new menu of 2022 and was told that what we previously wanted to order is no longer available and it seems that they have new head chef on board.

after looking at the menu, Blackbyrd food seems more like fusion with towards Asian, Indonesian local inspired cuisine. Of course there are a few items that caught my attention.

Blackbyrd signature dish

This is Blackbyrd all time signature: Crispy Nori Crunch @ RM 29 – tempura nori seaweed, spicy salmon, salmon roe and parmeson cheese.

20220218_185313

Nicely presented that have colour to it, however I find that it lacks of flavours. Cripsy inside out with a bit of saltiness from fish roe and hint of parmesan.

DSC01095

DSC01113

Of course by name itself, I imagine it sounds simple that caught my attention. Truffle Tagliolini @ RM 59 – fresh truffle and truffle butter.

truffle spaghetti

Upon serving, the smell of truffle is already pretty strong. Topped with 4-5 thin slices of fresh  fresh truffle to make it look more solid. Taste is indeed spot on. Creamy to my liking with a punch of Pretty strong truffle taste. Felt that tagliolini is made fresh with cook to perfection. Slight chewy and al-dante – recommended

truffle

indonesian inspired food

After staring for a long while, nothing that caught my attention as I find the rest are quite normal. So I pick something familiar to me. Iga Bakar Sambal Idjo @ RM 145 – Black Angus Short Ribs MB 2, green chili, gurih Rice.

This is certainly one of a atas Indonesian or Balinese kind of food. Flavours are pretty spot on as I just find that the Sambal could be spicier like the one I had in both Jakarta and Bali. Black Angus ribs is marinated and cook well . Certainly do have the taste of atas Indonesian street food version.

bali food

risotto

Since I have heard Gordan Ramsey or some cooking show keep using saffron. Originally was suppose to go with King Prawn Saffron Risotto and it was not available. Changed to this Rendang Saffron Risotto (If i remember correctly  which is special of the day)

Risotto is spot on. I have not tasted Saffron before so do not know how to describe.  First time doing this Rendang and risotto apparently the taste seems to blends well.

cocktail in the sky

restaurant for birthday celebration

Was here for my Birthday celebration in Mid February 2022.

Blackbyrd night view

This is the night view of Blackbyrd Skybar KLCC view.

Overall, If we guess correct as since most of the dishes wanted to order on that day menu no longer available and assuming the chef just reported, with its cooking I am impress.

If you are in the mood for atas ambiance dining or for celebration with Asian inspired food flavour with KLCC view then can consider here as one of the options.
