the Apartment Downtown | KLCC

The Apartment Downtown, whether you have heard of it for numerous times or dined at this restaurant before, it's time for you to go back and try out their new menu! The Apartment Downtown unveiled exciting new look, menu and cocktail and champagne bar. Featuring a European styled dining concept, infused with Asian flavors into a contemporary menu, the restaurant is a place where the formal and casual coexist.

Creating a restaurant “where dining out means coming home”, The Apartment Downtown is completely renovated to showcase the large open space, vast amount of natural light and a sense of height and depth, providing an ideal setting for any crowd size. At night, diners could sit back and relax over a glass of bubbly with a scenic lake view. 

We kick start our lovely dinner with the Polenta, Tomato and Basil Salad (RM25.90). It is just a simple mixture of roma, cherry and sun dried tomatoes, cucumber, basil, capers, anchovies and buffalo mozzarella tossed with shallot vinaigrette, topped with crispy polenta.

What was served next was this lovely Chicken Liver Pate (RM22.90). This allows you to enjoy the homemade chicken liver pate with port jelly served with cornichons, fresh arugula and rye toast. This is yummy and I can eat this anytime! I wish I could have that jar of chicken liver pate at home now!

And here's the Fried Herb & Potato Dumplings (RM16.90). The crispy fried herb and potato served with grilled banana ketchup. This is nice and crispy, but wasn't my favorite; the tomato ketchup that comes with it has a hint of banana taste, interesting. 

Awesome stuffs for scallop lovers! Silky Scallops & Tofu (RM39.90) where the scallops and roe baked with tofu, topped with soy-wasabi butter. This is certainly perfect for quick bites and they are yums! If you wish to have something heavier, you can always opt for the Salt & Pepper Scallops Linguine (RM45.90). The linguine served with prawns, crispy beef bacon, sautéed broccoli and red capsicum with chili flakes.

Moving to more of the mains, we also ordered this huge Moroccan Beef Burger (RM36.90). For the price, I thought it's pretty affordable! You'll get to enjoy the thick and juicy Moroccan spiced patty on toasted brioche bun stacked with tomato relish, beef bacon, arugula, tomato, Portobello mushroom with a drizzle of mayonnaise. It also served with sweet potato fries topped with the house crème fraiche!

What's new? The Greek Mac and Cheese (RM30.90), macaroni in a creamy cheese sauce with fresh dill, feta cheese, and Greek spice blend topped with breadcrumbs and fried spinach. 

This could be everyone's favorite for the night - Greek Style Lamb Cutlets (RM70.90)! The New Zealand lamb cutlets served along with Greek yogurt, crumbed eggplant and roasted cherry tomatoes. The lamb was done in perfect medium rare, just the way we love it! 

For dessert, we ordered the sinfully delicious Baked Chocolate Pudding (RM18.90). This is my all time favorite desserts at the Apartment Downtown, KLCC! The chocolate pudding with a chocolate-coffee ganache topped with hazelnut served with vanilla ice cream. The preparation time for this particular dessert is 15-20minute, but it's totally worth the wait!

As a new feature, the champagne bar features a range of bubblies from Henkell (German) to Deutz (French). The boutique selections are harvested from biodynamic viticulture. For those who prefer cocktails, The Apartment Downtown will be serving its own home mixes such as Tokyo Snow, ‘New Orleans’ French 75, Pedro’s Revolver and Herbal Gin & Tonic. The difficulty will be in deciding which to order.
