Eating in Kuala Lumpur - Senses at Hilton KL
I ordered Cheong Liew's signature dish - Four Dances of the Sea as the appetizer. For soup I had the capuccino of mushroom with truffle oil. Main course was the black cod with miso glaze.
The soup was not so memorable. When the Four Dances of the Sea arrived, I was frankly a bit disappointed. The presentation was not what I had expected. The taste - however, was great. Each of the four small bites presented a different taste of the sea.
The main course presentation was also a bit ordinary. The black cod - topped with slices of squid, was set on a bed of wilted greens. The cod was done to perfection. Sweet and melt in the mouth. The nuttiness and slight bitterness of the greens complimented the sweetness of the fish really well. Don't know what the squid was doing there, but I guess they help to spike up the interest of the dish a little bit.
Senses was not the sensational experience that I expected - but the food was still good, until you get the bill. This is definitely not the cheapest place in KL.
