Qba Latin Grill & Bar @ Westin Kuala Lumpur

Okay, as per my one of my previous post, where I am hugely disappointed on the steak served, I decided, I should try another steak house during my short stay in Kuala Lumpur! My choice? Qba Latin Bar & Grill @ Westin.

It’s Monday, and being a weekday, the restaurant located underground of Westin Kuala Lumpur is sorta empty.

Being served first is the bread, but no way the standard is near to Prime @ Le’ Meridien Kuala Lumpur. The bread is to go with olive oil, which is quite bland in terms of taste, hence just a bite of it, I gave up (just like in almost all other places that served free bread before my food).

Maybe that’s just because I hate most bread unless it was reallllly delicious, but well…

The waiter is a friendly one, and for appetizer, we get the Hokkaido Scallops and Western King Prawns with Romesco Sauce @ RM38. Well, I must say the Romesco Sauce is actually very unique and I like it very much. However, something I can’t accept is, for such a restaurant, the prawns served ain’t fresh at all! The prawns is soggy and does not have the sweet seafood taste that it should have. The scallop itself was okay though. 6.0/10 (the score will be much much higher if the prawns are fresh)

Prime @ Le’ Meridien Kuala Lumpur

Okay, I am actually very reluctant to post this, especially after the sorta good service from Prime, making me really wanted to give them a 2nd chance before I post this, but seeing that it seems there are more and more negative review I read (from Lowyat forum and here and even 1 of the commentors from kampungboycitygal’s blog regarding his friend), well…..

I know I might get a lot of hatred mail or even shrugs or disbelieve, well….

Okay, to start it off, it’s LY birthday, I decided to bring her to Prime, the highly sung best place to have steak in Malaysia. I am especially excited when I saw that their Blackmore Wagyu promotion is back, hence I can finally taste the melt in mouth kind of steak for the first time!

Red meat must go with red wine, and since I am not a Wine expert at all, I asked the waiter to recommend me a wine which is not dry and sweet, hence I was recommended the Terrazas Mabec @ RM190, which is exactly what I want. Kudos to them!

After we made our order, the bread is here. Yes, it’s definitely the best ever bread I had tasted in restaurant. I especially love the Emmental Cheese & Black Pepper Bread which is just amazing to go on with the 3 types of butter which is 1 infused with spinach,  1 is salted and the other is with poppyseed (from left to right). The bread itself is already amazing and great on it’s own, and with the super creamy and soft and generous butter, it’s just AMAZING! Seriously a perfect score for a bread! 10.0/10
