Great Food – The Apartment Downtown @ Suria KLCC

The Apartment Downtown in Suria KLCC serves good and yet affordable food in a really cozy environment.

The Apartment's Cheese Platter
The Apartment’s Cheese Platter

If you are a cheese lover, you must not miss the Cheese Platter, great as appetizer. With a selection of cheeses served with frozen grapes, this dish is definitely a refreshing way to start your dining experience. The selection of cheeses include English mature cheddar (a strong flavored hard cheese), Gouda (slightly smoked semi-hard cheese), Danish blue (soft blue cheese) and Brie (soft ripened cheese). English mature cheddar is my favorite of them all as it has as strong flavored of cheese while I don’t quite like the Danish blue.

The Apartment's Chicken in a Bag
The Apartment’s Chicken in a Bag

Chicken in a Bag is a chicken dish which consists of chicken breast with leek, cannelloni bean, new potato, whole grain mustard and cream baked in a bag. The mustard sauce simply makes this dish delicious.

The Apartment's Seared Salmon Fillet
The Apartment’s Seared Salmon Fillet

Seared Salmon Fillet is seared salmon on crushed new potatoes and slow roasted tomatoes, together with pesto with a sun dried tomato and oregano sauce. It is quite good, the salmon is quite fresh while the sauce makes the dish quite aromatic and warm.

The Apartment's Banana Leaf Lemon Sole

Banana Leaf Lemon Sole is a fillet of lemon sole in a citrus-spiced coconut milk wrapped in banana leaf and baked in the oven. It comes with steam rice. Although it looks appetizing, I still prefer the salmon fillet over this. The coconut milk and the banana leaf actually make the fillet slightly soggy and lost its freshness.

The Apartment's Iced Cappuccino

When it comes to Iced Cappuccino, I prefer Delicious’ Iced Cappuccino anytime. The Apartment’s Iced Cappuccino lacks the real cappuccino flavor as it tastes almost like drain water. Okay, maybe not that bad.

The Apartment's Iced Chocolate

Iced Chocolate is pretty alright but when it comes to fancy places like The Apartment Downtown, one should never order gourmet coffee (and maybe chocolate) since Starbucks, Gloria Jeans, San Francisco Coffee and The Coffee Bean always have better coffees are just a few shops away. What the heck. Great food and very lovely and cozy ambiance though.

Duck & Mango Salad
Duck & Mango Salad

Duck & Mango Salad consists of fresh salad of shredded duck, mango, lemon grass, spring onion, ginger and lime leaves with Thai Nam Pla dressing. It is refreshing and at anytime, tastes like Thai’s green mango salad except that there are duck meats.

Portbello Mushroom
Portbello Mushroom

Portobello Mushroom as the name says is oven roasted portobello mushroom and garlic with a light drizzling of pesto. It is the perfect starter for mushroom lovers but not for everyone.

Baked Fish
Baked Fish

Baked Fish may sound ordinary but it is a really pleasant dish. The dish is made from baked dory fish topped with cherry tomatoes with gratin mozzarella and parmesan with sauteed new potatoes. The amount of cheese is so generous, it even covers up the entire fish!

Jamie's Duck Pasta
Jamie’s Duck Pasta

Jamie’s Duck Pasta is yet another duck dishes, but believe me, this is one of the best dish you can order in here. Jamie’s Duck Pasta consists of fettuccine with shredded slow-roasted duck and tomato red wine ragu, the pasta is topped with toasted pine nuts which make it so complete.

Andrew's Pasta
Andrew’s Pasta

If duck is not your favorite, don’t fret, you should perhaps try Andrew’s Pasta, another pasta dish. Andrew’s Pasta has sauteed new potatoes and asparagus tossed with linguine and pesto. It is slightly on the savory side, but nevertheless delicious.

Chicken with Peach & Walnut
Chicken with Peach & Walnut

Chicken with Peach & Walnut is roast chicken in peach and walnut sauce with mashed potatoes. It is rather surprising this dish tastes quite good.

Piquant Cream Grilled Chicken
Piquant Cream Grilled Chicken

Piquant Cream Grilled Chicken which is grilled chicken mixed with creme fraiche, mustard seed and green peppercorn with sauteed garlic spinach and dill mash is rather disappointing. Any of the grilled chicken from Secret Recipe can easily topple this dish.

Panacota, Italian Dessert
Panacota, Italian Dessert

We were rather surprise we were served with complimentary dessert which were the Panacota, an Italian Dessert with Blueberry. Not too sweet and not too sour. It’s just the perfect dish to end our pleasant and wonderful meal.
