Gobos Upstairs @ Traders Hotel KL

Now if you have read below...the event was my gf birthday...and it is pictureless...So lets get right to it...its a beautiful place...with a very modern setting...there are several open kitchens with see through glass that will allow you to see if the chefs might have add abit of unwanted flavour on your food hehe...

So looking at the menu...there have a reasonable selection..not the biggest menu you will see..but enough to get your tummy growling on what you want to eat...there have a variety of sauces for their steaks and talking about steaks theres a variety of cuts as well...but prices start from around RM 60-100...and it hasnt been a good month for me...so i choose somethin lighter...

So starters...we had a vension carpaccio and a salmon 'cerviche'...awesome two appetizers there were...the carpaccio was really thinly sliced..and esp for people who doesnt like eating raw food...it didnt taste raw...it was sweet...accompanied with pumpkin mash and truffle oil..awesome piece of art...the salmon..it was abit of a tartare..meaning raw mash of salmon hehe...as we had a pretty big piece of free bread...we ate the bread with it...for those who dont like fishy things...its a no no..but i loved it all the same...

So mains...i had a vegetarian mushroom rissotto and my gf had the ribs...The rissotto was abit raw.. i would have prefered my rice to be abit more cooked...more mushrooms would be good as well..but the concept of putting fresh rocket leaves in my rissotto that was pretty new..but i think i still prefer the one @ Pregos in Westin...but after all its only RM 19 vs RM 30pls..so lets not compare...The ribs were done in a diff class and style then the ones we had @ Riblee's..Supposedly cooked for 8 hrs in alcohol made it tender...and the sauce had a big hint of red wine...very tender..very tender is all i can say...for only RM 32..

Came to the dessert...although its not on the menu..the chef does a dessert sampler for RM 24..they say it depends on her mood...whether she wants to give you cake...or shit..i suppose its up to her...so on that nite we had a sample of 4 diff things...an almond mousse...strong flavour of almond..abit like the HK dimsum almond beancurd actually...a lemon cheesecake..abit dry to my taste buds..gf loved it...a chocolate pecan pie topped with mango sauce...sounds odd..but man those two were made for each other....lastly chocolate mousse topped with kiwi and coconut sprinklings...served in a huge platter...the middle had a serve of fruits cut up in sticks...just wondering...looking at the size of each dessert...my gf was just wondering if it was nicked from a high tea buffet hehe...oh well its still good nevertheless...

So what was the dmg dealt? For starters a bottle of stilled water costs us RM 19 so i guess we should have ordered something more special for that money...that was a downside i guess for people who wants to cut cost and ending up paying more hehe...so for RM 80 plus per person..you get a great atmosphere..awesome settings and service...and good food...this is worth the 8.5 or 9/10..what do you think?..well maybe the next time i drop by for their famous steaks...i might have the courage to take a picture or two...

you know i am quite sick of putting a disclaimer...so sue me if you want hehe..
