Kitchen Creatures at Centrepoint, Bandar Utama: Restaurant ReviewSean Yoong
April 4, 2015
Enduring more than five years now in Bandar Utama, Kitchen Creatures has proven to be one of Centrepoint’s most dependable destinations for a satisfactory meal at prices that encouragingly still seem more hitched to 2010 than 2015.
Kitchen Creatures’ menu is impressive in scope, with several interesting temptations in each section; for salads, the highlight may be this perky mix of crisp spinach leaves, cilantro, watercress, orange segments, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes & cucumber, tossed with pistachios & a light ginger honey dressing. RM10.90; this hearty serving works for a wholesome lunch.
Meat matters: Beef is a cornerstone of the kitchen, with everything from this Cowboy Steak with a 200-gram, flame-grilled Australian rib-eye with grilled beef bacon, house-made mashed potatoes, sauteed onions & fried egg (RM31.80 for a princely portion of protein) to beef burgers, beef wraps, beef rendang penne & beef pepperoni pizzas.
Aussie Lamb Shank
Kitchen Creatures’ menu has evolved over time – one of its newer temptations is this tender Aussie lamb shank in a reinterpreted Rogan Josh recipe, slow-braised in yoghurt tomato masala, rich but not too fiery, served with steamed carrot butter rice & onion mint raisin raita. RM32.90.
Plenty of pasta; our pick’s this one with scallops on the half shell, blue mussels, calamari & prawns sauteed in almond pesto sauce. The pasta could be a bit firmer, but this is still fair value for RM24.80, surprisingly substantial enough for a filling dinner.
For some KC loyalists, their favourites comprise the pizzas, which include more than a few vegetarian options. Try the feta cheese & spinach option, full of flavour with carbonara sauce on a relatively thick but nonetheless crunchy base. RM17.80.
Kitchen Creatures is also known for signature beverages with a twist, like its blend of A&W Root Beer with fine-cut ginger & ginger ale (RM5.80), a Limey George with Sprite, lemon & blackcurrant syrup (RM7.80) & Ginger Jinjer featuring lemongrass-infused rose syrup, soda & chopped ginger flower (RM7.80).
