Pampas Reserve_1

KL’s latest steakhouse, Pampas Reserve at Bukit Ceylon’s Suasana residences, is the spin-off of long-enduring restaurant Pampas at Changkat Bukit Bintang. This new venue is more upmarket, showcasing a serene, sophisticated interior and an alfresco area surrounded by fine foliage. It’s a lovely setting, one of our current favorites.Pampas Reserve_2

Meaty Menu

The menu’s meaty, mainly beefy: Begin with beef carpaccio, beautifully plated, topped with a satisfactory salad, house-made balsamic dressing and Parmesan cheese. RM28 before taxes.Pampas Reserve_3

Steak

Move on after that to a steak: Maybe 300 grams of the CAAB Black Angus sirloin (RM88).Pampas Reserve_4

Requested rare, executed with expertise. Not mind-blowing, but still mouthwatering. Pampas Reserve_5

Burger

Pampas whips up a well-conceived beef burger, boasting a quarter-pound patty that comes out chunky-juicy, topped with egg, beef bacon, onions, cheese and tomato relish.Pampas Reserve_6

Alcohol

No lack of wine or other specifications of liquor; the Allesandro (Baileys, Kahlua and vodka blended with vanilla ice cream, RM30) is our kind of nightcap.Pampas Reserve_7

P.S. Sean’s away Nov. 7-17 in a mystery location 8,765 kilometers from KL where Maxis charges an unconscionable RM48 for 20MB of data roaming.
