Review: The Rabbit Hole at Changkat Bukit Bintang
The Rabbit Hole recently hopped into the site that formerly housed two excellent restaurants, Le Bouchon & El Rincon. It’s off to a promising start so far, aiming to bring back the thrill to Changkat Bukit Bintang.
We really like The Rabbit Hole’s leafy, alfresco “Bamboo Forest” dining section; it’s distinctive & adds an air of seclusion that’s not always attainable on this bustling street. Potentially pretty romantic too, on the right kind of night.
The Rabbit Hole’s street level also holds a distinguished-looking gentleman’s club, as well as a graffiti bar & “Green Room” club. Plans are afoot for a rooftop pool bar to be launched eventually too.
The menu here is extensive, with plenty of fun choices.
Salted Egg Yolk Buffalo Wings
The salted egg yolk buffalo wings (RM23 before taxes) could turn into a deep-fried addiction, genuinely flavoursome & well-prepared, served with a spicy chilli aioli. Very respectable East-West recipe.
Iberico Spanish Black Pig ‘Presa’ Shoulder Steak
We also enjoyed the Iberico Spanish black pig ‘presa’ shoulder steak (RM58), medium done with a hint of truffle oil, partnered with mashed potatoes, veggies, bacon & wild mushrooms. A wonderfully succulent, wholly satisfying alternative to beef steaks.
An interesting bet for dessert: the playfully concocted Faberge Egg plate, basically grapes coated in cheese & toasted almonds, paired with minted fruit tartlets (RM31). It’s inventive, spinning its own take on a fruit-&-cheese platter.
Have wine will dine; customers can also enjoy respectable renditions of Tommy’s Margarita (tequila, agave nectar, lime juice) & The Last Word (gin, green chartreuse, maraschino liquor, fresh lime juice).
