Graze_1

Returning to Graze, Hilton KL’s new substitute for Senses. Earlier entry on Graze: May 7. 

Cheese

Mimolette might be currently banned in America because of the mites that help make this French cheese fabulous, but Graze’s customers can savor it here, turned into a beautiful souffle with raisins and pine nuts (RM28++).Graze_2

Goat’s cheese beignets with sweet millet (RM25++), expertly executed. Graze_3

A French Classic

Pissaladiere with caramelized onions, olives and anchovies (RM28++), delectably sweet-savory.Graze_4

Risotto

Risotto with saffron, mascarpone and shaved parmesan (RM33++). We shouldn’t nitpick about a recipe as beloved as Risotto alla Milanese, but a few bites of this do go a long way. Somewhat one-dimensional in both taste and texture.Graze_5

Pasta

Tortellini of potato and fontina cheese with sauteed escargots and baby spinach (RM33++). Wonderful combination of Italian and French components.Graze_6

Tarts

Tarts, baked fresh for each meal period and available on a first-come, first-served basis, are the major highlight for dessert. Can’t fault the warm tarte tatin, accompanied by vanilla ice cream (RM18++).Graze_7

Graze’s signature chocolate tart should also leave some enjoying each forkful in hushed silence. Graze_8

Complementary Liquor

Complimentary limoncello and grappa, much appreciated.Graze_9

With only one miss (the risotto, based on personal preference, since others might love it) out of seven otherwise-spectacular dishes, Graze has set the bar high. As far as KL’s hotel restaurants go, Graze is great. Graze_10 Graze_11Graze_12
