Viewing Menara KL & Petronas Twin Towers

If you've scaled enough "tallest towers" in the world, you might have come to the realization that you don't actually get much of a different view while being on the tower itself. And on really tall ones with bad weather, you literally see nothing, save for fog and clouds.

Another thing - if you're keen to view the Petronas Twin Towers (and Menara KL) in Kuala Lumpur, one thing you might realize when being on ground zero at the Malaysian city... they have not much sense of urban planning, and it is really difficult to get a good angle.

There are currently two places that you can have a relatively unblocked view: Grand Hyatt KL and EQ Kuala Lumpur. These are hotels with bars, restaurants and rooms dedicated to serve you the best view, so depending on how you want your experience to be, splurge away~

THIRTY8 at Grand Hyatt KL is located strategically on the 38th floor with ceiling to floor glass windows that provide 360-degree city view including a dining area, bar and lounge. They also have a set lunch menu at MYR 80 nett for 2-course meal and MYR 95 nett for 3-course meal. Menu:

When I saw the barley & corn risotto, I knew I have to get it; risotto is one of my favourite choices on the menu. Barley risotto made it even chewier and delicious, with light fragrant wafts of butter in every mouthful. Although it was rather buttery it wasn't overly creamy nor rich, in a good way.

Sweet and sour chicken, onion, pineapple was delicious and a tad too sweet but I'm sure there is a cheaper & even tastier variant in the streets of KL. It comes with steamed rice.

The pan-seared sea bream fish was average but I really liked the cream court bouillon that accompanied it well.

Pahang chocolate mousse, crushed mango compote - looks really good on camera, but the taste was rather predictable. The chocolate reminds me a little of hazelnut chocolate a-la Ferero Rocher, and the fruits balance out the thickness of the chocolate.
