Nook & Mai Bar @ Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

Passing by KL Sentral, you'll be fascinated by this latest establishment in the city--- 
Aloft KL Sentral, a funky looking hotel by Starwood Group

#1 Aloft KL Sentral

The food and beverages outlets in this hotel feature an all-day international buffet dining, a rooftop bar with swimming pool as well as a 24-hour lobby pantry for light bites.

#2 NOOK: All-day Buffet & A La Carte Dining

First in the list was Nook, a casual restaurant which serves breakfast buffet as early as 6.30am and continues to satisfy your gastronomic needs for the rest of the day with its ever changing buffet menu as well as chef's signature a la carte dishes.

#3 NOOK's Futuristic & Funky Design

Located at the first floor, NOOK's interior design is very much admirable, credits to Poole Associates, the great men behind 7atenine and WIP. In NOOK, you can experience comfort, convenience and ease whether you're here for a business lunch or a casual dinner date.

#4 NOOK's Bright Interior

A cheerful place of lime green and white color theme, with loads of natural light from the glass windows.

 #5 NOOK: I'm Yours 

 #6 Smoked Salmon

 The buffet offerings range from salad and fresh seafood on ice to local offerings including a noodle station that serves my favourite Sarawak Laksa a la minute, customizable to your preference.

 #7 Assorted Cold Salad

  #8 Fresh Mussels and Prawns on Ice

  #9 Salad Corner

 #10 Grilled Chicken

 #11 Potato with Onion and Sage

  #12 Breaded Mozzarella with Tomato

 #13 Nasi Briyani

Moving on to the selection of local favourites, you can find the 
most sought-after Nasi Briyani which goes well with all the piping hot offerings. 

  #14 Red Devil Chicken

  #15 Tempe & Kacang Panjang Masak Kunyit

If you're a fan of spicy food, bet you can't resist the Lamb Masala and Fish Head Curry too.
As for myself, I skip those because there are lots of food coming my way!

#16 Chinese Dim Sum

NOOK never fails to tempt me with more Asian delights like some of these steaming hot dim sums!

#17 Noodle Station

Tailor your favourite bowl of Sarawak Laksa here by choosing your choice of toppings and noodles. Then leave the rest to the chef who will whip out a stomach-warming bowl of Laksa with strong aroma of fish and coconut milk. 

#18 Sarawak Laksa

If buffet sounds overloading for your stomach,
 feel free to order this Sarawak Laksa from the a la carte menu.

#19 Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken

What not to be missed is the Malaysian trademark fragrant rice cooked with coconut milk, and accompanied by an array of crunchy bites- Fried chicken, squid in sambal, egg, fried anchovies and nuts.

#20 American Beef Burger with Bacon 

NOOK's a la menu is not limited to local delights, but also features a few signature items from the West. The beef patty exudes a pleasant smoky chargrilled whiff while the bun is soft buttery and fluffy. 

Our meaty portion is beautifully done with oozing cheese, not too gristly for my liking.

 #21 Colorful Popcakes 

Of course there is always space left for the beautiful spread of eye-catching desserts! 

#22 Banana Almond Cream Tartlets

#23 Caramel Pudding with Blueberries and Strawberries

#24 The Sweetest Sin: Strawberry Tart

I love the way this strawberry compote is paired with light airy meringue. 
The delightful sweet tartness makes me reach for a second helping!

 #25 Fruity Pie

#26 Opera Slices

 #27 Chocolate Popcakes & Myriad of Fruits 

All of them look so good! I guess I have overloaded my stomach with desserts that evening. 
What an enjoyable dinner date :)

 #28 Mai Bar @ Aloft

To complete the dining experience at Aloft, one must grab some drinks from Mai Bar, a Hawaiian-inspired rooftop bar with a swimming pool, overlooking the beautiful night scenery of the city.

 #29 Keen on a night swim at the 14th floor? :) 

 #30 Tiki Carvings at the Poolside Bar

  #31 Private Room for Drinks and Gatherings

  #32 What A Picturesque Scene of KL Skyline!

  #33 Mai Bar's Signature "Out of The World" Cocktail

The signature cocktail, "Mai Tai" is served in a huge grinning Tiki totem mugs. It is a nicely chilled, sweet concoction of pineapple juice and rum. Great for those with low alcohol tolerance.

 #34 Mai Bar: The Rooftop Poolside Bar 

#35 Aloft: A 482-room 4-Star Hotel

After going for a few pints, one may go tipsy and Aloft welcomes you with great room rates 
so that you can stayover for the night!

#37 Room Type: "Loft King"

Before you drift off, you'll want to sink into your cozy king-sized bed and pillow.

The spacious room is well-equipped with cotton towels, bath robes and the finest toiletries

Safety box, iron board, coffee maker and magazines are the basic essentials for a pleasant stay.
