NOOK Ala Carte Menu @ Aloft KL Sentral

Hello! Do you still remember my weekend escapade at Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral? It was a lovely stay there, all I did was just chilling around the rooftop pool and breaking my diet plans--- Just eat my heart out! 

More often than not, hotel restaurants are associated with buffets. NOOK, the hotel coffee house will have the buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner housed under one roof. But this time we went ala carte instead! 

By the way, I have blogged about my dinner at Nook and drinks at Mai Bar once.

The buffet spread is certainly amazing and full of international and local flavours.

The cozy seating and welcoming apple green tone at NOOK creates
a warm and comfortable ambiance that makes me feel homey.

Traffic light drinks that we coincidentally ordered! 

Glancing through the ala carte menu, I was surprised that the menu boasts an equally wide array of international and local delights that already sounded delicious from the description in the menu. Quickly we picked a few crowd's favourites and the service was friendly and fast there.

#1 Complimentary House Bread 

Each diner who opted for ala carte options would be welcomed with the freshly baked house bread with butter spread. The bread here was just normal, but nevertheless a good started before starting our gastronomical journey.

#2 Mushroom Creamy Soup

Creamy and soulfully hearty, the mushroom bisque exuded an interesting flavour and distinctive character on its own, especially when paired with herbed toast. I reckon this is one of the best simple mushroom soup I've tried. 

#3 The Aloft Club

Served with steak fries, the triple layered stack sandwiches were highly recommended for those who usually wake up hungry. Layered with thick grilled chicken breast, turkey brisket and avocado, it was definitely a hearty experience itself.  

#4 Aloft Watermelon Bowl

For the health-conscious, try the colorful platter of compressed watermelon, fried cheese and pumpkin drizzled with zesty lemon-thyme olive oil.  Surely you'd enjoy the refreshing taste in the palate.

#5 Aloft Cod Fish

#6 Asian Delight - Sang Har Yee Mee

For local flavours, you may go for Yee Mee with tiger prawns. The prawns were richly coated with the gravy, without overwhelming its naturally sweet oceanic flavour. The taste? Fresh, succulent and crunchy.

#7 Sarawak Laksa

Another noteworthy dish is NOOK signature Sarawak Laksa, which is also available on the buffet spread. Mildly zesty with lime, adding a dollop of spicy paste into the creamy broth should leave you a little hot under the collar and stuffed to the brain.

 #8 Seafood Spaghetti 

 #9 Dessert - Salted Caramel White Cheesecake

For dessert, I enjoyed the delicious salted caramel chilled mascarpone cheesecake with a melt-in-the-mouth crust. The top layer felt like a classic pudding that was silky and rich in texture. Best served cold for a nice end to the sumptuous meal. 

The perfect getaway to the city, Aloft KL Sentral is only 28 minutes away from the KL International Airport and connected to the main KL transportation hub such as the KLIA Express, KL Monorail, KL North – South Commuter and the Light Rail Transit.
