The place is quite cozy and inviting with brick walls and simple decor.
The overall meal was good and of good quality. Let me share the breakdown of our meal:
Soup of the day tomato soup rm15
Potato salad rm12
Rib eye rm58
Apple juice rm9.50
Honeydew juice rm9.50
Total bill came out to rm 119.60 which included service charge and gov't tax.
Meatworks is located right in front of Cold Storage Solaris
Ps. Because we were so hungry I didn't get the chance to take photos of the food. I only realized half-way through, he he!
With 2 dishes plus 2 drinks, our bill came up to rm 85. Quite reasonable for such a place. Overall it's a satisfied rating for our Balinese evening.

This gastronomic experience will cost you ... RM 808 (around us$227)! Definitely the most expensive dinner we have paid since we arrived in KL :) But it was truly memorable! Highly recommended for people who are out to celebrate a special occasion.
Lafite is located at the lobby of Shangri-la Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
Tonight we dined in the most expensive restaurant in Kuala Lumpur -- from our perspective. So far since our arrival in Malaysia we have never paid this much for a dinner for 2! Anyway will share the bill later in part 2.
The food was superb and the experience we've had at Shangri-la's French Restaurant called Lafite was most appropriate for our celebration. We both took the Explorer menu which was a 6 course meal. Superb! Plus they even made a special candlelight set-up for us. I did mention to them that we are celebrating something that evening and that I'm pregnant when I called for reservations. The meal included my ultimate favorite foie gras (really heavenly!), we had some soup, some fancy looking starters, lobster with tomatoes, and a small cup of sorbet to clean the palette. More updates and photos in the next entry. Had to cut into 2 entries bec I'm sending this update from my phone to my Blogger site which cross-posts to Facebook. Find out in the next entry how much this whole experience cost us :)

The food was okay, lots of wine and cheese. And the cakes were so nicely decorated. Never realized how huge the French population was here in KL! Met some new people and some old friends. July 14 is considered as the National day of France or what they call Bastille day.

We ordered salad for starters and it came with bread and a small sample of tapenade. Then we took the duck Cassoulet which I totally miss, especially after tasting a superb one last year during my stay in South of France. We devoured the dish in minutes. It's probably the only place in Malaysia that has that! We finished off with a lemon Tartlet. I was also able to buy a bottle of the French Monin syrup in apple flavor, which we love! We usually mix it with cold water or sparkling water for a refreshing drink. Total bill came out to rm 214.45 Let me share the breakdown of our bill.

Once again I'm craving for some authentic Japanese cuisine and thought of checking out Sugimoto. A Japanese friend of mine mentioned it long ago and so I decided to research online about people's reviews. The place was busy with people, and the ambience was simple Japanese style. If not for the blog reviews pointing us to its location I don't think we would have given it a second look bec it's at the 2nd floor. One has to go up via elevator or stairs. It's near the Jarrod & Rawlins restaurant.
We ordered the Kamameshi set, chicken teppanyaki, and saba fish. Overall it was tasty and the service was good. We will definitely go back to try other dishes.
We paid rm 86 in total. Not bad for an authentic Japanese dinner with great service. The other blogs I've seen mentioned that they have quite affordable lunch menus.
Sugimoto is located at 36-1 & 38-1 Jalan 27/70A Desa Sri Hartamas , Kuala Lumpur.
Tel # 03-23001102
To find it, look for the Jarrod and Rawlins restaurant which is located at the ground floor. Beside it is a narrow passage-way which leads you to a staircase/elevator which will bring you up to the next floor... which is Sugimoto!
We decided it's better to stay home than mingle in the high-traffic malls where the virus may be present. So we took our time and made our own pizza. The bread dough was purchased from Carrefour last week' where they have stock of pizza dough from France. Then we topped it with 3 kinds of cheese, some basil and olives, plus beef sausages sauteed with onions, pizza tomato sauce and a bit of olive oil. It was yummy! Definitely tastier than pizza delivery. Plus, hubby made sure that he made it thin crust just like how Italians do it. Shame we don't have a wood oven else it would be perfect! Anyway pizza and some ice cold coke made my late lunch an interesting one.
