T@ste6, Swiss-Garden Hotel & Residences Kuala Lumpur: A Brand New Dining Experience!

Late last month, I had the honors of attending the launching of the new T@ste6 at Swiss-Garden Hotel & Residences Kuala Lumpur! Located at Level 6 of the new Swiss-Garden Residences, the classy restaurant was as gorgeous as my first sneak preview of the place.

Upon arriving, we were quickly handed SKYY Lychee Martinis and Canapes while we check out the lovely city’s view surrounding the restaurant. The whole ambience was so vogue with its stylish glass, metal and wooden d├ęcor with splashes of red!

I love the open kitchen concept as it keeps me busy while I wait for my food! There is a decent range of wines available encased in glass to separate the private dining room with the main restaurant.

The launch was officiated with a speech from Swiss-Garden International Group General Manager, Mr. Rayan Komatt.


There was also a dance performance to get the crowd going…

So what kind of food do T@ste6 offers?

The restaurant offered buffet dishes that night and I was surprised by their offerings. Buffet has a side effect where food tends to taste mediocre when cooked in batches and resting in warmers. However, the buffet that night was simply amazing. Obviously quality was a high focus and every dish had great flavors, textures and nuances!

Simple Caesar Salad and Pumpkin with Parmesan Cheese Soup was a great light starters in my books. One can savor great ingredients in its simplicity!

Notable favorites of mine that night was the Roasted Beef CubeRoll, Seabass with Chive Sauce, Salmon with Bisque Sauce and Stewed Lamb with Potatoes. Both meats were so tender and filled with beautiful flavors while the fish was executed with perfection! Even the side dishes were well seasoned and not mushy despite sitting in the warmers.

Desserts were limited but I just adored the Mini Lemon Tarts as it was just so refreshing.

The restaurant showed a series of French inspired desserts such Chilled Chocolate Mousse, Mille Fueille with Pastry Cream and Bread and Butter Pudding.  We ended our dining experience with fresh fruits and more cocktails of course!!

Temptations from my plates that night… J

Chef Amir and his culinary team definitely put in great efforts that night. The buffet was prepared with great thoughts and effort and these showed in the dishes we sampled that night.

T@ste6 has started off with a winning combination of stylish interiors and great food. Menu offers gorgeous soups, salads, pizzas, pies, pastas and rissottos with snacks from cuisines worldwide. Mains like British Fish & Chips to Moroccan Lamb Rack to American burgers and sandwiches are featured while desserts features Italian Frangelico Tiramisu, Calvados Affrogato and more.

Definitely a culinary destination to look out for…
