Bar Of The Week: Gastro Sentral At Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur
Looking for a place where comfort meals take a gourmet twist with a selection of eye opening cocktails to choose from? We’ve got just the place for you.
Gastro Sentral at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur offers an informal venue for open-minded and well-travelled individuals who enjoy a modern classic pub with comfort food. Opened in November 2012, this new and trendy venue boasts quality, freshness and innovation with a relaxed but attentive service at a great price!
This beautifully designed restaurant reflect the modern classic interpretation of a timeless chic ambience. Striking and contrasting colours ooze a warm and welcoming setting. The show kitchen, where the culinary brigade entertains patrons with their cooking flair through a wide glass panel, makes for a thriving and lively ambience.
Oh boy, did we enjoy ourselves! With a selection of their latest cocktail menu called Sparkling, it was an unforgettable taste adventure!
We started off with a non-alcoholic cocktail, presenting the Awakening – a combination of hazelnut syrup, ginger ale and crushed ice. This is a great thirst quencher on a hot sunny day! It’s not too sweet and the flavours work great together, oh and it’s super addictive!
Next up! Introducing the LM-Beauty – a concoction of aloe vera syrup, Cointreau, blueberries and sparking wine. It took us a while to get used to the taste of this cocktail. I think the reason is because, we are so used to the sweet aftertaste of a sparkling wine that we genuinely expected that. The aftertaste of each sip was a tad too bitter for me but overall, it was easy on the palette and the alcohol content was just right.
The last and final cocktail, the Sparx – a concoction of cucumber juice, Monin orange liqueur, sparkling wine and red bull. Before you get put off from the cucumber juice, it was surprisingly good! Super refreshing, smooth and easy on the palette. The flavours compliment each other beautifully. Definitely a must-try!
Gastro also provides delicious alternatives like finger food and tapas for those who would like to have a light meal over drinks. And the best part about having a meal at Gastro is that everything on the menu is nett price! That’s right, nett price!
