The Best Steaks in KK @ Flames, Le Meridien

Just give me M-E-A-T!" 

So, some of us just crave a really good meal 
to reward ourselves after a gruesome week at the office,
when reuniting with old friends who have been overseas for years,
adding a lil something new to our dull relationships,
or to curb your desperate need for some sinfully delicious prime steaks.

I would recommend 
Le Meridien's 
FLAMES Steak House. 

Step into their comfy restaurant,
 just situated at the side of the hotel lobby. 
Grand leather seats with headrest and armrest
 ensures comfort and privacy to patrons. 

The intimate, almost romantic atmosphere of the restaurant 
had quite an impact on me. 

Nearly instantly, I felt relaxed 
and had the temptation of calling up my man for a sexy dinner date. 

A minute after sitting down at the dinner table, 
we were served this delicious Greek bread with condiments of garlic butter and olive oil.  
Greek Bread with assorted condiments
Crusty on the outside and full of grainy goodness! Healthy too!
I really like that they provided more than one choice of spreads :) 

 Portion size looks small because I'm on media invitation
and just can't eat SO many different dishes in its original portion servings.
So, do go try this restaurant and believe me,
their actual portions are definitely bigger than what i'm having!  :)

Jasmine Tea Infused Duck Breast Confit
Shaved Fennel, Caramelized Fruit, Cress and Peach Dressing
The chunkiest pieces of duck breast, soft and chewy. Flavor that isn't overpowering, just nice.
Try this if you are like me, I've never tried medium rare duck meat before this!

Cappuccino of Jerusalem Artichoke and Macadamia Nut, 
Truffle Oil and Fresh Herbs 
Something different than our normal choices of mushroom or chicken cream soups. 
This darling is served in a cup! 
And the deliciously smooth mixture makes it so enjoyable that i couldn't help but 
close my eyes while appreciating each sip.

Avocado Tapenade, Scallop, Japanese Tofu with
Mandarin Orange and Miso Dressing
Amazing how the avocado and mandarin orange managed to complete this dish! 
Scallops that are perfectly done topped with sesame seeds and crackers,
this is a dish that had so many different textures(chewy, soft and crunchy!)all in one single plate. 

Baked Fillet of Cod, Porcini Mushroom, Asparagus, Strawberry and Red Wine Reduction
The most tender chunk of cod, filled with the goodness Omega-3 oil.
The deeply flavored, strawberry infused red wine sauce is an incredible compliment.
A french inspired dressing, simple yet so satisfying.

Maltagliati Pasta with Chicken Fillet, 
Cherry Tomato and Basil Pesto
First thing i noticed about this dish is the fragrance.
I've already had SO MUCH good food but one whiff of this...
I knew this is one pasta I just cannot miss despite my attempts of going on a diet.
Not too heavy and irregularly cut,
this dish is enjoyable with its delicate mint and olive oil,
 topped with tomatoes and chunky chicken pieces!

Passion Fruit Sorbet
By far the most unforgettable dish with its grand entrance of dry ice induced smoke,
a big scoop of sorbet placed in a shell of a frozen apple!
For the healthy conscious peeps, this one aint too sweet so INDULGE.

Slow Cooked Black Angus Beef Fillet 
with Braised Red Cabbage, Baby Vegetables 
and Shallot Reduction
MELT in your mouth kinda beef!
Tender doesn't even begin to describe the perfectly-cooked beef;
 I could literally cut it with my fork.
This steak was off the charts!
One mouthful of this and i just refused to even talk to my friends.
SHADDAP and let me enjoy this in peace!

Swiss Milk Chocolate Mousse 
with Crispy Rice and Raspberry Puree
Desserts should always be as fun and colorful as this! 
Both healthy and sinfully good, with the goodness of fruits, some sweet crisps and indulgent cake! 

Finishing this dish, I thought to myself :
 " Ah..... this is truly THE best dinner yet! "
Ended my night at the Flames restaurant with a cuppa.
