Experience new flavours at the Steakhouse, Hilton Kuching

It’s a brand new year. And what better way to start it off than by checking out what the restaurants here (in Kuching) have to offer. In this article, we have the perfect candidate to start off the year’s gastronomic adventure with.

The Steakhouse at Hilton Kuching has a new set of dishes that will surely please your palate. And they’re all available via the restaurant’s new a la carte menu.

Masterfully crafted by the restaurant’s young Chef Mohammad Munzahir, each one of the dishes boasts many different flavours from various parts of the world. These flavours come together to create what the 24-year-old chef calls “global cuisine”.

The new a la carte menu allows the diners to "design" their own special four-course or three-course meals. They can choose from a huge variety of appetisers, soups, main courses and dessert from the new menu.

This writer recently had the chance to sample some of the exquisite offerings available in the new a la carte menu, and the breakdown is as follows:

Appetisers and soups

As you flip open the menu, you'll first see a selection of appetisers. Choices include Beef Carpaccio With Marinated Mushrooms, Parmesan Tuille & Basil Oil and Marinated Salmon with Deep Fried Oysters & Saffron Beurre Blanc among others.

Fresh Oysters On Ice with Lemon Wedges, Wasabi Cream, Cucumber Pickles and Shallot Salsa are also available.

One particular dish which this writer would recommend is the Baked Garlic & Paprika Freshwater Prawn with Herbs Toast & Provencale Butter. The prawn is perfectly cooked and has a mild spiciness to it, as well as a hint of sweetness. The bread is toasted to a crisp. As you take a bite, you’ll notice the distinct flavours of the herbs on the bread. A glass of white wine would go perfectly with this dish.
