Graze at Hilton Kuala Lumpur Hotel has revamped their weekend brunch menu! Some new items are so intrigued that we ended up going back again during last long weekend. Ordered from appetizer to main course to dessert, because the price is really affordable. Weighing from the nice ambience, use of fresh produce and high quality ingredients plus free parking, you will be surprised at how worthwhile it is to dine in Hilton KL than many other cafes out there.
We started with GRAZE homemade pastry. Selections are kept small but not the flavours. Shatter-crisp, flaky outer layer with beautiful honeycomb-like buttery layers within, Summergirl can easily had 3 to 4 all by herself. She highly recommended the Strawberry Danish, really good.
Homemade Granola, Greek Yogurt, Seasonal Fruits, Agave Syrup RM20
Homemade Bircher Style Muesli, Apple, Banana, Raisin, Mixed Seeds, Yoghurt, Fresh Berries RM20
We enjoyed this more than the Swiss Bircher Muesli, which was first launched on GRAZE brunch menu September last year. More nutritious with plenty of fruits in the bowl, more refreshing and easy to be accepted by us who doesn’t really eat muesli.
Caprese Salad, Tomato, Mozzarella, Fresh Basil, Aged Balsamic RM30
You may not be able to get full by ordering just this, but ideal for sharing. Sliced tomato and mozzarella cheese interlayering each other, lightly flavoured up with aged balsamic dressing. The simple, classic way that can hardly go wrong with.
Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese, Onion Rings, Capers on Rye Toast RM32
If we were to choose one item from “Fresh Start” list, this will be the first choice, followed by bakery items. We had bad experience with not-so-OK smoked salmon from several cafes last month, so it was really glad to be served with tasty slices of smoked salmon again in GRAZE Hilton KL. Rich smoky flavour without overwhelming saltiness, pairing well with cream cheease, onion rings on try toast. Had all together in one go for best flavours.
Sauteed Tiger Prawns, Two Onsen Style Poached Eggs in Glass with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Mixed Cress, Multigrain Bread Stick RM30
Ratatouille, Fresh Basil, Single Poached Egg, Parmesan on Sourdough Toast RM20
Coming to “Eggs” choices. There are five to pick from the latest menu but recommendation wise, it is difficult because all are lovely. It depends if you love to have it in poached eggs, scrambled eggs or omelette. We personally enjoyed Single Poached Egg, Ratatouille, Fresh Basil, Parmesan on Sourdough Toast (RM20), as well as Sauteed Tiger Prawns, Two Onsen Style Poached Eggs in Glass with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Mixed Cress, Multigrain Bread Stick (RM30) – a dish that has got us impressed since our first visit, and still equally delicious till today. Must-try.
Grilled Black Angus Gillet Mignon 100g with Sunny Side Up Egg RM68
Done eggs, time for meat, poultry and seafood. Glad to see that our favourite Bavarian Meat Loaf with Lyonnaise Potatoes, Spinach Creamy and Fried Egg (RM48) is still on the list (yay!), together with items such as Grilled Black Angus Gillet Mignon 100g with Sunny Side Up Egg (RM68), Grilled Black Angus Sirloin Steak 120g with Bearnaise Sauce (RM58), Lava Stone Grilled Lamb Cutlets, Herb Crust (RM58), Chicken Schnitzel, Warm Potato Salad, Lemon (RM40), Pan Fried Salmon and Snapper Fish Cake, Tartar Sauce (RM40).
Pan Fried Salmon and Snapper Fish Cake, Tartar Sauce (RM40)
For those who enjoy croquettes, Pan Fried Salmon and Snapper Fish Cake, Tartar Sauce (RM40) can probably gain your liking. Fish cake made from salmon and snapper, forming creamy soft filling shielded by thin crispy, golden brown outer layer, further topped with tartar sauce that delivers tangy touch that helps flavour up the entire dish.
Decadent Valrhona Chocolate Souffle RM30
Finally, Summergirl’s “main course” had arrived. LOL. Dessert girl if you know her well. Decadent Valrhona Chocolate Souffle first try. Perfect “bloom”, pillow soft souffle filled with moist and deep chocolaty. We love this lots! If you like souffle, this is GRAZE Hilton KL is the place you should check out apart from Wild Sheep Chase Cafe.
Hot Pancakes, Pear and Berry Compote, Ice Cream RM25
For diners who prefer brunch on a sweet side, Hot Pancakes, Pear and Berry Compote, Ice Cream (RM25) and French Toast, Seasonal Fruits, Maple Strup, Creme Anglaise (RM25) are highly recommended. We enjoy the former the most – fluffy round pancake, dressed with pear and berry compote that carry sweet and sour concoction, crowned over with ice cream. While the berry can be more common, what makes this compote noteworthy is the pear slices, as it adds in refreshing, juicy touch that places a contrary to the berries sauce.
French Toast, Seasonal Fruits, Maple Strup, Creme Anglaise RM25
For French Toast, the presentation certainly gets all the winning points. Photography worthy, thanks to the laborious effort on topping arrangement, all on top of a thick French Toast brushed with a layer of chocolate sauce. Pour creme Anglaise over and start to indulge in, yummy and no sharing.
For beverage, selections cover from coffee like latte, cappuccino, americano to tea including English Breakfast, Earl Grey, chamomile, Fancy Sencha, jasmine gold fruit juice and latest exciting addiction- brunch cocktails and mocktails. Price within RM20 – RM30.
Warm Apple and Raisin Crumble Tart, Vanilla Ice Cream RM25
If you wondered whether you should dress up for your brunch in this 5-stars hotel, yes you can but since weekend brunch is meant to be “lazy and comfortable”, Hilton KL welcomes you to fit into this without having to worry about your attire. You can even come in with short pants and t-shirt. Just be who you are, the way you like it, walk in and dine like a king with great hospitality from the team.
