Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill


We recently dined at Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill at Traders Hotel. And nothing beats the view of the KLCC Twin Towers while dining at Gobo. 

For dinner we treated ourselves to Chef Mun's 4 Course Degustation.

We started off with an Appetiser each, GUP Garden Salad and Balsamic Marinated Tuna. The colourful Garden Salad was a delight. The mix of baby carrots, thinly sliced grilled capsicum and onions, cherry tomatoes and asparagus, drizzled in house dressing was a good start. I have to say that the marinated Tuna with smoked eggplant and basil leaves did one better.

For starters, it has got to be the Chef's Daily Special Soup of the Day which was a light and creamy pumpkin soup. A silky and textured soup, with crunchy croutons to give it an extra oomph. 

We also chose the Spinach &  Ricotta Pappardelle pasta. The handmade fresh egg pasta was delish and nicely paired with the sauce - pine nut, sage and zucchini with a dash of lemon zest.

For the mains we ordered the rib eye and Seared Salmon. The 150 days Grain-Fed Angus Rib Eye was cooked to a perfect medium rare, served with fresh summer vegetable and caramelised onion relish, sprinkled with feta cheese.

The pan seared Salmon was cooked just right, tender and crispy, where it counts. The flavour of the risotto was sublime, made with a pistachio pesto and Truffle oil. 

I'm always looking forward to dessert; our last course of the degustation. We choose the Mango Panna Cotta and Coffee Opera. The Mango Panna Cotta is my personal fave as I'm not that much of a coffee fan. We were truly satisfied after the 4 course meal, the service and quality are tops. We can't wait to come back and see what chef Mun comes up with next?
