Inside of The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Kuala Lumpur, there’s a fine dining restaurant known as The Library. As one would assume from the name, the interior resembles a library. The restaurant features comfortable furniture and white tablecloths. The library serves a menu of the day, everyday. This boils down to a one-page menu with a handful of choices offered at a set price, pay a little extra and you can enjoy wine-pairing. We made sure to visit during a recent stay at The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur hotel.
Our server for the night was Adriana who was a delight. She started us off with a Ritz-Carlton Signature Spritzer cocktail, a refreshing way to start the meal. The first course soon came which was Oyster Beignet. These were deep fried oysters, tasty indeed.
The next course was a sweet corn and lobster soup. The consistency was rich and creamy and once again very enjoyable. I liked the way this meal was going!
For the main course we had four options to choose from, however, the 300g Australian Angus sirloin practically jumped out of the menu at me. This giant piece of meat was served on a large wooden platter with a few vegetables, fried potato wedges, roasted garlic, hollandaise sauce, pepper sauce and regular salt. When it comes down to it, all I really need is a nice steak with salt along with a glass of red wine. Adriana must have read my mind because she came to offer us a glass of a 2015 Sister’s Run Shiraz. It was all perfect, just a bit too big for my stomach.
We didn’t think we could fit anymore food in our bellies, but nonetheless, our desserts were on their way. There were two dessert options, the chef’s selection of the day and the chef’s selection of international cheeses. We went with one of each and ended up getting to choose our dessert from a dessert cart.
Our experience at The Library inside of The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur was wonderful. This meal was a great addition to our lovely stay at the property, which you can read about in a this article. The quality of the food, setting with live music and the service were all top-notch. I can absolutely recommend you to have a dinner at The Library restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
