Throughout the month of July 2015, Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill at Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur will be featuring local sustainable seafood in their "Seafood Treasure from the East" promotion.
"Our aim is to promote and bring local sustainable seafood to our hotel guests," said Sous Chef Kelvin Kilin. He further explains that the seafood is mostly sourced from Sabah.
This seafood promotion features 1 appetizer, 1 soup and 3 main courses (online menu can be viewed here). To start, we were served the cured local seabass (RM30). Loved its light, tangy taste which whetted our appetites for the courses to come. The local seabass is cured for at least 8 hours with salt, sugar and herbs and is served thinly sliced with chilli soya, calamansi dressing, green mango and papaya slaw, peanut shallot and pomelo.
For the soup course, we had the clam broth (RM26) which comes with 2 types of local clams; lokan and sapak, topped with king prawns. The clam jus is tinged with fresh turmeric, ginger and asam keping to give it a slight tangy zing.
Hubby chose the pan seared red snapper (RM60) as his main course. The fish was beautifully cooked and served with a capsicum, pineapple and cucumber salsa and spicy tomato coulis.
"Wow" and "I chose well", went through my mind as my mains of grilled king prawns (RM90) was placed before me. The plating is exquisite, as always. Three butterflied king prawns, perfectly grilled, are served with a cucumber veloute, tomato salsa and lemon butter sauce.
We also shared the seared seabass (RM55), a simple yet delicious fish dish. It definitely had lots of Asian influences such as sauteed bak choy, warm soy sauce, and crispy ginger.
For desserts, we ordered the traditional mascarpone tiramisu (RM20) and New York cheesecake with blueberry compote (RM22) to share. Enjoyed them both thoroughly ;) (Desserts are from Gobo Chit Chat)
Light and lush
Decadent, smooth and creamy
Hubby's sweetheart :P
