The Lounge at Hilton Kuala Lumpur @ Kuala Lumpur

Hilton Kuala Lumpur is one of my favourite hotels in Kuala Lumpur. I think I have literally worked from this hotel for years now. The Lounge is a cafe cum restaurant that is located on the Ground Level and this is my favourite spot. I have had business meetings here, personal catch up with friends and even sat here quietly sipping a drink and working on my laptop. The ambiance here is simply magical. The set up is amazing so much so it allows one to unwind, relax and be able to concentrate on matters in hand. Despite having been here so many times, I have never blogged about this place and as I was here this afternoon catching up with an old friend of mine, I just thought that perhaps I should just share one of my favourite places via this blog.

At The Lower Level Of The Cafe
This cafe has a split level. The upper level is were the piano is located and the lower level spans in a 'L' like shape, giving complete privacy and an awesome view of the city. It the afternoons right up to late evening, there would be an in house pianist who would be rendering some soft numbers. The lights would be dimmed down and the atmosphere is so romantic and magical. You would have to be there to experience the soothing ambiance.

The Menu
The above is just some of the pages from their very extensive menu. The prices commensurate the quality of services. Do remember that this is a 5 star hotel. They have a good spread of most of the Malaysian favourites. Sometimes, if one of the items that you have requested is not in the menu, the staffs would be courteous enough to get it for you from the other establishments within the hotel. Till date, I have not seen or experienced a situation where they were not able to serve me something that I had requested. That's 5 star service. Initially, we were thinking of having some high tea but as we had already had some heavy lunch, we decided to go light with some drinks and snacks. Professionalism is always present among the waiters and they know when exactly to interrupt you and when not to.

Teh Tarik @ RM 21.00

An Excellent Cup Of Tea
I have had Teh Tarik in a number of hotels in the Klang Valley and this is one of those places that fix a perfect cup of tea. The set comes with a cup of tea, a Chocolate Chip Cookie and some water to finally wash it down. The Tea was perfect! Not too sweet and not too bitter.  And it was served hot! I would rate this at 9.5/10 . Definitely one of my favourite hotel's to order a cup of Teh Tarik!

Peppermint Tea @ RM 21.00

Peppermint Tea and a Chocolate Chip Cookie
They have a good availability of tea and coffee and this Peppermint Tea comes in a small pot which is good for about three cups. It is also placed on a small burner to keep the Tea hot. A Chocolate Chip Cookie is served with this set too. The Peppermint Tea was another excellent drink. And the Tea leaves were fresh. If they were stale, the Peppermint infusion would not be bold and that was not the case here. An excellent one especially when you plan to sit a couple of hours having some quality conversation. I would rate this at 9.5/10 .

Sugar
Besides the usual White Sugar, they also serve you with Brown Sugar as well as artificial sweeteners. Just ask any of the waiters and they would be more than happy to assist.

Scones with Butter and Cream @ RM 41.00

Scones
The Scones here are pretty good. Very 'English' in taste and they are served hot. I just love the taste of these scones as they are so rich in their flavours. I would rate their Scones at 9.3/10 .

Jam & Cream
They serve their Scones with some Jam and Cream. If this is not sufficient, you could always ask for more and they would oblige. Both the Strawberry Jam and Cream were fantastic. I would rate these at 9.7/10 .

Tau Still Spring Water @ RM 28.00

Spring Water
They have a variety of bottled water but this is my all time favourite here. This Tau Still Spring Water is priced at RM 28.00 per small bottle and they also have a larger one. It's served chilled and the water is just so refreshing. Better than the usual RO or Mineral Water. Do give this a try the next time you are here and you would be able to comprehend what I am trying to convey here.

Tea With A View
Although there were not many food items that we tried today, at least you would be aware of such a great place. Once again I would like to repeat that this is just an amazing place. If you have had a long day and are looking for a place to unwind or perhaps looking for a good place to have some conversations be it business or personal, then look no further. This is the best that I have come across till date and for a number of years now, this has remained my favourite. I have even tried Double Tree but it is just not as good as this. A wonderful place that comes with good food and a fantastic ambiance.
