Prime at Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur

KL's best steakhouse, in Le Meridien Hotel

Prime is definitely a welcome treat for carnivores. Set in Le Meridien Hotel, this steakhouse has wooed much of Kuala Lumpur since it opened its doors in 2004, claiming to serve up the best cuts of meat in town. And this declaration is not unfounded – it has been a consistent winner with numerous local food awards.

Easily one of the city’s most romantic restaurants due to its elegant ambiance, Prime is a good choice for a low-key, candlelit dinner and a great place to indulge your appetite, with almost all of its menu offerings on the hearty and generously portioned side of things.

Interior Design

The restaurant’s location right beside KL Sentral station means that it is easily found and something about this comfortable spot captivates the young and stylish – we think it is probably due to its stunningly simple interior design. Plenty of dark wood stocked wine racks, plush high back chairs, golden wood floors and modern artwork result in an art-deco European bistro feel to it. Needless to say, meals here are complemented with a great selection of wines from all over the world.
   
Prime’s major USP is the fact that it has a serious attitude to beef and produces excellent steaks imported from Australia, Japan, Argentina and USA. Ranging from bone-in cuts to slabs of differing marbling and gradients, the kitchen (helmed by Chef Antoine) focuses on bringing out the natural flavours of the meat.

 

Food

Food-wise, the menu at Prime does not just encompass steaks – there are also classic western dishes such as seared sea scallops, Caesar salad, clam chowder and more. However, it is their steaks which deserve star billing: sold by the gram, there is a heavy focus on Blackmore Wagyu beef and we love the fact that wait staff do a great job of explaining the distinctions between the different cuts of Halal-certified meat.

If you are looking for fall-off-the-bone meat, we suggest prime rib in a light black truffle jus – a hefty slab of meat done up lightly-crisp on the outside and deep pink on the inside, making for bite after bite of tender, juicy and buttery-tasting beef. All bovine-starrred dishes come with a side serving of creamy truffle mashed potatoes, crisp wild green asparagus, and fat and salty Idaho steak fries.

Dessert

When dining at Prime we recommend saving some tummy space for dessert – there’s a good variety but there are a few standouts. Chocolate junkies can have a wallow in the classic tiramisu (RM30), a decadent dessert of layers of mushy ladyfingers, perfectly soaked in coffee liqueur, topped with creamy mascarpone cheese and dusted with coffee powder – two words best describe it: blissful extravagance.

Besides that, another highlight from their afters carte du jour is silky crème brûlée, infused with heavy cream and a nutty paste – though we are usually not fans of this custard-based treat, this is one version that stole our hearts.
