Prime Restaurant

Celebrated my 1st anniversary with my girlfriend at Prime Restaurant in Le Meridien KL. Been hearing quite a lot about this place and was keen to give it a try and what more on this special occassion. Here are some pictures taken with my Samsung D600. Wanted to bring my digital cam but "pai seh" lar... go fine dining also bring cam shoot here shoot there. So, sit back and enjoy my tummyummy experience in Prime.


Started off with some really delicious bread, served hot with 3 types of butter... plain unsalted, mint and spicy mustard. Until today, the tastes still lingers in me. The one thing about the 3 butters was how well the aroma and taste blended so well with the bread, which were lightly spiced already, thus making it really enjoyable. Tummy rating: 9/10










Now, if the starter was already mind blowing for me, i cannot wait for the mains we've ordered - an 8 oz Aussie Fillet Mignon and an 16 oz Aussie T-Bone. As for sides, we had jumbo asparagus and portobello mushrooms which were also, cause for concern after my first bite. They were GOOD. I'm never a fan of jumbo asparagus but what we had were flawless. Tummy rating: 8.6/10



This is the medium done 8oz fillet mignon, in which i had a small bite. Nicely done, nigh perfect texture and true to what others have said, it's the way they do it that leaves it such an impression.
Tummy rating: 9.1/10













Next came my T-Bone, quite possible one of the best T-Bones i've had in my life. The flavour, aroma, texture and almost every criterion you'd care to mention in steaks is represented in full force here. Clearly, the force was with me. Tummy rating: 8.9/10






For a night like this, you cannot not have red wine, and because we are both responsible drinkers and responsible drivers, we also had a litre of Evian mineral water. The wine list was pretty extensive, and the selection, top notch. We had a glass of 2003 Beringer Pinot Noir from Napa Valley and a 2005 J. Lohr 7 oakes Cabernet Savignon, a very characteristic and aromatic wine, best for BBQ and grills. Tummy rating: 7.89/10

So, great evening, good food and lovely companion. Prices are slightly steeper but it's worth it.
  1. Wine: 70
  2. Evian: 28
  3. Mignon: 70
  4. T-Bone: 110
  5. Jumbo Asparagus: 20
  6. Mushrooms: 20

Till we meet again.....

Hiya all, please do not be shocked. My blog has not been hijacked neither was there a sex change operation. ;>

Fezzaboy's a good foodie friend of mine who just got tired of standing by & watch me have all d fun blogging & make new friends. So, while deciding whether to maintain a blog of his own, I gave him a trial ride. Hey, u know I'm quite bad at updating mine so he can help keep u entertain.

Everybody say hi & welcome to fezzaboy, k? Group hug, anyone?

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

Hey fezzaboy! No need for trial run la...faster create ur own blog and find out how addictive it can be. :-) I notice Prime's been featured a lot in the newspapers. Would like to try it one day, though.

Thanks for warm welcome...

For the time being, i'm just gonna contribute to this blog as and when i go makan-makan at new places, which is what i usually do during weekends..

My weekends are spent car testing with my ed, housework and also the administration of a local car club.

I'm still praying for a miracle.. and that is to make Friday a weekend, coz my weekends are kinda short, despite having Saturdays off.

Thankue all once again and remember, we live to eat....

after such a review, i am sooo happy i bought the le meridien card. cant wait to try prime now...which until now, has been getting such mixed reviews.

Fezzaboy said...

Yes, the card is really worth it coz if i'm not wrong, the card entitles you to a 30% discount off.

Rasa Malaysia said...

Ah, no wonder...I was going to ask what 1st anniversary you are taking about...so 1st anniversary of knowing Tummythoz, dating Tummythoz, or 1st anniversary of Tummythoz blog? :P

Tummythoz said...

Fine dining on 1st anniversary? Hah! Mine was really arnie-wear-sari. Hmm.. either it was KFC or good 'ol McD.

myCoffee said...

Nice review! Have been wanting to try this restaurant. Not a regular red-meat lover but occassionally, the craving just kicks in, particularly after viewing such yummy-looking photos. :)

Precious Pea said...

Hahaha...when i read the first line, i was like OMG, tummythoz is a guy!!!!

Hi Fezzaboy!! Happy anniversary to you and your gf. DOn't worry, create your own blog as you oledi got a lot of supporters here.

fatboybakes said...

yar, fezzaboy, that's a pretty impactful first post... managed to generate such a flurry of comments.

oh, the lemeridien card gives you 50% if you are dining just the two of you. these hotel cards follow the principle of one eat free. (min 2) so if 2 go, its 50%, 3 go, its 33%, 4 = 25 % and so forth, with a minimum discount of 20% normally.

FireHorse said...

Hi Fezzaboy, as long as you makan kaki same as Tummythoz, welkam, looking forward to the opening ceremony of your own blog. Hop over to my kopitiam sometime with Tummythoz and I'll have kopi o kau kau waiting, did I get your order right Tummythoz?

Kok said...

Tummythoz,
You should come to Perth to try the best T-Bones I have tried before. You can check it out at my blog for 2006 April's post. One of my very early posts. ;)

Kok said...

Oppss..I didn't noticed this post is posted by new contributor;fezzaboy. So, I should direct my above comment to fezzaboy instead of tummythoz. :P Only few days I didn't blog hop and there's so many changes. haha
