Superlative chargrilled cuts of dry-aged Australian beef & well-executed cocktails at sleek bar & grill
May 25th, 2015
Established within the Hilton Kuala Lumpur since 2013, Chambers Bar & Grill continues to impress with its sophisticated concept of modern grill cuisine and polished cocktails. The marquee attraction at Chambers Grill are the signature grill skewers – selections of prime meats, seafood and poultry grilled on skewers with one of three techniques – over the charcoal grill, upright robatayaki style, or over hot lava stone. Traditional steakhouse aficionados are well catered for with the selections of dry-aged premium cuts of Australian beef – perfectly charred and full of flavour. While at the adjacent bar, well-executed classic cocktails, premium spirits, and an extensive selection of wines satiate the most demanding of thirsts. Serving lunch and dinner daily, Chambers Grill offers an attractive dining experience within its sleek, contemporary dining room, good for both business entertaining and sociable occasions.
Chambers Bar & Grill occupies a compact space at the main lobby level, with the inner grill room separated from the bar area by the floor-to-ceiling glass-encased wine display. Subdued lighting and a stylish contemporary decor, with a muted palette of brown and tan, imbue an air of restrained luxe. At one end of the room, the gleaming open grill kitchen is the centrepiece attraction, with the culinary team working the grills and plating dishes. Outside at the bar, the mood is relaxed, with comfortable sofa settings and high tables abutting the long counter. Partially encapsulated within a curved burnished metal canopy, the bar space is deftly delineated from the voluminous main lobby.
Distinguishing the premium meat served at Chambers Grill is the dry-aging process conducted in-house. In the custom-built, climate controlled cabinet, prime cuts of Australia Black Angus Rib Eye, Prime Rib and Fillet Mignon, together with the 1 kg Wagyu Tomahawk, are dry-aged for between 14 and 36 days in a process that extracts excess moisture, concentrates the flavour, and tenderises the meat. Available either as part of the skewer selections – or as generously sized individual cuts – the chargrilled steaks are the highlight of the Chambers Grill menu. Included among other skewer options are Hokkaido Bay Scallops, Black Cod fillet, and 300g Freshwater Prawns. Skewer selections can also be ordered at the bar for more casual, tapas-style dining.
Proficiently executed classic cocktails, made with premium spirits and fresh ingredients, headline the beverages served at the bar. The well-constructed list includes solid versions of Old Fashioned, Negroni, Mojito, Martini (four versions) and Margarita; as well as the locally-inflected Jungle Bird and Malaysian Mule. Other options include coffee cocktails and non-alcoholic mocktails.
Chambers Bar & Grill opens daily for both lunch and dinner. Consistently popular, table reservations for the grill room are recommended.
