Tosca Trattoria Italiana
Let’s take a break from all the figures and posts on stocks. Over the weekend, a client of mine invited me to tag along with his family for dinner at a posh little restaurant called Tosca at Double Tree by Hilton KL. The place is located at The Intermark in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. We had trouble locating the restaurant but eventually found it by the pool at the hotel.
The dinner buffet was by invitation only for Hilton Premium Club members and it came with a free flow of alcohol. We got to pick from a selection of Chardonnays, Tiger or Heineken beer and Strongbow apple cider. Dinner started with caesar salad prepared in front of us, they made a big deal out of it being “prepared right in front of our eyes” but it was just a waiter preparing salad. Nothing to shout about. The Chardonnay that I started with however was well worth it.
For me, the best part of the meal was the roast beef. They cooked it just the way I like my beef – medium rare. I had my beef with really amazing ravioli. Of course I paired these with red wine. There was also roasted chicken but I only had eyes for B-E-E-F.
By this time, I’ve quite a bit of wine to drink. I took a break and had some cold cuts together with a pumpkin risotto.
And lastly, came dessert. We were all feeling tipsy and really full by this time. I almost decided against getting dessert but fortunately I didn’t. Dessert was also prepared in front of us and served with Kahlua liquor. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but the dessert served today was one of the better ones I’ve had.
After dinner, we sat by the pool and ended the night with a few more glasses of wine. Of course financial matters were discussed throughout the dinner but I will not bore you with the details.
It was a truly enjoyable night for me and I’m really grateful to have a friend and client who has been nothing but generous since we started working together. I was told it cost a little over RM100 per pax here.
Have any of you been to Tosca before? Or tried Hanare (one of the best Japanese buffets I’ve had) here at the Intermark?
I hope to return to Tosca again. Till then, thank you and thanks for reading.
