I’ve been to Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral a couple of times since it opened – mostly for drinks and to catch up with friends. So far, I’ve had light bites at Nook and drinks at Mai Bar and W XYZ. The hotel is trendy and vibrant, even the staff echo that vibe.
Nook is a good place to go to if you’re looking for simple, light bites. The Nook Beef Burger (RM18) I tried was of good portion and decent enough to satisfy your burger craving.
I liked the fried chicken that came with the nasi lemak. The rice could have been more aromatic but the chicken made up for that.
Another item I tried was the Sarawak Laksa (RM18). I’ve yet to visit Sarawak so I don’t have a benchmark, but this was fragrant from the assorted spices and the laksa broth was nice and thick.
Try the six layer chocolate cake at Nook. I love how it was presented – super fun to eat. You basically push your cake out, like a popsicle.
At Mai Bar, the Mai Tai is served in a Tiki Totem cup. If you like your cocktails sweet, this is for you. I liked the Techy-tini – a citrus drink with whole grapes in ice cubes and chardonnay – at W XYZ.
