Cantaloupe can’t really fail: sitting on the 24th level of The Troika, with unobstructed views of the iconic KL Twin Towers ,KL Tower and sensational views of the city’s skylines from its huge soaring window, is always spectacular, by day or night and adds wow factor the the dining experience.
Found out that Cantaloupe is currently having this “Express Gourmet Lunch Menu/Set” and decided to give it a go. Reservation was made through emailing the Troika Sky Dining’s reservation team and it was fast, easy and effective. Upon arrival, we were greeted by one of the friendly staff members, and were led to our table right next to the window.
The Express Gourmet Lunch is served during weekday’s lunch hour from 12pm (last order at 2pm). A succession of eight courses which can be taken leisurely, or within 45 minutes depending on your schedule.
Dining atmosphere was great. We felt pampered and enjoyed our meal in unusually comfortable chairs and tastefully designed ambiance. Although all courses were served in around an hour’s time, pacing of the meal was leisurely but consistent. All dishes were excellent with very strong emphasis on visual presentation. Taste wise – some of the dishes were slightly below my expectation (would have expected more from this restaurant). Service was nothing less than top notch, precise and exquisite.
All in all, I think lunch at the Cantaloupe was more like an experience as a whole for me (with clever plating and presentation skills, amazing views and luxurious yet comfortable ambiance). Some of the dishes were a bit of a letdown but overall it was a great lunch session!
